Post Bond 24
Spectre - out next November 6th

Good looking cast too, including the guy who plays Moriarty in BBC's Sherlock

Post Re: Bond 24
Briefly stopping by this thread to let the general population know that next week's episode of 'How Did This Get Made?' is dedicated entirely to A View To a Kill. For those who don't know, this podcast (check iTunes or Earwolf.com to listen or download) is a light attempt to catalog all the things wrong with a particular movie. It's not highbrow whatsoever (the three people involved with the show have very limited comprehension and typically just tear the movie apart) but it does have some potential to be very funny.

Now, without further interruption, your Bond 24 thread resumes its regularly scheduled content.

Even Roger Moore asked that same question

Yeah, buddy! RoMo not a fan, beating comedians to the punch!

I've never seen the film but as it's available on Netflix at the moment, now's the time. Seems like a small risk. If it turns out to be unwatchable, I'll find something else to do. I mean, what does RoMo know, anyway?

I wouldn't say it's unwatchable. Chris Walken camps it up.

But it does have Moore (who was never an athlete and prepared for Bond films by playing Golf and drinking gin and tonics) at the tender age of 56. And Grace Jones shoulder pressing grown men.

Knock yourself out. You might have a blast

Sam Mendes: Spectre will 'be everything you would expect from a Bond movie'

Quote:
Director Sam Mendes said: “Spectre will be everything you would expect from a Bond movie but, in terms of the last movie, maybe a little more variety, maybe a little more mischief”.

More variety? Well yeah, because Skyfall only had one girl and her role was insubstantial. And while I thought Patrice was pretty cool, Mr. Hinx will no doubt call more attention to himself as a potentially Jaws-esque henchman. Plus I'd bet Bond's new car will be fitted with a gadget or two.

Well that's good because Skyfall delivered exactly nothing I expected from a Bond movie. Did he actually say "Bond" or did he mispronounce "Bourne"?

I'm pretty sure Moneypenny was regarded as that movie's primary Bond girl (seeing as we don't learn her identity until the end). :| But, yeah, like Caterina Murino in "Casino Royale" and Gemma Arterton in "Quantum of Solace" before her, Bérénice Marlohe was largely wasted as the secondary Bond girl.

But on a more serious note, perhaps the most damaging document leak in the Sony hack this weekend is an early version of the screenplay for the highly anticipated upcoming James Bond film Spectre.

Eon Productions, the company behind the Bond series, released a statement Saturday, threatening those who attempt to distribute it.

"Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Danjaq LLC will take all necessary steps to protect their rights against the persons who stole the screenplay, and against anyone who makes infringing uses of it or attempts to take commercial advantage of confidential property it knows to be stolen," the producers wrote.

Yeah, I was really bummed out to hear about this. With this leak on top of 10 range rovers apparently being stolen from set (WTF?), if I were Sam Mendes I'd be threatening to quit right about now :| . Sounds like the producers aren't giving Mendes and Craig the security and support that they deserve. And these studio execs clearly aren't being as careful or as professional as they should be. Scripts for tentpole blockbusters should be written on a typewriter, never gaining any exposure to the internet on any level. Seriously. And yeah, a lot of the leaked emails are quite unprofessional and make the execs seem like kids.

Oh well, I'm avoiding spoilers and retaining confidence that Spectre will be a great Bond movie.

You don't need a typewriter, you just need a computer that has never been hooked up to the internet(called an air-gapped computer usually).

I have to say i'm pretty disgusted with that jerk that called Angelina Jolie a spoiled brat, (especially considering how much she's done for charity, i'll bet he never gave a single cent of his own money to anyone other then himself). The comments about Obama loving "slave" films were also cringe-worthy(and ironic considering that Sony is more prolific with films featuring black actors then any other studio) and that person should be embarrassed.

You know, my mates laughed at me for years because I've always had one permanently offline computer that I save private documents to.

These suckers also thought the cloud was actually a fucking cloud. I call it a SEC (someone else's computer).

I worry about the lack of common sense people display these days. And data security is an excellent canary down the mine
