Movie Series - James Bond

The James Bond film series are British spy films inspired by Ian Fleming's novels about the fictional MI6 agent James Bond (codename 007). The franchise remains as one of the longest continually running film series in history, having been in ongoing production from 1962 to 2008 with a six-year hiatus between 1989 and 1995. In that time EON Productions has produced 22 films, at an average of about one every two years. In addition, there are two independent productions and an American television adaptation of the first novel. Albert Broccoli and Harry Saltzman co-produced the EON films until 1975, when Broccoli remained the sole producer. Since 1995, Broccoli's daughter Barbara and stepson Michael G. Wilson have co-produced them. Six actors have portrayed 007 so far.

1 As soon as Sean Connery left the series it boned. With Moore, it devolved into a parody of itself. Closer to the Our Man Flint Series, which was a true parody. It improved a little under Pierce Brosnan and it's on the right track now with Daniel Craig, but it still falls short of the Bourne series. -- Submitted By: (rixter) on April 20, 2011, 11:13 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Boned - Connery left and replaced by Lazenby. Boned back - Connery did another movie (Diamonds Are Forever). Boned - Timothy Dalton takes the role, then the series goes on hiatus after Licence To Kill. Boned back - Pierce Brosnan is Bond in GoldenEye. I'd have to see Quantum of Solace to see if the series boned again or not. Casino Royale with Daniel Craig wasn't bad, but not quite memorable. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on November 7, 2010, 8:18 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Bond has not really boned yet. It has blips every now and again but always recovers. IMO Quantum was one of the worst yet, but I'm sure they'll bring it back strong - they always do. -- Submitted By: (cfc2011) on October 8, 2010, 10:52 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Though it was far from awful, I do have to admit that a blonde Bond was/is weird. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on April 30, 2010, 1:13 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Swanpride is pretty close on saying that the series has had a series of boning and unboning. That being said, I disagree with some of what Swan has said. In my opinion, the boning moments have been George Lazenby, and close to some of the stuff around the Roger Moore era. Other than that, the series has been great. Yes it is quite different from when Sean Connery first graced the screen as 007, but I think a part of that makes it fun, seeing the world 007 is in change around to fit the time period. I even think the current Bond (Daniel Craig) is good as Bond (but definitely not great like Connery, or Pierce Brosnan) As long as the franchise doesn't go on some stupid tangent like it almost did with the Sci-fi stuff in the Moore era, it will be fine. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on February 26, 2010, 6:13 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 The Bond movies are a long stories of boning and unboning. Sean Connery was great! His movies are the first golden age of the movies...it ended with the catastrophe which was Lazenby! The guy was simply not a good actor and especially not good enough to pull off a plot like that. Then came the silver age with Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton. They fit the bill, the movies were watchable overall, but he surely couldn't compare to Connery and movies like "Moonraker" were real boning moments. Pierce Brosnan brought the second golden age..Brosnan is a real good actor, he looks like Bond (and it is really a shame that he didn't get it the first time around) and the new modern tone of the movies gave fresh wind in the old series. I especially liked the new M, and the intro of "Die another day" is imho the best they ever made for a Bond. But with "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace" they really boned the fish. First of all: The whole "we tell Bonds past" idea doesn't make any sense when they have still the same M and Bond himself looks like a walking zombie. Craig looks too old for a normal Bond, for a young Bond he is definitly ancient. And he is blond! Blond! How could they? At the beginning of Casino Royal I actually thought that another actor on screen was supposed to be Bond and was totally surprised when Craig did the big chasing scenario. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on September 27, 2009, 4:07 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I love this series, but the newer films -- starting with Goldeneye -- are way too PC in some parts for my liking. -- Submitted By: (Replicant10k) on September 26, 2009, 8:25 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Wow; I loved QoS as well as the new Non Woody Allen Casino Royale. I can appreciate the older films, but I LOVE the new ones. Color me a bone then!! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on July 31, 2009, 6:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 The Connery era of course is something the series strives constantly to recapture but it is difficult without Connery's unmatchable wit and humor. Roger Moore did admirably but he overstayed his welcome, for sure, eventually becoming a parody of himself and James Bond in general. Lazenby I think had the most difficult movie to be in. I think he tried but he could never measure up even if he'd had another movie to prove himself. Dalton took an entirely different take, one that I imagine they are currently trying to take with Craig but Dalton's Bond had practically no sense of humor and if he did, it was unintentional. I think Bond has at least some regard for his superior's opinions and in keeping his job so I couldn't accept his take. I loved Pierce Brosnan. I think that's the closest we've come to returning to the Connery era. Craig is too sloppy for me. I think Quantum of Solace was the Boning point for me. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on July 31, 2009, 5:05 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 It's not that Daniel Craig's Bond was "too serious" for me, it's that he had absolutely none of the wit and style I had grown accustomed to the Bond role having, and on top of that he seemed to just blunder around like a bull in a china shop. In other words, he might as well have been just another guy in the suddenly popular again spy genre of media. Craig always seemed more of a hitman than an actual spy, who I assume in real life needs at least *some* degree of subtlety to do the job. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 17, 2009, 6:02 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

12 Hye in defense of the "Remake" of Casino Royale- this was done as a comedy by Woody Allen, as sort of an Austin Powers like send up (before Austin Powers) in the 60's or 70's) only recently had the rights become available to do this film as a real BOND film. So lets cut a little bit of slack to the franchise over this "Remake in Name Only" -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 28, 2009, 6:45 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 The series has had its low points but never boned. The main reason for this is the fact that the films are essentially stand alones. However, it could bone if they keep remaking old titles. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 28, 2009, 6:40 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Loved the new Daniel Craig Bond films - it goes back to the Ian Fleming no-nonsense hardened killer. I respectully slide the vinegar and tartar sauce away from your fishy Daniel Craig comments good sir!! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 30, 2009, 9:32 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 I voted for Timothy Dalton, not because he was a bad Bond, but because the quality of the stories seemed to decline from that point on. Brosnan had a couple of decent movies, particularly Die Another Day, the most Bond-like Bond movie since the 80s. But alas, the role passed to Daniel Craig, who might be good but seldom has any opportunity to act. The writing has gotten very fishy since the job was apparently given to a bunch of hyperactive kids. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 30, 2009, 9:18 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
16 No, James Bond never nuked the fridge (or boned the fish). EVER! This is excellent! Even if the movies are nothing to write home about, I still had fun watching them! My favorite Bond film is "A View to a Kill"! An exploding blimp (which was quite funny), a villain with a weird name (also funny), and Duran Duran - all excellent! The latest, "Quantum of Solace" had a quick Bond girl scene, but it's the best and funniest! (Hint: Bond and his lady check into a hotel.) -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 17, 2009, 8:55 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
