I must say,that in my first ,and possibly last Dalton double...(its a bank holiday here in GB so im doing this)i think he delivers the 'Bond,James Bond line really well....and then cocks the final line up (unlike the trailer)...ok...on we go...i know i will love LTK later so i will persevere !!
TLD is still in my bottom 3...im willing it to be more ,but long standing members like DD and Benster and Nackers know i cant seem to cross that bridge..!!!!

    But he looks like Bond ,totally,how he would be in film and books...

    THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS has steadily fallen in my rankings over the years. After an excellent PTS, a solid Fleming scene (from the short story), Necros' assault on Blayden House, and some other strong moments, it begins to flatten. When we get to Afghanastan, I usually become bored to irritation.

    Having said that, last night I had an all around good experience with the film, even, if not loving, not minding those later acts.

    Damn the Blayden safehouse scene is good,as @birdleson says...it really upsets me being a Brit...but it is damn good...TLD is rising here...i think its an older Bond fan film .....so far i'm quite surprised ,pleasantly,and with TD,he is changing,in confidence,becoming the novel Bond rather than the film one though,if that makes any sense..

    And as for John Barry's soundtrack...when did he ever let us down....beautiful score.

    Nah ,im losing interest again...this happens everytime with TLD...it wont be the same with LTK next up...long way to go still though in this one....i think a simple Bond villain would do it...this script would have made a good Bond novel rather than a film....anyway lets see...
    TBH its all glitz and glamour and they have arrived in Austria but Dalton has done Jack shit,the whole film has done jack shit...

    I must admit that Saunders death at the fair and Bond confronting Pushkin are 100% Bond ,book and film...this is where Dalton beats all other Bonds......oh shit John Terry alert...

    That's usually what happens to me. On the other hand LTK seems to always get better. I really didn't care for if at all in '89. Like most I remember think: Cheap Television production.

I dont do double bills or marathons ,and the way tonight is going i wont do it again....i know what is to come and at least DAD was entertaining....

    You get run down before I do. It's after he's drugged that I fall out.

    LTK is awesome.....i love this film....Bond is about to kick Krest's arse.....

    My only problem with Krest is that they didn't save that great character for a full adaptation of THE HILDEBRANT RARITY.. Maybe in this reboot universe.

    aaah that is a brilliant point @birdleson....but Zerbe does him justice.....this is so much better than TLD...:LTK is so in my top 6 Bond films ,its just needs a pipe and slippers,its going nowhere...Dalton IS James Bond in this film...

    Dalton's stupid accent is getting on ones wick....he is Welsh not from Lancashire...and i think my Special Edition DVD's cant keep up with modern TV...its not clear...

    TLD perhaps gets disengaging towards the end like most Bond films, however it has many excellent moments throughout including the end fight on the plane. Pushkins scenes, safehouse, car chase, etc so many fantastic scenes which make it my no 1 Bond film.

    LTK has good pacing but does have a cheap feel to it. Tanker chase is a highlight. No Barry score is obviously a downer but doesn't distract as much as other non Barry entries

    I have a fondness for both but while TLD is 1, LTK is in the middle only because it doesn't feel like a Bond film like the higher ranked ones do

    Jesus. The DAD love continues unabated. Now we've got people who prefer it to TLD.

    Is there some sort of 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' scenario going on here where people are being turned one by one into DAD fans? Head for the hills people in case you are next!

    I have noticed that Dalt's pronunciation of "fast" is different in LTK than TLD

    TLD: "we're losing fuel,farst"
    LTK: "hospital! Intensive care where you'll be if you don't get out of here faast"

    His accent in LTK is awful and quite puzzling.

    It's completely different to how he spoke in TLD.

    I agree his accent fluctuates in LTK.
    It's not as bad as this one :))

    Good grief that's painful! Not sure what's worse, he's singing or Mae West's acting....

    Wish I could unsee that...!

    I would pay good money to hear @barryt007's version of "Calendar Girl," even sans lyrics.
