Re: AJB live commentary on THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH

This really is the highlight of the movie in terms of action.  None of the remaining action sequences have the spot on pacing of this sequence.

Re: AJB live commentary on THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH

The music seems briefly to drift into MR Venice style as Bond crashes through the fish market... love that!

I can only think of one time when it wasn't (the slide whistle)

WOW! I'd forgotten how good that was.

And now, one of the stronger PTS credit sequences.  The oil effect is exceptionally well done here, and I happen to love the song itself.

Re: AJB live commentary on THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH

The way the PTS segues into the titles, with Bond's tumble, injury and landing... a homage to the parallel sequence in MR. Arnold even delivers a brief drum roll, as we had when Jaws fell into the circus tent.

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

Re: AJB live commentary on THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH

Don‘t care too much for the song.
A bit chewy and repetitive. Not surprisingly as it basically consists of only one note  ajb007/biggrin

Re: AJB live commentary on THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH

Garbage did an excellent job, their video is good enough.
With the exception of CR-06 this is the last good theme song we have had!

Because when you think of action, you think of this guy.  Just a baffling decision.

No, no- it uses the "devil's interval", a tritone which was forbidden in olden times. Very interesting musically. (Also used in "The Wolf Man")

Never understood the crazyness for Sophie Marceau.
She was gorgeous in La Boum ( the first) but then.....

She was excellent in BRAVEHEART, I thought.

I think she's excellent here, too.

Re: AJB live commentary on THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH

Shirley Manson, like Robert Carlyle, is a Scot... the Scottish location is a good choice.

Wonderful to have back Michael Kitchen's Tanner.

M's speech closely tracks irl speeches made by heads of state after terrorist attacks.

Brosnan overdoes his line "Tanner!"

Eilan Donnan castle. Excellent choice for Thaine. 
The interior sets aren’t bad too.

It’s also nice to see a few other double ops in the briefing scenes.
