    Skyfall. Absolutely frigging amazing Bond movie!

    by L.H.Puttgrass

    And it looks that much better in IMAX! Don't miss it!

  • Nov. 10, 2012, 1:03 a.m. CST

    Please don't spoil Skyfall on the show too much.

    by Shermdawg

    I won't get to see it until next weekend.

  • Nov. 10, 2012, 1:11 a.m. CST

    shermdawg - It's pretty good and worth the wait.

    by L.H.Puttgrass

    Don't get spoiled. There are some things that are better left unknown for your first viewing. They usually say when they're about to go into spoiler stuff on the show.

    Skyfall?

    by adeceasedfan

    Is that the new Star Wars? Does anything else matter? Who's hungry? How 'bout waffles?

    Here is a spoiler for Skyfall: It sucks.

    by frank

    very overrated,over-hyped borefest. i almost got asleep in the cinema. it is not as bad as QOS but it is not the best Bond ever that some critics want to make you believe. so lower your expectations when you go to see it.

  • I've seen allllll your posts in the other Skyfall TBs. We get it. You did NOT like it. Not at all. You can't please everyone. Ever. You name the movie and there will be people who didn't enjoy it. Forrest Gump. Apollo 13. Men in Black. The Harry Potter movies. The Twilight movies. Inception. The Avengers. Nolan's Batman movies. All movies that a lot of people like and some ...don't. (Twilight... Please. No more. I know. One more.) Get over it! It's ONE movie. There are others. Go see them. And prepare yourself. There is a pretty good chance that they will make another Bond movie. With Craig as Bond. Using the events in this one as canon. Sorry.

    l.h.puttgrass keep your fascism to yourself.

    by frank

    if you don't like my posts just ignore them. but don't tell me to stop posting because you don't like hearing the truth about your shitfest movie. ok? and as for making another Bond movie well this is a fucking good thing because maybe, just maybe the next movie might be a true masterpiece and not this overrated,overhyped turd. capisce?

  • Nov. 10, 2012, 2:22 p.m. CST

    Oh, boy. Okay, Cave. I'll just stick to your last post. Here we go...

    by L.H.Puttgrass

    1. l.h.puttgrass keep your fascism to yourself. if you don't like my posts just ignore them. but don't tell me to stop posting because you don't like hearing the truth about your shitfest movie. ok? Fascism? Really? I told you that you made your point and that maybe you should calm down. It's only a movie. One movie. I never said to stop posting. I meant that it's not the end of the world. And it's not mine. Not at all. I don't even get a piece of the gross. 2. and as for making another Bond movie well this is a fucking good thing because maybe, just maybe the next movie might be a true masterpiece and not this overrated, overhyped turd. I liked it. You didn't. As for overrated and over hyped? That would be your opinion. We are all entitled to have one. A true masterpiece? A turd? Your speculation and opinion. The facts are that many critics and audiences like the movie very much. Check out Rotten Tomatoes and other such sites. Are they right or wrong? That would bring us back to opinions. 3. capisce? Capisce? Really? Which family of Italian Johnsons are you from? I once met a Tuscany Smith. Good people. ;)

    1. then in that case, i ll keep posting about how shitty Skyfall is. and i am calm. you would know, if i wasn't. 2. I didn't like it because it is a mediocre movie. This is not a statement of an opinion but a statement of a fact. You liked it? cool. but it means shit about the quality of the film. the opinion of the critics and the audience? really? you are going there? how about giving YOUR reasons for considering this vomit a great cinematic experience apart from the obvious one that you liked it? 3. i am not italian.

    l.h.puttgrass. frigging?

    by adeceasedfan

    Is that more cajun/creole/swamp people language? I'm sure you meant: Skyfall. Absolutely inserting a male reproductive organ into a female reproductive organ in a repetitious manner amazing Bond movie! Because that makes more sense, right? Anyway, I'm glad you liked it. Not sure if I'll make it to the theater for this one, though. Frigging however? I might try that out. Of course finding a suitable female reproductive organ might prove difficult. Especially if its host reads Ain't It Cool News.

    Going to do my best to tune in this evening. Sorry for isolating. It's been a tough few weeks. I have not even called my best friend back in weeks. I've been a hermit, except for doing my music thing and volunteering to work the election, which I'd committed to a while back. I hope you have all been well and I'll be back soon.

    adeceasedfan - It was 1am and I was tired.

    by L.H.Puttgrass

    I started to type out fucking, but thought better of it and inserted the substitute. Frigging. Could have went with frakking, but that just seemed a little too BSG fanboyish for me. So I went with frigging. Skyfall is quite good. The action and pacing kept things moving along. The plot points concerning M, Bond's past, and a certain former agent of her's are cool and give insight into Bond's character and motivations. This one goes places that other Bonds haven't. The opening pretitle sequence is fucking amazing! Great action. The last scene at the end feels like someone grabbed the next Bond flick like a pump-action shotgun and chambered a shell with a satisfying Cha-Chunk!! Its damn good. Better than Casino Royale? I don't know. It's different, it covers different themes. Casino had Bond becoming a 00 agent. The plot in this one has him questioning that 00 status. Another thing, it runs at about 2 hours, 23 minutes and I never looked at my watch. One scene moves right into the next with a nice pace. Boom-Boom-Boom! One weird thing that happened was when it came out. It was supposed to open on Friday the 9th. The midnight show would've been 12:01 am Nov. 9. And that is how the digitally presented version of the movie debuted here. But the IMAX version came out a day earlier on Thursday the 8th with the 12:01 am midnight show and then regular showtimes through out the day. I caught the 4:40 pm showing. I've never seen a movie open before the official release time. Well, I hope you enjoy it whenever you see it. Oh, I see you've made eye contact with the bear. You should have listened to the park ranger's rules. Or at least the sandwich artist at Subway...

    Life can get in the way of fun. I totally understand and am just glad see your name pop up. I emailed you last week, but it probably looked like spam fron the subject. Take care. Hopefully we'll see you tonight.

    I'm just being stupid. I wasn't sure how to pop in during your little scuffle, so I went with stupid, which I'm good at. Skyfall looks soooooooo frigging awesome! I am excitement.

  • Nov. 10, 2012, 6:09 p.m. CST

    gotilk!! There you are! We were concerned for a while there.

    by L.H.Puttgrass

    I've never worked an election. I've just been a voter. I don't know your politics and that doesn't really matter to me, but... did your guy WIN?!!??!?! After putting in all that effort, I wouldn't want it to have gone for naught. I wouldn't want anyone to feel anywhere near like poor Ted Nugent does. Poor guy. Ted, you didn't win. Don't pout. Be an adult and vote your heart out in 2016. My guess is you'll be voting against either Joe Biden or Hillary C. Go outside and shoot a critter. You'll feel better. Sometimes The Nuge just makes me smile. Or laugh. ;)

    adeceasedfan - So did the kids enjoy their waffles this morning?

    by L.H.Puttgrass

    I had Cheerios. But yesterday I had the He-Man Breakfast at the Bayou Cane Coffee Shop. Sadly, it had nothing to do with the Masters of the Universe.

  • Nov. 10, 2012, 6:51 p.m. CST

    by adeceasedfan

    Funny how things can change in a matter of minutes. My son has Celiac disease which requires gluten free flour and I didn't realize supply was too low for waffles. So we had scrambled eggs and toast. This started a horrible chain reaction with my daughter who's not a scrambled egg fan. It put her in a mood that resulted in a complete meltdown at ballet. I had coffee...not enough. He-man huh? Sounds powerful.

  • Nov. 10, 2012, 6:57 p.m. CST

    Not exactly.

    by frank

    You and I, order subway sandwiches. They accidentally put a lot of salt in them. I mean a lot. We eat them. After finishing, you say: I liked the sandwich. I didn't notice it being salty. I say: I didn't like it at all, it was very salty. So here is the thing: Am i expressing an opinion when i say the sandwich was too salty,therefore i didn't like it or i state a fact? sandwiches for thought.

    Agreed, Stanton or Johnston. Flipside, though:

    by CelluloidNitrate

    Disney can't be too happy with Stanton, while Tis might be the reason Johnston was 'too busy' for Captain America 2. Whoever gets this movie is in a worse position than Stanton. Princess of Mars is a niche property, and he 'failed', but he can go back to Pixar and still have a career. Whoever makes VII, if they fail, will be a bigger joke than Jar Jar.

    Skyfall was to Bond...

    by Teddy Artery

    ...what JJ Abrams Star Trek was to Star Trek movies... sort of. Skyfall paid a number of tributes to the older Bond movies, while expanding expectations of what should be in a Bond movie. The character back stories for both Bond and the baddy made me feel pity and sadness for both. Each with a terrible tragedy in their pasts.

    about the salty subway sandwiches. oh well, if they can't beat you, they ignore you. at least i hope you enjoyed that salty Skyfall. I didn't. Because it was salty. Fact.

  • Nov. 12, 2012, 2:16 a.m. CST

    Okay dude, this is how it works...

    by L.H.Puttgrass

    If the sandwiches are, indeed, saltier than the normal Subway procedure for Artistic Sandwich Preparation, then when comparing these subs to the regular subs your sodium measurements should reveal the higher salt content of the ill prepared sandwiches. And therefore it would a FACT that these sandwiches have more salt in them than the properly prepared sandwiches. This is correct. Here is where you fail. * Read that in a Yoda voice. Just for Shits & Giggles. * Both of you eat those subs. You, with your gourmet palate, find it salty. Possibly too salty, to the point that you not only dislike it, but can't eat it. You dislike it and say that it is too salty. Then Adeseasedfan eats his and maybe he eats a lot of fast food or maybe he's a saltaholic, shaking it all over everything he eats or perhaps today this is just the way it strikes him, whatever, but he says These are good. I like them. Aren't they too salty? you say. Nope, they're good. he says. Guess what? You're both neither right or wrong. BECAUSE YOU ARE BOTH EXPRESSING YOUR OWN OPINIONS OF THE SANDWICHES!!! It wouldn't matter if they served Adeseasedfan a block of salt between two pieces of bread with a pickle on the side and he went after it like a deer with a salt lick! Because whether he likes it or not, finds it salty or not is his opinion. And now for my next trick, it's bed time. Later, Cavejohnson.

    by MovieManStill

    I just saw "Prometheus" - after all of the discussion on the radio show, I knew nothing. My take? Great effects. Stupid dialogue. People doing idiotic things. Very disappointing.

    block of salt block of salt block of salt

    by frank

    but still no answer to my question. when a sandwich is very,very salty and i say i don't like it because it has a lot of salt in it, am i expressing a fact or an opinion? block of salt, block of salt, block of salt. Skyfall had no story, no conflict, no drama, no tension, no balls, no sexuality, a mess of subplots and themes, bad crafted action choreographs and the bond girl was an 80yo hag. a waste of great performances because there was no character exploration to serve. these things exist in the movie, so i express when i say i didn't like this shitfest because of all those bad things that it had (salt), am i expressing an opinion or a fact? block of salt, block of salt, block of salt. @l.h.puttgrass yeah, i am sure eating 1kilo of salt put between two slices of bread is very delicious. yes indeed. which brings us to another fact: if you like, you have bad taste. which means you have bad taste in cinema. which means you like shitty movies like Skyfall. not an opinion. fact.

    Prometheus....

    by MovieManStill

    Also, I went in, expecting to be confused, by what I'd heard, but it was pretty straightforward, if you don't ignore certain (intentional?) inconsistencies with "Alien". Theron is totally wasted in her role. The "humorous sidekicks" are distracting. The surface storm would have ripped the people to shreds. Etc. I may go to the archives, and listen to the review/discussion again...

  • Nov. 14, 2012, 1:04 a.m. CST

    OK, just listened to the archive.

    by MovieManStill

    Damn, forgot that I was "called out" for the "breathless babbling" comment (I stand by that). Interesting discussion. Believe me, I love Ridley Scott. As I said in a previous post, I had the privilege of having dinner with him (and his DP), when scouting a movie, a long time ago, in a galaxy... He was very kind, truly fascinating - a gentleman. BUT, "Prometheus" is a major disappointment. As Herc said.....somewhat of a remake of "Alien." I would say more, but I must awaken in four hours to work on a stupid commercial...ah, the feature days. Unrelated...in the background, my TV remote somehow settled on a bizarre religious TV channel. Jim Bakker still has a show?? I remember the days, as a Southern preacher's kid, watching the PTL Club for entertainment...
