The first Bond film I saw in the theater was Goldfinger. IIRC it played with McHale's Navy. It was a good day at the theater. I was ten years old.

I still like most of them. I realized over the last few years while having them on in the background is how much of the films were rear projection screens. It was a lot.

Good on her for keeping the franchise going. Some of them were a bit off (lookin' at you Golden Gun) but mostly fun and enjoyable.

In Latin, her name means "Broccoli of the Barbarians".

Carla Cauliflower, on the other hand, is simply insufferable.

See, my thing is, I've always thought it was dumb that every single Moore film had a theme:
Blaxploitation Bond
Kung Fu Bond
Bond on the Ocean
BOND...IN...SPAAAACE
Greek Odyssey Bond
Bollywood Bond
Yuppie Bond

And the less imposing the theme was, the better of a film it was (hence TSWLM and FYEO being his two best films). They're also hurt by him going from 45 in LALD to 57 in AVTAK. Hell, I'm the age he was in the first one and I can't see being up to doing what he did in 12 years.

Should we really take anyone with a vegetable as a last name seriously? How about Pat Potato?

I'd watch a Bond movie written by Carrot Top.  Q is played by Gallagher and demonstrates everything on watermelons.

My dad was a 007 fan so I grew up watching.  When I got old enough to read and laugh at the word Broccoli on the screen, my dad would insist the name was pronounced bruh-COH-lee.

This might just sum up everything that's wrong with Hollywood today.

But Broccoli has remained steadfast in keeping the property from becoming diluted by TV series and film spinoffs.

"Sure, there are other main characters like M and Q and all that," says Broccoli with a laugh as she settles into a plush couch in her London home. "But we haven't really wanted to make a Bond film without Bond. It would be like making Hamlet without Hamlet."


There's a problem here.  I would love to see Ana de Armas' character from No Time to Die in her own stand alone movie, maybe even with Lashana Lynch tagging along.  Bond couldn't be in such a film for reasons that would be spoilers for No Time to Die.

I'm 56 and where I would suffer is fistfights and foot chases for sure. General fitness wise I feel about the same as 45, just slower.

Look, an evolution denier! Or is the correct word denialist? Declaimer? Denunciater, disclaimer, defamer?  Anti-evolutionist?
