It took me a while, but I finally saw Skyfall. I became a Bond fan back when I first started reading the books when I was 11, my first being From Russia, With Love. I haven't seen many of the movies after Sean Connery's, but I enjoyed Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. Skyfall takes things to a whole 'nother level. It's the perfect Bond film, with the requisite action, gadgets, and all the little touches, like the return of the Aston-Martin. It was emotional and personal, too, getting to the heart of Bond's relationship with M, and a peek into Bond's past. Javier Bardem made a great villain, Naomie Harris was wonderful as a fellow agent, and Ben Whishaw made a great Q. The opening credits were eye-popping, the title song by Adele was excellent and  very Bondian. And best of all, the concessions counter had Sno-Caps, my favorite movie snack!
