Movie Trailers: Skyfall - Trailer

Skyfall - Trailer

Bond meets Q and gets his Walther on.

Watch Video

Well, that looks fucking awesome.

I didn't see John de Lancie ANYwhere in that trailer! >(

I don't know. It looks good, but to me a bond movie is still about an amorral bad-ass hero who out-thinks his enemies while stealing their women and blowing up thier volcano fortress. Daniel Craig isn't bad but I just don't find his movie's nearly as fun to watch...

I will say this. At least they stopped trying to be Jason Bourne. This one might actually feel like a Bond movie.

Might have to see this one.

Q is in this movie !?!?!?

Faints* image

Ok looks amazing, will see

But really.. at 2.20,did anyone else think "The Bad guys are OnLive and they have their own helicopter?"

No, they didn't. Do you remember how the last Bourne movie ended? All the time I was watching this trailer I thought: "oh, look, 007 has Bourne envy." It got worse, if anything.

In my opinion, even though the Bourne movies are far better than the Bond movies, the latter does not benefit from imitating its more successful rival. Bond should keep his own style.

Movie looks badass. Also while I'm sure he'll make an excellent Bond villain why the hell does Javier Bardem have blonde hair?

This explains the Olympics opening ceremony...

I may see this one in theaters.

Could not be less enthused if I tried.

I literally forgot to breathe at the end there. I don't really enjoy Craig's Bond, I can't remember a single thing from Quantum, but this does indeed look interesting. Here's hoping.

Naomie Harris! Yay!

Disappointed to not see the Queen in this one though.

"whats your hobby then?" "resurrection" that is a yipee ki ya worthy line

Javier Bardeem as a bad guy? Yes please!

Oh, right, The Bourne movies were the first films in history to feature a shot of a character underwater shot from a skewed angle. Damn that Bond for mimicking them so!

Well that was fun, now here's hoping they actually hired a director this time instead of the ADHD division of the British Society of Film Editors. I absolutely love the James Bond movies, and nothing ticks me off more than the couple where they forgot they were making a Bond movie and not a forgetable contemporary action movie that just happened to have bond in it (Die Another Day, Quantum of Solace).

So the critics are all in awe and reverence for this movie, they're calling it THE BEST BOND MOVIE EVER.

Me? Wonderful movie indeed! One of the best Bond movies for sure, but still it's most definitely not THE best. Obviously that's a subjective matter, it just struck me that the criticism I read (not MovieBob's, because you know, as far as I know he still hasn't given his position here) acted a single entity to point matter-of-fact that this movie was the best of them all. And it's not not, it's very good, but not the best.

Daniel Craig's movies, in my opinion, brought 007 to back to life. It reminds me of Doctor No, with Sean Connery playing that barbaric James Bond (who had, despite all his brutality, a lot of "Bond charm"), and not that many gadgets around, Craig's movies lack, however, those crazy out-of-this-world villains, which were pretty cool (until Pierce Brosnan's series went a "bit too far" even for Bond standards). That said it really itched me that part of the critics would point out that Craig's performance was "brilliant, granting the public with the most humanized James Bond we've ever seen".

Sorry but... WHAT THE FUCK GUYS??? Didn't they watch Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace? The whole deal with his lover, him going nuts in a most unprofessional killing spree, the evident conflict when

Quantum of Solace was jaw dropping for most of the time: the music was great, the scenes, that shooting scene with the opera taking over all sound was simply beautiful. In my opinion that was the movie that should have received all the praises. Skyfall brings another kind of show: it's all about bringing back old figures (such as Q) and hinting at/setting up for events from the old "Sean Connery and thus forth" movies, specially as the movie reaches it's conclusions (those who've seen the movie know what I'm talking about).

All in all my feeling was: those critics probably didn't do their homework, they remember at best, the worst of the worst in 007, that is Pierce Brosnan's run (excluding Goldeneye, which was pretty good), and maybe a few of those classic great-but-cheesy Roger More moments that are always on TV such as Moonraker; but they don't seem to know the bulk of the series, which is the glamour of the Sean Connery era and even Roger Moore's, excusing one movie or another. I dunno, critics seem not to even care about what they're talking about lately, it's like they're doing it to be "cool", do your homework people, you don't know squat about 007? Seeing 5 movies won't cut it for a series of about 25 films, go review something else, or simply judge it for the movies' merits and defects, don't compare it to the rest of the series if you don't know the series...
