  1. Thanks for the leads. I'm sure one of the possibilities will work out. nja
  2. Found a connection in Kenya and decided to appeal to the British constituency of the MB for some info. . . I will be in London from August 15th through the afternoon of the 18th and was interested in what concerts might be happening around then. In this instance, going for the more classical side of things- opera, piano, choral you name it. Any ideas or links? Thanks for any help in this regard.

    I've had a enough of this stupid board and it's moderator . . . just kidding. Actually I'm leaving tomorrow for a three-week overseas journey to Nairobi, Kenya and London on the way back. Take care all. I will miss the MB.
  4. Watching Goldeneye again recently, I was reminded of how different Bonds fit their eras. Sean Connery defined the franchise, but I can't imagine his laid back acting style working as well for the later films. Brosnan actually manages to come across believable as a post Cold-War secret agent while maintaining an element of the British flair. His shrewd intensity actually works well in today's cinematic style. I think he has been just what the franchise needed at this point.
  5. I, for one, could think of better projects for him to be working on.
  6. Close encounter with a T-rex.
  7. It would seem that Brosnan and Connery must not get along or something. I would love to see eveyone get together. Is there not potential for a TV featurette at least?
  8. Hmmm. . . a normal-sized wedding party at $80 bucks a pop, that could add up. Isn't that kind of a funny wedding gift though? No disrespect to your friend, but I would feel funny getting that. Like I lead a boring life or something. :?
  9. I have always wondered if there was a picture of all the Bonds together. Surely they must have Bond reunions or something.
  10. Not sure about extended score editions, but it looks like we'll be waiting until December for the extended (complete) edition of ROTK.
  11. It's also on the main page. A sad day.
  12. Farewell to one of the all-time greats. RIP
  13. The film does drags on at spots. Contemplating Williams' naming of this as his favorite of his own scores, I have always surmised it is for two reasons (besides being masterfully written): 1. The 20th century techniques used in much of the score- perhaps closer than any other score to the style of his concert works. 2. The way in which the score is so tightly integrated with the film and plot line. As THX-TLiJ mentioned, the last scene is brilliantly conceived from a cinematic perspective (even if the basic premise of the film is somewhat dubious from the start).
  14. Ain't that the truth. I pity the poor soul who has to follow Prisoner of Azkaban.
  15. Alexander Nevsky first with CE3K in a close second.
