Isn't bond advertised and has advertised for its impressive stunts before cruise was doing all these stunts? So climbing a mountain in for your eyes only isn't impressive? A mountain is higher then a building. @CraigMooreOHMSS
Why are you putting words in my mouth (words that have no reflection of what I've written) instead of just saying what you feel yourself?
I don't go and see Bond films solely for stunts. As has been pointed out - the early films didn't have them, and they're regarded as classics.
That would depend on the respective mountain and building.
Ah got it ok @mtm I own both as well I want to enjoy both but it keeps being made into a competition.
I guess what you mean? About how i feel? Im confused its not you sorry if i seem kind of combative or kind of thorny i want to enjoy both but my brain wants to make it a competition. Oh ok They did have stunts just not as impressive ohmss has some good stunt work. Well this mountain in the video is higher then Burj Kalifa again I'm sorry for being combative. @CraigMooreOHMSS of course Roger Moore isn't doing the stunts but still the stunts of moonraker with the cable car are pretty good.
That's a very good sequence too, @HitchBondUSA :)
Yep. That's my thinking as well. I'll be sad when there isn't someone like Cruise around to do the things he can do. Many use it as a stick to beat him with, but that has always struck me as petty.
I've always been there day one for both but there's numerous other reasons why I am a Bond fan and why I will likely be a Bond fan forever as opposed to only being a Mission Impossible fan while Tom Cruise is doing them. But for now, I'm just savouring both of them while I can! :)
Sorry to run this thread off the rails a bit there but I love that one so much.
I don't want to make it a competition:) but like I said my brain does and Its giving me a headache me I thought I could enjoy it all it doesn't help that the media or PR team wants a stunt war. I guess it's no different then people trying to make out who is better a good example the Beatles vs the rolling stones or Michael Jackson vs Elvis. @CraigMooreOHMSS I like all that music.
Oh ok yeah same with me all you said there :) @CraigMooreOHMSS @Creasy47
They are thrilling to me the stunts done from like the late 60s to the end of the 80s were incredible and they did it back in the dinosaur days with no computers or technology that what's most impressive they don't have the technology like today all skill the bonus features on the blurays go through it all moonraker the stunt man all most fell to his death doing the cable car fight. they wouldn't have the actors do the stunts because it would cost too much and risk death sad to say that they value a movie stars life over a stuntman but that's the business Tom Cruise is just crazy if he didn't do a stunt he would have a stuntman do it that's thier job. @Since62
Yeah, I think FYEO has a few of the best action/stunt scenes in the whole series (although I don’t really include the rock climbing in that: it doesn’t really do anything for me). A lot of them are slightly arbitrary to the plot- I think, say, the ski chase is better than the one in OHMSS, but in OHMSS it’s way more tense because he must get away- but they’re still excellent.
I don't think that's really a fair comparison. I know what you mean, and in part, I do agree with you. But you're comparing the 60's Bond films to Mission Impossible. One stunt on the newer MI films, probably cost more than the entire budget of any of the early Bond films.
But at the end of the day, i'm a Bond fan, and not really an MI fan. I have all 6 MI films on DVD, as well as the 88 tv series also on DVD, but that's it. My Bond memorabilia dwarfs what I have of MI, many many times over.
Does not sound good, hope he pulls through.
To quote OHMSS, he had lots of guts.
Though some of the IMF agents are clearly not American nationals, so it appears they’re not selective when it comes to their agents.
So they can come from anywhere to be recruited for the imf? And do they go through multiple directors of the imf?
Yeah it’s weird. The closest we got was Alec Baldwin, but then they immediately kill him off in a cheap manner. Jeremy Renner was supposed to get killed off in the beginning of FALLOUT, but good on Renner because he turned it down.
I think the IMF is a kinda off-the-books CIA operation in the first one and then vaguely DOD (U.S. Department of Defense) I believe. Sometimes there's a director of the IMF, like with Laurence Fishburne's character in the third movie, and sometimes I believe they refer to the director of the CIA, but I don't think one has ever been cast or shown up on screen.
