    Like I said, everything was fine besides Sony. That shit was annoying.

    That's exactly how I felt.

    This Bond seemed like TDK + MI: 1 combined.

    Saw it again for second time last night with parents non-IMAX.

    Think it could have been much much tighter and shaved probably 15 minutes off run time. Didn't seem as long this time though.

    Also, I thought there was enough exposition for Silva's actions, I mean its 007 there comes a point where you just need to know that the psychopath is angry and you're good to go.

    Really wish
    he would have put a hat on the rack when walking into Moneypenny's office or at least had a more direct reference to her wanting a date with him rather than "I expect we'll have many close shaves

    Probably my favorite opening credit ever. Really was beautiful (as was the rest of the film). They even managed to foreshadow how Bond would be weak and confused through their illustration. It was stunning how for a few seconds the opening credits looked exactly like it could have been the film.

    The way they re-booted the series by literally destroying icons of the past and re-using others... pretty sweet .

    What I really wanted was a shot of the 50 years of 007 screen at the end. Tried to get it with my phone, couldn't. May see it again just to get a photo.

    Well, that was a rockin' good time for the Anglophile. Creepy and treacherous Spaniard. Loyal but disposable Scot. Drinking at times when it would seem that one's life depends on intact motor skills. Unresolved mummy issues channeled into grim sense of duty. Check, check, check, check.

    Plus unbelievably good looking actress I'd never even heard of before.

    Roger Moore did Bond well when pushed to do so. Live And Let Die, The Man With The Golden Gun, and For Your Eyes Only are all good films and better than any of the Brosnan films. The rest of Moore's Bond films are varying degrees of rubbish.

    Really? In my eyes, GoldenEye is better than all the movies you mentioned.

    Not sure if it was discussed already, but you missed one of the most obvious ones....Macallan Scotch. It was in practically every drinking scene, including when the hottie got shot in the head.

    We've already pointed it out. And nope, it wasn't in every drinking scene -- not even close. In fact, most of the time it's been Courvoisier VSOP.
    BTW -- Heineken paid $45 mio.

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    The real benefit for the studio was not the $45 million paid, but all the cross marketing. All the Heineken ads featuring Bond were a windfall for getting the film into the mind of consumers.

    Indeed. A win-win, at least promotional-wise. Like I said, Heineken was one of the less obvious placements in the movie (never seen the full label).

    I think Walther was also mentioned before. my dad just told me he's looking to pick up a PPK. he bought the P99 after seeing it in a Bond film as well (Casino Royale I think)

    If you like the style of the PPK, but wouldn't mind it in a more modern calibre, try the Walther P5c. I'm not one of those .45-or-bust dudes, but .380s don't fill me with confidence.

    That scene made no sense to me. Why did he have to get caught to try to kill M? He just broke out of prison, then went on a public transportation system where he conveniently had bombs in place to blow up a rail line and have a subway crash down on Bond at the exact right spot. Then despite the fact that he has automatic weapons and helicopters and explosives and who knows what else at his disposal he charges in to kill M with nothing but handguns?

    The final shootout sequence at Skyfall I'm ok with, but that escape sequence was just dumb.

    Have to admit though that it was one of the best looking Bond films of recent memory. Sam Mendes and Roger Deakins are a great director/cinematographer team and I hope they continue working together.

    When he is following Patrice in Shanghai, and it's showing all of the skyscrapers, was definitely one of the best shot pieces of film in recent memory.

    Speaking of product placement, here's Omega's newest ad campaign.

    The blatant one for me was when bardem actually said macallan and the watch shot when he was shifting. I didnt notice/wasnt irked by the rest.

    My thought from that was "Damn, now that's a modern city."

    The bit with the neon jellyfish reflected through all the panes of glass while Bond is sneaking up on Patrice was cool.




    I also loved the shot of the mountain valley in Scotland, with the stream and road in the middle and the fog rolling across the scene. Was just stark in a beautiful way.
