Bond Movies - Whats The Fuss?

Sat Apr 23, 2005 2:30 am

Whats the big fuss over bond films? Personally i think they are crap. The action scenes are lame, the comedy pathetic, and the romance somewhat lacking.

Ive never quite understood why everyone warships bond films. Anyone else think they are crap?

Well said....


I don't worship him by any means but I do think he is cool...in a nutshell, he is the guy a lot of guys want to be. A man's man. He is good with the ladies, has a kick ass job, gets to travel the world, blow stuff up, shoot guns, be a spy, play with a bunch of awsome toys and gadgets. He is suave and debonare, charming to the ladies and witty in general yet a real arse-kicker.

Exactly!

I love Bond movies because of many reasons, for example:

  • The humor

  • The locations

  • The toys he gets from Q

  • The not lame action scenes

  • etc.

    first off im not from russia, im scottish.

    Second i dont see the appeal of band at all! The gadgets are all stupid and unrealistic, watches with lasers built it? Doubtful.

    The attempts at comedy in bond films just make me cringe, its not funny at all, and the plots are just so predictable!

    In From Russia With Love (1963), Bond answered his phone that was installed in his Bentley, people back then thought that was a ridiculous concept - a car phone.

    All the Bond movies provide is escapist fun, it doesn't need to be realistic and/or real world all the time.

    I'll give you that, the more recent Bonds have been a little too over the top on their chases/gadgets. But, on the whole, the Bond series have been great, with the action, the women, ... the women...

    When it comes to Bond movies that is quite the understatement. Most of it borders on science fiction if you ask me. Even Top Gun, being one of Hollywood's worst attrocities, was more realistic.  Wink

    It's all a matter of taste. I like the Bond movies (well, most of them), but don't understand the fuss over Star Trek at all, so I just don't watch it, and let those who do enjoy it, without dissecting why Trek doesn't flip my skirt.

    Funny that I saw this topic, as I am watching 'Goldeneye' on USA Network right now.

    I like the older 'movies' the best, as the gadgets and stories are starting to get a little ridiculous (invisable car). However, I really like Brosnan, and put him #2 behind Connery in my book.
