  • The new FRWL, AVTAK, GE and DAD arrangements are really good imo. Overall I appreciate the 'smoothness' they gave to most tracks - they feel less rushed and more majestic than the original recordings sound. Love the risks they took with OP. It's ver…

  • SPECTRE No dates are explicitly shown/stated in SPECTRE but it does open with the Day of the Dead parade and we have the 11 November Tangier boarding pass info from @QBranch, which both work perfectly together. Although I can't yet choose the par…

  • Just finished updating the films including Skyfall. I've added a breakdown highlighting life-changing events and important firsts for Bond. These events could be displayed more prominently when making the final interactive timeline. I'd like to know…

  • Skyfall This film barely featured any dates or times, so its place within the Craig Bond timeline is relatively unclear at the moment. The one date that's notable is the 1962 "50 year old Macallan," which puts Skyfall in the year 2012. Of course,…
  • Checked the podcast again and there's an after show on Moonraker that features unheard clips of their discussion. Only 26 mins so a bit more digestible than the full episode if you don't have much spare time. "Any movie that cuts to a reaction sh…

  • In terms of the Bond films I watch most often it would have to be these five: - You Only Live Twice. Not even remotely the best Connery Bond film but it's an easy watch with perfect atmosphere. - A View To A Kill. Just a very harmless film that …
  • Not sure where to put this but since there's no Tarantino thread... There was an episode this week on The Video Archives Podcast where co-host Quentin Tarantino was discussing Moonraker for the first hour of the show. I figured I'd share his main…
  • I think the point was that they wouldn't be talking about the CIA finding Le Chiffre's body had it been 2 years since it occurred. On the timeline above, one month would've passed since his death.

  • Quantum of Solace Didn't come across any noteworthy conflicting info during my rewatch of QoS. It seems to align with Casino Royale rather well. Yes there was the invitation saying 2008 but I think we've agreed to view that as an innocent typo. …
