Skyfall ★★★★★

Bond movies have a tendency to degrade in quality after their first films with new leads. So the fact that Skyfall is on par or even better that Casino Royale is something to behold. Craig, Dench, and Bardem all turn in amazing performances. The cinematography, by the all time king Roger Deakins, is nothing short of perfection. There are a lot of beautiful shots in here. It was the first time I was ever impressed with the cinematography in a Bond film. They somehow once again create a very engaging portrayal of Bond. This was the most I'd ever been invested in his development as a character. They also develop M more than any previous film and by the time the movie ends, I was also super invested in her. I can't say enough good things about this one. I highly recommend it, even if Bond movies aren't your thing. At least watch the amazing intro.
