Skip to comments.The James Bond Chronicles: 'Tomorrow Never Dies'

Not as strong as GoldenEye, and with a villain that is too arch, "Tomorrow Never Dies" nonetheless boasts outstanding action scenes and a good script.

Great Pretitle sequence
Good theme song ruined by Sheryl Crow.
Soundtrack by Dave Arnold okay, not his best.
No Fleming elements in this movie. Fleming flipped in his grave when Bond started to follow around Wai Lin around in Vietnam The story is not that compelling.
Elliot Carver as Rupert Murdoch/Bill Gates. Meh. First Bond movie made after Cubby's death and it showed. Very little above the shoulders in this movie.
Bonf ping, Thank you GSP.fan
My JB rules:
#1. There is only ONE James Bond in the cinema and that is Sean Connery.
# 2 any story not pened by Ian Flemming is not a James Bond book or movie.
#3 the character of M.... Must never be a woman. Though Q may be a tall skinny python.
#4. Bonds issued handguns must be either a berretta .25 or a
Walter PPK in .32 or .380.... Though he obviously may use any weapon removed from an adversary.
I’ll post more rules as I think of them
“Tomorrow Never Dies”
it will the day after tomorrow.
I hated Judi Dench in her first appearance as M, but she has grown on me. I think she has done a very good job with the part.
The fight scene in the studio at the first of the movie was worth seeing the movie for, imo.
ANOTHER James Bond thread?!
I’m runnin’ out of Vodka here!
(3 measures of Gordon’s, One of Vodka, Half of (blonde)Lillet, shaken over ice and strained into a glass with a large, thin slice of lemon peel)
Sorry, but disagree. Judi Dench has done a great job with the part.
A Beretta .25 belongs in a lady’s handbag, not as the sidearm of the world’s greatest secret agent. Ian Fleming chose poorly on that front.
I would have thought by now Bond would be carrying something that handles the 5.7 x 28.
Elliot Carver as Rupert Murdoch/Bill Gates.
Nah take out Rupert and replace it with Ted Turner name of his station was Carver media group network CMGN, kinda like CNN..
Without a doubt. When the gun guys got a hold of Fleming he wrote it in as the reason Bond was nearly killed and corrected the situation with the PPK. It was all a well written part of some of the first few novels
BTW the small concealable piece is a necessity for a spook in a tux.
