    "Like every other global company, we're looking at the marketplace and we're trying to understand where the markets are down," an MGM spokesperson told CNN Business. "A huge percentage of theaters around the world are unavailable for this film."

    The spokesperson said that it "didn't seem achievable for the film to hit its high level of success" in this marketplace. "It was really an economic decision more than anything else," the spokesperson added.
    If you hate the movies so much agent999 then why not stop watching them. I guess hating on popular things on the Internet is to much fun.

    Honor Blackman has passed away at 94, which is a good run by anyone's standard.

    Just rewatching The Living Daylights yesterday. It's an odd beast. Dalton is probably the closest to what I have in my head when I read the Bond books. Brosnans too male model suave. Connery is too Scottish and charming and hulking. Moore looks completely incapable of any sort of physical activity and is just too refinded. Far too old mostly too. Lazenby is just odd. Dalton has this constant look of shrewd, calculating, desperation that I associate with Bond. Dark, handsome but cold.

    He's a pretty good Bond and I think if he'd been given Craig scripts he'd be remembered very fondly. As it is though it's like he's doing a Craig film while the rest of the production, screenwriters included, still very much have their heads in Roger Moore territory.

    It's a very disjointed and, frankly, pretty shitty film all up. I did get a laugh out of the eye rolling scene at the beginning where he drops in on the hot 80s girl on the boat but there's not a lot else to recommend.

    I really dig Dalton's Bond and his films. He seems the least interested in sex and its been explained somewhere that its because of the AIDS epidemic. I wish he had a few more films where he was a bit more into getting laid.

    TLD has one of my favorite Bond soundtracks. I have a few tracks in some of my regular playlists. The pre-credits sequence is one of my favs as well.

    I agree with the both of yous. Dalton is massively underrated. And the two films he made, if flawed, felt like a step back in somwhat the right direction for the series. That said, I kind of liked Brosnan as well, but his films save for GoldenEye are absolutely terrible, and a real low mark for the series. So I suppose it was a good time for Dalton the drop out of it, as it was really going downhill.

    Quite spectacular a save though, with Casino Royale, that made the series come back from the dead.

    Agreed (although they're somehow watchable despite being rather embarrasing). But Goldeneye is quite good indeed. It's a got a great (barely) 'post cold war' atmosphere and Brosnan is very good. Well, there is some nostalgia as well. It was the 1st Bond film I saw in theatre, at the age of 9 (this seems to be a family tradition, my dad was also 9 when his dad took him to see Dr. No).

    There is a (surprisingly) good 'watch with' thingum on Esquire's Youtube channel, broadcast live a week or so ago, in which you can watch GOLDENEYE alongside Pierce Brosnan, who provides a commentary on the action.
