all I know is that Adele, who I cannot stand, did the theme song for it, and I'm never going to listen to it

nonetheless, James Bond is an overall badass but I probably won't get a chance to see the movie

You'd think it would be bad, but the theme song was actually pretty good, it captured the sound of bond pretty well, however I would still have liked to see Supremacy by Muse used as the main theme song of the film.

I mean, Muse isn't all that James Bond-y, are they?
Neither is Adele, mind.
It's a good song though, no doubt. Looking forward to the film.

You haven't heard Supremacy yet. Trust me, if you heard it, you'd hear the James Bond in it.

You don't have to be "James Bond-y" to write a fantastic James Bond sounding theme. You don't even have to be British (I'm looking towards Chris Cornell on that one) but it is preferred.

I've heard Supremacy. Not really all that Bond-ish.
Also, a not British person writing a James Bond theme? Shut your mouth!

I don't mind Adele, I mean Adele is one of the actually half decent female artists these days.

Anyway. Loved it. As did my brother, friends, Grandparents and anyone else I knew who watched it.

Your grandparents are awesome. If mine saw this movie, they'd probably leave within the first scene.


Not that they aren't awesome theirselves, they just don't like this type of movie. :P

Last week, when we went to see Wreck-It Ralph, the showing wasn't for another half hour, so we sat in and watched a little bit of Skyfall. Let me tell you, it kicked serious ass. I watched the movie from when they were practicing shooting with the glass of liquid on the woman's head to the end of the chase scene where Bond is chasing Raoul all over the place after he escaped his cell and disguised as a policeman.

A little past that, I believe. I believe I got a little past the part where Raoul starts shooting people in the courtroom.

Ah, yes, that part was epic. I love the way Bond tricks Silva.

Adele has a powerful voice, so I'm a bit disappointed that the song wasn't stronger.  It wasn't bad, though, and I had it caught in my head for a few days after watching it.
