    Moonraker is a bad film even beyond the worst Bond film, lol. I watch it to laugh, and imagine the director taking himself seriously. Moore was the lady getter of all the Bonds. Not physically imposing, but used that to outwit his opponents and gals. He also is the brainiest of the Bonds. He probably should have quit after Octokitty, he was looking too old in View to a Kill, even though its watchable. But Moonraker…<gag>.

    I love the toys. I watch for the toys
    (watches that cut iron, LASERS, underwater cars)

    So, I guess I dont care which Bond. Seems like the newer ones are too 'realistic'.
    No futuristic toys........I dont like that. lol

    I love the climax of the 1967 "Casino Royale" and the theme song, but the rest is pretty unbearable. That's what happens when you hire multiple writers and directors (including John Huston and Billy Wilder).

    Watched "From Russia With Love" last night, tagged "Goldfinger" for the DVR. The early Connery ones are my favorites.

    I was referring to Connery as Bond. I enjoy Daniel Craig VERY MUCH.....those are GREAT films. But when I was in Jr High in the early sixties, and first read the Ian Fleming books (before any film ever came out) I had a picture of Bond in my head that fit Connery perfectly.
    Favorite Bond actors is a game we play here......Connery, Moore, Lazenby, Brosnan, Dalton and now Craig. (I don't even count the first Casino Royale) Can't wait until they (blasphemously) appoint a female Bond.....then "IT" will really hit the fan. ;)

    In my Not-So-Humble Opinion, the Bond Actors are rated thus:

    -Connery...because, well, DUH—he’s Sean Connery. I’d listen to him read a phone book.

    Craig...plays the character (a brutal, semi-sociopathic killer) closest to the original Ian Fleming books, next to...

    Dalton...also played the character closer to the original books than his predecessors, as far as the “character.”

    Brosnan...he’s an excellent Bond. He had some crappy material to work with...although some of them weren’t horrible; “Goldeneye” was good, and the Halle Berry one was good if 1/4 of the plot and 80% of the gadgets had been removed.

    Lazenby...I would like to have seen him play the character more than once. This was a decent-to-good film and he played the part credibly...but I can’t give him any higher rating due to shortness of tenure.

    Somebody else...

    Moore...there were some good films in his tenure, but he was about as threatening as a chocolate eclair.

    We played and recorded one James Bond tune many years ago : "Another Way To Die"



    I used a US Std 2012 Strat, a Fender Mustang III (reverb and clean), and a RAT 1981 Rev. b distortion for the end title guitar chorus.

    Get the novel called Courtney's War by Wilbur Smith if you want to meet a female Bond. I just finished it.

    My 'relationship' with the Bond franchise is interesting. The first movies I saw were Moore era (due to my age), so there's a bit of favoritism/nostalgia for those movies. However, once I saw the Connery films I saw the light, and they remain my favorite films. To further complicate things, Craig's version was indeed closest to the Bond portrayed in the novels, so that is a huge plus for me.

    Aw, Hell, I guess I just like them all for different reasons.

    Me too. I thought OHMSS was a decent movie and that Lazenby showed a lot of potential for the role. Of course what really made that movie was Diana Rigg playing the love interest. What a class act that lady is. Smart and sexy. She was also great at age 80 on Game of Thrones. Same class act.:cool:

    The Packers wanted to lose, and were intent on doing so, but the Bears showed them HOW to lose.
