Soon it will be called "overrated" by fanboys who want to stand out.

Happens to all the critically and financially successful films. Avatar, Titanic, Avengers, Dark Knight

I just watched this movie a second time last night..what an amazing movie. This isn't just your average Bond film. Behind TDKR and The Avengers, this was my 3rd favorite movie of the year. However, I think it will have more longevity many years down the road on my favorite movies of all time.

Not to mention, when he opens up the storage garage to reveal the DB5 -- I haven't been that in love with a car since Batman Begins and the tumbler.
