    @jegga nah, no where near as tough as Bourne.

    Jason Bourne doesn’t tell dad jokes either .

    Been a while since I saw a Bond film , from memory he’s like a gay Jason Bourne right?

    Only the Roger Moore version. Sean Connery and Timothy Dalton would fuck Maaaatt Daaaamon up.

    Yeah nah . Pierce Brosnan would be owned pretty easily by Bourne too



  • @jegga Pierce Brosnan would be owned by Mr. Bean.



  • George Lazenby trained with Bruce Lee. Something tells me Fag Damon wouldn't provide much in the way of a fight.



  • Interesting that Daniel Craig is much smaller than all of the other Bonds. Never realised Pierce Brosnan was so tall (1.88).

    By that measure I should have been a Test player...

    I think Piece got measured by the same bloke that did Ardie....

    The only legit 6 foot 2 bonds were Connery and Lazenby.

    He was In the army as well and a legit tough dude in real life. I did like your post though 🙂

    I think Matt Damon is a cock but

    He looks like Remington Steele playing James Bond



  • I didn't realise that Lazenby is married to Pam Shriver. 23 yrs older too.

    Dalton is too. Think he's the tallest of the lot.

    Richard Chamberlain?



  • In true SJW style it's heartwarming to see they're out and about insisting Bond be played by a black lesbian dwarf to make up for years of oppression. I think Stuff.co.nz have run articles on this monthly....

    God Bless.



  • Ok

    So had a day / aftafternoon of little interest in much so watch a couple of movies.

    Jurassic World. Fallen Kingdom

    Am not a huge fan of the Jurassic dinosaur stuff, but quite enjoyed this one. Ending was really really dumb. Seemingly gives them nowhere to go for future movies.

    Don't like the whole Indominus Rex / genetically modified kinda-dino story line thing. But given the fact it's about de-extincted paleo creatures who cares about plot holes.

    And what was with BDH's lips? Far too much collagen.

    So am feeling generous with 3.5 genetic modifications out of 5 really rather benign pyroclastic flows.

    Slumdog Millionaire

    Have bugged Mrs boo for years and years to watch this. I'd seen it, she has avoided it. Never been sure why, just she was convinced she wouldn't like it.

    I warned her about one particularly horrible part (in the orphanage while their mate Arvind was singing, just before the boys escape to the trains), which we cringed through. Even so we decided it was probably somewhat sanitised depiction of life in India.

    Really very clever movie.

    Seemed to get dusty in the room around the end of the movie (and when Jamal recalled how he knew what Rama holds in his right hand earlier on in tge movie). And even when Salim found redemption.

    5 chai wallahs out of 5 third musketeers.

    Stand By Me

    Found the last 30 mins of this as I avoided going to bed. Awesome movie. Must get on to Mrs boo about dusting this place ...

    4.5 dead bodies out of 5 adolescent friends



  • Dirty Harry

    What can you say about this movie that single handedly invented the rogue cop genre of flicks? The San Fran location, the jazzy music, the eerie tension.....Some excellent performances all round, Andy Robinson was brilliant as the psycho killer but Clint steals the show in every single scene. So many good lines and that scene in the stadium is ruthless as fuck even by today's standards.

    Naturally a bit of 1970s datedness but to me that doesnt take anything away from it. Just a goddamm awesomely brilliant flick. One of my all time favourites. As is often the case the sequels got worse as they went along but this one is a classic.

    5 44 magnum bullets out of 5 shots fired.



  • Operation Finale (Netflix)

    About the kidnapping of Adolf Eichmann from Argentina to face trial in Israel by Mossad in 1960. Cut above your normal docudrama.

    Ben Kingsley excellent as Eichmann, showing Eichmann's intelligence and matter-of-fact justification for the Holocaust. Chilling portrayal and good to see Kingsley playing an evil bastard for once.

    7/10



  • The Cloverfield Paradox

    Shite. Some good special effects, buts still shite....

    4/10



  • @rancid-schnitzel
    Dalton did his own stunts as well in his Bond films. Read somewhere he was very much into martial arts.
