Bond.....James Bond


Recommended Posts

Love 007

read the Ian Fleeming books as a teenager, ive never enjoyed the subsequent books written by others

Very disappointed in my first movie a view to  a kill with Timothy Dalton and Duran Duran

My favourite book was thunderball followed by on her Magisty's secrete service

I never really got the humour in the movies as its absent in the books

My favourite Bond (im sorry Sean im just too young for you) is Pierce Brosnen because to me he looks like James Bond (and i like a bit of chair on James Bond's chest)  from my mind reading the books but i think Daniel Craig despite being blond has been an excellent Bond, he plays a more serouse Bond that i like

I like Bond driving an Astin Martin 

I think Judy Dench as M was perfect

I don't like the new Q but he is possibly growing on me

 

Favourite songs 

Live and die by wings

Thunderball by Matt Munroe

Diamonds are forever by Shirley Bassey

Honerable mention to

you only twice Nancy Sinatra

Nobody does it better from the spy who loved me  Carly Simon 

Goldfinger (awsome book) Shirley Bassey

All time high from Octapussy by Rita someone ?

Best scene the spider from Dr No 

Honerable mention to Daniel Craig in his bathing trunks doing a Honey Ryder (Urslea Andress) in Cssino Royal (excellent book btw)

Best opening scene Piecre Brosnen in Golden eye

She was a great actress. Really sad. :(

Here in Germany most people know her from her role as "Emma Peel" from "The Avengers". I did see this Bond movie and it is not really a typical Bond movie. It was so sad at the end of the movie.....

I love the Agatha Christie film with Peter Ustinov in "Evil under the sun".

My Dad loved Mrs Peel

Years latter he watched teruns with my sister ( i was more a Man from uncle fan)

The book On her Magisty's secrete service had a sad ending, i have not seen all the old Bond movies because reading the books in the 80s to my young self Sean Connery and ever other wanna be 007 just didn't look like how 007 looked in my mind's eye and the books also had zero humour so generally what i saw i did not like

I didn't get my James Bond till Remington Steel took over the role

I loved thunderball and the remake with Connery, but Bronson fits my view of Bond the best.

First one I saw was Skyfall, I love the dry humor of Daniel Craig as well.

Eh? You had me wondering if Charles HAD done a Bond movie. ;) I like Daniel, too.
