So, I took Jill to the movies. to see Skyfall, the new James Bond flick.
I feel so weird after seeing it. It was a well made movie, yet I somehow missed the James Bond part. Where is the magic of Mr. Bond’s wit and charm? The sexy/flirty element seemed to be an in-congruent ingredient that was sprinkled in lest it be forgotten. Why do I feel like I am watching a Jason Bourne movie?
Good stuff: cinematography, story, interesting bad-guy, action, danger level
Bad stuff: “M” seems (for the most part to be an object carried from place to place. I wish she could have showed off her great mind. Maybe she didn’t have one? The interaction between the agent who first drives Bond around ends up ruining a classic Bond element for the future.
If you don’t go in expecting Bond, you will probably have a good time.
