If by "meticulously," you mean missing the excavator, which was the most memorable part of the scene.

The whole problem with Skyfall is that it's full of plot bugs.

Take the shot? Of a guy on a train? Wouldn't "Bond? Can you make sure he stays on the train and we'll have an armed response team ready when he gets to the other end" make more sense? Where's he going to go?

At least in the old days it was the case that Bond would be doing this in an unfriendly place like East Germany, but he's in Turkey on this bit who are a member of NATO, so likely to be willing to give assistance against terrorists.

As much as I love the movie, I have to agree.  The most egregious mistakes being, "let me just plug this super-hacker's laptop right into our network," followed closely by, "let's escape into the night, but wave our flashlights all about."

I mentally clocked out during the roof top motorcycle chase.  Once the train scene got on, I had decided the entire movie was just going to be nonsensical shiat which would make Michael Bay feel ashamed.  Seriously, they couldn't even show him having to hotwire the excavator or something? And the bullet-action in those scenes was beyond stupid even for action movies.

I was not proven wrong with the rest of the movie. The most notable bits being 'super best ever computer guy plugs in a laptop to home network', and 'the buggout MI5 station conveniently joined to the Tube/underground/etc. station system without any impenetrable walls.

I love a good hero/villain who 'thinks of everything', or has plans within plans within plans, even a cartoony one like The Joker.  But they couldn't even make that happen. They just magic hand waved it away.

Yeah, there are others to choose from.  The point is that it is a GORGEOUSLY shot movie with terrific atmosphere, great characters and an unforgivable number of plot problems.

Why do you put Bond in quotes? Are you one of those people who wants to believe that the current series is a continuation of the old series, and that the name "James Bond" is a code-name rather than a real name?

Casino Royale was a reboot of the Bond series. The old series was ALL supposed to be the same guy, but starting with Casino Royale, they reset everything. James Bond is actually a guy named James Bond; He's not a guy who takes on the Bond name after the older "Bond" retires.

In the old series, they really stretched out his life, but the general theory is that he was the same guy from Connery to Brosnan, but due to cosmetic surgery, physical enhancements, and other things (basically making him a sort of super soldier) he was able to be active for more than four decades. There's no doubt, however, that the Bond played by Moore was the same guy as the Bond played by Connery, as were the others. They have common experiences, memories, mementos, etc.

Of course, all this excludes the other versions of Casino Royale (the spoof, the TV version, etc.)

And Never Say Never Again is not an official Bond film, so that's also a different stand-alone Bond.

Well, that and the whole "super bad guy gets kidnapped so he can execute elaborate, unlikely plan" schtick is really tired at this point. I already saw The Dark Knight, I didn't need to see it again in Skyfall and again in Star Trek Into Darkness.

I wanted to try out the mission playlists in GTAO, but never seem to be able to find anyone hosting any.  I had a crew, but I'm pretty sure it was some kid's high school classmates, and they moved on.

I've not seen STID, but I'd really like someone to do it for a good reason rather than just so two characters can meet. The one in Skyfall makes no sense at all. If he just wanted to shoot M (which he does soon after), why not just arrive in a boat in the UK and shoot her?

Perhaps the biggest plot hole of them all:

HOW THE HELL DID BOND NOT DIE AFTER BEING SHOT OFF A TRAIN, FALLING HUNDREDS OF FEET INTO COLD WATER?!?

I'll admit there are more Bond films out there that I have not seen compared to those I have, but are there any where he just walks away from a fatal blow like that?

I believe the angle they were going for was 'heroic wound (trope) and hypothermic water cryogenic freezing preserved him till help could find him'.

I mean, he's clearly a god among men, he NEVER REMOVED THE BULLET FRAGMENTS. Oh wait, he did. He pulled them out himself. With a leatherman. And they were DU. A god damned farking anti material rifle round. That failed to go through his shoulder, then on into the next county, 3 buildings, and an old ladies guide dog, and also failed to utterly destroy his shoulder joints.  It just lodged in his skin, apparently.

Such a god awful movie. Normally I can overlook plot holes but I swear to zombie tits they did this one intentionally shiat.

Agreed.

But Timothy Dalton being the former James Bond left to die would have been pretty epic. It also backed up the theory that every James Bond was a different person. Makes Q and the agency look a little more morally unethical too.

*And* going over a waterfall and landing on the rocks below it. You'd think that, alone, would do quite a number on Commander Bond, but it appears he is an Immortal, and require beheading to kill him

Judi Densch's M is one of the most cold-hearted ruthless biatches ever seen in the Bond movies (even if some of her actions don't make much sense from an operational security standpoint). I mean, the villain in Skyfall was shopped to the Chinese with hardly a second thought by her, when she could have gotten rid of him cleaner (and present less of a security risk) by having a Double-O bust a cap in his ass and make it look like one of the Tongs did it.
