Episode 98.5 — Minisode 98.5

Recommended Posts

 

 

I almost always get a chuckle out of stupid puns and those sorts of lines, but most of the 'quips' in this aren't remotely funny, or in some cases, it's like there's not even a joke there. Like one time, the cops that are chasing him get blocked by a train or stuck on train tracks or something, and he says something (in his "quip" tone) about them being on the wrong track. THAT'S NOT A JOKE. IT'S JUST WHAT'S HAPPENING.

For sure! It usually starts out with "looks like someone is..." LITERALLY doing or saying what they're doing or saying.

 

Let me try this out. *ahem*

 

"It looks like PlanBFromOuterSpace isn't a fan of nonsensical jokes that aren't jokes."

Paul!!! On the futuristic movie "Repo Men" (2010) there is a scene where on the background on a street screen a trailer for "The Fast and the Furious X" plays

 

Both movies are produced by Universal, Relativity Media and Dentsu

 

Now that I think about it, its the exact same joke they did in "Back To The Future Part II" with the fake "Jaws 19" holographic movie... And Jaws and BTTF are also produced by Universal

 

 

P.S.: Thanks for the double mention :D

I liked how at the end of the credits it says in all caps "JAMES BOND WILL RETURN", as if to say "WE KNOW, WE'RE VERY SORRY AND WE'LL DO BETTER NEXT TIME"

From what I heard, nobody does it better.

So who were the co-hosts for the "View to a Kill" and "Xanadu" episodes anyway? They were both recorded at Largo on 12/5 and there were 200 something people in the audience for each of those shows.

Dolph and Grace were the perfect couple.

They are the funniest couple, because apparently Dolph was a bouncer at European night club and Grace Jones showed up one night, took a liking to him, and the next thing you know, he's killing Apollo Creed on screen.

 

Life is weird.

I remember watching this as a young kid and there was the implied sex scene between Roger Moore and Grace Jones. Even as a seven-year-old, I shook my head at that. There is no amount of quantum mechanics that would produce a universe where someone with a body like Grace Jones to have sex with someone with a body like Roger Moore. This took me right out of the movie...and I was just a kid. The technobabble goobledly-goop on Transformers was more believable.

Oh, it's not just implied. He basically manipulates the situation so she HAS to have sex with him even though she doesn't want to. I believe there is a word for that...

 

The more I think about this movie, the more I fucking hate it.

I thought it was Christopher Walken basically telling her to fuck him. I could be wrong I've watch A View to a Kill in the last like 6 months or so but I haven't seen in recently.

AVTAK: One of the worst Bonds...but the absolute BEST Bond theme song.

 

A View to a Kill by Duran Duran is such a JAM.

 

Close second Bond theme song? The Living Daylights

Kind of...

 

What happens is at the horse auction Bond runs in to May Day and says a normal Bond-ish line. Something like, "I look forward to your personal attention later." Flirty, but kind of innocuous. That night, he goes off with Sir Godfrey and they basically fuck up. Zorin and May Day suspect St. John-Smyth (Bond) of snooping so they race to his room to catch him in the act. She opens the door and he already in bed. He looks up at her and says something to the effect of, "Ah, I have been waiting for some of that personal attention..." I don't remember the exact lines, but I think there is definitely some eyebrow work. Zorin, out of Bond's view and not wanting to blow THEIR cover, nods to her and she gets into bed with him. She has absolutely no say in the matter.

 

I mean, I don't mind Bond getting him some action, that's what he is all about, but usually they set it up that the girl wants to be with him too. And I'm not saying this was Bond's plan from the get-go, but he probably knows Zorin is right outside the door, so he is doing it all as a big "fuck you," like "I'm going to fuck your girlfriend now, because I know you don't want to reveal yourself, so you HAVE to let me do this." He could have just as easily said when she enters his room, "I'm sorry, is something the matter?" and that would have been that.

 

Bottom line: May Day is given absolutely zero agency. It is like the writers/producers thought, "Hey, this broad can lift dudes over her head. That's a strong, female character, right?"

I love "The Living Daylights!" To anyone who thinks a-ha's only song is "Take on Me" you should really check out their greatest hits. "The Sun Only Shines on TV" is another great song!

In other words, she's a woman in a 007 movie.

Yes, I agree with you, and, yes, Bond movies are misogynistic. That's nothing new. However, usually the women are shown to be into him too, if not initially, they are either won over by his "charm" or the plan is to seduce him to kill him or whatever. At no point in the movie does she show any interest in him and even looks as though the very idea kind of disgusts her*. If at the auction there was a shot of her giving him the once over, then I wouldn't mind as much; that would just be a Bond movie being a Bond movie. However, I'd argue that most Bond women are supposed to represent some kind of male sexual wish fulfillment. In this case the wish seems to be, "Wouldn't it be awesome for Bond to have sex with a woman, not because she thinks he is suave or handsome or because she thinks he's an okay dude, but because she has no choice?"

 

In this regard, I think May Day is set apart from your typical Bond woman.

 

*I am editing to concede, that the problem is probably the assumption that Bond is just that awesome that ALL women, even if they hate him or want to kill him, want to bone Bond. Which brings me back to Shariq's original post where he said there is no universe where Grace Jones and Roger Moore (well past his prime) would have sex. In which case, the problem is a casting issue. Moore, at this point in his career as Bond, has no chance in Hell of pulling that off.

For an amazing podcast double feature I recommend listening to James Bonding: Goldfinger followed by Casino Royale. The contrast between Bonds and between guest reactions is amazing. And now I'll never be able to hear the line "not well" again with a straight face.

 

"How did he die?"

 

"In a well...."

 

Allie and Georgia's comments on Goldfinger were pretty dead-on. Contrast that with the squee-athon that is Casino Royale.

 

My personal favourite (podcasts), are Man With The Golden Gun, as frankly I could listen to Proops reading the phone book, and that guy knows his shit about 70's movies. Plus, has a fandom for Maud Adams which is pretty damn funny too. Diamonds Are Forever, with Doug Benson, and Scheer's appearance on OHMSS.

"A View to a Kill" is basically Walken doing a great Walken imitation, surrounded by a pretty bad movie. I would put this Walken performance almost up there with "Seven Psychopaths," "Suicide Kings," "Biloxi Blues," and "Annie Hall." His smile right before he dies is an AWESOME choice. I might take Walken and Barden as the best Bond villains. By the way, check out Walken's IMDB. WTF? "The Deer Hunter," "Balls of Fury," "King of New York," "The Country Bears," "Domino," "Kangaroo Jack," etc.? My theory is that Walken has two agents, one who went to NYU film school and one who is illiterate and hates him.

Yeah, Grace Jones is basically passed around like a toy in that scene. Crazy! It comes full around in the new Casino Royale where Bond has sex with a woman who has been a prostitute her whole life. The takeaway from that scene is supposed to be that Bond has such good D that he makes her forget about all of the sexual exploitation in her life.

Walken takes any job that comes along his way. In interviews he says that if his schedule is open, he's doing the part, period. That's why he was in the live action disaster known as Brian Williams Buys His Daughter A Part in Peter Pan on NBC.

No. I was saying that the good agent suggested roles in movies 1, 3, and 5; and the bad agent suggested roles in movies 2, 4, and 6. It's a split personality thing. But since you asked, I live in a universe narrated by Morgan Freeman.

I'm jealous, I've only got Daniel Stern, it was great when I was coming of age but now I'm 29 and it's just weird.
