Good movie. I like you cut the undercover part & the middle of the movie it was a little slow originally. Also the music title & song you change or play the same music is neat. It's good you took out the bad joke the other fella out. The guy in the race car derby they used upside down footage again, I noticed you took it off was nice. I liked you blow up the the picture and cut the dialogue when Bond was talking to Draco. That did not looked to easy to do. The audio, edit, Visual & commentary is great. I like the commentary when you explain what or how about the movie. I enjoy seeing it during the holidays since the movie is the holidays time. I recommend this movie. Keep up the good work.
OHMSS will never not feel like an outlier in the 007 canon for reasons beyond it being Lazenby's sole outing. The most classically tragic of the classic Bond films, the cliched recurring fan phrase about OHMSS has always been "it would be the perfect Bond movie if only Connery had been in it." While that may or may not be true (it's hard to picture Connery's blithe sociopath ever contemplating settling down), this edit is the next best thing, fixing many problematic moments/lines and tightening up the pace of the movie considerably, giving Diana Rigg's monumental turn as the ultimate Bond gal the showcase it deserves. LS' edit doesn't feel like a whole new movie, but it's a considerably better paced one, and a fitting addition to one's collection of Bond fan edits.
Watched with audio track maintaining original title theme and unchanged "We Have All the Time in the World".
Already one of my favourite Bond films despite its flaws, this edit on the whole is just a more polished product than the original theatrical release, the major exception of course being the ending music. No longer is the viewer suddenly jolted by the sudden appearance of the triumphant Bond theme over the shot of the bullet-holed windscreen, the sound now matches the visuals and maintains the mood of the ending.
Video and audio quality great, noticed no ugly cuts or errors. Definitely replaces the theatrical cut for me and would be the version I'd show to newcomers.
I'm coming late to the party on this one, however, better late than never.
I am also one of those that has over the years has increasingly come to really like this Bond. In fact, it is in my top 5 for many reasons.
The removal of what today would be regarded as fan service or purile elements, elevates this outing and makes it the serious romp it should always have been. Those knowing "to camera" moments were excruciating then, and now just awful. GONE. More vitally IMO, the trims to some of the either overlong exchanges and chases, mean that nothing outstays its welcome and agredious elements are for the most part, consined to the fanediting cutting room virtual floor.
This is now a more balanced and refined Bond overall, and although we can never resolve the issue of Geroge Baker looping Lazenby's dialogue while undercover issue, I can't mark this down for that since it is inherent to the material...(are you reading this reviewers who do that....it's not fair or logical).
What LastSurvivor has done is pushed this into the top 3 for me. It is the go to version, and already burnt to BluRay and inserted into that big ol' Book like release for the 50th Anniversay (I hope the cardboard holds up).
