Image Chiller time in 3 months with Tanya. Thirty-five years ago she was a Bond girl. Fifteen years ago we saw her there and my friend spent $30.00 for her autographed picture and got a cheek kiss out of her to boot :!: Time flies when you are having fun :!: Image

Oh, absolutely. Classic sound.
Hans Zimmer choice I am pleased with, Billie Eilish... Eh. That blatant wannabe different/I am soooo depressed persona? I get she is a big deal right now but I can already imagine her "mysterious" whispering. Can't say my expectations are high although I guess she could pleasantly surprise.

Strange sad news

Those personal aircraft especially helicopters are maintenance intense. A lot of owners sell off right before high dollar repairs

zimmer is not a bad choice, weird to fire and hire literally as they are supposed to be rolling the film out.

Eillish maybe it’ll be good but it’s seems a stretch to have it fit the bond image but it’s been shot to hell already by Craig so it could be the best thing about the movie

It was discussed here just a few days ago how Broccoli would make sure EYE-Lash would win at the Grammys------well she won not 1,not 2, not 3, but 4 awards, and in classic Cr-egg style she had to be bleeped out of her curse words accepting them :!: What a joke :!: Her brother Finneas said they do songs about depression-----suicide-----and climate change :!: :hair: Broccoli will feel the first two shortly once the egg-head leaves. The dumbing down of talent has sunk to new lows. How can society embrace this garbage? If she was on The Voice none of the judges would turn their chairs around :!: Broccoli accomplished her mission. Is an Academy award for best song next? You bet it is :!:

Babs is a opportunist I doubt she has any influence over those awards and I doubt she helped promote eillish. Babs and more likely Craig probably got the inside scoop that she would be a sure thing to win this year and did their best to latch on to the singers rising star.

I doubt the Grammys even factored into her choice. Eilish is a hugely popular artist, awards or no awards. I don't think the Grammys have the same prestige that the Oscars do for movies. Within the industry, perhaps, but not to the general public.

I do think the awards potential captivated Babs and Craig, but the reason they chose eillish is popularity overall. I doubt eillish fans know what a James Bond movie is.

Billie Eilish has stated that she has Tourette syndrome and synesthesia and has experienced depression :!: Her brother Finneas said at Broccoli's Grammys last night that the two of them like to do songs about suicide and depression--------how sadistic and ironic is it that Broccoli would choose this 18 year old to write and perform a song entitled NO TIME TO DIE :?: :!: :hair:

years ago, there were stories about apple and amazon wanting to buy bond. Not mgm at that time.

MGM cashing out is only a matter of time. Partly because babs has no head for business, mgm almost went bankrupt twice because babs couldn’t make a movie on schedule (2004 & 2010), if they go bankrupt the bond rights probable go back to Saltzman’s family, and the studio loses billions in its value

MGM selling out before the next 5 year hiatus from bond makes sense, right now they can claim potentially billions in value because of the possibility bond makes skyfall money, it will not but mgm can sell the hope

Ben Whishaw has said that NTTD will tie into all the previous Craig films, in case you thought SPECTRE didn't contain enough tedious retconning.

I came across this little gem while researching, if you can get past the apologetic tone, it's a pretty good insight into Babz' psyche.

So, should we expect "The author of all your pain 2.0" line?
