Re: Skyfall vs. TDKR
There is a difference between the method both the directors approached their respective movies, in case of TDKR, Nolan wanted to end Batman's journey, he wanted his arc to reach some sort of conclusion.
Nolan wanted TDKR to be the last Batman movie, not so with Skyfall, here the director was free to take whatever direction he wanted to, which resulted in different tone of the movie.
So, comparing the two movies is really a silly exercise. (IMO.)
EDIT: Did anyone compare Quantum Of Solace with TDK ? I don't remember any comparisons, so why now ?
