Apologies for being insensitive, Higgins.

I really don't mind what we watch. If I'm not busy and as long as I don't hate the film, I'll happily watch any of those suggested, from Mission Impossible to Austin Powers via Flint, Helm and Palmer.

I love Where Eagles Dare. Burton is at his closest to Bond there.

No, Hollywood is always 100% honest, but "Where Eagles Dare" is .......... shal we  say ....... made in a different style than "Saving Private Ryan".  ajb007/shifty

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

We may as well finish off the AUSTIN POWERS trilogy.

After that, I'd vote for the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE films or the BOURNE films.  As this is a Bond/spy board, we may as well stay on topic with our viewing.

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

Mission Impossible is where I'd go: a really rather excellent film series and only getting better at the moment.
Amazing to think it's as old as the Bond series was at the time of Living Daylights!

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

I duly suggest we finish up Austin Powers 3 next, then followed by scheduling the entire Mission Impossible series...

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

I think we should decide soon if we're going to watch it i Friday. Finishing the Austin Powers series makes sense.

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

This Friday, there will be no movie.

As said, we had a very slow response in the last weeks and I want to build up a bit of tension and demand for the next viewing if that makes sense.
Even when I have announced the next movie very early, the participations where very low, so that should not be the issue.

Imo we must just accept that our common ground is Bond - when we go away from it, participation will drop and many of us won't have the corresponding media (DVD/Blu Ray). I just keep on doing this because I know how much Barbel enjoys them (seriously).

ajb007/smile  Next Friday then, I'm in for Austin 3.

(Btw, count me out for MI if those films turn up.)

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

I don't think we should quit teh watchalongs completely, but 2-3 weeks between each time seems sensible. I would hate it if the watchalongs stop just as I'm able to take part again.

463

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

I have enjoyed the few group watchalongs that I've attended. I joined AJB after they first started and I don't have all the Bond films so unfortunately couldn't join them all. They are showing 2 a week on tv here which I am enjoying and afterwards I read the relevant discussion on here from the group watch. And others who may join AJB later may do the same.

Regarding keeping this going now after Bond, I think it would be a shame to stop it as the people who take part do enjoy it. I know it has been a bit disappointing for you Higgins as you would have liked more people. But I would say not to look so much at the numbers but focus on the fact that you are providing a good time, fun for some, which has been appreciated. Quality over quantity if you like.

I really wanted to join To Catch A Thief but didn't have it. It somehow got deleted off my sky box. I was only able to join The Ipcress File because I found it on youtube. I'm not into Austin Powers so haven't joined those. The MI films have been suggested. Can I also suggest that we add a couple of Hitchcock films? North by Northwest or The 39 Steps?

464

Re: Watching the 007 movies together?

If AJB stops having these watchalongs just as I'm able to join you again it will be really frustrating to me. A watchalong this Friday seems unlikely since nothing has been decided yet and I probably need some days to get the right DVD.
