outside of star wars, bond might just be my favorite franchise of movies. i have all of them on dvd except "on her majesty's secret service" and "live and let die" - only because i couldn't find those two back when they were available. now they are only available in a box set, with 4 or 5 other bond movies that i already have... so it looks like i won't be adding them to my collection any time soon...  >:(

favorite bond movie?
tie between dr. no and goldfinger

favorite bond?
sean connery all the way

favorite bond girl?
i love the old school bond stuff the best, but who can resist denise richards as dr. christmas jones in the world is not enough?

aston marin db5 from goldfinger:
it had the following features.
- hydraulic rams, front and back (sequence not shown in film)
- bulletproof glass in all windows
- armoured rear shield which can raise to give extra protection to the back of the car
- revolving english, french and swiss licence plates - one of my favorite all time bond gadgets!!
- high powered oil-jet in rear light clusters
- device at the rear to drop nails (this device was not shown, to avoid encouraging children)
- pipe to shoot smoke from the rear of the car
- ben-hur style wheel-cruncher in front nearside wheel
- mobile phone in driver’s door panel (not shown in goldfinger)
- weapons tray beneath the drivers seat (also not shown in goldfinger)
- onboard radar screen for tracking homing device across the world

favorite bond gadget?
the briefcase in "from russia with love" - equipped with a small knife concealed in the side, 20 rounds of ammo, 50 gold sovereigns, an ar7 sniper's rifle and a canister of tear gas which would explode if the case is opened the wrong way. either that or the car that had the anti-theft device of exploding when someone attempted to steal it, but i don't remember which movie (or car) that was.

To be brutally honest I've only really seen 5 or 6 Bond movies as well.  They are good and all I just never really got into them...Live and let Die, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The Man With The Golden Gun and one other

I have been watching every now and then parts of them on Spike...they are way too bloody long though at 3hrs with commercials every 10 minutes.

I'm like you, Scott--I've seen a few Bond movies, and they're okay, but they've never done anything for me at all.  I know I've seen Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough, and one of the Timothy Dalton flicks (I think it was The Living Daylights) in the theatres.

I own two Bond DVDs:  GoldenEye, which I got only because it was cheap and I wanted to see how faithful it was to the video game (or vice versa, I should say, even though I played the game long before I ever saw the movie); and Tomorrow Never Dies, because at the time it came out ('99, I think), it was a kick-ass DVD.

But I don't really care about the franchise at all.  I still don't think I've ever seen a Connery or Roger Moore Bond flick all the way through, and I really couldn't care less to.  Just not my type of thing.
