      Stuff the New World Order.
  • Sir Godfrey Tibbins, a fun sidekick for Bond, who is not above getting down and dirty, hiding in the stables with the horses. Played by the legendary Patrick Macnee who also is known for The Avengers (and I mean the REAL Avengers, not Marvel Avengers horseshit...), and Battlestar Galactica in the role of evil Count Iblis.

      A high point in a very poor Bond movie I Must say... only a few redeeming qualities in this one.

      Agree again. Macnee is the reason AVTAK is not dead last in my ranking. The Eiffel Tower and the Golden Gate bridge are highlights, the PTS too, the rest is pretty meh, except for anything with Patrick and Moore engaging in fun repartee.

      For myself I found the PTS derivative of TSWLM, the inclusion of The Beach Boys' "California Girls" I always found very very disrespectful.

      Tibbins' and Bond's hijinks together are the high point of the movie. The movie begins very strong, first 30-40 minutes I'd say.

      Also Zorin's main henchman, Scarpine, I thought was very effective, a solid henchman.

      The title sequence itself, fairly well done, I like the bits where Moore appears and shoots his gun, a very cool moment when he turns to the camera and shoots the red circles. The title song itself, I am not a fan of Duran Duran at all, but the song works thanks to John Barry's input co-composing the song. As to Barry's score, I find it not his best, just OK. The main action theme throughout is spectacular, and I like the mysterious music as Bond and Tibbins go underneath Zorin's estate to investigate horse steroids.

      Yes that piece of score when they are in the lab I love too. It sounds a bit samey to the OP score in parts though.
      The titles are indeed interesting with all the neon colors and such. Moore shooting the red circles is a highlight and the skiing silhouettes in black and blue.

      I love the string section that plays throughout the song. It gives it a very elegant sound to provide that extra Bond touch, especially needed in this case, since the Duran Duran sound is not traditionally Bondian.

      I also love the AVTAK score. Better than OP's for sure.

      I like a chest now and again...as long as there is treasure in it.
  • What do you think would be an appropriate celebration for the 50th anniversary of OHMSS in 2019?

      Surely the party could be decorated with an array of "gold balls".
