I don't think Taylor Swift should have any feedback  on it  ajb007/tongue

Why not, she may be a huge Connery fan  ajb007/biggrin 

Like Michelle in 'Allo 'allo I rarely repeat myself, but this time I will:

If we change Tuesday's movie to DN, are there any members in adition to those who origionally signed on for Navarone who will join us in watching DN? If I change the plans it has to be done tonight or tomorrow morining at the latest, so swift/quick/hasty/rapid/speedy feedback is apriciated.

Let's spend the US presidential election night doing something fun and constructive together!  ajb007/biggrin
The origional plan was to watch The Guns of Navarone, but we decided to celebrate sir Sean Connery's life and movies by watching DN together instead!  ajb007/bond !
Everyone is invited! If youre not familiar with the consept I'll try to explain it: We start watching at the same time, regardless of witch time zone we're in. We'll comment on what's going on as if we were sitting in the same living room, eating pizza and drinking [insert your beverage of choise] together. We will comment on the thread you're on now.

Paris wintertime:              19:00

PLEASE  KEEP IN MIND THAT WE ARE ALL STARTING 10 MINUTES LATER !

The 19:00 deadline is set so that everybody has enough time to find their DVDs/Blu Rays, boot their players and get ready for playing the movie
WE ARE STARTING PRECISELY AT 19:10

N24

I may have read your timings wrong with 'summer time', however please check to make sure.

There will be no difference between Paris time and UK time. UK time moved to GMT last week!

I cannot join in as I will be at my work.

You're right. I just copied some of the text from Higgins's watchalongs.

Re: Tuesday Nov. 3rd 19:00 GMT: Let‘s watch DR NO together

Will the LA and NY times change compared to the other times?

I thought so! I just edited my message too!

Re: Tuesday Nov. 3rd 19:00 GMT: Let‘s watch DR NO together

I notice you have edited your original post, but again, your timings for Paris and London are still out. they should both the same time (GMT) and will either be 2000 or 2100.

34

Re: Tuesday Nov. 3rd 19:00 GMT: Let‘s watch DR NO together

London is one hour earlier than Paris.

NYC and LA need to be corrected:

Re: Tuesday Nov. 3rd 19:00 GMT: Let‘s watch DR NO together

Thanks. I'm actaully really smart and quick on the uptake. I get things as soon as the issue is explained to me slowly and with short words  ajb007/lol
I'll fix it as soon as the other threads are re-opened by one of the Mods.

Re: Tuesday Nov. 3rd 19:00 GMT: Let‘s watch DR NO together

You need to change the times in the 1st post as well

Re: Tuesday Nov. 3rd 19:00 GMT: Let‘s watch DR NO together

Apologies N24. In winter I thought Paris was on the same GMT reading as London!

39

Re: Tuesday Nov. 3rd 19:00 GMT: Let‘s watch DR NO together

No24 I think you left out the bit about The GunBarrel
Thats the important thing with Higgins's method:
The dvds usually have several seconds of corporate logos as well as the overlong loading of the main menu
The thing is to get past the main menu, past the corporate logos, and Then hit pause just before The GunBarrel, to calibrate.
Then at exactly ten after everybody unPauses and lets the movie roll from the same spot at the same second

Re: Tuesday Nov. 3rd 19:00 GMT: Let‘s watch DR NO together

You're right. In the last week, and especially the last couple of days, my respect for Higgins has increased. He's still wrong about Dalton and his trainers are still ugly, though.  ajb007/shifty

Re: Tuesday Nov. 3rd 19:00 GMT: Let‘s watch DR NO together

By now it's probably most effective to go through that part at 19:00 tomorrow, I think.

It must be lonely for them. Even more surprisingly: all of China is one timezone. The countries directly to the south of China uses five timezones ....

Re: Tuesday Nov. 3rd 19:00 GMT: Let‘s watch DR NO together

Should we be drinking vodka martinis tomorrow  ajb007/martini , during DN?

Re: Tuesday Nov. 3rd 19:00 GMT: Let‘s watch DR NO together

Vodka martinis would be both apropriate and entertaining, but you know my beverage of choise .....  ajb007/biggrin

I prefer pepsi max, sometimes with lemon added and occasionally rum, preferably Captain Morgan.

Re: Tuesday Nov. 3rd 19:00 GMT: Let‘s watch DR NO together

I'm looking forward to tonight's viewing. As I wait for the start time, I'm rewatching a few of the special features on the Blu-Ray. I enjoyed rewatching the trailer narrated by Connery, although as my wife pointed out it's basically the entire film summarised by Bond, and not much held back.
