Someone's a Bond fan on the art direction team. I mean... it's a sign that I have got to give it a shot...
Also, on Kill Bill and Skyfall.

I know silhouettes and Bond go way back but was this intentional?

Re: Obscure Bond References in Movies/Media in General

wait isn't the second image Skyfall?
maybe if you can find a Bond image that precedes Kill Bill, in our universe where Steven Hawking claims time only moves in one direction...
Tarantino is a Bond fan so the influence on that scene is quite possible, its just the data selected to prove it is flawed

Not talking about Kill Bill.
Talking about Skyfall having a fight scene shot with silhouettes in Kill Bill fashion.
Should've made that clearer and will definitely use the Stephen Hawking thing, very clever ajb007/martini

As far as I'm concerned there hadn't been a fight scene with silhouettes in a Bond film.
Lots of naked ladies but no Bond fights (unless Thunderball's underwater sequence counts and maybe the spear guns shot in the titles and or I'm misremembering), so in effect, it could be that Kill Bill's silhouette fight influenced the direction of the Skyfall fight.

More of a parody than a reference but...sure.
If you want to get a little more...specific (even if you don't need to), go right ahead.

ah, now I got it, Bond-films are themselves influenced by other films.
But that scene in Kill Bill could have been influenced by typical Maurice Binder opening credits. Those are highly influential.
Everything in Tarantino is a clever reference to some past influence he loves, the low-er-brow the better ... the low-brow-er... ahem, the more low-brow the better. I bet there are lots of James Bond references in his films for us to find. there were Superman references in Kill Bill, and not just in that never-ending closing monolog.

Exactly.
If we crossed over there, North By Northwest influenced the From Russia With Love helicopter scenes and so on and so forth.
It never ends, does it? ajb007/biggrin

Maybe one moonlit, summer night I may go on the hunt for those. (Tarantino films, I mean)

Re: Obscure Bond References in Movies/Media in General

Is it just me or does the final climactic sequence in Chicken Run,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZpSfV3eyAo

look like it gained strong inspiration from this memorable, thrilling Bond moment?

Roger Moore is my favourite 007 R.I.P.

Re: Obscure Bond References in Movies/Media in General

You could also say that they gained inspiration From A View To A Kill with Bond hanging on a thread.

Re: Obscure Bond References in Movies/Media in General

Back to Neon Genesis Evangelion, the main action theme is very reminiscent of "007" or "007 Takes The Lektor" from "From Russia With Love".
If not, at least it's highly influenced by it. The main melody is different but it is there.
https://youtu.be/PkBs4qI1bb4?t=2m51s
Still, it's a great rendition of one of the series's best action themes.

Re: Obscure Bond References in Movies/Media in General

There's an old Morecambe and Wise  film " That Rivera touch"
In one scene several cars are seen driving off an airplane,  the
first two cars are a Rolls Royce followed by an Aston Martin.
I've always believed this to be an in joke about Goldfinger, which
Would have been released just a few years earlier.

Re: Obscure Bond References in Movies/Media in General

Watched The Rat Race (2001) last night and there’s a car chase scene where they bust into a monster truck arena and find themselves as part of the action. Pure nonsense comedy, but it reminded me of the stock car race in OHMSS.

From "The Pink Panther" (2006). Unfortunately someone has dubbed over Clive Owen's line where he says he's 006 (thus ruining the joke). Note the Cubby Broccoli lookalike at about 28 seconds in, admiring Owen's drink.

And the next new female led action comedy up is "The Spy Who Dumped Me"...no seriously, that's the title. A few Bond references in the trailer - an obvious one is the Bond style title sequence at the start.

Re: Obscure Bond References in Movies/Media in General

While realizing this is an old thread, the wife and I just watched "The Spy Who Dumped Me" tonight and I thought it was a lot better film than I was willing to give it credit for initially.

Also, after watching it and seeing Sam Heughan's performance, we, the wife and I, think he'd make an excellent Bond. Additionally, he does do action sequences very well and makes them quite believable.

He is Scottish and my wife thought he looked very dashing in a tuxedo as well. She is usually an excellent judge of most things, except of course, she did make the decision to marry me. So, aside from that obvious faux pas, she is an excellent judge of these things.
