Heh! Not Crystal Palace I'm afraid :D
The thumbnail lured me in, though I will pass on this one.
Didn't you have a restraining order? :-P
Pierce will be there!
"The film is based on Victor Gischler’s Edgar Award-nominated novel, Gun Monkeys. It centers on Charlie Swift (Brosnan), who has worked for his aging mob boss Stan for twenty years, skillfully operating as a prolific fixer and efficient hitman. When a rival boss moves to eliminate Stan and his entire team, he fails in wiping the team clean. Now on his own, Charlie will stop at nothing to avenge his friend, and has no plans to leave anyone alive."
And the much-delayed The King's Daughter is getting released next year. What took so long?
Having now seen NTTD three times, and not any other Bond film in a year, I'm looking forward to revisiting the old ones. I think Brosnan gets to go first. A smooth operator:
Which prompts me to ask for a list of your favourite non-Bond Brosnan movies!
Tailor Of Panama
After The Sunset
This is a very good list. I haven't seen the first three yet but intend to. I'm especially happy to see Seraphim Falls mentioned. That was an intriguing, heavily symbolic quasi-supernatural western. I would add Mars Attacks! and The Matador to what you have here, and I'm hopeful Black Adam can join this list soon enough too.
THE NOVEMBER MAN
THE FOURTH PROTOCOL
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS
DEATH TRAIN aka DETONATOR
TAILOR OF PANAMA
A couple of these were actually television films. Still, whenever I need my Brosnan fixation satisfied, they do the job.
The kills of Dr. Kaufman and Elektra might just be my two favorites in the entire series.
Thomas crown affair
Which I even prefer over the Steve McQueen original (which I also love and have).
the tailor of panama
Brosnan nails the role perfectly.
Is extremely good as well. Jacky Chan and Brosnan really play off eachother really well.
I was suprised to see Thomas Crown Affair so little here in the last few posts.
This thread has prompted me to revisit some of Brosnan's non-Bond work. I just rewatched The Thomas Crown Affair. It really is an excellent film. I prefer it to the original as well. The original has the star power of McQueen and Dunaway but otherwise it's kind of an uninvolving film. McTiernan's version really crackles. I also just realized that Brosnan and Connery both played smooth art thieves caught up in games with female detectives-cum-love interests in 1999.
I'm glad to have been of service ;-)
That's funny. To me, he should never have been given the role at all!!
He at least looked the part, probably more so than any other Bond actor aside from Connery
Re-read the novels
Brosnan fits the basic template of cinematic Bond, but I don’t see Fleming’s Bond in Brosnan. For one thing, Brosnan is too smooth.
I have. Dont see it!
I'm going to +1 the TCA remake... I love that and The Matador. Probably my two favourite non-Bond Brosnan movies... Aside from Mrs Doubtfire where he's more the supporting actor :).
I also noticed your icon is back... and in colour!
