Like any great American, or British person, you probably spent most of Christmas Day binge-watching James Bond movies because that is a far more palatable alternative to talking to your relatives. And you probably cringed at the scene in Skyfall where the bad guys blew up a classic Aston Martin DB5.
These days filmmakers often turn to computer graphics for scenes of destruction that would otherwise be too expensive or dangerous to stage in real life. But Skyfall posed a different problem.

James Bond is back, and Skyfall looks like it's going to be pretty awesome. Anything that starts off with the world's greatest secret agent getting shot in the chest has our undivided attention.
