Someone should cos-play as Barbarella at ReaperCon this year.

Be careful what you wish for.
I nominate Bryan.
Now see what you've done.

 

I am not going and would never know as long as pictures aren't posted...

With my Marvel movie marathon out of the way, I'm now on a Bond movie marathon, Dr. No was a much better film than I remember it being.

 

1 down, 20 to go...

 

Ah, very nice. I miss holiday Bond marathons on Spike with the family. Those were good times. May have to break out some DVD's. Think I have the Connery set here somewhere . . . .

 

 

 

In the meantime, have watched Bad Santa and Coming To America. 'Cause why not, I guess.

Well, you've got the most important set, then. Now you just need the Daniel Craig set.

Eh, I've got those, too. I've really cooled on the whole Daniel Craig experience, though. They've become so unBondlike that I've actually started to appreciate Brosnan more than I did during his tenure. I'll take Moore right after Connery, anyway. Those're the ones I needs be adding.

 

Though I think they may be on Amazon Prime, which'd solve such a dilemma. I spotted some Connery and Dalton entries, this afternoon. I will have to investigate further.

I like Roger Moore as Bond more than Sean Connery, though the movies themselves where a little less. Bronson was a good Bond, and really did well in Goldeneye, the others, well I blame the script more than the actors. Craig did great in Casino Royale but after that....meh

I can't take him over Connery, but I love Moore's Bond, too. He was running on fumes at the end of his tenure (and a lot of that was the writing; I mean, not even blonde Russian psychopathic supersoldier Christopher Walken could save A View to a Kill), but I love his campy, wry portrayal. That's what finally wore me out with the Craig films--they never stop taking themselves seriously. I like Casino Royale and didn't hate Quantum of Solace. Skyfall is, I think, a pretty great movie--but it doesn't feel much at all like a Bond film to me. More like, I guess, what we'd get if Christopher Nolan had inserted James Bond into his last Batman movie. Or something. Yeah.

 

I think Goldeneye is a top-tier Bond movie, and I think Brosnan's others are a little underrated. A lot of people (me, too) kind of got to focusing on Brosnan's shortcomings, and the others weren't necessarily great scripts (though in retrospect I think an argument at least can be made for The World Is Not Enough), but he had a solid enough run.

 

 

And, yep, definitely gonna have to break out some Bond, tomorrow. I'm excited for it, now. :lol:

You know, it is a bit of an unkindness to nominate Bryan for a costume without his awareness or consent.

well, I was more nominating him for a lack of a costume, but I suppose I should maybe have at least let him know first.....maybe....though that would ruin the potential hilariousness to be had when he finds out

Sometime around Quantum of Solace' release, I saw a great article that discussed each bond actor as a product of their time...and I agree that Brosnan was an excellent Bond for the economic excess of the nineties. And yes, Goldeneye was quite good.

I like Craig, he's kind of a stone-cold killer. It's kind of how I've always read "Book Bond." (v. "Movie Bond") The only other one that came close for me was Connery. I kind of liked Lazenby, too, but that didn't last.
