At Skyfall

by Mr. Nobel

While I do love my mom, she’s not the best person with which to watch movies. She has this habit of asking both really obvious and rather insistent questions throughout the film which gets less endearing and significantly more aggravating as the movie goes on. Here’s a sampling of the crap she said while the family was watching Skyfall (spoilers follow):

when James Bond gets introduced by the theme music

Mom: Is this James Bond?

when the bad guy pulls out his blinged Glock

Mom: Is that a gun? Oh, no he’s got a gun! He’s got a gun!

when James Bond talks to M in her house

Mom: Who is that? What’s that on M’s computer?

when the main bad guy starts walking towards James Bond

Mom: Is he the bad guy?

when the main bad guy shoots the main Bond girl in the head

Mom: Is she dead?

when the helicopters appear after James Bond explains to the main bad guy Q’s radio gizmo

Mom: Where did they come from?

when the main bad guy tries to shoot M

Mom: Why does he not like her?

when the main bad guy storms Skyfall

Mom: Why didn’t they bring any back up?

Me: Good point, Mom.

Mom: Also, why is he trying to kill the old lady?


when James Bond stands on the roof of MI6 with several union jacks in plain sight

Mom: Where is this? Is this Shanghai again?

when the credits start to roll

Mom: Was this James Bond?

Yes, Mom. Yes it was.
