Topic: Time between QoS and Skyfall (Potential Spoilers)
How much time, and how many missions, have happened in between the two films? is the time difference the same 4 years that the audience has had to wait or is it more? or less?
The Bond of Quantum of Solace is still very much the rebellious new recruit, with it being a direct continuation from Casino Royale (despite the gap in between films). whilst in Skyfall, particularly in the scene in M's house. it appears that Bond has been in this game a long time. being much more world weary and needing to reinvigorate himself.
I really really enjoyed Skyfall and I loved the story it was putting forward but I did find it somewhat Jarring trying to match the rebellious, not fully formed, Bond of CR and QoS to this Jaded, lost his way, Bond of now. with characters, like Silva, saying 'is there any of the old 007 left?' when did we actually see 'the old 007'? meaning that the more Bondlike Bond that he appears to become in the closing scenes of the film is New to us as the audience, but is it new in terms of narrative, was this what Bond was like post QoS and Pre Skyfall that we never saw, or was he still the angry man who needed this bruised ego to realign himself?
