A deprived woman's dream

Advantages: Classic Bond Action modernised!
Disadvantages: Advertising

I finally made it to see the new Bond! Pierce Brosnan... drool... OK, enough of that!! I took my son to see it last Saturday, and we had trouble getting tickets, so it is still very popular here in Leeds!! I was a little disappointed with the last ...

Diamond review  Ah, Mr. Bond. We've been expecting you... again.

Advantages: Brosnan, Berry, Cleese, all the usual Bond gubbins
Disadvantages: Madonna's song and Madonna's acting

Happy birthday, Mr. Bond. What can I possibly say about the newest James Bond movie? Probably nothing new, that's for sure - Bond opinions are like Bond movies. All the same elements are there, the only difference being the styles of the authors, just ...

SEX FOR DINNER, DEATH FOR BREAKFAST

Advantages: It's James Bond, isn't it?
Disadvantages: Nothing terribly new here

I have this kind of love/hate relationship with James Bond films. When a new one comes along, it’s always a bit of an event, and I will normally make a trip to the cinema to experience it. New Bond films are always infinitely enjoyable, because they ...

Connery apart, the best Bond ever

Advantages: Great action, stunts, nice humour, good baddies (if you get my meaning) and Halle Berry!
Disadvantages: Double entendres are more 'worthy' of a Carry-on film

Now, to put this review in context, I have to tell you that I am not a particular fan of Bond. I’ve seen most of the movies but by no means all, and only two of them at the cinema. It was only because of a "2-for-1" offer at our local Odeon and a la ...

I've Never Liked You Mr. Bond

Advantages: Has all the right elements, nice nostalgia trip in an "ooh that was in..." kinda way, some good action, new gadgets, umm it's Bond you'll watch anyway
Disadvantages: Brosnan seems bored, Madonna is in it, baddies are dull, sets are beyond the scope of the expertise to make them 'real', feels like an 'event' wannabee from a director who doesn't understand

I saw Vin Diesel's 007 wannabee 'xXx' earlier this year and loved it even if it was decidely lame-brained and cheesy. I also saw the trailers for the new Bond movie 'Die Another Day' and thought it actually might be worth checking out which is something o ...
