    It's always a pleasure to watch one of Dalton's Bonds, but your reason for us to do so is a bad one. I say we watch GE or TND, then DAD.

    I agree with N24.

    Persist with our pattern that we are watching 2 movies from each actor in a row :v

    I'd be happy with LTK. Then we'd have 20ish films (however many we have to go) to watch Dalton free to finish off the series.

    ...to be completely honest, I really don’t mind Dalton’s films. Buuuuut those feelings aren’t really echoed around these parts so let’s get LTK over and done with!

    And who stood up to defend me when everybody pressured me to watching TLD with the only reason to seeing me suffering and made great fun of it? :D

    I wanted to watch LTK instead of TLD yesterday, something I made Clear in several posts.
    In my opinion it's smart to spread the films of the different actors over time, so I'd like to watch a couple of Brosnan's now and happily return to LTK later.

    I think they’ve suffered enough. Many TimBoys went to bed emulating their hero last night by crying into their pillows. When faced with the savage evidence that is TLD, everything they thought was true now lies in ruins and dust.

    Thank God we're so mature. If we weren't this thread could become embarrasing :p

    well yeah!

    This is strictly to ensure that I've seen all versions of the film.

    Also (and I'm serious about this), it's fascinating to see what can be gotten away with in other territories AND in different eras. The US has a weird stance on what will constitute an R rating (or even a PG-13 rating), with language being really the only thing that you can look at as being consistently allocated/assigned in the available ratings. Nudity and violence are all over the map in terms of what can be allowed in the different ratings categories.

    I admit to being, still, a quasi-Timboy on the basis of LTK and the whole early, tense sniper sequence in TLD adapted directly from Fleming's short story, 'The Living Daylights'. Overall, though, I don't really much like TLD. As for which film next, I'd also say it should probably be a Brosnan, but not his first, since there's already been a number of 'firsts' in the viewing schedule thus far (DN, OHMSS and TLD). I think we should also avoid DAD for the time being, as it's widely panned and we've only just seen TLD which obviously was felt as a bit of a slog. That would leave either TND or TWINE. For my money, TND feels a bit like it's in the Lewis Gilbert-ish tradition and TWINE feels a bit like it's in the John Glen-ish tradition, but that's just my personal feeling about those two films, and we've recently seen films made by both. End of the day, I'm personally easy about seeing any of the remaining Bond films :-)
    Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 50 years.

    I didn't know you share Higgins' facination with Timothy Dalton 😏

  • Charmed & DangerousCharmed & Dangerous Posts: 7,070MI6 Agent

    😂😂 I'm not sure that anyone is quite as fascinated with TD as Higgins, given that he's revisiting this thread to post memes of his hero...
