    Things I learned watching CR '67 (well, someone has to do it) :

    1) Never has the expressions "Too many cooks spoil the dish", and "Two captains -or more- on the same ship, you sink it" been more true.
    2) Sorry, Mr. Belmondo, but "Merde" doesn't translate as "Ouch". He was probably using a bowdlerized lexicon.
    3) "The Look of Love" should have won that Oscar.
    4) American paratroopers should change their war cry. The joke is too obvious (and done better in "Aladdin and the King of Thieves").
    5) Whatever you do, don't watch the movie in french. You'll escape the voice of Mireille Matthieu that way.
    6) The chase between Evelyn Tremble and Le Chiffre here is even shorter than the one in CR '06. In fact, it's non-existent.
    7) Smersh is consistant with where they get their milk (see TLD to see what I mean).
    8) Deborah Kerr looks like she had a lot of fun doing this movie.
    9) Mata Bond, the daughter of Moneypenny ? I want some of that youth fountain.
    10) The spy school got the same designer as "The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari".
    11) I'd hate to pay the bill for that taxi ride from London to Berlin.

    More later.

    "No thanks, mom, I want to watch Dora the Explorer" would certainly have been a very different way to end Craig's run.

    “I want to tell you the story of Bond, James Bond.

    Chapter one: he comes to find me in my office to tell me your grandfather ate a fucking gun…

    Then I get kidnapped by a man who gouges out peoples eyeballs with his thumbs.

    Chapter two: sex and violence on a train…”
  • Perhaps she should have said, "Let me tell you about a man named Bond...James Bond...when you're 13."

    "Very hard to know what to say, but I thought we should gather and remember. And I… I thought this was appropriate.

    'We did it!'

    To Dora. To Dora. To Dora.

    To Dora.

    Alright. Back to work."

    To be fair, it was violence, then sex.

    My turn :

    56. Apparently, in Italy, you can take a train without a ticket.
    57. All right, raise your hand if you put a mode AM DB5 in an aquarium because of that shot in the title scene.
    58. Apparently, Dr. No and MI6 get the same supplier for their anti-radiation/bilogical danger suits.

    59. Like Drax, Madeleine knows her Oscar Wilde.
    60. Funny, I would have thought she would be more of a Proust girl.
