Everyone's too sensitive these days.

A love for the Bond movies was passed down from my late father, and that led to my reading all the Fleming novels and short stories and quite a few of the continuation ones, too. Love the character ..

Living Daylights has one of the best openings of anything I've ever seen. The car chase with the guy going off a cliff while Bond escapes in a parachute and lands on that babe's yacht as she immediate

How about ... 'James Bond is better than everything or nothing'?

 

It's what EON (the name of the production company that produces the Bonds) stands for and also the name of the '04 Bond Playstation game 'starring' Brosnan. So he did get to play him a fifth time, sort of.

It's also a damn accurate statement!

Well again I've only seen bits and pieces, but he looks and acts quite different, not really charming or debonair, just kinda silly, and with bad hair..... and he seems decades older than all the females in the films

Yea the one I saw a bit of it was clearly thinning out and they were trying to hide it by feathering it out or whatever it's called.  It looked bad.  I don't know which film it was

 

I never saw any bald spots on him. He might have been using a wig by the end of his run though.

His best themes are probably Body Heat, Midnight Cowboy, Born Free, Lion in Winter and the Bond themes.

 

How can you leave out Out of Africa?

Wow, check out Pierce Brosnan these days.  Guess he's officially an old man now.  Even wearing the tinted glasses like Roger Moore did for the last couple decades!

 

 

 

Nothing makes one look as old as tinted glasses.

That's the one with the underwater plane wreck and scubadiving, right? And the eyepatch guy!

 

Then he strikes... Like thunderbaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaall!

 

I've only seen each of the Bonds once, about 10 years ago, and I can remember this much about it, it can't be that bad!

Pierce looks good. I haven't seen him in anything since Die Another Day, at which point he still looked about the same as he did the first time we all saw him in Mrs. Doubtfire. I'd seen apparently bs clickbait stories about him wanting Bond to be played by a woman and I guess this was the source? He seems like a real down to Earth guy. He was an awesome 007.

I want one more Austin Powers.  At 56, Myers is now the perfect age to poke fun at Roger Moore in his Octopussy-View to a Kill period. 


Myers once mooted the idea of having a new Powers flick come out in every year a new Bond one did, although that would've meant another four with an upcoming fifth and maybe the joke would've worn thinner than Connery's hair.

Because I love Goldeneye and Tomorrow Never Dies but don’t really like TWINE and DAD, I guess I wish Bruce Feirstein had gotten more shots at Bond.  I must say I’ve never been a fan of Purvis and Wade, they have two good Bond movies that I don’t like as much as conventional wisdom and 4 I don’t really like at all. I hope their association with the franchise is coming to an end after No Time to Die.

 

Anyway I’m watching TND and Pryce is still my NUMBER ONE Bond baddie ever.
