007 was good, but there's something better on the way!

I saw the new Bond on Friday. I definitely enjoyed it. Daniel Craig is great, and the new "rough" bond is something I thoroughly enjoy. I miss the gadgets (there are... none), but being a mid-century modern buff I soooo appreciated the incredible sets and art direction. MK12 did a great job with the visuals (I became a fan of the little Kansas City company after Stranger Than Fiction).
I was a little worried that my father-in-law was going to have a heart attack in the first 20 minutes (it's pretty action packed), but he survived.

I do need to point out that in retrospect, the thing I enjoyed most about the movie was a trailer at the beginning. Somehow, I forgot that the new Star Trek was opening soon. So seeing the trailer was a nice surprise. And having the trailer actually be good was... oh, yeah.

Sylar is going to be awesome as Spock. I love that J.J. Abrams is directing. The guy playing Kirk actually sounds a bit like Kirk (and that's fun). So maybe this thing could actually be... good?

I'm not anticipating it as much as the new Tron, but I am pretty excited about it.
