  • I really crave for the day La Vie En Rose makes an appearance in a Bond film, regardless of the era whether it's a period piece or bearing a contemporary setting.

      It actually was specifically made for the main protagonist in the novel I'm working on... Planning to later adapt it to a graphic novel.

      That's awesome. I must say, your "sixties-inspired fantasy-oriented" spy novel has peaked my interest.

      Many thanks, chaps!

      Although, it's been in development for six months now, it might get longer than expected to finish the entirety of the whole story. Won't rest until it's perfected.

      An alternative version?
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      Yep! Apparently, this one was proposed to the producers before the Lani Hall version was finished, but Michel Legrand threatened lawsuit over the use of a copyright he's licensed with.

      It's a very good song. But, it's a bit more suitable to an end credits sequence rather than the main title sequence.

    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      Indeed! There came many after it, but none of them ever came close to be on the same level of greatness as it was...

      Well, currently, I'm doing a "How I Met Your Mother" marathon since one of my friends told me it's a "Friends" rip-off, and now I'm on Season 6. Can't say she was wrong... But, I'm enjoying that, too.

      Who's your favourite 'Friend'?
    • jake24
      jake24
      Chandler, hands down. I can't say I ever cared for HIMYM.
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      Definitely Chandler!! :D Followed closely by Joey...

      The rest of the cast plays the ranks up every time.

      HIMYM is good. Barney is a damn good character who's basically a suit-wearing Joey with higher IQ by a wide margin. Good one.
    • jake24
      jake24
      IMO, the only TV show to match the sheer wit of Friends is "Two and a Half Men". That is before Sheen was fired.
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      Agreed. The Sheen era 'Two and a Half Men' was supremely great. After that, it went downhill.
  • For all those unaware. There's always the comic book medium to enjoy while you wait for an announcement on behalf of Eon Productions or the next novel to be released by Anthony Horowitz. The James Bond comics are easy substitutes for these and uniquely as they distinguish themselves so.

      Clark Devlin, hhmm... I suppose. But my top 3 games were made in that period. EA might have ended their run with a whimper, but for a time, it looked like they couldn't do any wrong.
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      Considering the weakest of their efforts were out in the open, they still are great in my opinion to what ever Activision tried to achieve, which I believe destroyed the reputation of the Bond gaming license. I did like 'From Russia With Love', but compared to 'Agent Under Fire', 'Nightfire' and 'Everything or Nothing', it was sort of a lackluster.
    • MajorDSmythe
      MajorDSmythe
      You'll have no disagreements from me on that. While FRWL might not have been a high point for EA, it was still better than anything Activision did.
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      Indeed. And the thing about FRWL is that it still introduced the players to unlock better gameplay achievements (regarding gadgets, hidden levels, outfits, guns, customization, etc) whereas Activision only produced one-way-corridor interactive movies in the vein of 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare'. Bond isn't a run and gun game where the system tells you what to do. A Bond game should let you discover your way in to the paths of the level leading to the next one. But, what can we do? We probably won't get another Bond game until 2020 at the earliest. And that's being generous.

      I wish though, whoever picks up the franchise license, goes back to the spirit of the EA Games James Bond entries and update them with diverse interactions. I certainly don't want another poor man's Activision... And I sincerely don't want a QTE-based game like what Telltale does.

    @ClarkDevlin did you love it when Kevin Costner steals the kebab, destroys those 3 guys outside, steals their van, and starts tripping to the music on the radio?
    July 2016
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      I laughed out loud at that scene! He just walks in, takes someone else's meal, picks up a can of coke, walks outside and simply tells those guys he's taking their van... And the rest is history. Haha! :D
    • DaltonCraig007
      DaltonCraig007
      I also really liked it when he walks in the Starbucks and orders something in french, and goes 'I speak Spanish, motherf*cker!' and the other client goes 'That's french, motherf*cker' and Costner proceeds to punch him in the face. Oh, and when he smashes the cactus in the evil woman's head, and then hits her several more times with a lamp!! And when he crashes one of the police cars chasing him and flips his middle finger at them!
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      I was going to mention that 'I speak Spanish, motherf**ker!' scene which amused me a lot. Or the scene where he says 'Cheers' to the pharmacist, then adds 'Who the f**k says 'Cheers'?' Good one! Yes, and I have to say I liked the evil woman a lot. For a reason, she reminded me of Violante Placido's character from 'Transporter: The Series' only in her evil form. I also liked how aggressive Costner's character was, constantly trying to attack the main villain even when held at a gunpoint. He tried to throw the axe at him. Lol! It's the sort of scenario where "you send a maniac to catch a maniac."

      I liked that he was starting to get rehabilitated and that he was given a purpose to live for, for the first time in his life.
    • DaltonCraig007
      DaltonCraig007
      I am really glad that Costner has always refused to do sequels to his films. That way we get a self contained story/character, and we get to imagine what will happen next for Jericho. (will he join the CIA like Oldman would like?)
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      I think he will join the CIA, seeing his character suffered through childhood trauma, he will join the agency for the sake of preventing the others from meeting the same fate. At least, that's how I'd like to see it.

    Hello, can you get in contact with that man Seb harvey?
    Maybe he has the script, who knows could be interesting.
    About the music, did you ever listen to the first part of that? Its from the composer Rich Douglas. He has some really great music too.
    Maybe it is still on the net.

      I don't think I have any connections with Seb Harvey, who wrote the script. I do have knowledge about Rich Douglas, yes. But, I've heard he's not composing or making arrangements for new Bond music any longer, though I might be wrong. I do believe he still has his own YouTube Channel.
