"I had a Isla del Sol (by Drew Estate) the other day that I bought from a Cigar/Coffee shop. It is a mild, sugar-tipped and infused with coffee, which made for a very interesting flavor. At about 3/4 through, it tasted more like a regular…"
"I know Dalton is not Popular, but as someone who has scene all incarnations of bond, including one where he was american, and has read and re-read all of the books. I really think that Dalton's Bond was the closest to what Ian Fleming…"
"I appreciated how closely Goldfinger stuck to the book.
Then again, Maybe the producers just used up the better books early and had to rework the other titles. "The Spy Who Loved Me" took place entirely in some roadside motel, if I recall…"
"She was special, by damn.
I give Roger Moore props; according to the commentary on the FYEO DVD, he said something like "Please don't make me seduce that child onscreen," concerning the skier Bibi who threw herself at Bond. Moore…"
"Yeah - an invisible car? Changing the villain's race from Korean to Anglo with a lengthy and agonizing DNA "transplant"?
A great Bond that never was is Clive Owen. He's more in line with Fleming's conception than is Craig,…"
"As Brosnan was my first Bond, I hold a certain place for him. But I have to agree about Die Another Day. I think Brosnan did fine as playing the role, but the writing and directing ruined the film. I think they went down the wrong path when they…"
"Die Another Day indeed bordered on being an exploitation film with a 1950s comicbook plot, and Halle Berry stole the show with her girl-power kungfu moves and cheesy one liners that should have remained in the Moore era! Nice set of legs, mind..…"
"I'm with you there - thought Dalton was absolutely the right guy for the role, even if the flicks took a wrong turn. There was a canine quality to him that made Bond a kind of juggernaut, the way Connery was. And Dalton was a fine actor,…"
"I wouldn't call them the best in terms of plot, direction, effects and general artistic merit.. but the two Dalton films (The Living Daylights and License To Kill) strike me as amazing films. It showed the jaded, vengeful and renegade aspect of…"
"My slogan would be "If nominated I will not run, if elected I will not serve." General Sherman had it right, that job is the worst. Just look at any of our past few Presidents. About 50% of the country defends you even if…"
"While I appreciate your candor, this is not the place for this. Our beneficent dictator has asked that we keep such discussions off of the main forum. They are more than welcome in The Great Debate group, and there are already quite a few…"
I will start off with a subject which gets most people into a heated debate. Politics. I would like to hear your slogan for running for POTUS, and what your key points would be to increase the intellectual aspects of our school systems, the military budget on how to us it elsewhere, and on punishments for anyone, ANYONE trying to undermine the constitution.Here is my slogan. Equality, Freedom, and Logic. Equality is what brings Freedom; this is Logic. The moment we cease to be illogical is the…See More
"Not really a truck (although my fiance calls it a truck, for some reason), but i drive a 2012 Jeep Liberty Sport. Westin grill guard and skid plate, Mopar tow hooks, Reese tow hitch, looking to put some bigger A/T tires on it."
"When I was racing dirt oval mini-stocks we converted a 1971 Cadillac Hearse into a tow vehicle. We mounted a cabinet toolbox on the casket trolly and put a long enough tongue on the trailer to allow the hearse door to open with it attached. When we…"
