malapropism: (noooo my brain)

What you see, I see~

Well, I saw Skyfall last night, and having thought it over since, I've figured it out! There is one very simple problem with this movie. The problem is that it's under the delusion of being a James Bond film. It is not! Bond's role is not terribly integral to this film in the end beyond providing Raoul Silva with a "heroic good" parallel. And in truth, Bond is not even heroic good. He is the same kind of monster that Silva is, but better content with being leashed. Maybe he might have been otherwise if they were still treating Bond as a character and not restoring him to a male power fantasy, but that was not the case.

In fact, Skyfall should have been and is M's movie.

Spoilers below the cut. Probably! )

In conclusion, Skyfall!
