Well I certainly prefer Sean Connery over all the other Bonds past & present. There's no beating classic Bond.

However, if I had a choice.. I'd choose the SW Trilogy.

What...are you saying which of the 2 is better? The OT by all means. The newer James Bond films have better fights and gadgets IMHO.

Needles
07-09-2002, 10:25 PM
Roger Moore is the King of ALL bond movies!and the newer movies are also have cooler gadgets,But Moore beats them all,to me anyway.And the OT is THE ABSOLUTLY BEST OF ALL TRILOGIES EVER,although I think the new trilogy may take the rank over and make the origanal trilogy 2nd.

Roger Moore certainly was the wittiest/funniest of the Bond actors.

Needles

Thats just one of the reasons I like him,how bout Timothy Dalton?

DeadEye

Dalton didn't do enough movies to make a good judgement. However, Dalton's 2 movies were among the 2 best in the series.

Needles
07-09-2002, 11:18 PM
Dalton was the 2nd best Bond Actor because he acted more like a real life secret agent than any of the others.the movies he was in are two of th best

Needles
07-09-2002, 11:20 PM
Dalton got into a fight with filmakers and as a result didnt do another bond movie

That's a pretty silly question, since this is a Star Wars forum. What do you think people will say? Maybe I'll go find a 007 forum and ask if they like Star Wars better. :p Just kidding. I like James Bond, too. But not more than Star Wars!:D

I never knew Dalton got in a fight with the filmmakers. But his 2 movies--The Living Daylights and Licence To Kill--are probably the 2 best of them all. IMHO the best bond films are:

1. Tomorrow Never Dies
2. On Her Majesty's Secret Service
3. Licence To Kill
4. The Living Daylights
5. Goldfinger

Roger Moore was the WORST Bond. Period.

Sean Connery was the BEST Bond. Period.

Brosnan is second best. Dalton and Lazenby were both excellent Bonds, too. Moore WASN'T.

Best Connery Film: Goldfinger
Worst Connery Film: Diamonds Are Forever
Best Moore: For Your Eyes Only
Worst Moore: Moonraker (and therefore, the worst Bond movie, EVER...)
Best Brosnan: Goldeneye
Worst Brosnan: The other two ( a bit misleading since both were good flicks, but not as good as Goldeneye. GE also had a cool N64 1st person shooter...)

Dalton can't really have a best/worst category, but I prefer Living Daylights over License to Kill, slightly.

And the OT is better than all of them. ;)

Needles
07-10-2002, 10:17 AM
MORER IS THE BEST BOND EVER
His best The Spy Who Loved me
But IMHO these are the best Bond Actors Starred in.

1.The Spy Who Loved Me
2.Tomarrow Never Dies
3You Only live twice
4.The Living Daylights
5.Your Majesty's Secret Service

Oh,CONNERY WAS THE WORST BOND EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and yes this is a stupid forum,I was just bored.

DeadEye
07-10-2002, 10:25 AM
I thought The Man With The Golden Gun was Moore's worst film.

I think Brosnan is the best Bond, to tell the truth.

So basically you're saying that you like them all. :rolleyes:
and for the record Sean Connery was the best Bond.

All Bond actors did a good job,and the worst Moore Film is Moonraker I d give it a 7/10 most of them got tens
Goldfinger I HATED SO MUCH,maybe classic but it just sucks.
so I gave it a 3/10,Call me crazy!

One of my favorite Bond movies is "You Only live Twice".
Any movie that features an attack helecopter than can be broken down into 5 suitcases is super cool. :cool:

Thats one of the 3 of the best Connery Movies,I think the raiding scene on Blofelds Volcano layer is cool

I love the Bond flicks, even Moonraker and View to a Kill... barely. ;) But it's so totally different from Star Wars that they're not something I could compare.

Im a fan of the older Bond movies, though I don't consider myself an expert. I really like You Only Live Twice, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, For Your Eyes Only, Live and Let Die, Goldfinger, and Goldeneye (not older, but by far the best of the last few). The others I haven't seen as much. I thought Timothy Dalton was fine as James Bond, but the movies he had to suffer through were excrutiatingly bad.
Connery was the "coolest" Bond, while Moore changed the tone of the character completely. His tongue-in-cheek approach worked for me as well, but grew tired more quickly than Connery's cool. Brosnan is a good mix of the two. I absolutely love him reloading his pistol and barely flinching when the round hits near his head in the opening sequence of Goldeneye. Totally cool, and a great intro to Brosnan's take on JB.
I couldn't finish watching the Denise Richards one, or the one with that "Ted Turner" type media megalomaniac. They were both on the road to brutal well before hitting the one hour mark so I pushed stop and read instead. Maybe Ill get back to them someday.
As far as comparing them to the OT, I would rather watch C3PO telling the Ewoks about Luke blowing up the first death star for 24 straight hours than any James Bond movie.

You're all crazy! :crazed:
David Niven was clearly the best Bond, hence Casino Royale is the best. :sur:
After that, I guess Connery would be my favorite . . . a distant second. :D

I've actually never seen "Majesty's Secret Service" - is it true that this is the only film to show Bond getting married?
:)

DeadEye
07-11-2002, 08:13 AM
That is the only Bond film to show him get married. It's also the only one where he actually, truly loves the woman.

billfremore
07-11-2002, 09:49 AM
I think he loves all the women he's with, it's just for much shorter periods. :D;)

Needles
07-11-2002, 11:53 AM
I havent seen Casino Royale yet,but, I heard it sucks badly.And Bond is a player,a pimp,he keeps on slepping with almost every women he meets,I think hes slept with all of them.Impressive ;).
But the negative to this is that its done in every movie,in so creating boring love stories,but great plots,great action,and sometimes great Humor.So I choose not to pay attenion to the love stories.Directors have to try harder to get me to listen to love stories in action movies,make the love story realistic,heck the love story in Pearl Harbor and Ep2 are better than most love stories in Action movies,and these love stories suck.but still bond is a player,and most guys want to be him when starts acting like a player.

DeadEye
07-11-2002, 01:32 PM
He never loved any woman other than Tracy di Vicenzo, and maybe Paris Carver. All the other women he merely used, because most of them knew something or had some special skill that helped him beat the bad guys...:p

The book The Essential Bond says:

"The lesbian tendencies of Honor Blackman, who played ***** Galore, were insinuated in the film. 'I'm immune,' she informs Bond, referring to his obvious attempts to charm her.)"

They're all good. But the book is actually canon, since the late Cubby Broccoli, owner of the series, approved everything within. :D

I'm going to move this over to Movies: Other, which is where it probably should've gone in the first place, since the SW aspect seems to be dwindling by the minute.

BTW, I've never seen a Bond movie, don't want to watch them with commercials, but have always been a bit intimidated by the selection available. However, I've always wanted to see them, so where do you fellas think I should start? :)

Needles
07-12-2002, 12:07 PM
start with the very first Dr.No rent them from Blockbuster,Dvd is better,you actually start with any.I started with Dr. No

I dunno if he loved Paris; in the film, they seemed close but not really with that sort of bond (no pun intended). I hear that Bond is still living with Tiffany Case in the book that comes after Diamonds Are Forever, that might be 007 in love (if the book character is ANYTHING like the film character, he'd HAVE to be in love, damn was she annoying. Luckily, the books have little to do with the films :D)


Chux, starting with the first probably is the best way to go, though if you absolutely won't be watching a lot of them, then there are a select few that are considered really accessable:
- Goldfinger (#1 top choice, no question, I used to work in a video store, that film is IT)
- The Spy Who Loved Me (a fairly well-rounded version of cinematic 007, Moore's 3rd outing as the character has lots of charm and campy comedy and gadgets and spy stuff and saving the world, but it never goes too over the top)
- Goldeneye (a bit long, but lots of good globetrotting and charm, great production value and good story, this one is a little more "insider" movie though)
- The Living Daylights (Dalton's first crack at 007 is a taught spy drama with gratefully little of the Moore campy/comedy, but it's over 2 hours long)
- The Man with the Golden Gun (not quite as great as the above selections, but the villain is Count Dooku! :D)

I have always loved the Bond movies. I really like Roger Moore, because he was Bond when I was growing up. However, I must say that Sean Connery has got to be the best Bond of all though. How can you not like him? He's the original, plus he's the coolest.
I own them all on video, so after thinking about this for a few minutes, my order of top 5 Bond films would be:
1. Goldfinger ("No Mr Bond, I expect you to die!")
2. Goldeneye (Famke Janssen is sooo hot)
3. The Spy who Loved Me (gotta love the car that turns into a sub)
4. Tomorrow Never Dies (Two Words:Teri Hatcher!!)
5. The Man with the Golden Gun (Count Dooku has a third nipple?)

So there they are. Of course if I was watching them for the first time, I would start at Dr No.
But between Bond and the OT of SW, I definately have to stay with SW.

Eternal Padawan
07-13-2002, 09:17 AM
I think the Connery films need to be watched in order since it is building towards the showdown with Blofeld in OHMSS.

Dr. No
From Russia With Love
Goldfinger
Thunderball
You Only Live Twice

You can skip most of Moore's dreck. But go ahead and watch

The Spy Who Loved Me.
For You Eyes Only.

and then watch A View To a Kill for Christopher Walken's brilliant over the top performance.

After that all of Dalton's and Brosnan's films are pretty good. At this point in the series, they have to have so many winks and nods to the other films, there's no room for an actual plot. Here are just some of the things that HAVE to be in the films or fans will get "upset" (in no particular order):
Bond must have exciting pre-credits sequence.
Bond must have credits sequence with naked chicks and hit song.
"My name is Bond. James Bond." Bond has to meet the villain and exchange witty repartee.
Bond villain must have interesting head thug. (Oddjob, Jaws, etc)
"Shaken not stirred." Bond must have a martini.
Bond has to nail some chick that's irrelevant to the story, so we know that he has an instiable libito.
Bond has to nail the bad girl.
Bond has to engage in innuendo with Moneypenny.
Bond must visit M and receive mission and show off his expertise on at least one subject.
Bond has to visit Q branch and recieve three gadgets. One "gadget" must be gadget filled auto. Auto may or may not be destroyed by film's end (50/50 chance).
Bond has to use said gadgets during course of film.
Bond has to visit three exotic locals during the course of the film.
Bond has to have clever chase at one of these locations.
Recently, Bond has to shill for a certain brand of Vodka, or watch, or cellphone, or automobile.
Bond must save world before end of movie.
Bond has to nail the good girl at the end of the film.

So there you have it. Add all these elements to a film and it's a 007 flick, regardless.

I'd choose SW Trilogy. Although I was a big Bond fan in my young years before I was introduced to Star Wars, I'm not really into it as much anymore. I still have all the DVD and can't wait for the new film, but I can't remember the last time I watched a Bond film.

Connery will never be beaten as Bond, but I'll have to disagree with Jacen Solo, Moore was brilliant, and second next to Connery. Next on my list comes Dalton, then Brosnan then Barry Nelson, David Niven then at the very bottom is George Lazenby.

I also like Honor Blackman (Pu**y Galore), Maud Adams (Octo*****), and Ursula Andress (Honey Rider).

I like Halle Berry too,I may not like her in Die Another Day,because she'd be driving the 2002 Ford Thunderbird.I hope it blows up in the movie,I HATE FORD AND ALL FORD OWNED COMPANIES,but I like The 2003 Mercury Marauder.Since I hate Ford I hate ASTIN MARTIN!Oh,they were also filiming a couple parts for DAD in Monmouth County,NJ,They were also casting,Im not sure if it was Dad but it sounds femilier.trhey were casting 2 years ago I think,it was extra's though.

Roger Moore was an excellent BOND. I dare anyone to watch For Your Eyes Only and say otherwise. I'm a fan of Octo***** as well.

Connery defined the role, but I think the generation gap is starting to show. Goldfinger is great.

Goldeneye was the best Brosnan flick so far. Tommorrow never dies lacks a good villian and The World is not Enough suffers because of Denise Richards.

If I had to pick a Dalton movie, it would be Living Daylights, but it drags on for faaaar too long.

I've never sat all the way through OHMSS.

Awww, how could you leave off May Day (Grace Jones) from your list? She could kick Christopher Walken's A, slap around a horse, and strangle Patrick Macnee all in one movie. ;)

IMO, the best Bond was Connery. Who else could be so smooth while saying "Poooooooshy" ? :crazed:

What bugged me so much about Moore wasn't necessarily his acting or his lines. It's that he already was a fairly older guy when he started his Bond career, yet he was always stuck with really younger women except for Maud Adams in Octo***** (let's see if SSG deletes that word out). It was almost creepy to see him being so old hitting on these young chicks. The worst was his last movie, A View to a Kill. In the opening sequence after he ducks out on the Soviet Ski Team he beds that smokin' blonde in the iceberg submarine. It kind of reminds me of Anna Nichole Smith and her 90 year-old "husband."

Actually, EP you could cut out Goldfinger from your list. GF isn't in SPECTRE and I don't think there's any mention of it or Blofeld in the movie at all.

The last movie SPECTRE or Blofeld is mentioned in is Diamonds are Forever, which I believe actually comes after OHMSS in release order. Bond smacks him around at the end.

I prefer the Blofeld from You Only Live Twice (Donald Pleasance). He's more laid back and is the inspiration for Dr. Evil, yet I can't figure out where the finger thing by the mouth came from.

Bond (Moore in his best turn as 007) regains control of the chopper after an extremely-close-call and uses the landing skid to pick the handicapped Blofeld's wheelchair up, fly it and its helpless passenger up to the top of a large smokestack and then drop the old bald punk in all without mentioning his name - thus symbolizing the James Bond series' final separation from all things SPECTRE and its legal-rights-claimer Kevin McClory (the producer of Thunderball and its non-UA remake Never Say Never Again) in one of the best "teaser" sequences of all time.

Holy crap! How could I have forgotten that sequence? I wonder why Broccoli, et. al., took so long between movies to do that. I was pretty sure Blofeld died in Diamonds and that they just 'resurrected' him for a fun opening sequence.

One of the things that makes Bond really appealing to me is the music, more specifically, the title songs. I have the Bond, James Bond CD with all the music minus The World is Not Enough. I put my favorites as follows:

1) A View to a Kill (hands down the best--love that 80's DuranDuran stuff)
2) Goldfinger (Shirley Bassy has the coolest voice for JB themes)
3) Live and Let Die (great McCartney music minus any noticeable Linda vocals)
4) License to Kill (while the movie is excreble, Gladys Knight does a kickin job with this song)
5) Goldeneye (I'm more surprised than anyone that I'm putting this in my top five. I think it's a good throwback song in the vein of Thunderball and Goldfinger but with an updated sound.)
6-10) In no particular order: We Have All the Time In the World (OHMSS), The Living Daylights, For Your Eyes Only, Nobody Does it Better (TSWLM), and Tomorrow Never Dies.

I think the music has gotten much better as the series has progressed. While Thunderball and From Russia With Love have the feel of the classic Bond movies, the music itself doesn't seem to be as timeless as Goldfinger. I'm leaning more towards the later themes because I find myself humming along with them more than the older ones. To me they're catchier and more interesting.

Who'll be doing the title song from DAD?

I've never thought about in those terms but that makes sense to me now. Damn Kevin McClory. I think reinstating a major terrorist organization like SPECTRE would be cool for the Bond Series. Have a reoccuring master criminal over three or four films before a final showdown with 007 in the last film.

BTW, Pendo. Bond didn't "die" in the novel FRWL. He was hospitalized for several months and then got sent on a crap asignment to Jamaica in Dr. No because his superiors didn't have faith he could do his job anymore. They even made him turn his Baretta for a Walther PPK...

I'm not doubting the veracity of your list, EP, but I find it really hard to believe that Moonraker was written as the third book. Even the movie was really farfetched as to what was technologically feasible at the time, but it at least came out when NASA was putting together the space shuttle program.

Also, where's Octo*****, A View to a Kill, and The Living Daylights? I know that those were written by IF because License to Kill was the first JB movie not based on a preexisting Ian Fleming book or story.

Holy crap! How could I have forgotten that sequence? I wonder why Broccoli, et. al., took so long between movies to do that. I was pretty sure Blofeld died in Diamonds and that they just 'resurrected' him for a fun opening sequence.

One of the things that makes Bond really appealing to me is the music, more specifically, the title songs. I have the Bond, James Bond CD with all the music minus The World is Not Enough.

I think the music has gotten much better as the series has progressed. While Thunderball and From Russia With Love have the feel of the classic Bond movies, the music itself doesn't seem to be as timeless as Goldfinger. I'm leaning more towards the later themes because I find myself humming along with them more than the older ones. To me they're catchier and more interesting.Broccoli and company took so long to finish off Blofeld because McClory had tied them up in court for YEARS over the rights to the character and SPECTRE, and the rights to make his own non-UA James Bond films. McClory won the right to make his films right around the time FYEO was starting preprodution so it apparently seemed like the right time to finish it off and thumb their noses at McClory's "Never Say Never Again" at the same time.

I never thought Blofeld died in Diamonds though, his pod looked pretty secure and all Bond did to it was swing it into stuff that exploded, IIRC.

I have "The Best of Bond... James Bond" cd (the one up till TND) as well as the TND soundtrack (the one with Sheryl Crow singing the title, KD Lang singing the awesome original title song which became the end-credits song "Surrender", and the Moby 007 remix) and the Europe-exclusive CD-single of TWINE's theme song by Garbage (multiple versions of the tune plus a bonus instrumental piece from the film). I actually skip right over "We Have All the Time In the World" whenever I play the disc, that's how little I care for that tune. Most of the songs are great, my favs are:

- Living Daylights
- A View to a Kill
- Goldfinger
- Live and Let Die
- Goldeneye

Honestly though, it's a very close race between 'em all. I play them in film order even though the disc has 'em all mixed up. I think the songs have been fairly consistant throughout the series' run, each era with 1 stinker. ;)

I think the theme to License To Kill is probably on the top 5 "most marketed 007 songs", I'm always hearing it on the radio. FYEO and All Time High (Octopusy) seem to get a lot of radio play as well.

I was wondering, on your Bond, James Bond disc, is "Nobody Does It Better" extra quiet? Because on mine it is and it's really weird.



EP, I was kinda hoping the Janus syndicate from Goldeneye would take over SPECTRE's role for a few movies, maybe having 006 teach them a bunch of MI6 tricks of the trade, making them super tough to beat. But all for not, instead we got Elliot Carver and Electra King (bleah, while I really like TND, I hate TWINE yet both have the same flaw, crappy villains).

In the original novel, it was merely a 3-stage rocket that Drax was building. All that hooey and nonsense in the film about a super race..well, that was crap that the filmamkers threw into the crappiest Bond film ever: Moonraker. They often ditched the original premise of the novel and only kept the title. For instance, The Man with the Golden Gun is about Bond getting brainwashed by the Soviets and has nothing to do with a three nippled Scaramanga.

Octo*****, VTAK, and Living Daylights were all short stories Fleming's estate published after the novels. They appeared in Playboy and other magazines.

That's so funny JT because I've never heard LTK outside of actually seeing the movie or listening to the soundtrack compilation. Is it only on those adult contemporary stations? The only one I ever hear on a regular basis is VtaK cause the 80's station I listen to slathers it between cuts of Bon Jovi and Thompson Twins.

About the Nobody Does It Better being softer, I've never really noticed a big difference in volume. Hence I think probably not or else I'd have to crank it up every time. This beginning section is somewhat quieter than most songs, but then it builds in volume. That's just how it was recorded.

It's playing in stores mostly, so STAR 98.6 and stations like that - easy modern adult semi-soft rock or whatever they call it. I spent years working in stores that wouldn't change the station and when I quit, it's still on the radio in stores today... drives me nuts, you could set your watch by their programming dept, same stuff every day for 12 years.

Hot on the trail of the principle villains, Bond travels to Iceland where he experiences at first hand the power of an amazing new weapon before a dramatic confrontation with his main adversary back in Korea where it all started...

Some of the films are only loosely based on books or draw bits and pieces from various Fleming stories. Octo***** drew some inspiration from "Property of a Lady." The title appears in the movie when Bond steals the Faberge Egg at Sotheby's.

Cleese WILL be Q in DAD. Q stands for Quartermaster which was Llewellyn's job in the Bond films. Because Cleese was his replacement he will now be known as Q. Calling him R in TWINE was just one of 007's jokes! "If you're Q does that make him R?"

Here's some Die Another Day news from Lee Tamahori (Director of DAD)

The director of the new James Bond movie says he's included a steamy love scene in the film. He says it will be up to censors to decide whether it should be cut.

Lee Tamahori says he wanted to include a more raunchy sex scene in Die Another Day. "In lovemaking, Bond's PG requirements have traditionally meant you can only show post-coital sex," he tells Vanity Fair.

"You know, clothes strewn around the room, the camera slowly pans over to the bed... But we thought, why couldn't Bond have the best lay of his life?

"So we shot a very hot love scene. Whether it survives the censor's cut, or the producers, we'll see."
Does this mean he is aiming for a PG movie and not a 12 (PG-13) like the latest Bond films? It also looks like we'll get some good cut scenes on the DVD :D! This report comes from Ananova.com (http://www.ananova.com).

Actually, it was a suppressed Beretta M92F melting the ice. That's what Halle Barry is using in the teaser poster. Bond still uses the P99, which has nearly every advantage over the PPK--9mm bullets rather than 7.65mm, 16 rounds instead of 7, longer range, better accuracy, better grip, etc. etc. etc. The only advantage the PPK has is that it's smaller. :D

We've got Halle Berry in her Honey Ryder bikini :D, a villain with a secret base which we've not had since Drax's moon base, and there are lots of other little things to make it more like the originals so I'm hoping the PPK will be one of them!

I finally decided to start my own 007 marathon, I'm watching them all IN ORDER ! I have 2 of them on DVD, and that's it. Plus, I can't remember what I have and have not seen, so I'm sweeping through the whole series (haven't decided yet if I'll include Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again).

So I started this weekend with Dr. No, it's pretty cool !
Bond has some great lines, and since I'm thinking about Honey Ryder right now, I'll refer you to her question of
"are you looking for shells?"
"No, just looking." :D :D :D

Oh, and what a delight that Dr. No fella was! When he started on about his German father and Chinese mother ? I had a total Austin Powers flashback to my favorite scene in the whole series, when Dr. Evil talks about his parents . . . okay, I know that's somehow disrespectful to the Bond series :rolleyes: but I don't care because I just love it!

I too am at the Halle Berry-saturation point. Great, you won your Oscar, now just go away.

I think the main teaser poster with just HB and PB is the first for a JB movie where they are actually showing the face of the Bond girl. Usually you just get body shots like in Goldfinger or For Your Eyes Only. Nope I take that back. Octo***** (Maud Adams) was shown with Roger Moore.

This poster seems more blatant with HB like UA is trying to capitalize on her star power to sell tix. It says to me, "Pierce can't sell as many seats by himself, " or "The JB franchise can't hold its own."

I can only hope Jinx is only in the movie sparingly like DM in EP1 and that UA is hyping her solely because of her greater (**vomit**) popularity.

ManCan, if you saw Tomorrow Never Dies, the character of Wai Lin there is the basis for the character here, so I think she's supposed to be Bond's love interest and equal. Since she's been rewritten and padded for HB, it's possible they'll have her start as Bond's opposition like Wai Lin was in TND just for a little backstory/build-up.

You don't need QuickTime. Go to jamesbond.com and you can see it with Windows Media Player.

What do you guys think of the new DAD Title Song by Madonna (http://mbnet.fi/drowned/mundo/DAD/dieanotherday.mp3)?

I'm not sure if I like it yet, it's totaly different, futuristic, and not sure if it will fit in with the others. Perhaps it just needs to grow on you.

Your thoughts?

First of all Sean Connery is by far the best and comparing SW to Bond? It is like comparing eating fruit or poo. SW is in another(higher)league.

Haven't heard it, but it isn't sounding good- I miss the days of the John Barry Orchestra

Some news on the theme song from CommanderBond.net. Apparently it wasn't the movie version, but a re-mixed version. The real version of the song is apparently more natural and more like a Bond song. Let's hope so anyway! Click here (http://www.commanderbond.net/Public/Stories/1573-1.shtml) :).

Keep checking http://www.apple.com/trailers and http://www.jamesbond.com because some time tonight (or probably tomorrow morning for me :rolleyes: ) the new DAD trailer will be online. It will be shown on Access Hollywood tonight and will be online as soon as it's finished there. Can anyone tell me what time Access Hollywood is on over there so I can have a rough guess at when the trailer will be online?

I'm liking the new International posted for Meurs Un Autre Jour, aka Die Another Day.

I like the way it is set up, it's like the posters for the older Bond movies :).

What do you guys think?

Saw the video for the tune, it's definitely near the bottom of my Bond-music list, I won't bother buying the soundtrack or even the single (whereas I actively tracked down the TWINE single by Garbage even though it was a Europe-only release).

That poster doesn't do it for me, but so far, no DAD poster has. They put up the individual character versions all over town here and I cannot stand "Frost", she looks like she's been cracked in the coconut with a hammer and doesn't mind. I hope the film is good because the ad campaign here in the US so far has sucked.

I can't wait to scrape up enough dough to get the SE DVD pack that came out yesterday, that looks killer.
