Love- when there's a grand scheme to destroy/conquer the world, however implausible- case in point Moonraker

Hate- when a film hems and haws between what it could be.- case in point The World is Not Enough.

Admittedly it's a bit showy just for the sake of it, but it's still a striking sequence.

Diamonds Are Forever was filmed with the approach that nothing in OHMSS existed, which is why the first shot takes place in Japan, it's picking up where YOLT left off.

Well, those two scripts were written by Christopher Wood, whose other big claim to fame is writing the Timmy Lea Confessions series, so there you go. I still think Holly Goodhead is a lot more clever than "Xenia Onatopp". At least Goodhead could be an actual person's name.

I'm not a fan of Pierce Brosnan and I really don't get the love that so many people have for Goldeneye, I could go on all day about the things I dislike about it but I will say that one thing I really do like are the scenes of Bond playing baccarat in Monte Carlo, that was a good classic Bond moment.

One thing that really bothers me though is seeing Desmond Llewelyn in Goldeneye. He's definitely game, but it's painful to watch him straining to read his lines from the cue cards and just struggling to get through the scene. Even in Licence To Kill he was spry enough to get involved in a lot of the action, more so than any other film in the series, but in those six intervening years he had clearly got too old for the part and it's really uncomfortable to watch. His final scene in TWINE is a touching moment though.

Hmmmm, I'm going to need you to cite some primary source material to back up that claim. I grant you, they mostly act like they're ignoring OHMSS, but I always thought the pre-credits sequence plays like Bond was hunting Blofeld for personal revenge.

Of course, the continuity between YOLT, OHMSS and DAF is so completely forked up anyway, that's the one thing that overwhelmingly bugs me about the series. The producers just didn't give a shit.

Like- When they are filmed in cool international locations.

Hate-When they are too long. 2 hours 20 minutes is waaay too long for a Bond film. Keep it at around 2 hours-thatís enough for me.

I don't buy this either. Connery even references the PTS afterward saying what he had been doing was most satisfying. Also, there's the old BONDAGE article from the guy who used to own the bathosub, who explains he learned on the DAF set that Bond was going to make a major issue of discussing the death of his wife during the penthouse scene with the two Blofelds. So presumably that means such material was at the very least scripted, possibly even shot, which means citing the Asia opening of the film as a YOLT continuation just doesn't float.

No, admittedly I cannot back that up with primary source material, only because they'd never come out and admit it. It's partly based on the fact that OHMSS was Saltzman's baby and that Cubby wasn't a fan of it and was pissed off over the whole Lazenby situation, so when he was in charge of DAF and had Connery back they basically played like OHMSS never happened.

WTF does that prove? It was satisfying because he thought he had finally tracked down and killed the leader of Spectre.

The prologue of DAF basically exists, so that the audience can put OHMSS to bed, move on and enjoy the new film without having to think about how it connects to the previous film.

All the vintage Bond films are basically stand alone storylines; as an example, it makes no sense that Blofeld doesn't recognize Bond in OHMSS, considering the characters met each other in YOLT, the previous film. Charles Gray played MI6 agent Henderson in YOLT and yet turns up as Blofeld in DAF. All the different Felix Leiters? The list is endless.

Don't think too much about it, you'll just hurt your head.

When the hell did Connery's Bond ever reflect on how great it was that he had gotten to kill somebody? That's the kind of response you'd expect when it is personal.

And none of this addresses the story about Tracy being specifically addressed in DAF, and that being omitted. Planning that would be utterly at cross purposes to the 'ignore OHMSS' notion.
