Re: Skyfall vs. TDKR
Skyfall was tremendous. That said, I think the hype is overdoing it. I do not think it is the best Bond film ever or even better than Casino Royale (Craig's best), but it was solid stuff. However, TDKR got to me more in a visceral, epic way. I also found the story and stakes more engrossing.
That said, Javier Bardem and Roger Deakins were astounding in Skyfall. They made that movie. That and the surprise location of the third act. Both are fine films.
