    After reading a discussion between Barbel and Sir Miles over the musical merits of " another way to die "
    I was in the mood for a bit of QOS.

    I hope that ‘bit’ was the excellent theme tune -{ :D

    But they didn't use the excellent theme tune, as written by David Arnold & Don Black and sung by Shirley Bassey. They used the other thing instead.

    Where you discussing 'No Good About Goodbye'? I love that. It should have been the theme tune but I do like 'Another Way To Die' too.It's the best thing about QoS as far as I'm concerned :v

    Spectre is on ITV2 tonight. I'll probably pop into it at some stage.

    I think " another way to die " is a great
    Driving song, well I enjoy it when driving. :D

    I realised earlier today that I haven't watched a Bond film yet this year, and quite shockingly that means that I haven't watched a Bond film in the current decade! Anyway, I remedied that with a viewing of For Your Eyes Only this evening. The choice of film was mostly inspired by having read the chapter on FYEO in Some Kind of Hero yesterday, and also reflecting on how much Fleming material was actually included in the screenplay - even the amusing identigraph scene is based on Fleming. I thoroughly enjoyed the film, one of my favourite Moores. I'm really feeling in the mood for more 80s Bond flicks and may indulge in a few more over the next little while.

    Oh dear ... Hubby wasn't impressed with Christoph Waltz. 'Who's this guy? He's not a very good Bond villain' :o

    The scene where Blofeld is trying to laser Bond's brain always reminds me of a scene in Flash Gordon.

    Have you jumped ship and got yourself a new husband. Lady Rose? It's the only way I can account for the above comment. I mean, surely he's seen that Bond film loads of times seeing as he's married to you? :D
    I watched it, love that film. All the same... like, sending the henchman to kill Bond on the train. But of course, if he doesn't succeed by chance, I've got everything set up for his arrival at the hotel, all the photos framed etc. What's that? Oh, you killed him on the train. Seems a waste. Well, pop them in the bin. :#

    Just to play Devil's advocate, Perhaps Hinx was acting on his own initiative ? :p
    In an early draft script he was supposed to be Bringing Blofeld his yearly supply
    of new socks, Hence why Blofeld hasn't got any ;)

    Blofeld does have socks, he just wears them in the same colour as his skin. It's yet another way he deceives us.

    Ha ... still the same old hubby NP.

    He's never been into Bond so never pays much attention if I have them on. The last time he watched a complete Bond was when I made him go to the cinema with me to see CR.I don't think he's seen the whole of Spectre.

    I don't completely disagree with him. Christoph was a bit of a disappointment for me and should have most finitely have been wearing socks. :))

    I too was disappointed with Christoph Waltz as Blofeld. I was so excited on learning of his
    casting in the film, but in SPECTRE it was all just a bit Meh! ......

    hey Thunderpussy you've been here all along!
    how come you're not watching the movies in real time with Higgins and the gang?

    you too, Lady Rose! you could be watching the films with folks who appreciate them!

    Lord Rose is a Bond heathen but after 26years I don't think I'm going to convert him!!

    It doesn't help that we no longer have a DVD player in the house so I have to take my Bond where I can these days. :#

    aw thats too bad, but I understand.
    Higgins group viewing sessions do assume the viewers have the film handy and available to watch.

    well whatever you do watch, keep the reviews coming!
    I always learn something new reading others comments on the films they watch

    You'll have to get in to Digital Downloading Lady Rose, To pass the time on

    I had them all on VHS, then most of them on DVD and now ....

    They show them enough on the ITV channels for me to get my fill.

    SPECTRE. Not forming a break away sub-committee with TP and LR you understand, just happened to fall at an opportune time.

    There are parts of that film that I love and are spot on, other parts frustrating (all discussed before so won't list again). Mrs Red Kind always watched and enjoyed it despite picking up on some plot holes.

    I'm in this small club too. SPECTRE is flawed, but I'm entertained by it.

    as a quick heads up:

    On Vudu (in the USA, at least), you can buy all 24 EON Bond films for streaming for only $99.99 + tax. That's $4.17 for each movie. The format is 4K/UHD as well, about as good as you're going to get.

    ITV4 put Live And Let Die on yesterday.

    I watched LALD a couple days ago on blu-ray

    When it’s good, it’s very good. I wish they had spent more time on character development and less time on slapstick chase scenes. They’ll do a 20 minute boat chase, but only a brief 5 second fight with Baron Samedi? *sigh*
    My current 10 favorite:

    1. GE 2. MR 3. OP 4. TMWTGG 5. TSWLM 6. TND 7. TWINE 8.DN 9. GF 10. AVTAK
