Jason Bourne 4 Now Aiming for Summer 2011 | /Film

Last we heard, Universal was trying to get a fourth film in the Jason Bourne series on track for a Summer 2010 release. Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass were signed on to return, all they needed was a screenplay and a shooting schedule that fit. But the tentatively discussed Summer 2009 shoot doesn’t seem to be on the horizon.

Some Good news before I post the acid rant.

I love the bourne series, where can you find a series that just gets better as it progresses. Have to say that “The Bourne Ultimatum ” is definitely my favorite of the bourne films. That aside when Matt Damon initially stated that he was to old to make a bourne film this saddened me a little but this was bittersweet because at least they go out in top form. The are doing a fourth film and with the whole team intact can’t help but feel giddy in this must watch movie, at least for a bourne fan (book and movie) like me.

As an aside, personally my I felt that the first book was the best whilst the last book was really weak and was trying to much to find closure that It felt well hurriedly written at times.  The three bourne films used the titles of the book but fans can attest to the fact that much like nick and norah‘s infinite play list a screen adaptation really hast to cut out alot of a books best parts to adapt itselt to the limitations of the medium.

Probably the Best Bond Film Thus Far

Quantum of Solace

Quantum of Solace is just that in my opinion, one of the best bond film, and in my opinion the best bond film thus far!

As Bono said in their comeback album during the Boy Band years (late 90’s) look out boys the men are here! and this is what the director/ production team / crew of Quantum Solace is trying to tell spy filmmaker wannabes. There is still nobody quite like bond. Following the public craving for a high realism in their films bond offers quite fantastic but not unbelievable action scenes, these are the most realistic action scenes of the bond series and probably would give the action scenes of the Jason Bourne films a run for their money.

I’d post a longer review next time, but seeing that I still haven’t finished my long review for the newest batman film (I’ve seen it three times and still can’t seem to express my words in prose.) don’t hold your breaths!
