SKYFALL *spoilers*

Postby Chris » Fri Nov 09, 2012 10:15 pm

Just saw it in IMAX.

Half a really really great movie. The second half is the best Bond movie to date (going by my not being a Bond fan until the Craig movies)

The first half was boring me, though. The cold open/action sequence was fucking great, however.

Javier Bardem was also really good in it. I've seen complaints that he was too campy, but that's partly what I loved about his character. He was so over the top, but vicious and brutal at the same time.. kind of Joker-ish, now that I think about it. And his cyanide-maimed face was gross.

And Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw as the new M and Q, respectively, are also great additions to the movie/franchise. I look forward to the next two (they're still being filmed together as one story, right?)

Overall, I think Casino Royale was a stronger film but this is very close. I definitely saw the "Dark Knight" of the franchise comparisons. Mendes is a great director, who doesn't get anywhere near the mainstream love he should.

I just came back from seeing it. A very good Bond film though a bit predictable in some ways. Bardem's character was over the top, but I guess that was the point.

Very predictable with the new M and Moneypenny parts, but still enjoyable. I like how they went out of their way to bridge the gap between old Bond and new Bond, sometimes to the point of throwing subtlety out of window.

"Go ahead, do it! Eject me! See if I care!"

Bardem was definitely the right type of camp. His initial scene with Bond and the "seduction" was brilliant. His scenes with M were also well done, if a bit awkward.

Great fight scenes throughout, but the one on the Hong Kong skyrise was easily the best.

I'm looking forward to this new, fresh, yet more traditional, direction of the franchise.

From Mr. Steed to M. Fiennes has come full circle.

I don't think so, no.

Actually, that's what the recent reports/rumors are saying, PDH.

Yeah, I heard them and then I heard elsewhere that it wasn't happening.

This must be what I heard, Daniel Craig denying the rumour:

“No, I don’t know where that’s come from,” said Craig, “It’s impossible to do a two parter, I heard that someone was talking about that we’re doing a two parter, but that’s the first I’ve heard about it. We can only do them one at a time, they take six months to shoot. You can’t write one movie thinking about the next. All we’re trying to do is get the next one sorted out and it’ll stand on its own and if I’m able I’ll do another one after that.”

That's interesting, although it could be a case of the writer is talking about what he's writing and Daniel Craig just doesn't know about it yet.

It was a good movie but I really didn't like Bardem's campy portrayal. He was more at home in West's Batman than a serious film like this.

Yeah. I suppose Craig wouldn't necessarily know.

It brings to mind Craig asking drunkenly asking Mendes to direct, then calling the Brocolis the next morning to apologize. :lol:

I thought it was a fantastic film that I thoroughly enjoyed, but its at least 30 minutes too long and lags at times. I don't know that I could sit through it again theatrically, but in BluRay at home, that's another story.

Lots of action and corney lines (I love both!). Pretty fun time at the cinema!
