Re: Skyfall AJB reviews - SPOILERS!
The CT Analyis
Higher degree of characterisation.
Titles + Adele.
Good humour throughout.
All scenes in China.
Secrets of Bond's past.
Bond enjoying death.
Best line - Bond: 'Oh good, there's a train coming.'
Plenty of action and adrenaline.
Great use of London and MI6.
Bond becomes less of an icon to viewers.
I'm less decided about whether or not I see Craig as a good Bond.
M overshadows 007 and this gets confusing.
General lack of substance in the film.
Plot is lame and fades away through the film.
Exitement comes and goes and some parts are rather boring.
Silva is a good villian? Doesn't compare to 006 or Renard etc. Hardly seemed like he was in the film. Too camp.
Bond girls have very short roles.
Lack of establishing scenes throughout.
I agree with some that it still felt too short.
Trailer spoiled key scenes.
But I really enjoyed it. How everyone is describing it as the Best Bond ever is beyond me though. I think there's some dodgy marketing tactics going on. Guaranteed they are paying an office in India to flood the internet with good reviews. And they've invited the right people to the right parties beforehand.
Anyway.. no Purvis and Wade from now on !
Feel free to respond to any points raised by PM or replying.
Are you for real?
Boy scout movies and novels (which as a woman I STILL have to read today when that close friend drops a new "must read" book in your lap again) are getting on my nerves since I first discovered lipstick and literature.
Can't handle a woman who smokes and exhales it like an ancient seductive Chinese cloud serpent?
You might want to check out Harry Potter.
