    Who's going to see Skyfall 007?

    Skyfall opens tonight. Anyone planning on seeing it (either tonight or at some point)?

    Hubby and I plan on seeing it in the next few days. Daniel Craig as Bond is on my list.

    I plan to see it in the theater. Not on opening night but before Xmas at any rate.

    I plan on seeing it in the theatre as well, just as I have with every Bond film since License to Kill (I love the Bond franchise). I will not be making it there tonight though. If I can get away for a bit on Monday, I may take myself for a Veterans Day treat otherwise I am going to a conference next Thursday and Friday and have a big break between the last session on Thursday afternoon and the evening dinner so I might try to go then if it is playing at a convenient time.

    I haven't watched most of the older Bond films in a long time and last night brought up the idea of watching them all in chronological order with my wife. I was surprised that she actually was pretty receptive to the idea.

    I used to be really into the Bond franchise but my interest went away towards the end of the Remington Steele era.

    Long before there was 50 Shades there was Sean Connery and Roger Moore. Just sayin'

    I plan on seeing it before X-mas. Casino Royale was awesome and this one looks even better.

    I would very much like to see it. I doubt I will though. I am sure I will when it is available on DirecTV.

    Agreed. Will definitely be seeing it at some point!




    Edit: I apparently messed up the quote... guess thinking about Daniel Craig made me all flustered...

    Hope to see it soon. Bond, Bourne, and Star Trek are movies we will see in the theater.

    Otherwise, we typically wait for Netflix.

    I have two friends in Europe who saw it already and loved it. One's wife, however, is a Sean Connery fan therefore does not like Daniel Craig.

    I was not a Bond fan until Daniel Craig.

    Hubby and have I talked about going to see Skyfall (great theme song by Adele, by the way)... the question is when. Our schedules conflict.

    Saw it Saturday afternoon...brilliant...quite possibly the best Bond film ever. [Disclaimer - I have not seen every single Bond film...but the ones I haven't seen were a couple of the Moore flicks]

    It's common knowledge (or, at least it's been mentioned in reviews of the film) that there are several nods to franchise's past in Skyfall, which is true. There was a Bond fangirl sitting three seats over from Mrs. Bubba...when one of the nods to the past was revealed during the last third of the movie, as Mrs. Bubba put it, it sounded like fangirl worked herself up to her special happy place...

    I haven't seen a Bond movie in the theater since Golden Eye, I'll wait till it's on FX or maybe when I'm on a business trip and it's on HBO.

    I will see it at some point. I hear it is an awesome movie.
    Invest in the things today, that provide the returns tomorrow.

    I saw this movie over the weekend. I enjoyed it but I didn't feel it was as good as Casino Royale. However I came out questioning how long they can go with this incarnation of Bond. It had nothing to do with Daniel Craig but everything to do with how his character was written.

    We saw it today. I loved it - the less-gimmicky, nod to the past, less-is-more style suits the reboot that started with Casino Royale. Daniel Craig's Bond is closer to Fleming's vision than Roger Moore or Pierce Brosnan were (I loved PB as Remington, but he wasn't the right Bond).

    I will purchase the DVD when it comes out.

    I liked it but not as much as Casino Royale. Definately better than Quantum but not in my Top 5 Bonds.

    I'd like to see it with my other half, but I need a baby sitter. RT won't watch her for 3 hours.

    We saw it last weekend. I thought it was pretty good and agree that it was better than Quantum but not as good as Casino Royale. I gave it a B+ and Hubby gave it a n A-.

    agreed - but I did like it - Craig is the best Bond and I liked Brosnan

    Not a Sean Connery fan only becasue he's such an a$$hole in real life...
