    Would it be ok to post some good pizza recipes on the Bond 25 Production Diary?

      I encourage it! Make sure you put it in bold so that those who only wish to read about Pizza recipes don't have to scroll through 300 comments.

      We could easily get 300 pizza recipes in there over the weekend.

      300 pizza recipes? You must have a very thick cookbook.

      I was thinking of posting ten of them thirty times over, on a loop.
    • jake24

      That would be in-keeping with the theme of the thread so, I say go for it! Meanwhile, I'll update the thread title and mislead people into thinking that you actually posted 300 seperate recipes.

    Update MGM never reached a deal to be bought out by Chinese company so they wasted all last year doing that then finding a distribution partner for bond 25 https://www.mi6-hq.com/sections/articles/bond-25-china-eyes-mgm-purchase

    According to this new the article, Bond 25 could end up in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Negotiations about shooting still taking place.

    When asked about a possible shooting of the movie, the croatian politician Andro Vlahušić answered: «James Bond is in an advanced stage of negotiations»

      This is what makes David Arnold the definitive successor to John Barry and his legacy to the Bond franchise.

      I love that stealthy tune. Don Veca composed a similar tune to that for the intended PS2 version of TWINE that was later reused for 'Agent Under Fire'.

    • jake24
      jake24
      Indeed. Lots of motifs from TWINE are heard in the AUF soundtrack. "Body Double" is arguably the most stealthy of Arnold's tracks, where Bond actually gets to do some spying.
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      Indeed! And love it particularly for that reason.

      He really got Arnold's style down perfectly.
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      I liked the ambient themes when everything is calm and spooky... But, the action-oriented tracks aren't really good. They're more random hit of notes that perfectly describe what I hate about the modern soundtracks. That also said, The James Bond Theme's lack of presence bothers me personally.

      Adding to that, however, Richard Jacques would be great for a Bond film composer.
    • jake24
      jake24
      Definitely. His score is well crafted, atmospheric, and catchy, but most of his action scoring is more "following the moment" rather than telling a story. Arnold's CR score is similar in that sense.
    • Murdock
      Murdock
      I like the action music. If the Bond theme was included in some of them it would have been amazing. It fits like a glove in SP's car chase.

    • ClarkDevlin

      A soundtrack that tells a story is nonexistent in the modern film music. All of them "follow the moment", and that's what bugs me to tell you the truth. Big time. It's one of the reasons I liked Arnold's TND best, and DAD the second.
    • Murdock
      Murdock
      Arnold's Brosnan era scores were top rate. I enjoyed CR's and QoS's as well but nothing beat his original 3 scores. I'd kill for that to return to the series after the sonic wallpaper we had in the last two.
