Saw it this afternoon as well. Goofy, was that you muttering angrily behind me? <g>

Well, I certainly didn't think it was "awful", as Goofy did. But it certainly didn't live up to the hype. Still thought it was a very decent movie....maybe 3 to 3.25 out of 4 stars? There were alot of scenes that had great potential, set up nicely, but just didn't quite have the execution needed. Some of the action scenes were over the top...and decisions made by Bond and villains that stretched creduality. What about the typical Bond-movie charm of scenes in the exotic locales (Turkey and China - Shanghai and Macau)...had their moments, but wasn't blown away. And one of the more beautiful Bond girls in awhile, an Eurasian mix. More potential in that side storyline that could have been tapped. We also meet some new characters that may serve as the new paradigms going forward....

For the three very hyped movies this year, I liked Skyfall better than Looper, but nowhere as much as I liked Argo. Argo is still by far the film of the year for me, of the ones I watched.
