Wow and that's strong to say it would be the [Bond] movie you would pick if you could only choose one! I sure liked it but wouldn't pick it as my #1.

Which would your number one be?  GoldenEye? 

I ask this because I know that you're a Brosnan fan.


GoldenEye is a good bet, but I might shake things up and say Tomorrow Never Dies! 

As far as the old ones (Pre-Brosnan sort of thing) go I might be inclined to agree with you about Goldfinger being the best, I also enjoyed The Man With The Golden Gun. 

I'm almost embaressed to admit it, but Tomorrow Never Dies would be my pick too. I don't know if it's the nostalgia as the first Bond movie I ever watched or because of the leap it made from Goldeneye, but I love it.

I still love the scene where he's in the parking garage remotely controlling his car! Pretty sweet chase.

The opening is what gets me, so epic.

Ahh I can't actually remember how the opening went. Would you mind refreshing my memory?



Excellent review as always Amp. For the next one though I'd really like to see some focus on the locales/environments in the film. I'm certainly looking forward to the Moore reviews because...they should certainly be interesting.

Terrorist base, cruise missile strike, almost a nuclear catastrophe.

We're going a little bit off topic, we will save that for another thread.

Anyway, I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I think Amp should put screenshots in the review, just to give us an image of what the film is like.

There should be some interesting discussion in my Tomorrow Never Dies thread. :p

@ Brendude I don't put up pics up in my reviews because Roger Ebert doesn't and he's my hero.

Oh hell yeah! I remember that now. Definitely a good sequence!

Haha yeah man your Tomorrow Never Dies thread is never gonna die!



Great review Amp.

This is my favorite Bond movie, no doubts about it. From start to finish a great romp. To answer Seth, the plan was to deploy poison gas to kill all of the troops so that Goldfinger and the Chinese troops could enter the base with the dirty nuclear weapon and ruin the gold there. That is why they were able to get into the base. Pussy Galore warned the CIA and switched the gas out for something harmless, so the US Army was able to help Bond out and stop the bomb from destroying the US's Gold stash.

This movie also has my favorite scene in any film ever. When James is recovering at the Spa in Miami, Felix Leiter comes up to him to reveal his next mission. At the time, Bond is being massaged by Dink, a busty blonde (best names ever in this movie, Dink, come on). The conversation goes something like this.

Bond: "Felix! What a surprise! Felix, say hello to Dink, Dink, say good bye to Felix" *Bond slaps Dink on the Ass* "Man Talk."

Honestly the most manly and awesome line of dialogue ever. Closely followed by Bond's post-coital "Well, I'm glad I ran into you" to Tiffany Case in Diamonds Are Forever.
