"Skyfall" was very good

I'm really glad I got to see it before it left theatres, which can't be too far in the future. In a sense, it was a cerebral action movie, an unusually bright blockbuster. It was huge, and visually impressive, and really deserved the big screen.

There was one big plot element I knew going in that I wish I hadn't. It felt like waiting for the other shoe to drop, and it's not because someone who'd seen the movie spilled the beans, but because of some advance casting info. Ah well.

There were also a couple of minor reveals at the end of the movie that I felt were telegraphed pretty loudly. Cute ones, though.

Daniel Craig really does make a fine Bond, and his scenes with Judi Dench are spot-on. I even liked the scenes with the new Quartermaster, and I hope we'll get to see more of him.
