    I just wonder if he even enjoys acting anymore, and doesn't milk his ability just for the cash.

    Do an update on this as can't quite recall what I put before

    In no order of preference, I don't really have a 'favorite' film

    # Midnight Express (1978)

    # The Third Man (1949)

    # Ice Cold In Alex (1957)

    # Superman II (1980)

    # The Beach (2000)

    all very good titles that are always a few good hours spent

    @Baltimore_007, ahh, I love 'The Beach.' Such an underrated, highly unique movie. I haven't seen it in years.

    Watch Parker around 2:25. She's just stunned at how rude he's coming off.

    Casino Royale has to be in my top five now. I mentioned it before as a possibility, but I'm almost certain it is now.

    What made you change your decision?

    I watched it again on my current Bondathon. There are literally <30 seconds of the film I had any issue with whatsoever.

    @StirredNotShaken, I know how you feel. Definitely in my top three Bond films. What are those less than thirty seconds you have an issue with?
  • Posts: 2,400
    "Rolex?" "OMEGA." Worst product placement ever until Skyfall.
    Mathis expositing during the poker game.

    That's it. And the Mathis thing is a VERY minor gripe.
  • Posts: 6,396
    Yes I had a problem with Mathis explaining to the audience how poker works. Found it quite patronising. My other gripe would be the defibrillator sequence.
  • Posts: 2,400
    I liked the poisoning sequence. It was really well-filmed and I've always considered Vesper saving Bond to be necessary in order for him falling in love with her to be believable.
  • Posts: 6,396
    Oh the poisoning sequence is great. I don't have a problem with that. Love how it's shot when he stumbles into the toilet.
  • Posts: 2,400
    No but I like the defib sequence as well. I mentioned when Bhattacharjee sadly disappeared that the role he played in that scene was very memorable despite its insignificance.
  • Posts: 6,396
    It seemed to be to be a sequence that was included to break up all the "card playing stuff". Felt a bit like decision by committee:

    "Right then, we need some action here. There's too much poker. Any ideas? I know lets have Bond poisoned, then his heart stops. But don't worry cos he'll have antidote and a defibrillator in the glove box"

    It's a gadget that was written in and serves no other purpose but for that scene

    @WillyGalore, and THOSE are the gadgets that I hate. Those gadgets that can only be used in a very unique situation. I also love how Vesper runs up and knows exactly how to fix the defibrillator and save Bond.

    I couldn't agree with you more. It's the worst moment in the film (other than the "thank you for plugging our nice brand of watch").

    Cheers. Pleased to meet you acquaintance, @Creasy47. And a Brosnan fan, no doubt. I thought I would remain peerless.

    I didn't really know where to post this, but since School of Rock is a film I really love, I thought this thread would be a proper enough place:

    The Godfather
    Traffic
    Chinatown
    Casino Royale
    2001

    For some reason, I got through around five to ten minutes of 'Traffic' and then stopped. I'm not sure if it was out of a lack of interest or something else, but I need to get back to it and give it another shot.
