SKYFALL - The Moral of the Teenage Q

Skyfall brought in more money than any other Bond film.

It also had the daftest plot.

There's a moral here for all entrepreneurs!

First the teenage Q played the big shot - "I can do more damage in my pyjamas before breakfast on my laptop than you can do in a year in the field.".

Well, actually he was right.

He went on to brag about how he wrote the security which only a handful of people knew about, including the villain.

Then, he cleverly switched on the villain's laptop using the security he wrote -  which promptly released the imprisoned villain to blow a hole in London's underground, and shooting any number of people before shooting out a public enquiry.

Not wishing to be outdone by the teenager, Bond then cleverly set a trap for the villain - "one step ahead"  he said.

The trap involved using M as bait, to lure the villain and his small army with heavy firepower to a remote house, where Bond and an old gamekeeper would take them on with a couple of shotguns.

Surprise, surprise, this got M killed.

At least the film had a silver lining - it got rid of  Judi Dench who just stood there terrified in the chapel even when the villain gave her his gun to shoot him...
