I do find it amusing that the parade hasn't closed down and the police called to the site of the collapsed building.  Nah, just keep going with the parade...

Re: AJB live commentary on SPECTRE

The helicopter fight has to measure up to the FYEO PTS. The John Glen era had always delivered on shots of aerial stuntmen playing baddies plunging to their death... here we don't get that when Sciarra and the pilot are booted out.

The music effect when the helicopter barrels... a nod to the TMWTGG slide-whistle?

Re: AJB live commentary on SPECTRE

Excellent PTS- the drum music’s about the best in the film, there’s intrigue and spectacle and a bit of humour, and Craig gets to use both his expressions.

Re: AJB live commentary on SPECTRE

The titles sequence is very effective in the way it includes images from past films/figures, like the OHMSS titles. Also, Kleinman is giving us an idea of how he might have put together an OP title sequence.

Gay porn mixed with hentai.

This song has some good musical elements to it and actually has a decent melody...it's just performed with all of the gusto of a person eating a soggy Chinese dinner.

I don't like his voice. I much prefer Jane Zhang's cover of this.

Love Ralph Fiennes as M.  Perfect casting and I love his intensity.

Fiennes is superb

Re: AJB live commentary on SPECTRE

Ralph Fiennes is fully M. Having problems with 007, as did his predecessors... but with underlying respect. Andrew Scott is brilliant in this.

Since when does Bond have to report to Q for a medical?

Honestly, M seems like the role that Fiennes was born to play.

I really like the friendship between Bond and Moneypenny developed during this arc of films.
