Pretty much this. I love Quantum. I think over the years, Quantum will get a reevaluation. It's a necessary film. Skyfall's fantastic but you'd be either an idiot or blind to not see the influences of the Dark Knight all of the film. It's almost blatant.
I can honestly say that since '99, the Dark Knight Trilogy and this Bond trilogy of Royale, Quantum, and Skyfall
are probably the best cinematic trilogies we've had in the contemporary era.
I'd put the Bourne Trilogy (screw Legacy)
