Same here, though in fairness Javier Bardem's take as Silva was extremely campy, though in a good way. Easily the best Bond villain since Sean Bean as 006*.
Also, as far as crazy, impossible gadgets, does it get much crazier than a Glock 18 loaded with DU 9mm?

*Bardem has been the only good Bond villain since Sean Bean.

Ok, I have to take particular umbrage with this.
Setting aside whether you liked Adele's song (and if you didn't, you're a bad person), but if you're trying to show examples of good 007 themes, why "For Your Eyes Only" and not "You Only Live Twice," or "Diamonds are Forever" or "Live and Let Die"?

Or even Dusty Springfield - The Look of Love - YouTube
