Anyone else having James Bond marathons this month?

Since the new movie is coming out, anyone here having their own marathons?

I started one on Saturday, one Bond movie a day. I should run out just in time for Die Another Day.

I've been considering it. Fall/Winter is always the time of year Bond movies were shown on TV...so why not keep the tradition alive with my DVD's?

Been watching all the films this year on dvd, like every 2 weeks or something, finished, but recently started again, finished Dr No, and From Russia with Love, next is Goldfinger.

Can't wait for Die Another Day, never waited so patiently for a Bond film before, 3 year gap is too long, Goldeneye, TMD, TWINE were 2 year gaps, so they flew, but 3 year gap is painful, which makes Die Another Day within 2 weeks so great!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I watched all of the Connery Bonds up until "You Only Live Twice" back in September. So I'll definitely catch the rest before the new one comes out.

What I do know, is that the new one just won't be the same without:



So, does "Casino Royale" and "Never Say Never Again" count? Seriously though, is anyone going to include them along with the "official" Bonds?

I really do miss 13 Days of 007 on TBS...damn ABC/Di$ney for grabbing the rights to most of them.

I'm done.

Actually the biggest was 15 Days of 007. They occasionally added a few days as the years went by, and it was 13 at one point. Here's the message from the last Cyber Bond game at tbssuperstation.com:

The 2000 Cyber Bond enhanced TV event has ended and we are no longer carrying the 15 Days of 007 Bond marathon. Thank you for making last year's event our most successful ever. See below for a list of winners.

Where did you get 31 days from?

I got a recent update on that "Casino Royal" DVD coming out (the 1954 telecast). Seems this DVD will have a scene thats omitted from the version on the current "Casino Royal" with Woody Allen.

Sadly, this DVD has been delayed....so much for adding this to my Bond Marathon

All the Brosnans are on DVD: "Goldeneye," "Tomorrow Never Dies," and "The World Is Not Enough."

I've been watching the Bonds in chronological order (including "Never Say Never Again" but not "Casino Royale") once a week over the past few months. Two more to go, then "Die Another Day." Perfectly timed.

I've heard that in honor of the series' 40th anniversary, the new film is going to have a spoken or visual reference to all 19 official Bond films. Watch for it!
