    Those book covers only reminds me how much I need to check out The Avengers!

    My favorite is the one in the bottom left corner. Love the simplicity and the style of the lettering.

    That's some nice typography and design, right there! Minimalistic graphic design at it's best :-)

    It's the kind of feeling I try to bring into my own work, to offer something different from the heavily photoshopped posters of the current period.

    Heavily photoshopped posters don't seem to go away, do they. Luckily, current trends in graphic design (in general) tend to lean more towards minimalism - which, regarding movie posters, can be both good and bad.

    Are you a graphic designer? If so, we should talk. I'm going to school for that.

    I actually have noticed the look before, but never mad the connection until tonight. In CR, when Felix says, "Someone's in a hurry.", referring to Le Chiffre, the look Bond shoots him is a total Dalton look. Go back and check it out.

    I've always gotten that vibe, too. He pulls that look off well.

    Something I had not given much thoughts before: Bond 25 will be the last time there will be more Bond films with either Moore or Connery than all other actors combined (Lazenby, Dalton, Brosnan, Craig). By Bond 26, Moore & Connery will represent exactly half the official films (13 out of 26), and once we reach Bond 27, we will have, for the first time, more films without the 'Big 2' than films featuring either of them as Bond.

    Yes, quite true. It reminds me of the look that Dalton gives Saunders in TLD a couple of times, most notably at the Opera.

    Interesting trivia @DaltonCraig007. It's rather sad that it will take until B26 for that statistic to be no longer true. Hopefully someone competent gets control of this operation and starts making these films more regularly soon.

    Regardless, as you said, Connery/Moore will always remain the 'Big 2' for me at least no matter what happens going forward.

    Interesting statistic. Another sad statistic is that John Barry has only composed 11/24 of the films, slightly less than half. It goes without saying he injected magic into each film he was involved in, regardless of the quality of the film

    Wait, why does that police officer stop M's car in Skyfall? Surely he doesn't know theres a bomb about to go off...

    I assumed there was a convenient traffic incident blocking the road. Or an accident that Silva staged

    I was going to guess a bomb threat might've been called in, but then there wouldn't have been any casualties.

    I always assumed that there had been some threat given, via Silva, like a bomb threat.

    I actually hadn't even thought of it in full until now. I guess in the back of my head I had assumed the police got a report of a bomb in the area.

    I actually just put this in another thread, but thought it interesting enough to spread about a little bit.

    CASINO ROYALE (1967):

    -Bond comes out of retirement to become the new M
    -The code theory is essential to the plot (it even addresses Connery's Bond)
    -The Blofeld equivalent (Dr. Noah) turns out to be a relative of Bond's (his nephew)
    -Bond has a grown child that he had never met before
    -It is also the only film, to date, where Bond dies

    So all of these wacky ideas that have been proposed for, and some even put into, the EON films over the years were all developed and used in a movie 51 years ago.

    There is a good to fair chance that Boyle’s film involves a lost child of bonds

    I wouldn't mind it as much if it came 20 years following a straight adaptation of YOLT.

    I haven’t really noticed or though about this before but how many times has bond been shot. He’s shot in the leg in thunderball and twice in skyfall but are there in any other instances in the franchise?

    Casino Royale - James is human and goes for a "slash."

    "So as charming as you are, Mr. Bond, I will be keeping my eye on our government's money - and off your perfectly-formed arse."

    How otherwise would Vesper have seen Bond's arse (based on the filmed scene.)

    Sorry - as Bond fans we are all together - all races, religions, shapes, sizes, sex, rich, poor, able bodied, not so able bodied, some good at spelling, some not so good at spelling - so lets not get that personal if a person makes a mistake on a post, or get too frustrated at a comment. It might just stop someone joining us or posting something that might be extraordinary.

    Agreed. I notice misspellings and things as that's part of my profession, but I hope that doesn't prevent you or someone else from contributing to something as casual as a forum where the idea is to have fun in a community of people with similar interests.

    What annoys me more is someone who posts something is awful or great without elaborating, just "this sucks" or something along those lines.

    It's not about forgiving because a mistake is not a crime. I would not mention a regular grammatical error or typo from anyone here (yes, it happens to me as well), native English speaker or not, and I don't think my original post is or was anywhere near being "personal", let alone "that personal". It's just that I think as a sort of specialist fan board, we should know how to spell the central characters' names. Just like I get a bit of allergic when the occasional "Ian Flemming" pops up.

    Should anyone find me having a misconception of a character's name, I'd welcome being enlightened. I just don't see why anyone should take it personally.
