This movie didn't suck...because sucking requires some effort.

My review of the new Bond film "Skyfall" - By TJ

Dammit James...

I love James Bond movies. I love the cliff-hanging action. I love the Go GO Gadget villains. I love the spy gear that rivals an Adam and Eve Adult catalog. I get mildly damp just thinking about driving all those exotic cars. I especially love the women in them. Octo - something? what was the rest of her name again? She was hot and demure as hell though...THAT I remember.

OHHHHH man was I excited as hell to see the new Bond film as I lowered my usually high standards on dating
and took my brother William. He at least showered and shaved for me...so that was a big plus. Nothing like stink flies to ruin the audio of a great movie...ammarite?

The movie started of with... zzzzzzzzzzzzZZZzzzZZzzzzZZZZZzzzzzzZZZZZZZzZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZzzzzzZZ
ZZZZzzzzzZZZzzzzzZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzZZZZZzzzzzzzzZzzzZzzzz Gunshot and BIG explosion - Holy crap...So what has happened so far? Seems like James has a dangerous perdicammmmmmZzzzzzzzzzZZZZZzzzzzzZZzzzZzZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzZzzZzzzzz Another Big BOOM!!! followed by foreign yelling and evil laughter. What the hell did I miss?...man I love IMAX movies, the sound is so KILLER. Ok there's Jimmy B again, with a gun looking like he's after someone.....Z.z...z.z.zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzz*SLURPDROOLLIPSUCKFACEWIPE...WhaddImiss? How did she ________? Sh*t James... parading around without a shirt- AGAIN? CRAP I need to start working out again...James looks pretty hot-n-sexy for a guy...Why am I inner-monologging and waxing romantic on a naked James Bond? zzzzzzZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZzzzzzzZZZZZZ....BIGGER BOOM, Did he sleep with her too? Finally, Martini time...nice TUX old boy. ZZZZZzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzZZZZZzzzzZZZZzzzZZZZzzzzZZZZzzzZzz....Machine gun sounds and a helicopter somewhere in the distance....ZZ....ZZZZZ....zzzzzzzz.z.z.z.z.z.z.zzzzzzz Biggest BOOM of the entire movie shakes my seat *opens one eye to see where the movie is...looks at watch...ZzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZzzzzzZZZZzz Sad music

Roll END Credits.

SO my overall critique of "Skyfall":
Best Bond film I've never seen.

I do need to get back into the gym..

This isn't James Bond. It's just a fairly good action thriller. What is James Bond? Bond is the guy with suave, unbeatable demeanor, you know bond is going to survive and then have his Shaken Martini! This guy drinks Beer!? It's a shame the 007 franchise has became so serious. We're used to seeing Bond in impossible situations and then the punch lines, the famous punch lines.....Hahn...the days of James Bond is gone and 007 Craig are here. As I said its good, but its not a James Bond Film. I can't figure why they changed the format so drastically, the old films always had huge audiences and made plenty of money. I would rather have the action back, who's going to remember complicated acting dialogue over ACTION and Shaken, NOT Stirred. To bad well probably never see a real James Bond film again, as long as the critics put complicated dialogue over action sequences, I mean I thought I was watching a Shakespearian play, not a action packed 007 movie. Writers and publishers, producers and Directors, get your balls back and make these films the way they were intended! Screw bad reviews from people who would rather be watching CATS anyway!

He drinks beer because it's an issue with Heineken and consumerism, not the character of Bond. Heineken bought the rights advertise its beer in the Bond films. I don't like it either, but get used to it.

And again, I'll say that Craig's interpretation of Bond is accurate to Ian Fleming's vision of the character which is evident in the 007 novels.

The whole beer scene defines the character's feelings during that moment. He was KIA (supposedly) and deteriorated to a beer-drinking alcoholic. Do you really think that there'd be any suave martini-drinking on that island that he was on?

I've seen a few Bond films in my 60 years but this one is THE WORST I've ever seen. The theme tune and the view of the casino as Bond arrives are the ONLY good things worth mentioning. Even the acting of most of the key roles wasn't the best I've seen them do but I don't suppose the lame script helped in that regard. The whole premise/plot was pathetic and bland to say the least, with some absolutely terrible parts thrown in to put it beyond doubt. Why the hell ANYONE found this to be a good film is beyond me and I can only assume, that those who have made positive posts here (which mislead me to waste my time and money watching it), haven't seen the previous GOOD Bond films to compare it to.

If you've seen the GOOD Bond films and you're expecting some of the same in this one PLEASE BE ADVISED that it is NOTHING LIKE any previous Bond film I've seen and I strongly advise you NOT to waste your time and money going to watch it.

@Tj

You are everything wrong with moviegoers. You claim to be the shining beacon of light among a generation of Michael Bay enthusiasts when you're actually worse - at least they are generally too stupid to voice an opinion and actually just enjoy themselves.

You're the quintessential movie-snob. Every film has to have a profound purpose, a genre-defining message, anything to populate your mind with opinion and philosophy as you clearly totally devoid of it yourself. You can only enjoy one kind of film, to the point I was able to predict three of your list of the "besterest films I ever saw" before I even read it (though did get a chuckle at the honorable mention of Moneyball - which while entertaining, doesn't scratch the top 25 of anyone who knows what they're talking about). Movies can be champions of various aspects of film-making, and while Skyfall is not at that level, it is easily in the top 5 or 6 Bond films.

Every film doesn't have to be a Shawshank (also my fave film) to be enjoyable or even good. So please drop the condescension - you are not nearly as intelligent as you believe yourself to be and your opinion on film is entirely pedestrian.

Nov 18 - 03:33 AM

Brian Padgett

Brian Padgett

You shouldnt generalize. I saw Battleship and enjoyed it because its a no-brains action movie. I enjoyed Shawshank redemption because of its character and plot driven story. I hated Skyfall because it saw light on mindless action but the plot that should have taken its place was poorly constructed, making little sense. Not all of us expect to go back to classic bond with gadgets and cars. But a bad movie is a bad movie. I pose this question, if the main character wasn't James Bond, would you have thought it was a good film?

Yeah this movie was pretty lame. No hot bond girls, way too long and boring, Silva the best bond villain ever? Yeah right... cyber terrorist, how lame can you get? I actually fell asleep during the movie and kept checking my watch to see how much longer I had to sit there. And that retarded ending with his stupid gatekeeper. Now if that secret tunnel in his house had gone to Hogwarts and harry potter and gang had showed up, the movie might have been saved. But no. How disappointing to find out the meaning of the title... it was like meh, who cares?

Your review reads like a review of any of the Brosnan Bond movies besides Goldeneye. You know what to expect when you see a move with a main character named "James Bond", but for some reason you chose to watch this and zzzzzzZZZZZZZzzZzZZZZ have some sort of opinion.
Bardem was the only compelling Bond villain since I first saw Bond movies in theaters (I'm 30). The opening sequence was exciting without being gratuitous. [SPOILERS] While my girl and I both figured the new M and Moneypenny things out early, that was fun instead of tedious [End SPOILER]. My biggest criticism is that the movie lacked the camp nature of older Bond films, but after 22 James Bond movies (and three Austin Powers) it's hard to inject camp without coming off as parody. And as "Skyfall" and "Casino Royale" proved, Bond without camp is still damn entertaining.
I loved Goldeneye, and walked out of one of the next three Bond movies (seriously, I don't remember and am not sure if I saw all three of them). Mr. Swafford, if you liked "The World Is Not Enough", "Tomorrow Never Dies", or "Die Another Day" more than "Skyfall", you wasted readers' time by writing this. If you liked "Skyfall" more than those movies and still bothered writing this, you wasted you own time.
Overall, I found your review banal, ZZZZZzzzzzZzzZZZzzz, over-opinionated, zzzzzzzzZZZZZzzzzz, and tedious.

Very true. This guys shown you up totally. I didn't think it was the best Bond ever, in fact I enjoyed Casino Royale more personally, but it was still a pretty damn good film in it's own right.

But yeah, even forced you into a corner enough to force the "yeah but you replied so I win" comment that is the intellectual equivalent of falling on ones sword.

Nov 18 - 03:14 AM

Richard Dobson

Richard Dobson

I liked 'Tomorrow Never Dies' better than 'Skyfall'. Sure, the villain in SF is more sinister, and the Rupert Murdoch guy was a joke (I actually follow Rupey on twitter, I like him), but the scope of 'Tomorrow Never Dies' was so much grander and more interesting. The Opening Scene is one of my favourites, where he steals the plane and ejects the co-pilot into the co-pilot seat of the other plane dog-fighting him.. hehe so cool.
And Michelle Yeoh was SUCH an awesome Bond Girl. She kicked ASS (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon is my all time favourite film).
The international aspect of TND was really cool, Bond trying to avert a Global War with a Super Power nation, There was involvement with the Navy, I just though TND was quite good, and certainly much better than this garbage 'Skyfall'.
On my all time Bond movie rankings list, Tomorrow Never Dies is ranked 12th highest, whilst Skyfall is ranked 16th.

Just mentioning Kardashian in your reply shows that you lack the imaginative judgement to see what the movie really is. I went in the theater expecting Bond, not a sh*t load of gadgets and clich├ęd 1 liners every 5 mins. And yes the movie had depth!!! You knew where Bond came from and why he is who he is!!! Same with "M", well on the job side of her life. You clearly have a narrow minded view on what you are actually watching...

Really...some dirty, empty old castle out in the middle of EFF ME, UK 90210 gave you "depth and understanding" of Jimmy B's humble beginnings?

Wow. If you think a short monologue concerning JB's parents, an action scene involving the destruction of JB's parents mansion, and a quick image of JB's parents gravestone is "character depth" then you probably shouldn't be on a movie-based website pretending to be a critic. Do yourself a favor and read a drama book. You sound like an ignorant retard dude.

You two have been going around the forum and bashing everyone who didn't have the same opinion as you, REAL MATURE!! You may dislike the movie, doesn't make it a bad movie.
I loved the old Bond movies as much as any other person, but being redundant has its consequences. Just because there's less gadgets and Bond girls scenes still makes it a good Bond film for the direction the movie was going for. I enjoyed it for what it was and not for being repetitive like the ones they made from the 80s and 90s.

Honorable mentions :

Still, my taste in movies differ from the next person, but they're my choices. Agree with me or not...

My Top 5

4. Blade Runner
5. Shindler's List.

Honorable mentions: Wit with (Emma Thompson), Phenomenon, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Jaws, MoneyBall, Brokeback Mountain...to name a few on my list... So we at least have to agree that we're expecting something differently when we pick up our respective tickets...and that's ok. Still won't change the fact this Bond movie has TOO many glaring story, production, casting and editing problems to make it a decent "Bond film in my eyes...(when they were actually open enough to SEE them)

Nov 12 - 09:36 PM

Jon Martin

Jon Martin

@Tj Exactly!! I knew before I went it that Skyfall wouldn't be like Brosnan's or Connery's Bond films, they had their own style, which is ok. I went in hoping to see something similar to Casino Royale, which parts of it was, but they changed it so it would not be repetitive, which is ok as well.

Nov 12 - 10:16 PM

Dyson Lu

Well put Adam. I think I get it now: Skyfall really managed to trick the average, not so difficult to please, viewers into thinking the story was great and "deep". But it falls flat for people like us who are more discerning.

Nov 21 - 03:07 PM

Jon Martin

Jon Martin

@Dyson If you want deep, go read a book, this movie had movie depth than the last two batman movies COMBINED!!! If you did not like the movie, you have the right to, but to be a prejudice on the account that other people don't have the same opinion that you have

Nov 22 - 08:25 PM

Andrew M.

Andrew M

Dude, Skyfall had zero parts like casino royale. If casting the same people is the "parts" your talking about then just stop. Casino Royale maintained a relevant plot throughout the entire movie. In Skyfall they are going after a NOC list for the first half of them movie and then they just throw that all away and make it about revenge. They didn't even recover the NOC list!!! The bad guy cant even maintain the same character throughout the film. He goes from a calm, intelligent, murdering mastermind to wanting pity revenge (which already contradicts intelligence) to a totally deranged person with 'mommy-issues' thats wants to commit suicide!??? This movie has so many crappy plot holes it almost could be a comedy. Do you remember the scene where bond is standing there looking at Scotland in the distance while 'M' was sitting in the car? It look like he was taking a piss! And ultimately thats what this movie is doing.... just standing there pissing in the wind.

Nov 13 - 06:35 AM

If that's what you saw, that's your problem... a lot of people saw something different. So that's our incentive on the movie.

Then you must have really low standards? The only thing remotely engaging was the typical bond music montage. The rest appeared to have been filmed off of a Bond checklist.

This movie was narcolepsy-inducing to the well read.

Nov 11 - 08:59 PM

Dave Mart

It had excellent performances (and I mean those of Craig and Dench), a story that prefers cleverness and humanity over hot girls and big explosions (see the film's title), and a good resolution. It's not a perfect film, it's unevenly paced, sometimes silly, and extremely fake. I respect your opinion, but I disagree almost entirely.

My take on the glaring problems of this movie - Outlined:
Yes, no possible way the movie was mediocre.

1.shit Q
2. pop-psychology villain
3. no girl worth remembering
4. CG lizards...I mean really? Lucas probably spotted his shorts when he saw that?
5. what is with the island? no context (20 seconds of dialogue when you're already on the island is not enough). It's just a random set piece without any felt connection
6. no context for the assassin, the assassination, the kidnapped girl
7. computer "hacking" is not interesting
8. locales shifted too fast and were not interesting - audience was not given a chance to mentally "live" in them
9. cheap gadgets (radio looked like a chinese plastic toy, gun has 3 giant LEDs - how subtle)
10. most of the scenes with bardem were just cheesy (looking at you court-room shootout, interrogation while at MI6, shootout at skyfall mansion, etc)

This film had so many glaring problems.

Most people are just bored to tears and looking for anything to fill up the empty voids in their real lives...and this film was a cheap, temporary substitute for it. Einstein was correct in saying that technology is going to make people less than they COULD be. Still though it doesn't take away from the glaring fact that this movie was really bad.

Nov 12 - 02:19 PM

Burning Refuse

Burning Refuse

Tj contradicted himself there with the Einstein quote. He complains that the gadjets are cheap, and then agrees 'that technology is going to make people less than they COULD be.' So then isn't it a good thing Bond didn't use technologically advanced devices and weapons, or it would have made him less than he COULD be?

And to Tj Swafford: No. Most people aren't that bored to tears these days to have to pay tickets for a film they won't enjoy. They have the internet, sports, video games, sex, etc. If it was truly that bad, it wouldn't have a 91% approval rating from the users on this site either.

You are just part of the minority here. Deal with it.

And? I bet you own a "Kony2012" bracelet, don't you? This Bond film was one of the most disjointed, horribly written messes I have ever seen from the Bond genre. It had the emotional impact of an unplugged toaster. This kinda reminds me of all the people who were blogging about how amazing "Redtails" was...and that movie was equally dreadful in my opinion.

Nov 12 - 09:19 PM

Burning Refuse

Burning Refuse

I don't own a Kony2012 bracelet, and even if I did I don't see what that would have anything to do with your view on this film.

You have pretty much made it clear on this forum how much this film deeply offends you, to the point where you must continuously bash it. My point was simply that you are in the 9% of the users here that disapprove. You hate this Bond, and that is good for you, but I hardly see why you would have to be proud of hating it.

That, and that you contradicted yourself earlier.
