Yesterday I wasn't online much because we went to see "Quantum of Solace" in the afternoon. It started out well. Sometimes the theater makes you watch 20+ minutes of commercials and previews. Fortunately, we only had 4 previews. However, one was for the new Star Trek movie. I was excited about seeing the movie until they flashed the release date: May 8. I hate that! Why tease us with a movie that won't be coming out for 6 months? By the time it's released, my mind will think it should be on DVD already.
The movie itself makes me realize how strange I am. I'd blame it on age or being a mother too long, but I've always felt strongly about the consequences of actions. It the car chase scenes, I thought of the poor people with damaged vehicles and lost time for the street wrecks. Even insured people have to pay deductibles and that can strain the budget to breaking. I've never enjoyed car chase scenes-that alone makes me weird in this society. In the foot chase, I felt badly for the lady who dropped her bowl of cherries. Whether it was for selling or family dining, it was something she felt badly about losing.
The movie also reminded me how shallow I can be. I want my James Bond to look good, not like he needs a week of sleep.
All in all, the movie was okay. It just wasn't "my cup of tea."
