1. Skyfall (Sony/Columbia/MGM, 3,505 Theaters, 143 Minutes, Rated PG-13): I am a bit of an outsider here at FilmBuffOnline in the fact that I am not a rabid of James Bond fan. While I do own all the films, I have only seen a handful of them (this I hope rectify when my free time becomes more abundant, hopefully with about 15 years or so).
But I do appreciate James Bond, especially what he brings to the big screen. He has created some many iconic images (with just about every actor who has played him) that he deserves his exalted spot in the world of pop culture.
This is the third film in the Daniel Craig-era of the character, one with a more serious and gritty feel to it. But you can see why the character has lasted 50 years. I dare you to watch the trailer and not squeal just a bit, especially when Craig, as Bond, fixes his cuffs after landing in the sawed-off train car.
