Ohhh, Look…More 007 Visual Candy; 'Skyfall' Intro and Bond Doc

Gotta love this Internet. The latest James Bond film, Skyfall, opened in US theaters less than a week ago. A massive hit already (deemed by some to be the best Bond yet) but now you can behold the marvelous opening title sequence without even setting foot in a cineplex! Though to the credit of Sam Mendes and Daniel Kleinman you should totally see this on the BIG screen.

To those who know Bond, the films always feature a rather beautiful kaleidoscopic opening credits sequence. A combination of guns, girls, and a mix of foreshadowed plot and film footage, this wondrously dark sequence is perfectly complimented by Adele’s theme song which just oozes nostalgia. Kleinman’s work has and continues to raise the bar set so high by Maurice Binder. So enough banter, enjoy the into sequence, sans credits, from Skyfall

But for those of you who can’t get enough of 007, check out this incredibly dense feature length documentary from director Stevan Riley called Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007

Thanks to The Film Stage for the heads up on the doc. If you’re at work, this might be the perfect lunch time treat if you’ve got some headphones handy. To those of you who’ve seen Skyfall, what’d you think? Further, I have an idea that there’s a direct correlation between Bond music and the story, specifically that the strength of the film depends on the strength of the song. Agree or disagree? Further, what’s your favorite Bond theme song??
