Can't even sum up how much I loved this. Best directed Bond ever. Best shot Bond ever. Best acted Bond ever. The most cohesive story in a Bond ever. And so many little things in there for fans of the series. Was geeking out the whole movie.

Also, I thought it was awesome how many dads were there with their sons to see this tonight when I went. I was chatting in line with a three-generation family of guys who were all Bond fans. Love the power of movies for that shit.

Anyone else catch the parallels with The Dark Knight Rises? Purely coincidence, but they were there.

Yeah the little bit about the shadows. There was another thing said, but I forget it.


Saw this again tonight and just really love it. Was able to focus on how it was shot a bit more and I just absolutely love it. A lot of close up shots and honestly the final scenes at sky fall with the fire and shadows were absolutely amazing .

I definitely saw them, both The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. Really enjoyed this movie. Both visually stunning and great pacing. I've never really been into the Bond films before but I definitely want to see them now

Did not care for the Home Alone showdown.

Casino Royale still takes the cake from this run.

Thoroughly enjoyed by me. I was a little disappointed by the lack of a complete Bond girl, but whatever. Javier's performance makes up for it.

Loved this, so much. Instantly one of my favorites, and I'm sure it'll get even better with repeated viewings. Bardem stole every scene he was in, despite everyone else being pretty great, which makes it all the more impressive. Unfortunate that he didn't have more screen time.

Not just that. It's about a Bond who is questionably too old to do the job, and has to rebuild himself after injury to continue on. Bardem's character talks about how they both come from the shadows, but there is also the line "there is a storm coming" which is one of the more recognizable TDKR quotes. One of the very last shots, presumably right after M's funeral, Bond is standing on a rooftop mourning, in all black, with a long peacoat jacket that damn near looks like a cape.

That was the other line I forgot but was referring to. The other stuff as well. Definitely did notice all that. Definitely done unintentionally, though. Still pretty cool.

Even with how much we usually disagree on movie, I am positive you will like this. Haha.

I think I loved nearly every aspect of this movie. Roger Deakins knocked it out of the park, in particular.

I work at a single screen theater just showing this. Excited to put in nearly all pre-sold out shows today. Also hoping for a few people in tuxes.
