  • 2012 In Film: John’s Favorite Films Of The Year

    2012 has been a great year for movies. I’ve spent more time than I’d like to admit toying with this list, struggling to get them in an order I’m ok with for more than just a few minutes. As preparation I spent a bit of time looking at my Top Ten of 2011, and in […]

  • Skyfall Review : A Bond Movie Like No Other

      Skyfall is directed by Sam Mendes and stars Daniel Craig, Judi Dench and Javier Bardem. After the release of Quantum of Solace, there was great disappointment in the James Bond series. The writers’ strike had left the film struggling with very little plot, and even had Daniel Craig contributing to the script. So, with […]

  • Guess Who’s Singing The “Skyfall” Theme?

First, here’s the plot synopsis: Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in “Skyfall,” the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time.  In “Skyfall,” Bond’s […]

  • James Bond Returns In “Skyfall”

    The production of the new James Bond film has a Twitter account (oh, 21st Century….) and live tweeted Eon’s traditional “We’re having a new Bond film so here’s all the info” press conference. Here’s the highlights: The film is titled Skyfall. Ralph Fiennes and Albert Finney are joining the cast in unspecified roles. Javier Bardem […]
