"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…"
So last year I decided to make a list of daily activities and reminders, which has worked out quite well for me. It started after I came across an article on AoM about a 15minute morning workout. Anyway the break down is as follows.-15 Minute morning workout.http://www.artofmanliness.com/2013/02/28/mornin-bodyweight-workout/-a reminder to take my vitamins-a reminder to quit smoking-a breakdown of the books to…See More
"If that is the case, you should talk to him, not her. He seems emotionally dissatisfied with her, there is a clear problem here. Maybe the relationship has withered too far much and they just can't bring themselves to end it, but that causes…"
"So sayeth every do-nothing hanger-on offspring in history. If he's all that good a father, he will eventually. Even if he's not, he won't live forever. Start looking for that sugar-daddy early. They like…"
"In response to both Daniel and Joe's input...
I know that there are problems brewing up between them. Though I know that she can be a witch toward him sometimes, he does nothing to help himself in that instance.
He impulsively lies to her…"
"In all seriousness, it boils down to this:
What do you value more: your actual relationship with your best friend or a potential relationship with his girlfriend?
If it's the former, whether or not you suspect there's something…"
