    I just saw the trailer. looks interesting (quite exciting!)

    But I have always preferred Jason Bourne to James Bond... Bourne is more realistic, too. A thinking cat's movie.

    Yeah, it was the Bourne franchise that kinda forced Bond's producers to change course.

    Personally, I think Bond is stuck in kind of a limbo right now -- if I want no-nonsense grittiness, Bourne is better. But the things that made the Bond movies so appealing for so long WAS their escapist nature, which is being sacrificed for the more Bourne-like Bond.

    James Bond never had to do gritty hand to hand for longer than 30 seconds , until Jason Bourne showed up.

    All Bond ever had to do was press a few buttons on his watch while sipping his "shaken not stirred", to tranquilize his opponents. Or he could seduce the 'enemy-woman' ... right-ho.

    Jason Bourne drove a battered standard Mini through the streets of France to evade police, while Bond sits in a nice smart-phone controlled BMW... meow meow meow.

    of course it helps that Bond is much more handsome and suave. ahahaha

    Great movie in it's own right but not a great 'Bond' movie.
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    Sean Connery as 007 was best. The rest are temporary pretenders.


    The usual crap. Same old claim whenever new movie is screened.

    Not great because? My dad was an old Sean Connery fan. I was thinking of bringing him to catch Skyfall, but was wondering if it has progressed way beyond what the old Bond feels like.
