Jason Does Manhattan

The Wife and I went to see The Bourne Ultimatum this weekend. Good movie. Tense. Fun. Realistic. Fast-paced. Smart.

Okay, not realistic so much as occasionally cartoony, but yes, it's a fun ride. The cool thing about all three Bourne movies has been the willingness to show what it's really like in Europe -- there's some cool things and some not-so-cool things, and some parts of Europe really suck. We're still talking about how bleak Moscow looked in The Bourne Supremacy.

The Wife was quite impressed with Matt Damon. He's in great shape and was, apparently, quite easy on the eye. There are some really, really good fight scenes and an amazingly intense, if not quite believable, car chase.

Go see it already. You'll have a good time.
