Despite the long wait, most fans should be pleased with this news. Skyfall wasn't without its problems, but it had something very few of these dorky, overblown, and super-serious recent blockbusters can't say: It was cool. It balanced mind-blowing stunts like the the Istanbul motorcycle chase with dialogue that never took the machinations of the film too seriously; it was perfectly shot; and, until it fell apart into an (arguably hilarious) homage to Home Alone, it provided both modern-day Jason Bourne-esque realism and classic Bond escapism. Plus, Bérénice Marlohe. Good God.
So, yeah, in this aforementioned summer of dorky, overblown, and super-serious blockbusters, gimme another movie like Skyfall. I just want to walk out of a movie theater again without feeling like I watched a nerd knock down his Lego buildings for three hours.
I want more like this!
