At the movies


#7546

Yup. Never had an issue with that one either. Good locations, topical villain, played to an over the top hammy perfection.


#7547

I quite liked Roger Moore. He took the p!ss out of it. Daniel Craig is okay but the movies have become just another franchise.


#7548

He had to take the ■■■■ out of it, as Bond he was about as threatening as a sneeze. He made a good Saint, way back when, but the Saint was a different type of character altogether when compared to Bond.


#7549

Lol. :smile: Agreed.

Easily the most pathetic of the Bonds.


#7550

Agree with that too. My favorite role he played was alongside Tony Curtis in “The Persuaders”, which was the one Adult show I was allowed to watch as a 6 or 7 year old kid.

Wish I could find that series somewhere today and see how it holds up against my memory of it.


#7551

You could probably find an episode or few on You Tube.


#7552

The Saint was great and still stands up. And he started life as Ivanhoe. Much under-rated. He had a style and it was good and it was successful.


#7553

The Roger Moore judo chop was very funny.
I found Jaws genuinely scary as a kid.


#7554

Cheers Jack. I did look there years ago, and keep forgetting how much stuff is up there these days, there appears to be heaps of Eps. !! :+1:

The Pilot. Ep 1. Will have a watch tonight.


#7555

l think l remember the pilot episode a little. Tony picks up a beautiful hitchhiker in his Dino Ferrari, only to be outdone by Rog picking up 3 - 4 lovelies in his Aston Martin. l remember seeing a lot of Minder episodes a couple of years ago on YT. l tried to watch Cracker as well, but the versions uploaded were in some strange format, and the quality was uneven. A pity.

Oi!!!

Fecken SPOILER alert!! Sheesh! :smirk:


#7557

The last good cry movie I watched was A Dogs Purpose and the only movie I watched again recently, cry in happiness, cry in reason and cry in sadness


#7558

Yeah watched the whole lot over the last couple of weeks. Richard Roxburgh was also the villain in Sean Connerys last film. Rake is a bit like the portrait of Kramer in one of the Seinfeld episodes. I can’t look away.


#7559

Watched all the persuaders on YouTube. I need to get a life.


#7560

Roger Moore was also Beau Maverick, the English cousin of Bart and Bret.

The Saint used to be on Fox Classics on a Saturday morning. In one episode, Simon Templar was in Italy. Warren Mitchell was his cab driver, Ronnie Corbett was the bellboy and Oliver Reed the baddie.

And what a disgrace to the Saint theme was that Val Kilmer movie. Not the vaguest resemblance to Simon Templar of the books and TV series.


#7561

I’d forgotten Beau Maverick. Good get.


#7562

He was unmistakable, he always wore a white jacket.


#7563

I remember him now. He was my favourite. But he wasn’t in many episodes. Mostly it was Bart or Bret.

Who is the tall dark stranger there?
Maverick is his name…


#7564

Us that the new Robin Hood movies that’s taken a hammering from everyone


#7565

There is only one good Robin Hood movie.
