Hopefully he fired that agent after beating the hell outta him.

Having already been face to face in You Only Live Twice, you would think Blofeld might recognise Bond from the first meeting at the alpine resort.
Yeah, but it was Connery he met in YOLT, when he met Lazenby he obviously didn't recognise him.

Can anybody tell me the current number of the bank account of his agent back then?

The fact that he prevented more Bond films with Lazenby is worth transfering a substantial sum.

Greetings!

Roger Moore's stuntman is back...

A View To A Kill

Well... there's one Bond film that hasn't improved since my last viewing. Chris Walken can do loopy like Terry-Thomas can play a cad. The rest of the film however is lacking energy, with the increasingly obvious use of a stuntman for Moore is now too much to overlook.

But beneath all the mould, I bet there's probably a decent Bond waiting to claw it's way out. With a bit of recasting, AVTAK would be on it's way to being a decent Bond. The thought of Dalton going up against Walken certainly intriques me.

And if they had to cast one of Charlie's Angels, why couldn't it have been Jaclyn Smith instead? She's by far, more attractive than Roberts imo.

According to the Melon Farmers site, 'Diamonds Are Forever' has been re-classified from a PG to a 12 for the upcoming 50th anniversary Blu-Ray box set

Latest UK Cuts: BBFC cuts and bans

From what I can gather, this new rating is wholly and soully for the film - there are no new extra features which has caused the BBFC to up the limit

That's curious. I wonder if some footage has been restored or whether it relates to one of the feature commentaries. Strange.

The new trailer for 'Skyfall':



To me, it's very Jason Bourne-esque

It can't be any more Bourne than the last one (which I liked) ! Looks pretty cool to me Spotted some of the Pinewood sets I managed to sneak a peak at earlier in the year . . .

I actually liked this trailer. Hated the last film, it has the distinction of being the only Bond I can't get through in one sitting.
