Best Bond of All?

The new Bond film comes out tomorrow and people are excited. I have to say, I was not a fan of "Casino Royale", nor am I terribly excited about Daniel Craig as Bond. Frankly, I miss gorgey Pierce Brosnan, and Sean Connery was good, too. Craig is too blond, too muscular, and much too violent. My friend's theory is that there are two main camps of Bond fans: those that like Connery and those that like Roger Moore [I haven't seen any of his movies] and that those in the Roger Moore camp like Daniel Craig. I imagine, though, kudos are in order to the writers for trying to create a coherent storyline: "Quantum of Solace" finds Bond mad as hell over the betrayal--and death--of his beloved Vesper from "Royale", uncovering all sorts of nasty secrets and double-crossing, and tracking down the leaders of top secret organization QUANTUM. Explosions ensue.

The Boy
is dragging me to see the midnight showing tonight even though I have work tomorrow. I'm a glutton for abuse, I guess. Watch for a review, and in the meantime, take my poll: who's your favorite Bond?

  1. Yes I am a fan of the Sean Connery Bond and only saw a few with Rodger Moore before giving up. Live and Let Die was a good Bond flick I thought. Even though the Connery films seem a little odd at times in 2008 they are just enjoyable films

    By friend said the new Bond is more of a Jason Bourne type secret agent and I think to agree. A Bond for a generation with a shorter attention span.



Thanks so much for your comments!
