One minute to go

56

Re: AJB live commentary on DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

There were 3 “jolt” moments when I first saw this, first one when the man comes crashing through the screen

Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

Re: AJB live commentary on DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

Go!

Excellent arrangement of the gunbarrel music by the maestro.

Music “Gunbarrel and Manhunt”

I don't think there are any particular rules against people living on the other side of the world participating, so join in!  ajb007/biggrin  ajb007/biggrin  ajb007/biggrin

Bad dubbing

Re: AJB live commentary on DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

I hate to say it (cos I like this film) but this is probably the weakest PTS so far

64

Re: AJB live commentary on DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

So much hair on Blofeld!

"He's back! Sean Connery... as Ian Fleming's James Bond, Double O Seven!"

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

Threathening a woman with strangling her with her bra .....
Perhaps not completely #Metoo, but it's very Fleming.

Re: AJB live commentary on DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

Sorry I’m late bloddy tech problems....
The A.R.S.E is doing the SABs.

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

Re: AJB live commentary on DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

An interesting thing about this 'Marie' scene is that I often hear people comment about Bond's sandals...which are only visible in the trailer. So, my question is, can Bond be held accountable for a so-called fashion faux pas that isn't even visible in the final film?

By the way - As a South African I can't imagine life without sandals/flip-flops/some other open toed footwear.

Re: AJB live commentary on DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

Quite violent for the time for an ‘A’ certificate film with the finger clasp

Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

Re: AJB live commentary on DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

Stinky mashed potato...

The two guys in helmets were OHMSS heavies... one a Draco man, the other a SPECTRE man

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

Re: AJB live commentary on DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

I actually like this PTS, especially the "Welcome to hell.Blofeld" line.
But Connery looks very camp when he puts his hands up  ajb007/lol

73

Re: AJB live commentary on DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

The 2003 remaster has a slightly longer version of the title song (inc the opening sting as the camera freezes on the cat plus more of the ostinato before Dame Shirley starts singing) compared to the familiar released version

74

Re: AJB live commentary on DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

Great theme song  ajb007/smile

Bond wears them in the novel Thunderball when he meets Domino for the first time...
