    Default James Bond Thread

    I seriously hope this doesn't get scrapped due to MGM's finance troubles. Seriously, you just cannot scrap James Bond.
    It was being put on hold Indefinately a while back. But recent reports suggest it's actually been scrapped.

    http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/n...-scrapped.html

    Also, I wonder if in say 5 or so years (if this doesn't sort itself out) when another company does it,
    they'll do a mini-reboot and scrap Craig and pick up with a new actor as Bond due to all the hassle ?

    Urgh. Annoyed about this :(

    Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace were Bond in name only, so big whoop.

    Dang, and I really liked Craig.

    I enjoyed Casino Royale very much. Quantum of Solace, on the other hand, eh, not quite.

    It'd be a shame to see Craig get scrapped after only 2 Bond movies. I don't care if he didn't fit the look, he fit the character pretty well.

    You know, to this day I have never actually sat down and watched a single James Bond film.

    I know. I suck.

    You aren't missing much, really. The cliches and overstated lines and parodies pretty much cover it. What you think you know about Bond... is pretty much all there is.

    Watch On Her Majesty's Secret Service then.

    It's Lazenby, who is nobody's favorite Bond (that goes to Connery for most people) but its probably the best film.

    The end of that movie was fucking HILARIOUS.

    I'm watching it, and the only thing going through my head is "dear god, James Bond is a fucking moron."

    Goldfinger was the model all the later movies were based on. The gadgets, death scenes and bond girls and villains are all pretty memorable, and if your going to see just one Bond film, I guess that's the one.

    But OHMSS is my favorite. its got some of the best character stuff in it.

    So what are the rankings of your guys' Bonds ?

    I'd probably go

    Sean Connery
    Roger Moore
    Timothy Dalton
    Pierce Brosnan
    Daniel Craig
    George Lazenby

    Not that I dislike Craig, mind - I think he's a good Bond.
    Though I'd prefer him to have black / dark hair for the role

    Well i grew up with Pierce Brosnan so he's the typical Bond for me, but i do love Craig as well even though he does his own thang. As for Connery, I could never really look at Bond the same after he choked that girl with her bikini top.

    It t'was apparently a diffrent time back then

    Have to agree: OHMSS is possibly one of the most epic Bond films ever...heck, even Lazenby is good.

    Though it is strange that I seem to waver back and forth between the Bond styles. On one hand I'm a huge fan of more serious Bond films ("From Russia with Love", OHMSS, "For Your Eyes Only", "Goldeneye"), but I also really like a good, well made lighter film (pretty much "Goldfinger" and "The Man with the Golden Gun"...yes you read it right) I have the Craig films but haven't seen either yet.
    Y'know, Negima WAS awesome...
    For the first 18 volumes.

    Casino Royale was actually pretty good, despite my misgivings about Craig.

    Quantum of Solace... wasn't.

    I mean, it REALLY wasn't.

    Save yourself the two hours, I wish I had. :/

    That sounds about right, but maybe i'd rank Brosnan and Craig above Timothy boring Dalton.

    And as much as Connery is THE Bond face, i loved Moore in the role. He was absolutely hilarious, not to mention charismatic.

    Yeah perhaps Pierce should go higher. Originally, I grew up with Pierce and I'd say he was my favourite, but as I got
    more into it, and began to enjoy Connery & Moore more and then liked Dalton loads after seeing him in different stuff.

    That's the trouble with lists, you have 6 awesome people to choose from
    (But Lazenby's easily last )
