Wow!

Great movie for "action" fans!

My rating is a 9, the best movie I have seen this year.

Cool. The trailers have been spectacular.

We will see it in a few weeks. I am not

comfortable at all in crowded theaters.

Sweet! The wife and I are going in a couple days to see it and I'm actually looking forward to it. Even the 20 dollars on popcorn, Snow Caps and soda will be worth it, I hope.

Indeed, excellent Bond movie, one of the best, IMO.

We saw it Friday, it was good, maybe 30 minutes too long, I was happy to see Judy Dench killed off, never liked her character, but I fell in love with the new Moneypenny. Daniel Craig may be be the most athletic bond, but lacks the personalty and British wry humor of Connery (a Scot) or even Pierce Bronson (an Irishman). Nobody wrote Bond like Ian Fleming and it was written for Roger Moore who was busy at the time doing the Saint tv show, hence Connery a former bodybulder. Javier Bardem stole the show, he was excellent and for the most all the acting was good.

A little Bond Trivia, in only 1 movie did Bond fall in love and get married, "Her Majesty's Secret Service" with George Lazenby (Australian), his only Bond appearance and thought pretty good too, Telly Savalas and Diana Rigg, one of my Bond favorites.

I think Ive only seen 1 Bond movie and maybe bits and pieces of 1 or 2 more. Id really like to see them all. Maybe buy the boxset if there is one. The new one looks good. Id like to see it in theaters but Ill probably procrastinate and end up waiting til its 'on demand'.

I am not comfortable at all in crowed theaters.

X's 2. I hate having to sit next to people or trying to watch a movie while a bunch of idiot kids are making a ruckus. If I go to the movies, I make it a point to go at like noon on a Monday.

Saw it today at our IMAX theater.

We loved it.

A Blu-ray buy for sure this summer.

Awesome movie, one of my favorite Bond films. It really stands alone for a Bond film. More like a Dark Knight feel as far as story line.

It was good, I didnt catch why his house was called "skyfall", am I missing something?

I don't believe so. Many mansions are (were) named like The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House in Newport R.I.

Something we brought over the pond I guess.

"I was happy to see Judy Dench killed off"

You could have probably gotten your review in without spoiling that part for those of us who haven't seen it yet.

Probably my favorite bond film.

(minor spoiler alerts here!!!) I found it kind've unbelieveable that "M" and the gamekeeper would've been so stupid as wander around in the bog with their flashlight on. Duh! "Hey, come and get me!!!"

How did Silva (also minor spoiler alert!!!) and his men ever find them hiding out at Skyfall? Did I miss something there?

This was explained earlier in the film. To paraphrase, they said they'd leave a trail that nobody but Silva would be able to follow. I don't remember if they provided any examples to the audience.
