In Reply to: RE: Rank the 25 Bond Films posted by RGA on October 17, 2021 at 23:36:02
Ranking the Bond movies is not something I could do with any certainty but 'Thunderball' is much better than #18 (and imo much better than 'Octopussy'). Also, as much as I liked Timothy Dalton as Bond, I never took to well to 'License to Kill' (except the theme song).
Thunderball bored me to tears - I tried to watch it again and shut it off.
I know some folks like it and Octopussy is usually ranked near the bottom but I found it found it more fun (albeit ridiculous).
Same here. Did not like Thunderball but liked Octopussy a lot.I enjoyed Octopussy on the large screen a lot more than on the small.
My favorite strangely is George Lazenby.
Ah yes George Lazenby--in the Documentary on how he got the Bond job--he relates --and they show a"reconstruction" of how the producers demanded to know whether prospective "Bonds " are Gay or not.
So he received knock on his Hotel door the night before the Audition to be confronted by serious looking gentleman in a suit /overcoat hat and clipboard accompanied by a suggestively dress young woman.
Upon entering the Room George was told he had orders to have sex with the young lady while the
Suit watched and took notes on his clipboard.
Lazenby was taken aback with this and although at first reluctant-did partake when he was told --
agree or loose the casting.
This episode is portrayed in quite a funny way in the Video aspect of the Doco-- George gives running commentary while doing his bit for Art(?)--ha!
The Documentary is worth seeing in its entirety --he is very funny actually.
Always liked this bit. Jed Bartlett the president on "On Her Majesty's Secret Service."
