    This is something off topic, but I just revisited some Bond movies from 60s, 70s and early 80s and I feel something weird. Most of the driving scenes or skiing scenes with the actors in front of the background, the background always looks... well, unnaturally, it's always dimmer than the actors. Seems like the actors are actually acting in front of a projector screen?
    If not, then it should be shooting techniques were suck back then.

    Actually the theme song to Goldeneye is "Goldeneye" by Tina Turner. YES I KNOW MY JAMES BOND VERY WELL THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

    I usually don't say I'm an expert on many things but James Bond is one of the them (the movies, at least). My favorites would have to be...

    They probably used a green screen or projector. Another side note, it's also a lot harder for actors to, you know, act if they're focusing on driving a car, especially at high speeds and such. Generally the cars are towed by a lead car, but that's not for action scenes.

    The Steadicam also launched in 1976 and basically having an effective car chase sequences in the way they filmed it would be a wobbly mess. It's why if you ever see like "beauty shots" of locales for movies before then they're all wobbly, yet when you watch anything on Discovery Channel nowadays it's smooth.

    Nowadays with special effects it's a lot less noticeable than back then and yes, it's a cheesy effect, but it works and they'll cut to an actual chase scene now and then.

    Like this one, you can tell it's apparently a rear projection. Man, the first time watching this scene, I laughed to hard because sometimes the car chasing Bond gets even bigger than his. Still a good car chase scene though.


    Back to main topic.

    This is the best Bond theme without a doubt. I love the way it starts out quiet and then suddenly bursts into the music.

    Ringo Starr's version of Goldfinger. They didn't use it in the movie because... well, I'll let him tell you. Take it away Ringo -

    The classic tune and easily the best altho if you goto Goto 3:34 and listen to this then i challange you to find a better version of the classic bond theme.
