  1. James Bond #25

    Interesting read. And yes, such was Barry's and a-ha's inability to get along that they put a different version of Daylights on their next album -
  2. James Bond #25

    TND's Wiki page says Babs Broccoli chose Arnold on Barry's recommendation.

    Tomb Raider - halfway-decent videogame adaptation shocker! Certainly considerably better than the Jolie flicks ... a pretty enjoyable action-adventure that thankfully doesn't go TOO far down the 'gritty 'n' dark' path that I found off-putting in the reboot game that this is based on.
  4. James Bond #25

    It would be nice to have Arnold back ... Newman is fine, but I don't remember much from his Bond scores. On a side note, still wish Barry had been tempted back for Goldeneye.
  5. Shameless plug for my work friend's debut novel ...

    Turns out that the author still has access to their manuscript after they've submitted it to Amazon, so mistakes can be rectified if needs be ... if the author can be bothered, which in this case it appears they can't.

    Mom And Dad - what better movie to see on Mother's Day than one in which a mysterious TV signal causes parents to turn murderously on their own offspring? This deliciously dark suburban satire proves to be a rare half-decent contemporary project for Nic Cage.
  7. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Clerks - a 'cult classic' late-night screening at our local arthouse cinema, so nice to see this on the big screen with a couple of ales. Kevin Smith's no-budget directorial debut is still a very funny film.
  8. Shameless plug for my work friend's debut novel ...

    Current Amazon 'bestseller ranking' of the paperback edition - 1,741,866 And of the Kindle edition - 984,594 I'm guessing she didn't. We're no longer friends ... long story short, turns out my giving up on the book after 100 pages wasn't OK with her after all.

    10 Cloverfield Lane - tense, claustrophobic thriller that expands into sci-fi towards the end to tie it in with the first Cloverfield flick. Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Goodman are both excellent, Goodman particularly so.

    Game Night - admittedly the absurdities pile up as this comedy-thriller unfolds, but if you're prepared to roll with them it's pretty fun.
  11. R.I.P. Lewis Gilbert

    YOLT had many memorable moments, and Spy is one of my favourite Moore Bonds. R.I.P. indeed.
  12. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Newer films)

    I, Tonya - very good, blackly funny drama about the infamous Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan case. Margot Robbie and Allison Janney are both excellent as Tonya and her monstrous mother Lavona, those Oscars are a distinct possibility.
  13. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Best thing about it is the nudity by that gorgeous Latina actress who was in that Michael J Fox sitcom Spin City.
  14. Who is the sexiest young celebrity these days?

    Ah, so THAT'S what happened to Jameela! She was a TV presenter in the UK at one time. Absolutely gorgeous.
  15. The Doctor Who Thread.....

    Hm. I loved Eleven's 'I Am The Doctor' theme, very hummable!
