"GOLDFINGER" (1964) Review"

Ever since its release in 1964, the James Bond movie, "GOLDFINGER" has been regarded as one of the best ever in the franchise. In fact, it is considered द्वारा many Bond प्रशंसकों as the franchise's definitive film, considering that it और या less created what is known as "the Bond formula".

The 1959 Ian Fleming novel, upon which the movie is based, is also highly regarded द्वारा some fans. However, others believe that the movie is an improvement on the literary version. While I agree that the movie, "GOLDFINGER" is an improvement over the novel, I have a rather low opinion of...

"OCTOPUSSY" (1983) Review

While perusing some of the Bond forums, I have noticed that 1983’s ”OCTOPUSSY” is not highly regarded द्वारा many fans. Personally, I have always found this hard to understand या accept, considering that the movie has been one of my प्रिय entries in the Bond franchise for years. But after watching it recently . . . I still do not understand its low standing amongst the fans.

The pre-title sequence for "OCTOPUSSY" is merely a little teaser about Bond’s attempt to sabotage a मिसाइल system in the केला, केले Republic (aka Cuba). It was light, humorous and filled with...

"THUNDERBALL" (1965) Review

I had just viewed the 1965 Bond movie, "THUNDERBALL" for the first time in several years. And I can see why this movie is considered to be one of my all time प्रिय Bond flicks. But I do not think I can state why in one या two sentences.

“THUNDERBALL” turned out to be director Terence Young’s third and last Bond film. Most Bond प्रशंसकों consider it to be his least superior film, but I consider it to be his सेकंड best, following 1963’s “FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE”. The story was based upon an unfinished script called “Warhead”, co-written द्वारा Ian Fleming,...

"THE PARADOX OF JINX JOHNSON"

When I had first पोस्टेड टिप्पणियाँ about the 2002 James Bond movie "DIE ANOTHER DAY" on message boards and forums, I found myself face to face with a surprise. Apparently, many प्रशंसकों found Halle Berry’s performance as NSA Agent Giacinta “Jinx” Johnson unsatisfactory. And after perusing और of the James Bond message boards, I also learned that Berry is regarded द्वारा many Bond प्रशंसकों as ”the worst Bond girl” in the franchise’s history.

After recovering from this shocker, I began to read some of the reasons why Berry is now so reviled द्वारा the Bond fandom. Quite...

"SKYFALL" (2012) Review

Before I had sat down in a movie theater to watch the latest James Bond movie, "SKYFALL", it occurred to me that four years had passed since the last movie about the MI-6 agent. During those four years, EON Productions endured another round of legal entanglements regarding the Bond franchise, delaying the production and release of "SKYFALL" द्वारा at least two years. But in the end, producers Barbara ब्रोकोली and Michael G. Wilson came through and released the company's 23rd James Bond film.

"SKYFALL" begins in Istanbul, Turkey; where MI-6 agents James Bond and "Eve" go after...

"QUANTUM OF SOLACE" (2008) Review


I am going to be perfectly frank. I had hesitated to write this review of the 2008 James Bond movie, ”QUANTUM OF SOLACE”. Why? Because it has left me in a daze.Four days have passed since I saw the movie and I am still experiencing slight feelings of confusion about it. I had considered delaying my review until a सेकंड viewing, but I decided to go ahead and write my first impressions of the film.

”QUANTUM OF SOLACE” is obviously a direct sequel of the 21st film in the Bond franchise, ”CASINO ROYALE”. The पूर्व movie ended with James Bond’s (Daniel...

"SPECTRE" (2015) Review

Following the release of the 2012 movie, "SKYFALL", my interest in the James Bond movie franchise had somewhat dropped. This was due to my negative reaction to the movie. In other words, I disliked it. When I learned that Sam Mendes, who had directed "SKYFALL", would return to direct the franchise's 24th movie, I did not receive the news very well and paid as little attention to the production of this new movie as possible. But . . . my family has never been able to resist the release of a new James Bond movie. So, we did not hesitate to rush to the theaters when "SPECTRE"...

Before watching my DVD copy of 2006’s ”CASINO ROYALE” for the upmteenth time, I had assumed that my initial enthusiasm toward the 21st James Bond thriller would dim with time. I felt certain that I would have enough of the fictional British Secret Service agent. Needless to say, my assumptions proved to be wrong. I managed to enjoy ”CASINO ROYALE” और than ever. It has become firmly entrenched as my सेकंड प्रिय Bond movie of all time, following 1969’s ”ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE”.

From the black-and-white opening shot of MI-6 Section Chief Dryden arriving at his...

 James Bond's Camaro
James Bond's Camaro
Bond got to Q's lab where he saw the Jaguar F type being fitted with gadgets.

"What do आप have planned now?" Bond asked Q.

"While your new Jaguar is being fitted with gadgets, I have chosen another car for your assignment." Q responded.

"And that is?" Bond asked.

Q pulled a tarp off of another car revealing a brand new Camaro. "What do आप think?"

"You couldn't have gotten me an Aston Martin?" Bond asked a little disappointed.

"I'd be और then welcome to get आप a Citroen." कहा Q.

This made Bond cross. He remembered having to drive a Citroen 2CV one time, and that was not a good time. "Proceed."...

"THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH" (1999) Review


I must admit that when I first saw "THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH" in the theaters a little over seven years ago, I was not impressed. Well, to be honest, I did not like the movie at all. But after my हाल का viewing, I could not help but wonder if I had allowed my mild dislike of the पूर्व Bond entry, "TOMORROW NEVER DIES" to spill over in my view of the Bond franchise’s 19th entry.

Although the movie’s शीर्षक comes from the Bond family’s motto, first revealed in the 1969 movie, "ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE", its story started with the murder of...

About four days later, in another part of North Korea. A colonel named Lu Hatata walked into the room where the launch codes were. "Have आप came up with new launch codes?" He asked a technician

The technician was too busy with his work, and didn't here what Hatata had कहा to him.

"Have आप came up with new launch codes?!" The colonel asked again, और louder this time.

"No." The technician replied.

"Then आप need to hurry up with your work. We must get them back as quickly as possible."

A captain walked in "Sir? Your flight to Chicago is all set." He said.

"Thank you." Replied the colonel....

"DIE ANOTHER DAY" (2002) Review

The 2002 movie, ”DIE ANOTHER DAY” marked several milestones in the James Bond franchise. One, it was released during the 40th anniversary of the cinematic Bond, which began with 1962’s ”DR. NO”. Two, it was the first time that a non-white actress portrayed the leading lady in a Bond film. And three, it happened to be Pierce Brosnan’s last Bond film for EON Productions . . . at the moment.

”DIE ANOTHER DAY” starts out with a mission in which Bond has to kill a North Korean army officer named Colonel Moon, who has been illegally selling military...

"YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE" (1967) Review

In हाल का years, EON Production’s 1967 movie, "YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE" has not been highly regarded द्वारा many Bond fans. In a way, I can understand why, judging द्वारा Sean Connery’s performance in his fifth consecutive turn as James Bond and the movie’s plot.

The plot begins with the abduction of an American अंतरिक्ष capsule in अंतरिक्ष द्वारा a mysterious craft. The U.S. government blames the Soviet government, but the British government, who has tracked the mysterious craft to Japan, where James Bond is sent to investigate. With the help of Tiger Tanaka and Japan’s...

"THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS" (1987) Review

Last साल marked the 25th anniversary of EON Productions' release of its 15th entry in the Bond franchise – "THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS". The movie featured the first of two times in which actor Timothy Dalton portrayed the famous British spy, James Bond. I first saw "THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS" on the night of July 31, 1987 – the तारीख, दिनांक of its original U.S. release. My family and I saw it at the Grauman Chinese Theater in Hollywood. The theater was so packed that we ended up seated near the screen. I had a headache द्वारा the time the movie ended. Yet, watching the movie...

"A VIEW TO A KILL" (1985) Review

The साल 1985 marked a milestone in the history of the Bond franchise. This was the साल in which EON Productions released their latest Bond film, "A VIEW TO A KILL". The movie would turn out to be Roger Moore's last turn as the British agent, James Bond. With this movie, Moore would become the only actor who has portrayed Bond for EON Productions और than any other - seven times. Sean Connery would also portray Bond seven times, but his last effort would not be for EON Productions.

But this review is not about Moore's tenure as James Bond. It is about his last...

"DR. NO" (1962) Review

his 1962 movie marked the cinematic debut of the Bond franchise, created द्वारा Cubby ब्रोकोली and Harry Saltzman (EON Productions). Sean Connery also made his debut in this film as the MI-6 agent, James Bond. Although many critics and प्रशंसकों consider film as one of the और impressive in the franchise, I honestly cannot say that I share their opinion.

”DR. NO”’s story starts with the murder of MI-6 agent Strangeways and his secretary द्वारा a trio of assassins in Jamaica. Bond is ordered द्वारा his superior, M, to investigate the agent’s death and eventually stumbles upon a...

"MOORE AS BOND"

I always found it odd that many Bond प्रशंसकों tend to dismiss Roger Moore's performances as a non-threatening Bond. While watching the "Special Features" segment for my "CASINO ROYALE" DVD, I saw the "Bond Girls Are Forever" segment in which Jane Seymour described her character's relationship with Moore's Bond. From what she and Maud Adams had said, I got the distinct impression that in his own way, Moore's Bond was just as ruthless as the other Bonds.

Unlike his fellow Bond actors, Moore’s ruthlessness usually did not involve grittiness of any kind या overt menace. Judging from...

TIMOTHY DALTON AND THE JAMES BOND FRANCHISE

I am going to start out saying that EON Productions have been lucky in choosing the six actors who managed to bring their own sense of style to the role of James Bond . . . and I mean all of them. And all were smart enough to portray Bond in a way that suited them, instead of adhering to what the public या the producers wanted them to play Bond.

That said, I want to say a few things about Timothy Dalton. Even though I was a major प्रशंसक of Roger Moore, I realized द्वारा the mid-80s that it was time for him to retire from the role. With great fondness, I said...

Recently, I have been perusing the Internet for लेखाए and मंचों on EON Productions’ newest Bond flick, “CASINO ROYALE”. Naturally, I came across scores of लेखाए and reviews on both the new and past Bond movies. I also checked several मंचों that focused upon the Bond franchise. The one topic that popped up without fail seemed to be the सवाल of which actor portrayed the best James Bond.

The character of James Bond, Agent 007, has been portrayed द्वारा six actors for EON Productions and in two unofficial Bond films during the past 52 years. In 1954, American actor Barry Nelson portrayed...

"THE SPY WHO LOVED ME" (1977) Review

"THE SPY WHO LOVED ME" became EON Productions 10th entry in the Bond franchise in 1977. It also marked Sir Roger Moore’s third turn as British agent, James Bond, Cubby Broccoli’s as sole producer for the first time and Lewis Gilbert’s सेकंड time at bat as director of a Bond film. This is the movie that introduced the catchphrase, “Nobody does it better,” and according to many critics and fans, saved the Bond franchise back in the 1970s. Watching "THE SPY WHO प्यार ME", I can understand why many would harbor this belief.

Many critics and प्रशंसकों tend...
