Re: The 00 Files. Podcasts, articles and more!

I didn't catch the name of the town(s) that probably were the inspirations for Royale-Lex-Eaux, or at least I don't know the French spelling of those places. Can you help me out?

One of the sources we used was this article at http://jamesbondmemes.blogspot.com/2015 … -eaux.html One of the passages from that site reads:

What about the inspiration for Royale-les-Eaux? Jon Gilbert in his magnificent Ian Fleming: The Bibliography (2012) states that the town is based on the coastal towns of Deauville, just south of Le Havre, and Le Touquet. However, some of the details of Royale that Fleming provides better fits the description of Trouville, which neighbours Deauville.

Re: The 00 Files. Podcasts, articles and more!

Today we released out 19th podcast. Another bit-sized episode of Man Talk.

In this second episode of the Man Talk series, our Dutch Jameses and Felixes continue their discussion about all things Bond. Making sure to be far away from the prying ears of any blond masseuses that might be lurking around, they discuss the following topics:

- What are some of the Bondian things you’ve done (recently)?
- What’s your favourite Bond decade and why?
- What are some of your favourite non-Fleming Bond novels?
- What is your favourite James Bond spoof?
- Between 2002 and 2006 the franchise seemed to be in a bit of a crisis (again!). What you remember from this period and how did you feel at the time?

They discuss their fear for another Die Another Day, the fantastic special features on the DVDs and becoming a proud Bond fan again after watching Casino Royale with your friends. Why Spy Hard has the best credits sequence of all Bond spoofs. How you can scientifically decide what your favourite Bond decade is (and how there is only one acceptable answer to that question). And last but not least, why indoor skydiving is an excellent gift for your girlfriend’s birthday.

If you enjoy our show, please share it with others! You can follow us on social media (simply search for The 00 Files), subscribe to our podcast in your favourite app and visit www.the00files.com for in-depth articles, location videos and more 00 fun!

Re: The 00 Files. Podcasts, articles and more!

Put on your cotton toweling blue onesie and get comfortable! Enjoy a game of gin rummy in Miami, meet a servant who doesn't take his hat off for lady, crash the sexiest car in existence into a wall and try to conquest Pussy Galore!

Anthony, Don, Tyler and Martin review the 1964 classic Goldfinger. Is it really the Bond film that many consider to be the golden standard? How does it hold up after all these years? Tune in to find out if it still has that Midas touch!

You better watch out for the following:
- Dom Perignon '53 above a temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Sweet old grannies shooting heavy machine guns.
- Trick pool tables revealing secret control panels.

Re: The 00 Files. Podcasts, articles and more!

I have just finished the podcast.
Personally not convinced by other than bond movie detailed reviews...
I think that we all saw every bond so many times but such film only once(maybe). Therefore it is kind of hard to follow or even remember /visualize the scene you referred to.
Moreover even if I like other spy-movies, I m a fan of Bond and not especially of every movie of this genre.

Therefore, im not convinced... Even if, once again, it's a pleasure to hear your team interaction!

An idea : instead of a detailed review of each spy movie, maybe try a podcast grouping the most relevant of them... And facing them...

Anyway, really happy to have you back
Cheers
François

Re: The 00 Files. Podcasts, articles and more!

Hi François,

Thank you for your feedback! It was something that we wanted to try out but aren't sure if it will be a one time thing or not. It was a lot more difficult to do this one (The Man From Uncle) because instead of being able to rely on the 100+ times you have seen a movie, all the background information you've gathered over the years, etc. etc. you just have to discuss a movie that I've only seen twice.... It was fun to do, but it does show why we picked the Bond movies ajb007/smile

Today our The Living Daylights movie review was released. As always, available on all the usual podcast apps.

Re: The 00 Files. Podcasts, articles and more!

The last few weeks we've released 4 new podcasts. First off, our The Living Daylights movie review. After that, our three part series where Don and I take a thorough look at Ian Fleming's second novel, Live And Let Die.

Re: The 00 Files. Podcasts, articles and more!

I've just listened to your review of TLD and I enjoyed it. Just a couple of comments:
- While we see Kara aiming the rifle in the sniper scene, we don't see exactly what she's aiming at. I think she was told by Koskov to keep watch and shoot if she sees anyone trying to stop him, so it's only natural to be aiming near him.
- Kara actually holds the buttstock of the rifle to her right  shoulder. I've done very little shooting with a bolt-action rifle, but to me her handling of the gun looks all right.

Re: The 00 Files. Podcasts, articles and more!

Grab your lighter, cufflink, cigarette case and pen because it is time put your golden gun together! In our tenth James Bond film review, we take on Roger Moore’s The Man With The Golden Gun.

We follow 007 as he travels to Beirut, Hong Kong, Macau and Thailand to catch up with the world’s most dangerous assassin. Along the way Bond fights some random goons in a nightclub, sumo wrestlers in a beautiful garden and dodges a few empty bottles thrown by the tiniest henchman on a beautiful junk. Christopher Lee plays the iconic titular character who some consider to be the best Bond villain ever..

Don, Anthony, Martin and Tyler discuss the 1974 movie that leads to a lot of dissension within the team. The movie is loved by some and hated by others; receiving a 9 from one of the hosts and the dreaded 1 by another. Listen along to find out whether this movie is rightfully called ‘A Symphony In Beige’.

You better look out for:
- Very subtle product placement by Tabasco and Nikon.
- AMC Hornets doing things that AMC Hornets weren’t designed to do.
- A donnybrook between two hip girls and an entire karate school while Bond just stands by.
- And of course, everybody’s favourite character from Live And Let Die, sheriff J.W. Pepper.
