Bond 24 will have an ‘instantly iconic’ henchman

The news has broken that the 24th film in the James Bond franchise is looking to cast a villain who is so unusual and different that they will become instantly iconic. This is an interesting step for the franchise to take. It’s in keeping with Skyfall‘s embracing of the past and of what is thought […]

Top 10 Bond Girls

It’s been a long time since I posted anything to do with Bond, too long in fact! In the lead up to Skyfall I posted a lot of Bond themed top tens but for some reason I missed off the women of Bond. Recently I thought it was about time to address that omission!  Read […]

Guest Post: Bond’s Darkest Moments

Originally posted on The Sporadic Chronicles:
I spoke to James over at Mr Rumsey’s Film Related Musings to give me the final post for my Bond run, which was a major success. I want to thank everyone who followed it and got involved with it and put their opinions out there. It was great fun,…

Skyfall – Review (Spoiler Free)

So the rumours really are true; James Bond is back on superb form. Skyfall really comes across like a Bond film of old; it has a classic feel to it that’s really endearing, and yet it still feels strikingly fresh and original.

Die Another Day – Reviewing the previous Bond anniversary celebration (Spoiler Warning)

Die Another Day starts out with one hell of a gutsy a move – Bond being captured, and then tortured and imprisoned for fourteen months was an extremely brave decision to make, and it really works for me. It’s a shame though that the filmmakers couldn’t have run with this idea and have tapped into […]

The Top Five Bond Villains

Today I’ll be ranking the top five Bond villains from throughout the 22 official films. Obviously there were a large amount of possible candidates but I’m confident in my list. Check it out: 5.

The Top Five Bond Girls

Today I’ll be ranking who, in my opinion, are the top five Bond girls from across the 22 official films. In order to make things a little easier for myself I’ve only included the women who are Bond’s allies, it’s a fairly common way of interrupting the term ‘Bond Girl’ anyway, and it will stop […]
