Joe Ohlenbusch (Eatatjoes90) | 6 comments I have just seen Skyfall and it has renewed my faith in the James Bond movie franchise. Has anyone else watched it yet? and if so what did you think?

Paul (PaulLev) | 5 comments I didn't need my faith renewed, but I thought Skyfall was one of the 3-4 best Bonds ever. My review http://paullevinson.blogspot.com/2012...

Debbie | 1 comments I've seenSkyfall three times so far. Really enjoyed it. Agree that it is one of the best the franchise has put out. Myabe the bestm not based on a Fleming book. Wish they had plans to put Skyfall into a book format. Always nice to "get inside" the characters heads as you can do only by reading the story.

Paul (PaulLev) | 5 comments I'd read that book in an instant (or, start reading it, in any case).

Joe Ohlenbusch (Eatatjoes90) | 6 comments My friend is blind and I when I took him to see the movie, he enjoyed it but had a little trouble following and kept asking me if they novelized it. I hope they do.

Chris Allen (IntrepidAllen) | 6 comments Great reviews here - Skyfall is going to be one of my all time favourite Bond movies. Even better, it's how Fleming would have wanted it, too: http://www.intrepidallen.com/blog/201....

I couldn't agree more Joe. I reviewed the movie for my publisher and said that I was more engaged by Daniel Craig this time around than I was in QUANTUM OF SOLACE. I thought he was incredible in CASINO ROYALE - I saw that film half a dozen times. Back then, he convincingly portrayed the raw material that would become the secret agent – the wet-behind-the-ears new boy under immense pressure to prove himself worthy of Double-0 status. A nice parallel given that Craig’s appointment as the new 007. Craig had as much to prove as Bond himself. His hunger to prove the detractors wrong was palpable in CASINO ROYALE and in SKYFALL he has very successfully channeled that hunger again. I loved it.

Michael | 3 comments I loved the movie, I would put it in the top 3 Bond movies ever. I'm just upset they didn't do a novelization of the movie. Bond is a literary property first and every movie should have a book version.

Alex Bott (Alex75) | 2 comments It was ok


message 17: by Michael (new)

Michael (mikequist1) I'm getting it from Netflix tomorrow.


message 18: by Michael (new)

Michael (mikequist1) So now I've seen Skyfall. Definitely one of the better Bond films. The best one? I'm not sure. I really liked Golden Eye and Casino Royale (the more recent one) really blew me away.

Chris Allen (IntrepidAllen) | 6 comments Skyfall limited edition DVD set is released today in Australia, and I'm giving myself the afternoon off to GO GET IT! Must run, not walk, to the nearest JB Hi Fi.
