    I'm seeing this movie in less than three hours in IMAX. So pumped.

    I've had an erection for three days now because of this movies eminent release.

    People shouldn't sit in front of me in the theater as to avoid a "Pee Wee Herman incident", fair warning.

    So, Skyfall...

    Is this like a really gritty retelling of Chicken Little?

    Bump.

    Also I saw it about half an hour ago. My impressions (with spoilers hence the spoiler).

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Saw it on Saturday night- I have liked most of the modern films which definitely includes the last three so I am not sure my saying anything means much. That said the computery stuff was not completely stupid (still the occasional groanworthy bit mind you) and I might even go so far as to say this might not make a better TV show*.

    *I have been watching the new transporter TV series which is hilarious and some of the best driving and hand to hand fighting I have seen in years let alone on TV (Tony Jaa stuff, IP man and the raid redemption being the few things that go further than it).

    I agree with the general consensus; Skyfall was great and absolutely worth seeing.

    As for Guild's comment, yeah, 2012 has been an amazing year for cinema. I'm not sure if it's quite up there with 1982 (which saw the release of E.T., The Thing, Wrath of Khan, First Blood, Gandhi, Poltergeist, The Secret of Nimh, Creepshow, Conan, and Tron), but I'd say it's damned close.

    Is my cinema the only one that released this film 3 weeks ago and I watched it 2 weeks ago?
    Damn, were there so many people.

    New transporter series huh, I'm interested but can't find it anywhere. Is it called transporter or is it known by something different. Even googles saying it hasnt aired yet so I'm really confused

    It was just released in the US last Friday, but the UK (and elsewhere, it seems) got the film on October 26th.

    Sorry I had meant to mention it is only out in German dub right now (episode 5 hit the other day I think). Some of the stories are actually not that bad (certainly better than some of the later films) although cheesy as you might expect. Also be prepared to deal with seriously rapid cuts in some sequences (as in making Mr Bay say tone it down a bit).

    Watched this last night finally. I really enjoyed it. I really like the starting motorbike chase even though some people didn't. And I think that the villain was really well portrayed. Kind of creepy but smart and calculating . Daniel Craig was definitely a good choice for bond whoever chose him :)

    Good movie for Bond fans. Average action movie for everyone else.
    The Bourne Trilogy series are considerably better than Skyfall.

    Bourne films are generally a mess when it comes to directing and popularized the unfortunate "quick cut" fighting that really takes out stellar filming and choreography from movies. I understand its purpose (to be confusing and show the fast pace of a fight) but I prefer seeing a well choreographed fight instead of choppy editing.

    Also I found this was more of a Bond movie to appeal to everyone. Much more characterization and a story that isn't some generic "Bond stops evil people trying to make the world go boom." I'd compare it more to the recent Star Trek which had appeal to non-Trekkies but still appealed a lot to Trekkies.

    I'd kinda described it as a mixture of Nolan Batman (in terms of character themes and direction) with a smattering of Goldeneye in there (similar motives and villains).
