skyfall

nobody's seen it yet???

it's a fun movie. a little humor, a little action, a little suspense, a little grit, and a little homage. poetic editing and themes too. watched it in imax. was worth it.

but i had a tough time controlling my giggling every time bardem smiled... his hair is just as bad as in no country for old men...

Really enjoyed it.

Can we talk spoilers?

Im about to.
Dont read the rest if you dont want to hear any. Cause I totally will.

I had totally forgot that classic bond's "M" was a man. I think I replaced all of my M memories with judy dench.

It was clear at the end what the movie was intended to be, as far as the bond timeline goes, but during the film I was so confused. Was this the third of the prequels(early bond career)? Following right after quantum? Or was this a sequel to all the other bond films.

I kept telling myself it was still a "young" bond, but all the talk of getting old kept nagging at me. Like he was near retirement. And then when the classic car dies a horrible death I was sure this movie took place after all the classic bond films, and the pierce brosnin ones. Otherwise why would it be in storage? Sure he could be a collector before he gets one for work, but all the ejector seats and guns? Doesn't seem very bond-esque to ruin a classic. That's something Q would do for a mission. Not on your personal classic you keep in storage.

Then the end reaffirmed where this sits in the chronology. But I was so confused during the movie.

Also, who is the caretaker again? I feel like I should have recognized that actor...

casino royale was a reboot, like batman begins. it ignores all previous films.

I thought it was the best one since the Connery days. It was by FAR the best of Craig's. Casino Royale was good, but it had a lot of slow, boring parts; you just can't make watching other people play poker exciting. And Quantum of Solace bugged me for two reasons: 1) it tried to be a sequel to CR...and Bond movies have historically all been stand-alone and 2) when it got to the big reveal of the evil scheme I couldn't help but say "Really? That's it? THAT'S their big plan?"

Skyfall was awesome start to finish...and Bardem was an awesome villain.

I thought it was OK, didn't find Bardem all the great. It needed more Bond girls and was a bit slow in parts. Not the best, but not the worst.

I will say, though, that it felt very Live Free or Die Hard-ish at times.

"ZOMG! HAXZORZ!"

Albert Finney; just an actor...no relevance to prior Bond films.

Speaking of the new "M"...remember in Casion Royal when Bond says "I always thought M was a randomly assigned letter. I had no idea it stood for..."

Well, we never found out what it meant for Judi Dench's character, but seeing as the new guy's name is Gareth Mallory...
