Oh yeah I saw that, I just rated the last movie I had watched last night.

I saw Flight and people go into that movie with the wrong expectations if they don't read up on it. It's not really about the crash and what not, but more about after and how Denzel's character deals with his alcoholism. As an alcoholic myself, I found the movie depressing as hell and the ending felt like a cop out. 7/10

Source Code - 9 / 10

Wreck It Ralph - 9 / 10

Flight - 7 / 10

Skyfall - I want to give it a good ranking, but it's a BLATANT rip off from The Dark Knight ... in more ways than one.

Skyfall 9/10

Great movie, much better than the second one and it's up there with Casino Royale.

I mean the director stated it was an inspiration.

But god damn, certain scenes, characters, motivations were like totally ripped off. The introduction of the villian, was a blatant copy of the Joker menacing debut during the ghetto mob meeting in the kitchen in TDK.

Even parts of Hans Zimmer's Batman score were ripped off ...

And then they made Bond a wealthy orphan heir to a mansion? Really?

To be fair, Christopher Nolan said Bond movies were inspirations to his Dark Knight saga.

The most obvious scene borrowed from Dark Knight though was the villain intentionally getting caught with a plan already in place to get out.

He had moments of it ...

But that is in the Joker's nature to do stuff like that.

There is influence, I feel like there was damn near direct rip offs in this movie.

Even so, I'd rather have a Dark Knight rip off than the crap fest that was Quantum of Solace.

I agree with this ... it was way better than that 'turd. Casino Royale still GOAT Bond movie.

I actually liked Quantum more (still think it's not a great Bond film) even though it was poorly made in comparison to Skyfall. At least Quantum just had a pissed off Bond and a kind of lame villain. Skyfall was FILLED with plotholes and unresolved plots.

The best part of Skyfall was the cinematography and that's not at all a slight on the movie, I thought it was excellent, in the 8 range. Roger Deakins is a f*cking genius though.

The RZA owes me money and a notorized apology for the Man with the Iron Fists

I didn't hate QoS either but I'm a bit of a Bond fanatic so maybe some bias there. It wasn't great but there have been several worse Bonds over the years. Die Another Day, View to a Kill, Man with the Golden Gun, Diamonds are Forever off the top of my head all clearly worse than Quantum IMO. I should probably watch it again though.
