    Just watching Jesse Stone 'Night Passage' with Tom Selleck once again. Beautifully made movie, quite dark and atmospheric with some crafty plot twists. Great stuff!

    Thunderball (1964)



    Not my favourite Bond by a long way although until Skyfall it was the highest grossing Bond film ever (adjusted for inflation). Does have some great moments, especially the fight scene in the teaser before the opening credits. This was back when Bond didn't have martial arts skills to rival Bruce Lee so he had to work hard if he wanted to kill a man with his bare hands. Much more realistic.


    One thing I always find funny is the sequence in the health spa where the baddie catches Bond strapped to the stretching machine and turns it up full to try to kill him. Why would a health spa have a stretching machine that can be set to 'kill' speed? There's even a red 'danger zone' on the dial!


    They do the same in Moonraker when he is in the G force machine. Why would it have a setting that is so fast that it would kill the man being tested?

    On the other hand it's nonsense like this that is one of the reasons I love Bond films.

    Watched that the other week. It's entertaining enough.

    Also watched a recent one with Arnie where he is the sheriff in a small town, think it was called Last Stand or something similar. Not a bad film. He's not done many bad ones really. Except True Lies and Terminator 2. They sucked.

    Would agree with all of that, but Thunderball does have the lovely Claudine Auger as a 'Bond girl'.

    Talking of nonsense - if Dr No can crush a solid cast metal ornament with his metal prosthetic hands, why can't he grip the vertical reactor control rods and climb out?
