    Classic example of a film that's just been tarnished by crappy sequels/prequels/remakes etc

    You the guy who made it?

    It's excellent editing, and good choice of music!

    We went to see Skyfall today. I'm disappointed to say that I'm not feeling the love. Whilst there was a good set-up, the plot felt too drawn out, Silva was effective as far as Bond villains go but that doesn't say much considering the general quality of Bond villains (and the Joker parallels were clear throughout the film) and the film kept slipping back into the camp feel the previous films had, which Casino Royale so refreshingly cast aside. The cinematography and some of the shots were absolutely gorgeous though. Don't get me wrong, it's a better film than that absolute turd, Quantum of Solace, but it's not a patch on Casino Royale. Fun film but it doesn't quite live up to the hype or previous entries.

    Glad to know I'm not the only one who liked Casino Royale better

    I think they were trying a bit too hard to make it fit to the original idea of Bond with those crazy cliche villains.

    I loved Skyfall! I can see what you mean about the slight reverting back to stereotype with a touch of camp about the thing and one liners flying all over the place, but for someone like me who only ever seemed to watch the Roger Moore movies growing up, it was right up my street.

    Thoughts:

    Spoiler:

    I loved Bardem's villain, even if he does owe all his acting choices to Heather Ledger's Joker. I liked the whole "he was Bond before Bond was Bond, and look how he's ended up" sort of thing.

    Judi Dench is amazing, sadly I'd already been spoiled about M's death, I wish I hadn't of been. My friend didn't know and she was devastated! Haha.

    I was shocked that Severine was killed so early on, the trailer made it look like she was going to be a bigger part of the film.

    I'm not sure I'm going to enjoy Ralph Fiennes as M, although I think it's just because I enjoyed Judi Dench so much and the whole "I'm your surrogate mother but I sort of want to sleep with you" tension that a female M has brought these past few years!

    Wow! Wreck-It Ralph managed a score of 8.4 on IMDB. I cannot wait to see this when it hits the UK.

    The trailer is amazing. Let's hope the film does the book justice.

    Can't believe I've never seen The Nightmare Before Christmas before! Watching it now. :awesome:
    It is an absolutely brilliant film. One of my childhood favourites.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel is on iPlayer. I liked the film, it's a light-hearted romp around time travel.

    Some of the people on the list are hilarious. I'd put my money on Tom Hardy though, especially with the rumour Christopher Nolan is interest in directing future Bond films.

    A black bond as number 1 bet?

    And lol, McGarret as Bond, that is jokes. Tom Hardy seems similar to Craig and I think he is a good actor, but he seems kind of young.

    I think Daniel Craig's signed on for two more films, so Hardy will be older when the time comes.

    With some of the names on the list, I'm surprised not to see Robert Pattinson tbh.

    True I didn't think about that, at least 6 years from a new Bond. The time between films most often was 2 years I think. But if funding issues continue it might be 10 years til we see a new one.
