Slowly – very, very slowly – working back through the Daniel Craig 007 films before watching SPECTRE. This is the third time I’ve watched QUANTUM OF SOLACE, and went into that viewing remembering it as underwhelming. SKYFALL was one I had a positive memory of, however.

Got in a copy of SPECTRE and put it on. Spent the first ten minutes of the thing talking to my wife about what had happened in the previous three films. We were foggy enough that we stopped it and decided to give them all a run one more time. Not sure that was necessary, but I don’t mind an excuse to watch CASINO ROYALE again.

So it has been nearly two months since I have watched a movie. Seriously. Back in early February I watched THE MARTIAN. And then life happened. Shows, illnesses, work sruff, family stuff.

This was supposed to be an afterthought, but turned into a reminder of how enjoyable CAN’T HARDLY WAIT is as a movie.

Saw a few minute of this on cable and was intrigued. This is a movie about a girl who writes a blog. My blog is innocuous and generally reveals nothing about me personally, but her’s is an ‘anonymous’ blog about her life. Watched ten minutes and thought it was good enough to record and share with my wife. We watched it together the next night, and she may have liked it even more than I did. And I really liked it.
