Pierce Brosnan Doesn’t Think That He Was A Good James Bond

15 April 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though not the best James Bond, Pierce Brosnan was far from the worst. In fact, I count Goldeneye as one of my favorite films of the franchise and was always a big fan of the actor’s portrayal of the iconic character. It turns out that not everyone feels that way though, as Brosnan himself says that he can’t even watch his 007 films as he doesn’t think that they were “good enough.”

“I felt I was caught in a time warp between Roger and Sean…It was a very hard one to grasp the meaning of, for me. The violence was never real, the brute force of the man was never palpable. It was quite tame, and the characterization didn’t have a follow-through of reality, it was surface. But then that might have had to do with my own insecurities in playing him as well,” said the actor. »

Pierce Brosnan thinks his James Bond movies were "quite tame"

15 April 2014 2:20 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

I've enjoyed Daniel Craig as James Bond, however I have a special place in my heart for Pierce Brosnan's Bond flicks, especially Goldeneye. To me, they feel more like Bond movies than the recent ones with Craig. I'm not saying Pierce Brosnan was a better Bond than Daniel Craig, but his movies are definitely more like the older ones than Craig's. But apparently Pierce Brosnan doesn't like watching himself as Bond. The actor recently told The Telegraph »

Pierce Brosnan Says He Was Not Good Enough as James Bond

14 April 2014 6:39 PM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

While promoting his upcoming "The Love Punch" heist film, Pierce Brosnan spoke about playing James Bond in "Goldeneye," "Tomorrow Never Dies," "The World is Not Enough," and "Die Another Day." "I felt I was caught in a time warp between Roger [Moore] and Sean [Connery]," he said. "It was a very hard one to grasp the meaning of, for me. The violence was never real; the brute force of the man was never palpable. It was quite tame, and the characterization didn.t have a follow-through of reality -- it was surface. But then that might have had to do with my own insecurities in playing him as well." When asked if he ever rewatched his Bond films, Brosnan replied: "I have no desire to watch myself as James Bond. Because it's just never good enough -- it's a horrible feeling." »

Actor, who played Ian Fleming's secret agent in four Bond films, describes his portrayal of 007 as 'tame'

Pierce Brosnan has dismissed his own run as James Bond "never good enough" and admitted he hates watching himself as 007.

In an interview with the Telegraph, the Irish actor said he struggled to get under the skin of the suave British sleuth, who he played in four films between 1995's Goldeneye and 2002's Die Another Day.

Brosnan: My Bond Was "Never Good Enough"

13 April 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In an interesting admission, actor Pierce Brosnan says that he believes his work as James Bond was "never good enough".

Reflecting back on his time as 007 over four films from 1995 to 2002, the actor tells UK tabloid The Telegraph:

"I have no desire to watch myself as James Bond. 'Cause it's just never good enough. It's a horrible feeling...

I felt I was caught in a time warp between Roger and Sean. It was a very hard one to grasp the meaning of, for me. The violence was never real, the brute force of the man was never palpable.

It was quite tame, and the characterisation didn't have a follow-through of reality, it was surface. But then that might have had to do with my own insecurities in playing him as well."

Pierce Brosnan: 'I was never good enough as James Bond'

12 April 2014 4:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Pierce Brosnan believes that he was "never good enough" in the role of James Bond.

Brosnan played James Bond in GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day, before being replaced by Daniel Craig in 2005.

He told The Telegraph: "I felt I was caught in a time warp between Roger and Sean. It was a very hard one to grasp the meaning of, for me.

"The violence was never real, the brute force of the man was never palpable. It was quite tame, and the characterisation didn't have a follow-through of reality, it was surface. But then that might have had to do with my own insecurities in playing him as well.

Asked if he has revisited the movies, he replied: "I have no desire to watch myself as James Bond. 'Cause it's just never good enough. It's a horrible feeling."

Famke Janssen Locked For ‘Taken 3′

13 March 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Famke Janssen has closed her deal to reprise her role in Taken 3, opposite Liam Neeson and Maggie Grace. Another film seemed a natural, since the franchise has done more than $600 million in global box office. Janssen has so far been limited to playing the helpless housewife, and I am not sure if it has occurred to the filmmakers at Europa, but Janssen has a very particular set of skills she has acquired over a very long career, skills that would make her a nightmare for the bad guys who show up in these movies. The Dutch actress first came to prominence as the femme fatale Xenia Onatopp in the James Bond film Goldeneye, as she was cracking guys’ spines like walnuts with her aerobicized thighs. As X-Men’s Phoenix, she nearly destroyed the world with her powers. Neeson’s got to be tired by now, so isn’t »

Liam Neeson explains why he turned down the role of James Bond for GoldenEye

10 March 2014 3:37 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With films such as Taken, Unknown and his latest offering Non-Stop, Irish actor Liam Neeson has reinvented himself as an action star over the past couple of years. However, had things been different, he could have made this transition much earlier, with the producers of the James Bond franchise eyeing Neeson to take over from Timothy Dalton for 1995's GoldenEye. Speaking to the Hull Daily Mail, Neeson has explained why he passed on the role of the super spy 007:

"I was heavily courted, let’s put it that way, and I’m sure some other actors were too. It was about 18 or 19 years ago and my wife-to-be [Natasha Richardson] said, ‘If you play James Bond we’re not getting married!’ And I had to take that on board, because I did want to marry her."

With Timothy Dalton retiring from the role of Bond in 1994, Eon Productions eventually turned to Pierce Brosnan, »

Big turning points in the James Bond movie franchise

20 February 2014 4:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Michael Reed 21 Feb 2014 - 05:56

We take a look at some potential turning points that could have altered the Bond legacy significantly...

007 lists resurrection amongst his hobbies, but speculation is our game today. Your own ideal fantasy James Bond film probably depends on what sort of Bond you're into. If you like serious Bond, you probably consider it a crying shame that Timothy Dalton didn't get to make at least one more film. A fair proportion of the fandom consider Never Say Never Again to be one of the worst of the series, so for them, rolling the dice on a 1976 production with a different actor and a more exciting script would have been worth it.

Furthermore, a Sony Pictures produced rival film with, say, Liam Neeson in the late 1990s could have been fascinating. How about Connery returning to the role in his 60s? All of these possibilities »

17 February 2014 3:27 PM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Harry Styles likes to relax with yoga and enjoyed a yoga break on a recent holiday with Gary Barlow and James Corden. The three enjoyed a break at Ian Fleming's old Goldeneye home. The late author penned many of James Bond's spy adventures at the Jamaican property, and the British trio took the chance to have a relaxing few days before a busy month professionally.

5 Dreaded Movies That Ended Up Being Great

6 February 2014 8:00 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

You’d think it would be self-evident that there’s no way to tell whether a movie is good or bad until actually seeing it, but it’s not always the case. Although it’s increasing in fervor lately, the anticipatory intensity leading up to a movie’s release has always swayed movie fans’ perception one way or the other. Sometimes the pre-conceived notions of a movie’s quality are accurate, sometimes things thought to be sure-thing masterpieces are anything but. Sometimes, things everyone spends months dreading turn out to be terrific; the stellar reviews for The Lego Movie indicate that it may very well be one of them, and even the Robocop remake, getting some positive early notices, might be one as well. Here are five more movies we all covered our heads for before seeing the light. Casino Royale Pierce Brosnan’s tenure as James Bond yielded one legit Bond classic (Goldeneye) and a handful »

Why was Casino Royale so successful?

31 January 2014 4:38 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The James Bond franchise has had its ups and downs over its 50 year run run, but where it came together for a lot of people after several missteps was the 21st entry.  Casino Royale was parallel to other successful reboots like Star Trek, Batman Begins, and X-Men: First Class which honored what had came before whilst injecting new life into their respective franchises.

Martin Campbell was chosen for the film which made sense because he had already cut his teeth on one of the more critically praised Brosnan Bond movies, GoldenEyeGoldenEye had come after a six year hiatus following Timothy Dalton resigning the role which essentially made GoldenEye a 90's version of Casino Royale.  Predictably Campbell delivered in spades, pulling in little bits of inspiration from Batman Begins and the Bourne movies to create a grittier, more realistic Bond, pushing the gadgets and supercars to the background.  The result »

Oren Moverman To Direct 'Time Out Of Mind' Starring Richard Gere

29 January 2014 2:26 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you've followed this blog, you already know how much we dig Oren Moverman.  He's the writer/director behind the duo of terrific dramas "The Messenger" and "Rampart," and while he's been brewing a few projects since (including the forthcoming Brian Wilson biopic "Love & Mercy," which he wrote and has Paul Dano and John Cusack set to star in), nothing has returned him behind the camera. Now that is set to change. Moverman is set to direct "Time Out Of Mind," and no, it's not a science fiction movie. Instead, it stars Richard Gere, and is based on a story by Jeffrey Caine ("The Constant Gardener," "GoldenEye"), about a New York man who tries to patch things up with his estranged daughter, all while struggling to get his life back on track after circumstances force him into a homeless shelter. It sounds like a potent matchup of solid material with a great director/star pairing, »

Producers Maintain Their Family Bond With 007

16 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In an era when studios are increasingly relying on franchises to boost their bottom lines, it’s no small feat to be the gatekeeper of the longest-running film series in Hollywood history.

For nearly two decades, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, the daughter and stepson of the late James Bond producer Albert “Cubby” Broccoli, have managed to keep the suave Agent 007 relevant to modern-day audiences in the face of significant competition from other high-octane action franchises — and studio turmoil that put Bond on hiatus more than once. The two have survived numerous regime changes at Bond’s home base, MGM, as they’ve fought to keep the Broccoli family business intact.

Broccoli, 53, and Wilson, 71, who reside in London and are being honored Jan. 19 by the Producers Guild of America with the David O. Selznick Award for lifetime achievement, have protectively watched over Bond as a team since 1995, and guarded »
