5 things I learned from QoS.

007007 ClassifiedPosts: 371MI6 Agent
1. Shooting hydrogen fuel cells won't hurt you.
2. If you're teetering on the edge of a roof, don't try holding onto Bond's jacket.
3. Overthrowing dictatorships is actually quite easy.
4. If you need to get hold of the CIA just find the nearest cabbie.
5. Never go near Bond if you're on a motorbike. Chances are he'll twist the throttle sending you flying. And do it while looking awesome and stylish.

Anyone got any others?
Things I hate:

    6) The throttle on Haitian motorbikes is on the wrong side.
    7) Crappy old cargo planes are actually pretty good in a dog fight.
    8) As well as tv's, kettles etc, Haitian hotel rooms are equipped with tailoring scissors, very handy in a scrap.
    9) Alfa 166 saloons can keep up with Aston Martins with 4 times the horsepower.

    Bond has been spending enough time hanging around with M and her apartment to start asking questions. (Apartment isn't a euphemism) ;%

    6) The throttle on Haitian motorbikes is on the wrong side.
    The bike is in gear and the rider has the clutch pulled in. Bond smacks his hand and he dumps the clutch.

    I learned Bond should always carry a parachute, as he is forever falling out of planes.
    Dont wait for your ship to come in. Swim out and meet the bloody thing.

    Yes...he has a decided tendency to drink Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey...namely, Jim Beam. Keeps a half-pint under the seat of his car.

    You must be thinking about some other tendency...

    This is one of many moments I've experienced on this site from time to time (mostly with NP): Despite a common language, sometimes I'm just at a loss.

    Drinking & driving, Loeff ? That's bad, very bad - he might spill some X-(

    Oscar Jade would never spill a drop anywhere...except down his throat, LOL B-) Besides, to Jade it's more driving & drinking than vice versa...the man's a model of functioning self-medication.

    Back on topic: One thing I learnt from QoS is that anybody can edit a Bond film these days---whilst using oven mitts :#

    Ah, and I thought with the throttle on idle it would simply stall. My Honda VTR 1000 simply stalled when I once dropped the clutch a the lights. Maybe its a V-twin thing. Oh well.

    Time to admit to being a touch adolesent. I found a door handle just like this one recently at a motorway services and gave it a go. It bent very badly, and after nearly breaking my wrist, felt a bit of an idiot. Oh yeah, and before anyone says anything about being weak - I'm six foot, 250lbs and used to teach unarmed combat both in the Paras and to private sector security/protection companies. In fact, I find the stunts in Bond far more plausible than this door handle thing... :#

    16-Wrist locks work all the time, in hotel rooms and on motorcycle cops.
    Guys in hotel rooms get their wrists broken.
    Motorcycle cops flop into spectacular break-falls.

    17 - All assassins have a briefcase containing 100 pages of blank white paper, a picture of their target, and a gun.

    *If your car door obstructs your line of fire, just ram a semi until it gets ripped off.

    *If at all possible, try and work for an organization where the first thing your boss does when you've just survived a deadly chase and delivered a high-value target is serve you a high-ball.

    1) Bond is still cool to a generation most likely pretty unaware (at least in any great detail) of the franchise's history pre-Brosnan (half a billion at the box office, not bad).

    2) Craig owns the role like nobody since Connery.

    3) David Arnold has some very surprising music cues in him (thinking of the very retro-sounding segue bits sprinkled throughout the film, very nice indeed).

    4) Bond can survive - and flourish - on film without the previous Bond's ubiquitous nudge-nudge, wink-wink tie-straightening act or other camp moments of that sort (to be fair not started by Brosnan, just the most recent violator), said moments usually presaged by a handy-gadget escape (also banished, yay!)

    5) Bond can have the cinematic equivalent of Fleming-Bond's FU moments, and pile on the booze (nice touch IMO).

    1. You can survive point blank gun fire from a machine gun
    2. You don't have to be that far from the ground to use a parachute and survive.
    3. People who work for the government are shocked when they have to do underhanded things.
    4. No one has time for anything other than shooting and killing.
    5. Water is so important that it actually serves as a plot for a series about major political espionage.
