Parting Shots (1999)

An Avengers reunion with Joanna, Diana Rigg and Gareth Hunt all in one film. Joanna as a strange hippy with orange clothes and blue nailpolish makes this film even more bizarre than it already was :lol:

Re: Parting Shots (1999)

She shares the screen with Gareth for the only time post-TNA, and for only a few seconds, during which they barely interact. And yet, the way Gareth leans on the bar and looks at her while she talks to him is the spitting image of the way they interacted in TNA. I think it's sweet. ^^ Old habits die hard, don't they?

Re: Parting Shots (1999)

She's mainly looking at her nails and plainly ignoring him. One of the funniest bits of the film though :lol:

There's a moment when she does look at him and you can see a spark, though. I always feel that when they're in the same room they're this close to bursting out laughing. Probably were right before this was shot. :lol:

Gareth's dearest wish was to do another series with Joanna, he loved working with her so much. This was the closest he ever got, alas. :cry:

It's a shame. Their chemistry was amazing, so it's most definitely a missed opportunity :no:

Re: Parting Shots (1999)

How come I never watched this? I think I downloaded the movie though I guess I didn't have the patience to watch the whole movie. I really ought to though, Jo and Gareth moments that were shot outside Pinewood studios are rare!

That's what Gareth said--they sparked so well and loved doing things together so much he wanted to repeat the experience. Such a shame it never happened. :no:

I'll admit I skipped through it and only watched the Gareth/Diana/Joanna parts. It went quicker and was lots of fun. :lol:

I was brave enough to watch the whole thing. The film sucked though :lol:

Oh good, I won't have to feel guilty then. :lol: I'll give the Jo/Gareth/Diana scenes a go then!

Then it's more like an Avengers clip show than a proper movie. Not like that's a bad thing. :lol:

Re: Parting Shots (1999)

Hm, I never heard of that... do we have it in the download section, it sounds most interesting from what you all described. I'm soooo behind right now, it's a shame (on me)

Re: Parting Shots (1999)

I think I put it in the download section at some point, but in very poor quality. I no longer have the file myself.

Maybe somebody else has still got it? I lost it when my harddrive crashed.
