    Skyfall is a terrible title.

    Mr. Chicken Little says this will be his favourite Bond film to date.

    I really really really hate that tom ford does the suits for james bond. Not only do we have an unsophisticated bond, but at least in casino he wasnt wearing garish suits.

    What makes you think TF would put Bond in trademark Tom Ford suits? TF directed a film in which nobody was wearing Tom Ford; he clearly understands that the job of a costume designer is not to impose one's personal style on the characters.

    That said, Bond has sucked for years, so who cares?

    You've clearly not seen "A Single Man".

    To my understanding - TF definitely designed Colin Firth's outfits.

    i was hoping so. his suits looked super classy in that movie. but the suit was minor imo compared to the rest of the visuals in that movie. especially the backdrops and the close ups of all the various items, patterns and textures. it was superbly done.

    I have seen a single man, and I actually thought (all pseudo-intellectuality and emotional vapidity aside) that the clothes looked too fussy and showy. I saw quantum and thought the lapels were too wide, and that the movie was crap. Brosnan at least was cool, and funny, and even though his suits have a certain showy-ness, he still looks like he knows what hes doing and there isnt a single ripple on his whole outfit —every time i walk into a TF store or past the TF boutique, i just see wrinkles and more wrinkles and it just looks sloppy. Its like bad dolce and gabbana.

    So yeah, maybe for daniel craig TF is appropriate. He looks absurd or like hes going to go clubbing in dubai. But this isnt james bond.
