Don't get to the movies much lately, but seen a couple of good ones last couple of weeks.
The Valet: Delightful romantic comedy, french with subtitles. The folly of the middle aged man with a penchant for younger flesh, and the costs that go with it! Mind you, the younger flesh was very tempting and since the apple we don't have a great track record. Great acting and not intellectually or emotionally challenging - just easy fun.
Casino Royale: Not a real fan of the latest Bond movies, but this one is a cracker - he even gets realistically hurt believe it or not. Not all bright and glitzy, in Hollywood style, but more "European" in feel and that's great. Apparently runs reasonably true to the original book, but not having read it I can't say. As it's a populist movie I am sure the critics will pan it as usual. Do they ever like a movie that the masses enjoy? Guess they are just above all of that!
