Re: Tributes Thread

Seems that Tanya Roberts only lives twice - although by the look of News reports she's still in a critical condition. Let's hope that she makes a full and speedy recovery.

Sadly it seems that Tanya Roberts died for real last night, aged 65. The source is TMZ again so make of that what you will:

RIP Barbara Shelley - the first lady of British horror. Although a good age it appears she was taken too soon. One of my all time favourite leading ladies and certainly ticked all my boxes. Such a fine woman. She will be sorely missed.

Re: Tributes Thread

Alas, Barbara Shelley. Wonderful in Hammer movies, including two of my favourites (Dracula, Prince Of Darkness and Quatermass And the Pit). In the first of those, she all but steals the movie- except, well, Christopher Lee is unstealable from in a Dracula movie unless you're Peter Cushing.

Sad to hear of the death of Michael Apted. TWINE was the second James Bond film I saw in the cinema and to my mind it remains one of Pierce Brosnan's best, along with GE.

Such a shame to hear about the death of Michael Apted  ajb007/crap

He was a great documentary and film maker...his Up series was truly remarkable...he also directed some Coronation Street episodes...

Re: Tributes Thread

Though I'm a Bond fan, there aren't many I'd really liked in the last  ajb007/crap  30 years.

Two I liked unreservedly.

One of those was The World Is Not Enough.

I had misgivings when I heard Apted had been selected. But I really liked this movie. Not saying the bar was set so high by the previous ones, but for me it hung together well, some genuinely witty jokes 'See you back at the lodge' and nothing too cringey. Brosnan looked his best in that one, imo. The audience in Odeon Leicester Square got behind it.

ajb007/martini  Cheers Mister Apted.

Re: Tributes Thread

Controversial around here perhaps, but to me Apted's best work was the episodes of "Rome" (The reason God created DVD boxes) he directed.

Re: Tributes Thread

Yes I stopped short of adding his passing to the tributes thread for obvious reasons, but you can’t deny his contribution to music.
