You Know My Name


"Skyfall:" There's a lot yet to process. I'm not pursuaded it was the best Bond movie ever, but I'm not ready to declare that it wasn't.

Putting the pieces in play for a manageable "Bond" series going forward felt "right," but that somewhat nettles me, as it sort of felt like, "See? We're fixing it," and I definitely don't think it was "broken."

I'm looking forward to where Bond goes from here... But wistful for what went before. That was inevitable since "Casino Royale" rebooted the Bond Movieverse, but it didn't feel like a closed door until now.

I guess it leaves me sort of melancholy.
