    It dates the film (The Spy who loved me?). During the Cold War private armies were cheap. Modern Bond films have to make do with CGI, so you'd need to be digitised first.

  6. I always wondered how they managed to dig out volcanoes and build evil empires without anyone noticing?
    And why did nobody fit fuses in the evil empires? bullet in the control board and the whole fukcing lot went up.
  7. I dont want to be digitised it hurt last time

  8. I always thought it was terribly helpful of the baddies to put a digital countdown clock on the inside of bombs so you know exactly how much time you have to disarm it.
  9. a mate of mine managed to piss off some bomb disposal types, following a firearms operation they were shown the now safe devices, he asked if EOD can't get there in time did they cut the red or the blue wire- not happy bunnies from what he told me

  12. You lot may laugh, but since digitalisation the bottom has fallen out of the film extras game.
    'Hire a Walt' & 'Boys R Us' have both gone to the wall, not to mention the bankrupcy of many firms associated with the Papier Mache industry. The Military Film Covenant used to provide Jobs For Extras Heroes but now the only work I can get is washing condoms for re-use at Madam *****'s House of Oriental Massage & Correction.
    What a come down from '24th Startrooper on the right, 5th row, having a fag in the ranks'.
    It's a crime, I tell you.

  13. This might explain why Cdr Bond never seemed to have much difficulty defeating them.

    To the OP though - beware: do you really want your loved ones recieving that call, telling them that you've been run over by a road-roller or decapitated by an ill-tempered, mutated sea bass?
