Skyfall

Okay, so we went to see Skyfall last night. I saw that the IMDB rating was 8.1 and there was a lot of build-up prior to the release of the movie, so I went in ready to be impressed. I guess you can see where this is going. 

That's right. It wasn't as great as I had expected. I mean when you go into a 007 movie, I'm sure you all expect a lot of gadgets and a fantastic plot. Well, there were no such gadgets - but there was one awesome car - and the plot was extremely weak. I don't want to go into the details and spoil it for those who haven't watched it yet, but I must say I was disappointed.

Update: The plot was really really predictable.

It wasn't boring, but there were some scenes that stretched on a few minutes too long. And as far as I am concerned, Bond did not have real mission.



The actors did quite well though. Daniel Craig, Judi Dench and Javier Bardem did a fair job portraying characters that were, for the lack of a better word, stupid. 

Now, I have only watched just a few James Bond movies, but I'm sure they could have done better.

Although we went out to see a 007 movie, that was not the highlight of the day. Nope. 

That would be when I walked into a dustbin.

  2. Darn, I was really looking forward to seeing it! Well now maybe since you lowered my expectations it will be better.

    Haha how did you walk into a dustbin?!

    1. Heheh...yea, that might work :)

      Well, I didn't really walk 'in' to it. I kinda bumped into it when I was walking while looking at the train.

    Ooooh, my son wants to see this SO badly.
    I'm not a huge James Bond fan. In fact, I can think of a lot of things I'd rather do than watch a James Bond film, although I do like Daniel Craig.

    I'm glad to know I won't be missing anything if I don't go! (because there is a 99% chance I won't!)
