I voted Pierce. Something about him...he's got that devilish kind of look. I love all of his movies. I'm a huge fan of them all. I don't understand why they picked Danil Craig to be the next Bond. I'm not really looking forward to seeing the next bond movie...
I am, probably just because I want to see the new blonde bond screw up.:D

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 ????

i have a lot to say about the james bond films, all of it good.

my favourite bond is connery, followed by brosnan, dalton and moore tied for second, and lazenby a distant third.

my favourite bond movie is you only live twice, with from russia with love, tomorrow never dies, for your eyes only, and the living daylights rounding out my top 5. the world is not enough was also excellent.

my least favourite bond movies are live and let die, octopussy, lisence to kill, die another day (would have been great in the roger moore era though), and a view to a kill (although christopher walken as the villian? brilliant).

my favourite bond theme song is, by a fair margin, live and let die. but i'm a huge beatles/macca fan, so i'm quite biased. the themes from the connery era were eexcellent, and "goldeneye" gets points for being written by bono and the edge.

daniel craig will be a good bond. he's a talented actor, and given the state of the spy genre today (24, jason bourne, even alias), the bond of the next decade has to be grittier and less reliant on gadgets. i think daniel craig can supply that grit. i would have preferred clive owen, however.

I actually prefer the Destroyer series to the Bond Series, but they only made one Destroyer into a movie. Thats why I like Connery the best, as he could easily do both roles, whereas the others would have difficulty pulling off the Remo character................

my feeling is that brosnan was sort of a connery/moore (at his peak) hybrid with modern filmmaking techniques. timothy dalton was closer to the literary bond than connery, moore, or even lazenby.

had connery been the star of OHMSS, it wouldn't have become the "forgotten" bond movie. it's probably one of the better films plot-wise, and probably the most important in terms of the development of the bond character

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.

Live and Let Die

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

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.


Cheers
Pete
