We can all agree that Moonraker was the single worst thing to ever happen to James Bond, right?
I second that!
Ah, that's right, I couldn't remember if that show was still going on when Dalton took over.
They should have locked the franchise after his turn as Bond. Magic.
You talk about others being ignorant and stupid. Shut up.

Well it is fiction...
"Bond's parents are named as Andrew Bond, a Scotsman, and Monique Delacroix from Canton de Vaud in Switzerland (these nationalities had previously been established in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service"). Bond's Scottish heritage was partly a result of Fleming being impressed with Sean Connery's screen portrayal of his character"
So he didn't become scottish until after a scot played him in the movies. But I think most of the viewing audience expect 007 to be british.
Hes a terrible james bond. Hes an emo james bond. Always dark and gloomy

No, that would be the first "unofficial" Casino Royale film...Train wreck in every way imaginable.

Thank you for keeping me up until 2 am watching that...
Good movie though
Have you read this thread? That's pretty much how Ian Fleming wrote the character. Bond is not supposed to be a happy go lucky womanizer.
Sienna kept me up too
Pierce Brosnan was prettier.
Skyfall would've been better with Efron.
Or MATT DAMON!
Post as if your wife was sitting on my lap.
That is pretty high praise....
It is but I just think he really nails the very essence of the character that Ian Fleming created.

And yet, accurate.
Thank you, Denicos.
He is a great James Bond. It really isn't an argument for me over who the top 2 Bonds are (Connery and Craig). If Craig puts in 2 more performances on the Casino Royale/Skyfall level (not so much QOS), he could be argued as the best ever.
Fleming was initially against casting Connery but Fleming's girlfriend convinced him Connery would work. Fleming ended up loving Connery in Dr. No and then wrote a half-Scottish, half Swiss heritage for him in subsequent Bond novels.
Really looking forward to Skyfall. I had given up on the franchise until I saw the 60 Minutes piece on the Bond films. Watched Casino Royale the same night and loved it. Numerous people have told me to not bother with Quantum of Solace.
not completely, lets be fair here. Fleming's Bond was described as 6 foot, dark hair, and likened to Hoagy Carmichael ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoagy_Carmichael ) he wasn't described as 5'10 with a blonde crew cut. Not only that but daniel craig has had his share of goofy quips and one liners to women. And connery had plenty flemingeque scenes. Having said I still put craig at #2.
The original (and still the best) Bond.

Good to hear. Been a big Bond fan since the beginning of the series. Read the books as a young teen. Never thought anyone could come close to Connery as Bond but Craig won me over with Casino Royale. I hope he does at least a couple more though I know he's already getting a bit weary of the character and stereotype...just as Connery did. But $$$$$ has a way of changing your mind...lol. Never say never Daniel!
I saw Skyfall on Monday, and liked it. But I thought it was the weakest out of the three Daniel Craig Bond movies (but I am weird and loved Quantum of Solace).
I think anyone who is a big Bond fan will love all of the tributes/homages they make to old bond movies. But it felt forced at times, and the "climax" of the movie felt a little too...ridiculous for me to buy into.
Loved Javier as the villain, his performance was well done. Ralph Fines was also very good. The new Q...not so much...
It made me want to see another Bond movie asap. Whoever the writers are on these films are doing a damn good job.
