Very good. Thanks DB. It’s hard to capturer what he meant to us fans but I think it’s a great tribute. For my family he’s 007 and Henry Jones sr, actually we like most of his films kind of a family thing we had growing up.

National television is giving us no less than three Sean Connery movies tonight.
Apparently the director of The Name of the Rose first declined Connery for the role of a monk... Until he forced himself into his office and asked if he could read ONE LINE of the script. And he got it.

BBC2 here in the UK showed a Connery tribute doc, but I only found it by accident when I tuned in for the programme it replaced. Not convinced that's really the best way to honour his memory.

Nicely done. I don't think I could have found the words to say it half as well Benny. Despite hoping Sir Sean would grace the world with one hundred years or more long ago I tried to find the kinds of words which would be fitting knowing Sir Sean's might someday pass on, if so this site would need to offer a decent tribute, respectful to his family and friends and something us fans need as well.

Thank you sir. I still don't feel I did the man justice, but what do you say about a man who embodied a character who touched the lives of so many people, as well as a wonderful actor in his own right.

Hopefully, they will have time to edit out any "topical" references, which by October will seem as dated as the "don't ask, don't tell" joke in TND. Or was it TWINE, I can't remember .

As always would love to hear thoughts, since I don't have an editor I rely on your feed back to tighten these things up.

290 million dollars and counting huh, DB? A ludicrous amount of money but I know it's the standard for modern blockbusters. However in this COVID-ridden world I can't possibly see them making that back at the box office.

I wonder how much of that will go straight into Danny's pocket.

I enjoyed the rant and the spelling, grammar, etc. all seemed to check out, from what I could tell, anyway. :up:

290 is the rumor Acid, which would make it 40 mil higher than SPECTRE's listed astronomical cost. Will they make that back? I highly doubt it, this train wreck was destined for the slag heap pre-Covid due to the laughable promotion of "famle007," "tampons" and all around "wokeness."

Far, far more than he's worth old boy!

DB, you have a talent to editorialize topics with illustrative genius. What field are you in? Did you ever want to work in the media? Broccoli getting handouts as well? Nail in the Cr-egg career coffin :!: Pulitzer stuff!

Thank you for the complements BJ, it's always appreciated. Without giving too much away, my line of work has nothing to do with creative writing and I barely survived basic high school English class. Considering this was in the California public school system that's saying something lol! I never dreamed of working in or in this case dabbling in media work. I started my thread to have an outlet for my frustrations around the Craig films, I figured everyone would quickly grow tired of my ramblings and I'd be left to screaming at the wall on my own, as it turned out the moderators liked what I had to say and the rest is history!

Broccoli's minions might read it here from time to time and either mock it or become enraged as you put the mirror to her creation and force her to see what she has done to her daddy's legacy.

DB, the female comparisons were interesting but you left out the ONE TRUE female of the franchise that has shaped it into ruination..........Broccoli, the queen of denial. Ending with Cr-egg in drag topped it off.
