Somehow, I can see M's death now. Judi Dench isn't getting any younger.

That would be a first if that happens considering that all of M's predecessors are usually phased out to retirement off-screen.

No, I think it has something to do with happened with Vesper or perhaps something else from Bond's past. After all, the word "Skyfall" struck something in Bond's mind when he was evaluated by the psychiatrist in the first trailer.

The chapter of Bond's life with Vesper is done in Quantum

They had state explicitly that Skyfall is more about M's relationship with Bond.

Oh, well... Story to be followed. One thing for certain is the relationship between Silva and M; that should be interesting.

Ben Whishaw as Q looks promising BTW.

One thing is certain here, if someone of importance gets bounced off, it will makes great drama as Bond goes personal.

That means more Craig as gritty Bond. Which is good as along as they don't pulled a rushed outing like Quantum

Adele's song is all over the internet and radio channels right now. For old school James Bond fans like me, this is your type of song and I just love it.

This James Bond Missed Getting Drunk In A Bar

Quote:
“You talk to people in the movie business who have been doing this 40 years and they all say the difference is that, back in the day, you could go and have a drink in the bar, get drunk, fall over, have a good time, relax, whatever, and no one would know about it. But now everyone’s got a camera,” Daniel Craig tells Vanity Fair writer Juli Weiner of the challenges of being Bond. “Not that all I want to do is get drunk in a bar, but that’s an example. So you can’t live a normal life anymore. Because it will become public knowledge that you’ve whatever—gotten drunk in a bar or skinny-dipped on a beach or something. Things that normal people do occasionally. And in a way that’s kind of—I’ve got to be high-class. I’ve done a lot of things in my life. But you have to think in that way. Which is sad, because I like bars.”

Well, with the advance screening and eventual early reviews, looks like Skyfall could be the best this year, and maybe even for the entire Bond franchise.

Glad to hear it. I heard it almost broke the Harry Potter opening weekend record in England. Sadly my initial plan to go down in NYC will need to be revised.

Got to ask before I even consider seeing it:

How bad is the
1) Shaky Camerawork?
and/Or
2) Rapid Editing so fast you can't see individual shots?

I have BAD motion sickness, and my stomach (and head) cannot tolearate CRAP like "Cloverfield", "The Bourne Supremacy" and ANY Ridley Scott film, which ALL think that by operating the camera like you are having a seisure in the middle of an Eartquake makes a film look "realistic"

So how bad is it?

IMO Skyfall is not that bad, really. It’s better than Quantum of Solace's "manic" camera movement that’s for sure.

Btw, are you sure about Ridley Scott’s movies being shaky? I find the camera movement in his movies quite “tame”. For example: Kingdom of Heaven, Gladiator, Alien, Blade Runner, Prometheus, etc. They’re not shaky at all to me.

As for Cloverfield, it's a "found footage" movie. They have to follow the "gimmick" of an amateur camera-person. What did you expect? Surely they can't shoot it with well-placed cameras.

Man, just checked theatres around me. Only one of the ones I like to go to is showing it, and they're only showing it in "XD" (not counting the midnight showing in digital). This is rather odd. I'd figure Bond is the kind of movie to open... everywhere.

I watched Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace (this one was a bad idea) last weekend to prepare, just in case I didn't have power this weekend.

Hopefully, I'll get to see again, but on IMAX, this weekend. How excited am I for this? I've been watching the trailers pretty much every day, and I rewatched Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace this past weekend instead of reading genomics papers

Watched it. It was really good. Granted I haven't watched the old James Bond films but my parents are huge fans and they say it was one of the best they've seen so far. And they indeed loved Adele's song for the movie.

Loved Skyfall, first half felt like a proper bond film, second half felt like a home alone film, couldn't ask more! Lets admit something though this movie was made to write off a main character which did have to be done sad as it is but such is life. Great send off.
