RE: Skyfall

A reasonable film, kept my attention all the way through, some gritty and convincing performances. Q just annoys me, I didnt like him in that BBC on the bbc drama, where he plays a radical type. Preferred the Quantum of Solace to be honest, but I guess we have set ourselves up for a Sean Conneryesque period for the next couple.

The DB5 end saddened me too....

Not good at all............Bond is well past his sell by date. Same format and style. A big car chase to start off with and a shoot out to finish. Nothing in between to capture or hold the imagination or keep you at the edge of your seat. No doubt another epic will be rolled out in a few years to milk the cinema going public. It's just a great way to print money.

Yep. We need something different. Maybe opening with Bond baking a Victoria sponge cake to take to a charity whist drive that evening and ending with him reading a good book in front of a log fire with a nice glass of Cherry and his faithful golden retriever asleep at his feet.

In between we are treated to some taut action as he remonstrates on the phone with his accountant over his annual tax return before he goes out to buy some fresh bread and a nice piece of haddock for his tea.

That's the formula though. It's a bit like watching your 23rd Laurel & Hardy film and saying that yet again it's about how a fat American and his thin gormless English mate degenerate some theoretically-simple task into a catalogue of blunders and slapstick set-pieces.

Or watching a Korean film and expecting it to have a happy ending.  And no one gets murdered with a hammer.
