** {{Adele}}'s theme ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeumyOzKqgI Skyfall]]'', which incorporates the James Bond theme and [[{{Foreshadowing}} foreshadows]] numerous events in the movie. It became the first Bond theme to win the Oscar for Best Original Song, said Oscar also being the first for the entire franchise since 1966 when ''Film/{{Thunderball}}'' won Best Visual Effects, and the first for an actual performance and not a technical award.

** Some fans, and [[WebVideo/HonestTrailers Screen Junkies]], have unfavorably compared the use of homemade traps during the showdown at Skyfall mansion to being basically a more serious take on the booby trap sequences in ''Film/HomeAlone''.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Specific mention is made of Mallory [[spoiler: being a captive of the IRA for three months]], but nobody ever draws attention to how [[spoiler: he still serves England and Silva became a FallenHero under similar conditions]].
** Fiennes is returning as [[spoiler: the new M]] for ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', so don't count him out quite yet.
** It's more likely that the comparison was supposed to be between Silva and Bond. Both were sacrificed by M for the sake of a mission. Yet Bond, despite his anger, came back and fought for her (and with her), whereas the embittered Silva plotted her downfall.

* HilariousInHindsight: WordOfGod said that Silva was inspired in part by Hans Landa from ''Film/IngloriousBasterds''. Creator/ChristophWaltz, who played Landa, was later cast as Franz Oberhauser [[spoiler:aka Ernst Stavro Blofeld]], the BigBad of the next film, ''Film/{{Spectre}}''.

** Silva's escape from his cell is pretty amusing after Daniel Craig's cameo in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' as a stormtrooper who falls prey to a JediMindTrick and frees his prisoner.
