“Skyfall,” a pretty terrific movie (I liked it as much as my colleague Soren Andersen did), is probably the closest we’ll ever get to a James Bond origin story — and that seems right, in celebration of 50 years on screen.

(We’re talking “official” Bonds, mind you; not the likes of David Niven and Woody Allen.) What do you think?

And, just for a refresher, here’s a 50th-anniversary compilation of 140 great Bond moments. Happy weekend — to Bond, and to all of you.
