    It was one of the better fights in the series. An energy explosion and a claustropobic nightmare at the same time.

    Just goes to show how much work, staging and prep goes into such a short sequence. One of Hamilton's greatest accomplishments as a Bond visionary, and one of the most dynamic fights ever filmed, with nothing else like it around.

    Ive always felt that elevator fight was a bit...meh. Certainly in comparison to what came before it.

    Just learned of the passing of Anne Golon, writer who, with her husband Serge, created the character of Angélique, heroine of a series of historical novels set during the reign of Louis XIV. The first volumes of this saga were adapted in a series of very popular movies in the sixties, with Michèle Mercier as Angélique.

    95 is not a bad age to go.

    RIP George A. Romero
    Sad to learn this, I've enjoyed many of his films and I loved the
    original Day of the Dead.

    They'll have to chain him in his coffin, then.

    Yes, I know, but somebody was about to do it, no ? Anyway, Night of the Living Dead was really a frightening movie. A masterpiece of horror, even. Rest in Piece, Mr. Romero.

    If you can.

    RIP, Mr. Romero. Kicked off an entire genre with a film that's still so incredible and terrifying to this day.

    So sad to hear about Romero. Night of the Living Dead is one of my favorite movies. RIP.

    That s funny.
  • Oh man, RIP George Romero. I love all three of his first Living Dead films dearly. This one cuts deep. Will be revisiting all his films now for sure. A true icon of horror cinema.

    I often feel he was the only one to understand the genre he had created.

    I've been avoiding watching zombie movies for the past few weeks. Now I feel like a right bastard.

    The legendary Martin Landau has passed away at the age of 89:

  • A wonderful actor. I'm somewhat ashamed to admit he's an actor whom I would chronically over the years mistakenly assume was no longer with us. Likely because of his tremendous turn as Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood. Now he really has passed. A long life and many wonderful performances left for posterity.

    Wow Martin Landau too.

    RIP Martin Landau. Big loss; wonderful actor. This one hurts.
  • Martin Landau's warm-up (sort of) to playing Bela Lugosi: Playing a Transylvanian villain on The Man From UNCLE. He spoke in the same accent that he'd use decades later in Ed Wood.

    RIP, Martin Landau. I will never forget Landau's verbal attack on MTV's Kennedy at the premiere of Mission Impossible. Kennedy basically asked, "What brings you here this evening?" Landau, of course, had starred in the original TV series and, in a tirade, let her have it. The gist of his message was, "If you're going to be an entertainment reporter, do your $#@! homework!" LOL

    NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS are two of my favorite films.

    Ed Wood, North by Northwest, and The Majestic are my favorite Landau films.
  • edited July 2017 Posts: 4,742
    North by Northwest for me. Of course, I only knew that gentleman through Mission Impossible and Space 1999, but I liked him in both roles.

    Edit : plus, I learned relatively recently that he was the father of Juliet Landau. Yes, his daughter is a vampire (and a Time Lady, but only in the audios from Big Finish).

    Wow, terrible news. Romero's first three Living Dead films are among my favourites. RIP, Mr Romero :(

    Martin Landau also a great actor. Remember him vividly in Cleopatra. RIP

    What's tragic about Romero is that he died of cancer. Far scarier than any zombie invasion.

    Dawn of the Dead is one of the few films that changed my life. I can't think of an earlier memory of a proper horror film that changed my view of what the medium could achieve - that a horror film could be about something other than gore and thrills.

    He also seemed like a genuinely lovely bloke - in fact, so many horror movie creatives seem to be gentle souls, Very sad to hear of his passing.
