The new James Bond movie Skyfall has been out for a few weeks now, grossing nearly $789M worldwide and getting a healthy 91 percent on the Tomatometer. That's a damn shame, too, because it means that hundreds of critics were…

"Skyfall": Laying Bare the Unknowable Spy

If Hollywood's rut du jour is the origin story as bid for franchise immortality, you can't say that Skyfall — the 23rd "official" James Bond film in 50 years — isn't on trend. Eight years ago in Casino Royale, Daniel…

Neither Shaken Nor Stirred

Those of us who adored Casino Royale, the 2006 reboot of the haggard, self-parodic James Bond franchise, had some trouble trying to decide where to place it among the series' finest. Was it better than Goldfinger? Probably not, but close.…

Casino Royale (Sony) James Bond gets a stirring shake-up in the best -- yeah, Goldfinger fans, the best -- film in the series' 44-year history. Daniel Craig's 007 has more going on above the neck and below the waist than…
