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.

sean is Bond...then the Saint himself...Moore...and now Craig...Brosnon started off good, but his last films blew more chunks than a teeny bopper getting drunk the first time and eating a a$$ load of pasta...

no one can top Sean...

and i'm actually sad that they"ve cancelled the new bond film...

Bond: (very nervous) "Do you expect me to talk, Goldfinger?"
Goldfinger: (with a laugh) "No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die !!!"
That's a great quote and one of the most copied other than "Bond, James Bond" and "Shaken, not stirred"-And much more menacing...

I voted Connery, but Peter Sellers is still the best actor ever to play Bond............
I keep telling people Peter Sellers was my favorite Bond. Most of them don't know about the unoffical older Casino Royale. Truly an oddball movie.

But of the official Bond movies--my favorite is From Russia With Love.
That Rosa Klebb is scary...

When I was 12, Goldfinger had just come out. That summer, my dad took me to an open house in the Engineering faculty at Carleton. One of the things I saw that summer was my first laser beam. The grad student who was demonsrating it defocussed it, let me wave my hand in front of it, and then after I moved my hand safely out of the way, he refocussed it and zapped a hole through a couple of razor blades or something like that.

I was transfixed. Largely because it was something I had seen in a Bond movie right there in front of me.

Several months after that,I went with a friend to see a double bill of Dr. No and From Russia With Love in a theatre that specialized in second runs. The theatre was jam packed and the only seats we could get were in the second row, way over to the side, practically near the wall. EVERYTHING in the movie seemed to go up hill.

As much as I like Connery, both Brosnan and Craig do a passable job. Jason Statham might have been a pretty decent bond too, although he'd have had to lose the signature stubble.

That's why she was scary.
If you think the knife was scary - you should hear her sing! Lotte Lenya was regarded as one of the best interpreters of her husbands songs, but her time and pitch can take a bit of getting used to.

Oh, and for those who don't know her husband, he was none other than Kurt Weill, composer of the Threepenny Opera. In other words, the guy who wrote "Mack the Knife".

I've heard her sing--I have a song by her on a tape somewhere.

I'll have to sort through all my old cassettes to find it.

the Bond with Sophie Marceaux and Denise Richards...although the two of them are intensely hot...did nothing for me, but make me hate that era of Bond...especially with the Christmas comes twice this year joke...
