With only days to go before the much awaited premier of James Bond’s, Skyfall, it seems the UK has gone into Bond frenzy. I passed Harrods yesterday, and the whole window was devoted to 007. It was only when I saw this video this morning that I realised just how far they had taken their obsession.
And I don’t need any excuse to write about a handsome man with a six pack!
But what is it about James Bond that makes men want to be him, and women yearn to have his babies? Okay, I know damn well why women chase their fantasy – I still think if Daniel Craig met me before Rachel Weisz, I’d be Mrs Bond…. We do, after all, have the same colour hair
As for the men’s reason? Who cares. As long as they keep churning out the movies, the female population will stay happy.
Now, down to business. The best Bond.
Connery was the first Bond way back in the 60′s with six movies under his belt.
I found him arrogant and although I am a massive Connery fan, I don’t like him as Bond.
George Lazenby made one movie, and I’ve never seen it.
Was it any good?
Roger Moore was the first James Bond I liked.
He made contributed to seven movies in the franchise and added a little humour
character. This was the first time I saw Bond showing a little emotion.
Hmm. Timothy Dalton made two appearances as Bond. I think I saw bits of one.
To his credit, some do say he was the best.
Pierce Brosnan made four movies and was by far my favourite. I went into mourning when film bosses announced he would not return for a fifth.
For me, he was the first Bond to show the character was actually capable of love, kindness and emotion.
When Daniel Craig was announced as the new Bond, I refused to watch any more 007 films.
Fifteen minutes into Casino Royale, I was in love and had found my new favourite Bond.
Craig’s third Bond film is about to be released…. I’m as happy as a pig in mud.
As for the worse Bond movie moments, check out my friend, Lewis Malka, over on ‘Top Left Design’s’ blog. Lewis is definitely a James Bond fan who has taken things way too far.
Now, who do you reckon would still be standing if there was a Battle of the Bonds?
So, who is your favourite James Bond? And why? Also, do you have a best and worse moment in a Bond movie?
