10/13/2010 Spy night

Since Burn Notice doesn't start new episodes until November, I have to get my bogus- Hollywood-overdone-spy-story fix some other way. The Bourne series of movies started OK with "The Bourne Identity," disappointed with the sequel "The Bourne Supremacy," and now the tiebreaker will be "The Bourne Ultimatum." Usually Hollywood-type thrill movies are barely tolerable, but these are slightly above that.

The first movie was redeemed by Franka Potente, who played his funky girlfriend (made much more ordinary in her brief appearance in the 2nd movie). She starred in a truly good offbeat German movie Run Lola Run. Too bad she's not in the 3rd Bourne movie, but I'll just have to suffer watching Matt Damon instead.

Rare to be thinking "movie" on a weeknight, but, I need it.
