Skyfall


A few drops of rain fell yesterday afternoon, so we headed to The Grand Theater at Pier Park to see the latest James Bond movie SKYFALL.


When Daniel Craig first signed on for the roll I couldn't accept him as Bond. Well, third time round he not only fills his predecessors shoes, but does it with pinache. He IS Bond! 

Skyfall (IMHO) is a return to what Bond moviegoers have come to expect from the series. The opening sequence is a white knuckle roller coaster ride from start to finish, and what they do with a train and excavator has to be seen to be appreciated. Who thinks this stuff up?!


The Skyfall theme by Adele reminds me of Shirley Bassey who sang Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, and Moonraker. Have a listen...


I'm kind of hoping for another rainy day...I wanna see Skyfall again! :)

  1. Looks like a great movie to see on a rainy afternoon!! We're in Boston right now - Jim's at his conference - and I'm sitting in the lobby waiting to get into our room. We shall go on a hunt for some Boston Cream Pie later today. Boy I could sure use one right now :).

    1. Enjoy Boston, Rosella! Check out the Parker Hotel Restaurant. It's where Boston Cream Pie was invented. :) http://tinyurl.com/a9cewt3
