"No less a critic than C. S. Lewis has described the ravenous addiction that these magazines inspired; the same phenomenon has led me to call science fiction the only genuine consciousness-expanding drug." Arthur C. Clarke

Top 10 Science Fiction Films of 2012 #3: SKYFALL

Coming out in the UK on October 26th is Skyfall, the twenty-third James Bond film.  I include it in the science fiction genre because of the technology aspect that has become integrated into the series over the last fifty years.

The film returns stars Daniel Craig and Judi Dench as Bond and M, respectively.  The rest of the cast is dominated by Javier Bardem as Raoul Silva, the primary villain, Ralph Fiennes as a government agent, and Naomie Harris as the primary love interest.  The film is directed by Sam Mendes, director of American BeautyJarhead, and Revolutionary Road.

Skyfall, according to what has been released so far, centers around Bond’s relationship with M after certain facts about her past are revealed.  MI6 is attacked and Bond is challenged with the response.

Having been a lifelong Bond fan, I will definitely go see Skyfall as soon as I can when it comes out in the United States sometime in November.
