Re: AJB live commentary on THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN

Bond's ruse, posing as his own mannequin, is quite effective on first viewing. (Familiarity breeds contempt after countless viewings.)

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

Scaramanga needs lots of sun and a not particularely powerful state, so Thailand should work for him.

So, how did Scaramanga have all of this built out in the middle of a nowhere island in Thailand?  The logistics of the construction effort defy reality.

I know, I know...because movie.

Apparently Hi Fat had it done?

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

Music “Slow Boat from China / Nick Nack” The original hasn’t been released, but a cover by Nic Raine was released in 2000 (and later on assorted compilations)

Re: AJB live commentary on THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN

The slow boat looks great.

Re: AJB live commentary on THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN

The stuff with the cloud passing over the sun, with Bond in danger of being lasered, is very like a Gerry Anderson scene... it must be the Derek Meddings associations again.

Nick Nack uses his size to his advantage here. Reminds me of the fight with the villan in the Jack Reacher novel "61 hours".

If I remember correctly, there is another trailer part of the Blu Ray, where you can see a bit more of the duel

“No need to fear, James Bond is here” as heard in CR67

Re: AJB live commentary on THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN

The "Goodnight" joke is a bit laboured... especially when Lulu picks up on it too in the end lyric.

Re: AJB live commentary on THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN

I think it's one of the weaker Bonds. There are really good things like Christopher Lee, some really good lines, James Bond island, the Swedish actresses etc. It's also interesting seeing Moore play a harder, colder Bond. He could have been a good villan in "The Jackal", something I didn't see until tonight. TMWTGG feels cheap to me.

Re: AJB live commentary on THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN

very fun.  Thanks!

There is a trailer „guess who is coming for Christmas“ on the Blu Ray, there you can see Bond throwing the bottle and more
