Re: James Bond Movies are Rubbish!

With a name like that I guess I'd be inspecting a lot of ceilings and I don't want to think about my special power/skill. It would have to adhere to the laws of physics though (Coco is many things, but fickle isn't one of them)

James Bond Movies are Rubbish!

I must say I find nearly every Bond movie an excruciating endurance test. Now, before you all start clamouring to drag me to the alter to be slaughtered, I want to make it known that I'm a great lover of crime action thrillers. In my opinion the only worthwhile screen presence featuring Roger Moore was THE MAN WHO HAUNTED HIMSELF... oh, and SPITTING IMAGE. The man has more dead wood than a lumberjack's yard. At least Connery brought some machismo to his Bond parts.

Another thing that probably won't go down well with you Bondphiles is ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE - I think it's the only Bond film that qualifies as a half-decent one. Here we had a more layered and emotional Bond in George Lazenby and at last, Bond fell in love (even though Diana Rigg reportedly gorged herself with garlic prior to love scenes as an open display of her real-life hatred towards Lazenby).

Speaking as someone who owns an obscene number of films, I'm very proud there's not a single Bond film sullying my overcrowded shelves. True Bond fans are a bit like Trekkies; obsessive talking encyclopaedias waiting for an opportunity to pounce and regale you with one of their innumerable unintelligibly obscure anecdotes. Don't diss 'em. Treat 'em kindly and if you laugh, make sure you do it behind their back otherwise it'll only end in tears. So in closing, I hope the Bondites won't launch their attacks at me too fiercely, after all, I've refrained from launching into a proper tirade over my true feelings for Bond

Re: James Bond Movies are Rubbish!

My favourite bond movie is Live and Let Die - great speedboat chase, a lot of humour, excellent theme toon and there's something a bit spooky about all that voodoo stuff. Yeah, the series is generally pretty patchy and sometimes rubbish but they're not supposed to be serious films. Pure escapist twaddle with lots of nice cars and girls - what's not to like?

Amber de Beauvoir!

Kind of liking the 'de' thing going on there.

But back onto the OP, If nothing else, Doctor No is a must.

(in fact anything Sean Connery IMHO, and I thought that Pierce Brosnan resurrected the whole deal - not seen the Daniel Craig versions)

Re: James Bond Movies are Rubbish!

Hi,

My real name produces a Bond Girl name of Tia McCox (how did they know I was Scottish!)

My screen name gives Amish Goodwood.

I enjoy the Bond series. No particular favourite though.

Cheers,

Amish.

Just out of interest Suzi Perry becomes Lupe Kournikova.

Re: James Bond Movies are Rubbish!

My real name gives Shira Goodenplenty whereas the old Prof would be known as Bunny Boneeya. Either way, a lot of fun is guaranteed it would seem...

And as for ToSellBeNastier's comments...

Clare Newsome:

Well I don't know about my Bond villain name, but according to this, my Bond Girl name would be Bunny Holiday.

And i'm keeping my special powers secret, just as the nice people at the training academy told me to Big Smile 

And mine would be.....I swear its true.....Coco Lovelock. Stick out tongue

My god I can see Mister Moore's eyebrow raising 6'' off his forehead  !




Could be worse. Could have been Loco Lovec.......You get the idea.
