Yes, they play with the formula a bit and the cast is first rate.

It’s not a classic, but still good fun.


#423

Seconded. It has some great one-liners.

And I dug up the Q (Algie) scene

Edit:

I hope we’re going to have some gratuitous sex and violence

If that doesn’t sum up the appeal of the Bond movies, I really don’t know what does :smile:

It’s fine. It’s better than Thunderball, which it’s basically a remake of, but not by much.

Forbes’ Top 400 Richest Americans has (as of December 2016) Mike Ilitch #88 with a net worth of $6.1 Billion.

In 1982 he bought the Detroit Red Wings for $8 million. The team was in financial turmoil on and off the ice, but he pumped in the money, built through the draft, groomed and nurtured the players, and got a few out of communist countries.
This paid off with bringing the Stanley Cup back to Hockeytown in 1997, 1998, 2002, and 2008.

Those of us that keep an eye on sports know what good ownership can do, and he was one of the best.

RIP

RIP Al Jarreau. I was reading an article just yesterday about Moonlighting (for which he sang the theme tune).


#431

Not a big fan of jazz, but I like Jarreau because he transcended that genre. RIP.

“In the Sherman Oaks, Studio City Area in the 70s and early 80s we had a neighborhood joint that we all hung out at and gigged at & jammed out called Josephina’s. That was “the hang” and Al hung out there too.”

Replied:
We had a birthday party for my buddy Steve Hill at Josephina’s, and after a bit Al, who was there, actually came over and introduced himself to the rowdy bunch; and finding it was Skeeve’s birthday, did two tunes for him! Just a warm wonderful guy.

Damn. :frowning:

Really, right now, just… damn.

Game over man. Game over.

That’s very sad and of course unexpected. The guy leaves a hell of a resume behind - there’s not many actors who could top it. He seems to have been in every major movie going back 35 years.

Ah shit. Bill Paxton was always good fun in everything he did.


#441

Bill Paxton was killed on screen by an Alien, a Predator, and a Terminator.

Now that is a goddamn career.
