I’m going to pre-cursor this theory with a simple statement: This is my opinion of the series and not necessarily the intended view. It isn’t an original view, I’d heard it many times before and dismissed it as quickly but as … Continue reading Month of Bond: Why James Bond is a codename and not one man!
The final day of Month of Bond and fittingly I have finally seen them all! So all that is left is to put them in order, from worst to the best. Suitably there is a decent mix of the different Bond’s … Continue reading Month of Bond: Ranking every Bond film!
This is one of those posts I know will cause arguments. Everyone has their own criteria for what makes a good James Bond (or a bad one) and sometimes it doesn’t even matter how good the films themselves are. I think the … Continue reading Month of Bond: Who is the Best James Bond?

The second half becomes something more … Continue reading Month of Bond: The Living Daylights (1987) Review
