Weekend movies

Puss in Boots - Alana and I saw this with a friend; it was quite entertaining, with a lively story and some terrific humor; kick ass female character, voiced by Salma Hayek, was bonus

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - a beautifully crafted movie with wonderful performances, but not a perfect film; a bit confusing and a bit slow - it felt not only set in the 1970s, but also produced in the 1970s, with a very different sensibility from movies today; it's not necessary for a period movie to reflect the film making style of that era - I found myself thinking a lot about Munich, a film with some similar themes, but which manages to be a lot more absorbing and involving than this one.
