Recognition ...of team focus ....their development & indentification of youth outstanding.My new boss played under 16's in the Storm team and reckons hes every bit as hard as he looks - any instance of figjam in the players is smacked ouot of them. Its all about process and systems.
I’ve never watched all bond films in order - just seen scattered ones so doing that now. Just finished you only live twice and now up to the second bond - George Lazenby.Timothy Dalton was pretty damn good, very intense as James Bond.
The Living Daylights is a low key great movie
Thanks heaps for this mate - it's really helpful.Hey Roddy
Found these on YouTube
If you watch the second video from 50mins onward it will show you the ride from Yarraman Station to Carrum, or you could cross the rail bridge and ride along the Eastlink trail towards Ringwood.
There are heaps of videos of bike trails in Melbourne, so worth a look
Connery because he was the best actor and a great fit for the role and had everything going for him in terms of when his movies were made.
The Eastlink trail has heaps of branches. I ended up riding to The Basin on the weekend from the Heatherton Road section of Eastlink.Thanks heaps for this mate - it's really helpful.
I made it to Yarraman over the weekend and couldn't work this out on the maps so just cycled back along the Djerring Trail. I'll give this a go next time, might go to Carrum then catch a train back from somewhere.
I'm keen to go up the Eastlink and then find a trail that connects me back to Caulfield.
I had a look at this in reverse order and the Scotchmans Trail might need a bit of map assistance as it joins the roads at a few points, but it looks like a nice 50km-ish round trip.The Eastlink trail has heaps of branches. I ended up riding to The Basin on the weekend from the Heatherton Road section of Eastlink.
If you get to Jells Park along the Eastlink trail then you will be able to get onto the Scotchman's Creek trail and make your way back to Caulfield.
The hill that takes you up to the Scotchman's creek trail at Jells Park is a monster though. Coming down that hill at break neck speed is insanely fun, so maybe try the ride in reverse order.
Basically mine as well, though I also felt Dalton was a better Bond than Moore and Moore just had better movies since he had more of them than Daltons 2 and sh*t scripts.Connery because he was the best actor and a great fit for the role and had everything going for him in terms of when his movies were made.
I‘ve seen all the movies and I’d rate Daniel Craig as the next best, he has quite a bit of Jason Bourne thrown in but that’s what you get these days. Lazenby was pretty good in his one appearance, Roger Moore was just ok, he never really had the edge you need to play bond and I don’t rate the others at all.
Lazenby? I thought he was good but not as good as Connery. I’ve not seen the Roger Moore ones or the Dalton ones but Brosnan is ok I guess. You’re right that he is a bit dull.He just seemed cooler. Roger Moore was campy era Bond, Brosnan and Dalton were a bit dull and Daniel Craig looks like his face is made of concrete.

Connery though. His first “Bond. James Bond” in Dr No and then “that’s a smith and Wesson .45 and you’ve had your six” are iconic moments. And I can’t decide if thunderball or Goldfinger is the best one so far.
worth noting i was living in an apartment complex, wanted to get cable with another provider, couldn't because they had signed the apartment complex into a long term agreement. so we couldn't get the advantages of high-speed internet through time warner. this was a common occurrence.
Interesting to note that Roald Dahl wrote the script for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and You Only Live Twice.The first James Bond movie had been a real shoestring budget affair.
His first car , a Sunbeam Alpine ( true to the book, like Maxwell Smart's car but without the V8 engine ) didn't do to many stunts, since it was a hire car.
He drove a old Bentley in "From Russia with love ", also true to the book, despite the movie being set in a bit more modern times than the book.
I'm pretty sure when he got the Aston in Goldfinger, is was due to a publicity deal with the car company where, they got the car practically for free in exchange for featuring it.
The same filmmaker made "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" because it was written by the same Author and came with the package.
I’ve heard Roger Moore is regarded as the worst one.I've recently read quite a few of the Bond books and they gave me a different perspective of the Bond character. He seems to have more vulnerabilities in the books.
E.g. In the tarantula scene from Dr No, Bond holds his stomach the end of the ordeal. In the book it was a centerpede instead of a spider and he vomits violently after the ordeal, such was his fear.
Connery was my favourite Bond.
Roger Moore sucked IMHO
I liked him as Simon Templar in the Saint but never warmed to him as Bond. I prefer films made in the 60s rather than 70s, so maybe that is part of it.I’ve heard Roger Moore is regarded as the worst one.
The Godfather is great. Controversial, but I prefer the Godfather 2. Taxi Driver is a great 70s movie. Chinatown. The French Connection. Apocalypse Now. The Deer Hunter. Some memorable movies came out in the 70s.I liked him as Simon Templar in the Saint but never warmed to him as Bond. I prefer films made in the 60s rather than 70s, so maybe that is part of it.
Speaking of 1970s films, my favourite is The Godfather. It's almost a perfect film, except the fight scene between Sonny and Rizzi which is ordinary. It looks so fake but the rest of the movie is so good, I can ignore it.
