Re: Favorite Movie Series?

I just finished a 3 1/2 day run of all 24 official Bond movies in chronological order. I gave myself time to sleep so I could enjoy the experience. Somehow, I'm actually a little melancholy it's over. As I texted my buddies, I should be sick of Bond, but I'd do it again. Not starting tomorrow, but i...

Re: Favorite Movie Series?

Last Crusade is my favorite Indy movie... likely because it was the first one I saw. And I was 10 when it came out, which was the perfect age. Raiders is probably a better movie, but "favorite" does not mean "best."

Re: Favorite Movie Series?

I see they released the title of the next Bond movie...

No Time to Die

Let's see what Mr. Craig brings to the role for his final time.

Re: 2019/8/17: Xbox: Outrun 2, Outrun 2006: Coast to Coast

Is the Xbox version considerably better than the PS2 version? After seeing ASalvaro's comment on the price I had to look on Ebay as well... and I see the PS2 version can be had for $35ish.

Re: The New Bond?

I wouldn't say the series is on life support considering the last two broke the bank at the box office. This is very true. Spectre had a domestic box office of just over $200 million, and another nearly $680 million acros the globe ($879+ million worldwide). This was actually seen as a disappointme...

Re: The New Bond?

From my perspective, the half-brother thing is off limits for Bond simply because Austin Powers already did it as a joke. A series that exists purely to parody Bond, and Bond copies it? Too lazy for my taste. But like I said in the 2600 Pac man thread, expectations play a huge role in enjoying somet...

Re: Pinterest?

Do you need a smart phone? Because I don't own one of those... I'm so proud to know you... as much as I can from simply frequenting your website. I have a buddy (40 years old, married, 3 kids) who did not have a cell phone at all until about 2 months ago. Somehow a little bit of him died when he go...

Re: What-if scenario for Atari 2600 Pac-Man

This topic fascinates me, because I have to go to another medium to relate to it. I'm 40, and didn't spend more than 20 hours total in an arcade growing up. The only Pac Man I knew was the 2600 version, and to me it was a blast. It wasn't until I started *really* collecting video games about 7 or 8 ...

Re: The New Bond?

Craig's departure will be tough. I think Casino Royale and Skyfall are two all-time great Bond movies. Quantum of Solace is underrated, in my opinion. Spectre is a big mess... the whole Austin Powers / Dr. Evil half-brothers thing is absurd and unnecessary. The Bond universe has never had continuity...

Re: What happened to couch gaming?

I currently have one per year. Guys weekend. Usually involves friends from at least 3 states, lasts at least 3 nights, and involves a lot of video games, movies (Bond movies, specifically), food and booze.

We're working on making it bi-annual, but we've got to get the buy-in from our wives first!
