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!

Top 10 Bond Cars

The James Bond film series is known for its repetitive elements. There’s always some witty banter with Q about new gadgets, for example, and we all know about the excitement that surrounds each new “Bond Girl” and each film’s introduction song. Another element that’s always of great interest to fans is the “Bond Car,” which is usually at the cutting edge of the automobile industry.

Ranking the best of these cars over so many years of film is a very subjective process. There is no “best” Bond car by any exact definition (though I suppose the latest would likely offer the highest quality performance), and people’s preferences will always differ. Some, at this point, love looking back on the older Bond cars that are now considered vintage. Others love nothing more than the latest and most impressive vehicles that Daniel Craig has been whizzing around in as 007 for the last few years.

At any rate, in celebration of the release of Spectre, here’s a look back at what I’d list as the top-10 Bond cars . . .

London Film Museum – Bond in Motion

On the trip to London over the weekend we decided to head across to the London Film Museum in Convent Garden to have a look at the Bond in Motion exhibition they have on at the moment (and for the rest of this year). It features many of the different cars, planes and other gadgets that are seen in all of the different Bond films. To see so many incredible cars in one place really is a brilliant experience, especially those smashed up Aston Martins!

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
