If "The Empire Strikes Back" was a James Bond film, this would be the opening credits

Its not a James Bond opening without a naked woman silhouette. Maybe show a wookie or something.


#3

Not to mention, the theme music should have been 'Coldfinger'.


#4

Two of my least favorite franchises in one ignorable package. Can't beat that.

It's weird, something's off about this. There are individual frames/images that are very cool, but I think a "real" title sequence would have a little more of a cohesive visual statement. Like, I really like the vector graphics TIE vs. X-wing sequence. But keep those vectors consistent...when we get to the toy-ish looking snowspeeder flying over the Vader mask, it sort of goes off the rails. But, hey, here's a person who did a thing out of love and a funny little creative impulse, so...that's cool :slight_smile:

could work for you, though. minus times minus equals plus... ; )

Previously on BoingBoing:

...Ah, but the original video link is dead. I think this should do it:

(The Buddy Rich rendition of "Machine" has been in my playlist ever since, and I am so very grateful for it.)


#8

Heh heh, yes...


#9

That's no Moonraker.


#10

I was expecting slave Leia silhouettes. (Yeah, I know, wrong episode)


#11

Well, as long as we're doing Star Wars via Saul Bass…


#12

I saw Spectre at the cinema but didn't remember the theme song. I later heard the Radiohead submission. As far as I'm concerned, the theme to that film is the Radiohead one. It has the right 'Bond' chords in it.


#13

Man, I haven't seen a Bond film since they started with naked women silhouettes. You mean they don't any more? Kids these days.


#14

I think I stopped with Bond after Connery. I mean to say, the chap's not Dr Who y'know.


#15

There were more Bonds after Moore and Connery? That's bizarre, is he a Time Lord?


#16

Yeah. For at least the Daniel Craig movies (only ones I've really watched because he's cute ^_^), there is a smooth series of transitions the entire way through where the actions hit on the beats of the music.

Agreed.


#17

And where's the view down the barrel of a gun?


#18

Meh.

That theme is better than the Sam Smith version, but neither of them have any force behind them.

I still think that ReBoot had a better Bond theme than either of the SPECTRE themes:


#19

Nice one. You have earned to go see a star war.


#20

The Radiohead song is way better than than the awful Sam Smith dirge, but the best song that should have been, but never was, a Bond theme is Nina Simone's "Feeling Good".
