PIP_the_TROLL: This is the first of the Daniel Craig films I'm actually looking forward to.

*now* he's starting to look like James Bond. Now he's less of a thug and more of a super spy.


I enjoyed the moment there when the backhoe rips the end of the train off and he flips into the car, lands on his feet and immediately adjusts his sleeve like nothing happened.


gshepnyc: BruceLee1255: So my question for all the Farkers: Is it pretty much agreed that "James Bond" is a codename for 007, and not necessarily the guy's real name?

This was not Fleming's idea about it, but they've laid tiny hints that this is the case for the current series.


I thought he was a Time Lord?


Andrew Wiggin: entropic_existence: The_Cisco_Kid: Didn't know what "Skyfall" was referring to just by the headline, but that does sound interesting after skimming the article. I should probably start with the first Daniel Craig Bond film though if I ever do watch his version of the character. He was good in Cowboys and Aliens, never have seen him in anything that I can recall at least where he has a British Accent.

Watch Layer Cake, it's widely regarded as the movie that got him a shot at the role in the first place. Similar to a Guy Ritchie Brit-Crime movie like Lock, Stock in lots of ways. Great cast to boot.

goddamn that was a good movie


Thirded.


And no discussion of the various Bond actors is complete without this:

Rwa2play: Hebalo: midpoint: I am serious!

The special effects are 40 years old and were done before the shuttle even launched for real.

The approach to the space station and the reveal out of the darkness with the music is a classic Bond moment.

Also, Moonraker has a great script - especially Drax.


I've been watching all the films in order this summer. The Moore era has been farking painful. Moonraker is almost unwatchable.

Yeah, pretty much. Maybe his only redeeming one was "The Spy Who Loved Me."

Maybe.


Love moore, but alot of the good of "The spy who loved me" was Barbara Bach's fine ass

That was also the running joke in the original Casino Royale

soopey: Don't forget the cheeky slapstick comedy of The Man with the Golden Gun.


Diamonds are Forever showed a bit more cheek than usual.

Moonraker has, IMHO, one of the very best pre-title action sequences in the Bond films (the free-fall fistfight over possession of a parachute). Unfortunately, the movie gets progressively worse from there -- with some of the lowest moments in the entire Bond series (chief among them: the pigeon doing a 'double-take' during the Venice chase scene).

I have a similar opinion of Die Another Day ... the pre-title sequence, and the first 30 minutes or so, is among the finest of Pierce Brosnan's turn as James Bond. But -- beginning with the fencing competition -- the movie gets progressively more ludicrous with each scene, dipping even below Moonraker-badness, on occasion (Bond windsurfing on an iceburg-tsunami, the villain's 'powerglove, etc).

Decillion: Roger Moore = Best Bond.

That is all.


Pffft. Everyone knows that David Niven was the Best Bond of All TimeTM.
