So, after the Christmas rush, I now own every single James Bond movie able to be bought at this point in time except for one, Goldfinger. Although, right now, I don't want to buy it. 


Shmibli! Why do you not want the one quentisential Bond film? You may be asking. Well, first let me say, the fact that almost all Bond fans praise this as the paragon of all James Bond films makes me dubious. Usually, things that most people like (Deadpool, Ni no kumi, Indy music, etc.) I hate, So I'm afraid that when people say Goldfinger is the best that it's bandwagon.


Also, I have spent a good deal of my time collecting the Bond movies, starting when I received The Spy who Loved Me and License to Kill as Christmas presents two years ago and while I do not simply collect just the Bond movies (I read the books, play the video games, and have four posters framed in my room.) I feel like buying the final movie that a full set requires will be closing a chapter of my life.


Lastly... Pussy Galore. Why? I understand that James Bond movies have a decent amount of pillow talk in them and that some characters have strange names but really? It seems like the name of a porn star to me. 


This being said, I'll probably wimp out and buy it.

It makes me laugh about you saying that you don't have Goldfinger, yet here the French TV network 'Canal+' sticks the whole bunch of Bond films every Sunday night at least 3 times a year. :troll:

      Personally I like the Force Awakens. While it was not a perfect film, I felt it was a fun film. This I hope atleast matches or exceeds. I just want it to be enjoyable compared to Rouge One. ... The movie... Ew...
      So anyway, this thread has to happens. What do you dudes think? It can't be as bad as... You know...

      Can it be better than THIS ?!?!?! ^ ...

      I'm not sure if this is rec room/lounge material so, if it is, I apologize. 
      What books, comics, shows, etc. do you think need their own silver screen debut. Personally, I believe Marv Wolfman's 1983 run of Vigilante, which, yes, came into being after the horrible movie by the same name that same year needs a movie. Adrian Chase, or Vigilante, is a very deep character and with the whole "dark heroes" trend I think a Vigilante movie could be a huge success.
      Also, The Elder Scrolls series needs to be recognized on the big screen. If the right writers are hired, an epic rivaled only by Lord of the Rings could emerge.
      What do you guys think? What do you want to see ar the movies, if you had your choice?

      As evidenced by my profile picture, quote, and actions, I love spy fiction movies and television shows. James Bond being my favorite but also movie series such as the Bourne franchise, the Mission: Impossible franchise, The November Man, and and T.V. series such as The Blacklist and Burn Notice. Any other spy fiction lovers here?

      They can't do away with Krystal. They can't. She's a member of the Star Fox team!! She's Fox's love interest!! Sigh. I have faith in you, Shigeru Miyamoto. Don't let me down.
      Do you all feel the same, or no?

      Hello everyone! I've been a hardcore Star Fox fan since I was two years old. I use to play the 64 game all the time (frankly, now I wish I grew up with the SNES game instead) and since screenwriting is one of my biggest passions, I decided to pursue my own film adaptation of the Star Fox franchise.
      The reason I bring this up is that I need opinions from fellow Star Fox fans on this website. I plan to take elements mainly from the SNES game, and I want to ask a few things of you guys:
      What were your favorite parts of the original game? Most epic moments? What did you feel when playing the game?
        What tone do you think I should go with, considering the source material? (I think Iron Man (2008) would be a good reference.)
        What kind of message or idea could be communicated really well through this universe and these characters?
        I would like a few opinions from you guys. It's not usually a good idea to get other people's opinions before your own, but since I respect the source material as a lot of other people do as well, I think a few outside voices wouldn't hurt. Thank you for your time.
