Re: SPECTRE Oddities & Miscellaneous Discussion Thread (SPOILERS)

I think if you were travelling on the 8.15 to where-ever and a fight broke out, involving guns, you'd make yourself scarce.  Especially when you've got someone of Mr Hinx's size and speed, I'd certainly not stick around.  I mean what are you going to do? Tell him to stop it and sit down!

Re: SPECTRE Oddities & Miscellaneous Discussion Thread (SPOILERS)

I can understand Bond and Madeleine getting off the train in the Moroccan desert, as that is where Mr White's map led them, but what did they expect to happen once they were there? They can't have known they were going to get a lift, surely? Or have I missed something?

Re: SPECTRE Oddities & Miscellaneous Discussion Thread (SPOILERS)

I think Bond was expecting to be picked up, they knew Bond was coming as they out Hinx on the train.

Well that answers my question, but it's made me come up with another; if Blofeld knew Bond was coming, and had all the hospitality ready for him that we see when he arrives at the lair, why would Hinx try and kill him on the train?

The teaser poster is misleading. Bond wears the turtle neck sweater towards the end under the John Varvatos jacket and the explosive watch has already been exploded.

The other thing is the train fight. Great as it is how come the train suddenly appears deserted once it all kicks off and they are free to completely destroy the train without any comeback. Even afterwards no-one comes up to them and says wtf was that all about..they just go off for a shag. No wonder they dumped them off in the middle of the desert when they got the chance  ajb007/lol .

Good of you to bring this train fight up: IMHO it was still, if not a particularly realistic fight scene, never the less one of the rarer ones: it really felt as if Bond was going to kick the bucket in the end. It gave an all too real flash back to me; it had that same desperate feeling of the last blink of an eye that you get when your punch-drunk in the ring or your oppo has gotten that choke down right on you and you know there is nothing in your power you can do. You are at his mercy.
It's a funny thing, I took a glance at my watch to see how far the movie had gone to make sure that: "naah they can't kill Bond now, can they?"
As suspenseful and intense moment as can be had in a movie!

The scene with the little mouse, just thought it was hiliarious.

Then, at Blofeld's lair, all those people working on the terminals. Do you think they get breaks at all? Or are they expected to work 8 hour days sitting on stools?

They get a 5 minute cigarette break, but they have to stand next to all of the inflammable pipes.

I would like to have seen more of the crater base. We didn't get many external shots before the whole thing blew sky high. It looked sort of like an oasis in the desert, with lawns and palm trees. Maybe there will be more on the deleted scenes.

I loved this bit too. After he said "Who sent you?" I thought to myself what the next line would be, and I was right, and I cracked up laughing in the cinema.

I also didn't understand the need for the actress at the start.

The Mexican government paid $25 million to have input in SPECTRE, including making Mexico City look "nice", making the Mexican police at the parade not police but actually a "special unit", and having one of the Bond girls be a Mexican girl.

She isn't really a character but more of a piece of Bond's costume. She is only there for looks, and she helps define Bond's character as someone who likes to have a woman by his side for decoration.

Re: SPECTRE Oddities & Miscellaneous Discussion Thread (SPOILERS)

Having seen the film first in german language and then in the original version:

Waltz's dubbing in german is much better! He inserts his Austrian Accent slightly which gives him an own twist.
And the sound effect when he first speaks to the board is much more intense than in the original version.

At the Spectre meeting - in the german version, the lady speaks french ( ajb007/insane  ajb007/insane  says my wife - I don't remember but tend to agree ) and I've just discovered that in the original version she speaks german  ajb007/biggrin

Re: SPECTRE Oddities & Miscellaneous Discussion Thread (SPOILERS)

I need some help with one scene I didn't understand. It was in Morocco when Madeleine starts to fall asleep drunk. She starts mumbling about liars and killers while Bond is sitting next to the bed staring at her. He has such an intense look which I didn't understand.

Is that because she can see who he is and he doesn't like it?
