Gorgeous beaches, exilarating surfing (not that I'm a good judge), and great music, including some by the guys in the movie! Newcastle is an interesting backdrop for a movie, with the looming freighters off shore and the old buildings. Love it!

WHAMO!! Here comes the fun.If only there were Oscar Awards for keeping a straight face - I'm thoroughly impressed on however they did it.Enjoy this, and relish every high camp moment.And don't forget the Shark Repellent.5 out of 5 spins in the Batmobile
Filius S (kr) wrote: After my brutal disappointment with Goldfinger, it took me a while to muster up the courage to watch Thunderball, but I'm glad I did it. Taking the reins back from Guy Hamilton, Terence Young returns as director for his third Bond film, and it really makes a difference. Gone are the boring villains with stupid plans, and shitty locations. Tropical islands, high-stakes card games in fancy casinos and a plot involving a bomb and a bunch of money are introduced to take their place. Bond begins the movie by killing a SPECTRE agent and escaping in a jetpack as henchman wildly fire their guns at him in one of the most brilliant displays of someone never having received basic firearms training. Shortly afterwards, Bond takes some time off to have some R&R, but while at the spa he pretty much immediately starts his spying up, and ends up nearly getting killed in some bizarre body stretching contraption. Meanwhile, SPECTRE agent No. 2, the eye patch wearing Emilio Largo, manages to get his hands on atomic bombs and with the help of SPECTRE he holds the US and the UK hostage demanding a 100 million ransom. This sends Bond over to the Bahamas to find Largo, take him down, and save the world. As you can see, the plot is considerably more interesting and sane than it was in Goldfinger, and that's a great start. The villain is also a lot more cunning and ruthless, consistently managing to get out of corners that 007 thinks he has him trapped in. The tropical backdrop, and fancy hotels, yachts, casinos, and meeting rooms also seem much more at home for Bond who parades around them with his cocky swagger. The fight sequences are also extensively choreographed (unlike previous films where Bond would often dispatch henchmen with judo chops), and the film culminates a large underwater battle with western intelligence agency units facing off against SPECTRE mercenaries. The only thing that hurts the competency of the fight sequences is the frantic use of undercranking, intended to make every action look faster and more intense, but having the inadvertent effect of making everyone move around too quickly like some Charlie Chaplinesque actor from an old-timey movie where the cameraman wasn't turning the crank fast enough. There's also the typical use of green screen for dangerous chase sequences, which isn't a big deal, but gets to be a bit fucky when it's combined with the aforementioned undercranking problems and repeating the same shot over and over in the vehicle windows you're supposedly looking through. TL;DR - 7/10It's certainly not the best Bond film, but it's pretty competent as far as action movies go. The locations are interesting, the plot is intriguing and relatively believable, and the villain is a great choice who ends up being pretty menacing. It's also the only Bond movie where 007 runs around mostly in white short shorts/swim trunks that look so much like underwear that it gives off the appearance that he forgot to put on pants when going out to fight SPECTRE.

Thomas W (mx) wrote: The Family Tree is a movie that is such a formulaic crapfest it doesn't even deserve for me to take time out of my schedule to write-up this review of it as I already WASTED an hour and a half of my time trying to appreciate some aspect of it (Christina Hendricks is in it for all of 3 minutes in the first twelve and gone for the remainder). I couldn't find anything else here ... and I rarely say I "wasted" my time when talking about movies (I willingly watched the sequel to Garfield to review it for friends and family); but this IS time wasted. The movie takes so many swipes and swings at many hot-button topics (religion, sexuality, adultery and marriage) that it is all muddled and ridiculous. So much is thrown at this family of wretched individuals that the audience cannot even keep all of the stupid storylines straight -- none of it is reasonable or plausible. This might be one for those who want to "go back" to a nostalgic past of glory ... and this movie is everything that is wrong with that mindset.
