Favourite James Bond Movie
« on: November 26, 2006, 06:55:08 AM »
   I viewed the new James Bond movie trailer for Casino Royale, the other day. looks pretty good for the 20th film in the James Bond series.
 Interesting to find out your favourite James Bond and Films.
Well, I like Sean Connery and all of his movies from Doctor No to Diamonds are Forever, my favourites being Goldfinger and You only Live Twice.  :)  ;)

'From Russia With Love' is my favourite - Connery was the best bond (not just because he has the same birthday as me! ;)). Of the modern ones, 'Goldeneye' and 'The World Is Not Enough' were very good too.

My favorite Bond(altough I like them all :)) is The World is Not Enough. This is my opinion without seeing  Cassino Royale, maybe it's better than that. I'll see it on next monday(can't wait for that ::))

I liked Roger Moore the best! He was very good and so likeable. I love "Octopussy" and "The spy who loved me" :)

  Casino Royale opens here on the 7th December in Sydney. I read that it is doing well at the box office in the United Kingdom. it is based more  on Jame's  Bond early life, there is no Q this time and who does the opening song of the film.  :)  ;)

I don't know who does the song, but apparently it's not very good. Craig is meant to be great though, some people even say he's the closest to Ian Fleming's character than any other actor. He seems more the grim, Timothy Dalton type than the witty, urbane Brosnan . . . I can't wait to see it!  :)

My favorite is On Her Majesty's Secret Service - only because the movie stars Dame Diana Rigg - the only Bond actress hired because she could act ... and the only Bond actress to be paid more than the actor playing Bond.

Paul McCartney's (sp?) 'Live and Let Die' is good too.  :)

Interesting! That's a good bit of trivia! I love the Man with the golden gun theme by Lulu, great tune.

I've heard Casino Royale is excellent! What do people think of David Craig?? Ok, he's got a good body ;D but I don't think he's cut out for it! Hoipefully I will be proved wrong when I watch it! :)

That is the only Bond film I actually want to see. Supposedly, even though George Lazenby was only used once, it was the best film -as a film-of all the Bond movies. I saw part of a special awhile back and they said that Diana Rigg was the only woman who could capture Bond's heart so that he would marry her. In fact it is the only instance where the character has gotten married.

My favourite is Die Another Day with Pierce Brosnan ::). IMO, he and Sean Connery are the best Bonds!!!

I'm a huge James Bond fan...legacy of years of watching James Bond films with my daddy.  :)

My favourite film is Live and Let Die, but I also very much enjoy Goldfinger and Octopooshy.

I am yet to see Casino Royale though.  My friend saw it and she's as big a JB fan as me.  She LOVED it, so I am expecting good things, though Daniel Craig doesn't really float my boat.

My favourite Bond song is definitely Goldeneye- Shirley Bassey is amazing! But Live and Let Die is great too.

  My favourite Bond villian would have to be Auric Goldfinger played by the German actor Gert Frobe, because Frobe spoke English with a thick accent , his voice was dubbed by Michael Collins.
Cast to play Oddjob,Goldfinger's mute Korean manservant, was Harold Sakata, the Japanese - American was  a former Olympic weightlifter and professional wrestler

I like "Live and Let die" (think its called that) with Roger Moore as Bond and Jane Seymour as the leading lady and all that voodoo :)
