I cant help feeling like this film reminded me of TDK/TDKR in some ways, but it was still a very good film.

Caught it last week in IMAX, excellent film yeah the colours were so bright especially when he was on the boat to the casino looked awesome

Villian was good too

I thought they were hinting towards DC's last movie with the whole "it's a young mans game" and him failing the tests etc but according to my mate hes signed up for another 2 films and the way it ended with the whole M money-penny Q team getting assembled gives it a good outlook for the future

Keep your glory gold and glitter!!

yeah i feel like there was a lot of old/new stuff going on, a bunch of the dialogue was kinda meta w them describing the ship and everyone talking about how old-fashioned spies are. it was the perfect way to modernise bond imo just like when batman wants to be able to turn his head. little moments

the villian seemed a little too careless at times near the end for being such a genius but other than that it was amazing

the apparent juxtaposition was really entertaining. how they weaved today's rampant cybercrime and an old-fashioned authority figure were too perfectly embodied in both bond and bardem. nice way to bring heart and nostalgia to a franchise that was a bit off the beaten path in the past. bardem's homo tendencies were lulz

Same thing I kept thinking. Bardem even reminded me almost of a mixture of Bane and The Joker in ways.

I didn't like how they had that underlying theme of bond & them being too old for the job & shit tbh

^ It was supposed to be tongue-in-cheek. New guard supposed to take over the old guard, but the old guard is still needed.

I just realized this.

shanghai scenes in skyfall = hong kong scenes in TDK
mI6 base scenes = joker getting interrogated scenes

Not sayin they're the same, but visually they felt the same. Also, Bardem's character did seem like a mixture of Bane and Joker. (Mastermind evil of Bane, and Tone/Wittiness of the Joker.) Still a really good movie though. The opening credits of Bond movies always get me.

yup. Sam Mendes (director of skyfall) specifically stated that Nolan's TDK was an inspiration for this movie, and one of the reasons he felt confident he could make Skyfall

interview here

i dont get what "skyfall" was though. like, what that word is in reference to. i think i missed that. i also didnt like the way the Silva went out at the end. how come so many movies lately have an anti-climatic villain death?

Skyfall refers to Bond's childhood house in case anyone is wondering.

Actually, the bad guy's target was not Bond. The fact that you missed that means you are in no position to give a rating.

there were so many cool moments. the first shot w bond and the bond theme, the aston martin, silva molesting bond, etc etc

i just watched it again and noticed the whiskey silva gets for bond is 50 years old, like bond. and a ton of other stuff i didn't get, like skyfall being bond's past and having it burn down, or the resurrection thing.

i think the villain dying tends to be anti-climactic because the villains are just tools used to tell the heroes' story, like silva showing what bond might have become in some alternate universe. in a different kind of film w a different focus, maybe the villain's death would be more poignant.

Visually speaking it was AMAZING

Minor plot holes hold it back from a masterpiece.

Closest Fincher/Kubrick 007 we will see

I think you mean cat and mouse game. And that itself is a literary element of a plot, which means there is a story. You are probably the stupidest nigga on hb. No one will buy your dumbass concords.

i really wonder what nolan would do w bond since it seems like he would only direct a new actor. skyfall really feels like some dark twisted fantasy shit idk how it can be followed

*SPOILERS*

For the most part I enjoyed it. Not as good as Casino Royale, much better than Solace. Some of the pacing was kinda off putting for me though. Bond appearing in the bed/hut of a woman after being shot, TWICE, and floating in a river and no explanation is one example. Show us something, anything, even a small scene of him washing ashore somewhere to rationalize that unless we just assume he's Bond and he deedit, just like Bruce Wayne.

The China scenes also felt really rushed or out of place to me too. The sex trafficked girl I thought would play a bigger part than just an envoy and a death, but I understand her role I suppose. Driving home the point that his job always involves people dying and even those you think you can save end up dying.
