Default Re: Skyfall vs. TDKR

As far as similarities to Nolan's Batfilms go, in particular THE DARK KNIGHT...they were pretty basic and minimal, really limited to one key section of the film, and I think Mendes came out ahead there comparitively. SKYFALL is just a more consistent film than THE DARK KNIGHT RISES or THE DARK KNIGHT (though TDK has enough high points that I wouldn't want to begin deciding which is the better film between SKYFALL and TDK).
Yeah, ********. It's more than just basic and minimal. Skyfall, as much as I really, really like it (third favorite film of the year), is damn near a remake of the Dark Knight. Right down to the story points and the theatricality of the villain....
