Speaking of Shakespeare, an interesting note...Skyfall gathered three Hamlets together, not just in one film, but into a single scene. When Mallory discovers Q and Tanner are laying a trap for Silva, you've got a scene chock full of Hamlets. Fiennes portrayed Hamlet on the stage in 1995, Ben Wishaw in 2004, and Rory Kinnear in 2010.
Very nicely put, sir! And may I add that the whole Tennyson sequence gave me chills of triumph... for a variety of reasons, some very personal.

I'm pretty sure that Finney has had a whack at the role, too. Just wasn't in the scene.

Uh, yeah, I was referring to Ben Wishaw as Harry Potter's older brother.

Maybe I should've said Paddington?

And Adele is rubbish.

The cast really is fantastic. Along with Mendes, Deakins, and Baird, they make the poor script forgivable.
