That said I certainly enjoyed the movie overall and the baddie is probably my favourite bond villain ever. Most decent villain was the combo of Jansen, Bean and the other bloke in Goldeneye.

QOS is an awful film. Casino Royale is by far Craig's best. Sky fall is in between, beating all Brosnan efforts except possibly Goldeneye and beating many other bond movies too. Still doesn't quite reach Goldfinger or one or two others if you take into consideration the time they were filmed.

I enjoyed it, but feel it could have been much better.

To me, right from Sean Connery's films, Bond has been about the suave spy, the hot women, the cars, and the gadgets - remember Little Nelly?

Daniel Craig is a poor replacement for Pierce Brosnan, who I actually thought made an excellent Bond. Casino Royale and QOS were both light on gadgets but had enough of the other elements to make them enjoyable. Skyfall just seemed to be very tame in every area, and I found the complete lack of gadgets a real disappointment.

Slightly O/T, but WTF is the deal with Sony marketing the Xperia T as the 'Bond phone'? They never bothered with previous phones featured in 007 films, and it's not even as if the phone gets heavily featured in this one. Fecking cheek if you ask me.
