Like?  It *was* a Thunderball remake.  Or is Domino a common name?

Duck, or you'll get Fatima guts blown all over you...

But wasn't it "outside" the traditional Bond/Broccoli franchise?

I still go to the movies frequently, especially to see stuff like the superhero movies with my son ( a little male bonding time ).  And there's no way I'm going to wait months to see Harry Potter on blu ray.

There is a movie theater near me where tickets are $3.50 all the time.  It's a pretty clean theater and the movies are in between new releases and DVD/BluRay release dates.  And of course the IMAX stuff kicks ASS!!!

If I had kids, I'd probably attend movies at the teater more often too, but I don't - so I don't.  ;)

Yes, but at least it didn't have Roger Moore in it.  Remember, Broccoli gave us "Octopussy" and "Moonraker".

My wife and I like to go to the movies.  Of course having the local brew pub on the first floor under the theater is always a must stop before or after.  We recently saw The King's Speech and The Tourist.  Looking forward to Rango.  We can get beer and wine at our theater, although the choices are pretty slim - can of Guinness does go well with popcorn.

They should have made more with George Lazenby and passed on Moore's shtick.

While a bit on the cheesy side, I could handle Moore.  It was Timothy Dalton I could never accept as Bond.  I walked out halfway through his first Bond role (Living Daylilghts) and refused to see another Bond file starring him. 

I should give Daniel Craig a go, but I haven't seen Casino Royale yet.  Nobody will ever beat Connery.

Watching late-era Moore as Bond was like watching Batman from the '60s (or worse, the original Batman "shark repellant" movie).  Campy parody of itself.  Painful.

okay so it was really a remake of thunderball
i agree george lazenby was very good but at that time no one wanted the "tortured soul" bond.  now it plays very well and i think craig has been very good.
oh and broccoli/ian fleming also gave us chitty chitty bang bang.  (of which i am a huge fan)

We have Chunky's theaters around us where you watch the movie from a table, order dinner and of course, have a few beverages.  I'm not too sure on the beer selection at these places...may have to have a grown-ups night to check it out.

You know they're doing a sequel to TOP GUN right?

I don't believe it.  They'll never be able to find anyone with an ego as big as Tom Cruise to play the lead.

They already did, I think in the early 90s...he has tiger blood and he's BIWINNING!

All the McMenamin's hotels in Oregon have in-house theaters with big comfy couches and they encourage you to bring beer.

While Sean Connery remains the classic Bond, I think that Pierce Brosnan has actually been the best to date. Connery wasn't that good an actor (but delivered the wry oneliners very well), Roger Moore was just Simon Templar (The Saint), and lacked the athleticism and the wit, Lazenby was too dark, Timothy Dalton was awful. Daniel Craig is actually pretty good.

I'm young enough that the first Bond I saw was Moore. Once I saw Connery the scales fell from my eyes. Now I think Daniel Craig plays him excellently. Portrays Bond as the smooth-talking sociopath; this is the real Bond.
