Skyfall

Skyfall(2012)

a little bit too dark-knighty to offset the signature fun silliness of bond films (an anonymous-like takeover of the info system, bardem wanting to get captured etc) for me. but it's beautifully shot on any standard and did a really great job of heightening the stakes. from when bardem shows up onward it gets to like 4+ territory, not necessarily because of him but the movie just really ramps up the pace and decides not to be slow anymore (although the major macau and shanghai setpieces are amazing).
