Skyfall

We went to see Skyfall this afternoon. I had ordered and paid tickets in advance through the magic of the internet, and we were assigned specific seats. And it was very busy, what with it being the last day of the vacation.
But when we entered the room, these seats were already taken by people who had been assigned those specific seats too -- but from the ticket office. It took some time to get it resolved, and it resulted with us getting not the best seats. By then the trailers had already started, so we had to stumble across half a row of seats to get to ours.
I hate it when things seemingly have been taken care of, except that they aren't and nobody told you in advance. I don't think I'll be taking this route for getting tickets anymore.

Anyway, the movie. We enjoyed it -- it had all those traditional exotic Bond locales like tall skyscrapers, casinos and even an uninhabited island. But at the same time it's also a bit grittier and 'dirtier' than Moore and Connery-era Bond, which I liked.
I disliked the new Q, though. [Why, you ask?]His disdain for field work is uncalled for. And I can't believe he thought himself to be so smart while connecting the laptop of a known super-hacker to the MI6 internal network. That's just stupid -- my clients don't allow that, even though I have the latest virus scanners on my laptop.

All in all, a good time was had.
