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…

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…

Louis Jourdan 1921-2015

Louis Joudan has died aged 93. Louis was a French actor who found fame as an actor in film, tv and on the stage. A suave actor he had many memorable roles. One of these was as the evil villian Kamal Khan in Octopussy. RIP Louis.
