Just seen Skyfall tonight, so I'm finally allowing myself into the spoilers forum. One word describes what I saw - epic.
Anyway, onto the 'nods'...and I think it's worth counting the moments that are obvious nods, along with the not-so-obvious.
Bond stepping on the Komodo Dragon to get out of the pit in the Shanghai casino - Bond stepping on the crocodiles to escape to safety in LALD.
The burly oriental guy who gets attacked by the Komodo Dragon - reminded me of Oddjob.
Bond to Q: 'You must be joking' - Connery's same line from GF.
The DB5 and the gadgets - obvious reference to the same car in GF. What I really liked about this 'nod' was when Bond and M drive out of the lock-up in Skyfall. It can't only be me that thought it looked remarkably like Connery driving the DB5 around Goldfinger's Swiss estate. The narrow lanes, the lighting - awesome!
The palm print coded PPK - similar gadget used on Bond's sniper rifle in LTK.
The older couple standing on the underground station platform that make the quip after Bond jumps onto the rear of the train - this sort of quip is found is almost every Moore Bond film.
Bond breaking the ice while standing on the lake towards the end of the film - reminded me of Brosnan's Bond breaking the ice and then diving under in DAD.
I'm sure that there are more, but my head is buzzing after seeing Skyfall earlier tonight! I look forward to reading what the rest of you think.
