I didn't even realize it until Cary mentioned it.

On another note, silly confession time.

Just saw the flick, loved it, taught, focused. And an earthy low-tech finale that I did not expect.
Compare that to the finale of the cartoony "Die Another Day", what a contrast.

Only thing I thought was weird....

Skyfall opening title sequence (without the actual titles) 

After seeing this again, I like it better. Don't know what bothered me when I was at the theatre but I don't see it anymore.

I love" Highlander", must have seen it 50 times Lyanna. Also loved Gibsons "Braveheart", though I wish Mel had stayed behind the camera, and cast someone with more carisma as Wallace.

Ok, I am going to be a thorn and say it wasn't my favorite. I like Royale better. It had its moments but honestly, you would think the head of British Intelligence would know when and when not to use a fucking flashlight.

I would like to watch this again a bit more sober and at a more reasonable hour. I did like Javier and the sideshow clownlike aspect of his villian.

 LOL in the flashlight, Rygar! I totally get that. I miss his love interest part of Royale.

 Pfah, as long as we get to see him naked or mostly naked, who cares if he's in love.

 Point taken, Lord Storm.  Craig without his shirt on is enough to cause a serious case of the vapors! biggrin

Ok so here are my thoughts....
Best fucking Bond film ever! I loved the references to previous films, the diving into Bond's backstory and a villain that matched Bond in a way Bane matched Batman! I loved the fact that he actually succeeded in his plan of revenge, but still sad that he didn't get to see it. M's death took me completely by surprise but I love the character Ralph Fiennes played and the fact that he is the new M. Best Bond opening ever, it was so good I now kinda like Skyfall (song). I loved the idea of an older over the hill Bond that still has something to prove and a nostalgic M. The bromance between Bond and Q was also quite spectacular.
Javier Bardem delivers one fine ass performance and he reminded me a lot of Heath Ledger's Joker. You didn't know whether to be horrified by him, or to laugh at him. Many times we did snicker. The audience amused me to no end especially in the scene where Silva tries to seduce Bond. In this conservative culture group of mine, the collective sucking in of breath was incredibly funny to behold. I also loved the face prosthetic thing, brilliantly done. One minute his teeth are missing. Next minute he looks like something from the exorcist.
I hated the Bond girls in this one though! I can forgive Moneypenny simply cause she's Moneypenny and that makes sense. Her sheer incompetence irritated the living crap out of me. Honey you are carrying an Assault Rifle, it has more than one shot! Shoot the fucking bad guy, oh no too late he's gone. The fact that you could almost literally hear her dripping everytime she came close to Bond was grating to say the least. Until the Moneypenny reveal, then it made sense. The other one I didn't really care for and IMO was quite the wooden performance.
Overall loved it best Bond movie. I smell Oscar Nominations!

It was really good, I enjoyed it and loved The Woman in Black. Ciaran Hinds was exceptionally good in that one ;)

"Oh go on then, eject me, see if I care", says M. With that great line I knew M will die, plus you don´t introduce Fiennes if you are not thinking on killing her. Albert Finney, god, use him a bit more! such a tramp, you have to love him.

Yes, Bardem is good, still I don´t like him. Royale is still the best for me, but this one was good... some silly, childish lines I didn´t like tho. It seemed too easy.
