    I saw Skyfall last night. I would have to agree with everyone here. One of the best Bond films I've seen.

    Boy am I going to get in trouble....

    You must have to be a Bond fan to "get" Skyfall. I found it tedious and in parts, downright boring. Just wasn't impressed.

    Then again for me, the best part of any Bond movies has been the music. Adele's "Skyfall" was amazing.

    I found Skyfall to be a little overrated myself. It was probably negatively affected in comparison by the slew of surprisingly strong films to have recently come out of Hollywood (Looper, Argo, Seven Psychopaths)...

    Well, it's like music. Preferences are kind of subjective. I kind of like that the Daniel Craig version isn't overly reliant on all the gadgets like previous Bond movies have been. It just seems more real. I kind of liked it.

    I do agree with you on the theme. Great song.

    Lincoln.

    Amazing. Beyond Amazing. If Day-Lewis and Tommy Lee Jones don't get Oscar nominations for this movie, the nominating committee is blind.

    Agreed. I just got home from seeing it. Sally Field was pretty solid as well.

    I'll be seeing it tomorrow or Monday. Is there a surprise ending?

    I was a small bit surprised at the amount of humor. The trailers I had seen didn't show much of that.

    There was no Daniel Day Lewis in the movie, only Lincoln.

    I could see Day-Lewis not winning just because you expect the guy to be so good. It's happened before.

    Tommy Lee Jones (who is no slouch in his own right) was the pleasant suprise to me. Not knowing who the rest of the field is, I'd still think he is a good pick for supporting actor based on both his performance and the character he plays.

    One thing I particularly liked was that the movie wasn't afraid to be complicated. It gave its audience credit for being intelligent. There were also little details for those who knew the story well, such as Mary's mention of Cold Harbor.

    Ahhh, but take into consideration what else opened on both weekends. Lincoln had to compete with Twilight. I can't remember what Vampire Hunter competed with that week.

    and I saw Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter also. I have to admit I enjoyed it. for what it was it was entertaining. You had to suspend reality and enjoy it for a historical-wanna be action movie.

    It was pretty good other than the fact I couldn't believe he died in the end.
