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.
