  1. Saw “Skyfall” twice this weekend: once on opening day, the second on the following day.

    As a fan of both the books and the movies, I would definitely go as far as saying it is the best Bond of them all. It couldn’t have been more perfect. Everything about it was so breath taking and beautiful, it’s one of those movies I didn’t want to end.

    • any chicken little jokes?

      • Haha, when “Skyfall” was confirmed to be the title waaaaaay back when, that’s the first thing that came to mind. But no

  2. Javier Bardem surely deserves to be nominated for the Academy Award Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance in Skyfall.
    He was absolutely brilliant!!
    Judi Dench also deserves to be nominated for her role in the movie as well.

    • Agreed. The scene where M recites poetry in front of the court as part of defending the agents of MI6 while Bond is running as fast as he can through the streets of London is absolutely stunning and powerful:

      “Though much is taken, much abides; and though
      We are not now that strength which in old days
      Moved Earth and Heaven
      That which we are, we are…
      One equal temper of heroic hearts,
      Made weak in time and fate, but strong in will
      To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”

      The entire movie is absolutely fantastic, but that is probably my favorite scene

      • No offense, but a spoiler warning would be very helpful.

        • Everything I just said is not a spoiler. I did not reveal any plot twists, shocking surprises, or anything that would ruin the movie for you. I’m sorry if it did, I understand

          • Hey, thanks for the nice response, ACW. I may be in the minority here, but with movies I really want to see, I try to avoid everything about the film, preferring to know nothing about it when I enter the theater. The less I know, the more pleasurable the experience for me.
            My wife likes to rib me about it – “You saw an explosion! Oh no! The movie’s ruined for you!” :) But when I saw The Avengers and TDKR without catching any previews/trailers, the payoff was awesome.

            And with Skyfall, I cannot wait to see this film!

            • Haha, I understand, that was really a hypocrite move of mine. I’m the same way. When it comes to a movie I really want to see, I don’t want anything given away. I apologize, it isn’t fair for me to ruin the slightest of a great movie

    • meh sorry never felt he was a threat.

      I mean are you telling me no one in the intelligence community knew what happened on that island?

      No one knew he ‘lived’?

      How did he amass what he did all under the radar?

      At least other/previous villians are explainable.

      He did well with what he had but sorry not Academy worthy.

      • Well if he could hack into MI6, i’m sure he could find a way not to be found until he wanted to be found.

      • Exactly! I’m sorry it was a good performance but the award isn’t for most underdeveloped villain. he was a less compelling joker. imo

  3. Saw both Skyfall and Wreck-it Ralph this weekend. Both were a little disappointing. When I say disappointing though, they didn’t live up to my expectations. Still good movies but I thought Skyfall was maybe an 8 out of 10 and Wreck-it Ralph was maybe a 7 out of 10.

    Skyfall was definitely enjoyable, I enjoyed Casino Royale more. Wreck-it Ralph on the other hand I did not enjoy until about the last 30 minutes. I think the trade mark “heart warming” ending made it better but I was waiting through out the movie for a reason why this would be a good movie.

  4. What book/graphic novel would you want adapted to Tge big screen?

    • I’d like another adaption of “Flowers for Algernon”, I really did enjoy “Charly”. But that’s one remake I think I’d actually enjoy

    • John Niven’s “Second Coming”. Jason Lee as Jesus, George Clooney as God and Danny Devito as Satan.

  5. One of the best films ever was “Cool Hand Luke”. The whole movie impressed me more than it should have. I greatly recommend it. Watch it. Now.

    Seriously, you should watch it. I stumbled upon it while switching through channels, and found it on TCM. Very dramatic, especially towards the end. George Simmons deserved the Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role.

    • Haha. You must be a young one. I originally saw the movie decades ago and have watched it numerous times since. Don’t know who George Simmons is, but if you meant George Kennedy, he actually did win an Academy Award for his performance in it. Paul Newman also deserved an award for his role, in my opinion. A great movie.

      • I love Cool Hand Luke. When they finally break him, i almost cried lol. The egg eating scene and the ending are some of my all time favorite movie scenes.


    A man’s wife is brutally murdered by a serial killer and his son is left physically disabled. In a twisted turn of events his son is kidnapped and he has to chase the kidnapper thousands of miles with the help of a mentally disable woman.

    • Finding memo?? Lol

    • Finding Nemo

      • Finding Nemo indeed. haha.

  7. @ignur Rantington
    Finding Memo?? Lol

    • Womman Arrives in strange land. Kills the first person she meets. Meets up with a Heartless soul, an intellecutally challenged man and a man who is coward. Together they travel through out the land killing even more in search of a delussional old man.

      • Hahahaha the Wizard of Oz. Good one Jeff!

        • A man causes a biological catastrophe and he’s on the run, hiding from the people he used to call friends. His wife abandons him and his only son turns to another man in need of a father figure. To save the lifes of his beloved ones from a nuclear desaster, he needs to go back to the place of his biggest failure.

          • Hmm that kind of sounds like the Simpsons movie though I’m not certain. :???:

            • Correct. I like this game, we should make this a regular feature on every Open Discussion.

    • I’m about 4 or 5 hours in. So far, it’s pretty good. Very slow beginning. I wish I had more time to put into it so I could get vested into it.

  8. Iron Man 3 is supposedly wrapping up principle photography this wednesday.

  9. Just saw perks of being a wallflower, it is the take shelter of 2012, it will be overlooked and its a shame. a fantastic movie with 3 great performances from young actors.

  10. The other day I saw the Firefly 10th Anniversary special. It was nice and made me teary-eyed at the end, but the whole discussion with the cast sitting around the table felt way too scripted and acted. I thing Firefly would have deserved a more candid and natural get-together.
