Re: Skyfall vs. TDKR
I saw Skyfall yesterday.
I preferred TDKR to Skyfall. However I was never a big fan of Bond on film or in the novels. Overall, I thought Skyfall surpassed The Dark Knight when it came to the villain. After his introduction and capture by MI6, Silva was either on par, or had surpassed, the Joker as a villain. I would love to see Silva's actor as the Joker in the next franchise.
"..the mere intimation that there might be more to a heroic narrative than the heroes are the Good Guys, the villains are Bad Guys and the heroes should Win a rousing Victory appears to be in itself such an offensive contention that it arouses a kind of defensive knee-jerk hysteria just by surfacing." - Richard K Morgan
