  • A Bond Retrospective: Never Say Never Again

    As a kid, Never Say Never Again was just another Bond film. While I had some official VHS copies of a few of the films, most in my collection were recorded off the TV, adverts included. The order of the films and the actors playing the famous super spy...
  • A Bond Retrospective: Daniel Craig

    I’ve been using the word “era” to describe the different spans of time that actors have played the character of James Bond, like “the Moore era” or “the Dalton era”, but rarely do they feel completely and totally different from one another. There’s a subtle progression from one phase...
  • A Bond Retrospective: Pierce Brosnan

    I’ve always thought of Pierce Brosnan as a better Bond than his films. He joined the franchise at an interesting time; the world had changed and Bond had to change with it. James is called out as a “misogynistic dinosaur” in Goldeneye, a character out of his time and...

  • A Bond Retrospective: George Lazenby

    George Lazenby is the odd Bond out. An Australian car salesman who became a model. A model who became an actor in TV adverts. A TV actor who became the world’s most iconic film character. And then gave it all up after just one appearance as James Bond, refusing...
  • A Bond Retrospective: Sean Connery

    “Bond. James Bond.” With those famed words, the greatest single British contribution to cinema was born. A secret agent that has spawned a film series like no other. A character that is still as engaging today, after 24 films, as he was back when he dominated the global box...
