Alright, so I'm thinking of doing a Bondathon today. I have plenty of hours to spare, so I'm thinking 3 or 4 maybe even 5. Keeping in minds I've just recently seen DN, FRWL, DAF, TND and TWINE, whihc ones should I watch that sort of tie in with each other. For example, TB, OHMSS, FYEO, TWINE and QOS all sort of intertwine with the snow, water, revenge themes as well as similar scenes throughout. Characters are similar, with Domino, Melina, Elektra and Camille all wanting revenge of some sort, etc etc. So which Bond films should I watch today? :)

None. Do some homework. tongue

As for some actual advice, considering I dont watch Bond films in patterns and have barely watched one that isnt OHMSS on my DVD for ages... I'm going to say go with YOLT. Or OP. Good, exciting but not too taxing, middle of the day Bond films.

DN/FRWL/GF is the ultimate triple bill.

Last year I was going to attend a double bill of GF/TB but sadly that did not pan out.

Triple: DN/FRWL/TB

As far as my ultimate Bond film goes, I can't really think of an ideal way to shoehorn OHMSS into a double or triple, as the continuity is crap from the previous film (not to mention YOLT being crap anyway IMO) and the subsequent film, which doesn't star Lazenby and acts like his film never existed. OHMSS truly stands on it's own too much for me. Would only work the way I'd like it to in a double had Lazenby made one more film. So as such, I'd just go with a classic triple of Terence Young heaven and the three films in which Connery looks arsed.

DN / FRWL / YOLT

Three of the best-looking Bond films; I imagine they'd be awesome to look at on the big screen.

Casino Royale / Quantum Of Solace / Goldeneye / The World Is Not Enough

Why this be intresting:

Imagine Casino Royale be the follow up of LTK. It wil look lie he must try to get his 007 back after he lose it in LTK and also must proof this with a new job. Goldeneye jump 9 years in time and have a older Tanner, whyle QOS have a younger Tanner.

It wil look like QOS maintitle predict what happend 2 movies later: The fall of Mi6 in Twine.

The King family story stil wil be a new thing Bond discover about M as in the original order but the feeling be a litle bit difrent with the Mother story between M and Bond because it is now After CR/QOS, suport by a extra movie in between make Twine the 4th movie not the 3th. and also the end of Twine wil give you another feeling. In the light of Vesper and the earlier violence in CR and dry Bond in QOS.

Moneypenny and Q are not in CR/QOS, if Goldeneye be number 3 it look like there finaly return and also in Goldeneye M said something about the coldwar in the dinosaur line. This dinosaur line it wil look like she means what he did in CR and Charles be introduced in Twine.

James Bond will return in Tomorrow Never Dies.

Double feature:

OHMSS/AVTAK, the youngest Bond actor performance(age 29) followed the oldest Bond actor performance(age 57). Both also feature snow action, John Barry music scores, and Bond impersonating a stuffy Englishman at the villain's HQ in order to spy on him.

Double Bills:

Octopussy and The Living Daylights- both feature a Cold War plot and two main villains

Dr. No and From Russia with Love- both feature the early introductions of SPECTRE, and the latter partially carries off of the former what with the mention of Dr. No's death and the reappearance of Sylvia Trench

On Her Majesty's Secret Service and For Your Eyes Only- If watching back-to-back, then Blofeld's neck injury is further used and the bald Blofeld approach is continued; also, Tracy's death is immediately followed upon in FYEO. Both feature a more realistic approach to Bond after their respective sci-fi predecessors.

Live and Let Die and License to Kill- David Hedison stars as Felix Leiter in both, and both feature a drug-related plot with the main villains being drug dealers themselves.

You Only Live Twice and Diamonds Are Forever- Both space-related in SPECTRE's plan, both feature an older and less believable Connery performance; also, both feature a more campy version of Blofeld

The Spy Who Loved Me and Tomorrow Never Dies- both feature two countries squaring off against one another as a result of the main villain's diabolical plans, and both take place at sea for a large portion of the movie; both feature a really strong and obediant henchman, Jaws and Stamper.

I imagine seeing Goldfinger and Thunderball on the big screen is something different, anyone here seen them together? I remember an interview with Peter Hunt where he said some of the sets (I think he specified the set for the the scene with Smithers) don't look even close to how they do on the big screen on home video.
Very true. Especially a scope film like TB. I've seen DN and TB theatrically of the pre-'95 films and they do have a greater impact especially, TB being 2.35 scope and from an original Technicolor print which may have been three strip imbition printed with extremely vibrant color. The poor Lowry print of DN couldn't compare at all. :twisted:

I think the best ones are all in chronological order, usually in double bills. A triple of DN-FRWL-GF would be beyond ideal.
Of course I wouldn't be adverse to TSWLM-MR or YOLT-TSWLM or anything else.

Triple Bills

You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me, and Tomorrow Never Dies- the latter two are somewhat recycled and rehashed plots of YOLT, and all three have more emphasis on action than story, and all three feature heavy use of gadgetry.

On Her Majesty's Secret Service, License to Kill, and Quantum of Solace- all three feature Bond going rouge against MI6 orders, and all three deal with Bond's effects of losing someone close to them- Tracy, Della, and Vesper

I remember Dad took us to see a double billing of From Russia With Love and Goldfinger when we were still in Italy.

I think the year was 1968.

I can ask Dad, he might still remember; but I think that was the first time we've seen a Bond film.

I feel for you. I was at a drive-in triple-bill of DN/FRWL/GF in '72, but the people I was with insisted on leaving 2/3 of the way through. GF remains the only Bond film I have NEVER seen on the big screen.

OOBeast suggests The Spy Who Lives Twice Never Dies pts 1, 2 & 3 back to back. Not a bad plan, but pairing films up based on how rehashed similar they are makes the latter ones harder to enjoy, doesn't it?

But, in the vein of the topic, I propose:

Dr. No & LALD: Both send a first-time Bond to Jamaica.
FRWL & FYEO: Both send Bond after a code transmitter in a down-to earth manner.
GF & OP: Gold, jewels, smuggling, Atomic bombs, girls named Pussy...
TB & TSWLM: Submarines! Scuba divers! More atomic bombs!
YOLT & MR: You'll never call YOLT 'OTT' again.
MR & DAD: You'll never call DAD 'OTT' again.
OHMSS & CR: 5 hours of love & death for two more first-timers.
DAF & TMWTGG: Everything that made Christmas 71 & 74 for me.
NSNA & AVTAK: The only way to make NSNA look better than an EON film.
TLD & LTK: Dalton. ('Nuff said.)
GE & TND: Brosnan vs Brosnan - the only fair matchup for him.
TWINE & QoS: See NSNA & AVTAK.

As for triple-bills, just show them in order of release - that way you get:

A Connery triple-bill;
A Connery double-feature with George;
Connery with a Moore double-feature;
A Moore triple-bill;
A Moore/Connery sandwich (down, Aural Sects!)
Dalton X 2 + Brosnan (here it might make sense to watch the GE PTS first, then TLD & LTK, then the rest of GE - it would go a long way towards explaining Tim's initial dourness in Bratislava, and Pierce's lightening up in Monaco).
A Brosnan triple bill, after which you will be rewarded (next year) with
A Daniel Craig triple bill.

Just leave out CR '67 and this will work out just fine.

Would have been better if they followed the novels, because they would both feature Quarrel and had a sort of continuity (as all Fleming basically do).

OHMSS / You Only Live Twice / Diamonds Are Forever: They all have something in common, and not simply Spectre, which also was mentioned in Dr No and in FRWL and Thunderball. They all have Blofeld. But I chose another order because this makes more sense:
If OHMSS takes place before Bond meets Blofeld, he can operate undercover. We can ignore the fact Blofeld presents himself in YOLT being just "I am Blofeld, the guy you met in the last movie" and not necessary "I'm the boss of SPECTRE Blofeld, and you see me for the first time" (I hope I made it clear).

Also, DAF very first scene takes place in Japan, like if the movie was a direct sequel of YOLT.

Why are so many people convinced that beginning DAF in Japan means that EON was trying to 'erase' OHMSS?

Bond had to start his second hunt for Blofeld somewhere, so presumably he started with old SPECTRE assets whom Blofeld might have contacted after leaving Switzerland (there was a flicker of recognition in the Egyptian's eyes just before Bond slugged him - perhaps they'd already had this 'conversation' during Operation Bedlam?).

"You've been on holiday, I understand - relaxing, I hope?" Just as many people think this line means that Bond had been off-duty for the past 4 1/2 years. I assume it means he'd been on bereavement leave. "Hardly relaxing, but most satisfying." Indeed - he believes he's avenged his bride's death, and is now ready to get on with life (hence not belting Moneypenny for requesting a diamond ring).

Someone once suggested that having the overture to GoldenEye take place in 1986 meant that EON was 'erasing' Timothy Dalton's era from the timeline. What rubbish. GoldenEye was meant to be a post-cold war story which sprang from events that occurred just before the fall of the Soviet union - which happened in 1989, after LTK was released. I think the apparent death of Trevelyan may be (in retrospect) what made Bond so dour and sick of 'wet' work in TLD. GoldenEye was originally supposed to star Dalton, and I'm sure that the overture would have played out just the same way - so what would be 'erased' then?

The Bond series' continuity has been elastic from the start, when EON filmed Dr. No (Fleming's sixth book) first, followed by the fifth book second.
