James Bond Museum Opens in the UK

4 April 2009 9:00 PM, PDT | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

Yours truly is a big fan of that point on the compass where movies and cars intersect, and I'm guessing there's lots of other film aficionados out there like myself. Hollywood's love affair with the automobile stretches from Fast & Furious all the way back to Bullitt, and even well before that. But there's one film franchise that has given us more drool-worthy cars than any other, and it's the one with the numerals 007 attached to it.

From the iconic Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger and Lotus Esprit S1 from The Spy Who Loved Me, to the '71 Ford Mustang Mach 1 from Diamonds are Forever and the current Aston Martin Dbs from Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, the Bond films have showcased a laundry list of cool metal.

Yesterday, Englishman Peter Nelson, a 48-year-old Bond prop collector and auto museum curator, opened The Bond Museum in England, housed in a former supermarket in Keswick, »

[DVD Review] Quantum of Solace

30 March 2009 12:18 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

After the meaty origin story Casino Royale, greeted with almost universal acclaim for its back to basics bravado, it would seem the honeymoon really is over for this latest reincarnation of cinema's longest running franchise. Looking to build on the accrued goodwill by refining the bloated Bond into something efficient enough to shed the anachronistic shackles, first time Bond director Marc Forster and scripter Paul Haggis have trimmed so much off the top as to render the series virtually emaciated and delivered a film as confounding as its nonsensical title.

Picking up right where Royale left off, Quantum opens hard and fast with Bond (Daniel Craig) weaving his bullet riddled Aston Martin in an out of traffic on a winding Sienna cliffside road while duly dispatching the customary bad guys in hot pursuit to deliver Mr. White for interrogation. It's an interrogation that's short-lived as an assassin is only too »

Concert Review: The New York Pops Plays The Music Of James Bond At Carnegie Hall

11 March 2009 1:18 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

The music of James Bond has topped the charts around the world, as evidenced by this rare Japanese 45 Rpm release of John Barry's famous theme song. By Lee Pfeiffer

Last Friday's tribute to the music of James Bond at Carnegie Hall was a magnificent evening of entertainment. The New York Pops, under the direction of conductor Carl Davis, did justice to the canon of great film themes that have characterized the 007 movies. To the relief of Bond fans, the Pops did nothing to "soup up" the arrangements of the familiar songs, opting instead to perform the traditional arrangements. The two hour-plus event managed to incorporate almost all of the main title themes which were played more or less in sequential order, and it was especially rewarding to hear Burt Bacharach's The Look of Love included, despite the fact that it derived from the mostly-detested 1967 slapstick version of Casino Royale. »

Join Cinema Retro At James Bond Double Feature, Loews Jersey City, This Weekend

29 January 2009 7:00 PM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

The landmark Loews Theatre in Jersey City, New Jersey will be holding a James Bond film festival. On Friday, January 30, the theater will show the 1974 007 film The Man With the Golden Gun. On Saturday, January 31, there will be a Bond double feature: For Your Eyes Only (1981) and Octopussy (1983). The event presents a rare opportunity to see the Roger Moore films on the big screen. As your humble Cinema Retro Editor-in-Chief, I'll be on-hand to introduce the double feature. My well-known dislike for Golden Gun is not the reason I won't be at the festival on Friday, but it does call to mind an amusing conversation I had with Christopher Lee, who starred as the villain Scaramanga (the film's only saving grace, aside from Maud Adams). Over lunch in London, he jokingly said, "I shouldn't talk to you any more, Lee - you said my Bond film was »
