Roger Moore ranks himself as the fourth best Bond

29 January 2015 2:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Roger Moore has been reflecting on his time as Ian Fleming’s super spy James Bond during a chat with Fox News, and as the conversation turned to current 007 Daniel Craig, Moore took the opportunity to chime in on the debate over who’s the best Bond.

“I believe [Daniel Craig is] an excellent Bond,” said Moore. “He’s much stronger than I am. I think he does a hell of a good job of it. He and Sean are, I think, undoubtedly the best Bonds.”

Asked where he’d rank himself, Moore responded: “I think a little bit behind George Lazenby, I suppose.”

So, it seems Moore isn’t much of a fan of Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan

How would you rank Moore as Bond? Let us know your thoughts…

Repressionistic Cinema

28 January 2015 9:29 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Let's look at what's trending. 'Serious' cinema reigns; we need realism, we need our James Bond gritty. The playfulness of Errol Flynn's multi-color Robin Hood has been traded out for the brawny blood spilling Russell Crowe. Exit color, enter the blue hued sordid filter of late. Now notice this is very new. Pierce Brosnan surfed a Tsunami in Die Another Day, and that was just recently in 2002. Now Daniel Craig's Bond is struggling with old age, bad cardio, and a rusty shot? We've come a long ways from the 007 who rescued bikini laden damsels while fending off eye patched bad guys. 

The old Burton Batman went from surrealist nightmare, to Christopher Nolan crime thriller. Superman began a lighthearted ass-kicker, and became an isolated brood who gradually unclosets his powers (the red of his cape can barely manage the aforementioned depressing blue palette, it looks purple). So what's that say of an audience exactly? »

10 Actors Who Could Be The Next James Bond

22 January 2015 12:51 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/Columbia Pictures

With anticipation for Spectre building up a nice head of steam, the elephant in the room over where to go next is slowly rearing its giant head. And the big question is, who’s going to be the face of it all.

Back with Casino Royale, Daniel Craig took on a character that looked dead in the water and somehow dragged him kicking and screaming into the modern age. He’s tied into the next two films, but after that he’ll be leaving the franchise. And whoever wants to fill those shoes is going to have their work cut out.

Beyond the plot, beyond the gadgets, and beyond the theme tune, the casting of the next James Bond is the key to ensuring the continued success of the franchise. A man who has been seen in so many incarnations since first being typed out by Ian Fleming »

Take That want to write James Bond theme song

22 January 2015 11:02 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Take That want to write a James Bond theme. The musical trio - featuring Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald - are currently promoting their new song 'Get Ready For It', which they recorded for the upcoming film 'Kingsman: The Secret Service', and have confessed they are keen to be involved with the music for the 24th spy film, 'Spectre', as well. Howard said: ''I would love to write a Bond theme!'' The movie - which is scheduled to be released in November - will see Daniel Craig reprise his role as James Bond, and although details of the cast have been confirmed, the makers have remained tight-lipped over who will feature on the much-anticipated soundtrack. Earlier this week, Mark Ronson admitted any involvement in the project is ''every little boy's dream'', while Lana Del Rey and Sam Smith have also been suggested as serious possibilities. »

How Movie Franchise Brands Appear Everywhere

18 January 2015 3:16 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

In the golden age of cinema, a movie could stand on its own. Old Hollywood was all about the films and nothing else. Stars were the commodities and movies were the products – the industry began and ended with what was put on the silver screen.

However, the blockbuster culture of the 1980s repositioned films as the centre point of a large orbit of merchandise. Soon, a film was not a success unless it became a franchise. It was no longer just about the box office returns but how many tie-in lunch boxes or coffee mugs were sold.

Movie merchandise is still expanding to this day and every new product, medium or technology is accompanied by a wave of tie-in material. These days it is tie-in video games which have perhaps become the most lucrative.

These extensions of movie franchises are becoming so self-sufficient that they are now produced independently of their film equivalent. »

Melissa McCarthy and Jude Law enter the Spy game in red-band trailer

13 January 2015 2:48 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

May’s theatrical release of Spy looks to be a welcome palette cleanser before director Sam Mendes and star Daniel Craig bring back their moody James with Spectre – a.k.a. Bond 24 – in November. 

We’ve always wanted Jude Law to play a dapper, very British spy. If the James Bond franchise won’t let him play 007, at least this summer’s Spy will give us a small taste of what could have been.

In SpyMelissa McCarthy teams up once again with director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) for another odd-girl-out situation comedy. This time McCarthy is Susan Cooper, the brain behind Law and Jason Statham’s brawn.

Seemingly meant for an unordinary life, Susan sits safely behind a desk as a CIA analyst, assisting the agency’s in-field agents via Bluetooth – sort of the Q to Law and Statham’s 007. But when a femme fatale (Rose Byrne »

Marvel vs. 007: Why Coulson is more of a hero than Bond

10 January 2015 3:38 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

[This article tries to avoid any major spoilers, and so provides more of a general overview. Most specific plot points are implied, so while the article is not guaranteed to be 100% spoiler-free, it covers things which are generally considered common knowledge, and so most of the main plot points should be left intact.]

In the UK, both Skyfall and The Avengers (or Avengers Assemble) are being shown on television tonight on different channels at overlapping times, so fans will only be able to watch one. (That would seem to provoke a reaction like, 'I'm not going to choose between my favourite actor to play James Bond and my favourite writer! That's insane troll logic!')

Bond and Marvel are two of the biggest franchises in the world at the moment, with each set to release their next instalment this year (Spectre and Avengers: Age of Ultron). This being the internet, the default response would be to pit the two against each other, as if one could only be a fan of one franchise, not both. The prepondance of alternative viewing options, like DVDs, TV repeats, etc. ultimately render such a discussion moot, in the colloquial sense of the word, meaning redundant. However, it's »

Spectre: James Bond film refused permission to film car chase in Italy

9 January 2015 7:20 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spectre has been refused permission to film a car chase in Rome.

Producers of the James Bond film had hoped to film the high octane scenes in the Italian capital, but city officials are concerned that filming may result in damage to prestigious monuments.

Federica Galloni told the Il Messaggero newspaper: "We have not authorised the sequence at the Quattro Fontane (Four Fountains) because it is too fragile in terms of architecture."

She explained that producers have been asked to use special effects for the sequence, as the fountains are undergoing expensive renovation works.

In the proposed scenes, Daniel Craig's Bond would drive his Aston Martin through the city's streets in a night-time chase.

A synopsis for the film reads: "A cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation.

Review: Kingsman - The Secret Service Delivers An Entertaining Ride

9 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The world of espionage has become a bit dour of late. Our postmodern proclivities have caught up with us, and thanks to our impossible missions, our Bourne fascinations and a Daniel Craig-ified Bond, we've lost a little bit of the silly when it comes to our secret service cinema.Leave it to Matthew Vaughn, then, to shake and/or stir a wee bit of self-aware fun into the mix. For remember, before he took the mutants to school or kicked some ass with avenging heroes, he baked a Layer Cake that intro'd much of the world to that Craig guy mentioned earlier. The chops are there, it seems, so does it all pay off?Well, sure. Kingsman is a film that hides nothing about its intentions, practically...

James Bond: 10 Biggest Fashion Disasters

8 January 2015 2:02 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures/MGM

When one thinks of James Bond, the suave super spy with a licence to kill, the image is normally of the perfectly turned out gentleman in a fitted tuxedo, or a Tom Ford bespoke suit. Even when in action, Bond can usually be depended upon to look stylish in sharply creased fatigues or fashionably black combat gear. However, throughout Agent 007’s 52 years on screen his standards have sometimes slipped, in a surprisingly alarming fashion on occasion. For every Brioni suit and silk shirt there’s also been a dubious blouson or a sports coat with checks you could play noughts and crosses on.

Not all of these fashion disasters are Bond’s fault – tastes change and what might have been cutting edge in the seventies, such as a fondness for beige, appear awful to modern eyes. Just remember, however, that audiences in 2050 might make the same of »
