    Naïve Old Fart got a reaction from TolkienSS in 1975 movie Jeanne Dielman is chosen by critics as the best movie ever made   
    Indeed, and if you believe Rotten Tomatoes, PADDINGTON 2 is the greatest film ever 
    I'm sure it's an admirable film, and not having seen it, I cannot assess it, but I can't seem to think that there's a bit of wokeness going on, here.
    An obscure Belgian film, from 1975? I smell fresh ink, boys

    According to Google Translate, it's:
    INDIANA JONES ET LE CADRAN DU DESTIN.
    My guess is that it refers to a sundial, rather than a telephone dial.

    I started with the JW/Boston Pops album We Wish You a Merry Christmas - I'd gotten the box early this year and gone through all the albums back then, except for this one, which I saved for the Christmas season. Some fun stuff on it! Then I moved on to Die Hard.

    Alternatively, according to OED
     

     
    There’s also the “dial” for changing a radio or television station, as in “don’t touch that dial, we’ll be right back.”
     
    But yeah, a dial as in a timepiece makes sense.  Indy’s old and his time is running out?

    Merchant Ivory have done much better, but A ROOM WITH A VIEW is a great starting point.

    You know how it works in history where historians say, this and that king build this or that castle.
    Same here. Just the king himself is talking.

    I can basically speak the dialogue alongside the characters as I watch Room With a View, huge discovery for me in my late teens.

    Will hopefully catch up with that on BBC Sounds ... finding myself listening to a lot on there lately (a 1968 adap of The Day Of the Triffids, dramatisations of Dan Dare stories and Bulldog Drummond read by Julian Rhind-Tutt, amongst others).

    This is rumour control here are the facts.
    GOLDENEYE is not - NOT  - a bad score. Arguably, it's not a Bondian score, in the strictest sense but so freakin' what? 
    Its greatest strength is that it plays against the film, rather than offering a typical thrill button experience.
    I love GOLDENEYE, both film and score. They go very well, together, and I wouldn't want it rescored by anyone.
