Skyfall ★★★½

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿1st Viewing🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

I feel like I’d appreciate and love this more if I was a long-standing Bond fan, but nonetheless this was a pretty fucking incredible movie. Everybody nails their part. Even with only seeing Craig as Bond three times and not seeing any other version of the character, I do feel myself getting attached to his portrayal. Also as somebody whos only seen Bardem in Pirates this was a pretty incredible introduction to his brilliance shining. Can’t wait to see more. Loved a lot of the supporting cast. 

The action and effects are magical. The cinematography capturing that magic was wonderful. The score by Thomas Newman was honestly one of my favorite scores I’ve heard all year. I noticed and appreciated it so many times throughout and was jamming out. The original theme played multiple times made me smile. I definitely need to listen to that baby alone.

I really really liked this film. I’m dreading Spectre right now to finally catch up before No Time To Die, but I’m grateful I’ve at least enjoyed every single one of Craig’s Bond films so far.
