As the title suggest DH is keen to go and watch Skyfall this weekend, I just wanted to know if anyone had gotten a chance to see it yet and if so is it any good? We have to drive just over an hour and a half to get to a cinema so I wanted to make sure it is worth it original.gif

I havent seen it yet, as we also need to drive an hour and a bit to a decent cinema to see it but many of my friends have and they loved it! Even the non Bond fans.

Enjoy! I am pestering DH to take a day off so we can go and see it. original.gif

I saw it yesterday and really enjoyed it. Lots of action and Daniel Craig with his shirt off (if you like that sort of thing biggrin.gif )

It's got Daniel Craig in it. What's not to love?

Libster and Lanthe, you both make really good points. Although lets be realistic, Daniel Craig with no shirt means the plot, special effects, and everything else can be crap and it would still rate as a good movie....

My BIL saw it and was raving.... (and we are talking about a man who doesn't enjoy ANYTHING on purpose here!) he said it was fantastic.

I'm taking my Dad on Wednesday.. very excited - I'll have to drive 4 1/2 hours if it makes you feel any better?

I can't wait to see it - reviews I've seen rave that it's the best Bond film ever.

Haha thanks countrymel, that does make me feel a little better. Though now it makes me feel bad for complaining lol.
I have heard a few people say that about the reviews and people liking it though so this seems like it should be good, I'm not a huge going to the cinema person I always hate how much it costs, so it's good to know that it should be worth my money.

We saw it last night!

I really enjoyed it, DH is a big Bond buff and we'd planned to see it today (Friday) as we both aren't working but we walked up to the little suburb where the local cinema is last night for a quick bite and were shocked to see the 8.15pm session wasn't sold out so we decided to go original.gif

Good thing as DH has now been called in to work today & tomorrow sad.gif

It's awesome, but be prepared its very long (over 2.5 hours) !! I didn't get bored however, lots of action, lots of Daniel Craig who is awesome as usual, Javier Bardem makes an awesome baddy and my big fave was Judi Dench this time.

Oh and it seems they have relaxed a bit in this one and there are quite a few subtle "Bond" jokes which we were chuckling at. DH still says Casino Royale was better but it's still worth the money & the drive I reckon.

So we went and saw it yesterday, it was awesome original.gif very glad we saw it at the flicks original.gif  I admit I have to agree with you MrsShine, Javier Bardem was a brilliant bad guy. I think that the realism of the storyline really did add to the movie too.

DH and I saw it last night for his work Christmas breakup.   We are not bond fans but we both enjoyed it.  Story line was good and the villain is excellent.   Don’t drink too much before going in - it is a long movie.  We did play spot the product placement by squeezing hands (there are quite a few of them).  I would see it again if offered.

Went with DH last night and loved it. Will probably try and go with my dad next week when he visits.

Good bond film. Probably more bond crossed with Bourne then the old bond jumping every female (more implied then sex scenes). DH called it the PG Bond.... Except for the violence.

We went to see it yesterday at gold class. It was a great movie. DH is a James bond fan! He wants to see it again.

I'm looking forward to seeing it but I didn't know it was so long. That might put a crimp in my plans with babysitters. maybe on Blu Ray.

dh is a james bond fanatic and went to the midnight screening - LOVED it. we are hopefully going again next weekend original.gif

I found it exceptionally boring...

#21 Feral Grey Mare

Posted 02 December 2012 - 06:56 AM

really enjoyed it even though I'm not totally sold on Daniel Craig as James Bond. The real guide for us is DHs choc top meter. The better the movie, the fewer choc tops he has because he can't tear himself away from the screen to go to the shop. Skyfall was only a one choc top movie and that was the one he bought before it started so that is how good the movie was.

I fell asleep in in, DH had to keep poking me in the ribs.
It was very long.
But i am the first person to admit I'm not a dyed in the wool James Bond fan.
Dh liked it.

It's excellent.

I'm not even a huge Bond fan, though I'll always go and see them. I liked it more than the previous Daniel Craig one.

Just remember, it's still Bond, so suspend all disbelief and cynicism, and roll with it.
