Nice to hear.

I don't have any sentimentality for the Bond series other than what subjectively feels cool/right to me, so that won't be a factor for me-- I like the mood/feel of the series, but I've never seen any that really got through to me (including CR). So I might be interested to see it on feel/look alone.

I feel like I can interpret the TDK comment as something that I've felt before about other things that have nothing to do with TDK too, and it's something that could not turn me off more. I have no idea if these guys are talking about the same thing, though.

I kind of felt that way about the finale of Breaking Bad season 4. I don't know how to describe it-- there's this sensibility that TDK basically patented where cheesily scheme-related wannabe-badass moments escalate in a certain way and that's supposed to be the main appeal of it. That may not have anything to do with what they're talking about, but it rang seriously negative buzz-kill alarm bells for me.
