Criminally Bad Villains

Brosnan's Royale?

  After re-reading Casino Royale recently I wondered what if Brosnan had been given Fleming’s final unfilmed property as his…

Sir Ken Adam 1921-2016

Sir Ken Adam has died aged 95. He made many iconic set designs for seven James Bond films in the 60s and 70s. His wonderful extravagant designs – such as those on The Spy Who Loved Me – are one of the most memorable parts of the Bond series. He worked as a production designer…

Bond or Death? Craig answers the question nobody asked.

I thought I was far too optimistic with the last headline (re: Calling it Quits), and indeed there was some walk back, along with the expected undying support from EON (poor Babara always a bride at the alter waiting for her 007.). Craig has a mammoth payday from SPECTRE ($24million (£15.66m) for acting, around $6million…

Is Craig Calling it Quits?

Call it the curse of OHMSS (Spoiler SPECTRE is essentially a remake of OHMSS). Lazenby walked away from the role before the movie could be released cementing his time as bond before it really began. Craig has made noises that Spectre is his last. He has made similar disgruntled noises in the past after each…

Sir Christopher Lee has died aged 93. The English actor was of course Scaramanga in The Man With the Golden Gun. Lee was Ian Fleming’s step cousin, and was in fact offered the role of Dr No by Fleming in the first Bond film. But Joseph Wiseman had already been cast by the producers and…

Lazenby -How a Threesome Led Him to the Role of James Bond

Got to admire George Lazenby’s candor, in a Podcast interview with the Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg at the TCM Classic Film Festival Lazenby openly talks about his time as Bond as well as what led him there. While we are not exactly sure what “Podcasts” are, we sincerely hope those poor Orcas make back to their families safely. In all seriousness (and very bad…

Teaser Poster: Sterling Malory Archer is James Bond

A few weeks ago the EON team proudly released a teaser poster for their new film Hydra, no, wait sorry. S.P.E.C.T.R.E, I meant SPECTRE, their mascots are so similar it is easy to confuse them.   Aside from the computer generated looking Craig (photoshopped to the extreme) what got the attention of the younger generation was the…

Bond -Do Looks Matter?

Bond is famous as a handsome hero in the same guise as – for example – Superman. When Ian Fleming sat down with a stiff drink and penned his first thriller his hero was an archetypal one: tall, dark and handsome. But now today in 2015 we have a Bond in the movies who is the…
