I have been thinking about Skyfall since last Thursday, and have decided that I need to watch this film again, and that I need Daniel Craig to be Bond for the rest of his life. Just OMFG! I want all the Bond fics, all of them. I want to read gen, slash, het, I don’t actually care. I just want all of them.
I have, since last Thursday, read approx 400 Bond/Skyfall fics. Yes, A03 is my bitch.
But seriously, I watched Casino Royale, Skyfall and Quantum of Solace within a week of each other, and now my brain is pretty much Bond, Bond, Bond all the time. I walked out of Skyfall being quite ambivalent, and you know, I still think it isn’t the best Bond film, but by the gods, it was pretty and the themes hit all my buttons. They took them and ground them down to dust. The pacing of this film annoys the hell out of me, and I’m extremely confused by what the hell they were trying to do with Bond’s characterization about 2/3 of the way into it. As in, I was actively going, “NOOOO! NO!” The last minute of the film makes me break out in hives because it feels like taking HUGE STEPS backward in regards to the Bond franchise, BUT, you never know, the next film might not go down the path I fear. The point (yes, there is one) is that Daniel Craig is amazing as Bond, and I swear he had chemistry with EVERY SINGLE PERSON. Just, how does he manage this?! I came out of it needing/wanting every fic written to be about him. Just wow.
So, the plan. Going to re-watch this film this weekend because it is so very pretty, and Daniel Craig is just perfect for this role, and then stalk all the interesting ppl on tumblr/lj/dw to talk about this film. Because dammit, why isn’t anyone talking about this film with me?
