Oh My - The Most Beautiful Bond Girl Yet?
Miami Poetry review ^ | 8/2006 | Tom hansen

Posted on 09/20/2006 7:57:53 PM PDT by pissant

The list is lengthy. From the highly sensual Ursula Andress as Honey Rider to the electric Halle Berry as Jinx, every James Bond film is known as much for one gorgeous female character as it is for its high tech action and suave sophistication.

But when it comes to the most recent selection, the casting folks hope they have broken the vault with Caterina Murino. The exotic beauty plays Solange in the latest Bond endeavor, Casino Royale, the first of Ian Fleming's wondrous Bond books.

Somehow, the beautiful Murino managed only a fourth place finish in the 1996 Miss Italy contest. However, the actress seems to have aged superbly since. The native of Cagliari, Sardinia reportedly may hit a new Bond moment of fame with her ride atop a white horse on a beautiful Bahama beach.

While no one is discussing the suitability of Murino to play the latest in a long line of Bond girls, many are criticizing the latest Bond, the British actor, Daniel Craig. The actor has been panned by many blog sites as unfit for the smooth agent known as 007.

Certainly attractive

But not the best

Well said, pissant, mate!

No 'Bond girl' since has ever held a candle to Diana and Honor!

If there's one thing I've NOT had to complain about in life it's that the Bond girls aren't hot enough. Impossible to pick ONE best Bond girl--Pussy Galore is up there because of her ass-kicking ability, but really, I'd take the WORST Bond girl. And so would you.

(P.S. The new M and Madonna are not Bond girls! Neither was Rosa Kleb!)

What is the name of the woman in Golden Eye? Janke Famson or something like that.
She was smokin' in that tight russian uniform with a cigar.
Meow.

My top tier, for sure. But there are another dozen or so on the 2nd tier that are highly worthy.

Sorry, but I'm not impressed. Sophie Marceau was much better looking.

Yeah, she had a cameo in the last one, which I did not see--she was training someone to use a foil (sword) or something.

One of my favorite was the red headed Italian, Luciana Paluzzi!!
Also, Izabella Scorupco in Golden Eye.

I actually really liked Golden Eye.
Give it a try this weekend. Just stay away from the one with Denise Richards as a top nuclear scientist.
Talk about about strange casting. Good looking. She was much better in Undercover Brother as White She Devil.

I think she is hot. She was in a terrible Sci-Fi movie called The Green Blob or something like that. Painful but she looked great.

Denise Richards ruined that Bond movie. Argh. And Sophie Marceau almost redeemed it.

And wasn't M played by Judi Dench? That was just as bad as Denise Richards as a bond girl.

Is there really any Bond girl that is not the 'best' in their time and place?

And beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder, as in this case. She is attractive, but does she break the bank--no!

You're thinking of Famke Janssen. She played "Xenia Onatopp" in Goldeneye.

You're right on that. I watched "A View to a Kill" on video. She was so annoying that when I got to the burning building scene, I was yelling at the TV for Bond to leave her in the flaming elevator shaft.

Did exactly the same thing. That was a terrible movie even with Christopher Walkin.
Those radio commercials that she does now annoy the heck out of me.
