More mayhem

Image

I do like Brosnan - wow younger Judy Dench. - cold war time.

Good lord ...primitive computers :what:

Bit lame compared to the later versions. Will see if the next one improves. :popcorn:

Image

Interesting start - China conflict in the South China sea....bit prescient. :popcorn:

Moneypenny is too funny ...cunning linguist ...really and she's cute :naughty2:

Great cast and Dench is perfect for it.

Wow Michelle Yeoh one of my fav actors but much younger ...no idea she was a Bond girl.

Wai Lin (Chinese: 林慧; pinyin: Lín Huì) is a fictional character in the 1997 James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies, portrayed by Michelle Yeoh. The character, the first ethnic Chinese Bond girl, has received critical acclaim, being widely regarded as one of the best Bond girls in the series.


The mayhem improves ...so does the tech

Early Bonds getting boring

this is good



Big challenge mostly met. Critics liked it more than audience but still 73% audience approval on RT. Fair bit of work went into it mostly rewarded. Scenery is spectacular. Unfair ....Alberta has too much of it ;)

Ok, wow! I watched 12 Angry Men and the whole time I thought of Scorsese (especially with the long takes) and it turns out the director, Sidney Lumet, was a massive influence on him.

The whole, infamous, one-take scene from Goodfellas owes everthing to this movie.

It is a classic. My psychology class in college had us watch it as a view into mob mentality, etc. It’s really good.

What a great cast.
https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0181875/fullcredits/cast

good soundtrack too

:popcorn:


Directed by Cameron Crowe
Produced by Cameron Crowe
Ian Bryce
Written by Cameron Crowe
Starring Billy Crudup
Frances McDormand
Kate Hudson
Jason Lee
Patrick Fugit
Anna Paquin
Fairuza Balk
Noah Taylor
Philip Seymour Hoffman

Almost Famous is a 2000 American comedy-drama film written and directed by Cameron Crowe and starring Billy Crudup, Frances McDormand, Kate Hudson, and Patrick Fugit. It tells the story of a teenage journalist writing for Rolling Stone in the early 1970s while covering the fictitious rock band Stillwater, and his efforts to get his first cover story published.
The film is semi-autobiographical, as Crowe himself was a teenage writer for Rolling Stone. It is based on his experiences touring with rock bands Poco, the Allman Brothers Band, Led Zeppelin, Eagles, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Crowe has discussed how during this period he lost his virginity, fell in love, and met his heroes[2]—experiences that are shared by William Miller (Fugit), the boyish main character of the film.
Although a box office bomb, the film received widespread acclaim from critics, and received four Academy Awards nominations, including a win for Best Original Screenplay. It was also awarded the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack Album for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media. Roger Ebert hailed it the best film of the year, as well as the ninth-best film of the 2000s. It also won two Golden Globe Awards, for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture (Hudson)


worth the watch ...especially if you lived the period.

They say write what you know and Crowes own experiences add much to this good movie. :coffee:
