** 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.

** {{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.
