    @Jessy - As I am in America, sadly I have only heard gushing love for it from the UK civilians who got to see it on October 26th, my birthday. I will be blessed with its on-screen presence November 8 at 12:45PM.

    So how was the movie?

    @LakeCharles - Deke is right. The TV spots are more of an action montage, but the theatrical trailers, especially the first one, are far more involved with ominous drama. It looks fantastic to me, and based on the reviews average, it is getting ranked high in the series.


    @Focuspants - I do appreciate it, that's why I linked it above! But thanks.

    I'm a big Bond fan, I grew up watching the earlier movies with my dad. The films aren't exactly my idea of cinematic brilliance or masterpieces, but they deliver a consistent, thrilling movie that appeals to a lot of people. What person doesn't want to be James Bond? A seemingly endless expense account, finely tailored clothes, globetrotting exotic locations, just enough action, and the ability to get the members of the opposite sex into bed with not more than a sideways grin. I think it has pretty universal appeal. They aren't meant to be entirely serious films (Dalton and Craig have both slanted towards this, however) and that is part of their charm.


    I'm pretty damn excited about Skyfall. I've tried to keep spoilers to a minimum and its going to be tough with the UK premier being so far ahead of ours. I'll probably see it at least twice. If its as good as I've heard all the reviews say, and a little campier like Craig promised, I'll be very happy.


    On the sartorial side, I've already purchased a pair of the C&J Islay boots that Bond wears in the film. Pretty excited about getting those. I'm interested in the Barbour jacket as well, but buying Bond clothes is expensive.

    Yeah, I have only seen one and I know it's not fair, but hey, first impressions are important. I'm generally pretty ambivalent about Bond movies, but with all the hype its been getting (here and elsewhere) I thought I'd check out a trailer. At which point I remembered why I am ambivalent about Bond movies.

    Touché, good sir.


    Have you seen the earlier trailers (the one with Bond being interrogated, specifically)? Most of the TV spots have been pretty much just action, but I've seen a couple that actually use some dialogue. Regardless, I think the trailers can afford to leave out some story, as the movie can rely on its pedigree (and fanbase), to draw people in. Basically, I wouldn't write it off as a Michael Bay movie just yet.

    It was all action! I can pay attention to a trailer that tells me something other than a) people will move around quickly and things will get blown up and b) the actors/actresses are attractive. I've watched Bela Tarr's Satantango straight through (twice), so I think my movie attention span is well documented.

    I think that bodes worse for your attention span than it does the movie

    I'll be watching this when it makes its way to DVD probably. One, I don't go to many movies in the theater anyway, and two, I saw the trailer and it bored me. If I have to fast forward through a trailer it can't bode well for the movie.
