    Saw Skyfall today and I have to say...easily one of the best if not THE best Bond film ever.

    If you liked Craig in Casino Royal you'll LOVE this film.

    Judy Dench did a really good job.

    Bittersweet ending.

    Javier Bardem was a superb Bond Villan. (same guy who played the bad guy in "No Country for Old Men." I'd rate his performance in Skyfall almost as good as Heath Ledger's Joker character in the Batman movie.

    It was the perfect escape from all the election crap/market turmoil/work etc....

    Bond lives and WILL be back...

    Being that Sir Thomas Sean Connery is the best Bond, I don't see how Sky Fall can be the best Bond film. :)

    I thought it was excellent. Saw it earlier today with my parents after meeting up with them for lunch. I really enjoyed it from start to finish. I enjoyed Quantum, which I know a lot of people were not too fond of it. Don't you worry, Skyfall is above and beyond what Quantum was/should've been.

    Daniel Craig is probably the perfect James Bond. I won't say the best, because that honor falls on Connery since he was the first 007. Nobody will ever be better than Sean Connery. But to me Daniel Craig fits the role of James Bond perfectly. The walk. The talk. The swagger. He is 007.

    Javier Bardem's role was awesome. He's a great actor, and doesn't disappoint in this movie. A much better villain than in some of the past films.

    Funny thing, after the film ends my father mentions that he can't believe he's seen 50 years of Bond films. He watched 'Dr. No' for the first time in a theater in downtown Miami. It was the first movie he watched here in the United States after he and my grandparents fled Cuba when Castro took over. That made watching the movie even more enjoyable for me.

    That's just swell. Market falling apart and your advisor is at the movies.

    He's supporting the local economy. Isn't that what we're always encouraged to do?

    I will have to check it out. Casino Royale was good, but I felt it had Crank style action.

    Having predicted the upturn in today's markets I simply decided to let the staff handle it and get some quality family time with the wifey. :tongueout:

    I can't put the smilies from my phone.:supergrin: Some days you need to be Ferris Bueller

    Reminds me of the time several yrs ago I was all bent out of shape about something my advisor did, called his office to rant only to find out he was in RUSSIA on an award trip. We no longer speak when we see each other in social settings.
