Late: Holy crap Skyfall sucks!

I thought this was supposed to be the best Bond movie ever? That plot was SO incredibly dumb that it boggles the mind. Also, old Scottish dude in a Bond movie celebrating its anniversary? How was Connery NOT cast for that?

It had its moments. Wrapping up as Home Alone with James Bond was pretty lame, but it had some good parts. Then again, Quantum of Solace had some good parts too, so...I'm not sure if that's a superlative or not. I need to watch it again to see if it holds up.

I like Craig's Bond though, so I'm not too upset with average overall films. Can't all be Casino Royale.

I haven't seen it since I saw it in the theater. I remember liking it enough, but I didn't think it was "Best Bond Movie Ever" material by any stretch. Honestly, the only Craig movie I really enjoyed was Casino Royale. I'm more partial to the Brosnan/Connery movies myself.

The villain's plan was straight up nonsensical and relied on so many factors that are literally unforeseeable that it frustrated the hell out of me. And how does the head of a spy agency NOT know that if you use a flashlight at night, it gives away your location? C'mon now! And let's not even go into the complete bullshit about how technology is bad and everyone who uses it is stupid. JAMES FREAKING BOND WAS THE KING OF TECH. How are we now rebooting him into grizzled old analog man?
