Movie review:Skyfall 2012

Movie Summary: Both 007 and M are getting a bit old and their abilities are being questioned. The list of undercover agents has been stolen and the future of British intelligence and double os are threatened.

My thoughts: I loved it. I think there was an appropriate balance between action and cheesy humour that is guaranteed to entice teens to older adults. The half-naked scenes added nothing to the plot but I guess they have to conform to the Bond identity after all. But I am guilty of laughing my way through nearly the entire movie. Q was lovely, and looking forward to a new 007 and M partnership in the next movie. Honourable mentions to M and 007 - they did well in their last partnership together but they demonstrated nothing remarkable on screen. But the villain was oh so funny. I might rewatch the movie, just to see him shake his head at Bond's undying attempts to save the day.

Yet beyond the gunfire and humour, there is a message conveyed. Even though we live in the technological era where people can do a whole lot of harm in the comfort of their pjs at home, we still need someone to occasionally point the trigger. Or we need to resort to old fashioned methods in order to get the job done. As much as I love the convenience of "liking" or posting a facebook post, an ecard or text message, there is something very very special that is conveyed when you personally tell and show people you are worth the effort.

Yes it's a bit old fashioned. But pick up the phone or make a trip to share the good old christmas cheer.

Hark the herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled"
Joyful, all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With the angelic host proclaim:
"Christ is born in Bethlehem"
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"
