Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Nobody Did It Better

Timothy Dalton was a tiny little gorilla man with a plumber’s jaw; Pierce Brosnan was saddled with shitty scripts, CG, and directors; Daniel Craig is a mopey little fuck who spends too much time in the gym; Sean Connery was my father’s James Bond.

Gimme Roger Moore and his bemused smirk: we knew those movies were dumb, and so did he. It was like we were in it together.

Baby, you were the best.

  1. I’m with you; Moore was easily my favorite 007.

    When I was 11 my uncle took me to see The Spy Who Loved Me and the image of the bond girl in that dress in the water at the end of the movie was etched in my mind forever. A few years ago I watched it on TV, mainly to see if that last scene was as great as I remembered. As luck would have it, my daughter who was herself 11 at the time walked in the room during that very scene and said, incredulously, “What’s up with her dress?”
    And can we all agree that Ringo is the luckiest man of all time?

  3. ah, christ, you forgot George Lazenby, the best evah! Although I might be heavily influenced by the fact that Diana Rigg was his co-star, and died in his arms. Go back and watch the fight scenes in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Terrific!
