That's why it's based as fuck
check'd and dare I say correct
BUT LATER HE IS ALIVE?
Well, he didn't die.
How? He took a bullet to the head?
show me the body
I can't. It was in a explosion
Illiterate retard detected, disregard thread.
Caught fish line and sinker.
Um, sweaty? It's illegal to deny violent events according to the ToS.
Ouromov's gun was filled with blanks. It was a ruse to capture James. But James BUSTED THE FUCK OUT AND JUMPED OFF A CLIFF ON A FUCKING MOTORBIKE THEN JUMPED OFF THE MOTORBIKE INTO A FUCKING PLANE IN FUCKING MID AIR
Why didn't the Russians account for this possibility in their planning?
They were no match for Brosnan.
Putin wasn't in Charge, yet.
No, Alec wanted Bond to escape so that he would go back to MI6 and tell everyone Alec was dead thus absolving him and freeing him up to start his arms-dealing syndicate
so Alec set up the whole motorcycle escape?
2nd best opening sequence. Best will always be webm related.
>OH NO HE'S GOING TO DIE JAMES BOND IS GOING TO DIE
what if one of his skis had sliced through that chute? this vexes me
His torn chute would've been useless and he'd have plummeted to a grisly, violent death. I hope this comforts you.
>I hope this comforts you.
no not really
Eh, Bond plots are usually pretty wacky.
Eh, Bond plots are usually pretty wacky.
if it ain't broke
That would mean that I would get tons of pussy
no time, he would have died.
he spins to eject the skis away from him
My favourite thing about this sequence is how awesome and dangerous this stunt is. My second favourite is how infuriated everyone gets by the cowbell in the funky as shit 70s soundtrack and Roger's silly yellow outfit.
That's funny, I remember him being a tank and shooting everything that moved on the runway including turret guns.
>I remember him being a tank
Yeah Brosnan's pretty built
What blood got splattered ?
It was filled with blanks you retard
You're a retard if you think blanks can make someone fall over. And don't say Alec knew exactly when he would fire the blank and timed it exactly right to realistically fall over in a believable way. You have no idea how hard that is. But realism and non comic book logic is just too hard for you to grasp
No I don't think I will
Apparently suspension of disbelief in a fucking Bond movie of all things is too difficult for you so I’m not sure you’re in a great position here
Yes. I don't need realism but I do need believability, and trust me, there's a difference
Not really addressing the point but ok. Sorry you can’t enjoy things I guess?
I never said I didn't enjoy it. It's just a silly opening. I'm sorry you can't read.
>And don't say Alec knew exactly when he would fire the blank and timed it exactly right to realistically fall over in a believable way.
That’s exactly what the actors did in real life.
Yeah but actors are specially trained and have a natural talent for that sort of deception.
And secret agents don't?
>spies aren't trained in deception
Exactly. That's how Lazenby got the role. He lied
To be fair to OP, he does shoot one of his own soldiers like 5 seconds later so either he had the foresight to only put one blank in the magazine or he got his own guy to fake his death as well.
>007, I'm General Ouromov.
somewhat gay stance
He's a high ranking officer in the Soviet military, he's probably taken part in dedovschina many times.
>he got his own guy to fake his death as well.
THE PLOT THICKENS
There were no blanks. Orumov just aimed slightly away from Alec's head and fired. From Bond's POV he wouldn't have been able to tell the difference.
But there are real problems during that scene, like how Alec kills a couple of Oruomov's men (unless they were also acting) and how he survives all those barrels falling on him.
>There were no blanks. Orumov just aimed slightly away from Alec's head and fired. From Bond's POV he wouldn't have been able to tell the difference.
this is quite plausible
>how he survives all those barrels falling on him.
healthy diet and exercise?
>and how he survives all those barrels falling on him.
half of everything is luck James
>But there are real problems during that scene, like how Alec kills a couple of Oruomov's men
1. He's a double agent. He would need to kill a few to not blow his cover.
2. It's the Russian Army. They're all easily replacable. It isn't like Ouromov's going to berate him angrily and walk away from whatever his objective is.
Keep in mind Ouromov was working for Trevelyan all along. Trevelyan was actually Janus, and he and Ouromov were working together to steal the Goldeneye. Then Janus could get revenge on England for getting his parents killed. He was one angry Lienz Cossack.
>How the Cossacks Were Betrayed by Britain in World War II
>this was state of the art graphics in 1997
For a video game console that is. Mind you 3D technology advanced so fast in the mid to late 90s that quake was literally a year old by this point
>zoomies will never know the insane jump of graphics from 1992 to 1996 and then from 1996 to 2003, and then a smaller but still noticeable jump from 2003 to 2007 and then nothing.
I’ll never forget playing HL2 in 2004 and thinking wow this is the best graphics we’ll ever get.
doom 3 came out that year and btfo's hl2 graphics
In fairness it's still a remarkable looking game.
Still holds up but no legs and arms while driving ruined it for me
>and then nothing.
yeah what up wit dat
how does that make sense
What are you missing? He means diminishing returns because it takes more processing power to render "improvements" that are less noticeable. There's a huge gap in hardware performance, but that doesn't mean that gap is commensurately perceived. It's true for a lot of tech (I think going from movies in 480p to 2K is much more striking than 2K to 4K even with bigger screens, and a lot of home computing power is excess because many people use their PCs today to do the exact same things they were doing in 1999) but it's especially true for video games. Video games have always been an industry of shallow hucksters pandering to teenagers that want high-resolution keys jangled in front of them in between their ritualistic bouts of fellatio. The industry ran into the wall headfirst with alacrity.
It's better to just outgrow video games.
I rarely play them anymore. Just 1 or 2 games a year.
Yeah, it was pretty good.
>>How the Cossacks Were Betrayed by Britain in World War II
You brit FUCK!!!
Did he, anon? Did he?
He was likely already a double agent at that point and planned on getting captured
this seemed obvious to me even as a child
>OP confirmed for having a lower mental capacity then a child
many such cases
Literally. Once he's revealed as a villain, you're supposed to say in your head "oh, I guess that whole thing in the beginning was planned by the russians to cover him."
It's actually wild that people can't comprehend a Bond plot. They aren't exactly complicated
The only problem is James believing the fake gunshot
>Was getting caught part of his plan?
he was spared by his co-conspirator, General Ouromov, the dude with the funny face. The whole thing was a setup. The only part they didn't plan for was James setting the explosives to detonate early
He lived to die another day.
>so you live to skyfall another tomorrow never dies
He should be careful: you only live twice.
Fun Fact. The bond villian in this movie played bond in the BBC radio play adaptation of all the bond novels. They are all kino and free on youtube
It's the gay pirate from Black Sails
If you want to play the connection game than Sean Bean, Daniel Craig, Toby Stephens, Julian Fellowes, Michael Byrne are in both Sharpe and James Bond.
So many great british actors are in Sharpe
>>[background mumbling] It is Commander Bond.
>BBC radio play adaptation
so they made bond a trans migrant?
To translate it to American: 006 and Russia Bad Man are friends all along. 006 is a spy and works with Russia Bad Man to steal Russia superweapon. 007 doesn't know. Russia Bad Man shoots 006 with blank and stages his death. Later 007 must stop the bad men from using the bad satellite on London.
Well done, James. You worked out it was just a chance for the audience to question my allegiances in memory recall. Now I'm going to give you the same 3 (You)s you gave me.
Indeed. Taking a point blank headshot, surviving, then working for the group that did it and then taking them over.
Also that he was born too long after WW2 for the Cossack betrayal to make sense.
They originally touted Anthony Hopkins for the role, who was old enough.
>TFW Dalton quit right before this movie as well.
Brosnan was ecellent though. Goldeneye remains a top 3 Bond film
It’s a blank, he already told the Russians they would be there and was working with Oromov to set up a plan to steal the goldeneye and it’s said they needed each other because Oroumov has security access.
Since Alec was ‘dead’ it was easy to be criminal.
Bond sets the timers for 3 minutes which fucks up the plan because they were going to disarm the bomb after bond left or was captured.
>Bond sets the timers for 3 minutes which fucks up the plan because they were going to disarm the bomb after bond left or was captured.
Alec should of seen this coming. How does he not know his partner well enough to know that he's smart
*smart enough to think ahead
maybe he didn't even point the gun at him properly, but Bond couldn't tell from his angle
it's not a great bond movie
it's better than Spectre
what is there not to get? Ouromov was already in on the plan, and this let Alec “be dead” for 9 years so he could run Janus without anyone questioning his death
why the chose “nine years” specifically makes no sense though, that means it took place in 1986 thus retconning all of the Dalton era???
For me, it's Surface 1
Goldeneye ost goes hard
thank you whoever casted that pole. she gave me a thing for slavic women back in the day
Goldfinger's plan to irradiate all the gold in fort knox wouldn't work since gold has a really short half life. Also mi6 just let him go trough with his plan right up until the point of asking the bomb for some reason
>Goldfinger's plan to irradiate all the gold in fort knox wouldn't work since gold has a really short half life.
If the fort and surrounding area is heavily irradiated that would still make the gold inaccessible and his plan would still be a success.
Um, haven't you ever heard of hazmat suits?
Reboot bond with blatantly sexist James like connery. Literally slapping girls asses and telling them the men are talking. And call the female characters "vagina foryou" and stuff
>Reboot bond with blatantly sexist James
Not a chance with Barbara in control.
I thought they shot him in the cheek? Am I crazy or did he have a huge fucking scar on his face later in the movie?
That was because Bond reset the timers on the explosives to go off sooner. Trevelyan was caught in the explosion.
I used to blow up the tanks and wander around facility until I died from the toxins.
Based. I used to lead Dr. Doak into elaborate death traps involving countless proximity mines.
Bond set the timer of a bomb early in the begining catching alec in the blast
>The only part they didn't plan for was James setting the explosives to detonate early
Boo hoo I got some facial scaring yet I'm still a handsome man and my plan to fake my death and capture a secret world domination weapon succeeded. How will I ever live
>How will I ever live
One day at a time, anon. One day at a time.
Why would he be mad about that? Bond thought he was dead anyways.
You are genuinely one of the dumbest naggers I've encountered during my 16 years on this website.
Two quick ones
He's already getting there on the perfect line
God i hate speedwatchers.

Why did this movie spend 20 minutes showing us how destructive Goldeneye is yet then later on reveal that it's only being used to bankrupt London? It really ruins the pacing and really has not that much of a point. They should've cut down on the scene. Same thing with Casino Royale, would've been a perfect movie if they cut it down and got rid of the retard stupid ass CGI airport chase that goes on for way too long
Every bond movie has pacing issues
they could easily do that much physical damage with just the helicopter they stole
the goldeneye is powerful because of the EMP blast that could cause much further and long lasting damage
Didn't they say the emp blast damage was going to be minimum and that the real lasting damage would be to Britain's economy
>emp blast damage was going to be minimum
I don't remember it being 'minimum' physical damage however,
>the real lasting damage would be to Britain's economy
Yes - it would destroy a bunch of government and corporate records (as part of the cover up of the operation), crashing the British economy and for that matter the global economy.
To paraphrase Bond Trevelyan is a little boy that wants revenge against the British and is little better than a bank robber. The EMP would tank the British (and with it global) economy but, it also masks the theft.
As much as I like Sean Bean and I get why they got him, he is really the wrong actor for the part as it is written. Trevelyan should be older than Bond if they do the Cossack story however, Bean is even younger than Brosnan,
fucking kino. take me back.
You're right it makes no sense. Bond dives off an incredibly high dam and enters an underground bunker, then exits and finds himself on top of a mountain.
is it even possible to stand that upright in a tank's hatch and still work the controls?
Probably not with the T-55.
Just think about it, when the car goes over the bridge (not shown here) there is a stuntman that gets run over, he has to anticipate it, and not just roll on the car but bounce on it and then fall on the river.
Was the double agent video game him or was it supposed to just be some other random guy?
random guy, trying to cash in on the name, EA had more faith and put more money into marketing that than Timesplitters 3.
I think the DS version was fine, even if you had to put your hands in a very awkward position.
I don't think GoldenEye is very good. I have a lot of fondness for it because I remember it being one of the first Bond movies I saw, but it's close to being a generic action movie. I'm not even sure it would make my top 10 Bond movies.
People only like it because it reminds them of the videogame
Bond movies make little sense in general, what did you expect?
I still don't get it, why would Sharpe betray England like this? He took the King's shilling for pity's sake!
You can't trust a Cossack.
The thing that never made sense to me is the pen grenade joke. Like Bond clicks it a bunch of times and jokes about losing count, and Q just says "grow up" and puts it in his pocket. Was it just a prototype pen, not really a grenade?
Q is part of the continuum so a live grenade isnt a threat to him and he doesnt care if Bond blows himself up due to childish antics.
He died for England
How does this not make sense?
Sean Bean's character was ALREADY working with the Russian general. Same Russian general who was working for Bean's character/stole Goldeneye. Their plan was to kill Bond, as numerous other 00's were being killed.
Bond set the timers early instead of the time they agreed on. This foiled their plan and allowed Bond to escape.
What they wanted to happen is for Bond to come out and surrender, they kill him, then shut bombs off.
Yes both the general and Bean's character survive the explosion, but Bean is left with a scar.
So if their plan was to kill Bond, then why fake being shot? Why wouldn't Alec just walk up and be like "hey bro" and shoot Bond in the head? What would be the point of putting on a little play faking your own death and then immediately try to kill the only person the fake death was supposed to fool?
Funnily enough, it was 006's "For England, James" that more than likely inspired 007 to proceed with the plan. Trevelyan basically told him that it was okay to sacrifice him.
You talking about GoldenEye: Rogue Agent? Different guy.
Yeah I played it on the original DS back in the day
the Craig movies were so FUCKING SHIT bros
Why did 006 plan to get himself caught in 1986 (intro) then do nothing but pretend to be a crime lord in moscow for nine years, until a helicopter happened to be invented that would let him steal the goldeneye?
Was that his plan all along? To wait for the french to build a suitable getaway vehicle?
What was ouromov doing this whole time? He survived the fall of the soviet union and stayed a senior officer in the russian military, sounds like he was pretty committed.
Did 006 even know about the Goldeneye back then? Maybe their plan was to fake Alec's death and actually let Bond escape so that way Alec could be a rogue agent working with Ouromov. The entire time Alec was doing crimeboss shit as Janus until the discovery of the goldeneye in which he used his old handler from the Soviet days to hatch a plan to steal and use it. I think James was meant to escape the facility to inform M16 that Alec was killed, that way Alec could go on to become Janus without having anyone look for him. Then an opportunity presented itself years later to come out of the shadows.
>I will fuck you to death!
Imagine being squeezed to death haha.
Women don't make convincing bond villains or bond villain henchmen because realistically what would they even want besides bond cock? All he has to do is give them the old bond cock and their motives to do anything else will vanish because those are just ways they distract themselves from the thought of having no bond cock in their cock recepticle.
