Re: Skyfall - Grading & Discussion

Saw it today. Stupid thing is, I had my hopes up since all the people said how this one went back for a more traditional Bond feel. The missing gun barrel sequence at the beginning, banned again to the ending, should have been my clue that those comments were bullshit.
Granted, the pre-title sequence rocked and actually had quite a few Bond moments. But after that, it all became just another modern spy-flick like Jason Bourne or Salt, with a totally a-typical "Sam Peckinpah is Home Alone"-finale.

So, it was a nice action thriller, but not a "real" Bond movie, to me. So, right now, my disappointment is to fresh for me to cast a fair vote.

But, now that absolutely everything is in place (you know, Q, new M in old office, Moneypenny, Bill Tanner), I hope the next one will finally deal with a world-threatening plot again.
But tomorrow, I'll rewatch "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol", to remind me of the fact that even modern spy flicks still can be fun.
Give Peace A Chance.
