I've seen Skyfall. TDKR takes this one, easily.

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

Anybody who has already seen skyfall and happen to saw it at true imax.. how does the digital conversion of the film compare to true imax fliming (70 min of it) of DKR ?

I am debating whether to see skyfall at true imax or not..

I be seeing Skyfall Wednesday. Can't wait.

I'm a huge Batman and Bond fan obviously, so as long as both are good (which I know TDKR was good and I expect Skyfall to be good) all be will be gravy with me.

Can't wait to see the nitpickers try and pick apart Skyfall and whine about what they wish they would have seen in Skyfall now. Lol

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

Meh.

Your opinion isn't surprising, so I take with a grain of salt.

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.

"Fall" vs "Rise". Just put that together

Looking forward to seeing Skyfall, hopefully Friday.

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.
