    Re: Bond...James Bond

    Who is your fave Bond villian? staffslad likes Donald the Great. So do I. Pleasence brought a subtle psychopathia to Ernst Stavro Blofeld the others did not. Auric Goldfinger is also up there in my preferred Bond villains as is Dr No the madman in the very first Bond film.

      Donalds portrayal of Blofeld was the inspiration for the hillarious Dr evil...interesting fact Gert frobe was dubbed for his part as Goldfinger due to his german accent

        Rosa Klebbe in From Russia with Love is another good villan. That poisoned blade in her shoe is very memorable. I also like her main henchman, Red Grant (Robert Shaw), and his fight with Bond on the train is one of the best in the series imo.

          My favorite Bond villain is General Orloff, the renegade Soviet general from "Octopussy," played by Stephen Berkoff who seemed to have been in demand as a villain in the 1980s as he was also the bad guy in "Rambo" and "Beverly Hills Cop."

            Agreed, two huge blokes like Connery and Shaw dukeing it out in that small space made for a great fight, i'm sure there must of been a few genuine bruises after shooting that scene. A similar fight was staged in a lift in diamonds are forever between bond and Peter franks.

                  Re: Bond...James Bond

                  Bond films? How many have been made now?

                  Just like the Rocky films with Sylvester Stallone; there were six

                  It must be now over kill with Bond

                  I lost interest by half a dozen

                  A better triology I find is the Bourne films:

                  Identity & Legacy & Supremacy & Ultimatum & the original Jason Bourne

                  Bit of over kill there too; but I prefer those films over the Bond franchise
                  sigpic
                  Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

                    I think there are now 23 Bond films, the franchise is still a huge moneyspinner and is unlikely to go away quietly, unfortunately there are now so many action film franchises that bond is always expected to be better than the last one which after 23 films is quite a big ask.

                        I think there have been 24 Bond films in the official series so far....

                        6 Connery
                        1 Lazenby
                        7 Moore
                        2 Dalton
                        4 Brosnan
                        4 Craig

                        The upcoming new film will be Bond 25. However, if you count the 1967 Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again from 1983, the total becomes 26 or 27 when Bond 25 is released.

                        As for the Carry On series, it was 30 films, or 31 if you also include the compilation film That's Carry On.

                            Going against popular opinion i have to say Roger moore was my LEAST favourite Bond, when Fleming wrote his novels he did not portray bond as a clown and an oaf, the stories were tales of espionage and meglomania but Moore with the help of the writers decided to play up the comedy to the extent that the films became a parody of themselves.
                            Yes the witty one liners were ok and served to show bond had a sense of humour but that really should have been the extent of the playing for laughs aspect of the films

                                Thinking about the number of actors who have played James Bond, I have always made comparisons between Bond and Doctor Who with regards to the number of actors playing the same character. I was wondering whether others seem to make the same comparisons?
                                I've everything I need to keep me satisfied
                                There's nothing you can do to make me change my mind
                                I'm having so much fun
                                My lucky number's one
                                Ah! Oh! Ah! Oh!
