    I saw a trailer for this latest Bond movie at the theater a few weeks ago. Several of the stunts looked crazy good. However, even with all the advances in special effects over the years, one of my favorite scenes from a Bond movie was when Bond ran across the back of several crocodiles in Live and Let Die. Decidedly low tech but very cool.

    Movies these days are visually appealing yes. The actors can do more then years ago but there is entirely too much CGI and blue screen for my tastes. I thoroughly enjoy watching older movies where action was real. Some of the stuff from the 40's is great.

    Here's a trailer from a movie you might enjoy, lol. I don't think Industrial Light & Magic has anything to worry about...

    Trailer from Invaders from Mars

    Opening scene from A View to a Kill. Including the song California Girls during the sequence was a nice touch. That type of humor would never have happened when Sean Connery was 007.

    Trailer for On Her Majesty's Secret Service - My favorite Bond movie, even though the first few I watched starred Roger Moore. IMO, this one features the best co-stars (Diana Rigg, Telly Savalas) in any Bond movie, as well as one of the franchise's best songs (We Have All the Time in the World sung by Louis Armstrong). Alas, OHMSS also features the worst ending of any Bond movie.

    ll you've done it again. Found another delight. I saw this in the theater but it wasn't 1953 which makes me wonder when it was. 1959 maybe. I understand this movie is lost forever but it's great to see the trailer is still around.

    Apparently Invaders from Mars (1953) is available on Amazon Prime (and, apparently, other internet sites). There is a link on IMDB to Amazon Prime. However, I didn't check that link.

    Read the Wiki and found the Brits made a remake adding scenes with some differences. Not certain which one is available. Have not yet found where it was unavailable.. Rumors & propaganda.

    Looks like the original uncut is still lost but some have hope TCM may have a copy. I guess I will have to get myself a copy and show it to my grandson.
