I was going to make a thread like this, but it's already been done. Okay, I'll finish out my Pros and Cons series with this post.
Skyfall. 23rd film in the Bond series, the 3rd to feature Daniel Craig. The development cycle was 4 years long because of MGM's uncertain financial situation. Coming after the relatively less successful Quantum of Solace, Skyfall was widely acclaimed and stands as one of the best selling movies of all time.
*** The theme song (Adele did a great job capturing the magic of the older soulful theme songs)
*** Opening set pieces (The film wastes no time giving you an eventful action packed introduction)
*** Strong acting (Craig as a human Bond, Bardem as a terrifyingly insane villain and a great outro for Dench)
*** Excellent cinematography (Great directing, and every dollar of it's massive budget shows in the final product)
*** The burning house 3rd act (Dedicating a lot of time in one area, redolent of the train act in From Russia With Love)
*** Show's Bonds vulnerabilities and weaknesses (Particularly showing his home and where he came from)
*** Bond is armed with his wits (Just a knife and a handgun, supplied by the wonderfully witty new Q)
*** 21st century relevant themes (Addresses the issue of cyberterrorism and the good/bad of modern technology)
*** Lots of nice scenes overall (M at the conference, Silva in cop disguise, Shanghai fight, Bond wetshaving)
*** Story isn't very original (Borrows a lot from The Dark Knight, Silence of the Lambs, Home Alone, Goldeneye and The World Is Not Enough ; but older classic Bond films borrowed elements from other movies too)
*** Plot is a bit contrived (Some parts make no sense, don't adhere well to reality, but it's a movie, so I don't care too much)
Severine (Bond pursues a sex slave. That's like Abraham Lincoln freeing the slaves and say "Hey, want to work on my garden")
How will Skyfall age? I would guess that it's going to age well, because there are a lot of undeniably good elements to it. Sure, the glitter and glow might wear off in years to follow but even so, it's a big accomplishment for its time.
