I saw "Skyfall" at the Celebration Cinema Crossroads' new IMAX theatre. This is the second movie that i have seen in IMAX. The first was "Raiders of the Lost Ark," in September. A film that I haven't seen in over thirty years. Although I cost a little more, sitting in front of giant screen and sitting in those big seats are worth it. But getting back to "Skyfall" or I'll probaby called it James Bond 23, It's the best James Bond in years. This is much better than the last Janes Bond movie, "Quantum of Solice," where the only good thing about this movie is the theme music. "Skyfall" will make people forget that movie and see Daniel Craig what he does best and that is playing James Bond, anbd he played it very well. Javier Bardern plays a powerful villain. He wants to take down MI6 and you know that he'll have to get pass Bond to do that. Check out the theme music from Adele which It could get an Oscar nomination as best song. One more thing I like about "Skyfall," it could retroduce James Bond to a new league of fans. Some of who dropped out after the last Bond movie. I hope they return. Harry Potter ened it run and Twilight will it's run, but James Bond will run on forever. And "Skyfall" is an indication that the series will live on forever.
The movie itself is good. Lots of story elements keep you interested between the fighting and running and chasing. As good as Casino Royal? No, probably not, but still a worthy addition to the long line of Bond films.
As for the IMAX presentation, we were promised to see more of the image than would be shown in standard theaters. So the question is, what additional portion of the image did we see? Was it more at the top of the screen? Was it more at the bottom of the screen? Hard to say. In fact if pressed I would have guessed that we saw everything at the top and bottom, but lost some of the image at the sides. So if you're thinking about seeing the IMAX version just for more of the image, I would say that you shouldn't bother if it's any more expensive, or any further out of your way. There was nothing notable about the presentation.
Audio and video quality were good.
