You don't think I came up with an original moment?
When I saw Skyfall, the audience cheered when the
Oh, I thought you didn't want a Bond film to rely on past references and be its own film. Change your mind?
I'd rather see a reference to the TSWLM ski sequence.
Exactly! That would bring a tear to my eye.
Yes! That would be cool.
Perhaps the Bond anthology on the bookshelf, just behind M. Only if you look close, no obvious zoom tricks.
Michael! I see him exiting his role soon..
"it's been years since I've been under a Christmas tree in Turkey, literally. "
Bond is walking with Felix just chatting in downtown London, Bond steps in a puddle and gets his pants wet. Felix says"Look like you've caught yourself a jinx. " Bond replies, " Oh no Felix, Iv'e had a jinx before and it felt much better than this".
But, I was genuinely disappointed to see the gunbarrel, back at the end again, although I kind of knew what to expect before time. Maybe they can go back to tradition and place it at the start next time where it really belongs, but don't hold your breath on that
I didn't even quite understand the above joke or attempt at humor, but maybe I'm just tired
As Dalton himself said - "better make that two"
Tatiana: "Am I as exciting as all those Western girls?"
Bond: "Once, when I was with M in Tokyo, we had an interesting experience"?
Well, I want to witness that experience. In fact, I'd love to see Bond in Japan again sometime soon. I don't particularly want to see M anywhere other than MI6 for a while- I'm just using the above dialogue as an example of this: instead of having a reference to a past film, a past film can give the illusion of a reference to a future film. After all, continuity is to be disregarded in the Bond realm.
In the subtitles it says Anne, not M.
Fine example and a great piece of writing. It makes you wonder too ...also it kind of shows a male to male bonding relationship between M and Bond as if their good friends as well. That scene did bring a smile to my face.
As for my posts above, I was merely joking and would never suggest them to be actually used.
The subtitles must be wrong, It sounds too much like M coming from Connery's voice
Oh, okay. It is Anne- not M. Thanks for that info. To me, it sounded like he said 'M', plus M is rather quick to turn off the equipment, leading me to think he actually got up to some mischief in Tokyo. ;) Also, several sites claim that 'M' is what is actually said. Either way, my above example still applies, and could be a different take on how references are used in the films.
EDIT: Just did a bit of research, and it seems there are versions of FRWL with different subtitles, which can say either 'M', or 'Anne'. Weird, huh?
However a nice reference can be naming the Ark Royal as Bond ship in the Royal Navy.
By the way, is that in the original text by Fleming, or created for the film?
M is clearly taken aback when Bond brings up this tidbit of information.
