"The Sky's a falling down!" said Miss Henny Penny: The James Bond movie

I did actually enjoy the James Bond movie, the initial visuals were quite interestingly surrealistic and certainly there was a fair amount going on in the movie. 

I wondered if they were going to run into Liam Neason's character from Taken 2 who was known to be running around the same Instabul rooftops. 

As in my earlier report which I probably didn't publish here (actually I did,  SEE: Early news about Skyfall), I wondered how the story might focus on Miss Henny Penny telling everyone that the sky was falling down because of the title Skyfall but one character revealed herself to be Miss Moneypenny somewhere in the movie when it was least expected as if it were a big surprise so maybe it all works out there. 

Xavier Bardom's character was excellent in terms of the way that all modern Bond villains seem to have to be able to have a fight with Bond rather than sit behind a desk somewhere stroking a cat expecting others around him to do the work, which is great after the previous Bond villain. 

I thought that the scene where Bond meets Q for the first time seemed a bit dodgy, someone in the gallery ought to have complained to the security guard at the site of the exchange of weaponry, I would have, and Bond's jacket/ coat in that scene looked a bit odd on him probably because he had shoulders like a gorilla otherwise he seemed well dressed in the rest of theories in terms of general fitting. 

However the way a certain main villain got loose or a certain Sumo wrestler sized heavy in a casino allowed himself to get killed and a certain hard drive full of data that shouldn't have existed got into enemy hands seemed rather appalling to me slightly but I realise that this what it takes to get a film made these days, and it was enjoyable enough to deserve repeat viewings. 

My friend Miss Tryon wasn't too impressed with Bond's haircut and she thought that he looked more like some sort of a communist spy or whatever

I think the movie was really about Miss Moneypenny/Henny Penny dropping acorns on people's heads to get them confused thinking that the sky was falling down on them and then do stupid things to get the film story movie, or maybe it was the villain Silva secretly dropping the acorns all along. but otherwise it was great entertainment

One could start going down a funny little world of people with memory implants of themselves being the one and only James Bond and the rest of the people are conditioned to think that he is the one and only James Bond including the groundsman at his old family home. And the way the old Aston Martin was dragged out of storage, it might as well be the way that Dr Who uncovered a replacement K9 in storage in his Tardis. Maybe this James Bond is supposed to be a Time Lord, that could explain all the different looking James Bonds

I hope Bond's family home gets rebuilt and what they'll replace it with is a mansion at least a two hundred years older
