the ending.

I loved it. It's the perfect subversion of the ending of "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" and the use of "we have all the time in the world". With Craig finished, they're basically starting again anyway in the next film. Besides it's the 25th film and they've never done this before. This was the only chance to do it really. Also I'm really fond of on "Her Majesty's Secret Service".

I was thinking the virus thing, was going to be their way of continuing the story... but writing out Swan and his daughter without killing them. It might seem cliched, but for the series them actually killing him off was a surprise.

The only downside though is Sami Malek's villain didn't really have much of a great backstory. What was his motivation? He was the only classic bond era villain in the Craig films. Even more than Blofield. Spectre also came across as a bit of a parody of themselves too.

I still really liked this film though. I'm almost tempted to go see it again, but probably won't.

I do think Craig though has established himself as the best Bond.

I haven't watched a Bond movie since that did after Goldeneye.

Loved those Roger Moore Bond movies when I was a kid.... especially Moonraker.

Maybe I should watch the first Bond movie with this guy before checking it out.

Without spoilers, the Daniel Craig films are basically their own series. You would need to see the films from Casino Royal on to Spectre to follow the plot.

I'm seeing it on Saturday so will keep out of this thread until after that.

Best ever is a big call though..

Casino Royale (Daniel Craig's first film) is great, well worth a watch James. Skyfall is good as well. Quantum of Solace and Spectre not so much.

Maybe I was over excited after just seeing it, but it's much, much, better film than Spectre in every area.

That's all I'm going to say atm.

Use spoiler tags if you have.

Just a reminder that Floyd used to play songs live from multiple classic albums that wouldn't be released for years.

I read in the UK you have to pay 30 times what we currently pay in Scandinavia for electricity in peak hours. Last month I would have gotten a bill for over $ 10,000 just for keeping the lights on.

Sure hmm

First trailer just out.

Weird this wasn't hyped more, it's out in December.

I have to say I'm not that interested based on the trailer. I liked the 2nd/3rd film. I'm not intrigued by the idea of spending an hour or more of the film with Jon Wick trying to remember that he's Neo.

So, um this rumoured mythical box set is no where to be found?

Did I miss something? The posters that were supposed to have connections around the forums said they believed it was coming.

I know people got excited by Silkworms finaly getting released, but this is a strange one.

The Anniversary fyi is on September 17th.

Iraq/Iran/Afghanistan/'s all the same bullshit...slightly different details

Now pardon me while I go into deep research mode where I learn who the owns Osama's last robe....

This post is up there with a certain someone's hydroxychloroquine post in spring last year about it all being over for being amongst the most mind bendingly dumb things I ever seen posted by someone who probably actually believes what they're saying.

I don't know who's playing here but I think it's the best instrumental part in the CD vault. Quick Song clip.

Slash could go wild with that riff and the soloing.

The riff is Robin and the chorus guitar Buckethead.

I disagree. If you listen to the rough mix version without Buckethead... the chorus is basically a copy of smells like teen spirit (and not in a it just sounds similar way). Bucket's playing during the chorus is the only thing that hides it.

So in a different thread?

How about we focus on the cost of this project and what it got us?

Yes, in a different thread about this exact topic.

Focus on whatever you want. The topic right now is the Taliban just took over Afghanistan because of one of the most spectacular failures of an American president ever.

Lol bc of a president? Let’s focus on that but NOT the last 15 plus years and a TERRIBLE return on a horrible investment.

Mitch if trump was the president right now, he'd rightly be thrown under the bus by western politicians and media.

Biden is in charge, doesn't mater what Trump did or didn't right now.

As for the "terrible return", this wasn't Iraq. Do you not remember the circumstances that brought about the Afghanistan war?
