Default Skyfall vs. TDKR

Hate to say it, but for me, Skyfall beats this movie wholeheartedly.

Only one more week and I will know if it does or not.

Doubt it would, imo, because TDKR was even better than the Avengers, so I'd have to say Skyfall would have to move me a whole lot more than TDKR.

I've seen Skyfall and it is a terrific movie. I definitely enjoyed it more than TDKR, and I'm a bigger Batman fan than I am a Bond fan.

One area I think TDKR trumps Skyfall in was a strong leading lady. Hathaway's Selina was much better than Naomi Gaines and Bérénice Marlohe's characters.

Haven't seen Skyfall yet, but yeah, Harris and Marlohe combined don't beat one HathCat.

Completely right.

M's arc was the heart of the story. But Skyfall's weakness is Bond's arc. I never felt much for Bond throughout, except for the beginning

I like Batman too and even if I didn't like TDKR (which I didn't) I would never say that a Bond film is better, no way never gonna happen. Sure I might like Skyfall as I did CR and QoS but I wouldn't rank them among my ten best lists.

Well that's the case with every Bond girl, they're only hired for their looks not acting, just look at whatsherface from Casino Royale and whatsherface from QoS.

What a terrific attitude to have
What if the Bond film was genuinely better, would you deny it simply because you've already made up your mind?

You didn't like TDKR, but you liked those Bond movies. If you can't admit a Bond movie is better than a Batman movie when you feel it is, then how can you expect your opinions to be taken seriously? Is it just some blind allegiance to being a Batman fan?

I'd rate both of those women far above Rachel Dawes in the acting, looks, and characterization department.

If you truly like Skyfall more, why would you hate to say it?

Batman and Bond aren't in some sort of contest.

Haven't seen it yet, but I found Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace underwhelming so I doubt it.

Can't wait for Skyfall.

If you really enjoyed it more than TDKR, there is no shame in that.

Man...there must be a vocal minority that really enjoyed Quantum of Solace. I hear so much bashing but I really loved it.

QOS doesn't deserve the bad rep it's got, IMO. Sure it fall short compared to Casino Royale, but it's still a good movie. Not even a contender for worst Bond movie.

Quite ironically I thought it was good (considering I just said I tend to be kind of 'meh' on anything Bond), I just thought it deviated so much from the formula I could see why it alienated people so. This Skyfall seems more in line with what people expect from a Bond film.

Casino Royale is one of my favorite films, ever. Not Bond film, just film. QoS wasn't as bad to me as it was, seemingly, to everybody else, so I'm just as excited for Skyfall as I was for TDKR. Super excited!

Yup. So naturally it's gonna lose out to a better flick like Skyfall.

To you, yes, lol. Which is what I just said, haha.

But for me, who LOVED TDKR, I will just have to see if I enjoyed Skyfall more. Heck, there was one time where I thought I would have enjoyed Avengers much more, but I didn't.

Plus, if it's true when people say Skyfall takes Bond back to the kind of film Casino Royale was, then I don't know...imo, my favorite Daniel Craig Bond film is still Quantum of Solace, so I'll shall see Friday night.
