“Skyfall”—opens November 9
Of course the latest James Bond has to be on any list of high-octane adventure films. Sure the last installment, “Quantum of Solace”, was bland and forgettable, but “Casino Royale” was the best Bond movie in many years. So think of this as Daniel Craig’s rubber match with the iconic super spy. It doesn’t hurt matters that “Skyfall” has all of the elements that make Bond great, and tells the most personal story since “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”.
