'Skyfall' (Nov. 9)

The new Bond thriller proves that Sam Mendes can direct action. Daniel Craig has already shown what he can do; now, in his third 007 installment, he finds himself in a cat-and-mouse with a slippery mastermind played by Javier Bardem. So much better than the previous Bond, "Quantum of Solace."
