    The film isn't ruined for me. Not at all. I think Dalton has charisma too. What he lacks is film star presence and the "car salesman gene" that Moore and Brosnan got.


    Connery, Moore and Lazenby where cool cats!

    Dalton desperately tries to come over as one.

    Like Asp9mm says: Once you have realized this, there is no going back!
    LTK was among my favorite Bonds for a very long time - until, I have gotten totally annoyed by Dalton‘s interaction with Kara.

    That’s the genius of the editing. They cut them out before they actually start dripping. All you see is the ‘tearing up’ in his eye. But full on blubbing is most certainly implied.

    And I remember when some time ago, Asp9mm put on TLD after we‘ve „discussed“ controversely how bad it was.

    I‘ll never forget the humiliation in his messages when he had to admit that I was totally right :)) :))

    Are you mad. I’ve always know Dalton was rubbish. Nothing to do with your dumbass comments. I was just astounded your were right about something.

    I'm talking art- not commerce. Since no James Bond film has ever been a commercial failure, though naturally some perform better than others, we as fans should be considering the artistic elements of the movies.
    In this case, I have revised my opinion of Timothy Dalton as Bond downwards- artistically. The film was a commercial success, as was its sequel.

    Now, on Friday I suggest we watch a Pierce Brosnan movie. My personal favourite is TWINE but I am aware that GE is a more popular choice and I won't argue if that is the pick.

    You are forgiven! :D

    I was re-capturing the movie from yesterday and god - was it awful!
    Dalton is waddling thru it mostly like an alien which has never found it's place.

    I know that Dalton was reading the novels and tried a less camp more Fleming more gritty approach but as good as an actor he may be, he's failing miserably. Dalton is the bullied kid at school trying to play Bond, he tried to be cool he tries to be gritty, the problem is that he isn't!
    The Bond tuxedo is 2 numbers too big and too heavy for him and the problem is that he's trying so hard, too hard and it gets obvious when you are watching him closely. He totally lacks the easiness and lightness when Connery or Moore where playing Bond.
    Even Lazenby without any acting experience is more convincing because he gave a damn.
    Dalton tries it so obviously that it's an embarrassment and as said yesterday - once you realize this, there is no way back!


    LTK gets a lot of flak for looking like TV and looking like Miami Vice but in my opinion, TLD is the one that looks like TV!!
    I am watching on a big TV at home and I've never escaped the TV mood and it never came acrosss that it would look any better in the cinema.
    LTK on the other hand looks like a "good" and expensive Miami Vice episode, it actually benefits a lot when you see the beautiful (aerial) shots in Florida on the large screen! LTK is bigger than TLD in almost any regard while it still has the main flaw which sticks out like a sore thumb:

    Timothy Dalton!

    I am glad that his time was over after his second and he's actually the only Bond actor whom I wanted to see going.
    I know that Roger Moore was too old in AVTAK but I still have that thankful and sad feeling that he's left after it.

    OK, President Higgins, once you are finished with your self-congratulat... I mean, press conference, can we decide which film to watch next?
  • HigginsHiggins GermanyPosts: 16,366MI6 Agent
    Please let me enjoy the feeling that I have you all on your knees and admitting that I have been correct over all the years that I‘ve undeservedly received flak from the Timboys.

    Allow me another Victory Lap* or 100, I promise that this ends soon - in 2022 :D

    Not one tear will I shed, just like Dalton, but which film do you think we should watch next?
  • HigginsHiggins GermanyPosts: 16,366MI6 Agent
    I lean towards LTK to get you all even more annoyed and suffering and to get over with Dalton.

    Seeing how well LTK is by comparison will ultimately silence all voices who claim how great TLD is.

    GE would also be a good idea so that we can see what a good Bond entry of a new actor can look like, followed by TWINE or DAD.
    Then CR is a must imo

    Boob alert!

    Is my memory playing tricks, or have I seen her full frontal nude at once in the past?
    On my Blu Ray, you can see her frontal (but it seems to be cropped so that) you can't see any nudity and then her full body from the side.
    I remember it differently - and yes, I have double-checked this morning ;%

    There is a full frontal on mine.

    I have the feeling that they enlarged that shot to a point where you can‘t see anything anymore. You basically can only see her face on my Blu Ray.

    But I have an older one (which was very rare back then - I have no idea why) will check this.

    Barbel, thinking about keeping this stickie and move to the James Bond Films section.

    It makes new Timboys think again before posting nonsense and I can easily find this thread and using it as a reference instead of engaging into a discussion.

    But then my postcount will not grow anymore - I need to stick with the politics then only.....

    You should seriously think about posting less anyway. That way everyone is happy.

    Well, in that case, I should post a little more :D

    Please, no.

    I think we should persist with our pattern and pick a Pierce, pronto please.
  • HigginsHiggins GermanyPosts: 16,366MI6 Agent
    Persist with our pattern that we are watching 2 movies from each actor in a row :v
