Spend £30+ on groceries at a Sainsbury's store and Skyfall BD will be discounted from £18.99 to £12. (Sainsbury's online price is also £18.99; Amazon, £14.99; 'Horse-co' instore, £15.)
Or just give it a month or two and it'll be way cheaper everywhere. I've never understood the need to rush out and buy a film the day it's realeased...

or, given how weak and muddled the plot is, just rent it from lovefilm. It's not a good enough movie to warrant a second watching, unless you've got unlimited free time.....
I have some home cinema and Sonos stuff.
Remember it broke box office records...
I agree the plot was a bit muddled, but the film was hugely enjoyable. Besides, I need to fill the slot to complete my James Bond collection.

Fair enough, but what a pointless comment - no-one's asking you to buy it asap.
Jeez! Next, I suppose we'll have the usual suspects chiming in with their reviews/opinions/comments re the film itself...
[EDIT] Beaten to it
Rather than spend fifty quid taking the family to the cinema, I promised to get the blu-ray as soon as it came out, and watch on the projector.
The Steelbook version arrived from Amazon this morning, so looks like the Cobalts will be watching Bond this evening. (Shame my subwoofer has broken ).
£14.99 for the nice metal blu-ray, vs £50 for the cinema is a no-brainer.
Oddly, the DVD in the case says "Region 2 NTSC" - why would a Region 2 DVD be NTSC? (especially as the Blu-ray is "Region B", so definitely for Europe.)

Did you pre order the steelbook? If so, when did you place the order? Amazon had dropped the price briefly to £11.89 & you're covered by price promise.
"Though much is taken, much abides, and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are... One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."
How can you dislike that
Much better on second viewing...... PQ + SQ reference Quality...... the explotions the subway .......and it dawned on me how very very BRITISH it is and it's grown on me immensely today

Watched it tonight on Blinkbox for £3.49. Brilliant opening sequence, worth the money alone.
After that, very anti-British as always with Hollywood. Bond drinking and popping pills, unshaven, arguing with M all the time, not even liking the British Bulldog, baddie is a rogue British agent, Q is a geek. Even the new M is at odds with Bond. Everything really to make M16 look bad. I want the old Bond back; sharing quips with Q and M with them all on the same side. And I want real baddies, not some camp fairy!
Great cameo by the Aston Martin, loved the Scottish gamekeeper, enough good bits to make it a cut above the average thriller. Some good nods to the past too with the palm print gun again, Moneypenny et al.
Finally, M starts by referring to the PM as he but it's a she at the inquiry.
"Clair Dowar MP" was head of the enquiry, but not PM.

Yep, far too clever for me. I'm going back to Toy Story!!!
So Hollywood that BAFTA class it as a British film...
Bond drinking and popping pills, unshaven, arguing with M all the time
You mean just like in the original Fleming novels?
Bond goes REALLY off the rails in between missions in those.
I want the old Bond back;....And I want real baddies, not some camp fairy!
Best you don't watch Sean Connery in 1971's Diamonds Are Forever, with its two gay assasins then

You really need to pay more attention, yes when he first meets Ralph he's not impressed but by the end of the film he's clearly happier with him, as he's proven himself in action.
Just like in License to Kill and Die Another Day you mean?
Yeah! Bring back Kidd and Wint! Proper villains they were!
That's the bit that makes no sense at all.
Ooh, sneaky edit!!!
I bought it on the day of release, yesterday, using this 12 quid offer and really enjoyed it.
Like dandycobalt (think thats his username), I avoided the cinema saving ourselves a small fortune and have been looking forward to its release.
Cant really understand the negativity - its a bond film and the best one for ages. What more do you expect ? Even the wife enjoyed it and thats a miracle on its own !
12 quid well spent. Plus, I have a digital copy and even a dvd version for the parents to enjoy.
