Casino Royale: Peter Sellers, Ursula Andress ...

[Trade]Unopened City of Angels DVD (+ a Stargate DVD)

Ok so I moved in with the bf shortly after I bought my copy of City of Angels, and so it was never opened. Photo here
There is also an opened Stargate DVD available (same photo).
I don't really consider myself a collector, so here's a small list of suggestions, but I'd also consider some others if you want to make any offers (Action, Spy movies, Sci Fi, etc.)

Thoughts on every James Bond film

So in April, I decided to watch every Bond film from "From Russia with Love" to "Spectre". I had already seen Dr. No for a english assignment last year and while I enjoyed the film didn't feel the need to rewatch it. So here are my thoughts:
Dr. No - A great start to the Bond franchise that is introduces a lot of the classic elements, including "Bond, James Bond", Girls and cold kills. The film is quite quaint by modern standards but is still fun to watch. I will say the second half of the opening is just plain odd though, why after the James Bidn theme am I hearing bongos?. I will say that I wish we saw more of Dr. No than we do in the actual film, as, but otherwise Jospeh Wiseman gives a great performance. Overall 7.5/10
From Russia with Love - Okay this one just got better as it went along. While the pre-title sequence isn't bad we don't actually get to bond for a bit of the film and it does drag a bit. I also love that in the second movie we're already trying to play with the fact that Bond loves to sleep with women. I also find it funny that Robert Shaw looks awfully similar to Daniel Craig. Even with that though Red Grant still delievrs a codl performance that leads to one of the best fight scenes in cinema Overall 8.5/10
Goldfinger - I love this one so much. From a great villain to the DB5 to the iconic imagery and the brilliant henchman in Oddjob. This film gets nearly everything right and I have very few problems with the film as a whole. My only qualm is the barn scene where it appears that Bond may have raped Pussy galore, but that really didn't hinder my enjoyment very much as all. Where my love for the films was truly cemented for the film was for this quote "Did you expect to me to Live?" "No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die".Also my favourite character is introduced in this film: Q. The way Desmond Lleweyn plays this character is perfect and I really did not want anyone to replace him. Goldfinger is almsot flawless 9/10
Thunderball - This is where the franchise really went downhill for me. What really annoys me about this film is the first half hour is a complete waste of time that we didn't need. We could have easily started just at scene where Bond is meeting with leaders of the world and M and it still wouldn't affect your understanding of the film. Even after that, so much of the film just feels like wasted potential. The only good part of the film are probably about half the girls, Sean Connery and the one Q scene. The Underwater scenes are just boring and I didn't care. Altough this film does have on e the best title sequences. This will seem harsh to some but honestly this film gets a 4/10
Casino Royale(1967) - Yes I made sure to watch "every" James Bond film (although that wasn't really worth it in the end). What the fuck happened in this film. Honeslty this film is just random scenes together stuck together with a plotline. I remeber David Niven playing some game with Ursula Andress( If I remember correctly). I remember Bond's daughter stuck in a mze like berlin in the cold war. I remember peter sellers going up against Le Chiffre. But the films comes together like a Sandwhich made of Jello and Glue. It's awful. But it's also hilarious to think about. Honestly the story behind the film is more interesting than the actual film. Oh and how lazy is that ending, my God. 3.5/10
You Only live Twice - Alright I knew going in to this some of the films would be dated but I thought that was going to eb about the attitudes towards Women. I did not expect Sean Connery to be badly put in makeup to make him "look Asian". Also the final "Blofeld" reveal is somewhat disappointing, not necessarily bad just somewhat disappointing considering how he was bulit up in From Russia with Love and Thunderball. Although I honeslty didn't have a problem with Connery's performance that much. While it's not great, it wasn't enough to have an impact on my feelings towards the films. Overall not bad. 7/10
On Her Majesty's Secret Service - Alright this one is hard for me. I didn't enjoy the film very much but it's clearly great. Why is it great? Well it gave me Captain America: Civil War which is a film I sometimes don't enjoy but know it is a great film regardless. I was probably just in the wrong mood for this film. As for Lazenby, he's not bad but I think he might have just needed a bit more direction on what to do. Although while it's a gutpunch I love the ending. I'll just give it a 7 now, but I might come back to this one.
Diamonds are Forever - This one is quite weird. From Blofeld to drag to having scenes set in Vegas to Connery weirdly looking too old depsite only being in his 40s. But it can also be a sort of fun weird as well. But then it's not great either. Also I blame this film for the stupid moon landing conspiracy theories. 6.5/10
Live and Let Die - This is a decent start to the Roger Moore Era. Moore feels like Bond but not like Connery which I think was a slight problem with Lazneby trying to be a little too much like Connery. Dr. Kananga is a good villian and Jane Seymour as Solitaire is one the best bond girls. Also Sherriff J.W Pepper is silly but helps us understand how the Roger Moore Era will feel. Overall 7.5/10
The Man with the Golden Gun - "THAT FUCKING SLIDE WHISTLE". Seriously though the slidew whistle over the car flip represents the whole film. Good Idea that were unfortunately done wrong due to horrid execution. However, this makes the film one of the best to enjoy ironically. Scaramnage and Nick Nack are probably the only things done well in the film. Just for ironic enjoyment I'm willing to give this film a 6/10
The Spy Who Loved Me - For the longest time this was my favourite Bond Film. It had my favourite Bond girl in Anya, One the best henchmen in Jaws, Moore at the top of his game, and one the best ending scenes battles in all of Bond. My only problem comes from Stromberg, who's just a bit one note. Overall 9.5/10
Moonraker - I had bad experience watching this one. I was expecting all of it to be set in Space but only the 3rd act actually is. This meant that during the first 2 acts I was just waiting for them to go to space and when they did, I wanted them back on Earth. I really didn't like the space scenes because the blasters reminded me too much of Star Wars. The film itself is probably the most over the top it's ever been and hell, looking back I realise while it was incredibly stupid it was fun seeing a double taking pigeon and the other nonsensical happenings in this film. Honeslty I'll give this a 6.5.
For Your Eyes Only - What happened in this one? This isn't like Casino Royale '67 where it's incredibly confusing but it's more just boring. I really don't remember much at all. I don't remember many of the stunts or any of the bond girls really. Hell, I have no idea who the villain actually was. The only thing I remember is the brilliant opening sequence. 4/10
Octopussy - This one's similar to FYEO for me only stupider. unfortunately though unlike Moonraker where it jump the shark fairly soon to get you ready for the sillier scenes later on, the clown scene at the end I was completely unprepared for looked and just came off as incredibly dumb. Also Octopussy could've been a great villain but no, it's someone else who I didn't care about. 3/10
Never Say Never Again - The first act is weird in that it can't decide if it wants to be classic Bond or a spoof like CR '67. The second act is classic Bond(although they play videogames at some point. What?). I don't remember the 3rd act at all and I got completely lost which really ruined the film for me. 4.5/10
A View To a Kill - This is like TMTWGG for me. The only real good parts are Mayday and Christopher Walken as Zorin. We really should've had Dalton by this point. In fact I think Dalton should've started with For Your Eyes Only. Moore I don't think gives a bad performance but he was clealry too old for the role by this point. As a film it's one of the sillier ones, but at least it wasn't too boring 5/10
The Living Daylights - What a breath of fresh air. It was nice to have a bond film I enjoyed again after some many I didn't like. I love the 3rd act with the both Bond hanging on for his life with the plane and the end fight (although it could give you a seizure if you're epileptic). Timothy Dalton is James Bond. All the other actors were playing a version of James Bond. Dalton is that character personified to a T. The Living Daylights gets a 7/10
Licence to Kill - This was very different. What is easily the darkest bond film (maybe except, Casino Royale '06) is also one of the better bond films. While I enjoyed TLD dalton's bond fits better in this sort of film. I love the plot is literally Bond on a revenge mission rather than just filling out M's orders. Also Q in more than just one scene, is bliss. I Love Q, not only for Desmons Lleweyn, but also because his warmth helps to say "Yes it's dark, but it's still Bond and we can still have fun with it". However the film does almost crumble under all of the different plotlines but unlike NSNA I was still able to get back into the film despite that. Also, It annoyed me that Felix survived the film. It would've been better and more believable if both Felix and his wife had died. LTK gets a 7.5/10
Goldeneye - I don't have a lot to say about this one. Just a great Bond film in it's own right with a great villain and some of the best Bond girls. Although I wasn't big on Brosnan at first though. To me he seemed too generic and didn't really have his own spin to Bond. But he grew on my over time. Besides Goldeneye is still a great film otherwise. 9/10
Tomorrow Never Dies - Again, not a lot to say about this one. Decent Bond flick, that while not as good as Goldeneye is still worth your time and worth checking out at least once. The best part of this film is the villain by far, being a version of Rupert Murdoch(hate that slimy bugger). 7/10
The World is Not Enough - Man I don't have a lot to say about the Brosnan films. I really don't know what to think of this film. The opening scene is great but otherwise I find the film to be another average Bond flick that is a little worse than TND. 6/10
Die Another Day - This one's similar to TMWTGG and AVTAK for me where's it's incrediby stupid but you can have a laugh at it. John Cleese is decent as Q but not as good as desmond lleyweyn. Unlike otehr silly bond films some of the stupid shit can be seen as downright offensive and taking the piss such as the parasailing on waves scene and the end villain literally being Robocop. But the film is somewhat saved by incredibly silly dialogue that is easy to laugh at. Overall 5/10
Casino Royale - First Act is good. The second act is one the best scenes in cinema I have ever seen. I was just invested in that Poker Scene as I was in the Portals scene in Avengers: Endgame if nor more so in the Poker scene. The torture scene is brutal but works perfectly. However once Mr White shows up the films kind of falls apart. This because you could easily assume that Mr White was CIA(Like I did) and just though that was that. While Mathis still had to be dealt with, (whihc QoS messes with for some reason) the film could've just ended with Bond and Vesper. But no we had to have this silly third act which feels like it was only there to kill Vesper. But since the first two acts are still really good and the third act doesn't ruin the movie I'm still willing to look a the film positively. Overall 8/10
Quantum of Solace - I saw this one fairly recently and I still don't remember what happened. I think Greene was the villain and Bond was on the run from MI6 but honeslty that's about it. I will say that in the first half however, Daniel Craig somehow managed to not be Bond and instead come off as top Gear host. The ending really ruins this film however. Well more the gunbarrel itslef. YOU MAKE WAIT THE ENTRIE MOVIE FOR THE GUNBARREL ONLY FOR IT TO THE BE THE WORST GUNBARREL EVER DONE" Ugh. 4.5/10
Skyfall - What a stroke of genius this film was after QoS. One the best Villians in Bond history,Daniel Craig on top of his game, some stunts that are a bit silly but still keep the realims in check and making M the central focus was brilliant . Also while Desmond Lleweyn Will always be my favourite, Ben Whishaw is a great Q. I know this film has some silly plot holes the film is so damn good you just learn to not care about them. I could gush on and on about this film, but this has gone long enough as it has. 10/10 Best Bond film
Spectre - So I'm listening to Bon Jovi's "You give Love a bad Name" and it has the lyric "You Promised me Heaven and gave me Hell". That sums up my feeling towards the films perfectly so I'll just leave at that. 3/10

I am not sure of this subs feelings of Casino Royale (67). However I had an idea of a follow-up/sequel with Hugh Laurie in the retired/David Niven roll of Bond entitled SMERSH.
While I know there is no way an unofficial Bond film will ever be made again. I was curious of everyone's thoughts as to whether they would be receptive of one.

My re-ranking of Bond films after quarantine binge watch. By actor, not as one big group

IMO it's an exercise in futility to try to rank all 26 (or 27 if you include the David Niven CR)
But it's not so hard to rank each Bond actor's films
Sean Connery
  1. Diamonds Are Forever (the hell with all of you)

I watched Casino Royale (1967)

Let's make a James Bond spoof with four different directors making four different stories and have them all patched together in the end. Throw in plenty of madcap silliness and some psychedelics for good measure. By the end of production, there were six directors on the project and Peter Sellers had quit in the middle of his segment.
David Niven plays the original James Bond, who had retired, but voices his dismay at the fellow who took over his name and 007 designation. SMERSH is targeting James Bond, so David Niven James Bond designates all agents as James Bond 007, including the women, so that SMERSH won't know who and where to attack. It's kind of odd that this proposal predates the movies recasting James Bond.
Peter Sellers acts very much like himself in his segment, randomly slipping into various characters and using ethnic accents for no particular reason. Orson Welles acts like himself, randomly performing magic tricks. These two clashed, with Welles insisting that he's filmed with Sellers as little as possible (there's only one or two shots where they're in the frame together), which prompted Sellers to quit. The climactic segment in the Casino Royale must have been insanity. I'm trying to imagine the director requesting a cavalry on horseback, some paratrooper Native Americans (a long way to go for a "Geronimo!" joke), a couple of irate seals and a chimpanzee in a tuxedo and toupee.
The Burt Bacharach soundtrack is fun and goofy to fit the vibe. In the middle of that, I think, "hey, that's Stewie Griffen's sexy party music".
edit: corrected Sellers for Sellars

May 15th, 2017: Decomprosed Interview

Tell us a little about yourself.
I usually say “Oh, I hate talking about myself” when prompted with this question, but I won’t do that, even though I kinda just did. Screw your rules, me. Kinda. Anyway, my name is Sade. I’ll be 27 in two weeks, which means I can finally die and join the 27 club. Just need to get famous real quick. I’m a nomad and an artist of various mediums who doesn’t seem to understand the concept of “heavy workload” or “public decency” or “positively contributing member of society”. I live on a bus that’s been converted into a mobile bookstore with my best friend, seven anoles, a dog, and a cat (among quite a few dead things), and though I don’t like talking about myself, I probably could for hours, so I’ll leave you with this: have you ever thought about what the inside of your face smells like?
When did you first become interested in horror?
From a very young age, I lived and breathed all things horror. My father introduced me to most of the things I love in life, and horror was no exception. I very fondly recall sitting on the couch with him and watching the ‘88 creature feature shlockfest Pumpkinhead. After that, I was obsessed. He would let me run amok in the video rental store (remember those?), and I would always beeline straight for the horrosci-fi section. This man had me watch the original Final Destination the day before I was supposed to take a flight to visit my grandparents. He let me watch The Wizard of Gore when I was ten! I never stood a chance.
What truly got me into horror as a genre, however, was reading. Libraries and bookstores were second homes to me, and I would spend hours in them after school and on weekends. My father was a pretty avid reader, so there were always good things to pick through. I still have my copies of the horrosuspense anthology 999 (edited by Al Sarrantonio) and Stephen King’s Everything’s Eventual that he gave me as a kid.
I love trash. I am a trash person, and I consume trash media greedily. Splatter, camp, b-movies, exploitation, grindhouse, and so on. Some of my personal favorites are Dead Alive/Braindead, The Driller Killer, Ms. 45, Slime City, and Evil Dead.
What's the most terrifying thing you've personally experienced?
I have an uncanny ability to put myself in extremely dangerous situations and places I have no business being party to. I’ve had a lot of paranormal experiences, and have also had some very close calls with very bad people related to the drug world. But I’m going to have to say that, as beautiful as it is and as much as I love it, there’s nothing more terrifying than nature. Its power and capability for severity have always astounded me.
At Hampton Beach, as a child of ten or so, I was swimming in the ocean. It was a bright day out, and fairly hot. The kind of bright that blinds you if you spend too much time looking at the sand. I’ve always been equally terrified and entranced by the ocean; the thought of a body of water so vast, so unknown, filled with creatures I’d only seen in movies or read about in books, and so much more than we could ever discover. It’s intoxicating. I was swimming not too far out from the shore when there was a huge swell, and I got caught in an undertow. My body felt as though it was being thrown by something enormous and powerful, like I’d been snagged by some giant underwater beast and was being dragged to the depths. I was pulled out, rolling what looked like just under the surface, still able to see through the water into the sunlight piercing the surface, and I could feel myself drowning. It happened so quickly, so harshly, and in those moments, I thought I was going to die.
How did you initially discover NoSleep? What prompted you to begin writing for it?
I’ve been on Reddit for a very long time, far longer than I’d like to admit. I’ve cycled through a bunch of different usernames and circles. I’d peripherally known of NoSleep, but never really checked it out. In June of 2016, I stumbled across the sub, lurked for a while reading as much as I could, and fell in love with the atmosphere and general direction the community had. I created a new account under the name decomprosed and, sitting in the corner of the bar I was working in at the time, wrote the story Junk Food on my phone. It wasn’t very good and was terribly cliche, but it reignited something within me that I’d lost a long time ago. I’ve been writing since the age of six (boy, lemme tell you how much I worried my teachers), but during a long abusive relationship in which I was constantly told I was terrible and shouldn’t show anyone my work, I stopped. In discovering NoSleep, I rediscovered my passion for writing.
What NoSleep stories and/or authors have had the strongest impact on you?
Like many others, when I first joined up, I read the Top - All stories. Additionally, unlike a lot of people as far as I’d seen, I used to camp out in the New tab fairly often, so I got a chance to see things before they’d had any impact on the community (if at all). Some of my favorites of all time have been Real hunger can’t be fed. I know that now, Pac Man Fever, Room 733, the first half of the Free Petz to Good Home series, Eden Musee, What Makes Us Human, the Record Keeper series, My dog was lost for three days. What came back wasn't my dog, and The Devil’s Toybox.
There are a ton more I’m missing from this list, but I used to read a lot of the sub. Nowadays, not so much. As for specific authors, I just wanna throw a shoutout to grindhorse for being another purveyor of the absurd and surreal and iia for showing me very early on that you can be absolutely fucking disgusting––yet still beautiful––and be well-received. u/sleepyhollow_101 has my soul locked in a sigil-scrawled box somewhere in her closet and occasionally takes it out to poke with a stick. On a similar note, no one’s writing on NoSleep (and pretty much in general) entrances me more than cold__cocoon’s does. Their ability to craft a world that feels so unendingly, richly organic and birth characters that feel like people I’ve met in reality and in dreams is astounding.
What are some of your biggest influences in media? Have any stories, on NoSleep or otherwise, or any books, films, or music ever had an impact on your writing?
That’s a pretty massive question, to be honest. Can I just be a dick and answer this with “yes” and move on? People like to say that they don’t take influence from the media they consume, but I think that’s pretty absurd; impossible, even. We’re constantly changing our outlooks on things based on what we take in. I’m a voracious reader––always have been. I hungrily consume heavily visceral and graphic films. I’ve always looked to the vastest extremes in media and art for what I always hope can be a transcendental experience. To be quite honest, though, I take more from my personal experiences in the world than I do from my choice of entertainment.
Some of my personal artistic mentors have always been John Waters, Edward Gorey, Diamanda Galas, William S. Burroughs, Aleister Crowley, Sheila Legge, Egon Schiele, Clive Barker, David Cronenberg, Lydia Lunch, Max Ernst, Sylvia Plath, and Junji Ito. And so many more.
But what inspires me the most?
In a word: Trash. I love traaaash. Filthy guttery punky garbage dumpster trash. Trash cinema, trash food, trash people. Trash everything. I live by the moral code of John Waters. Filth is life, and life prospers best in conditions that are filthy.
Other than writing, what are some of your hobbies? What other creative mediums do you enjoy?
As I said earlier, I’m an artist of quite a few mediums and I don’t have hobbies, I have absolute compulsive obsessions. Here’s a list. Motherfuckers love lists. Dancing, painting, taking apart and fixing vintage electronic systems (VCRs, cassette decks, 8track players, etc.), surrealist art, kicking boulders, occultism, dead places/urban exploration, 80s goth culture, oddities, body modification, the paranormal. I don’t know. What do people like? Am I people?
Aside from writing, I also paint, draw/illustrate, dance, make music, draw, and scream a lot. Screaming is an art, you know. I like to do voice acting.
I used to love drawing, but ended up thinking I was terrible at it. About a month ago, I tried my hand at it again and realized I was actually pretty decent, and fell back in love with the medium. I started up an instagram and have been drawing every single day.
Likewise, I sat down for the first time in years and tried making music again, and found I was able to commit to the sound I wanted like never before. Taking my project name from the iia story Soft Teeth, I began scraping together some sounds and have been working heavily on a yet-to-be-titled album. You can hear some of the demos on Soundcloud, and I’ll be releasing it as a pay-what-you-want download on Bandcamp in the coming weeks.
Besides being a musician in that I play instruments, I take more to the side of sound design. With producing, I aim to unsettle as much as I can. There are things you can do with sounds that one could never achieve with words or images, and I’m fascinated by the aspect of tweaking a two second clip of noise into something of tangible auditory beauty or disgust.
In the future, I plan to produce most of my work through various platforms, utilizing a combination of sights, sounds, and words to tell stories on different levels. I’m also about to launch a multimedia press named, which will allow me to have complete control over the final product.
You're the creator of /TheDirty31, a subreddit where users challenge themselves by writing and posting one new story daily in each month containing 31 days. How did you come up with the concept for D31? Are there any stories or moments from the sub's history so far that were particularly memorable for you?
I’ve always loved torturing myself. I hate deadlines and structure for the most part, but I’m also a massive masochist. I was writing pretty much every single day, but I thought, “How can I make this worse?” I decided on writing and posting a new story for every day in October of 2016 (much like the art challenge Inktober).
But! aside from being a masochist, I’m also a huge sadist. I thought to myself, “How can I suck others into this; force friends and strangers to share the pain?” A user named thequietestwhisper requested a way to keep track of the stories I was posting each day. These two things combined into the twisted beast of The Dirty 31, and it just grew from there.
It’s hard to pick out a specific story from amongst the hundreds, but I’d have to say the general world-weary feelings of dread and support that the group as a whole held during that initial run were pretty spectacular. It was much like war (in that we were all stranded on foreign soil, eating our own toes, and no one truly won). valkeezy has been doing a phenomenal job holding the stitches together since I haven’t had any time to dedicate to it, and the recent addition of distantoranges to the mod team was a top notch choice.
You've mentioned that you plan to release your series, Drift, as an ebook. Are you able to share any info on the status of that?
Unfortunately, the progress of publishing Drift kind of fell to the wayside, as things do. As mentioned, I’ll be starting an independent press soon, and Drift will be put out both physically and electronically through there. I’ll be setting up a mailing list for my projects eventually, and all further news will be published on my personal website.
When writing Drift, you chose to use an alt account, establishing a background for the protagonist by posting in drug related subreddits prior to sharing the story to NoSleep. How did using an alt help enhance immersion for the series?
Writing and publishing the series was an absolute blast. I wanted to create something that was unique and immersive, but didn’t have the time to commit to anything like setting up a phone number or a website, so I went with something I knew a little too well; drug culture. I created the account LivFreeAndDie and immersed myself in the various drug-related subreddits. People were receptive. I created a backstory through comments and posts, slowly and organically manufacturing and bringing up connections to people and places I had conceived for the series. Then, at a critical point, after I’d mentioned the decline of my “brother’s” health and the search for this made-up drug, I launched the story. I wrote all four parts (roughly 20,000 words) as I posted them, and the reception was fantastic. The first part remains, to this day, my highest upvoted NoSleep post. Users would continually comment about having checked my post history and finding connections to the elements of the story at hand, and I think it definitely kicked things up a notch.
The whole immersion aspect of NoSleep is something I have a thorough love-hate relationship with, but I more than enjoyed it for Drift.
You recently made the decision to no longer post your work online, instead opting to solely contribute to print based mediums. What prompted that change?
Spending too much time posting on NoSleep, in my opinion, was starting to dumb down my writing. I don’t mean this as a slight to my fellow authors, nor to the community in general. The rules and regulations, the inability to break the world; I was beginning to see it shape my writing. What had once rebirthed my love for the craft was beginning to become all that I wrote for, and I resented it. After a lengthy thought process and a few conversations with my friend, I came to the conclusion that I needed to break away from the sub and try something new, or I was probably going to stop writing altogether. I picked up my typewriter for the first time in forever and banged out the first draft of the first story I’d felt truly happy with in a while, entitled FIRST CONTACT. From that point, I decided to write as many of my first drafts as I could on the typewriter (I named her Stoya), and it’s brought me a lot of fresh perspectives I don’t think I would’ve otherwise found.
To clarify, I will still be submitting writing to online publications, but I likely won’t be posting work on Reddit or Tumblr anymore. I may still post the sequel to Mourning Wood, the story which made me a household name (households that need to be torn down, obviously), since I feel like I owe that to this fucked up little family.
Along with brokenlotus you co-own and operate The Road Virus, a mobile bookstore specializing in horror, sci-fi, and fringe literature. Can you tell us a little about the origin of TRV, and your future plans for it?
My best friend Em and I discovered a mutual love of books, bookstores, and libraries within one another. It’d been a dream of both of ours to own a bookstore since we were kids. Living in San Francisco at the time, this would have been completely impossible with rent prices and competition. So, we did the next best (and totally sane) thing and bought a bus that had once serviced the Perry County (Indiana) Public Library as a bookmobile. With Em’s past as a librarian, and my being an author, forever nomad, and always having dreamt of being a long haul trucker, it was perfect. Ridiculous, but perfect.
We’re sitting in Florida right now finishing renovations with the help of a longtime NoSleeper, Cody (throwawatsalesman), about to officially embark out onto the road full time, and we’re beyond excited for the weirdness that lies ahead.
We plan to travel the US for the next two years, at least. We converted the front half of the bus into a bookstore and the back half into an RV. A brick and mortar is definitely on our minds for the future, but in the meantime, we’re looking to bring fringe literature to all of the desolate parts of the country (and hopefully beyond).
You can read more about the bus on our website and across social media by following @roadvirusbus.
Much of your writing features lgbt characters, and you've stated previously that queer horror has a noticeable lack of representation on NoSleep. Why do you feel that is?
As an openly queer person myself, I write what I want to see. And what I want to see is representation. A lot of the blowhards who seem to have a problem with the concept of LGBT+ people being, y’know, people, tend to come up with the brutish argument of, “Oh, this just seems forced” at the inclusion of any typically “othered” character makeups.
The following is a list of actual comments I’ve received:
“Wait so are you a guy or not - Edit: yep Carl is a dudes name"
"I feel sorry for you. But I can't understand whether you are a man or a woman? You say you have a husband named Ed now, but the toothless man said "boys will be boys" to you and your brother."
"so... you're a girl, but you said you had a girlfriend, that makes no sense"
"the narrator being gay took me out of the story"
"This isn't how a gay guy would act"
"You made that character gay just to be different"
The unabashed ignorance and immunity to reality that some people on NoSleep seem to hold and promote is beyond me. But I get it. You know what you know, right? Well, if that’s what you know, then I think that the shit you know needs to change. Drastically. Queer people, gay people, trans people; they exist. It’s not a fad or a passing flame. There are literally dozens of us!
Given that most published authors are straight white men––at least those lauded by pop media––the world of literature would be a very fucking boring place if people only wrote what they were. But there is a fine line to walk; that of representing but not exploiting or making a cheap gimmick or stereotype of (and I say this as a person who loves and appreciates garbage exploitation films). An author I highly respect and love, Harlan Ellison, does this impeccably. The easiest way to write a character who’s based on something you don’t know or have never experienced is to do research and write them first as a person, and then as the model you’re trying to represent.
Are there any topics you feel are too controversial for you, or that you prefer not to mention in your writing?
No, not really. At least I haven’t come across one. My writing has touched on most of the things people mention in these answers: abuse, rape, racism, child death. I find therapy in the process of creating, and I’ve dealt with a lot of the things I write about first or secondhand. It’s a fluid sense of catharsis, and one I hold dear.
Do you have any favorite reader reactions to your writing?
Among the gamut of variations of “what the fuck” (“what the shitting christ is wrong with you” was a good one), I would have to say the entirety of the thread of my story Mourning Wood was my favorite. The plant/gardening puns were many and egregious. Besides shitting themselves over how “fucked up” a scene was, people have also come to me and told me that some of my stories were the most beautiful and sad things they’ve ever read, and that’s something I cherish.
What stories or projects of yours are you most proud of?
For writing, I would have to say the Red Wings stories are my favorites. Writing in her voice has been my favorite word-based experience thus far. I’m going to be turning them into a full length novel at some point; I’d love to see it in graphic novel form. I also love From the Mouths of Babes, which was a /ShortScaryStories post. I love doing short, punchy, biting surreal pieces. It’s where I’m most comfortable. Utilizing an amalgamation of surreal, visceral descriptions with achingly real characters and vast worlds is always my goal.
For visual art, two pieces come to mind. This abstract self-portrait and this portrait of a witch and her feline familiar. I only started drawing about a month ago, but I’m quickly developing a stark lowbrow style, and I’m enjoying myself.
And in general, The Road Virus. My friend and I bought a goddamn bus and are traveling the country selling books. Dream come true.
What advice would you offer new contributors to NoSleep?
Don’t forget who you are, and what you want to write. NoSleep can be so, so many things. It can be an inspiration, a launching pad, an endless pool from which to derive meaning in your words, words that might’ve otherwise never seen the light of dark; but it can also be harrowing and damning, making you question yourself, second-guess your stories, constantly be seeking validation from your peers and online readers, some of which like to spit acerbic haunts from behind a projected keyboard shield. You’re better than you think you are, so stop worrying about what everyone else wants, or thinks, or whatever. Write for the sake of writing, post for the sake of feedback, do whatever you feel the need to do in order to make your writing work for you. But don’t let NoSleep become the concrete formula for your process. Write every day. Engage in the OOC sometimes. Join the IRC if you’re feeling up to chatting. And for the love of hell, read a fucking book. I’m aware that some people “just don’t like to read”, but you cannot improve as a writer unless you read. Also, it’s just fun. Learning is amazing. Channeling yourself into other worlds you’d otherwise never see is king. Live deliciously, or live not at all.
What are your short-term and long-term writing goals?
I would like to be paid large sums of money and/or gold bars for shitting out a listicle on Thought Catalog every other full moon. That, or at least find sustainability in my writing. I want to be read. I want my physical books to be in physical hands and for people to lick their physical thumbs and turn their physical pages (jk actually don’t do that it squicks me out). I want to write for magazines, to have articles published. I’d like to reinvent myself as a new journalist (the movement, not the freshness) and put myself in the rough to gain access to interesting stories from immense worlds. I’d like to make my website a frequently-used platform for blogging my thoughts and feelings (what are those again?). I want to show more people that writing can be bizarre and surreal without being meaningless.
I want a lot of things, and I’m slowly picking up the tools to perform them every single day.
Community Questions:
From tanjasimone: Which is your favourite horror erotica duo with the initials JE and when are they releasing their next story?
Jerk Ember? No… Jasmine Explosion? Nah… Jewish Emissary? Fuck… Uh… oh right JIZZ ENSEMBLE. Hot DOG. I don’t know, Tanja, WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO WRITE THEIR FIRST STORY???? This is as much your fault as it is mine. I suggest a mutual paddling. With barbed wire wrapped around those rubber screaming duck toys. Shit, am I writing our first story at this very moment????
From iia: Frasier mad lib? Poppy (verb, -ed) the (adjective) (noun) of Niles while Maris watched, (adverb) (verb, -ing).
Poppy scraped the faithful mons pubis of Niles while Maris watched, hopelessly prostrating.
From taos777: How often do touch your plant?
I don’t know, Greg, how often do you touch your plants? That’s the REAL question here. You wanna know why? Because I’ve got a lot of filthy soil between my fingers, and it ain’t homegrown, if you know what I’m saying. I’ve got a green thumb, buddy, but your plants know what else is even greener.
From Zchxz: Which superpower would you choose and why? Hero or villain? And of course, what would your name be?
Definitely telekinesis, because it opens the door––without touching it––for so many other possibilities. With practice, bending other things in the world to one’s will seems eventually plausible. Flight, pyrokinesis, being impervious, in a sense, to attack; all of this should be possible through movement via the mind. And the concept of unlocking one’s brain’s potential in such a vast, unending way feeds into a lot of speculation on the possible applications of metaphysical abstraction through extrasensory manipulation. I’d most likely be an antihero. Fuck that heroism and valiance shtick. I’m a bad seed with good intentions. I’d rip evildoers in half and strike a match for my cigarette off of their twisted corpses, all with my mind. All while saying sassy, semi-nonsensical shit that makes them go, “I’m getting bested by a dude who just made a near-incomprehensible and terribly punned dick joke??? Really???!!” right before their eyes explode. Nice.
My name would be “The Raging Stamen”, and I would carry a gun lovingly referred to as my “Lil Pistil”.
From kneeod: Have you introduced Fulci to Marge? Also, Who's your favorite James Bond?
I prefer to keep business and pleasure separate, thanks. I can’t believe you stole the James Bond question from Mikey. You know it’s all he has…
David Niven was pretty wonderful in the ‘67 spoof version of Casino Royale. In general, I think Brosnan’s Bond had too much self-aggrandizing swagger. He was always just a little too… I don’t know, primped and proper, for me. I like my bond rougher, dirtier. The other guy… uh… Shawn Canary? Yeah, the Australian. Now he was a man. Yee-haw. I’ll be honest, and I welcome the crucifixion, but really loved Daniel Craig’s version. He fulfilled a lot of the key points of what made Bond for me; self-assured, rugged, brutal when necessary. But simultaneously sensitive in a way that wasn’t cheesy or played out. He pulled it off in a way that really felt right for the new generation, a more action-packed and fast paced blood-pumper.
From AsForClass: What other adventures have you had that you would consider comparable to your amazing bus adventures?
I feel like I’ve lived ten different timelines in my almost 27 years, and I don’t say that lightly. I’ve done a lot, seen a lot, experienced a lot. I leave this to my recent trip to Tokyo with brokenlotus. We lived rough, travelled light, and experienced a hell of a lot. Living in another country like you’re not a tourist is, in my opinion, one of the only right ways to truly travel.
From MikeyKnutson: When are we going to tell them about the engagement? Stop hiding me!
Respond to my carrier pigeons about the boils that’ve started popping up all over my feet and maybe then we’ll talk.
From Blueballs69_: Can I touch you the way you touch my heart?
I don’t care how many attempts the FBI makes, I’m not admitting to any of those fraudulent ER surgeon open-heart surgery murders.
From iwantabear: what is your favorite kind of candy? how many cows have you shamed?
Fuck, there are at least two kinds of candy. How do you expect me to make decisions like this? Sour Patch Watermelons are bomb. I love a good Snickers. Some may call me a pervert, but I fucking love me some marmite/vegemite. That counts as candy––unless you’re a terrorist or something. All sorts of Japanese candies I can’t remember the names of (one of them was possibly a scorpion dick; I don’t know, things got weird). Tamarind chewy things of all kind.
Unlike SOME people (not naming names, but definitely naming bears), I have NEVER shamed a cow. I’ve pet a few. They are so velvety. I have secret knowledge that brokenlotus once pissed on a cow. She was drunk, she thought it was an oddly warm/soft wall. These things happen.
From decomprosed: Why are you such a nasty, unrelenting bitch?
I learned it by watching you! I LEARNED IT BY WATCHING YOU!!!
Still eager to devour more decomprosed?
Make sure to check out The Road Virus website, sign up for their newsletter to see where they're headed next, buy some swag help, do people still say swag? and follow their adventures @roadvirusbus on Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat!
Didn't get a chance to ask Decomprosed your question?
Chill your roll, Bob Dole! He'll be doing a LIVE AMA in the unofficial OOC chat Thursday, May 18th from 5-7 pm EST! To ensure all questions are asked and answered in an orderly fashion, inquiries will be submitted by entering the IRC and private messaging them to cmd102. All appropriate questions will be asked if time permits.
NoSleepInterviews would like to say a huge thank you to that groovy garden ghoul, decomprosed, for taking the time to talk to us! You're super spooky, Mr. Hobo, and we can't wait to see you continue to shatter the stratosphere in every media realm possible!
We'll see you back here in two weeks when we speak with 007's biggest ho himself, the magnificent MikeyKnutson! We'll be taking questions for him in the OOC next week. Until then, why don't you let your eyes Pierce his Brosnan?

Aktor Pemeran James Bond - Part 1

Jika Anda bertanya kepada seseorang siapa aktor pertama yang bermain James Bond, mereka mungkin akan menjawab Sean Connery. Demikian pula, jika Anda bertanya berapa banyak aktor yang memainkan peran tersebut, kebanyakan orang akan mengatakan 5 atau 6. Anda mungkin terkejut mengetahui bahwa jawaban di atas salah. Di bawah ini, kami memberikan Anda sejarah lengkap dari semua aktor yang telah memainkan James Bond, tidak hanya dalam seri resmi tetapi juga dalam film tidak resmi, serial TV, dan acara radio.

​Barry Nelson 1954
​Pada awal 1954, Ian Fleming dibayar $ 1000 untuk hak siar televisi untuk Casino Royale. Novel ini diadaptasi menjadi satu jam khusus TV dan disiarkan di CBS pada 21 Oktober 1954 sebagai episode Climax! Teater Misteri.

Itu adalah episode hitam dan putih anggaran rendah yang diadaptasi oleh Charles Bennett, yang menulis skenario untuk sebagian besar film Alfred Hitchcock di tahun 1930-an Ia membintangi Peter Lorre sebagai Le Chiffre, Linda Christian sebagai Valerie Mathis, Michael Pate sebagai Clarence Leiter, dan aktor Amerika Barry Nelson sebagai James Bond pertama.

Barry memainkan James Bond dengan sangat santai, dan meskipun ada beberapa adegan perkelahian dan penyiksaan yang menggelikan, episode tersebut merupakan tayangan yang menarik dan menyenangkan dari Casino Royale. Peter Lorre khususnya adalah tambahan yang kuat untuk para pemain. Episode ini muncul sebagai fitur khusus pada DVD untuk film Casino Royale (1967).

​Bob Holness 1956
Pada tahun 1956, Bob Holness memberikan suara untuk James Bond dalam adaptasi radio Afrika Selatan dari novel Moonruner karya Ian Fleming. Dia kemudian akan menjadi aktor dan pembawa acara permainan untuk Take a Letter and Blockbusters.

Spesial Moonraker diatur oleh Durban Repertory Theatre. Bob mengatakan bahwa siaran langsung, dan dengan demikian, tidak ada rekaman yang diketahui. Dipercaya bahwa para pemain lokal dari Durban menyuarakan peran-peran lain, dan bahwa produksi berada di bawah sembilan puluh menit.

Bob Simmons 1962
Film EON Productions James Bond yang pertama, Dr. No, dirilis pada tahun 1962. Ini dibuka dengan urutan laras senapan yang akan menjadi merek dagang seri ini. James Bond, diperankan oleh stuntman Bob Simmons, berjalan di sepanjang latar belakang putih, yang ditunjukkan melalui pandangan laras senapan milik orang asing. Sadar bahwa dia sedang diawasi, Bond dengan cepat berbalik dan menembak si pembunuh. Darah menetes ke layar laras senapan membubung dan membuka untuk mengungkapkan judul utama.

Bob Simmons bisa dibilang disebut sebagai aktor resmi James Bond pertama, dan ia sebenarnya orang pertama yang memerankan 007 dalam film Bond yang dirilis bioskop. Adegan Bob kembali digunakan sampai Goldfinger, sebelum di-reshot dengan Sean Connery.

Sean Connery 1962-1967
Pada tahun 1962, produser Albert R. Broccoli dan Harry Saltzman membawa James Bond ke layar perak di Dr. No, berdasarkan novel Ian Fleming 1958. Dengan gaya unik Sean Connery, lokasi eksotis, dan pemeran pendukung yang spektakuler, Dr. No menjadi sukses instan.

Sean Connery melanjutkan untuk bermain James Bond empat kali di From Russia with Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball dan You Only Live Twice, sebelum pensiun sementara dari peran tersebut.

Roger Moore 1964
Pada tahun 1964, antara bermain Simon Templar di The Saint, Roger Moore membintangi sebagai James Bond dalam sebuah episode dari sketsa komedi pertunjukan Mainly Millicent.

Dalam sketsa 7 menit, James Bond sedang berlibur dan pergi untuk makan siang, hanya untuk bertemu mata-mata Rusia Sonia Sekova. Sonia juga sedang berlibur, dan kedua mata-mata menduga bahwa yang lain memata-matai mereka, menghasilkan beberapa situasi lucu. Obligasi menemukan pelayan mengenakan wig dan memukulnya di atas balkon, dan dua melemparkan beberapa minuman di atas bahu mereka, mencurigai pil sianida. Mereka berdua dipanggil kembali ke kasus dan mengakhiri episode dengan ciuman.

David Niven 1967
​Pada pertengahan 1960-an, produser Amerika Charles K. Feldman memperoleh hak film untuk Casino Royale. Setelah upaya yang gagal untuk membuatnya sebagai bagian dari seri resmi, ia memutuskan untuk mengubahnya menjadi spoof James Bond sebagai gantinya.

Film ini dibuka dengan David Niven bermain sebagai pensiunan 007. M memintanya untuk kembali kepada mereka, dan ketika Bond menolak, rumahnya segera diledakkan! M terbunuh dalam ledakan dan Bond mengambil alih posisinya.

Dia memutuskan untuk mengganti nama semua agen ke James Bond untuk membingungkan musuh. Hal ini menghasilkan David Niven, Terence Cooper, Woody Allen, Joanna Pettet, Daliah Lavi, Peter Sellers dan Ursula Andress semuanya bermain James Bond!

Bond Movies Of The Week: "Unofficial Bond movies"

James Bond is the highest grossing franchise of all time.
It is a franchise that has following throughout the entire world.
The novels by Ian Fleming, became a global phenomenon. The franchise about 007 inspired many young authors to start writing books, to dream that one day they will act in a Bond movie, even to spoof the world's most famous agent. Throughout the 50 years of Bond we've seen many parodies of the Bond movies, and many movies that were inspired by the majesty's agent.
But 3 movies will always be remembered as the movies that are the "bastard child" of the franchise. Bond movies that are not actually Bond movies. Bond movies that did not had the support by MGM, and movies that are really controversial. (while we are at the subject of controversy I would like to mention that throughout the 50years of Bond as we know it, MGM had many issues with the rights of Bond, and there were couple of Bond movies that were never made, but these 3 actually made it).
It all starts in 1954 with the first ecranisation of Fleming's first novel about 007. Casino Royale starring Barry Nelson Jimmy/James Bond.
If you haven't seen this episode/movie than you can check it out on YouTube by simply clicking at this link.
The Daniel Craig and Nelson were not the only actors to portray Bond in a Bond movie called "Casino Royale". In 1967 a parody/comedy version of Fleming's novel even gets an Oscar nomination for the movie named "Casino Royale" and it has Peter Sellers, Ursula Anders, David Niven, Dalliah Lavi, Terence Cooper, and even Woody Allen playing the role of Mr. Bond. I know that this sounds crazy to you but in the movie it makes sense, so you should check that one out if you want to see the "official" James Bond parody.
The most famous "unofficial" (or non-MGM) Bond movie is Never Say Never Again, and it has the original James Bond, Sean Connery in the role that brought him fame- Agent 007. Unlike the previous 2 movies this is more of an actual James Bond movie than the both versions of Casino Royale.
This will be a special week for BMOTW series cause instead of one you get to rate 4 (!!) Bond movies.
In the comment section bellow leave your ratings for SkyFall, Casino Royale (1954), Casino Royale (1967), and Never Say Never Again.
You can also write your review and your thoughts about the 3 Bond movies of the week.
If you haven't seen the 3 "unofficial" Bond movies you can see Casino Royale (1954): here.
And you can purchase video/BluRay/DVD of Casino Royale (1967):
here, here, and here
For Never Say Never Again just click here, here, or here.
And now it's time to see how did you rate Quantum Of Solace last week:
# Rating Name of Movie
1. 9.5 Casino Royale (2006)
2. 9.2 GoldFinger
3. 8.7 GoldenEye
4. 8.6 Licence To Kill
5. 8.4 The Living Daylights
6. 8.2 From Russia With Love
7. 8.2 The Spy Who Loved Me
8. 8.2 Dr.No
9. 8.0 For Your Eyes Only
10. 7.8 ThunderBall
11. 7.6 On Her Majesty's Secret Service
12. 7.3 You Only Live Twice
13. 7.2 Live And Let Die
14. 6.2 Quantum Of Solace
15. 6.2 The Man With The Golden Gun
16. 5.6 The World Is Not Enough
17. 5.6 A View To A Kill
18. 5.6 Tomorrow Never Dies
19. 5.1 MoonRaker
20. 4.6 Octopussy
21. 4.2 Diamonds Are Forever
22. 2.3 Die Another Day
Kind of surprisingly but Quantum Of Solace with a score of 6,2 gets the (un)lucky 13th spot in the list.
Do you think that any of the last 4 movies in the series can make major stir ups in the list ? Are the "unofficial" Bond movies the worst? Is the newest Bond the best? Follow our threads to find out.
Note: If most of you haven't seen the 3 movies mentioned in the thread, and think that it will take longer than a week (for any reason) to see all 3 movies, we will have another BMOTW next week, if not next week we will have our grand BMOTW finale where we will see the final results of this series.
I hope that you are enjoying this series, and as always whatever you are doing stay safe and Bond on.

rt, james bond rt

Respect MI6 Agent 007, James Bond!

“Three men were found dead on the Orient Express train at Trieste. One of them was Grant. What have you got to say about that, Number Five?”

“It was Klebb's choice. Her people failed.”

“It was your plan they followed implicitly.”

“Impossible. It was perfect.”

“Except for one thing: they were dealing with Bond.”

Featuring a loose cannon MI6 operative with the skills, gadgets, and good looks to charm, deceive, and fight his way past megalomaniacal supervillains hell-bent on world domination, Ian Fleming’s James Bond character has transformed over the years from an espionage flight of fancy into a legend of storytelling and an institution of cinema, with 24 films to date produced by Eon Productions, beginning with the legendary Albert Broccoli and Harry Saltzman.
James Bond isn’t just a character, he’s his own archetype- the suave, seductive but deadly secret agent, every bit as capable of effortlessly navigating the world’s high-class elite as he is single-handedly storming a military compound. His gadgets, his weapons, his suits, his cars, his opening themes, his leading actors, his main antagonists, his women, everything the James Bond franchise has created over fifty years has transformed the series and main character into one of the most beloved fictional characters of the United Kingdom and a juggernaut of worldwide entertainment.
For this RT, we’ll be focusing on the films only, and separating them by actor to allow for varied prompts or an overall composite approach. This RT will be updated when and if new Bond films become legally available for purchase.
Note: This RT does not include feats for the 1967 version of Casino Royale starring David Niven or the 1983 remake of Thunderball titled Never Say Never Again starring Sean Connery, as both films are non-canon.

(New Releases) Week of August 7th - The Lorax, Marly, Iron Sky, Bound, Grimm (S1)

Region 1 this week (7th August) new release list
In region 1 the best selling disc this week is Dr. Seuss' The Lorax. There's a complete combo pack available with 3D/BD/DVD/Digtal/UV. Or there's a BD/DVD/Digital/UV version and of course a basic DVD.
Also if you want more from Dr Seuss there's also the 2012 1971 animated version of Cat in the Hat out this week on BD/DVD or DVD.
Marly a documentary from Kevin Macdonald is also out this week. It's available on Blu-ray or DVD. I don't actually know a lot about the life of Bob Marley and considering how much I enjoyed Macdonald's Life In A day I think I should check this out.
New to Blu-ray and re-released on DVD, next we have The Wachowski Brothers' Bound. This is not a film I've seen but it's on my list of film I should see one day. This release includes both the R-rated and unrated versions.
Space Nazis arrive in region 1 this week in Iron Sky. Only available on Blu-ray at the moment. The DVD appears to be slated for October. However I believe this is the version which the director has disavowed after the publisher rushed it out without any of the extra features he wanted to include.
Next is a bunch of anniversary releases on Blu-ray. Full Metal Jacket 25th Anniversary is out in a new Blu-ray book package. Grosse Pointe Blank: 15th Anniversary Edition and Adventures in Babysitting: 25th Anniversary Edition are also out this week.
finally in TV we have Grimm season 1. This modern-fairy-tale police procedural is out this week on Blu-ray or on DVD.
Region 2 this week (6th August) new release list
We've got a much slower release week in region 2. Top of the list this week is Twenty Twelve - Series 2 on DVD. This is an Olympic related comedy apparently but it's the first time I've even heard of it. There's also a Series 1+2 Box set available.
Next up is Le Havre from director Aki Kaurismäki. This is not a film I know a great deal about however in region 1 it was released by Criterion so that's a good indicator of quality. It's out this week on Blu-ray or on DVD.
David Niven & Peter Sellers' version of Bond gets another re-release this week. The 1967 Casino Royale is available on Blu-ray or DVD.
New to Blu-ray this week is John Cleese comedy A Fish Called Wanda.
In TV we have Castle - Season 3 finally arriving on DVD. There's also a Season 1-3 Box set available, although I don't know why anyone would buy that when it's not long now until season 5 will begin.
Also in TV this week are Cheers - Season 8 and Cheers - Season 9 both on DVD.
While the standard releases at Amazon are a bit lacking this week there are 4 new Universal 100th Anniversary Exclusive Steelbooks out this week.
The Bourne Trilogy Box Set
The Thing
Pitch Black
I'm seriously tempted by these but I already own most of them in a standard edition. I don't have the Bourne Trilogy yet so I'll probably grab that. The Bourne Legacy looks separate enough that it won't bug me if I end up buying that in a separate set. I'll probably end up buying Serenity as well. I love that film an the package looks lovely. Also I've only got the DVD version so it's probably worth and upgrade to HD.
Those are the highlights which stood out to me this week.

(New Releases) Week of February 7th - Breaking Dawn - Part I, Downton Abbey (S2), Lady and the Tramp, A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas

Region 1 this week (7th February) new release list
Top release this week is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part I. I have very little to say about this other than it is now available on Blu-ray and on DVD. Although for some unknown reason Amazon is listing those as shipping on the 11th.
British favourite (although not of mine) Downton Abbey is next up. Series two is now available on Blu-ray and on DVD.
Disney's Lady and the Tramp gets a Diamond Edition re-release in multiple configurations. Three-Disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy or Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo in Blu-ray Packaging or Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo in DVD Packaging.
Harold & Kumar are back with A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas and there are three versions available of this: 3D/BD/DVD/UV or BD/DVD/UV or DVD/UV.
Historical drama Anonymous is also out this week. Coming to Blu-ray and standard DVD.
The 2008 re-make of George A Romero's zombie classic Day of the Dead gets a new release on 3D Blu-ray. I don't believe this was in 3D originally was it? So I don't think this is necessary although I've not actually seen this version. Day of the Dead 3D on Blu-ray.
A couple of older films arriving on Blu-ray include A Fish Called Wanda and Casino Royale (the 1967 David Niven version).
Finally a new Criterion La Jetee/Sans Soleil. Le Jetee of course being the inspiration for 12 Monkeys.
Region 2 this week (6th February) new release list
Top of region 2 this week is One Day, drama starring Anne Hathaway now available on Blu-ray or on DVD.
Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris is coming to DVD this week, but for some reason I can't seem to find a Blu-ray copy.
Romantic comedy Friends With Benefits is coming out on Blu-ray and on DVD.
Also the new version of Footloose is arriving on Blu-ray and DVD.
There are a bunch of older films arriving on Blu-ray for the first time including Legend, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Thelma & Louise, Teen Wolf and Serendipity. Also Garden State with Natalie Portman and Zach Braff gets a Blu-ray special edition.
Finally in TV there is Fry's Planet Word a documentary from Stephen Fry about language.
Holy Flying Circus is a "fantastical re-imagining" of the events surrounding the release of Monty Python's Life of Brian.
Last but not least is the final series of The Sarah Jane Adventures now available on Blu-ray and on DVD. Also a Series 1-5 box set is available.
Those are the highlights which stood out to me this week.

Every James Bond actor in a fight to the death

A reminder of who will be fighting:
(I'm going to leave out David Niven/Barry Nelson and everything to do with the 1954/1967 Casino Royale stuff)
Some Basic Rules
Age: All fighters are when they were in their prime and playing James Bond.
Location: Bullfighting arena. They are (obviously) not allowed to leave the arena at any point in time
I'll leave the MI6 issued gadget distribution up to you. Each Bond can have no more than one gadget. They can all have the same gadget, or they can all have different ones if you think a certain Bond may suit a different gadget better.
