  1. I disagree, but I don't think we're going to convince each other. I'm ready to move on from the lumpy-headed, boring blonde guy! I'd probably be more open to another Craig if the last movie wasn't Spectre. But I really do think the series needs another shake up. Actually I'd say the Bond movies have a pretty good record of not going with the flavor of the month. Garbage was an inspired choice with a great song for World Is Not Enough. Chris Cornell was well past his prime popularity. I wouldn't call Jack White a fad, but maybe just because I'm a fan (his Bond song being shitty not withstanding). I think at this point it's pretty clear Adele isn't going anywhere. Yeah, I'd say the only instances of fad, flavor of the month choices in the past 20 years are Sam Smith and Sheryl Crow.
  2. Oh yes, the visual style was easily the best aspect of Skyfall.
  3. It's a comedy classic! My wife and I laugh uncontrollably watching this. I will say it gets best when they actually get to Hogwarts. The names are so good. Dudley being called "Ragtime Roastbeefy" is a favorite.
  4. Who do we think should do the next Bond song? Off the top of my head, I think Lorde could be a good choice.
  5. Crossing my fingers that Yooka-Laylee is actually good. I'm a huge fan of Banjo and even DK64, despite its many flaws.
  6. He should just get used to it, it's not going to stop coming up with new people. (Well, it probably will eventually stop coming up given the continued popularity of these movies and the declining popularity of attending church in the developed world)
  7. The first OMD album after the last good OMD album. They started sucking so quickly.
  8. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wizard_People,_Dear_Reader It's very funny.
  9. You're an exception. Sean Connery? Sure. Maybe. But not Moore. But to each his own, of course. I admit I'm a weirdo when it comes to Bond. Through pure chance Roger Moore movies were the first Bonds I happened upon as a child and was obsessed with them. So to me, Austin Powers is closer to how I prefer a Bond movie than Skyfall.
  10. I understand being pro-euthanasia as a right, but as a hobby? Dark.
  11. Watching Wizard People, Dear Reader again tonight. Easily the 2nd best Harry Potter movie after Azkaban.

    I actually don't yet own LOTR on blu-ray, still just the original EE DVD sets. I haven't bought them specifically because I was waiting on the inevitable box of all 6 movies. This isn't the box set I was waiting for, so I'm not buying it at any price. I can wait!
  13. Also, all you non-Methodists/Baptists/whatever who had never heard it before are heathens! Eternal damnation awaits!
  14. At this point, so many years later, it is always there in the back of my mind when I listen to the soundtracks or watch the movies, but it long ago stopped being a distraction. I think it helps that I vastly prefer where Shore takes that opening melody to where the hymn goes!
  15. I understand Film Night is probably attended by a lot of people who don't see orchestral performances regularly, but I feel like even when I was young I instinctively knew to watch the conductor to know when a piece was really over.
  16. I probably watched all four commentaries for each of the three movies at least 2-3 times each. The LOTR DVDs were just what I put on the TV by default when I were a teenager. Now I did used to fall asleep to the commentaries at that time, but not because I thought they were boring. More like the audio/visual equivalent of a glass of warm milk or whatever.
  17. I agree that it's thematically important and affecting, the idea of going off to preserve your homeland but your homeland being corrupted anyway. But I'd hardly call it the core of the entire story.
  18. Man, I didn't know there was anyone who thought it was essential enough that it needed to be in the movie. I remember at the time, before I saw the movie, assuming they wouldn't be adapting that.
  19. That's not a loose end. Making a conscious decision to not adapt a story line isn't a loose end.
  20. Too bad. I liked her in the role, she was just let down by the writers of both movies.
  21. LOL "So Ryan, you had a busy Summer." "yeaaaah, i was 'merica in 'lympics..." and "It feels so weird to be dry"
  22. I want something, anything new for this franchise. With the foreseeable future being only more mining of TOS nostalgia, I can't take it anymore!
