That's OK, neither do most English people

@Kidfried You're doing a fine job thusfar, as I'd completely agree with your assessment of Madonna's vocal performance and the aggressive edge she gives the song (which makes it work really well with the film's pre-title sequence, showing Bond undergoing torture). I'm always the one looking for the message and meaning and I love the idea of the song being Bond's inner monologue; chaotic and erratic, but also defiant and angry.

Genuinely thought I was the only person who liked that about it, too. I also quite like a lot of the remixed versions, including the one played over the end credits. Yes, it's cheesy, but it's of-the-moment and the rest of David Arnold's score is layered with techno, which is awesome.

I was being cheeky earlier; @KALofKRYPTON speaks the truth about the song. I guess Bond being such a long and varied franchise, it really does just depend on which ones find you at the right age.

@KALofKRYPTON @RogerRoger I'll get round to watching it when I can. It was on Now TV and then they had the nerve to take it off! Outrageous.

All this talk of Bond themes got me thinking about my favourite tunes. I may have listed them a while back when I watched the films. I can't say "Die Another Day" is a favourite. I am not a fan of Madonna's post Ray of Light material and feel that song is a tad over-produced with weak vocals.
"A View to a Kill" is a great '80's tune. I'm not too familiar with Duran Duran, but they kill it with that song. "Nobody Does it Better" is a classic and the Louis Armstrong "We Have All the Time in the World" is simply beautiful. Have to give a mention to "Goldeneye". The song is strange, but I love Tina Turner.

Not a Sam Smith fan so have to agree with the sentiments here regarding his Spectre song!

Dammit now I want to watch James Bond.

Hi all 👋, I’m not one for usually checking out the forums but noticed this thread on the homepage, so.......
Has anybody seen The Invitation? It’s currently on Netflix in the UK, and had been on my ‘to watch’ list for ages, as I’d only heard good things about it. I watched it the other day and I thought it was amazing and I was totally engrossed. For reference, I’m a fan of horror movies, and I’d best describe The Invitation as a non-feel good, very intense, non-action thriller, and leave it at that. If you’re planning to watch it, I’d recommend going in completely blind so that you don’t dampen the impact. And what an impact 🤯

@WanderingBullet Aladdin is the 2nd best Disney animated movie after The Lion King, and it's the two we're getting next! This trailer seems to have perfectly captured the feel of the original, so I have a lot of faith in this movie. I just wonder if Will Smith will be able to match Robbie Williams as the genie.

@Tjuz I'll hold off any excitement until it's confirmed that there's to be no standard Guy Ritchie "here's the plan lads..." montage...

Also, Lion King is boring trash (apart from Timon & Pumba) - ripped off boring trash at that!

@Tjuz I liked quite a few of Disney's old animated movies. It's a shame that hand-drawn movies in Hollywood is a dying art.

Yeah, Will Smith's got big shoes to fill. I do wonder what the tone of this movie is gonna be like. Will his version of the genie be a more serious version or funny like the original?

@KALofKRYPTON I'm not sure if I've ever heard an opinion more wrong than saying The Lion King is boring trash. It's a fantastic movie and I will not accept hearing otherwise!

@WanderingBullet For sure. I really miss 2D animated movies. There was an art and admiration to them that I just don't feel with the 3D equivalents, even though they can be good in their own right (Monsters, Inc. probably being the best). The Princess and the Frog being anything but a breakout hit surely didn't help matters though. I hope they keep the genie funny instead of opting for a more serious version, and I should think they're doing that considering Will Smith is a pretty funny guy.

@Tjuz
It's such a dull film. Even my little girl was bored with it when she had her 'everything Disney' phase.

Also, trash ripoff!

@FullbringIchigo No, no - I'm not talking (so called) inspirational literary sources - I'm talking scene for scene and down to conceptual level ripoff of another cartoon.

It's kinda crazy that Disney has three live-action movies (first Dumbo, followed by Aladdin and then Lion King after that) releasing in 2019.

But I'm most excited for Avengers 4, John Wick 3 and Spider-man: Far From Home. And then there's Shazam! and Wonder Woman 2 as well.

Currently, looking forward to see the new Hellboy reboot trailer.

@KALofKRYPTON You can have ripoff, but that doesn't make it any less of a fantastic movie! I don't think it's dull at all, I even rewatched it earlier this year and time flew by. No amount of undeserved trashing of The Lion King will change my mind!
