CBn is moving...

18 June 2017 - 10:05 AM

Ladies and gentlemen,


it's my great pleasure to announce that CBn will be moving shortly into a new set of forum architecture; new premises so to speak.


A number of reasons have lead us to the conclusion that this ship, after 16 years, now needs a new home port. Keeping the safety and integrity of the database here up to scratch has become ever more complex and the natural answer was to look for more modern accommodations. Which you will discover shortly. 


However, moving a vessel such as CBn - active since February 2001 - from one harbour to another isn't done in a day. Or a night either. We are currently still in a kind of advanced test mode; this means we are operative but want to handle the migration of members in phases and, in this early stage, by invitation only.   


Some of you already received invitations by The Admiral to the new place. Or will receive them during the next few weeks as we go along. This is solely an organisational thing and should be dealt with in relatively short time. 


During transition period the old forum will run parallel with the new one. Eventually though, we will switch it to read-only and use it as archive. Meaning all your posts and contributions will remain accessible here. The main page will not be affected by the move. 


Thank you for sailing with CBn...

New Timothy Dalton Guide by Margarida Araya

06 April 2017 - 05:19 AM

Dear Bond fans,

a few months ago I autopublished on Amazon a book about Timothy Dalton's career entitled "Timothy Dalton: A Complete Guide to His Film, Television, Stage & Voice Work" and I thought you could be interested  ;)







Very interesting, thanks for the heads-up.

Ladies and gentlemen, due to a technical problem CBn's forum was down over an unusually long period. Please excuse the inconvenience and any troubles that came with it.

Thank you for flying with CommanderBond.net.

RIP Carrie Fisher (1956 - 2016)

With great sadness we learn of another loss this year. Carrie Fisher, a Princess most of my generation would gladly have rescued, passed away today after her recent heart attack. This world has lost another light...

Waltz on, Blofeld

06 September 2016 - 11:47 AM

Just reading the new German bi-annual Zeit-Magazin Mann with an extensive Christoph Waltz interview as cover story. Naturally, his latest role in James Bond's life was also a topic.




Financially, SPECTRE has been a huge success. It had a box office of $ 880 million, only one other James Bond film earned more.


And yet, Waltz isn't satisfied - with his own performance, with the result. 'I cannot claim that I've really nailed Blofeld. Overall it held water, was okay. But it wasn't what I've been looking for. I was searching for more inspiration.'


He has been getting this vibe even before shooting started, but by then it was already too late.  


'An actor can only be really good when there are shared possibilities.'


He refuses to be any more specific about it, but it's clear what he means by that: apparently the chemistry between him and director Mendes didn't play out the way he would have wished for.


How does one survive a PR spectacle such as James Bond?


First he says 'I've survived worse' and then he adds 'There is a tendency to excessiveness. I understand you want invite as many guests as possible to a Premiere. But does it absolutely have to be the Royal Albert Hall? That doesn't really really help the whole cause. In the end it's a film, and it should remain a film. The next Premiere will probably be a national holiday; it almost was this time. I don't see what's so bad about the Odeon at Leicester Square for a premier cinema?'


 At the end of SPECTRE his Blofeld is still alive - is a sequel possible with Waltz?

'I don't know about that, nobody knows. It wasn't talked about, except in the press. Right now nobody even knows which studio will produce the next and if Daniel will return. All of that is filed under "carry on"'
