Topic: Skyfall nitpicking video

I actually started out looking for a vid/trailer to jog my memory so I wouldn't watch Skyfall whilst trying to chose a Bond to watch but after seeing this, I feel a bit protective of the slagging poor old Skyfall gets ajb007/smile

I do not fully agree with this. I like Skyfall, it is not my favourite Bond movie, not by a long shot, but I do enjoy it. However, quite a few of the things mentioned in this video are spot on. So like all movies (and they review a lot of movies in this fashion), Skyfall has it's flaws and agreeing with the video does not mean that you hate the movie.

Re: Skyfall nitpicking video

ajb007/lol O and one more thing to note is that he's able to do it in 4 minutes, so there isn't a lot wrong with Skyfall. Most movies he reviews take much longer (like GoldenEye http://youtu.be/ToWUx1cfDgU !)

Re: Skyfall nitpicking video

I never get past the first ten seconds of that video, where Moneypenny says, "He's in the black Audi" and they call it shameless product placement.  What was she supposed to say?  He's in the black German luxury car that's not a Mercedes or BMW?

Now the Rolex/Omega discussion in CR, that was shameless product placement.

Re: Skyfall nitpicking video

I wonder would Roger Moore's line in TMWTGG " A green Rolls Royce "
Be considered product placement, today ?  ajb007/lol

Haha, a lot of what this guy says is true.  This rant on imdb has even more:  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1074638/boa … f_=tt_bd_1.

To be honest, I think if you put your mind to it you could
Pull apart any film even some of the best like FRWL, but
Only if you wanted to !  ajb007/biggrin

Re: Skyfall nitpicking video

I find these videos hilarious!  ajb007/lol
I fully agree with the remark of showering with Solange after hearing that she's been raped and sold with the age of 12.
I found that pretty creepy when I saw SF in the cinema for the first time.

If he made those with the Dalton movies, each one would run 30 minutes with a lot of tears  ajb007/lol  ajb007/lol  ajb007/lol

Re: Skyfall nitpicking video

Everything Wrong With is a popular youtube series that gives dozens of popular films the same treatment.  The only other Bond film they have critiqued is Goldeneye. 

I watched quite a few of them last night: Gravity, Crimson Tide, Toy Story, Frozen, The Dark Knight, TMNT, Die Hard ...

"Like any great artist, I want to create an undisputed masterpiece in my lifetime."

1. Moonraker 2. The Spy Who Loved Me 3. Dr. No  4. Tomorrow Never Dies 5. Goldeneye
6. GF 7. TWINE  8. OP  9. AVTAK 10. QoS  … and then the rest.

I have, and yes, mistakes got pointed on, but I knew them already.

Re: Skyfall nitpicking video

This video is a mix of legitimate points and some silly jokes just to up the number count of "sins".

Skyfall has more holes in it than swiss cheese, but who cares when you're dealing with a movie that's so cinematic and rousing.

You did mean Sévérine, rather than Solange  ajb007/martini  ajb007/bond
