Rewatching Tomorrow Never Dies – Throwback Thursday

The other day I was talking about this movie, and that got me back to finding this post! Definitely still a stand-out Bond movie. The original post had a good conversation, too, so you can go back and check that out if you like! The other Brosnan-era Bond films definitely also have fans, but in general people seemed to like him as Bond. I know I do!

The other day Holly and I watched Tomorrow Never Dies, and I had not watched this one in a while. I remembered really enjoying it of the Pierce Brosnan Bond movies. Though there’s a soft spot in my heart for GoldenEye – it’s got to be the videogame!

I have to say that this movie has held up pretty well. It certainly shows its historical moment – with the Internet exploding out into the public (1997!) and with the level of technology. Sure, there’s a scene with fancy invented super spy tech sitting next to a floppy disc. It’s fine. It worked. And really? It’s a villain, and a plot, that could really still happen today.

So let me look at a couple of highlights of the film, and then talk about how it stands out among the Brosnan-era Bond films. Some spoilers to come!

My Top Ten Video Games

This content originally appeared on my old blog at dbcii.com. There I have done some blogging about my master’s degree, and about blogging in general – and a bit about video games! Sorry to reuse content, but today did not work out to write the post I had intended. Expect more in the days and weeks to come!

Gamers often get into debates about which video games are their favorites, or which are the best, or influenced them most, or that you’re crazy if you don’t like. Well, I thought I would put out something of my list. To help justify my opinions, I have created a category for each, and for some even have runners up, that my top choice beats out.

Like I said, I was just at the Art of Video Games exhibit, so I know full well I am leaving out a lot of types of games. I plan to rectify this with some links to other top lists of games – so you don’t have to take my word for it! Let me know what you think.

Without further ado, and in no particular order… my top ten video games.
