Sit Down, 007


As if I haven't bitten off more than I can chew already over at Ramblings of a Honk Mahfah, here I go again, starting a second blog.  This one, though, is a bit more purpose-driven: it intends to be a movie-by-movie encylcopedia of all the James Bond films (and possibly all the novels as well, eventually).  I'm not trying to replace Wikipedia, though; I'm looking more at just having a repository for my own thoughts about the Bond movies.

I'm going to be rewatching all of the movies prior to the release of the 23rd film in the series in November 2012, and that means a movie or two a month between now and then.

It may be a week or two before I get my first real post -- about the television version of Casino Royale -- up, but for now, if you feel like it, post a comment and let me know your general thoughts about the movies, the character, the music, the games (about which I know little), or whatever else you fee like.

I'll start off with my Bond bona fides:

Favorite movie:  On Her Majesty's Secret Service

Least favorite movie:  Casino Royale (1967)

Favorite Bond actor:  Sean Connery

Favorite Bond actress:  Daniela Bianchi, From Russia With Love

Favorite Bond villain:  Auric Goldfinger

Favorite title song:  Diamonds Are Forever

Or that's how they stand for now; I go back and forth between OHMSS and Thunderball as favorite movie, and Casino Royale is steadily gaining on them.

Let me know what you think, and I'll see you before long with my thoughts on the Climax! episode that serves as an obscure prologue to the film series.
