[quote]Also, how does a CIA plane not have radar to pick up on the plane twice its size that snuck up on it. [/quote] I love it when people who have no idea what they are talking about have forceful opinions of how things are “supposed” to be. Apparently all planes used by the CIA are suppos...

re: 007 movies should be set in the 60's - Volvagia
[quote]fight me!![/quote] Audiences don’t really connect to the specter of the Cold War anymore outside of increasingly inaccurate generic tropes. The movie would either be an insult to the character, ironically enough in spite of being set in the character’s ideal era, or a commercial failur...
