I saw the new Bond film Skyfall last night! Here are some reaction comics I made before bed.  As always, SPOILERS!


*Whoops, that's "Silva"...ha ha....British accents, you know...!
^My mom and I made this joke almost simultaneously.

So okay, it's fun to poke holes in movies, but in all seriousness I really enjoyed Skyfall and will be recommending it to my friends.  It's a good Bond film.  It's a good action film.  The glass door scene?  The opening shot?  The rat monologue?  The rooftop dirt biking?  The new Q?  The use of the backhoe loader?  The word association game?  Every single establishing shot in the film? *whistle*
I was a little underwhelmed by the plot and the not-so-deep reveals about James Bond's past because my friends had built it up a bit too much, but ah well.  He's an orphan.  He hid in a cellar once.  I would have loved more character development than that, but I should have reminded myself that I was going into a James Bond film and they need to save all the time they can for the shoot-outs and explosions.  That final act...don't even get me started.  The ice scene was cool, but I was falling asleep during the rest of the fire BOOM fire shouting BOOM stuff.
