Sky fall

Saturday night, my husband and I took advantage of having free and willing babysitters in the house (my parents) and went to a movie after dinner. We got the kids completely ready for bed and went to see Skyfall. I wasn't impressed with the previous Daniel Craig Bond films, but this one was good. I won't give away any of it. It is a bit grittier than the days of Connery and Moore but of course you need to change to keep up with the times and what the audience wants.

The standard elements were still there - a casino scene, the martini, the standard Bond introduction, etc - and given that this was the 50th anniversary of the movies there were a few homages to the older movies (some subtle some not so much).

It was nice to get out and something that we need to do more often - just the two of us. Lately when we've gone out it's with other couples which is fun too, but we need to make time for the two of us. I need to start scheduling date nights for us at least once a month.

  1. I am a little bit of a James Bond junkie:-) This last one was good... I just wish he didn't have to sleep with every woman he encounters. I think he would still be a good spy without it. Congratulations on date night!


I love all your comments, but admittedly have been a slacker about replying to all your kind words. I've recently received a bit of spam on my posts so will now be moderating any comments - and not allowing anonymous commenting. I hope that will help me stay on top of replies.
