I still can't find if the IMAX closest to me will keep this beyond one week. They haven't posted showtimes for anything but the new Twilight movie for the weekend after this coming one. One thing that is everywhere is a UFC fight for St. Pierre vs. Condit. I don't follow UFC that much, but is this supposed to be such a big deal that theaters are carrying it?

After one viewing, I'd say this is easily the best Bond film since Goldeneye.

After two viewings, I'd say this is the best Bond film since On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Ebert's review: http://www.rogerebert.com/apps/pbcs....IEWS/121109990

4 stars (same rating he gave Casino Royale, which oddly isn't mentioned in the review though Quantum of Solace is). It's an all out rave review.

Is Supermallet not allowed to give honest reviews until the official release or something?

Why do you think I'm not being honest?
