One of the best Bond movies ever Amazing for Hays code era Did Robarts die at the end? *spoiler* So the Bond series ended So disgusting for black people Could it be that it was Joss main target to get himself killed? Could it be that Kates father was a villain too? So all lefties are pedos CG is destroying Bond ... or thats what the crybabies haven destroyed already By far the best Godzilla movie since the original View all posts >

By FAR the best Bond movie ever. And I indeed prefer Roger Moore as James Bond (the only actor playing Bond for sane humans :) ). And indeed Lazenby wasnt the reason why this was the best Bond movie ever (with absolutely no competition at all). Instead he was a good Bond actor (but not even close to Moore or Brosnan). But thats also the reason why this was such a huge Bond movie. Bond wasnt the only focus of this movie. Telly Savalas was an great Bond villain. But Diana Rigg was simply awesome. She simply carried that movie to a complete different level and why this became a believable touching story. Combined with one of the best scripts and soundtrack of all Bond movies this almost was a piece of art. And no .... Casino Royale isnt a comparison at all. Craig isnt Bond. He simply is too dumb and cant act at all. But also the female lead character wasnt a huge actress after all. Combined with one of the most boring scripts ever it became simply a waste of time and money. Its such a wasted opportunity that Lazenby didnt played Bond again in DAD. It would have been awesome watching Bond hunting the killer of his only real love. Instead we got a horrible script and Connery being there only cause he needed money for the scotland movement. Lazenby should have played Bond in DAF for sure. Connery simply destroyed that movie (he and that horrible script wirters). With Lazenby it would have been as deep a story as OHMSS. That would have been a real Bond movie compared with this pseudo deep Bourne movies with Craig. Lazenby as a 60s actor also would have fitted in the 60s themed LALD and TMWTGG. Thos movies are as misplaced in ther 60s as possible. Yes, LALD rides on the Shaft wave and TMWTGG on the Bruce Lee wave (and got the solar power theme). But at their core both were 60s movies at its worst. A modern actor like Moore couldnt save the,. But perhaps a 60s actor like Lazenby would have fitted in thos movies. But starting with TSWLM noone else then the iconic Roger Moore could have played Bond. The 70s and 80s were the peak of Bond movies and human society. Everything was modern, innovative and ironic. Old actors like Dalton or Connery wouldnt have have fit in such movies at all. Thats why Roger Moore saved the Bond franchise. He stopped portraying Bond as a serial killer (paid by the government) and made him into a hero (everything else is just watching a drunken assasin killing people slowly. And thats something only lunatics prefer). On top of that he mixed the correct amount of irony so that this movies became excitement again (they already were excitement once with movies like Goldfinger or YOLT). There are also so called Bond fans which dont get that the Bond of Fleming is nothing else then a relict of the Cold war. Of a drunken writer whom was rooted in the 50s (and nowhere else). Everyone dreaming about a character as useless as this Bond should thinking about getting a therapy. Cause no sane human likes such a character. DAF would have been such an amazing revenge movie with Lazenby still playing Bond. Instead we got an aging Connery with absolutely no believable motivation. Yes, its the same Bond, but Connery isnt the same actor. They tried some sort of revenge story with DAF, but that didnt worked at all. LALD (Shaft-based) and TMWTGG (Bruce Lee-based) would have been also better with a real action actor like Lazenby. Beside that thos 2 movies are 60s-themed (who gave a sh** about a assasin gun duel in a mid 70s movie?). But starting with TSWLM Lazenby would have been a relict of the 60s, not fitting into the charming and ironic 70s and 80s. Noone else then Moore could play Bond from TSWLM until AVTAK. OMG, its a joke, cause the audience had to deal with a different actor playing Bond. No there is no canon telling that Bond istn one person. Learn to live with simple facts. OHMSS was by far (!!!) the best Bond movie ever. The wannabe serious movies Craig made were never Bond movies at all. They were as dumb as possible Bourne clones (the most obvious copycat since the karate scenes in Mand With The Golden Gun during the Bruce Lee wave). Therefor Lazenby is indeed lightyears ahead of the dumb character Craig "played". Cause its funny and its brighten your day. So if your life is full of hate and depression .... then this movie isnt made for you. Get a brain, fascist. You are so incredible dumb and full of hate. You dont even realize it. You are nothing else then part of the problem of our society. And all you have is flame war against a center user. So .... get a life too. Race doesnt matter. Hate and idiocy matters. Therefor you are the problem. Not cause of your pointless skin color. - No, a cliche isnt racist. Its just a common code that all people understand. Noone beside you thinks for a second that all indians are eating monkey brain all day for real! - Millions of people outside India watching Bollywood movies. They are full of cliches and therefor easy fun to watch and enjoy. Its one of the fastest growing movie industries out there. And no, noone from Switzerland even gives a sh*t about this cliches they are using in there movies. Cause ..... its a cliche, not reality! Learn to differ thos two things. Cause they have nothing in common at all. Its not only that. Zizek compared this behaviour with the stalinists in the USSR. Every regime opponent was shown as mentally instable. Therefor opposition against the tyrrany meant, in this misanthropic view of the world, that you had a problem with your mental wellness and therefor you had to be cured. Stalinists and fascists arent that far positioned from one another. Canadian government is a bunch of hatefilled fascists. They hate their people and they hate therefor democracy. Time for the people to fight against this tyrrany. View all replies >
