OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved the movie, and you've got to see it on IMAX! It's the best! Just go see it! It's not for small kids & tweens, but it was great!

The film, "Skyfall", of course, was brilliant. The IMAX experience, not so much. What is IMAX, but a gigantic screen where they have shoved the audience right up against it. I can not see picture from the front, and they shouldn't even be allowed to sell tickets that close. My experience was horrible. I left with a headache and a bad mood. I want the $60-something I spent, to show my friends a good time, back. I'll wait and catch it again at the crappy $1 movies theatre, and sneak in some good wine.

Worth every nickel. IMAX – worth the additional cost.
The opening credits were really unique and I really liked them. Action scenes were wicked - made me squirm in my seat. Characters were excellent and well developed – villains and heroes. Even the story - the plot - was good; probably the best story of the series. I can’t wait for the next story to arrive.
There was a preview for Hansel and Gretel that was very gory - not for little kids (or really anyone for that matter). There were a couple of curse-words (f-bomb makes its first series appearance), but nothing gratuitous. At nearly 2:30:00, it is on the edge of long – so if you’re a frequent visitor to the restroom, you may want to skip the large soda or water.
I may go see it again - after Lincoln, of course.

As with Connery's "Goldfinger," and Moore's "The Spy Who Loved Me," Daniel Craig smashes one in a very big and British way in Skyfall! The producers, Eon Productions, who are celebrating 50 years of giving us England's arguably "greatest contribution to Western civilization besides afternoon tea" (Hugo Drax in "Moonraker"), have stated that this film does not carry on the Quantum storyline from the previous 2 films, and, just as "Goldfinger" and "Spy" also did, accomplished its mission with ripping success. The film is a winner on many fronts: enough traditional Bond tie-ins to keep baby boomer like me happy, enough action to keep the Ciemark goers from boredom, but most importantly, the film is so well acted by a brilliantly casted team . Great writing, action, and realistic effects make for a very entertaining outing.
Oh, and there is that Aston Martin DB5, this time of correct RHD specification (I was one of those malcontents with the LHD car in "Casino Royale." GO SEE!

The Bond movie Skyfall is a well directed update to the franchise, with well chosen bits of nostalgia. Javier Bardem is sensational in this one. Sam Mendes brings a new and fresh perspective to the whole action genre with a lot of brainpower.
Not to be missed!
