Bond, James Bond

Any James Bond Fans here?

 

 

 

I watched Dr.No a bit ago and it still holds up really well.

 

 

 

For those Bond fans do you prefer The pre Craig era films or the ones with Daniel Craig?

 

 

 

I personally like both.

Ok, I've got ALL the movies, including the original Casino Royale, and I have to say that to me, the original, and true Bond, is Sean Connery.

 

He will always remain the best, but up to recently, I liked Pierce Brosnan as a close second, until I saw Daniel Craig, that is.

 

Yes, the first time I heard his name and looked at him, I went "Fuck, not another George Lazenby!", but then I saw Casino Royale (the remake)...

 

He was great, rough, edgy, and yet roguishly charming, just like Connery, while succeeding in NOT being a Connery clone...

 

And while Quantum of Solace disappointed me a bit by its story, Craig still cemented his position as the second best Bond, very, very close behind Connery.

 

 

 

My preferred actors in the Bond role, in order (best to worst):

 

-Sean Connery;

 

-Daniel Craig;

 

-Pierce Brosnan;

 

-Timothy Dalton;

 

-Roger Moore;

 

-George Lazenby

I agree with the top part of your list:-

 

 

 

-Sean Connery;

 

-Daniel Craig;

 

-Pierce Brosnan;

 

 

 

 

 

However i cannot decide who sucked the most out of the bottom 3 cos every time i decide i remember a new even suckier bit another one of them did.

 

 

 

I suppose id go with this order (least sucky at the top) due to lazenby only having one film to suck in, dalton had 2 he sucked in and moore had the most films to suck in with 7.

Yeah but Lazenby sucked Donkey balls in his, while Dalton and Moore were "less sucky" enough for fans and the producers to endure more then 1 movie with them in it... w00t.gif

The only Bond movies I've seen are ones with either Connery or Craig, so I have no idea how bad Lazenby, Dalton, and Moore sucked, or how Brosnan did.

Brosnan was actually pretty good, at least better then the other three.

 

I thought Moore wasn't a true gritty Secret Service man, he was too "foppish", he looked and acted like a dandy.

I enjoyed Brosnan's bond a lot he had the attitude down and he was also cold blooded enough when the situations required, as characterisations go i thought he portrayed a very good and enjoyable bond.....getting rid of some of the more stupid gadgets helped.

 

 

 

You are right about Moore, while it was obvious Brosnan and Connery had mearly a veneer of the upper class british attitude covering a tough and harsh killer when they played their roles Moore did not have that.

 

 

 

Moore was in reality a bit of a "foppish" dandy and did have a private school background so instead of looking like a rough and ready government killer posing as a well educated bit of a player he came off as a well educated bit of a player trying to look like a rough and ready government killer....and failed.
