Default Re: Skyfall vs. TDKR

It is similar in some regards, obviously the biggest being Silva and his tactics. That being said, it wasn't to the extent that I was sitting there counting off bullet points, totally removed from the film. It was an excellent movie, I wouldn't say better necessarily than Casino Royale, but definitely its equal.

was one of the biggest "holy ****!" moments for me at a theater in a long time. It just caught me completely off guard, in a good way.

You already decided you wouldn't like the film before you even saw it.
Been saying this for months, although some of the criticism I agree with, particularly the absence of the Gothamite POV, if you will. But essentially a good portion of the twists and turns of the film were already spelled out by astute fans well in advance. Years even. I think this is why, at least in my experience, the general people who just like Batman but aren't diehards loved TDKR, while some of us, not so much...

Because I don't play for your ******* approval. I play for my own love and enjoyment of the game. And to win. That's what I play for."
