Please, Leave James Bond Alone!

This isn’t the first time we have heard of people wanting James Bond to suddenly become a woman. I personally do not understand why and quite shocked that Pierce Brosnan has been the latest to come out and support Jane Bond as it is being branded about. I seriously do not understand why. Why should a male character be changed to female when we could just have a brand new franchise and character made up? Stop trying to make everything go overboard towards women. Something I have been rather annoyed about in recent years to be honest.

I want good interesting female characters not some gender swapped Bond. I mean come on as much as I enjoy a good Bond film the character is very outdated in terms of mannerisms which is probably how Jason Bourne and Ethan Hunt (Bourne and Mission Impossible) have overtaken the action in the films. So why can’t we have a better Bond instead? Don’t just change the gender in an attempt to be politically correct, make the male version better and more relevant to 2019. We don’t hear people wanting Bourne or Hunt to be made female?

James Bond 25 = Shatterhand

The title of the next instalment in the James Bond franchise is named Shatterhand. The film which seems to have been talked about forever without much really happening in terms of filming, well of course expect Danny Boyle leaving the project although he was always a strange choice as he was never going to have creative control.

But we do now have a title for Daniel Craig’s final appearance as 007!

Bondathon: Bond in Motion (Cars of Spectre)

Back in July 2014 I first went to the Bond in Motion exhibition at the London Film Museum in Covent Garden. You can read about it here. But after completing my Bondathon and eventually catching up with a lot of the films I decided to take another trip to the Film Museum on Wednesday. They had also added the Cars of Spectre to it along with some of the costumes, so I decided that another trip would be a very good idea.

Bondathon: Ranking the 24 Films

As I was making my way through the Bond films I was putting them in a ranking list from Best to Worst. I thought that would be the easiest way to do it as would probably forget exactly what happened in each of the films. So basically when ranking them I just decided which film I liked it better than and placed it in the list. Some of them were extremely difficult to pick where to put them so I might not even be able to justify it’s place in the list. But here you have 1-24 in order from Best to Worst MY Bond list!

007 at the Movies

As we are gearing up to James Bond’s 23rd cinema outing Skyfall at the end of this month, everything is Bond! Last week Adele reached number 1 with the single of the same name for the up and coming film, with a very traditional Bond theme! Daniel Craig is back for his 3rd outing, but Sky Movies have also got involved by having a whole Movie channel devoted to 007. Showing every film, over and over again! Brilliant build up to Skyfall’s release. I am going to attend to review the other 22 Bond films before the release of Skyfall . . . It is going to be a difficult task but I am going to try!!! 007
