As most here are likely aware, the great James Bond reviewer Calvin Dyson is also a member here on the MI6 forums, and just yesterday he posted a video asking for votes in a film contest he had entered. His stop motion film The Bride of Vernon needs your votes, and if Calvin wins plenty of great honors will come his way, including increased word of mouth for his film and a possible film career. His video about the contest is here:



And you can place your votes here; it only takes seconds:

Voting ends this Friday, so please get them in. He is currently in the lead, and the gap is growing larger and larger between him and the second place entry as time goes by. With your votes he can win and his life could be changed forever if he gets a chance to enter the film industry when word of his film spreads!

To any and all that vote, thank you!

    One thing I am curious about is if you need a Facebook account to vote, which I don't have. I voted a while ago, but I don't know if it worked or not. The number was at 155, but didn't change until some time after, though it might have just needed time to refresh itself.

    Thanks to all those that have answered the call, and so fast! I know Calvin will appreciate this. :)

    I dont do Facebook but I'm there in spirit, if not in actual votes.

    Cal is head and shoulders the best Bond reviewer on the web and I like nothing more than to stick his reviews on in the background while I'm having a cheeky game of FIFA.

    The Wizard would never stoop to writing 'lol' but Cal's ejaculation of 'F**k off Smallbone!' during his Moneypenny ranking video did indeed elicit an audible chortle I have to say.

    I think my vote still counted, so by all means go ahead and at least click vote. If it doesn't work at least you tried. :)

    Well done Sir although having watched it on youtube I can't help feeling a lawsuit from Saul Bass might be heading your way over those opening titles!

    Very well done Calvin. It's nice to know this forum played a part, however small, in the victory.

    Well done Calvin. You deserve it for making such a charming little film. I feel bad for forgetting to vote (especially since I have had a few conversations with you on facebook) but nonetheless I'm glad you won. I always look forward to your new videos and smile when I see you have uploaded one. Loved the Dr No re-review and look forward to future ones.

    P.s. Johnny English is on ITV 2 as I type this. Its pretty naff.
