RE: Bond Thread
Side question: Favourite Bond Theme?

Even though it's not a decent movie, the song "License To Kill" is amazing! I also really like the songs to A View to a Kill, The Spy who Loved me and the Tomorrow Never Dies Big Grin

Yeah, what's not to like? The Bonds always were tongue in cheek movies anyway. That's what I meant by losing it's charm. Now they seem to have lost their light approach to turn them into random action movies.

Daniel Craig was excellent in "Blade III".

RE: Bond Thread
Which brings me to another thing. Who else found franchise from the Bond movies under the christmas tree? I wasn't allowed to watch at the time, but my father told me all about Goldfinger. I still remember fondly getting Bond's Aston Martin as a toy car for christmas. It even had mechanics for the ejector seat and the machine guns.

RE: Bond Thread
For mine, Connery's interpretation of 007 was the one and only.

Moore will forever be "The Saint" to me—even in the Bond movies LOL.

Aussie George Lazenby was the by far the worst 007.

Brosnan and Dalton were too much "pretty" boys. Didn't convince me.

I haven't bothered to see Craig's effort.

—I guess ultimately we owe the original success of the Bond movies to producers Broccoli and Saltzman, as well as Connery.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

RE: Bond Thread
I like Daniel Craig the best because he's the most realistic spy: he knows how to kill but doesn't seem to enjoy it and he's the least playboy of them all. The idea of spy-as-playboy ruins the illusion for me; it just doesn't seem professional.
I really liked Craig in the remake of Casino Royale, especially the parcour scene at the beginning.

IMO Craig, and Judy Dench, breathed new life into the franchise.

Just my $0.02

I agree with this. I have never seen a Bond I disliked, and in a sense, Sean Connery will always "be" Bond, because he was the first. But I too like Daniel Craig better than any of the others, including Connery.

I don't have a favorite Bond movie. They all have their pros and cons. A friend of mine intensely disliked "Skyfall" because the underwater fight was so improbable (he used the word "impossible" -- they both would have succumbed to hypothermia), but there were other equally improbable things in that movie (like Bond surviving being shot and falling off the bridge/trestle into the water in the opening sequence), and in all Bond movies. It wouldn't be a Bond movie without some extremely improbable escape, so why single that out for complaints?

RE: Bond Thread
Peirce Bronson? Really the man has the skinniest body...It's like Kevin Costner, ok on the top but the bottom half is like eeew.

Daniel Craig has the best bond bod.

Sean Connery though I think was the best Bond, even if he didn't get the best movies.

Roger Moore...I was not really a fan of him as Bond, except I did really like Live and Let Die. Until Craig, that was probably the last decent Bond movie made.

More than that, Ian Fleming wrote Bond as Connery. After the first film was made, Fleming liked Connery's Bond so much that he started tweaking the Bond character of the books to make them more like Connery. This includes, if my memory is right, giving him a Scottish father. I read all the books as a kid, and Connery is the Bond of the books.

Oh, and I hated Roger Moore's Bond.

I felt also, they just got silly after a while. Until Craig -- Now they're much more like the books (in my opinion).
