"SKYFALL" MOVIE REVIEW

No Comments

On Saturday I finally went to see “Skyfall“, and after all the hype I’d seen all over the web and had heard from friends, my expectations were extremely high.

For me, the film didn’t fail to impress. I hate to follow the crowd in my opinions, but I enjoyed it. For 143 minutes I was transported to a world where driving a motorcycle along the roof of the Grand Bazaar is far from unexpected, and all women are a minimum of 5’10’’ and extremely beautiful (excluding the extraordinary Dame Judy Dench of course).

But isn’t this the joy of movies, isn’t that what we expect when we get comfy in our big squishy seats, with our popcorn and soft drink of choice – to be transported to another world, where the impossible becomes possible? I say ‘boo you’ to critics who deemed the latest addition to the 007 series a ‘cliché, too far flung or just another generic spy thriller’.

My recent work at IAFT also adds another layer to my ‘movie-going experience’, I now see how much work goes into planning, directing, shooting, producing and editing even just a few minutes of film and thus have newly developed a huge amount of respect for anyone who undertakes such a mammoth task as a Bond film.

I say, bravo.
