Ian’s Bond Education: Part 6

February 2, 2017

Tomorrow Never Dies Now for what may be the most generic of all the Bond movie titles… Tomorrow Never Dies opens well, as Bond has to fly a nuclear missile out of a terrorist mountain camp before the whole place explodes.  it injects adrenaline into the movie as it is meant to.  I also liked […]

Ian’s Bond Education: Part 5

July 9, 2016

The Living Daylights I’ve made it to the Dalton era!  I must say I like Timothy Dalton as Bond a lot more than Roger Moore.  He’s less smarmy than Moore was.  He’s more suave, though I have to say he does lack some charisma.  I guess that’s why he only lasted two films? Living Daylights […]

Ian’s Bond Education: Part 4

December 19, 2015

For Your Eyes Only So as I get further along in my Bond viewing, it feels like the original charm of the early 60’s films is gradually seeping out of this franchise.  The 70s saw the films turn more repetitive, less interesting, and much cheesier, and the 80s doesn’t seem to be reversing that trend […]

Spectre

December 15, 2015

And so the new Bond re-imagining comes full circle with its inclusion of Spectre and Bond’s nemesis Blofeld. And I quite enjoyed it. Spectre is a very solid entry into the 007 franchise. It offers a great villain, a great love interest, and a plot I was interested in following along with. The action scenes […]

Ian’s Bond Education: Part 3

August 19, 2015

The Man with the Golden Gun I was a little worried that I was gonna hate every Roger Moore film, but I didn’t hate this one.  I kind of liked the simple story of Bond vs. a hit-man idea.  It felt scaled back in a good way.  Though there was some ridiculous parts, like the […]

Skyfall

December 5, 2012

I must confess that I am not a James Bond fan. I’ve always found them to be either incredibly cheesy or just rather dull. The only real exceptions are Dr. No and the more recent Casino Royale. So coming from a non-Bind fan, what was my opinion of the super-hyped Skyfall? Its good. Its still […]

Quantum of Solace

November 3, 2009

It’s hard not to compare this movie to Casino Royale, which was better in pretty much every way. Casino Royale had a fleshed out story. Quantom had a thin story which was only used to hang the action pieces on. The bond girl in this new movie was certainly nothing special. They tried giving her […]
