Re: Skyfall vs. TDKR
In my opinion some of those are really reaching. Bond has had a sense of humor dating back to Sean Connery's era.
Bond has always been an orphan, and it's not the first time Craig's movies mentioned that. It was mentioned in Casino Royale, too.
A hot set of wheels.....the Aston Martin DB5 first showed up in Goldfinger in 1964, complete with all the gadgets. It was in Casino Royale, too.
Yes, I remember the villain from Casino Royale. LeChirffe was a great villain.
End with a wink at the future; Bond tracking down Mr. White and shooting him in the leg was the cliffhanger which led into Quantum of Solace.
Pulse pounding opening; I can count on one hand the number of Bond movies that didn't open with some kind of big or exciting action sequence.
