    The Football Thread - 17/18 Season

    in Sports Discussion on 13 July 2014

    People are always going on about the 2-2 tie between Germany and Ghana, or the close wins of Germany over the USA and Algeria. But Bosnia, Iran, Nigeria, and Switzerland all gave Argentina a run for their money as well. I think Ghana is a pretty good African team, and remember, they came very close to going to the semi finals in 2010. Just because certain teams are underdogs doesn't mean you...

    Pachter: Nintendo “just doesn’t get it” with the Wii U

    Quantum Of Solace Review

    in Movies Discussion on 09 July 2012

    Amp, even as a fan of Roger Moore, I understand that his silly shenanigans could sometimes go a little too far. But even though he was humorous, he could also be cold-blooded at times. When he shoots Stromberg in cold blood, pushing Drax out into space after shooting him with the dart gun, kicking the car, with Emile Locque trapped in it, down the cliff, are just a few examples of how Moore could...

    Quantum Of Solace Review

    in Movies Discussion on 09 July 2012

    I personally think Quantum Of Solace is the worst James Bond film. Yes, even worse than Die Another Day. Whereas Die Another Day went out of its way to be a Bond film to the point of overkill, Quantum Of Solace goes out of its way to NOT be a Bond film. Quantum Of Solace feels more like an unofficial Bond film than Never Say Never Again. Bland characters and locations, Bourne-inspired action...

    Casino Royale 2006 Review

    in Movies Discussion on 03 July 2012

    Before I begin, I'll say that I totally respect your opinion in regards to Daniel Craig and this new direction, Amp. And I'll say again that I don't mean any offence towards you and other Craig fans here, with my arguments against this reboot. After the Die Another Day debacle, it was said that the classic Bond formula was dated and no longer suitable for modern times. Well, I say that it's...

    Die Another Day Review

    in Movies Discussion on 25 June 2012

    I don't mind some fun and fantasy in Bond movies. I enjoy You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me, and Moonraker. In the review of Moonraker I stated that I liked the film, and thought it's far more watchable than Die Another Day. I didn't get into too much detail at that time, but I will now for this review. In Moonraker, I liked the title song and soundtrack by John Barry. There was some...

    The World Is Not Enough Review

    The World Is Not Enough Review

    in Movies Discussion on 18 June 2012

    Like Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough is what I would consider just another okay modern Bond movie, that I'll only watch every once in a while. The Bond films that follow afterwards, are the ones that I can no longer tolerate. With The World is Not Enough, the producers tried to experiment by adding more in-depth story/characters , but in the end, it was executed rather poorly....

    Tomorrow Never Dies Review

    in Movies Discussion on 11 June 2012

    I think it's been around ten years since I last watched Tomorrow Never Dies. Yeah, whenever I want to watch a Bond movie, I usually pick one of the Roger Moore or Sean Connery ones. It's not that I think this movie is horrible, I just don't think it's as good as GoldenEye. Although Brosnan seems a bit more confident in the role this time, he's also a bit too Rambo-ish for my liking with all the...

    GoldenEye Review

    in Movies Discussion on 04 June 2012

    Although I'm not a big fan of the modern Bond movies, GoldenEye is certainly the exception. And no, I'm not just saying that because of the awesome Nintendo 64 game, I really do like this movie. After the darker approach of Licence To Kill was rejected by the market, the producers decided to go back to the formula of the Moore/Connery Bonds, with a modern twist. The results were impressive....

    The Living Daylights Review

    in Movies Discussion on 21 May 2012

    When I first saw this movie as a kid, I wasn't too crazy about it since it didn't seem as fun as the Sean Connery and Roger Moore Bonds. However, after viewing it again later on, I sort of warmed up to The Living Daylights a little more. It is a more serious Bond film, but like For Your Eyes Only, it does have some humorous bits that keep the film fun and not make it seem too dark. I really love...

    A View To A Kill Review

    in Movies Discussion on 15 May 2012

    Thanks for replying to my comment, amp! And yes, I'll certainly stick around for your other James Bond reviews. I'm glad that you also feel that Roger Moore was underrated and deserves more credit. I just can't stand it when people say that he killed the series because he wasn't hardcore/serious enough. If that was the case, then the series would have ended just like you said. I understand...

    A View To A Kill Review

    in Movies Discussion on 14 May 2012

    Yikes! I thought you would at least give this two stars! It seems that everyone and their grandmother loves to bash A View To A Kill so much, but I still love it. I even have one of the original 1985 A View To A Kill posters hanging in my room! I know it's not a perfect Bond film, but I don't think it's horrible. The title song is awesome, and is my personal favourite. The main soundtrack by...

    Never Say Never Again Review

    in Movies Discussion on 07 May 2012

    I've only seen this movie once when I was a kid, and I really didn't care for it. To me, Thunderball was more superior. There are some people that say Never Say Never Again is better than Diamonds Are Forever, but despite its flaws, I've always liked Diamonds Are Forever more. ...

    Octopussy Review

    in Movies Discussion on 30 April 2012

    I just watched this one a couple of weeks ago, and I think it's pretty good. Lots of nice locations, cool action scenes, and Roger Moore is back to his usual humorous self. I'm kind of surprised that you'll be reviewing the unofficial Never Say Never Again. ...
