    In Russia and Cuba, he told Bond the whole reason he tried to destroy the UK’s economy was payback for the British governments betrayal of the Lienz Cossacks, particularly his parents. He told Bond they survived Stalin’s execution squads, but his father killed himself and Alec’s mother because he couldn’t live with the shame.

    What "shame" is he talking about exactly? If they escaped Stalin’s guns, that would’ve been good news, or did they die before being sent back to Russia? Or did they really escape the execution, but because everyone knew they were Cossacks, they were shunnedand driven mad by being surrounded by accusing eyes?

    Alec said the British about knew about them being Cossacks. Did they keep an eye on them while they were in Russia, which could be how they drafted young Alec to their side after his parent’s killed themselves?

    Is that what he’s referring to?

    Okay, I wanna know as much about Boris as possible, because there’s still stuff I don’t get. In the first scene we see of him, particularly when he makes the decision to go outside and have a cig (just when the tiger helicopter shows up), does he know who’s coming?

    Like, really what makes him so evil? Was he already with Alec and Ourumov from the getgo, or was he persuaded into it? I guess I might have some more analyzing of the movie to do, but I STILL don’t get what the deal is with Boris.

    If Xenia was about to kill you with her killer legs.. How would you escape? Or would there be no escape?

    Your hands would be free so why couldn’t you belt her in the face with something or in the nuts?

    Holy *beep* I keep forgetting how Sean Bean played the villain in this film. It’s like some kind of memory lapse I have, and I keep discovering it again and again, like a hidden gem of wonderful knowledge.

    Amazing how a working class mug from a *beep* like Sheffield can end up starring in the next James Bond film. :D

    When Bond meets Alec and realizes that he is Janus ….. who shoots him in the neck with the dart before he’s put into the chopper? We see this person walk out from behind a statue right after Bond passes out and right before the scene changes.

    Is it the KGB agent, or Ourumov? Maybe a random goon?

    Thanks

    PS Spoiler ………. I found it funny for some reason that when Bond and Natalya were trapped in the train (right before he escaped using his laser watch) that he said "1 inch armor plating" ….. funny because #1 – He somehow knew that it was an inch ….. and #2 – he is a British agent and used a non-metric measurement system to describe it.

    We all know if we’ve seen the movie that Alec comes back after having been thought dead for nine years. What I still don’t get is this: Did he do nothing for those years and stay out of the spotlight, or was he Janus even before he was thought dead? How exactly did the Janus group operate? I’ll probably be asking more questions if this thread develops and I can remember what I was going to ask.

    In the very beginning after the opening titles. That scene was cool, but would have been better without that porn music. Hell, even Serra has admitted to hating the music during that scene.

    "No, for me."

    A sort of touching moment. Two old friends. Very sad. Reminds me of a legendary film "The Third Man". I liked that ending. A great film.

    It’s the scene where Mishkin is interrogating James and Natalya. Ourumov storms in because he’s worried that Bond will expose him. To cover himself, he kills Mishkin, as well as the guard in the room, with Bond’s gun, and then allows Bond to attempt escape.

    This means the guard that was sitting in on the interrogation wasn’t in on Ourumov’s betrayal. So it’s a pretty safe bet that none of the guards that are in the rest of the building are corrupt either. This means when Bond escapes, he’s mowing down regular Russian soldiers who are just trying to capture someone they think stole the Tiger helicopter, murdered Mishkin, and then broke out.

    In every other movie, the soldiers that Bond wades through are evil henchmen. Bond even kills a bunch of Janus soldiers later on in this movie. But in this scene, the guys he’s killing are just misinformed regular-old Russian soldiers. He might as well be killing those soldiers that were in the marching band shown earlier in the film.

    Natalya doesn’t even seem phased by all this. What would you do if a Russian spy broke you out of an American military base and began slaughtering American soldiers to escape?

    Goldeneye is one of my favorite bonds, but i always thought it was the most violent one of of them all. do you agree. The scenes in the movie were pretty close to something you would see in an r rated film. Which bond movie did you find more violent than usual.

    Brosnan was the worst Bond – no wonder the series fell down! He lacks charm but he can’t help it with his nose being so high in the air; he has no personality and comes off as a snob. Can’t believe they kept him that long! And it makes you wonder that he even kept his job bashing other guys that played Bond – what an insult to the series! If we in the working world put our employers down we would be out of a job!

    Does anybody else think, that on closer inspection, there is not a great deal of substance under the surface of Brosnan’s Bond. It feels like at best one step from Remmington Steele. I am a huge fan of the series, but second viewings of the Brosnan films throw up a few question marks for me. I don’t think the performances stands up anywhere near as well as Dalton. When you watch the two Dalton films, there is so much to the the role he portrayed that you almost wish for more films to explore it, where as I was more than ready for a new Bond after the last two Brosnan films (Goldeneye was the high point without question)

    One other point on Goldeneye; what a crazy decision to bring Joe Don Baker back as a good guy after such a prominent role as a bad guy in TLD. Poor casting if ever there was..

    I have noticed a lot of people in here are gamers but I notice a lot of people saying this is their first game so here is a few questions for the Goldeneye Gamers.

    Age when you first played Goldeneye?

    Age Now?

    Fav Character to use in multiplayer

    Fav Gun in the game.

    Fav level.

    Do you think the game makes you like the movie more?

    Just some things I am curious about from everyone.

    Of the 4 Bond films that Pierce Bronsan did, I think Goldeneye was the best of the 4 films that he did. I felt that it had a stronger storyline and more interesting characters. I also thought that Pierce was much stronger in his debut than the next three films that he did.

    "You don’t like me, Bond. You don’t like my methods. You think I’m an accountant, a bean counter more interested in my numbers than your instincts." "The thought had occurred to me." "Good, because I think you’re a sexist, misogynist dinosaur. A relic of the Cold War, whose boyish charms, though wasted on me, obviously appealed to that young woman I sent out to evaluate you." "Point taken."

    Having a female boss can be a progressive step, but that wasn’t what they were going for in that one. They were going for a condemnation of the past while at the same time awaiting a handout in the form of box office returns. It wasn’t good enough to forget about the chauvinism of the past and move on. While standing on the shoulders of their predecessors, they felt the need to condemn those who got them where they are on the grounds that the views of the past are not the same as the views of today. That’s biting the hand that feeds if I ever saw it in my life. Whatever sexism, racism, nationalism, homophobia, or chauvinism the previous Bond films may have had, that level of hypocrisy far exceeds anything else that preceded it in terms of its tastelessness.

    And it’s all for nothing. Ian Fleming was long dead by this point and had taken his gender politics to the grave with him. Yet, they still saw fit to try and battle his ghost while at the same time making a profit from his creation. Dr. Frankenstein can go to Hell. But the monster he created? Now him we may have use for.

    I love this movie, but the beginning doesn’t make sense the more I analyze it. Here’s the situation:

    Bond bungee jumps off a dam so he can access an entrance to a facility at the bottom. Why didn’t he just reach it from that level in the first place?

    The entrance to the facility is apparently at a low elevation at the bottom of the dam. But after Bond makes his way through a seemingly simple building that doesn’t seem to have many levels, the main structures are above ground at a very, very high elevation on a mountain top. WTF!?

    After walking through the building, he meets up with 006 who seems like he’s been comfortably waiting for Bond. Both of them are spies for the British government, but their only noticeable objective is to rig tanks in the building with bombs and blow the whole structure to shreds. Why do they need British spies for that and why didn’t they just use a cruise missile since the whole place will be blown up anyways?

    Goldeneye, which had to be cut to avoid a 15 in the UK and an R rating in the USA, is only rated PG here in Australia. And that’s the ‘uncut’ version, the one that got re-rated ’15’ in Britain.

    Is that because the Aussie censors are too lenient, or because the British and American censors are too harsh?

    I’ve noticed most of the Bond films have only a short gap of a two to three years between them but this seems to have a huge gap from it and License To Kill.

    Anyone know why there was such a huge gap in filming?
