    Wondering what Bond fans thought of Skyfall. I thought it was one of the best in a long time, and very enjoyable. Loved the increased role of M.

    Not really into the new Q however.

    This was everything a Bond movie was and should be. WAY different at times.

    And I was wondering what they meant when reviewers said the new villain was 'creepy'. I'm not going to give it away, but they were RIGHT....

    I certainly felt like I got my money's worth.

    Liked the movie but for the most part it didn't feel like a Bond film to me.

    While not all rebooting is evil -- Battlestar Galactica was far more enjoyable and critically acclaimed than its progenitor -- I regret the trend of "rebooting" iconic characters, just to pump some additional millions of dollars into a franchise.

    In some ways, the Bond series was an early adopter of the reboot.

    How do you mean? Yes, the screen writers took license with the novels -- all with Ian Fleming's approoval -- but the character remained the same, regardless of the actor who played him.
