  • Likewise, I disagree with @Birdleson, but I have a lot of respect for him and his opinion was measured and self-aware.

  • Cool data. I definitely would have gone to see Spectre in theatres again.

  • If they put Bond on a train, generally speaking, it's a safe bet there will be some good Bond happening. Except maybe Octopussy. It's funny because I feel like people forget Bond fully quit being a spy at the end of Casino Royale in 1953. Anyw…

  • Every time EON releases/sells new merchandise for thousands of dollars, a spy loses his silenced PPK... Theory11's $15 Bond Playing Cards have been the best value Bond release in recent memory, IMO. And the Lego DB5s, so fun.

  • Feels inevitable doesn’t it? I doubt they’ll stay well away from any mention of the monarchy, though.

  • My experience upgrading from an Xbox One X to an Xbox Series X (lol) has been great from just a performance standpoint; I play on a 1080p monitor that does absolutely nothing fancy (thinking of upgrading at some point though).
