James Bond 007: revisiting Goldfinger

22 February 2015 10:06 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sean Connery as Bond. Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore. Auric Goldfinger. Oddjob too. Our 007 lookbacks arrive at the iconic Goldfinger...

For many this is the Bond film. The quintessential Bond facing the ultimate villain who utters the greatest line midway through the most iconic scene. Plus you have the coolest henchman, the best car, the most memorable death, the loudest song, and the Bond girl with the silliest name. Plus Honor Blackman could easily lay a claim to being the premier leading lady. While Goldfinger can’t claim all the aforementioned categories, there’s little doubt that the film is a peak, a marrying of critical acclaim and popular appeal rarely achieved since.

The Villain: Monumental. A hugely charismatic figure and the most jovial of baddies, the Big Man utterly dominates the film. He interacts with Bond perhaps more than any other antagonist: over golf, cocktails and, immortally, beneath a laser. »

Of Human “Bond”-age: Top Ten Actors That Had Played James Bond

20 February 2015 2:59 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sure, there have been countless articles detailing the debonair men that portrayed the world’s most famous superspy in Ian Fleming’s creation of Agent 007 (a.k.a James Bond). And of course there have been many debates arguing who is considered the best Bond of them all (yes…I concur with the majority of the Sean Connery census that he is the ideal licensed to kill Lothario of them all). Plus, the listing of who’s the better Bond from top to bottom is always a lively discussion among Agent 007 aficionados.

Well, here is one more list to join the fray in terms of examining the actors that carried the action-packed load in bringing Fleming’s dashing Danger Man into the forefront of adventure, mystery, travel and romance. In Of Human “Bond”-age: Top Ten Actors That Had Played James Bond we will take a look at the actors »

Spectre Ending Will Be A Cliffhanger For Part 2?

12 February 2015 4:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures

There were stories and rumours that the new James Bond movie Spectre was going to be the first of a two-film story at least since the time of Skyfall’s release. Lately, this had been denied, or at least downplayed, but I’d always heard conflicting things on the grapevine.

Now, though, the well-connected Film Divider have said that it’s so, and convinced me, for once and for all. They say Spectre is going to lead directly into another Bond film.

Adding this to what I’ve heard over the last couple of years, that means this first film is going to establish Ernst Stavro Blofeld, put Bond in a great position of weakness, shake things up at MI6 and then leave us all hanging for a couple of years until they can get the gang back together and make the next movie.

Forever episode 14 review: Hitler On The Half Shell

4 February 2015 12:57 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Forever focuses on character rather than plot to its detriment in this latest Nazi-themed investigation...

This review contains spoilers.

1.14 Hitler On The Half Shell

Sometimes writing a TV or film review you can go directly to the source of a problem and identify exactly what’s wrong. But with Hitler On The Half Shell I’m sure that something was amiss, but damned if I can actually point out what is was precisely. For want of a better expression, it just didn’t flow. All the character moments seemed awkwardly forced, and all the reveals seemed painfully obvious.

I'm not sure why, but this wasn’t the best Forever episode we’ve had recently, and it left this reviewer distinctly underwhelmed.

The inspiration for the story is that of Cornelius Gurlitt, a man who hoarded more than 1,500 works of art, many stolen from Jewish people during WWII, and hidden until almost seventy years later. »

Watch Sean Connery In Sidney Lumet's The Offence. Coming To Masters Of Cinema In April.

29 January 2015 8:30 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

In their efforts to woo Sean Connery back to play James Bond one more time in Diamonds Are Forever, United Artists agreed to green-light two projects of the Scotsman's choosing, no questions asked. The first of those was The Offence, a gritty downbeat British cop drama - Connery's third collaboration with Sidney Lumet. The film was such a change of pace for Connery that audiences stayed away in droves. In fact, United Artists were so unhappy with the project that they reneged on their deal and refused to finance a promised second project for Connery.The unfair treatment of The Offence cannot be overstated, and as anyone who has seen the film will attest, it's a tough, impressive piece of work that exploits a whole new...

22 January 2015 10:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Does Adele have a new mission to sing for James Bond again? The British songstress, 26, who won an Oscar for her theme song for the franchise's last installment, Skyfall, is rumored to be working on Spectre. According to The Daily Mirror, she was flown to Los Angeles to record potential new music for the film. Daniel Craig, who has begun filming in Europe, has lauded the singer's talent. "I cried," Craig said about Adele's work on Skyfall. "From the opening bars I knew immediately, then the voice kicked in, and it was exactly what I'd wanted from the beginning. »

Fascinating Facts About The James Bond Film "The Living Daylights"

22 January 2015 3:35 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

It was in 1987 that the "new" James Bond, Timothy Dalton, made his debut as 007 in "The Living Daylights". It was a troubled production to bring to the screen, given the fact that Pierce Brosnan had been signed to play the role of Bond only to be thwarted by a contractual clause relating to his NBC TV series "Remington Steele". Dalton was the fourth actor to play 007 on the big screen, if you don't count David Niven in the 1967 spoof version of "Casino Royale". He followed in the paths of Sean Connery, George Lazenby and Roger Moore. Dalton is generally credited for bringing Bond back to earth in terms of downplaying the overt comedy that had characterized the series since Connery's final Bond film for Eon Production, "Diamonds Are Forever" in 1971. The good folks at the MI6 web site provide a wealth of interesting trivia relating to all things "Daylights". Click »

Forever episode 13 review: Diamonds Are Forever

14 January 2015 2:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Forever finally gets around to a Jo-centric episode, but are we any the wiser about her character at the end of it?

This review contains spoilers.

1.13 Diamonds Are Forever

(Incidentally, this episode makes no allusions or references to the 1971 Bond movie of the same name, starring Sean Connery.)

It seems somewhat incredible that it has taken thirteen episodes to actually get a Jo-centric story, which is what Diamonds Are Forever sets out to provide. I’d be misleading you to say that I wasn’t disappointed about what it contained, which really didn’t do what one might reasonably expect. 

Given that Jo Martinez is the episode's focus, do we know anything more about her at the end than we did at the start? The shadow hanging over her regarding her husband’s death isn’t news, and during the proceedings she doesn’t progress significantly in dealing with it. »

Review: "The Art Of Robert McGinnis" By Robert McGinnis And Art Scott (Titan Books)

10 January 2015 5:23 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Mark Cerulli

Robert McGinnis

For fans of movies of the 1960s and ’70s, his name ranks up there with the stars who made the major studio films of that era. Even though he didn’t actually “make” movies, his work most definitely did. Best known as the artist behind the “classic” James Bond posters, McGinnis worked for almost every publisher and major magazine for decades, putting his distinctive stamp on a huge, well, body of work, which is fully (and gloriously) represented in The Art of Robert E. McGinnis, a lush 176-page hardback now on sale from Titan Books. Since McGinnis is one of the most influential and iconic movie poster artists of the 20th Century, Cinema Retro was pleased to see him honored in this way.

The book starts with McGinnis’s journeyman beginnings in the 1950s Cincinnati and New York advertising scenes, where he toiled away on »
