PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT WE ARE ALL STARTING 10 MINUTES LATER !

The 19:00 deadline is set so that everybody has enough time to find their DVDs/Blu Rays, boot their players and get done with the menus and pause right before the gunbarrel sequence.

WE ARE STARTING PRECISELY AT 19:10



- Please make sure that everybody has their BluRay/DVD/VCR ready and start the player latest 19:00 GMT to get done with all the dodgy menus.
- PAUSE YOUR PLAYER RIGHT BEFORE WHERE IN ALL RATIONALITY THE GUNBARREL SEQUENCE SHOULD BE AND
- HIT PLAY PRECISELY AT 19:10.
I‘ll post some timecodes during the thread just in case that somebody has messed it up

    Wait... does this mean we're watching only the end titles, this time?!

    It’s the date at that current time in the listed location. That picture showing all the time zones is old though—from April 4 (04/04)—or the date on it is incorrectly set. But going by that image, 2000 on the April 4 in London makes it 0700 on April 5 in Wellington.

    Below is an updated version (with correct dates) for the Skyfall viewing.

    Thanks, and I have updated the chart.

    I have been recycling the old one from early April, never thought that anyone would care about the date :D

    Now I know, why in most of my posts come over like I am a total jackass.
    That‘s just because Barbel has been fiddling around with them and nobody can see! X-(

    As of now, my conflicting meeting for tomorrow has been punted. As such, unless things change, I'll be able to attend.

    Cool! So with SF, it begins with the MGM logo, followed by the Columbia Pictures logo. Our starting point, I'd venture, should be when the Columbia Pictures logo fades, just before the first shot of the movie proper...

    I'm looking forward to it, too. This time I won't be doing my usual discussion of the musical cues, since there are a lot of them and they're mostly very similar.

    They will be back, when you pick a film with a better score! Newman's work hasn't impressed me, I'm afraid (even less with SP). I do like Adele's song, though.

    Good, because that's what I thought. :D

    On a slightly other topic: At some point we'll run out of Bond films or we'll feel the need for more variation. Do you (plural) think we can expand to other films? I know the chanses everyone has excess to a particular movie, but this is so much fun I think we should consider it. We won't get everyone each time, but I think it could work. Perhaps other spy movies (Jason Bourne, Mission Impossible etc.) or classical special operations films like "The guns of Navarone" or "The eagles nest". I think there'll be enough of us for it to work.
    Discuss. :)

    It's far too soon to do it, but I don't think it's too soon to talk about it. I look forward to watching the Bond films we skiped in the first round, but I think it could be nice to watch for example "The guns of Navarone" together at some point.

    It's a good film, and David Niven is in it, but it'll be a while before we get to that.

    Alistair MacLean is a good subject for us Bond fans to get into, but if we go there eventually I'd suggest "Where Eagles Dare" first.

    I was actually thinking of "Where eagles dare" when I wrote "The Eagles nest", I just translated the Norwegian title without thinking. :))
    I don't think we'll watch it in May, but we may be ready in June.

    May I respectfully suggest the Harry Palmer films?
    Or the Austin Powers films?

    That said, count me in for WHERE EAGLES DARE. That's my personal favorite 'men on a mission' film, and I'm due for my annual viewing of it.

    'Second rate punk, huh?'

    The issue with non-Bond films, even some big ones, is that a lot of members won’t have them on disc or might not be subscribed to a streaming service that has them. But this being a Bond forum, there’s a pretty good chance that most have access to all the Bond films; which is why these rewatches have worked.
