Skyfall is the twenty-third James Bond movie but this time, the movie has a very interesting topic: The Generational Gap. Review by Isabel del Rio

Skyfall is a 007 thriller produced by Eon Productions and distributed by MGM and Sony Pictures Entertainment. Starring by Daniel Craig (third performance as MI5 agent 007), and Javier Bardem (Raoul Silva, his adversary). The movie was directed by Sam Mendes and written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan. Congratulations to the writers!

Yes, congratulations! In fact, I’m a fan of James Bond. I think I’ve read all of Ian Fleming books and I’ve seen all of James Bond movies (from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig). I loved that James Bond (very different to the current one) so smart, ironic, wasteful, flirt, self-confident… a man for a time where the economy was a joke and heroism was the true value. A time where politicians didn’t control everything and where teenagers respected the experience of older people. A time where computers were not placed on an altar and bureaucrats did not have the last word. A time less austere and more cheerful.

In Skyfall, James Bond is seriously injured in a train in Istanbul and he spends some months in Turkey thinking of his possible retirement. In London, MI5 presumes Bond is dead. No problem, times are changing, and even the boss (M, the old mom) is having troubles with the current government. Now, nobody wants old heroes and a new spy service: MI6 is developing.

However, M is attacked by terrorists (Raoul Silva) and the whole MI5 is in risk. James Bond must return.

Poor OO7! He is going to find a new world, where politicians command and accuse publicly M, where teenagers are the kings of the computers and where nobody wants to risk nothing. Reports and more reports to justify the ineptitude!

James Bond is accused of getting old, is accused of his old vicious (drink and seduction)… nobody remembers his old services to the nation. Nobody? Well, M did and James Bond, with his old methods and in his old family home in Scotland, will try to save her once again.

How does the film end? Well, you should see. But teenagers and people with experience will have to talk, because they have two ways of living and in a point, they should understand each other while politicians keep on talking nonsenses on TV to win audience and votes.

In the end: The Generation Gap.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
