    Yeah it's payday for me today as well, and as soon as six o'clock rolls around I'm done working for another four days. I plan to peruse Ebay for CIB Mega Drive, Mega CD and Saturn games, have a drinky poo or six and maybe relax by watching a Bond film. I fancy a bit of Moonraker.

    I think I have all of the Amicus horror anthology films either on laserdisc or dvd. They are all pretty good. Another great British anthology film is the 1945 "Dead of Night".

    If you haven't seen it, "Trick R Treat" is a pretty amazing anthology film - the way the interlinking story is presented is in a very unique way.

    Moonraker? Nah.
    The Spy Who Loved Me would be the pick of the Moore Bond movies, IMO.

    The Spy Who Loved Me is, as far as I'm concerned, the greatest Bond film ever, but seeing as how the late great Sir Roger Moore was my all time favourite Bond I love all his outings as 007. Moonraker is a real favourite of mine.

    Ahh crap, heres Yharnam talking about more politics even though everyone moved on. I'll try to make it brief

    Well remember to remind your Dutch Liberals that open borders begins at home:

    Its unavoidable. The U.S. immigration is mainly coming from Latin America, and those immigrants only vote Democrat.

    In case anyone doesn't know, the U.S. voting system is based on demographics.

    Republicans = white party
    Democrats = black, latino, Amerindian party

    So if you want the Republicans to win, you bring in immigrants from Poland or Russia. If you want Democrats to win, you bring in immigrants from Latin America or Caribbean(this is currently happening)

I'm not Dutch though, moved here later in life, my grandparents were born in Hungary.
    Lucky man. My ancestors came from countries that are currently pussified as hell, meanwhile Hungary is one of the most safest and homogeneous countries in Europe.

The UK most or less invented mass immigration and imported millions of works to work down the pits, in the Cotton mills. One didn't need the EU to have a load come from Europe either, the Pits Ect did that (My Grandfather came over from Ireland) and to this day in tiny village we have 2 Italian Cafe's and 3 Italian chip shops all being run by the young generation of the Italian families after their Great/Gand parents came to the UK to escape Mussolini

    If your economy is doing well and there are Jobs, workers will come from all over, the USA shows that
    Damn, looks like you got some red-pilling to go.

    First off, the biggest slave trade that ever existed was the Arab slave trade. Do Arabs got the obligation to bring in immigrants? No, and they don't do it anyways. The only immigrants you see in the developed Arab countries(Qatar, U.A.E, Saudi Arabia) are from South Asia.

    Secondly, the problem with allowing immigration, is theres bottomless supplies. How many immigrants does the UK allow every year? Is it 500,000-1,000,000? Thats what you're gonna see, year after year, for like 300 years. If you don't stop the immigration, then there will literally never be an end to it.

    The Spy Who Loved Me is without a doubt Moore's best bond film; For Your Eyes Only is my favorite and where he should have ended.

    Despite all the love for Goldfinger I still feel Connery's best was From Russia with Love.

    I like Brosnan, but only Goldeneye is worth a damn. I can watch it over and over. The next three films? I can't even remember the plots let alone the titles...

    And the end all-be-all favorite Bond film for me is The Living Daylights. Dalton was my Bond.

    Lync, you should give The World Is Not Enough another watch and see what you think of it now. It was pretty much the only Brosnan Bond film I liked (even though I really like him as Bond).

    Plus, you get to watch Denise Richards pretend to be some kind of nuclear physicist.

    Oh man, World had all of the parts but couldn't put it together for me.

    Brosnan was on point, and Sophie was a great femme fatale, but all the back-and-forth with the oil and money lost me... Carlyle as a villain with a death wish was hardly used... Denise Richards and that absolutely horrid "Christmas" ending. Oh man, that has got to be the worst line in any movie ever. I'm sure it killed Brosnan to utter it.

    Carlyle's character should have been more the focus - I mean, the guy is not suppose to feel pain! They barely use it!

    The whole movie past the mid point should have just lead Bond chasing down the stolen submarine and stopping the nuclear meltdown.
    Bond catches up to the sub.
    Bond has the big fight.
    Bond stops Carlyle and stops the meltdown thanks to something Christmas (played by someone else) told/gave him.
    Happily dying Carlyle unveils Sophie as the true bad guy.
    Bond then goes after Sophie, perhaps to also save Christmas (again, played by someone else...)
    Bond gets caught.
    Sophie tortures Bond.
    Valentine makes his great save and exit.
    Bond finally corners Sophie and must choose to kill her to save Christmas.
    Dramatic "Bond never kills a woman" moment.
    Bond kills Sophie.
    Bond saves Christmas.
    The God-damn end.

    Also for my rewrite: No 3D.^ NONE.

    I agree. He toned down some of the goofiness in For Your Eyes Only, only to ramp it up again in the next two. By then he had also started to really show his age.

    Despite all the love for Goldfinger I still feel Connery's best was From Russia with Love.
    I thought I was one of the few that felt that way. Goldfinger has been described as the "quintessential" Bond film but, for me, Connery's second outing is one of the finest Bond movies, and before the franchise was somewhat devalued by an over-reliance on gadgets.

    I like Brosnan, but only Goldeneye is worth a damn. I can watch it over and over. The next three films? I can't even remember the plots let alone the titles...

    And the end all-be-all favorite Bond film for me is The Living Daylights. Dalton was my Bond.
    Never a fan of Brosnan. His contribution to the series was to keep Bond alive at a time where the future of the franchise was uncertain, IMO.
    He brought nothing new to the table.

    OTOH, Dalton, if Ian Fleming came back from the grave, Dalton would have been the one above all others Fleming would have chosen to play Bond, IMO.

    I would imagine us British were one of the 1st to use slaves and I think our Immigration is 350,000 most of which happens to be students.

    I want out of the EU and hope we leave on No Deal , but not because of immigration, though I would like the UK to use the Australian point/skill based system for all people looking to come the UK.

    Yes I have Dead of Night on Blu Ray. It is a British horror classic and Ealing Studios (The Ladykillers, Kind Hearts and Coronets, The Man in the White Suit) one and only foray into the genre. I love the anthology, or portmanteau, format in horror. If it's done right it's superb, and Amicus nailed the format in their horror anthologies, especially in Tales from the Crypt (1972) and Vault of Horror (1973). George Romero and Stephen King's anthology horror film Creepshow (1982) is also a superb portmanteau and a brilliant tribute to the EC horror comics of 50's America. Speaking of Stephen King, I highly recommend another excellent horror anthology based on his work in the form of Cat's Eye (1985). The first story about James Wood's character trying to quit smoking is both hilarious and very creepy at the same time.

    Kwaidan is another really good one - pacing is somewhat sedate but it is a visually gorgeous film. Body Bags (1993) is also worth a looksee.
