two action packed movies in a week...

We went to see 'Quantum of Solace' at the HiPointe.  You too can rent out the entire HiPointe theatre all to yourself for just $16.  QoS is supposed to start up where Casino Royale  finished 
off. i don't think there is any need to see the previous to see this one.  Daniel Craig makes everything look effortless, everything he touches wants him, he just embodies Cool in this film.  My favorite thing about this movie, the White Jeans, navy shirt, and ankle boots!!  Very british, very mod!!

Neither of us had seen North By Northwest.  What a great opportunity to see it on the big screen at the Tivoli for free to correspond with the 'Birth of the Cool' show at the Wash U. kemper Museum.  I think seeing both of these movies this week went very well together.  Hitchcock, how do you manage, to entertain, movie after movie after movie.  no need for hi tech gadgets, these movies still hold up with time.  you made me feel I was driving that winding road drunk like Carey Grant, i felt so anxious because no one believed his story (just like i felt watching Bjork in Dancer in the Dark) and i was so scared "Eve" was going to plummet to her death from Mount Rushmore. 

Both Movies have great titles, but could very well have been called "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles!"  i've never seen so much travel in a week.
