Ranked: Every James Bond Film

29 November 2015 4:16 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Cinelinx honors one of the longest running movie franchises in history by ranking all the primary Bond films from worst to best.

Our month of James Bond comes to an end. For our grand finale, we're ranking all of the Eon Productions/MGM Studios films. That's 24 films in total, starting with 1961's Dr. No and ending with the latest, 2015's Spectre. During this time, the franchise has seen a lot of sucess, but also has had its fair share of miscues and issues with legal rights. Six actors have played James Bond himself, each with a unique take on the character that has, in turn, led to different styles of films. James Bond is originally based on the character created by British novelest Ian Flemming. Although many of the films borrow their titles from Flemming's novels, they tend to borrow few aspects from their respetive novels/short stories and have unique plots. »

Why Pierce Brosnan Didn't Like Spectre

17 November 2015 2:33 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Despite an initial onslaught of positive reviews, and the fact that it.s a money making juggernaut at the box office, the latest James Bond movie, Spectre, hasn.t been as warmly embraced as its predecessor, Skyfall. The movie teeters on a 63% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes (for comparison, Skyfall is 93%, and the audience score discrepancy is similarly wide), but it wasn.t just critics who have taken issue with Spectre, as one former James Bond, Pierce Brosnan, has added his voice to the chorus of disapproval. The star of Die Another Day, Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, and The World is Not Enough recently spoke to Hitfix about the upcoming home video release of his disaster film No Escape. When the subject of the new James Bond movie came up, he did not mince words, saying: I thought it was too long. The story was kind of weak . it could »

Pierce Brosnan Not A Fan Of "Spectre"

17 November 2015 12:28 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Despite healthy box-office, the latest James Bond film "Spectre" has ended up with a mixed reviews overall. Scoring a 60/100 on Metacritic and a 63% (6.4/10) on Rotten Tomatoes, that puts it only just above the 58/100 and 65% (6.1/10) respectively earned by current Bond star Daniel Craig's least liked film "Quantum of Solace" - and far behind both "Casino Royale" and "Skyfall" which scored stellar reaction.

Now, one former 007 has also expressed disappointment in the newest entry - Pierce Brosnan. Speaking with HitFix, Brosnan shared his review of the new film which praises Craig but mostly criticises the story and more specifically the pacing - a common complaint considering this was the longest Bond film to date:

"I was looking forward to it enormously. I thought it was too long. The story was kind of weak - it could have been condensed. It kind of went on too long. It really did.

['Spectre'] is neither fish nor fowl. »

GoldenEye Came Out 20 Years Ago! Ranking the Best of Pierce Brosnan's James Bond Lines

17 November 2015 7:15 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Pierce Brosnan was the fifth James Bond overall but he made history in his own way, becoming the first 007 of the 1990s and therefore turning a whole new generation onto Ian Fleming's suave secret agent. GoldenEye, the first of the four Brosnan Bond films, came out 20 years ago today if you can believe it, and the fact that there's a Bond movie in theaters right this minute only hammers home just how unusually enduring (not to mention, hard to kill) the character remains.  While Brosnan's Bond reported for duty in the relatively evolved year that was 1995, he was still very much of the old-timey, bed-the-babes, not-a-hair-out-of-place Bonds that came before. But his in-on-the-joke version combined the »

20 years ago today: 007 returned when ‘GoldenEye’ opened in theaters

17 November 2015 4:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

20 years ago today, “GoldenEye,” the 17th canon James Bond movie, opened in U.S. theaters. The film marked a new era in James Bond films: It was the first featuring Pierce Brosnan as the British spy, the first with Judi Dench in the role of M, and the first 007 movie made after the end of the Cold War. The fact that this was a new Bond for a new time was perhaps most apparent in the scene when we first see Dench’s M face-to-face with Brosnan’s Bond. She’s commanding, blunt, cold and — at this point — doesn’t like Bond. “I think you’re a sexist, misogynist dinosaur, a relic of the Cold War,” she tells him. Dench went on to play the head of MI6 in six more Bond films, plus a brief appearance in this year’s “Spectre.” Brosnan played Bond in four movies. If you »

'GoldenEye': 20 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the James Bond Classic

16 November 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

20 years later, Pierce Brosnan's first Bond movie is still his best.

After a six-year absence from the big screen, 007 returned with the very-90s, but very action-packed, "GoldenEye." Despite headlines in the press asking if the world needed James Bond anymore, audiences seemed to think it did -- they helped the film become a huge hit at the box office, spawning three more films for Brosnan and a popular Nintendo game.

In honor of the film's 20th (?!) anniversary on November 17, here are 20 things you may not know about one of 007's most popular missions.

1. Legal issues prevented MGM from getting a new Bond movie out after the tepid reaction to 1989's "License to Kill," grounding 007 for six years -- the longest wait in-between films in the franchise's history.

2. In 1990, before the title and plot were locked down, producer Michael G. Wilson contributed a treatment and "Wiseguy" writer Alphonse Ruggerio »

Top Ten James Bond Villains

15 November 2015 12:20 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Our month-long focus on James Bond continues with a look at the ten best Bond screen villains. Check it out!


A good Bond villain does not always make for a great Bond film, but it doesn’t hurt. It’s common knowledge that a film with good conflict will be more engaging to watch, and the conflict between the protagonist and antagonist is the driving factor of the James Bond franchise. Therefore, along with one of the most well-known and legendary protagonists of all time, the franchise is also home to some of the most well-known and legendary antagonists as well. This is a list that honors the best antagonists in the Bond franchise. They’re the ones that are the most creative, memorable, or relentless, all characteristics which help make their respected films that much better. They’re the ones that left the biggest impact on audiences and the franchise as a whole. »

Is James Bond Just a Code Name Handed Down to Different Agents?

12 November 2015 7:45 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 There’s been a fan theory going around for several years that James Bond 007 is just an alias used by many British Agents over the years. Cinelinx looks at the arguments for and against this theory.

 Is there a connection between the Sean Connery James Bond and the current Daniel Craig incarnation? Could they, in fact, be two MI6 Agents who’ve used the same alias as Agent 007, Aka James Bond? Have there been seven different people to carry the Bond name over the years, all claiming to be the genuine article? Does British Intelligence recruit a new 007 to replace the previous one if he is captured/quits/gets killed? Maybe so. Let’s look at the concept to see if the theory holds up under scrutiny.

 This idea has become popular in recent years but the genesis of it actually began way back in 1967. In the original film version of Casino Royale, »

NXPress #30: A look back at ‘Goldeneye 007’

10 November 2015 9:58 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

GoldenEye 007 was originally conceived as an on-rails shooter inspired by Sega’s Virtual Cop, before being redesigned as a free-roaming shooter. Highly revered by gamers worldwide, GoldenEye 007 is often credited with kick-starting the first-person shooter craze on consoles and if not for GoldenEye, a franchise like Call of Duty might never have been. This week we discuss the N64 classic along with Kingdom Hearts, and the unbelievable size of Xenoblade Chronicles X. Rick also announces the big news that he purchased a new console but we won’t say which. You’ll just have to listen and find out. All this and more.

Ranked: Every James Bond Title Sequence

8 November 2015 5:33 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Bond title sequences are an important tradition for the franchise. Join us as we count them down from worst to best.

The title sequence is a trademark of the Bond franchise. It sets the tone for the film while using artistry to bring important themes and ideas to audience’s periphery. It’s more than just guns and girls, it’s a calling card that gives the Bond films a sophistication and uniqueness that its competitors and impostors lack. Through the years, these sequences have become more complicated and sophisticated, but the goal is the same: wow the audience.  

Below we've listed the title sequences of all of the Eon Productions/MGM Studios films from worst to best based on the following criteria:

Song Rating = How good/memorable is the song?

Creativity = Have we seen it before?

Wow-Factor = The impact on the viewer.

Execution = How well made is it »

Film Feature: Bond, James Bond – Ranking the Bond Movies Worst to First, Including ‘Spectre’

7 November 2015 9:47 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – James Bond is back in his latest adventure, “Spectre,” but what about his movie life before this film? Spike Walters of ranks the 24 official James Bond films from worst to first, an overview of 007’s movie and cultural presence from 1962 through today.

The legacy of James Bond began in 1953, with the release of the first in a series of novels detailing the spy’s escapades, written by Ian Fleming. The British agent with a “license to kill” designation (007) was featured in 12 novels and two short story collections. In 1962, the first of the 24 official films – “Dr. No” – was released, starring Sean Connery, and began a series that maintains its popularity to this day. Many fans of the series consider Connery the essential James Bond, but many other actors followed him as Bond in the official film canon – George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and the current 007, Daniel Craig. »

‘Casino Royale’ a thrilling Bond movie that tries hard not to be a Bond movie

6 November 2015 10:34 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Casino Royale

Directed by Martin Campbell

Written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade & Paul Haggis

United Kingdom, USA, Czech Republic, and Germany, 2006

For reasons that escape me consciously, I’ve never been caught up in the James Bond phenomenon. I understand why the series holds such an allure to so many people—fast cars, beautiful women, cliffhanging action sequences, a dashing leading man, etc. And it’s not as if I’ve managed to live my life, to be on this planet for nearly 30 years, and not see a James Bond movie. However, until very recently, I’d only seen the movies where either Pierce Brosnan or Daniel Craig played 007. A year ago, out of sheer curiosity, I revisited a few of the Sean Connery-era Bond films, movies like Goldfinger and From Russia with Love, and found them more cheerfully antiquated than propulsive or purely entertaining.

Casino Royale, on the other hand, »

‘Never Say Never Again’ is a fun look at an alternate vision of Bond films, but nothing more

6 November 2015 10:21 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Never Say Never Again

Directed by Irvin Kershner

Written by Lorenzo Semple Jr.

United Kingdom, 1983

Never Say Never Again is, in many ways, the red-headed stepchild of the Bond family. Made by a different set of producers than the other 23 Bond films that had been made previously, the movie cannot be found on any Bond boxset, and really shares nothing with its fellow Bond films outside of the names of certain characters, as by 1983, Connery himself had long since hung up the tuxedo in favour of Roger Moore (whose Octopussy, which did come from Albert Broccoli and Co. , had been released earlier that very year, giving audiences a good chance to compare the two actors playing the same character). The primary question of this movie, then, becomes whether or not the Bond franchise benefits from being molded by a different pair of hands at its very core, and the answer »

The Best James Bond Films

5 November 2015 8:59 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Back in 2012, our staff decided to group together and come up with a list of the best films in the 007, James Bond franchise. With Spectre rolling out this weekend, we decided to republish the article. Let us know which is your favourite, and be sure to check out our review of Spectre here.

#1: From Russia With Love

Directed by Terence Young

Written by Richard Maibaum and Johanna Harwood

1963, UK

50 years later, and with twenty three “official” entries, From Russia With Love represents the very best of the Bond franchise. Skyfall is the closest to be considered, at best – almost equal to what was achieved in ’64 – but From Russia With Love is still unparalleled. Although it is the second in the series, and although it feels like no Bond film that followed, it is the film that solidifies all the Bond elements into a formula – a template that carries on, »

‘Die Another Day’ flounders amidst bare faced stupidity

5 November 2015 8:36 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Die Another Day

Directed by Lee Tamahori

Written by Neal Purvis (story) & Robert Wade

2002, UK

The end of Die Another Day’s first act provides a set up to what could potentially have been one of the most freshly original Bond installments, an opportunity to explore deliciously dark corners of the iconic spy’s psyche. Forward wind an hour and the last major set piece leading up to the film’s climax includes an invisible Aston Martin dodging a minigun and stinger missile shooting Jaguar in an ice castle and a CGI Bond surfing laser cannon induced tidal waves. Between time spent with faces buried in palms, the audience must have wondered exactly how it all went so wrong.

Twentieth Bond outing and the last performance in the series by fan favorite Pierce Brosnan, the expectation was that Lee Tamahori’s take on 007 would send the Irishman out on a »

Spectre – The Review

5 November 2015 4:10 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Director Sam Mendes was never going to meet expectations following Skyfall. Never. No matter what he did, no matter how hard he tried, Spectre was never going to satisfy hungry fans after previously delivering what many rank high among the best films in the 24 film franchise. Skyfall was a huge achievement for many fans of the series. In many ways, it felt like more of a reset for the series than Casino Royale. Audiences and fans applauded the most recent outing, even if it lacked as many of the stunts and gadgets that some have come to expect from the past two decades of James Bond films after the previous reset: Goldeneye. Sam Mendes was able to give the series a sense of prestige that had not been felt since… well… the Sean Connery days. That’s a pretty lofty achievement considering the series has been going for over 50 years. »

‘Tomorrow Never Dies’ – Bond 24/7

5 November 2015 3:00 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Tomorrow Never Dies

Directed by Roger Spottiswoode

Screenplay by Bruce Feirstein

1997, USA

Goldeneye may have been the first Bond made in the ’90s, but Tomorrow Never Dies is the first ’90s Bond. Finally liberated from the remnants of the Cold War, the Bond era entered the global media age where moguls are the madmen and manipulation is more powerful than money. In many ways, its an era that the character and the world has been unable to deny in this modern age, but one in which the series has adapted to admirably.

The second outing for Pierce Brosnan’s 007 finds him ensnared by a former flame, Terri Hatcher’s Paris Carver; the trophy wife to Elliot Carver, Jonathan Pryce’s arrogant, Rupert Murdoch like tycoon. Brosnan drops the inner turmoil of Goldeneye and makes his 007 lighter than air, a walking suit who has fun with his gadgets and more fun with the ladies, »
