  • Movie Oddities That Make No Sense


    I happen to be one of those people who really loved Skyfall despite all the criticism it received for not being a typical Bond film. However, I noticed a few oddities in this superb film with the main one being Silva s ridiculous plan. It would take us pages to analyze all the steps of his ludicrous plan but we can t help but wonder: Did he really want to kill M or just cry like a baby in front of her for what she did to him? All you needed was a bullet Silva, not all this illogical and unnecessary drama.
