I am a HUGE Bond fan!!

For me Mr. Connery is the one true Bond and always will be. He was cool, suave and well yes very handsome smile.gif I like the other guys too... well expect maybe Lazanby... but they all had there niche. Daniel Craig is certainly more true to what Fleming wrote, and has done a great job, but for me it will be very hard to top Connery.

If the older bond movies were done today they'd have all the action blah blah as the newer movies but you have to take them for what they are imo (although for back in the day they were pretty action packed). Bond is a suave, charismatic spy with a bit of a playboy persona. He has lots of gadgets, wacky criminal masterminds and interesting ways to kill them. He was to kill his enemies and charm the ladies if need be (which apparently was all the time smile.gif ) all for the good of England and the world. He sorta had a cooler head and attitude and didn't seem so serious, like it was no biggy what he was doing. The newer Bond's and Bond movies have basically the same model but are a little more serious and intense. Plus they can get away with a lot more special effects, action, sex etc due to A) Budget - Today's budgets are crazy compared to what they had in the 60's70's and 80's. even with inflation I don't think they come close B ) censorship back then was pretty intense. You'd never be able to put what you can on film today. Even the Bond movies back in the day were considered pretty racy and were subject to huge penalties because of it. By todays standards they were pretty mild but back then people had never seen such things... thus way Eursela Andres's bikini scene was so scandalous. C) technology - of course the newer movies are gonna keep with the times or try to show more advanced weaponry etc. and D) we as an audience expect bigger and better each time out.

But back to Skyfall.... looks like it will be a great movie. The promo is already better than Quantum of Solace and Javier Bardem as a Bond bady is brilliant. Whenever he has crazy hair he becomes even creepier LOL!! Also like the addition of Ralph Finnes. Ill be seeing it for sure.


Can't really argue with any of that.. well said smile.gif

I loved Olga Kurylenko Quantum Of Solace too, Casino Royale with the bottomless chair scene...(Ouch, but still hilarious the way Craig acts it out as typical cocky bond! smile.gif )

Me too... and me too ! smile.gif
