In Topic: Ideal Bond Directors - POLL ADDED

So very much in existence.  Not only to be merged with the existing one, but to be renamed in anticipation of Bond 27 directors etc.

But in the case of the Eon company, it IS avoidable, and has been so since their beginning of time.

 

When they have something to say, they say it.

 

I am completely sure that fella up above who demands news irrespective of there being any, would soon enough find it impossible to stomach an apparent lack of the aforementioned (obvious) action.  All of which is to say, I am happy with the status quo of their PR machine.

I read the Movie News on imdb.com.  I flick past a lot of it but over all, I thought the Avatar sequels were already being filmed.

 

Today I learn that the first sequel has yet to actually commence filming, and that we are, today, just marginally closer to something commencing...

 

I am so tired of hearing the same damn thing.  This is what I mean...  Too much talk, too little (obvious) action.

Completely disagree.  Bond has been absent for long periods and when there is news with meaningful content, there is an audience.

 

What would be worse would be a flow of noise with zero content which, in time, would surely annoy in ways radio silence could only dream of.  For me, real news, not noise.

How does the existence of an orchestra play in the whole, as to just what is the main focal point of attention?  Does one still watch the film, or is attention drawn towards the orchestra?

 

Secondly, what with sound recording techniques for the modern movies, just how 'improved' can a live performance be over and above modern amps and today's speakers?
