I'll take it to the pm's since as I already said I don't want to take this tread more off topic.

Yeah guys, take the TDK arguing to the Batboards. If Kedrell doesn't like it, then he doesn't like it. Not everyone is going to like TDK.

Anyway, I can't wait for the Blu-ray. I'm getting the UK steelbook!

The issue with the explosives in TDK isn't so much that Joker was able to do it...there are ways he could have gotten lots of barrels of explosives aboard a ferry, via corruption, or...whatever.

The issue is the context of the scene: The National Guard and Gotham Police are, for the purpose of public safety, moving Gothamites, under a fairly direct threat of terror, to safety via the ferries.

And these people whose job it is to establish the safety of the Gothamites...they didn't bother to check the boats to establish basic safety? To, I don't know, in the midst of this intense terror scenario, bother to make sure the boats weren't chock full of rather obviously placed explosives? Its a bit mind boggling, and could have been avoided with a more subtle type of explosive, but no, we did to see barrels and barrels.

As far as I can tell, SKYFALL didn't have anything like that in it.

Not going to go into the TDK Debate but I just wanted to say: you need to watch more movies if TDK is one of the worst you've seen in the last 10 years. I could name at least 50 worse from 2009-2012 alone.

As for Skyfall, Silva's plan never really bothered me. I'm able to suspend my disbelief to the point that he had the bombs there just to cover his escape and didn't expect Bond to show up and just ran with it.

Is this the Skyfall thread or the Kedrell vs everyone thread?

Hey, I stopped talking about that film which I'll not name. This should be Skyfall.

I would have liked deleted scenes but this list of special features looks quite good really. I enjoyed the movie and can't wait to own it.

I too, would have liked deleted scenes. Also, isolated score feature.


But alas, no.

Either way, can't wait to pick this badboy up.

So looking forward to getting this on Blu-Ray. Skyfall was the best Bond film I have ever seen. Hard to see how they will top this with the next one.

But one thing I am certain of, Daniel Craig will do a great job.

Though very cool, it is annoying to see the smoke blown on from off screen.

I assume that's meant to be an enemy bullet getting close.

Obviously. They do hit objects like the floor and send off debris, though. I agree it doesn't look the best but that's what it's got to be.

I do think you are right because you can see debris coming up. Tho, that could be a part of the squib. Who knows. It's an awkward thing all together.

Just watched the Everything or Nothing on netflix. Really phenomenal documentary. And I must say Timothy Dalton looks good now. Also love how Pierce basically hates his last 3.

It's on netflix? Awesome.

I don't know why everyone hates TWINE and TND...I think they're okay. Definitely not upper class Bond, but it's not as bad as DAD, or Moonraker.
