Subject: 007

Written By: Tia on 11/29/06 at 7:31 pm

There's no shortage of em so you can vote for up to six. I'm not sure there's more than six i've REALLY liked.

the two on the bottom are out of chronological order because they weren't produced by albert broccoli and so aren't "officially" bond films -- thus i had to get them from a different list.

i'm also curious which ones you haven't seen yet. i haven't seen, or don't recall seeing


From Russia with Love (1963) - 0 (0%)
On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) - 0 (0%)
The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) - 0 (0%)
Licence to Kill (1989) - 0 (0%)
Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) - 0 (0%)
The World Is Not Enough (1999) - 0 (0%)
Die Another Day (2002) - 0 (0%)
Casino Royale (1967) - 0 (0%)

i know i saw ONE of those 90s ones besides goldeneye (which i quite liked) -- which was the one with the icy underground lair? but pierce brosnan and timothy whatshishay never grabbed me as bonds so i kinda fell off the wagon in the 90s. i couldn't get over how good the new one is though.

and the ones with the best theme songs are definitely

Goldfinger (1964) - 1 (25%)
Live and Let Die (1973) - 1 (25%)
The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) - 0 (0%)

For Your Eyes Only
Octopussy
A View to A Kill
The Living Daylights
GoldenEye
The World is Not Enough

Honourable mention to Moonraker ... it begins as a spy film, and ends up like Star Wars.  How awesome is that! Plus, that scene where Jaws bites the suspending cable is a classic LOL

my new favorite:

"do i look like i give a damn?"

Subject: Re: 007

Written By: Chris MegatronTHX on 12/01/06 at 7:47 pm

Here's my six:

Goldfinger
Dr. No
For Your Eyes Only
Goldeneye
License to Kill
The  World is Not Enough


Pierce Brosnan gets ragged on for being a lean pretty boy, but I liked him and all his flicks except Tomorrow Never Dies.  That one was too bland for me.

I thought the ones with the best opening credit songs were:

License to Kill, A View to a Kill, and The Living Daylights.

Subject: Re: 007

Written By: HawkTheSlayer on 12/05/06 at 3:37 pm

My personal picks include:

The Man With The Golden Gun- Christopher Lee!!!!!
Goldfinger- Let's face it...it was arguably the most classic of 'em all.
The Living Daylights- Timothy Dalton is the ONLY "James Bond" who did all of his own stunts.
License To Kill- Same reason.
Never Say Never Again- This brought back the "Classic" Bond, Sir Sean Connery.
Casino Royale (The Original)- Four words: Peter Sellers. Orson Welles.

if you watch the whole thing, right through the end credits, they say, "bond will be back." again! and i'm sorta torn on it. because daniel craig is pretty much a kickass bond, but at the same time, i'm thinking that movie would have been such a perfect poetic ending to a series that's already gone on so long. you know? and if they keep making more i worry it'll sink back into kitsch again.

I feel the producers will start remaking the Bond films starting with Dr No, now that the start of James bond has began.

Aston-Martin DB-5

Or do you prefer the newer models.

Note: The Aston Martin car used in the early JB movies is said to now reside @ The Smoky Mountain Car Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Anyone live down there or know if that's true ?  ???

on the moonraker extras you find out that jaws was originally a bad guy -- he's in spy who loved me, and i think maybe man with the golden gun too? and he got so much fan mail from kids who loved him and wanted him to be a good guy that they decided to make him convert and become a good guy in moonraker.

fun factoid.

Actually, in "The Man With the Golden Gun", that was Caramanga, the world's greatest assassin, played by Christopher Lee. His servant, the short person who stowed away in the suitcase was none other than Herve Villechaise, also known as "Tattoo", on "Fantasy Island".

you will find that Christopher Lee played Francisco Scaramanga in "The Man With the Golden Gun" not as stated.
