"Quantum of Solace" – Um…Wha..?

Posted: May 19, 2009 in action/adventure, Moog's Reviews, Quantum of Solace

Today I’m reviewing a movie off my Netflix list:

Quantum of Solace


Listen, I’m not a huge James Bond fan.

I’m also not gay.

However, I’ve seen both Daniel Craig versions and I have to say this:

Sometimes, I look into his dreamy blue eyes and chiseled body and want to be a Bond Girl.

I wish that last sentence never left my fingertips.

Did I mention I’m not gay?


I also mentioned I’m not a James Bond fan.

However, I kinda liked ‘Casino Royale,’ even though my knowledge of poker extends to these two things:

1) You use cards
2) You must use only your feet unless you’re the goalie

One of those may be wrong.


So, with me kinda liking ‘Casino Royale,’ I decided to rent ‘Quantum of Solace.’

How was it?

Three minutes into the movie and I was completely fucking lost.

You know, I should have figured this shit would be over my head when the name of the movie sounds like the title of Stephen Hawking’s thesis.


However, there was enough jumping and chasing and shit for me to keep going:

“Oooh. Cool jumping.”

…and…

“Oooh. Cool chasing and shit.”

There was some plot that involved some weird looking bad guy, and Bond trying to get revenge for the death of the chick I forgot who died in Casino Royale, and something about water in the desert and…

..hold on…

…more jumping.

Cool.

Okay. I’m back.

As far as the ‘Bond Girl‘ in this one?

OH. MY. GOD.

Here she is:


Whoops.

Wrong picture.

Here she is:


Holy fuckshit, Batman.

Now I KNOW I’m not gay.

Mostly.

Regardless…between all the jumping and chasing and hot chicks and incoherent plot and fucking stupid title…

I give it my score.

My Score:

2 Mooge Splats (out of a possible four)


You can raise that to 2-1/2 Splats if you value action over being able to understand what the fuck is going on.

Now, excuse me…

I’m working on my own thesis.

It includes that Bond Girl and a lot of lube.

I’m totally winning an award for this.

Moog out.

    Yes to the cool action and all, but I hardly remember this movie at all. I almost rented it from Netflix again by accident.

    As for the spooge factor, I felt like Elaine Bennis wathcing The English Patient. Give me something I can use!!!
