Favorite Bond Movie: Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, The Living Daylights, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies.
Favorite Movies: There are many to tell, but I prefer something that has a great storyline with loads of escapism and fantastic performance with over-the-top elements which would be pleasing. Action is the main genre I follow, and the spy genre would second that.
Location: Somewhere, strangling Barbara Broccoli.

OSS 117: Red Alert in Black Africa, set to come out in France on the 3rd of February 2021, and presumably later that year in Northern America (hopefully!) and the rest of the world. Jean Dujardin will reprise his role as the titular character, whose unaging spy (like the Bond of old) is now dealing with a threat in Kenya in the 1980s. Filming commenced three days ago with director Nicolas Bedos at the helm, replacing Michel Hazanavicius who left due to creative differences. Screenwriter Jean-Francois Halin once again penned the script.

I can hardly wait for this EuroSpy parody! :D

Anyone here planning on seeing Tenet? It looks like Nolan's most blatantly Bondian movie yet, albeit with a Nolanesque mindbending twist. I want to see it, but I think I'll give it a week, in the hope that the crowds will have died down a bit. You know, social distancing and all that.

Not in theaters , probably buy it digital release. We did buy bill and Ted 3 haven’t watched it yet. I’m curious how those numbers work out.

Just got back from watching it. Quite enjoyed it, though I'm still not sold on Robert Pattinson as the next Bond, despite it being basically his audition for the role. I'm starting to cool on the idea of Christopher Nolan directing a Bond film, too. He can handle action and suspense, there's no doubt about it, but his sound mixing that renders much of the dialogue inaudible is apparently a deliberate directorial choice, one that makes following the plot harder than it needs to be. In an auteur piece he can just about get away with it, because you can still admire the cleverness of his conceits, but I think a Bond movie would largely rob him of that.

The new Bill & Ted movie has had terrible reviews. I was never really convinced that this film needed to exist (I enjoyed the originals, but they were products of their time), and the reviews have done nothing to change my mind. File under "might watch if it comes on TV in a few years and I've got nothing better to do."
