I quite like the idea with the black light effects

Well executed!

Plastic surgery. (He admitted it later)

Re: AJB live commentary on AVTAK

This credits sequence... so 80s in its aesthetic. Duran Duran were big Barry fans and sort of managed an okay synthesis of their style and his in the collaboration

Re: AJB live commentary on AVTAK

Duran Duran was the group of the 80s that remain timeless.
This song is the only good thing about the titles.

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

Re: AJB live commentary on AVTAK

This was Nic Raine’s first time as John Barry’s orchestrator. He continued in that role basically till Barry died and has recorded a lot of Barry and/or Bond music- often pieces or entire scores Barry himself never released.

Short version- At a party Duran Duran bass player John Taylor asked Cubby about his band doing the song for this film, and Cubby put them in touch with John Barry.

I think Taylor asked why they don't hire a good band like Duran Duran anymore  ajb007/lol

Afraid to say that hairstyle no longer really worked for Lois.

The legendary Lois Maxwell.   She never changed.

Re: AJB live commentary on AVTAK

The robodog dates the movie badly

Re: AJB live commentary on AVTAK

Surrounding Roger with older actors so he's the youngest. At this point.

Hang on - Sir Freddie Gray doesn’t know about EMP?

Q's surveillance machine. Possibly alludes to Doctor Who's metal dog K9, though that had been out of commission for a few years

Re: AJB live commentary on AVTAK

"My Fair Lady" reference (Moneypenny at the races)

Moore looks tired in that scene

It really does.

Tibbet calling Brown's M "Admiral". Same rank as Bernard Lee's M. Also supports the idea that Brown's M is the same character that he played in TSWLM, Admiral Hargreaves.

Re: AJB live commentary on AVTAK

It’s funny seeing the Eiffel Tower in this scene makes me think of Superman!

Obergine is badly dubbed!
