Aarrghhh! Had to post. Just couldn't help myself!
Bond better than Solo?! No WAY!!!
well, perhaps I will watch some Bond films at some stage, perhaps when I'm on my 3 month sabatical from the Indy Trilogy (August to November)
Oh BTW, a question for 00Kevin
Kev, seeing as you are a HUGE Bond fan, when you watch Last Crusade, is it strange seeing Sean Connery as Indy's dad, as you are probably used to seeing him as Bond? I'm just curious.
Originally posted by Kumba Definetly; Bond could kick Solo's @$$! Arg, those lucky bastards in Britain already have DAD! I think you should watch the movies in order, Attila. Some people may think Dr. No is boring, but it is a very good detective film, and has a very well written script. You should probably stay away from some of the Roger Moore Bond films, such as A View to a Kill, haha, I'm sure 00Kevin knows what I'm talking about! Oh, and Attila, is your cave located under Stonehenge?
No, it's in the mountain that Macchu Picchu is built upon...
Kumba, as much as I'm enjoying this, let's give it a rest. And before you make those sorts of comments again, I would suggest asking yourself if you've seen any great films that were made before 1962 - a year you no doubt know the significance of. I've haven't been living in a cave, my friend.

No significance?! HA! I'll let you know I know much about the world before 1962! You're just mad because you couldn't think of a clever way to get me back! AND, Bridge over the river kwai came out in the 50s, and it was a great film!
Kumba, my friend, I'm not mad. Now let's drop this before someone says something they regret. If you're trying to provoke me, it's not working.
And by the way, I didn't say that 1962 has no significance, but merely that you should know why it is significant...it's the year Dr. No was released. Furthermore, the Fifties are clearly before 1962, and a great number of wonderful films were made both before and after 1962.
I admit I may be somewhat behind the times, but I don't mind. The past is more pleasant than the present, in my mind, so I get most of my entertainment from it. Now, seeing as I have no more to say, this discussion is closed.
This may seem odd, irregualar, out of touch with movies in general, but Roger Moore is the best Bond. Nothing beats 60s cool Connery, but Moore has a way of carrying a action movie and making it fun, funny, witty, and hilerius. Theres exceptions no doubt, I think the closest Moore has ever come close to portraying a serious Bond was "for you eyes only", which is still very Moorish in itself.
And the Moore era had the coolest reoccuring villian (besides Oddjob), JAWS.
Alright alright, sorry mr. attila, I seemed to have lost myself in all of the confusion, with the war and everything. (hahaha, that's my excuse, although the war is not what it was in April, U.S. troops are still being attacked and killed).
Dalton is good, actually he brought 'to' his own Bond to the frachise that separated him and made him unique. I'll refraise what I said and say he's my least favorite. He was too dark and I couldn't see Bond that way(though thats Fleming's intention in the first place, a hard core Bond).
Connery and Moore brough a certain humour to their roles which I enjoyed more.
I love the finishes to both TLD and LTK though, the tanker chase especially which, incidently, is one of my favorite Bond chases.
Originally posted by swords Who's David Niven? There was George Lazenby...
David Niven was a great British actor, he's probably best remembered for Phileas Fogg in Around the World in 80 Days. He was also in a few of the Pink Panther movies w/ Peter Sellers, and some action pictures like 55 Days at Peking. Anyway, he was in Casino Royale, from the Ian Fleming novel, which is kind of a spoof of the other Bond stories, with Niven as an aging 007. Also the only one with Fleming's approval, or so I believe, and a truly all-star cast, with Niven, Peter Sellers, Woody Allen, Bill Holden, Deborah Kerr, Charles Boyer, Ursula Andress, John Huston, George Raft and Orson Welles.
Yeah, so did I. I rented it once and I stopped watching it because it was so boring and stupid. I think Timothy Dalton was a great Bond actor. I wish he could've done more Bond movies, but The Living Daylighs shall always be my favorite Bond film. Roger Moore had SOME good Bond movies, like FYEO and TSWLM. Octo***** was OK.

as for Casion royale: me too! I watched it on AMC and stopped about halfway through, was a terrible film
Timothy Dalton: indeed, a great bond, the serious ruthless bond..........he was more acurate to the Novels then the other bond........
moore: great bond!! he SAVED the bond franchaise with TSWLM!!! TSWLM is considered the 2nd best bond film, next to only goldfinger..................octo was also one of the biggest bonds ever!!!
This one was a very good entry, besides TND, this is my second favorite. Unlike TWINE, his previous outing, which had very dull action scenes(besides the boat chase, which was a highlight), this one ups the action to thrilling effect. The hovercraft chase was nicely done, the car chase was another nicely executed chase scene, although it does get a little too much on the pyro technics, it was very fast and thrilling.
I enjoyed the updated homage to Goldfinger, where lasers are threatening Halle Barry and Bond tries frantically to rescue her. The swordplay between Bond and the British millionair(forget his name), kept esculating to even more wicked action as an upgrade of weapons kept being applied to the fray. Speaking of swordplay, the climatic sword fight between Halle and the female villian had a great touch.
BTW, wasn't Barry supposed to get her own spin off movie, whatever happened to that?
Brosnan is my least favourate Bond. His films are all over the top and have boring storys. Sir Sean's films are the best up until YOLT. I wihs they had of kept Bond in the 50/60's era. He just looks out of place now.
Here is my Bond order
1. Sir Sean Connery
2. Roger Moore
3. George Lazenby
4. Timmothy Dalton
5. Pierce Brosnan
and heres my fav films
1. Dr No
4. Live and Let Die
