  • George Lazenby bluffed his way into being James Bond, then bumbled it

    NY Post ^ | December 13, 2015 | 6:00am
    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.

However, the career which he carved out on stage and screen was probably far more interesting and durable than a life at the mercy of a big studio would have allowed. Certainly his bid for the big time was thwarted early on. MGM, who had been impressed with his performance in Never So Few (1959), signed him to a multi-million pound...

As of Jan. 1, the original writings of Fleming, a former British naval intelligence agent who published 12 novels and nine stories featuring 007 between 1952 and 1966, have entered the public domain. Thats because Canadas view of copyright is that it extends for 50 years after the death of a writer.

When Craig was hired to help reboot James Bond, he knew that he wanted to make a serious film both because he is a serious actor, and because a certain other spy spoof had made it impossible to do a goofy 007. "We had to destroy the myth because Mike Myers f-ed us," the actor told Bond fan publication MI6, referring to Myers remarkably successful Austin Powers series....
