"Suggested by AJB member Number24". That's too nice …. "suggested by AJB member Number24's butter-fingered typing" would be more honest  ajb007/lol

IMHO he wasn't. In CR06 Le Chiffre tells Craig (I often can't bring myself to call him Bond) that Mathis is his friend to draw suspicion away from Vesper. Apart from that there's no indication that he's a double agent.

I tend to lean that way too...it’s just the dialogue they have as Mathis is dying  ajb007/confused

Could be that Mathis is also turned like Vesper was and neither know about the other?

It has to be remembered that there was a writers' strike at the time and various people worked on the script. Perhaps the editor wrote that dialogue...?

True enough but you’d think they would have had a clear idea by the time they came to film that scene? I guess at least one them watched CR06  ajb007/shifty  perhaps DC made it up as he went along - he did have a hand in writing it.

As with so much in this film, Camille's back markings are never explained.

To that point, there's no way that a woman would wear a shirt like that with those scars.  Most guys wouldn't either.

True, so we're supposed to notice it... and then it's never explained.


I watched QoS again last night as it was on tv. When Camille goes to see Dominic after he tried to have her killed, they're standing at the water's edge and he has his arms around her. He says " you know what burns me more than all your bullsh*t ……… " and as he says that he touches her scars. If that's meant to be a clue, it's a poor one. I've never picked up on that before and only noticed it last night because it came up in this chat.

Re: AJB live commentary on QUANTUM OF SOLACE

I watched it again last night also...

As for the possibility of M being shot - again I think it’s very clear that the metal stand in front of her is hit (you can hear the sound of the bullet hit it) and then you see M running away...

And as for the scars on Camille’s back? These are explained during a conversation she has with Bond.

Re: AJB live commentary on QUANTUM OF SOLACE

Been away from all things Bond for a few months.

As you know I n the UK they are playing each DC film one per week. In hommage I have been choosing a suitable attire each weekend so this week it was ......


Today it was this

Yesterday it was this

https://i.postimg.cc/7bNrHxpK/6-DC761-A4-CF96-4-CAF-A2-A8-66-B2-A317-ED2-F.jpg

Not the strongest plot vs what was originally planned for QOS, but I do like the styling! The original plan was it would release 1 year after CR and would see Bond going in search of Vespers boyfriend, but he finds himself embroiled in a multilayered charade involving stolen antiquities, arms dealing, precious metals, nerve gas, the CIA and a mysterious organisation similar to SPECTRE. Kind of a shame really they never got that far.

And just messing with some props this:

With an afternoon off I decided to do some reading on the film here:

Well it keeps me outta trouble in these pandemic times ajb007/lol

My downfall I just found a black 2008 DBS with Casino wheels only 75k! (maybe one day)

Roll on Skyfall next week, but choices are limited for summer wear so I guess it will be the Setters one day and enjoying death the next depending on the weather!

Cheers  ajb007/bond

The styling on QOS is impeccable, probably my favorite of the Bond films.
