The Name is Bond

On November 14th the new Bond movie opens,Quantam of Solace. I believe this will be #22 in the series. Even though I am estranged from my father I still have a great memory as a kid, going with him to see a James Bond double feature at the theater…I believe Gold Finger was one of them. I think that was when my love for James Bond movies started. I would have to say my favorite parts of these movies are the gadgets…but I would assume they would be most people’s. So let’s see, we have had Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, Daniel Craig and someone I don’t remember George Lazenby who only starred in one, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. I would have say Roger Moore was my favorite in The Spy Who Loved Me and introduced the character Jaws.

I must say I liked Daniel Craig as Bond but was not a fan of Casino Royale. It was too “different”…I feel with Bond you have to stay with tradition. In an interview Craig was asked who would make the better bond…Obama or McCain. Craig did not hesitate…”Obama would be the better Bond because –if he’s true to his word-he’d be willing to quite literally look the enemy in the eye and go to toe-to-toe with them “. He sees McCain more in the Judy Dench role. Yeah, maybe with McCain’s experience with war Obama could have one little question for him. Then he was asked one more question…who would make the better Bond girl…Michelle or Cindy. Craig’s answer “Oh, now you’ve crossed the line”.  My favorite, Ursula Andress from Dr. No. I prefer to call them Bond Costar’s…let’s not put ownership on 007.

Do you have a favorite Bond, Bond Movie, Bond Costar?

  1. I really liked the new Bond and I really liked Casino Royale. I noticed in the previews a flashback from Royale of the woman dying which I thought was curious because usually bond movies don’t make references to older episodes. Even so, it looks very good.

    Not sure what my favorite is, Goldeneye was good, and also a great video game. Goldfinger was a good one too.
