    Former James Bond star Roger Moore has died after a battle with cancer, his family confirmed Tuesday. He was 89. Moore, who epitomized James Bond in seven films from 1973 to 1985, died in Switzerland after a short but brave cancer fight, according to a statement released by his three children. The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone, said Moores kids, Deborah, Geoffrey and Christian.

Yes we were…it didn’t work out…but became something of our own which we love very much…
  • George Lazenby bluffed his way into being James Bond, then bumbled it

    George Lazenby certainly looked the part. But could the 28 year old, who had no acting experience and was more himbo than sophisticate, really play James Bond? Producers ran him through a series of tests to make sure the model could play the role. His acting was reviewed. His fighting ability was judged. Then, in another important consideration for the times, they made sure their hero wasn’t gay.

  • Has Mission: Impossible Gotten Better Than James Bond?

    11/14/2015 8:31:29 PM PST · by Perdogg · 32 replies
    The spy/espionage sub-genre of movies is in no danger of petering out. This year alone brought us big films like The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Spectre, the latest James Bond adventure; not to mention news that another big spy franchise (Jason Bourne) will be continuing, as well. With so many spies out there playing cloak and dagger games across the silver screen, it’s not surprising that there could be some creative bleed-over between franchises. Mission: Impossible 5 and James Bond 24 were especially similar: both featured stories where the franchise hero had to uncover a...
  • Here's how much you'll have to spend to look exactly like James Bond in 'Spectre'

    11/14/2015 4:39:41 AM PST · by Perdogg · 16 replies
    It’s no secret that James Bond is a stylish, discerning gentleman. It’s his reputation, practically built into his character from the very first movie. A few strategic partnerships as well as a discerning eye in the costume department has turned Britain’s leading secret agent into one of the best-dressed men to ever hit the silver screen. So when it comes to dressing like him, what will do? It turns out the answer to that is the very best of everything.

AFTER 52 HOURS, 22 bags of popcorn, and a trashcan-size soda, the editors at Air & Space have finished watching all of the Bond flicks, counting more than 160 aircraft and spacecraft (both fictional and non-). Bond and company have flown just about everything from "Bird 1" (Ernst Blofeld's fictional two-stage rocket used to capture U.S. and Soviet spacecraft) in You Only Live Twice to the Aerospatiale/Eurocopter helicopter operated by psychopath Xenia Onatopp (who uses her thighs to crush her opponents to death) in GoldenEye to the hot-air balloon blown up by the Cigar Girl assassin in The World...
  • ‘Spectre’ will bore you to death

    A license to kill is also a license to not kill,” M lectures his new boss in the 24th James Bond film, “Spectre.” Well, it’s not a license to bore as much as this bloated drag manages to do. After a smashing opening sequence with a rooftop chase set against Day of the Dead observances in Mexico City, we’re plunged into a patchy plot (basically the same as the last “Mission: Impossible” outing) that’s little more than an excuse for random homages to the series’ illustrious past — reminding us how utterly mediocre this one is.

    MRC TV ^ | October 26, 2015 5:06pm ET | Monica Sanchez
    British journalist and TV personality Piers Morgan published an article via Daily Mail Online on Monday, calling for an end to this PC nonsense regarding backlash facing actor Sir Roger Moore for his recent remarks on the true character of James Bond. Morgan's favorite James Bond Sir Roger Moore, 88, has come under fire for saying that the 007 character originally created by author Ian Fleming should never be gay or female. [] In his piece, Morgan defends Moore and argues that changing Bonds gender or sexual orientation would fundamentally transform the whole tone of the franchise.
  • Spectre review: James Bond is back, stylish, camp and sexily pro-Snowden

    10/21/2015 7:23:30 PM PDT · by Perdogg · 12 replies
    If nothing else, the spelling of the title should tip you off that this is a thoroughly English movie franchise. Bond is back and Daniel Craig is back in a terrifically exciting, spectacular, almost operatically delirious 007 adventure endorsing intelligence work as old-fashioned derring-do and incidentally taking a stoutly pro-Snowden line against the creepy voyeur surveillance that undermines the rights of a free individual. Its pure action mayhem with a real sense of style. Ralph Fienness M finds himself battling a cocky new colleague Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott) who wishes to abolish the 00-programme in favour of a vast...

    Christopher Wood, screenwriter on two big James Bond films of the 1970s, has died, Roger Moore said on Twitter. Wood, 79, was brought on to write 1977s The Spy Who Loved Me by the movies director, Lewis Gilbert. He came aboard after various scribes Richard Maibaum, Stirling Silliphant, Cary Bates and others had tried their hand at a story for the 10th 007 film.

    Maybe he had one too many martinis but Daniel Craig was in full-on truth mode when he seemed to indicate in an interview with the UKs Time Out that his time as Britains favorite spy was over. When asked if the actor, who plays the iconic James Bond for a fourth time in the upcoming "Spectre," would do another 007 film, the answer was salty, to say the least. Id rather break this glass and slash my wrists, said Craig. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That's fine. I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I...

    We all know its only a matter of time. Daniel Craig is hinting that Spectre, his fourth time playing James Bond, might be his last as 007. In a new profile for the UK version of Esquire, the 47-year-old actor hinted at the possibility of not returning. I really dont know. Honestly. Im not trying to be coy. At the moment I cant even conceive it, he said in the story. When pressed if hed consider at least one more turn at Bond, Craig replied:

    Anyone who thinks to diverge even slightly from this now officially accepted view, to be held by everyone everywhere in the world on pain of excommunication, is a racist. We know this because of the recent experiences of childrens author Anthony Horowitz, who briefly committed heresy over the weekend when he dared to suggest that Elba was perhaps too street to play a suave, Eton-educated, Senior-Service-trained, half-Swiss, half-Scots secret agent.
