James Bond Movies

Recommended Posts

"Moonraker" is my favorite James Bond film because it's such campy fun. I got a kick out of Jaws and Roger Moore's throwaway lines.

I usually prefer the "bad" Bond girls because they're more interesting and entertaining characters. I'm a straight female so "hotness" isn't the deciding factor for me. It's a three-way tie between May Day from "A View to a Kill", Xenia Ontopp from "Goldeneye" and Eva Green's character from "Casino Royale". The first two were such great, kick-butt villainesses. In "Casino Royale" Eva Green was very moving as a basically decent woman caught between a rock and a hard place.

Sean Bean's character, "Alex" from Goldeneye is my favorite Bond villain. The man is just hot, even when he's playing a vindictive psychopath.

"Diamonds are Forever" sung by the legendary Shirley Bassey is my favorite Bond film theme song. The lyrics say it all..."Diamonds are forever; sparkling around my little finger. Unlike men they always linger. Men are mere mortals not worth going to your grave for." Girlfriend had her priorities straight. <grin>

I do agree Sean Connery defined James Bond the best and Roger Moore comes in second

Moore comes off as snooty or prissy to me. He reminds me of the guy who played Lawrence of Arabia. Connery is just so believable as a ex military guy serving as a special agent.

I just can't get into the Daniel Craig Bond becuase he is just way too short for the character. I think Sean Connery was by far the best Bond of all time. And I never understood picking Roger Moore or Pierce Brosnahan as they just aren't convincing as being tough guys. I would have loved to have seen Liam Neeson as Bond.

I think Connery played the part well, he drank, he smoked and could kill without hesitation. I do think the first three films were very good.

Bump...thanks Reg! ;)

Nice to know somebody knows how to use the search function. You guys are too wise for this forum, haha. :P

Connery. Sean Connery. There is none better.

Roger Moore and the others all have their own qualities that they bring to the Bond character, but are often outweighed by the negatives they bring as well. As noted before, Moore and Brosnan are a tad too "posh". Craig I'm on the fence about...I like his ruggedness but sometimes he's too brooding.

The one I've grown more fonder of over time is George Lazenby's Bond. "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" is a ripping good Bond film...one of the best. Alas, he only made one Bond movie.

I'm a casual Bond fan -- I've seen most of the Bond films. My favorite Bond is Roger Moore. Daniel Craig is a close second. My favorite soundtracks are from Octopussy and Live and Let Die.

You always hear movie buffs say, "You have to see The Godfather." You know what, I never saw that movie, and now, I don't even want to see it. That's like saying, "You have to be a Vietnam vet." Here's my only answer, "You must see a James Bond movie. Which one? It doesn't matter! This ain't AT&T, it's just entertainment.

My favorite Bond movie will always be "Thunderball".  Saw it at the show when I was 7, and the I thought the underwater scenes were just awesome.  So much of that was new technology at the time.  Also have a thing for "Live and Let Die", because it's just so over-the-top campy and goofy.  The opening car scene on the highway with the dart in the side mirror....every car on the road in that scene is either a 73 Impala or Cadillac....like 12 of them !  Was it too much to go to the local used car lot to get some proper ghetto cruisers ?  Mr. Big....Jane Seymour....Harlem....New Orleans....voodoo....the song itself....still stupidly delicious to me after all these years, and pretty much the only Roger Moore Bond movie I like, as things just got goofier after that.

"You Only Live Twice" is a bummer (I'm turning Japanese....not !), and "Diamonds are Forever" I can watch anytime.

My Top Three Bond Movies"

1.  Casino Royale" - Eva Green is now my favorite "Bond girl".

2.  "Diamonds are Forever" - Sean Connery and a bikini clad Jill St. John, what's not to like?

3.)  "Live and Let Die" - Agree, so campy and stereo-typed that it's just funny to watch!

You mean "Thunderball - 80s version"?

It wasn't an official film. I think it came out the same time as Octopussy - that was the official Bond film at the time.

Yep, I know, I was being cheeky. I am not a fan of that movie as Thunderball was perfect in 1965, the 83' version was nowhere near as good and Connery simply did the film as a fuck you to Broccoli. I like Connery as an actor but as a guy he is a bit of an arrogant prick.

:lol:

Well said - I was confused because I was sure that you did know. You are very knowledgable with films in general.

Yes, Connery, like many creative people, is "complicated" and not always cuddly. I totally agree about the original "Thunderball", my personal favorite by quite a distance. The underwater fight scene at the end STILL blows my mind - that was so complex I bet it almost required choreography! :lol:
