7 Bloggers cast their votes and the following lineup are the results.
Not everyone is a fan of the James Bond movies – l ‘ll not say ‘rather astonishingly’ as l overheard someone say recently, because it’s a very specific genre within the Action films genre – you’re either a diehard fan of Ian Flemming’s written works and therefore a devoutly devoted film buff to boot to support the various Bonds or quite simply you are not. Many are fans purely of the books themselves whilst many more love the film and others still enjoy both.
Everyone has a favourited Bond, Villian, Girl and even a favourited actor portraying Bond. – admittedly l don’t – l have liked all of the Bonds but l do think Daniel Craig brings more of a ruggedness to the table – the sort of Bond l would expect in today’s world.
Whilst Sean Connery brought a rough suaveness, Roger Moore introduced a typical upper lipped comical aptitude. Timothy Dalton was considered a popular Bond whilst George Lazenby merely a stand in and as for Pierce Brosnan – in many ways he was for me an old fashioned Bond, maybe too old fashioned, maybe too Roger Moore Bond.
Best villians for me would have to be quite possibly Jaws from The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker and Ernst Stavro Blofeld who has appeared in several Bond films.
The best Bond girls, mm — Vesper Lynd – Casino Royal, Pussy Galore – Goldfinger and Octopussy – Octopussy [although Maud Adams did in fact portray two Bond Girls – Andrea Anders from The Man With The Golden Gun.
Who is considered the best ever Bond 007? Some say Sean Connery, others say Daniel Craig and some even say Timothy Dalton. The truth is and always will be up to you!
