Fade2black: Vexed Thespian: Haliburton Cummings: Vexed Thespian: Hollywood Lieberals are so desperate to steal the election that they are outsourcing premiers of one of America's greatest film franchises (behind harry potter) So the demorats aren't too distracted from not having a job to vote for obummer instead of seeing this film.

wow.
0/10

your parents have anything that made it out of the incubator?

oh come on, that was at least a 3/10... I used "lieberals" AND "demorats"

No different than being a plant at a right wing rally then eh? Least it's ok when you guys do it.

Although in all fairness, some of us actually enjoy our movie threads without someone derpy enough; and frothing at the mouth enough, to warrant sticking politics in a Bond film discussion. You must be a hit at your Starbucks get-togethers.


I think he deserves at least a 6/10 for the number of idiots who can't seem to understand sarcasm.

As some one who has already seen this film, i can safely say it celebrates 50 years of bond in style... There is at least 1 reference in the film to each of the other bonds... if you can spot them all you win a prize as ultimate bond geek...

toetag: every time I see a headline about this, i think there is a new Skyrim add-on or expansion. I keep forgetting it's a movie.

I haven't even played Skyrim in months.


I feel the same way

GRCooper: KrispyKritter: I remember when Bond movies were worth watching. Over and over.

Yeah. And then Casino Royale was released and the older ones were suddenly unwatchable.


This, clearly. ^^^^

Right, three hours of a humorless Jason Bourne wannabe and an instructional video on Texas Hold'em. I'll take Brosnan's Bond movies (except Die Another Day) any day.

Sgt Oddball: I'll be right there in line with both of you (figuratively I guess, locations and all that). Hope they buy my "really sick today" call at work.


Skyfall is a perfectly justifiable excuse!

Possibly.

Maybe.

Probably not.

STILL!



Sgt Oddball: Good to see you again, TMLO, been wonderin' where ya were.


Thanks, man, and good to see you too!

Needed to take a break and whatnot. Break's over, more or less.


Spanky_McFarksalot: fark that, Quantum of Solace was a great flick.


I'm not a fan of QoS, but I'm glad you dig it, anyways.


DeathByGeekSquad: TMLO? I miss your TDK images....


Heh, thanks for the kind words!

(I should get around to more TDKR images, I guess.)


DeathByGeekSquad: Can't wait to see Skyfall, should be an excellent time.


You tell me that there's a James Bond movie at the theater, I'm THERE. It's that simple.

And this should be pretty damn good.

Mugato: an instructional video on Texas Hold'em


A really bad one. That, to me, was the WORST part of the movie. They should have stuck with baccarat.

Bond movies are the only time I make it a point to see in theaters as opposed to waiting for cable, Netflix, Dvd ad nauseum. I make no such claim for any other genre, series, or actor/actress. Only Bond.

James Bond.

No. Not at all. It's like comparing apples and oranges. CR was a reboot. I accept that. The older movies still stand.

Personally, I'm looking forward to Skyfall. I like the theme song. I've liked all the trailers and commercials I've seen. I've liked all the plot synopses I've read. Even some spoilers I've read don't bother me. It looks like it will be a great ride.

Mmhmm.

A James Bond film is *always* worth a trip to the movie theater, regardless of how the film actually turns out.

I know DAD gets a ton of shiat, but frankly, I give it the Godfather Part 3 pass, i.e., it doesn't stand up to previous incarnations of Bond, but is still better than most of the crap we get from the movie industry.

Fair enough.

It gets points for John Cleese and the Thunderball jetpack.

Halle Berry and Rosamund Pike don't hurt matters, either.

I saw DAD in the theater 3 times because I just couldn't understand it and kept trying. Granted I was drunk each time but still. No one goes to a Bond film expecting an accurate account of the inner workings of British intelligence but why did the Korean guy turn into a white guy? Who then put on a power suit? And the invisible car...and Madonna. It started out strong, Bond getting captured and tortured for months, that was cool. But the Icarus weapon? And all they're using it for is to destroy mines?

The Bond movies walk a fine line between the believable and the absurd. I think it's called the Moonraker line. And DAD violated it.

That's the thing. The foundations were there for that to be a great film. Specifically, I mean the torture opening you refer to, which took the whole "Bond is injured" premise of The World is Not Enough to an interesting new extreme.

But... they squandered that.

And just what the hell was Michael Madsen doing, anyway?

*snert*

Good way of putting that, the Moonraker line. That about sounds right.

Bond's psychological damage was touched upon in GoldenEye but yeah, that could be addressed more. Michael Madsen did dick in that movie. It looks like they wrote a bigger part for him but cut most of it.

That was the great thing about the Brosnan era, they toyed around with the mythology and image of James Bond instead of having it all seem like an out-and-out rehash of what was done before.


Mugato: Michael Madsen did dick in that movie. It looks like they wrote a bigger part for him but cut most of it.


I don't understand the point to having him there at all. The whole thing seemed like he hilariously phoned it in from the comfort of his home (with a green screen).

The last season of 24 treated him with more dignity than that.
