Finally saw it and I'm in the "good, nearly great, but not classic" camp. I too thought the linguistics stuff was interesting. I was actually a tiny bit disappointed that they went away from that at the ending---at some point they got a workable vocabulary and the story shifted to a different idea, one that we can't discuss without spoilers. I guess I understand; they got as much drama out of "what does this word mean? Do aliens use the pluperfect subjunctive?" as they possibly could.

Diamonds Are Forever (1971)



How can you top these two gay assassins :)


hah thanks, I was trying to remember what Bond these 2 were in when I made the thread. they are as camp as it gets


Awesome :)

Most of Sean Connery's bond movies happen in the 1960's and the flamboyant gay assassins were something that's not often seen in the 1960's. So I can see how it's hard to pinpoint.

Sean Connery wasn't supposed to play James Bond after George Lazenby. But 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' didn't do well in America box office and Bond producers came running after Sean Connery.


As for George Lezenby. I don't think he was a bad Bond, but I do think (as a bond fan) that the ending of On Her Majesty's Secret Service killed the fun of a Bond story. I do think it sort of moved people away from the box office (not George Lezenby as some would believe). I also believe On Her Majesty's Secret Service was slightly ahead of it's time, because the ending would had been an awesome setup - similar to Empire Strikes Back. Therefore On Her Majesty's Secret Service 'Part 2' would be an awesome Bond revenge flick [Sorry I don't want to spoil the ending of On Her Majesty's Secret Service if you had not see it - so I'm generalizing]


But they had not made a On Her Majesty's Secret Service part 2 [as far as I know because I only watched one Daniel Craig Bond movie]. I do think to win back the 'American' fans of Bond, humor was added to the story. This is why most of the campy Bond movies are from the 1970's and some in the 1980's (especially with aging Roger Moore)

I do recall, years ago, I was watching a Bond special. They were saying that they needed to add humor to Roger Moore because he didn't seem believable as Bond. I don't think it's true. Because Diamonds Are Forever (1971) was not a Roger Moore Bond film and the humor was equally strong in that movie too. (this is why I believe the humor was inserted because of the failed success of On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

For Your Eyes Only seemed to be the only exception because the story seemed more serous (even a little more realistic then a normal Bond film). 


I do agree Daniel Craig is missing that charm. But I'd always picture Bond was a guy that likes to get laid and only picked up what seemed interesting to women. Like knowing what is a good wine. The gadgets seemed especially important to him when it comes to scoring with chicks. It seemed to annoy Q but you get the feeling that Bond is a boy in a toy store. Bond also has a horseshoe up his ass. And most men fantasize to be Bond because his character is easy to relate.


Craig seemed all business and it's hard to relate.

I would think Vin Diesel would make a better Bond character then Craig.


Interesting, Kingsman: The Secret Service, seemed like a better Bond movie. If you had not seen Kingsman, you should check it out :)

Yes, dating site chat for awhile first. What I noticed first was her picture of getting stabbed by Jason Voorhees, so I knew I had to reach out to her. Probably wouldn't have worked had I just approached her randomly at a coffee shop, but the visual of that cracks me up.

Ah, I think that would be Josh then.

Thanks for checking out our other episodes, too. We really have a blast talking about them.

There are only two reasons why I want to see this film.

The first is Donnie Yen, one of the best Hong Kong action stars and over 50 years old, kicking a$$ in a major Hollywood movie.

The second reason is that this was shot on the Arri Alexa 65, which is a simply fantastic new digital cinema camera.

Donnie's character will undoubtedly die.  Not just because that is the fate of most Asian characters in Hollywood movies, but because no one from the team that stole the Death Star blueprints survived.

This was the scene moments before LilCerberus admitted he didn't drink anymore and requested a cola. Charges are pending.

This was the scene moments before a stampede at the men's room...

This was the scene moments before a drunk driver in a monster truck came barreling through the front entrance. Charges are pending.

This was the scene moments before a man in a pirate costume descended from a trapeze. It was all part of the entertainment, until he knocked over someone's beer. Charges are pending.

This was the scene moments before LilCerberus showed up with a hot dog roller and an American style of kielbasa. Charges are pending.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
