Out of the Blue

Dark Horizons offers more details on Quantum of Solace (thanks Ant). I am greatly looking forward to this, though I am disturbed by the characterization of Casino Royale as a "change of pace." This is not because it wasn't, as it was a clear departure from the earlier Bond films, but because of the implication that upcoming movies will be different. They even say Bond 22 will be more of a "classical Bond movie. There's a touch of Ken Adam (the production designer behind the giant villain lairs of the early Bond films) and '60s spy movie." This has me recalling it wasn't long after Tim Burton's Batman attempted to return a darker and somewhat more realistic feel to the character that Robin reared his wimpy head, and next thing we were watching Batgirl and Bat-cycles and the whole mess (one more movie and it would have said "POW!" on the screen every time someone got punched). Now I'm worried it's inevitable that we'll soon have Bond spewing puns as he runs around a fortress hidden inside a volcano while a heavily accented voice counts down to the world's imminent destruction.

T minus seven minutes and counting…

At one point, does a guy in the movie try and break off one of the sensors off of the back of the mask and the beam goes into his mouth?
Yep, although I think it was a woman. The movie was pretty bad either way, and I've been trying to forget it ever since. It's pretty sad that the following 3 Halloween movies were better, if only because of Donald Pleasance.

Shooting started a month ago, but the title was only just chosen, sounds like it's not the film of the story at all.

"Filming began earlier this month at Pinewood, the franchise's home since the 1960s. It's a direct sequel to 2006's "Casino Royale," beginning an hour after that film ends, with Bond devastated by his betrayal by true love Vesper Lynd."

Yeah. What is it with the marketing boneheads always ruining film series? Spidey 1. Great stuff. Spidey 2. You could see the commercialism creep in and the film get worse. Spidey 3? Absolute garbage.

When, if ever, will these boneheads understand that bigger is not always better. That keeping it simple and keeping it "real" is far more preferable. You can bet dollars to donuts they'll ruin the new Bond, Bats, and Supes trilogies too.

I don't know why, because it doesn't really fit your description very well, but reading your description made me think of "Videodrome"

HAHAHAHAHA I forgot about that movie. Notice if you watch the trailer, he has commodore, BETA, and Atari boxes on top of the tv. classic.

My mind works in weird ways:

This old ass movie has been haunting me....I can't remember the name of it - and I don't even remember how long ago I saw it (probably over 15 years ago?)

The movie was about a set top box you put on top of your TV (looks like a cable or satellite box), and you put on a mask (monster mask), to watch the show. Now, something goes HORRIBLY wrong and people turn into zombies while wearing the mask and watching the show - I think? I can't remember.

just in case someone doesn't want a spoiler....SST about the movie that will help jar memories:
I do know a beam shoots from the set top box into the mask.....


Does it ring a bell with anyone?

hehehe reminds me of "They Live!" - but without the sunglasses...bad headaches....and well, heh, they both had bad acting.

Makes me want to go rent some really cheasy movies this weekend. Like "The Stuff" hehehehehe.

(This was Post 7,000 heheheh were is that list?)

Bats, those gift cards burning a hole in your pocket?

Yeah, and I have some online gift certs that expire on 2.2.08 from when we bought a wash machine and new cell phones....so...yeah, use em or lose em! hehehehe

So I have those certs, about 100+ in gift cards, and a 12% off coupon for this weekend. Another no brainer.

(Looks like a sure fire way is to just get a box with 175W listed on it rather than the 203W and gamble....)

Hope this helps. Worse case you can have nin's as he's too busy waggling his wii-mote and DS to actually play it

Thanks bud.

I highly doubt that nin would ever give up the soft porn in Mass Effect.
