Skyfall is one of the best Bonds and part of the reason is that not only does Daniel Craig’s Bond continue to reveal new sides to his personality and resources; not only is he given one of the best Bond villains ever in Javier Bardem’s Raoul Silva, but Judi Dench just kills it as M – giving her every bit of the toughness and resiliency that we always expected of her, and an equally unexpected tenderness that we might not have.

The film holds up well on DVD, even on the small screen it’s a terrific experience, but there are barely fifteen minutes of features – most dealing with technical stuff but not in a superficial way.

Skyfall Movie Review

Where to begin, where to begin?  After being in limbo and bankruptcy heck for the last several years there was actually a chance that we would never have another Bond film. Many would say this would have been a tragedy because Daniel Craig was just starting to grow into the role. He had a lauded outing in Casino Royale but a dud in the follow-up Quantum of Solace.

This exchange from the trailer sums up the new Bond quite admirably:

Bond: Everyone needs a hobby.

Silva: What’s yours?

Dragon Tattoo

When I reviewed David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo for its theatrical release, I noted that it surprised me because it was as good as the earlier, Swedish version that made Noomi Rapace familiar to an international audience.
