Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

That's excellent. I just hope that anyone who hasn't seen it knows what they're letting themselves in for.

Getting ahead of things, I'd like to suggest that we follow CR67 with CR54. Again, I hope that those who haven't seen it know what they're letting themselves in for!

303

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

I've seen CR-67 years ago. I remember enough to know I wouldn't do it again if I wasn't watching it with you people.

This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

I've enjoyed watching hte Bond movies together with you and there are still a few left, I think it's time to talk about non-bond films we can watch together in the future. Here are soem I think can work:

Were eagles dare
The guns of Navarone
Force 10 from Navarone
Johnny English
Austin Powers
Mission Impossible

I don't have all these movies available now. if we require everyone to have the movies we watch together after we finish the Bonds we can probably stop watching movies together after FYEO. Of course we want as many as possible to watch movies together, but we're unlikely to all own the movies in question. But we only need 3-4 people to have fun watching a movie together!
hear everyone's opinions and suggestions on this  ajb007/smile

I thought of Hitchcock's films if people have them. But like Shady said I don't know films other than Bond well enough to watch and type.

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

I would like to ask a suggestion.....

Is there a possibility that the Bond watchalongs could be repeated in the future?
I (through no fault but my own) came into them late and they are great fun.

It would be nice to be in the Dr No, by having the Goldeneye to watch all of them?
To see all of them in this company would be Quantum nice. Plus if others like Me
who only live twice, it could be the Living Daylights.

I'll shut up Q now.

This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

309

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

I think the watchalongs can be repeated, but not for some time and it's probably best if more and possibly different people take part.
In the meantime I think we can watch spy movies and spy movie spoofs together.

310

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

On that subject, Number24 and I think that "OK Connery" aka "Operation Kid Brother" might be a possibility. It has many actors from the official series and some interesting music.

311

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

I‘d suggest watching the Austin Powers movies together and point out the references to the EON Bonds

Anyone else owns the OSS117 movies?

I have never seen it, but I've heard it's something special!

Especially the ending- you really have to pay close attention throughout for it all to make sense.

Interesting. It's often obvious how most spy movies will end.

317

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

"OK Connery" aka "Operation Kid Brother" is highly recommended. It stands the test of time like few of its peers, with some really standout performances and action sequences.

"How was your lamb?" "Skewered. One sympathises."

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

Really? That's great. There are some hidden gems that didn't do well at the box office and later were nearly forgotten. Rocketeer is one example.

I'd forgotten about that one- its a fine contribution to the cinematic oeuvre of spy films, with a marvellous central performance to boot. I'd really recommend "O.K. Connery" to anyone on this thread who hasn't seen it- they're missing out on an entertaining classic of the genre...

I agree…I love it, it hits the right balance between action and storytelling…took me YEARS to finally get hold of a copy (on VHS, still looking for a DVD copy)…it also has a great ‘Bond’ cast  ajb007/martini

You should try and get hold of the deluxe edition- 2 discs, interviews with the cast, deleted scenes, commentary from Michael G. Wilson explaining what Cubby thought of the film, etc.

322

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

Not sure if I'll be able to continue viewing on a regular basis but I have all three Austin Powers movies, all the Harry Palmers and the Matt Helms. I don't have 'Operation Kid Brother' but I see it's on youtube, albeit in poor quality.

Is CR54 still in the frame?

Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 49 years.

323

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

I hope so.

I have all of those you mention, so would be happy with any of them.

324

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

I'm totally down for Austin Powers or Harry Palmer.  I'd do Mission: Impossible and Jason Bourne as well.

Heck, I'd do the Die Hard films!

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

I belive CR-54 is next on Friday.

Should we limit us to espionage and secret mission movies and spoofs of them, at least at first?
