Skyfall/Spectre Poll

edited February 2016 in Bond Movies Posts: 3,236
We've discussed the last two Bond films quite a bit since their release, as one might expect, and there's been some discussion of a divide between fans. It seems that one set of fans likes Skyfall and doesn't like Spectre, and another set feels just the opposite. I wanted to put that to the test.

Fellow members of MI6, do you like Skyfall and not Spectre? Do you like Spectre but not Skyfall? Like them both pretty well? Don't like either? Let us know, and explain why if you like!

I'll keep track in this post, and speaking for myself, I liked Skyfall very much, but not Spectre.

Liked Skyfall, not Spectre: 6
Liked Spectre, not Skyfall: 2
Liked them both: 5
Didn't like either: 1

    Liked them both. Both incredibly different, and brilliant in their own merits.

    Liked SKYFALL, not SPECTRE. I think that I've explained myself enough on these boards. But it comes down to the fact that I had fun with the former, not with the later.

    Spectre. By far.

    For me, that is.

    Good man.

    I liked them both. Both are flawed (SP almost catastrophically so) but it it doesn't detract from the fact that the Craig era has certainly raised the bar in overall quality even if it has lowered it in some areas.

    But whichever way you cut it they both represent a step up from the embarrassments of clunkers such as DAF, TMWTGG and DAD.

    Liked Skyfall immediately. Very clear love for this film from the get go, like with CR. Grabbed me by the you know what and didn't let go. None of its flaws bother me although I notice them as well.

    Honestly didn't like Spectre at all in the theatre but really wanted to. Can now respect it and appreciate certain elements of it (especially production) much more, but will never love it, in comparison to the majority of Bond films. This is not about brothers, or lovers or whatever. It's just a 'by the numbers', passionless, predictable, 'been there done it better many times before' rather dull entry, for me.

    So SF for the clear and decisive win imho.

    Adding my vote along with the two posters right above mine.

    I like them both for different reasons. Skyfall is more well made with a more dark and emotional storyline, with a better villain. Spectre however is more fun to watch and a great modern interpretation of the Bond classics, especially from the Connery era. But they are both great Bond films!

    It looks like Skyfall is way ahead here, which is interesting. Only three respondents reported not liking SF, while seven didn't like SP. And remember, it's not just a question of which you liked more. Even if you definitely preferred one, you can still pick "liked both."

    Indeed. Where have all the SF haters gone all of a sudden?
  • I liked them both, although I do prefer SF by a relatively wide margin.

    Disliked both, though the first hour or so of Skyfall was decent, it fell of a cliff when Silva showed up.
