    The preliminary reviews are in. Apparently, Skyfall is the best Bond film yet -- even Oscar material -- which clearly means that the franchise is going into territory it doesn't belong. They are taking themselves way too seriously now. It's a shame, because Craig is such a great Bond. Why can't he just be an action hero like all the rest of them?

    To make matters worse, apparently the gunbarrel sequence is at the end of the film again...
    ON THE FRANCHISE'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY!!!!

    Way to piss all over 50 years by giving the iconic sequence of Bond films the shaft once again. Okay, I understood why they did it in Casino Royale, kind of understood why they did it in Quantum of Solace, though that Bond outing wasn't really worth it. But now it sounds like they're making excuses to put the sequence everywhere except where it belongs.

    And to make things even worse, the title sequence, from what I've read, is not gonna include dancing girls. My God. I don't care how good this movie is, it's ruined for me either way.

    Anyway, I'll probably do more ranting about this when I see the actual movie.

    So, should Craig get plastic surgery?

    I know. Such a shame.

    *swoons over Daniel Craig*

    All the reviews I've seen so far have all been either solidly positive or warm, glowy, "want to have your babies" positive. In fact, I've seen a few say that this movie is the best of the franchise; and more say that the movie takes the trappings of the material and reinvents the franchise.

    Which either means I'm going to Bondgasm during the movie or I'm going to be bonecrushingly disappointed ala Prometheus. Toss a coin.

    I guess this isn't the Bond film I should start with, huh?

    Why doesn't Daniel Craig ever get to make bad puns like all the rest of the Bonds?

    ...I hated that "pun" shit. It's not much more advanced than an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie.

    I knew this was going to be the best Bond movie in ages.

    And I'm glad Craig-Bond doesn't shoot off cutesy one-liners after he dispatches a baddie. He's a killer. A cold-blooded, ruthless killer. And he only seduces women when it serves some sort of objective (beyond getting laid, that is).

    In the current run, my favorite scene was that brutal hotel fight in Quantum of Solace.
    "Just die already," was the look Craig gave after stabbing the assailant in the neck and wrestling him to the ground.

    Morbid black humor defeats cheap puns any day of the week.

    Well, I'm still wary.... I remember TDKR and MI4 both getting really high marks on RT, and I just saw some reviewer today who said Skyfall was of "Nolan" excellence... so now I'm still going to wait and see.
