Skyfall Review

In short, this Bond is awesome. AMAZINGLY, it reboots the franchise, not by erasing what came before but by digging deeper into the past: James Bond’s past, M’s past, MI6’s past, our collective past when we fought a cold war with spies in tuxedoes, and a film making past when films told a story with actors and not with jump cuts full of digital effects. It is so fitting that Adele sings the theme song (The best since Shirley Bassey) since her retro-modern sound is exactly the tone that Skyfall and all future Bond films can take from here on in.
