    It's amazing! Back to the old Bond classic. Definitely in the top three Bond films ever.

    I hated the last one... it was just like a generic action flick and Daniel Craig was not that great or comfortable in the role. This one rocks. They've updated it without losing the essence of Bond, Craig acts well (apart from a few points where he is just reading his lines), but it is the baddie who steals the show. In theory a camp villian in a 2012 Bond film shouldn't work but, again, they've modernised and his acting is Oscar-worthy.

    Totally agree. It's the best Bond in forever. A lot of credit has to go to Sam Mendes who directed it. There are no stupid gadgets, cars, laser beams etc. The last portion of the film is very back to basics. Kinda reminded me of a cross between Straw Dogs/Home Alone but trust me it works.

    It was an interesting storyline because it focuses on M as much as it does James Bond.

    I love the dynamic between Dench and Craig. Also hear there's a little gay twist with Bardem...enough to fuel my fantasy of servicing Mr Craig however he prefers. What do you think?..top or bottom?

    This is a serious blockbuster. I waited too long and had to snag the last two seats for the very last showing Saturday night at ipic. Perfect luxury and comfort for a 2 1/2 hour flick. Only go there now for movies. I'm hooked and it's worth every cent extra.

    #SKYFALL: holy shit! great story. brilliant opening sequence, beautiful production, old meets new, contemporary meets classic. a fitting 50th anniversary nod.

    also saw the Designing007 exhibit at TIFF Lightbox, which was great collectio of studio props, production art, costuming, tear sheets, and film openers.

    daniel craig's got some funny lines and looking as ripped as usual. he's only 1 yr older than me ;^)

    great movie and bond admits to sex with a man at some point. I just wish they hadnt dispatched judi dench, she was a great twist on the M role as a female.

    Ahhh! Sean Connery, the original 007. Oh my goodness, if only you youngsters could have been alive to understand how much we young boys loved Sean Connery, 007! Suave, cool, collected, white boy! When 007 first came out, he was the shit! for all races of young boys. hahaha.

    I'm going to see it tonight! I'm actually excited about this one. I've been hearing a lot of great things about this movie.

    Daniel Craig is probably my 2nd all time favorite Bond.(Sean Connery being #1) He feels less like a cartoon and more like a actual person you can sort of relate to.

    That was a great line! Saw it last night and we both really enjoyed it. Action packed with a little of the nostalgia included. Definitely a must see.
