Never Say Never Again

Just my little instruction to the MTF forum. While we're waiting for Adelaide, what's everyone's favourite Bond film out of interest?

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Never Say Never Again

This is the most random thread I have read today... hilarious. I've never seen any Bond films, sadly *sniff*

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Re: Never Say Never Again

I see... but you are aware that Never Say Never Again is one of 'em, right? It's just that my question makes absolutely no sense otherwise...

Re: Never Say Never Again

As Dr No was my first, it's always been a favourite.

Dunno, they kinda have all blurred together in my memory. When I was 14 (9years ago) I had this Bondmarathon and since then I haven't seen any of the old (=good) ones...

Pierce Brosnan is helping me get over my Sean Connery = James Bond fixation.

I liked Die Another Day.
I like Goldfinger and Dr No.

I don't consider NSNA to be a true Bond film.

I like it's original version, Thunderball, better.
My favs also are (in this order):
From Russia With Love
For Your Eyes Only
The Living Daylights
The Spy Who Loved Me
Live and Let Die

Sadly, I've never loved a Brosnon pic all the way through. I've liked parts of all of them. I think his best is still GoldenEye. I did like the first part of the new one, but hated the whole Ice Castle/Face Change second part.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Never Say Never Again

My favourite Bond film? Octopussy. No, don't laugh, I'll have you know this is a superb example of late-Roger Moore 007. All those who lazily say that everything post-Connery is silly, overly humorous rubbish fail to make a distinction between the serious Moore films and the lousily trivial ones. Favourite Connery was You Only Live Twice, and favourite Brosnan... probably The World is Not Enough, although it's hard to think of them as a continuation of the old films rather than a completely new series just because the production style is so different.
