    Sorry, that was a reading comprehension and writing fail.

    Okay, well fair enough. Bond is certainly not for everybody and there are plenty other films out this year to tide you over.

    Although no Indiana Jones? That one is going to stump me for some time!

    I didn't think much of the Bourne films either. As films they were certainly no worse than your average 007 flick, but those are nothing as standalone pieces either, what makes them interesting is their place in the broader mythos and cultural and filmic tapestry.

    Let's hope it strikes the right balance between Casino and Solace.

    Yes, I watched them since we last spoke. Casino was excellent, and the eyes, the eyes! Oh how they haunt me still. Solace felt like a more traditional action movie and kinda moved away from the precedent Casino was trying to establish.

    My favourite Bond film is that one with Daniel Craig where he parachutes out of a helicopter with the Queen... which one is that again?

    I like the James Bond as codename theory, and I think you can make sense of it even with the references between films with different actors. Example: Lazenby's Bond falls in love and marries, but because of his attachment to the Bond name his wife is killed by Blofield (if I remember correctly). This understandably throws him into a bit of a funk, so he retires early. Moore's Bond leaves flowers on the grave of Lazenby's wife as a sort of atonement for the hurt that the Bond name can cause, and as recognition of Lazenby's sacrifice and his wife's.

    TWINE was a really good Bond film, and one of my favourites from when I was younger, but for some reason whenever I'm thinking about Bond films (happens more often than I care to admit) it is always forgotten. I always think of the TWINE N64 game instead (which, in spite of not being made by Rare, was actually pretty good, from memory).

    Blond Bardem was the only way they could make him even creepier than Chigurh.

    Trailers do that a more and more. It's frustrating. :\

    Doesn't bother me much in action films like this, I suppose.
    I think of [the Internet] as a grisly raw steak laid out on a porcelain benchtop in the sun, covered in chocolate hazelnut sauce. In the background plays Stardustís Music Sounds Better With You. Thereís lots of fog. --tomeoftom

    You ruined his point by putting it in context thatís cheating -bull0

    I just have to point out that this is actually a real thing, and has been for quite a while. The Russians developed this for some of their choppers during the Cold War, sometime in the 70's. The US experimented with it too, but I don't think it ever got used in a production aircraft. From what I understand, the way that it works is that when the pilot pulls the lever it sets off explosive charges that blow the rotor blades off of the chopper, and then launches the seat a couple seconds later so that the detached blades have time to get clear.

    Also, that new trailer looks great. I've never been a super-huge Bond fan, but I've enjoyed the Connery movies since I was a kid and I think Roger Moore did a decent job of it. I wasn't much of a fan of Brosnan, who was the Bond for most of my life, but I'll be honest that I never actually cared to sit down and watch all of his movies. I do like Craig's Bond though, so I'm looking forward to Skyfall.

    But how are they going to top the villain from QoS and his nefarious scheme to corner the water market!?

    Looking good, anyway.

    Agreed. I think they could of done with less reveals there tbh.
