I do. Less stupid humour...less stupid effects...better story...better nastier villains...better hard edged violence...

And a fairly decent cast for once...Robert Davi...Anthony Zerbe...Benicio Del Torro...Cary Lowell...and the return of the REAL Felix Leiter. cool

The Redeemer rates ALTK a fairly respectable 7/10. rock

its the only bond film which doesn't feel like a bond film, but instead feels like a cross between a rejected version of die hard, mixed with a Joel Schumacher movie.

I like License ( or Licence)To Kill. I think that Timothy Dalton got a bum rap. He wasn't out of favor with the producer's family, as he was one of the pallbearers at Cubby Broccolli's funeral. I don't think any other of the actors that portrayed Bond did that. Actually, both of Dalton's movies were strangely contemporary, especially The Living Daylights. If LTK had come out in October of 1989 instead of the summer, it would have coincided with the real ouster of Noriega in Panama, who the Robert Davi character seemed to be patterned after. In the Living Daylights Bond helps the Mujahadin; if they did a Bond film now in Afghanistan the character might be fighting the Cameron Shah character instead of helping him.

that's the trick with older movies huh? knowing what exactly happens around them that makes them do that movie.

Moonraker's scene where they shoot in space and such is just because Star Wars two years earlier was a hit, knowing that you get why they were keen to do that

I have liked the James Bond series since I was old enough to see movies
with "mature" themes. I've seen all of them, with the exception of "Never Say Never Again," which I can't get interested in, and I've just seen bits and pieces of "Golden Eye." We all have our favorites, obviously, based on our own interests and opinions of what makes a good movie. I remember that "License To Kill" was criticized because it was too realistic, and the Roger Moore movies got too "cartoonish." I like the Living Daylights, I think that you could substitute any of the other "Bonds" into it, and it would have maintained its integrity. It was creative, had the typical "Bond" off the walls stuff, like sledding on the snow on a viola case, also had the requisite megalomaniac, and psycho henchman. "License To Kill" also had the megalomaniac(Robert Davi)
and psycho killer(Benicio Del Toro{sp?}) It was rather dark, which is why I think some people didn't like it. Bond always had gruesome stuff, like feeding people to piranhas, but usually wasn't graphic and usually had some black humor( the first tongue in cheek "Bondism" I remember was George Lazenby, when one of the bad guys was run over by a snow machine, when he nonchalantly replied "He had alot of guts.") Roger Moore was the best at the tongue and cheek stuff, I think, because he delivered lines with a twinkle in his eye. Connery did it well, too, but he said it just like he would say "how do you do?" (best ex: scene where he was trapped on dance floor by evil Bond woman, and she was trying to set him up so the henchmen could shoot him-of course, he managed to get her in the line of fire, and when he was leaving the dance floor with her limp, lifeless body, he told another tourist that she was "dead on her feet") I think that was one of the things that Timothy Dalton did not do as well, but he did not get very much time to practice it either. I haven't really gotten to see Pierce Brosnan enough, but I think he comes off as rather wry.

Also, Evy, is that a Gaelic quote in your replies? cool

to be nitpicker... connery said "She's just dead" and not "She's dead on her feet" wink

Well, I just liked the way connery said it; and I really believe that Moore made it worse with that "cartoonish" thing

I don't have the time right now to read your huge post eek! I'll check it later stick out tongue
But no, my sig (you mean my sig right?) says in elvish: I reniad lin ne mor, nuithannen… In gwidh ristennin i fae narchannen… = Your journey has ended in darkness, the bonds cut, the spirit broken.
It's from "A Lament for Gandalf" in FotR big grin

But it might have Gaelic roots cause Tolkien was inspired by many languages to make his big grin

offtopic embarrasment
