I don't understand why Skyfall is so extremely successful. I mean it's good, but not that good.
I could think of a number of reasons.

1.>Bond is one of the most succesful film franchises.
2.>It's the 50th Anniversary of the film franchise
3.>It's not like there is a huge amount of competition in terms of the major blockbusters.
4.>It's been hea vily advertised.
5.>It's generally received very good/excellent reviews. (which can actually lower peoples view on the film. After all if you go to see a film with rubbish reviews all you can be is suprised if it's better than the reviews, conversly you might be dissapointed with a film that has rave reviews because expectations are higher)
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
