Skyfall is full of action and drama. Daniel Craig’s Bond is taken back to his childhood home of Skyfall as he and M (Judi Dench) square off against a disavowed agent. Cory and Geoff close out the Bond series so come along!
Skyfall starts with a mission gone wrong and Bond is presumed dead. Eve (Naomie Harris) is forced to take shot that hits Bond and sends him into the river. He lives off the radar and let’s the Service move on. But M and the service are attacked and forced underground by Silva (Javier Bardem). Silva is disavowed agent who suffered and was disowned by M. He is out for vengeance on her. Bond returns to London and is put back into the fold, but no one but M believes he is ready. Bond heads to Shanghai chasing down leads and runs into our Bond girl, Severine (Bérénice Marlohe). After more attacks, capturing and losing Silva, James and M retreat off the grid to the Bond family estate of Skyfall. They are met there by Kincade (Albert Finney), a loyal servant to the Bond family. The family house stands like a castle outpost isolated but strong. Their they make their stand against Silva and his forces. Silva is killed but not before M is mortally wounded. Bond is back in the service with a new M (Ralph Fines), but will things ever be the same?
Skyfall is a movie that takes us to several locations around the world, but unlike last week’s movie ( “The Spy Who Loved Me” ) it is not about locations. This movie was about personal relationships. The scenery was fun but the story centers around Silva’s personal vendetta against M. While he spars with James, outwits Q (Ben Whishaw), and takes shots at Gareth (Fines) it is all about M. The movie is not all about the mental game of cat and mouse, but has a nice balance of mental and physical action. The cast, locations, dialogue, and action make this a great movie.
Skyfall was my (Geoff) clear choice for the Craig era and it was because of Skyfall that Cory did his Bond-a-thon. We had a blast discussing it. Skyfall is a fitting close to our Triplecast.

Name That Movie:
The clue this week was: We left off last week with Halle Berry in “The Flintstones,” which co-stared Kyle MacLachlan.
Which lead us to the following movie: The movie was “The Librarian: Quest for the Spear.”
Next time Cory will be joined by Mark Des Cotes (GSM host, who also has several shows of his own over at Solo Talk Media.) They will discuss “The Librarian: Quest for the Spear,” “The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines,” and “The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice.” So come along for the fun adventures!
