If you havent seen it yet, No Time to Die is the best bond movie I've ever seen. The best fight scenes (especially the way they film them), the best humor, the best charachter arc for Bond, the most beautiful cinematography I've seen in any bond movie, and the best ending. (First bond movie to make me cry).

Even with more recent action movies raising the bar, Skyfall holds up so damn well as a solid action movie. If this came out today, we’d still be equally impressed

@Tenshi Artii Most action films that attempt to have “flash” (ie all of Bay and Snyder films) are generally bad. Skyfall, Fury Road, Baby Driver, Oldboy, Only God Forgives, and John Wick are the rare films that have actual flash with their style. They play more as art films made by directors with complete command of their craft than typical action flicks.

@Insane about film Thank you for this commentary and breakdown of Skyfall.. This is my favourite Bond movie, the Bond movie that first drew me to the 007 world and possibly my favourite film of all time!! I agree with your points, and I will quickly add that I used to live near Macau, and they do have casino's there, and the lighting in Macau and Shanghai was on point.

In my option Skyfall is the best James Bond film. Not the greatest the best. Celebrating 50 years of the iconic franchise with many nice nods and references to all the films. Narratively it’s the most diverse with Judi Dench delivering an endearing performance, with her character being at the centre of the story. Bond goes through many challenges, him seemingly falling to his death only to be reborn and face a threat who has also returned from darkness, makes its a very metaphorical experience. There’s this elusive subtext within the rivalry of Bond against Silva. The character is stripped down to his bare necessities, he loses that “panache” his skills become rusty and his overall competence is questioned throughout. More importantly he has to confront his past and revisiting Skyfall gives the character some much needed depth. I love how Sam Mendes broke the traditional formula of a bond movie and made it a visceral experience. The action is smoothly paced throughout its lengthy running time, never feeling like too much or too little. The script is written with labyrinth effect. The set pieces are highly original, not typically exotic or fancy rather refined and profound. I love how it retains bonds British roots with the majority of the film taking place in the U.K. Bond overlooking the Skyfall landscape with the Aston martini behind him, is one of the most iconic moments in the series period. Finally i adore the emotionally impactful climax where M succumbs to her wound. Bond shedding some tears at her passing whilst also blowing up Skyfall makes it the most compelling climax to a bond film I’ve ever seen. And Javier Bardem was the perfect villain for the story. Not motivated by manipulating state of the art satellites or controlling the worlds oil supply, rather the simplest and best motivation a villain can possess - REVENGE! Yes Skyfall is a thinking man’s bond film. It’s certainly one for the ages.

So, point ot intrest: a lot of people might hear the name "the troubles" and think it doesn't sound that bad. Then you remember that the Irish name for WW2 was "the emergency". The Troubles was absolutely brutal. Even at the exact opposite end of the country people would be legitimately scared about what was happening up there.

@Tristan Lane you'd be wrong there. First, maths does require you to prove literally everything, although once peobes it's always proved. Second, try getting off the cruise ship next time you come to visit. Theres the only place You'll be seeing plastic. Well, there and the travellers, and the English have travellers as well so you can't act high and mighty about that. Oh, and don't say that irish culture has no connection to Irish culture and then act like the English are blameless when the did there utmost to wipe it the fuck out.

@Aaron Mazur The Irish country as it currently is has little to no connection to the culture it pretends to be. Like if us British started painting ourselves with woad again, except some parts actually do still have celtic connections here. Ireland is a whole country of plastic paddies crying about shit "the English" did to them when they're all related to the English that did it anyway, not to mention that they started if we have to claim historical precedent for things. They want to challenge the known facts hence why I asked for sources, I don't have to provide sources in response as easy as it would be. You don't need to source every time you say 1+1=2...

Completely agree. I do find the shower scene earlier tone deaf - bad enough to nearly completely derail the film - but this line is definitely indicative of the journey that Bond is going on, of recognising just how far he had gone and how many lives he'd sacrificed. It's still ugly and arguably needlessly fridging yet again, but the line - and the acting - is still more meaningful than is given credit here

11:10 I never saw this a confirmation of either or them being gay or bi, or even if it it its not the point. Its Silva trying to throw Bond off and put him on the defensive. Bonds response is a clear "yeah that's not gunna work on me", like he sees right through it. Silvas reaction to that is just a witty acknowledgement that it didn't work. I really don't think either characters sexuality has anything to do with it, whatever it is. It's just a back and forth powerplay that was honestly fun as hell to watch

Those Highlands scenes were shot in Glen Etive, which is a beautiful drive just south of Glencoe. It’s a one-track road that doesn’t go to anyplace in particular beyond the loch at the end of the road and the gorgeous scenery. When I was driving there in 2012, there were way too many people in Glencoe, but as soon as we pulled onto the road for Glen Etive, everyone disappeared and it was just us and the beauty.

I love how this movie is very much an anti-Bond movie, really doubling down on the almost sociopathic nature of the character. It doesn't try or want to make an excuse for all the killing, sexism and other bad traits Bond has, it just shows it all and wants you to know that Bond really isn't a hero of any kind. He's just a guy who loves violence, alcohol and sex and is really good at commiting violence. It still blows my mind that after more than 20 movies this one just tells the audience thatr they shouldn't worship Bond because he's almost as bad as the villain of his own story.

@Jordi Nagel I agree. Personally very wasted potential considering how good Cary's previous work was.

@Brupcat yeah, imo No Time to Die was a flawed film (weak villain, waste of Specter, etc), but still a good sendoff to the Craig Bond. Plus, for once, all named women in the movie survive! That’s something I did not expect, and a first for this Bond

Yeah clearly, right? Not saying there isn't plenty of valid things to criticise this movie over like the plot and whatever but it actually has a pretty even treatment of women, a realistic one, it doesn't wrap them up in cotton wool and call them special it shows they can make mistakes and remain in position like Moneypenny, they can make mistakes and pay the price like M and they can make really no mistakes and still die like the lass with the whisky glass on her head. It allows them to move past just being a tragic backstory and choose to have sex with Bond, and finally shows M being able to kick some ass too.

I'm honestly fine with the shower scene. In comparison to the Casino Royale shower scene I think it works. Post-Casino Royale Bond is just a misogynistic scumbag, broken by the betrayal of the only woman he truly loved. The shower scenes parallel each other as one shows bond being empathetic and vulnerable, while the other shows him as selfish and uncaring. It's not until Spectre that he finds someone to truly love again and be a better person.

@Ben Kolding What the hell has skin colour to do with any of that? As if men of colour would generelly treat women better... People like you really can't be taken seriously. And he didn't abuse her, I can't remember a scene where she said no or in any other way showed that she wasn't interested. And she is certainly a grown up woman, as far as we and Bond know she's legally competent, and she not dependent of Bond in a way that would hinder her to reject him. Was what he did good for her mental health? How are we to know? In the end it doesn't really mather because she died the next day and it was just a movie ^^ A movie btw in which hundred of people die a violent death and the protagonist is an agent with the "licence to kill". But no, the shower scene is the one we have a problem with xD

In my option Skyfall is the best James Bond film. Not the greatest the best. Celebrating 50 years of the iconic franchise with many nice nods and references to all the films. Narratively it’s the most diverse with Judi Dench delivering an endearing performance, with her character being at the centre of the story. Bond goes through many challenges, him seemingly falling to his death only to be reborn and face a threat who has also returned from darkness, makes its a very metaphorical experience. There’s this elusive subtext within the rivalry of Bond against Silva. The character is stripped down to his bare necessities, he loses that “panache” his skills become rusty and his overall competence is questioned throughout. More importantly he has to confront his past and revisiting Skyfall gives the character some much needed depth. I love how Sam Mendes broke the traditional formula of a bond movie and made it a visceral experience. The action is smoothly paced throughout its lengthy running time, never feeling like too much or too little. The script is written with labyrinth effect. The set pieces are highly original, not typically exotic or fancy rather refined and profound. I love how it retains bonds British roots with the majority of the film taking place in the U.K. Bond overlooking the Skyfall landscape with the Aston martini behind him, is one of the most iconic moments in the series period. Finally i adore the emotionally impactful climax where M succumbs to her wound. Bond shedding some tears at her passing whilst also blowing up Skyfall makes it the most compelling climax to a bond film I’ve ever seen. And Javier Bardem was the perfect villain for the story. Not motivated by manipulating state of the art satellites or controlling the worlds oil supply, rather the simplest and best motivation a villain can possess - REVENGE! Yes Skyfall is a thinking man’s bond film. It’s certainly one for the ages.

You misread Bond's quip about Severine. We've seen what death does to him. From Vesper onwards he reacts slightly but holds it in & denies himself the ability to care. That's why, although poorly conveyed, his refusal to kill Blofeld is important beyond "I'm better than you." It's Bond admitting death effects him & choosing to stop denying it.

imo the "waste of good scotch line" should have been a win. This is Bond unwilling to show regret, even when a woman he cares for is murdered because he couldn't protect her. It's a shame for sévérine to be killed so early, but Bond's quip isn't just a way to disarm Silva, it's moreover Bond being unwilling to admit to feeling grief. Sure he didn't love sévérine, but it must have hurt him to see her killed - especially since he promised to save her - so rather than express remorse, even to himself, he hides behind gallows humour to pretend that he is an emotionless agent, which definitely isn't Craig Bond. This contrasts nicely with Silva, who has embraced his emotions and acts entirely on regret, and loses because he cannot detach himself from his emotions and plan dispassionately the way that Bond/M can

12:12 : if it makes you feel any better, there's a small theory going around that Bond was genuinely angry over Severine's death and his glib quip there was meant to disarm SIlva's henchmen before he commenced with his rampage at 12:23

11:50 - Speaking of greater cause in this scene: If Bond had hit Severine, Silva would've never fired his shot, because the game would be over. If Bond had his the glass, Silva maybe wouldn't have fired his shot, because the game as implied would be over. If Bond misses, Silva fires his shot, leaving him with an empty gun when Bond decides to take out the guards. Missing was the best play, and I believe he did it on purpose knowing this, since as soon as Silva has no shot left to shoot he makes his move.

Exactly, Severine was never going to survive long term even if Bond hits the glass and Bond is certainly going to get killed aswell. So he had to miss in order to disarm Silva to have a chance of surviving.

I always figured "what makes you think this is my first time" was pointing back to Casino Royale when Le Chiffre had him naked and tied to a chair. Also.. perhaps Bond has some reservations about jumping on to a train when he just came back from being shot and left for dead after jumping on an earlier train. That said.. wonderful win nod at the end. Your videos always bring a smile to my face and sometimes look back on things I miss. Well done, sir.

Fun fact that was recently revealed on Mr Sunday Movies' channel, in the Macau casino fight, Daniel Craig was originally wearing gloves in the final cut for this scene and it wasn't till they realised that bond wasn't suppose to be wearing gloves because of the encoded palm scanner for the Walther PPK/S that Q gave Bond earlier even though wouldn't be using the gun anyway, so the editing team CGI'd his hands to make them look like he wasn't wearing gloves apparently making them look "puffy".

Fun Fact about Kincade: In the very early stages of writing the movie's script, the writers briefly played with the idea of potentially casting Sean Connery for the role. That however was quickly thrown out the window again for various reasons, including that he most likely would have completely overshadowed Craig, Dench and Bardem.

The cinimatic precision of this movie and how beautifully shot each scene in this movie provides, placed it amongst my top five favorite movies of all time. It's a truly spectacular bond flick.

I just watched no time to die today and I must say…from childhood to now….I will miss Daniel Craig…..I have been watching all James Bond movies from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig…. Proud to be James Bond fan and will never give up on the EON production and James Bond. Edit: I am 20 and I gotta say….James Bond is the only Classy series we can get…sure there are other movies which are classy but nowadays there are Marvel and DC series but then again the only close thing we can get for class is James Bond…

In my option Skyfall is the best James Bond film. Not the greatest the best. Celebrating 50 years of the iconic franchise with many nice nods and references to all the films. Narratively it’s the most diverse with Judi Dench delivering an endearing performance, with her character being at the centre of the story. Bond goes through many challenges, him seemingly falling to his death only to be reborn and face a threat who has also returned from darkness, makes its a very metaphorical experience. There’s this elusive subtext within the rivalry of Bond against Silva. The character is stripped down to his bare necessities, he loses that “panache” his skills become rusty and his overall competence is questioned throughout. More importantly he has to confront his past and revisiting Skyfall gives the character some much needed depth. I love how Sam Mendes broke the traditional formula of a bond movie and made it a visceral experience. The action is smoothly paced throughout its lengthy running time, never feeling like too much or too little. The script is written with labyrinth effect. The set pieces are highly original, not typically exotic or fancy rather refined and profound. I love how it retains bonds British roots with the majority of the film taking place in the U.K. Bond overlooking the Skyfall landscape with the Aston martini behind him, is one of the most iconic moments in the series period. Finally i adore the emotionally impactful climax where M succumbs to her wound. Bond shedding some tears at her passing whilst also blowing up Skyfall makes it the most compelling climax to a bond film I’ve ever seen. And Javier Bardem was the perfect villain for the story. Not motivated by manipulating state of the art satellites or controlling the worlds oil supply, rather the simplest and best motivation a villain can possess - REVENGE! Yes Skyfall is a thinking man’s bond film. It’s certainly one for the ages.

I was a very young teen when the first Bond played at theaters. Sean Connery is great as Bond, yet I have been won over to believe that Daniel Craig is now the best Bond. In ‘Casino Royale’’, there are scenes that make it absolutely wonderful........ when one of bad guys planted a bomb and didn’t know that Bond had switched it until too late, my oh my..... Daniel’s expression just before that baddie went boom, so great! Another favorite scene is when the defibrillator pads wires were not connected......... WOW, that whole process is impactful!! During the main villain’s ‘Le Chiffe’ (Mads Mikkelsen, such a fantastic actor) scenes, he oozes sinister and evil!! (His portrayal of Dr. Lecter, on the TV series ‘Hannibal’.......... EEK, what a totally awesome performance!!). Edited for spelling,😐!

I'm curious how CinemaWins will feel about Bond mocking and exploiting a vulnerable widow in the next film. Because oh boy, it was extremely uncomfortable watching that.

This is definitely one of the best modern Bond films, I'd say No Time To Die was better but Skyfall was really good. I'm glad you could take off wins as well, even very good films have deep problems

Skyfall was my first Bond film and I always love it. The writing, acting, and cinematography all make for an absolute joy. - My only complaint about the film is that shower scene. I agree with Lee about it being tone deaf, especially since this film is about where the series started deconstructing Bond's character and removing the starry-eyed polish a lot of fans have towards him. - A possible rewrite could have been having the Bond-girl having a small PTSD episode in the shower given the plan to kill her boss, Bond comes in, tries to comfort her, but (through body language) is clearly uncomfortable himself since he's not used to caring about someone else like this.

i think he kept the bullet pieces on purpose in his shoulder cause he knew he would come back one day. Only his people would be able to trace the fragments. All the time while he was "enjoying death" was basically an vacation

The prepping for the siege montage gave me so much joy. It reminds me so much of Burn Notice and why I love that show so much. All the “spycraft on a low budget” tricks. Also I firmly that Michael Westen is at least as skilled as Bond or Ethan Hunt.

20:35 I saw this in theaters and I knew this was something. I had it pegged as like the start of an old James Bond TV series, but it makes just as much sense for it to be the start of I guess the first Bond movie?

I find myself balancing Mikey’s MWM Skyfall video with this one. Granted, his video was more of an indictment of Bond films as a whole and how they treat women, but leave it to the positive movie guy to remind us of the good things in Bond films while acknowledging the blatantly bad like joining Severine in the shower and her ultimate fate.

Not saying there isn't plenty of valid things to criticise this movie over like the plot and whatever but it actually has a pretty even treatment of women, a realistic one, it doesn't wrap them up in cotton wool and call them special it shows they can make mistakes and remain in position like Moneypenny, they can make mistakes and pay the price like M and they can make really no mistakes and still die like the lass with the whisky glass on her head. It allows them to move past just being a tragic backstory and choose to have sex with Bond, and finally shows M being able to kick some ass too. I find it ridiculous how one of the few films to actually treat women as a little more than a backdrop or prop gets accused of being the sexist one. This new wave "woke" cinema people are pushing films towards is only going to make worse stories, everything will have to be non-offensive kid friendly crap that loses all context and meaning. Personally I'd love to see a female Bond, I think that could really shake up the format, Emilia Clarke could probably pull off the whole sexy suave spy element and her seducing the main villain could add a new element to a Bond story, of course she could drive and shoot as well as any man, but it would be interesting to see a Bond that perhaps couldn't rely on beating the henchman in a fist fight at the end... I don't know I'm just throwing ideas out.

And what you said is exactly why this channel is superior to any other movie review/deconstruction channel. Yeah, he's looking for all of the good things, but he won't shy away from the things that are controversial, sometimes even agreeing with some of the sentiment. Other channels just focus on what they're there for, to nitpick and tear down. They rarely find anything positive to balance the negative out. There are redeeming qualities to almost any film, even the stinkers. Even if it's just the musical score, or the cinematography, or the locations they shot the movie in, there are positives to take away from a movie.

@kshamwhizzle I kinda see it as Bond not letting the villain see his true emotions, everything he says is a way to put his enemies off and make it look like they aren't getting to him (just like Silva's intro scene and his responses to Silva's flirting). It's been a running theme that he's gotten less and less empathetic as the films go on, you can compare it to how he reacted in Casino Royale in the shower scene.

@kshamwhizzle No, Bond already did that. It's still an amazing line, but it's a *villain* line. Like "For me, it was Tuesday."

3:35 Considering that the first time we saw MI6 HQ get blown up was in "The World is Not enough", I like to think that expression is M thinking "Damnit, not again!" Also, yes, Dame Judi can get it
