James Bond

  1. Bond Girl: Re-Watching and Re-Evaluating On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

    In On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Lazenby manages to humanize James Bond and make him a character worth empathizing with. Aside from a few incidences of violence towards women and racism, I found a lot to like about the film and Lazenby's Bond.

  2. Bond Girl: Re-Watching and Re-Evaluating You Only Live Twice

    You Only Live Twice is one of those Bond movies that I wound up liking more that I felt like I should. The return to Sean Connery is marked by familiar annoying tropes and I was plenty steamed as I livetweeted my experience watching the film on Thursday, but I still came away from it with some seriously positive feelings.

  3. Bond Girl: Re-Watching and Re-Evaluating Casino Royale (1967)


    I regret bad-mouthing Sean Connery's Bond.

  4. Bond Girl: Re-Watching and Re-Evaluating Thunderball

    I kind of had to like Thunderball. Come on! It combines (and quite possibly, may have created) several of my favorite supervillain tropes. You have the shark tank, the cadre of evil villains, and their incompetent henchmen making their plans for world domination just a little more difficult. It's over the top in several places and boring in others, but I've got to say that getting into the movie was super easy.

  5. Bond Girl: Re-Watching and Re-Evaluating Goldfinger

    With the James Bond film franchise passing its fiftieth anniversary, there's no doubt that the franchise has its fair share of iconic moments, images, lines and characters - and none are more so than those from Goldfinger.

  6. Bond Girl: Re-Watching and Re-Evaluating From Russia With Love

    SPECTRE status.

    It only took five minutes in my very first rewatch to make me uncomfortable and that's important, because from those five minutes on, I wasn’t able to enjoy the film the way I wanted to. I watched Dr. No about eight times before I got sick of it. From Russia with Love took half as many rewatches.

  7. Idris Elba Re-Schedules the Apocalypse, Says Any Chance He Had of Playing James Bond is Gone

    Fancasting never dies.

    At the world premiere of his new movie Mandela, My Dad and Me on Tuesday, Idris Elba dashed the hopes that he'll eventually take over the role of 007: "Honestly, it’s a rumor that’s really starting to eat itself. If there was ever any chance of me getting Bond, it’s gone."

  10. Here Are All the Netflix Titles We’re Gaining and Losing Come February

    Say goodbye to this face.

    Let's keep things in perspective here: sure, Black Adder is going the way of Battlestar Galactica and leaving Netflix Streaming, but that's way better than losing most of the BBC catalog, right? We'll meet again, Rowan Atkinson. We'll meet again.

  15. Place Your Bets! Folks Are Already Betting on Next Actor to Play James Bond

    What are the odds of them casting Harrison Ford? That's right. 3,720 to 1.

    Relax, Daniel Craig fans. You haven't missed something. Despite some off-again/on-again rumors that Craig is leaving the franchise, it doesn't look like he's going anywhere for at least two more movies. He's got to go sometime, though, right? In fact, betting's already open on who will fill his tuxedo when he does.

  17. Man Building Aston Martin via 3D Printer, Rest of Us Feeling Inadequate

    Coming up: Specifically watered-down martini, seductive femme fatale, or exploding pen?

    There are more or less two kinds of people in the world: People whose first impulse upon buying a 3D printer is to build James Bond's car, and everyone else. New Zealand resident and programmer Ivan Sentch? Yeah, he's the first kind.

  20. Honest Trailer for Skyfall Makes a Ton of Good Points

    I'm willing to admit that there's definitely some strange stuff going on in the latest James Bond film, Skyfall. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that there are a goodly number of oddities. The movie was still grand to watch, if only because Judi Dench is phenomenal. Still, Screen Junkies' latest Honest Trailer for the film is definitely firing on all cylinders and makes a bunch of fair points about Skyfall's overwhelming reliance on convenient plot developments.
