    'Skyfall' Or Skyfail: What Worked & What Didn't In James Bond's Latest

    Over the weekend, it sounds like more than a few of you checked out "Skyfall" -- $80 million+ worth of you, in fact.

    'Skyfall' Review. Bond At 50: Older, Wiser, Much Better Written

    TIFF Review: 'Great Expectations' Is A Handsome But Stodgy Literary Adaptation

    Adapted a dozen times for television and film (most memorably by David Lean back in 1946), the Charles Dickens classic "Great Expectations" is a tale ripe with thematic undercurrents, one that is more-than-ready for reinvention, interpretation, and reconfiguration.

    As we've reported earlier, this fall's 007 romp "Skyfall" will have what can charitably be described as "a whole heaping fuckload" of complex promotional tie-ins, corporate sponsorships, and licensing arrangements.
