"Hello, im new to this group and if anyone wants to buy cigars in bulk i have found thompson cigar auction is a good place to buy them. It works like ebay and the prices are usually better for most cigears that i have found."
"I have to concur. For years I was not fond of Timothy Dalton's Bond at all. I must admit, however, that I believe his movies age wonderfully. Moreover, to your point, I went back and reviewed his two films and it seems to me that he was doing…"
"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…"
"I had a great Arturo Fuente the other day that one of my buddies gave me. He likes to dip the tips of his cigars in Macalllan 18, which I hadn't had before but it gave it a great flavor to the actual cigar and to the smoke. Anyone who really…"
"Mainly comes when there is a change towards mainstream for the fandom. D&D took off hugely in the last 3 years thanks to Game of Thrones, Critical Role, and other shows that have vastly increased the number of people getting into the hobby. Same…"
"Understandably? Why understandably? I can think of plenty of sub-cultures in similar situations that nonetheless welcome noobies so long as the latter demonstrate a certain respect in regards to the sub-culture itself."
"I have always been on the skinny side. I just end up with an extra layer on. It may just be a simple fact that you need a few extra layers.
As to friends drifting away. I hit that when my son was born. All my friends did not…"
There is also, understandably, a culture of exclusion in most fandom-type groups, against great numbers of incoming "fans." Nobody wants their hobby invaded by poseurs and wannabes. This is exacerbated when those wannabes not only think…"
"I admit I don't know anything about that. But the movie, on its own, was simply terrible. Not terrible because it was cramming feminism down anyone's throat, though, because IMO that never happened at any point in the movie. It was just…"
"With GB, the politics was in the choice of director and the casting, and in the extra-curricular statements and press. Not in the script. Mostly. It certainly wasn't an "assumption", though. It was said outright.
