Just seen

Casino Royale - Never really been a big fan of the James Bond movies, but this one was surprisingly strong. It was an interesting take to see how Bond became Bond, and that his tragic love with Vesper Lynd is what propelled him to take on such a disconnected, yet suave persona. Plus, lots of cool action scenes.

The Return - My girl Sarah Michelle Gellar has made some awful movies in recent years, but this one wasn't one of them. Sure it was kinda slow at times - and there's no explanation for why a co-worker who was upset over her being awarded 'his' client would drive down to an isolated, small town in Texas to try and rape her - but lots of very solid and jarring camera shots helped give it a sort of Hitchcockian feel. And, still after all these years, she can still make the ole heart skip a beat or two.
