Why ChatGPT thinks Aaron Taylor-Johnson should be James Bond

There have been a lot of news articles recently, regarding the use of ChatGPT. So I thought I’d ask it the question everyone wants to know. Who should be the next James Bond? The below was written entirely by ChatGPT.

The idea of a James Bond film sparks excitement and anticipation around the world, as the series has become a beloved cultural institution, the only question on fans lips now is “who will take up the iconic role?”.

Out of all the names speculated, there’s only one that stands out. Aaron Taylor-Johnson. He’s the perfect choice for Bond. Known for his impressive range as an actor, Johnson has showcased his talent in both leading and supporting roles over the years. He is equally capable of portraying action, drama, and comedy.

As a character actor, Johnson is skilled in creating believable characters, with a vulnerability and charm that has captivated audiences around the world. He is adept at subtle character nuances, which will be an important skill to bring to playing Bond.

In addition to his exceptional acting abilities, Johnson is also an action star. He brings to the role a physicality that can handle the demands of a Bond movie. He is an expert in martial arts and stunt work.

He has the classic features of a James Bond that have become iconic through a wide range of interpretations of the character. His strong jawline and piercing green eyes give him the equivalent of Bond’s trademark masculinity. His physical stature are a requirement for any actor who takes on the coveted role. Additionally, Taylor-Johnson has an athletic build that enables him to handle more action-oriented roles, something that any actor taking on the role of James Bond must do.

Beyond physicality, Taylor-Johnson has the right experience to take on the role. He certainly has the pedigree of a capable action star, as seen in roles in action-packed films such as Kick-Ass, Bullet Train and Avengers: Age of Ultron. More importantly, Taylor-Johnson has demonstrated the psychological depth of a classically trained character actor.

With his proven acting chops and a track record of producing some of the biggest blockbusters of recent years, he has the star power and charisma to make the role his own. He is also in peak physical condition, allowing him to effectively explore the physically demanding action sequences that come with being James Bond. His natural charm, wit and confidence all fit perfectly with the Bond persona, making him an ideal choice for the role.

Running Down Corridors-The RTD Christmas specials

As we approach RTD2, your dynamic trio take a look at the RTD Christmas specials.

The Christmas specials of Doctor Who written by Russell T Davies (2005-2009) explored humanity and the human cost of war and showed some of the Doctor’s greatest moments of heroism.

In The Christmas Invasion (2005) viewers were introduced to David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor and saw his successful thwarting of the Sycorax invasion of Earth.

In The Runaway Bride (2006) the Doctor reunited with old flame Donna Noble and had to rescue her from the Empress of the Racnoss.

In Voyage of the Damned (2007) the Doctor teamed up with Astrid to defend the Titanic in Space against the hostile alien force known as the Host.

In The Next Doctor (2008) the Doctor encountered his future self and fought off a robotic infestation. In The End of Time (2009), viewers saw the Doctor’s final farewell to his human companions before his regeneration into the Eleventh Doctor.

The specials explored themes of family, love, heroism, and faith while showcasing why Russell T Davies and David Tennant were both so popular with the general public.

Happy Christmas, to all of you at home. Thanks for listening. We’ll be back in the New Year. Albeit with a slightly different line-up. For personal reasons, Sam has decided to step down from the podcast. All is still well with The Bad Wilf family and there will always be a seat at the table for him, should he choose to return.

Review-Miles Morales Spider-Man issue #1

Miles Morales: Spider-Man #1 marks the start of a new chapter in Miles’s personal, familial and friendly journeys, whilst he fights super-villains in New York City. Nonetheless, balancing his civilian life with his heroic responsibilities proves to be more complicated than he ever could have imagined.

Cody Zieglar’s opening installment of Miles Morales’ new series of escapades, Miles Morales: Spider-Man #1, is definitely worth a read. Though there are a few minor criticisms, it is generally a strong issue with an outstanding start.

Miles starts a new chapter in his life with a dawn battle with Scorpion, which leads to a civilian being saved, a good deal of destruction of property getting him in trouble with the NYPD, and tardiness that sets him back at school. Although he is great at taking on bad guys while in costume, he can’t help but be defiant with his teachers which brings on a suspension and a little bit of in-depth thinking concerning the direction of his life.

Zieglar deserves recognition for describing a teenager battling a twofold existence in a considered manner. Even when confronted with difficulty, Miles does not become jaded or miserable; this equilibrium enables the reader to form a link of sympathy with him, consequently forming a deep emotional attachment to his affliction.

Eventually, a new antagonist appears who has a strong grudge against Miles. Whether they are an interesting character or not is yet to be determined. Nevertheless, the story offers enough interest to motivate readers to continue the story with another issue.

What are the minor critiques cited in the discussion about Miles’s argument with his teacher, the schoolroom scene, and the villain’s monologue? Miles’s references to lotteries and privilege come off as buzzwords without much context, leaving the audience to question whether he won an actual lottery or is making a reference to a School Choice lottery or is using lottery as a metaphor.

Additionally, Ziegler tries too hard to use social buzzwords and local references rather than being clear, which takes away from the overall quality of the film. Though these are only small cons, they are hard to ignore.

The awesome artwork of Vincentini and Valenza is easily recognizable. Their action slots present a dynamic and continuous movement in which punches land with strength.

The inspiring and sentimental scenes have been carried out brilliantly. In order to make future issues even better, Vincentini should attempt to incorporate more wider shots during physical encounters to help create a greater sensation of magnitude. The use of close-ups in this issue sometimes left the action feeling quite confined.

Review-Torchwood: The Lincolnshire Poacher

Mysterious signals lead Torchwood to the Moil. 4-1-8-4. Greg likes countryside walks and recording the songs of birds. 3-6-2-7. No one knows the secret of the numbers stations. 1-2-0-5.

How long has Ianto Jones been trapped in the boiler room? 9-7-2-3. Reality is collapsing. 3-5-8-1.

The Lincolnshire Poacher is waiting.

The Lincolnshire Poacher is an extraordinary audio experience. It’s tense and creepy and will find the listener saying “Nope!” out loud several times. It feels like a Jordan Peele film. David Shaw-Parker plays the antagonist, Greg, who may be the most terrifying villain Torchwood has ever seen/heard. For the most part, Greg is the central figure, with Ianto taking on a more supporting role.

Using real-life number stations in the UK, their eerie, robotic spiels actually form the plot of this story. Greg performs his routine each day, documenting into old audio devices while he toils in the Moil and sets animal traps.

As always, Gareth David-Lloyd gives a stirring performance as Ianto, who is faced with his own trap and no clear way out.

The Moil has an interesting meaning as an archaic word for “to work hard, often in the mud”, and the choice to use it creates a nebulous atmosphere. Lisa Bowerman’s direction and Toby Hrycek-Robinson’s sound designs bring the whole experience to life with amazing sound and atmospheric music. Lauren Mooney and Stuart Pringle make an excellent writing partnership, I hope they team up together in the future.

Overall, The Lincolnshire Poacher is another strong instalment of the Torchwood monthly Range. The unique story and experimental themes will keep you guessing throughout. If you’re a fan of the strange, dark and mysterious. This is the audio for you.

With the Doctor Who monthly range now defunct, Torchwood is proving itself to be a more than worthy successor.

Torchwood contains adult material and may not be suitable for younger listeners.

Torchwood: Review-Torchwood: The Lincolnshire Poacher is available to buy from Big Finish.

Professor Dave tribute

Here in podcast land, we lost one of our own recently. David Keep from Professor Dave’s Ark in Space sadly passed away last week. Dave was loved in our community, a true unsung hero of the genre.

This is a re-upload from 2010, where Dave and his future wife, Elizabeth. Joined us to discuss the Doctor Who episode Midnight.

As this episode is nearly 13 years old, the sound quality may not be up to today’s standards. But this is a very important episode for us here at Bad Wilf Towers, as I explain in a newly recorded intro.

Our thoughts go out to Elizabeth. We love you, Dave.

Review-The Banshees of Inisherin

In 1923, on a tiny remote island, just off the coast of Ireland. Two friends find themselves at odds. When one of them decides he doesn’t like the other anymore.

It’s as basic a premise as one can think of for contemporary storytelling. And in his wondrous, wonderful, and exquisitely contained mini-opera “The Banshees of Inisherin,” writer-director Martin McDonagh takes this straightforward premise and sets it ablaze, using it as a backdrop to explore the conflict in man, the nature of pride and spite, the significance of companionship, and the curious edges of the male ego.

It’s a darkly comic drama that packs an emotional gut punch, after emotional gut punch and consistently finds new ways to deliver brutal body blows.

After portraying hitmen in McDonagh’s 2008 cult classic “In Bruges,” Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson reunited for the role of the men who are no longer friends when the film opens.

Like they do every day at 2:00 p.m., the unassuming Pádraic (Farrell) stops by Colm’s (Gleeson’s) beachside cottage to see if he wants to join him for a pint, at the local pub. But this time he’s snubbed by Colm. Later, he arrives, and Colm declines Pádraic’s offer to sit next to him. Pádraic, like the other patrons in the pub, is unable to comprehend just what is happening. The following day, Colm makes it very clear. He tells him, “I just don’t like you no more.” Did they have a drunken fight? Was it something he said? It’s not really that easy. Colm, who enjoys the arts and plays the fiddle. Has come to the realisation that Pádraic is boring. He’s sick of discussing the same issues, over and over. He just wants to be left alone.

Pádraic is gobsmacked to lose his closest friend, whilst Colm desperately seeks to leave some sort of musical legacy behind. Others like Siobhán (Kerry Condon) and Dominic (Barry Keoghan) are left to choose between picking up the pieces or looking out for themselves.

Condon and Keoghan absolutely shine in the film and steal every scene they’re in. Siobhán is easily the smartest person on the Island, confined by the attitudes of the era. Whilst Dominic is a deeply troubled character. Keoghan is a shoo-in for best supporting actor at the BAFTAs.

In lesser hands, Colm may seem unreasonable in his behaviour but Gleeson plays him with such world-weary depth, it’s impossible to dislike him. Farrell is also incredible as the bemused underdog, Pádraic.

It may not be as re-watchable as In Bruges, but The Banshees of Inisherin is a masterful exploration of the complications of male friendship.  Undoubtedly one of the best films of the year.

The Banshees of Inisherin is out in the UK on October 21st.
