Added DiffLines:

* ChaoticEvil: Raoul Silva fluctuates between being a giggling goofball and a dangerous murderer with little provocation. Sometimes he's both. His messed up psyche has some justification, given that he [[spoiler:was betrayed by M and survived a suicide by cyanide tablet]].

* HarsherInHindsight: Silva's hacking attacks on MI6, using skull imagery and insulting language while completely taking over the organization's computer systems and releasing classified information on agents, call to mind the massive hack attack on the film's distributor, Sony Pictures, that crippled the company in late 2014 and led to the release of a large number of private and compromising documents, including many related to ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', the follow-up to ''Skyfall''.

*** After the explosion at MI-6, the news reports "a terrorist attack in the heart of London, leaving 6 dead and many more injured". In March 2017, a terrorist attack in Westminster (just two bridges further) also claimed the lives of 6 (including the perpetrator) and left many more injured.

** Bond's response to Silva's seduction. Is Bond bisexual or at least had experimented with it in the past? Or is he just playing it cool to throw Silva off?

* FreudWasRight: The film has plenty of {{Freudian Excuse}}s, on both the villainous ''and'' heroic sides.

* UnfortunateImplications: Bond's seduction of Severine. Mendes likely never intended to have it interpreted as such but, given Severine's [[SexSlave background]], there's a strong possibility that when Bond initiated sex she may have felt like she had no choice in the matter. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmoIDKqfY44 Even]] CinemaSins hangs a lampshade on the discomfort.

* AngstWhatAngst: Bond doesn't seem too concerned [[spoiler:when Severine is shot, despite saying he'd protect her. Well, except for the part where he mercilessly slaughtered Silva's men immediately after, but even that's ambiguous.]]

* SpiritualAdaptation: According to Website/{{Cracked}}'s [[http://www.cracked.com/article_24343_6-famous-films-that-are-secret-remakes-kids-movies.html article]], ''Skyfall'' is an adaptation of ''Film/HomeAlone''... which, in turn, is also a SpiritualAdaptation of ''Film/DieHard''. In other words: a spiritual adaptation within a spiritual adaptation.
