Like any series it has it’s ups and downs. I consider the eighties a serious down for Bond. In any case, just to get it out there, Brosnan is my favorite Bond even though I have much respect for the classic Connery. Brosnan is just the most playful Bond which why I think is why I have so much fun with his Bond films opposed to the others (At least his first two anyway). Craig is pretty decent, I don’t think Dalton’s as bad as most people do and I’m not a big Moore fan, even though I’m a big fan of a lot of the films he’s in. Not that he was all so horrible but I don’t think Broccoli ever intended Lazenby to remain as James Bond. … Read more

Like any series it has it’s ups and downs. I consider the eighties a serious down for Bond. In any case, just to get it out there, Brosnan is my favorite Bond even though I have much respect for the classic Connery.

Not that he was all so horrible but I don’t think Broccoli ever intended Lazenby to remain as James Bond. Rather, I think he was just brought in as a sub because Connery didn’t want his last Bond film to be known as the one where Bond goes renegade and gets married only to leave us with the down note of his bride murdered. My favorite Bond girl is Akiko Wakabayashi from You Only Live Twice because I’m a sucker for Japanese women and my favorite bad guy is Christopher Walken from A View To A Kill. “View” isn’t a particularly great Bond but I find it hard to compare the other villains to someone as bad-ass as Walken. I’m also a big fan of Odd-Job, Nick-Nack, Goldfinger, Scaramanga, Kananga and of course Baron Samdi but come on, it’s fucking Chris.
