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.
I do, I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.

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.
