I saw Prometheus through Netflix and I can absolutely see why it gets such divided reactions.  There were some really stupid moments.  If you're willing to tolerate those then you could probably enjoy other elements.

Caught Skyfall last night. Was kind of disappointed. :-\

I was going to see that on Friday, but had to bail.  Not good at all?  What didn't you like?  I have yet to see the new Bond in action.

I'm apparently in the minority, but I was hoping for a continuation of Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace... but what I got was basically a 2.5 hour excuse to introduce a new Moneypenny and SPOILER Judy Dench.

Bardem was disappointing too. He did a great acting job but I was expecting Chigurh part 2, and he ended up just being a prissy pants that wanted to play with Bond's crotch.

I recommend seeing it, and you'll probably like it since I'm the only person on earth who was let down.

I really liked Skyfall. Take it for what it is, a fun movie.

Saw SKYFALL this afternoon. It was okay. Entertaining. The action was good, the plot...less so.  Better than Quantum of Solace, which was almost all chase scenes.

Bardem seemed to be channelling the late Raul Julia at times, coming off as a tad campy. His character was too much like Michael Bean's from Goldeneye. It's like the well of villainry has run dry in the P.C. world.  There's so few acceptable baddie types left and their schemes have to be more grounded nowdays. On the other hand, at least there was no satellite weapon.

The films makes Bond seem old and tired, I guess to make him more vunerable.  Craig is in better shape that I've ever been in, but damn he does look old and tired at times. Not that I want him to quit, he's got at least 2 more films in him (both contractually and physically).

Anyway, I wasn't disappointed in SKYFALL, but I wasn't expecting much.

Pretty cool looking. I like the Tom Cruise Oblivion trailer as well, though I'm getting really sick of Morgan Freeman in every thing. Next thing you know he'll be in Episode VII.

Hey now, don't disrespect Morgan Freeman.  He built the Batmobile for Chrissakes.

What's with all the desroyed future Earths movies?  Saw trailers last night for Oblivion, After Earth, The Host and there might even have been one more.

Don't get me wrong, they all looked kind of interesting, but that seems to be the theme of next year's films.

Ironic, since the world ends next week, not next year...

Didn't you get the memo? The Mantoid invasion with the help of the Negative Annunaki Collective has been postponed a week. Fortunately my son will be out in the desert next weekend with his scout troop having rifle practice. He should be good to go against the aliens or at least zombies.

I believe 12/21 is the "official" end date.   ;)

I for one will be severely pissed about missing all these cool movies if the world really does end next week.  I won't even have a chance to see that silly Hobbit movie before then.
