I've watched No Time to Die three times now and I have some technical advice for people who are planning to go.

Refreshing to see Shatner's reaction to the experience. He's clearly moved and very quick to communicate his feelings whilst the others spray champagne and giggle and hug. No judgements on that at...

Connery is still the only OO7 that I can imagine ruthlessly killing someone. Not necessarily for Queen and country but because his boss M ordered it.

Craig’s Bond had the same loyalty to M (Judy...

It sounds like you're talking about "No Time To Die"....which I do like a lot. I'm asking about the dire Brosnan flick from 2002.

Can someone please defend "Die Another Day" to me? I think it's an abomination. Practically no redeeming features aside from just one of two scenes. Terrible script and terrible direction IMO. Way,...

That was actually a very, very well paid Sean Connery returning to the role post-Lazenby.

I think the first four OO7 movies by Connery are the best really (minus Goldfinger...sorry!). I highly...

America didn’t. Coffee with or without ‘room’ (for milk)…is the necessary order. I’ve been stared at blankly when asking for black coffee. 😬

Calculating orbital mechanics always impressed me with respect to Apollo's 8-17 (minus 9) getting to the moon; now I'm going to be equally impressed by JWST missing the moon! :-p

It would be refreshing to be able to discuss UFO/UAP’s without the distraction of getting hung up on one of the (IMHO) least likely “explanations” for them. We need hard data. I suppose if we had...

I wonder what kind of condition the ISS interior is in these days; considering it's been in orbit for twenty-odd years now. Presumably there are one or two dents and scrapes. Wear and tear from a...

That’s a shame. I recall him with fondness. A clear communicator with a cheeky smile and if I recall, some amusing walks! 😄

Condolences to his family and friends.
