Hi All


Early Bond films have always been a passion of mine. They just look so good. They have influenced many of my favourite things. The car I most desire is still the 65' Aston Martin DB5 (in silver of course). Ejector seat optional. I'm still looking for a Ursula Andress of my own. I always want to have that quick comeback, that snappy answer, that dry humour that try as I may, cannot perfect. And I guess I still don't look quite as distinguished as Sean Connery, but I'm trying.
So who is your favourite Bond, which film, what scene?

My fave is Goldfinger. And what a song. We do a instrumental version of it in my band.
Gert Frobe, who played Auric Goldfinger, could not speak english. They had to dub his lines later. I just found this out recently. I always thought there was something odd in his delivery.
My fav banter in of all the Bond flicks (I used to have this on my answering machine) is when Bond is captured and is laid out on a slab of gold and the laser is inching its way along to his ........

Bond: (very nervous) "Do you expect me to talk, Goldfinger?"
Goldfinger: (with a laugh) "No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die !!!"

Classic stuff


cheers

I am sort of excited to see Daniel Craig in the new Casino Royale.
He has that very dangerous sort of look going on. Albeit a fair haired dangerous. He was quite meanacing in Munich and very Bond like in parts of Layer Cake.
I am also diggin' the fact that they are going back to the roots. No 00 license, no gadgets. Sort of like Dr. No or From Russia with Love.

cheers

But as you said, EVIL-temptress. And I think that is another catagory. I was saving another poll of sorts for Bond Villains. Which would not only include the aforementioned Helga Brandt but other dangerous Babes like Sophie Marceau (Elektra King. Oh my, my) that Bond would bed then dispose of.
So without further ado,.......The Best Bond Villains ????

hey far, I hope you got that off a website somewhere and you didn't sit there for half an hour typing up that list.

Oh no, that was just off the top of my head. Plus I can type 2500 words a minute. :D

Exactly what I have always though. However most of the Bond fans have most likely never even seen the cover of a Bond novel, let alone read one.

I haven't read a James Bond novel since I was in public school. Makes want to read one now.....Maybe Casino Royale since it's on it's way this summer..

I purchased the box sets of the Bond films a few weeks ago. I watched Licence To Kill for the first time, my God was that a bad movie. The script, the acting, the whole thing. Just awful. I just watched On Her Majesty's Secret Service for the first time in years. That was actually not a bad movie. Lazenby may have been a good Bond if he had time to develop the character a little more.

Bad movie???? My son and I watched "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "Casino Royale" back to back during spring break. Oh My God that "Spy" movie sucked on every level. "Casino Royale" is one of the best if not...dare I say....THE best bond flick. Daniel Craig is the only actor since Connery to give that role a depth and a charisma that suits the character Ian Fleming wrote. As a matter of fact, having read Casino Royale just prior to seeing the movie when it was released, it is the ONLY Bond movie to follow the book and character development almost to a tee.
My son who is 10, is a huge Bond fan. Of all the eras he likes them all. But he LOVES Daniel Craig. He is his fav by far.
I can't wait for the next one.
By the way Daniel Craig is shooting a small independent flick this summer in Toronto. I hoping I know some of the crew so I can take my son to meet him.

I think the Roger Moore era of Bond was the best.............
but with the new computer technology as evidenced on the new Casino Royale.....were in for some great stunts and spy tools for the next Bond features.

Check out the special features DVD. There was NO green screen used on that movie. All those stunts on the cranes and the running segment at the start of the film were real with some safety lines that they removed in post.
As a matter of fact that car wreck that I thought was a model, was real.World record for rolling a car.
They did a lot of the effects in camera. I guess thats why it looks so good.
