Skyfall ★★★★★

One of the best Bonds to date. 'Skyfall' has the franchise's best villain (Bardem is the first to embrace a character that truly makes us AND Bond feel uneasy. Much of his performance does not come from the often shallow writing but just the grunts and looks he offers up.) Roger Deakins blows every frame away as this is the most beautiful Bond to date. It has the first exploration of Bond's past (which after 23 movies is necessary). And an absolutely breathtakingly amazing end set piece.

The nostalgia works. The Bond moments work. Even the Heineken worked.

See Skyfall.
