Thread: James Bond

  1. James Bond

    So If I were to start at the beginning, basically having never seen any of these, should I skip any? Is there any sort of arc or are they all pretty much self contained?

  2. Aside from the Daniel Craig ones they’re all stand alone.
    You sir, are a hideous hermaphroditical character which has neither the force and firmness of a man, nor the gentleness and sensibility of a woman.

  3. skip em all until Casino Royale.
    They are a product of their time.


    People will SAY the Con Seannery ones are the best, but that’s because that’s what you’re expected to say.
    Truth is that they’re incredibly slow paced and when something finally does happen the “effects” are so abysmal (who needs fast cars in a chase scene? just fuck with the film speed instead! it’s just as good!) and choreography so ancient (dudes are clearly throwing punches 4 feet away from intended target) that it’s just hokey. That’s not to say there arent defects out their that like that type of shit. Call them Dr. Who fans or whatever. But really, the Bond films dont hold up, and I used to love bond.

  4. Yeah they’re also a bit on the offensive side nowadays as well. Although I do still have a love for Goldeneye
    You sir, are a hideous hermaphroditical character which has neither the force and firmness of a man, nor the gentleness and sensibility of a woman.

  5. I thought Daniel Craig sucked. Maybe not his fault but the recent JB films are so uninspired, they feel like a bunch of paint-by-the-numbers action films. I like Jason Bourne films so much better.

  6. incorrect.
    though quantum of solace was a total snoozefest.
    Casino Royale and Spectre’s openings were visual feasts.

  7. So the correct answer is, read the books.

    Some elements do carry over, like Bond's dead wife from On Her Majesty's Secret Service. She's mentioned in a few later films, and one (For Your Eyes Only, I think) starts with him visiting her grave.

  9. You don't really need to watch in any order but I started with the Daniel Craig Casino Royale and went retroactively. It helped me understand what was outstanding and what was kinda meh about the series. You Only Live Twice is FANTASTIC, the others can be variable.

    Boring visual feasts, maybe.
