NRH's Weekly Analysis: Skyfall's metanarrative

Skyfall is a Bond film about Bond, both genre and man. Sam Mendes and company created a truly all-encompassing, retrospective-filled 50th Anniversary celebration. Skyfall is the type of film that shouldn't happen and it's the...

Ten films that should be in the Criterion Collection

The Criterion Collection is amazing, but it could always be more amazing. The ever-expanding list of films (so much of which is worth buying) has some pretty big gaps. So that's why I'm here: to help coax the company into choosing some film...

Flixist Awards 2012: Best Cinematography

Cinematography is what gives film its most unique visual qualities. We often talk about film in terms of characters, plot, setting and writing but what really separates film as a medium is cinematography. The way things are shot, aligned or...

Flixist Awards 2012: Best Original Soundtrack

Soundtracks are the nervous system of a film. You don't see them, but if it stopped working for a few seconds, the film dies. A soundtrack or orchestration is just as important as the actors and actresses on screen. And some of the best sou...

A proper 50 Years of Bond tribute

For those who didn't see the Oscars, they had a segment which was a 50 year tribute to the James Bond franchise. Let's just say that it was not exactly the greatest tribute they could have done, and it was quite the missed opportunity that...

Flixist Awards 2012: Best Supporting Actress

Perhaps the most interesting thing about 2012's award season was how much stock was put into some of the supporting performances. Usually, supporting actors and actresses play second fiddle to the leading characters, and when awards time co...

The best damn Oscar predictions around: 2013 edition

Last year we made the bold statement that our Oscar predictions were the best ever. Were we 100 percent right? No. But that doesn't mean we're going to back down from outlandish claims about our incredible ability to predict who is going to...

Adele to perform Skyfall for the first time at Oscars

Adele hasn't sung her Golden Globe winning, Oscar nominated song "Skyfall" live before. As with most Bond songs it came out and was a hit, but doesn't always jump into the artists actual repertoire of songs. She also hasn't been doing much ...

Matt's Nine Manliest Movies of 2012

Look there are good movies every year, and there are bad movies every year. That's just a fact of life so why try to list good and bad when there are far more important things to point out in a year. Important things like manliness and bein...

Trailer: Skyfall

As Bond Month at Flixist is making its way toward Skyfall, we've got a new trailer to share. It's pretty similar to the first trailer and the international spot, but there are snippets of new footage that are an exciting taste of what's to...

Adele's Skyfall theme lets the sky fall, stands tall

While I'm not a huge enough James Bond fan to dissect the movies, like say Matt and Xander's awesome Across the Bond series, or see them at all (more on that later this month), I know enough about the Bond themes to know that a lot of the ...

Skyfall's Bond girls get a video blog

Matt and I are ridiculously devoted Bond nerds, so expect extensive coverage of the fifty-year old series in the build-up to Flixist's Skyfall review next month. You'll hear more about that very soon, but in the meantime, the movie's publi...

Trailer: Skyfall

We have a new international spot for Skyfall here and it's pretty much what we saw in the full international trailer, but more compact. Despite that it's hard not to get excited, especially when they keep ending ever trailer with that...

New Skyfall poster

Look at that beautiful bastard's face! He'd just as soon kill you than look at you. This is the new U.K. poster for Skyfall, and it may be a little cliche for a Bond promotion, but it still sums the character up rather nicely. He's cool, su...

Roger Deakins talks Skyfall and film vs digital

Roger Deakins is one of the most respected cinematographers working today, so when he weighs into the film vs digital debate, it's an opinion worth hearing. Turns out he comes down confidently on the side of digital, which won't please man...

These five new Skyfall posters leave a bit to be desired

007.com revealed five new UK Skyfall posters today and successfully released the first bit of advertisement for the film that made me, a die hard Bond fan, not so happy. These posters could be more boring, but it would be pretty darn hard, ...

Trailer: Skyfall

What? Back to back Skyfall trailers? Well, in all honesty the TV trailer from yesterday was more like a teaser to today's main dish: a big serving of Bond action and Javier Bardem villainy. The trailer also reveals a bit more about the plo...

First look at Skyfall's very young new Q, Ben Wishaw

Here we have a first look at Ben Wishaw as James Bond's new Q in the hotly-anticipated new Bond flick Skyfall. I suppose I'm conditioned to think this after a lifetime of seeing Q as a white-haired old man, but this Q does seem startlingly ...

First official Skyfall poster revealed

It's only four days (FOUR DAYS!!!!) until the first trailer for Skyfall, James Bond's fiftieth anniversary adventure, is released. For me, it's a dark horse to be 2012's best blockbuster, even with The Avengers, The Hobbit, Prometheus and Q...

SPOILER: Why Skyfall is called Skyfall

Skyfall lands in the IMAX for the biggest Bond yet

James Bond's twenty-third go-round to be called Skyfall?

James Bond is kind of like Doctor Who, but with more spy stuff and less "EXTERMINATE." Every now and then he changes form while retaining his identity. He's been around since before my parents were born (they're young). He (Bond, not the Do...
