Nah, nowhere interesting, just a regular scar on his face wink

And Nick Carter being better than Roger Moore's potrayal of Bond, OUCH! grin
Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by MadMax1(f): 7:38pm On Aug 28, 2009
You read Nick Carter? grin I don't think the author's a day older than twelve.
Which would you rate as the best Bond outings? I think there are 22 now? There have been some memorable stories and villains and gals, yes?

actually,

blond= a male

blonde= a female


so simple, wats all the nouns and adjectives about, grin , wink

Sexist stereotype. . . . . .It is no longer in use to say blond=male or blonde=female.
Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by darqly(m): 8:22pm On Aug 28, 2009
Yes Mad max, with much shame and regret, I admit that I read Nick Carter albeit ages ago! shocked
My best Bond movie would still be OHMSS, I'm just drawn by the fast-pace of the movie and Kojak as Blofeld. The action was all over the place- Ski slopes, Sea shores, A bloody car rally grin

The real reason however is cos he fell in love- and the girl DIED cry
The other Bond flick I'd take over it is Live and Let Die(I can't ever forget the cry of Abobo- They spoke abit of yoruba in the cemetry scenes,really adulterated though)

And Mr Kananga,and Whisper(What a character!) And the Man who cannot die. grin

And yours??
Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by MadMax1(f): 8:42pm On Aug 28, 2009
lol we all read Nick Carter, we all know Hugo and Wilhemina; it's a skeleton in everyone's closet. grin

My fav's, of course, Casino Royale. Great Bond, great script,great cast,so-so villain,great action,great dialogue,GREAT Bond Girl. After that, it's From Russia With Love, Live and Let Die, The Spy Who Loved Me, Goldeneye and Goldfinger.

Lazenby ruined OHMSS for me, and it was a hell of a good script. Loved Live and Let Die; the hoodoo atmosphere, so diff from other Bond flicks, and there was a black love interest for Bond. I think Moore's the only Bond to go multi-racial that way. There was that freaky weird Grace Jones in the one with Christopher Walken as the villain. All the other Bonds went WASP. I hope to see a memorable black Bond girl; Halle doesn't count.

Yeah good ol Roger was a ladies man,race was no barrier. The venom Bond unleashed in casino royal was truly unprecedented,but I daresay craig pulled it off superbly! Its just that i'm still too attached to the earlier movies to allow this one much room at the top.

OHMSS is simply the best Bond movie ever. . . . . .I love Telly Savalas.
George Lazenby and his bride that was shot on their wedding day.
The movie was crisp. cheesy
Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by ayusco: 12:54pm On Aug 29, 2009
OHMSS was ok as a script but George Lazenby? undecided his potrayal of bond was awful yes roger moore was camp but atleast he had charm. daniel craig is the bizness(so far). best bond films are spy who loved me, live & let die, goldfinger, from russia with love, casino royale

some one mentioned nick carter (porn star/spy) grin

Bastid did more porn star-ing than spying lol, and he was always getting caught and getting laid in enemy territory. Yeye man.
Lazenby made OHMSS bomb. Talentless moon-faced hack wasted a good script and good music. EON went a-begging to Connery after that.
Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by vanitty: 2:20pm On Aug 29, 2009
You can't really blame Daniel Craig for the plot, tough act, e.t.c your bone of contention should be with the writers

Anyway Pierce Brosnan is definately the most amazing bond ever.
He just oozes sex appeal oh la la!

Thank you so much for bringing this to their attention.  And he is the finest of all the 007 (especially those grey eyes tongue).  my sister said those bloody English didn't like him because he was born in Wales, hence his 2 years  reign as James bond.  I prefer Tomothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig (in that order)

@topic

USA is showing the six faces of Bond right now.  I didn't even know there was a bond before Sean Connery and Roger Moore.  His name is George Lazenby and was a James Bond in 1969 (it's on now) - On her majesty's secret service.  Man, this bond loves to slap women.  The movie started at 9am and it's 9:29am, so far he slapped a girl 4 times.  I'll let you know if he slap again


btw, Good Morning and gone back to watch  James Bond

Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by darqly(m): 9:26pm On Aug 30, 2009
@epi if the english hated Dalton cos he was Welsh,then they probably would've had Lazenby shot cos he's Australian. Dalton was unlucky if u ask me,and he really can't act at all!
Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by MadMax1(f): 9:43pm On Aug 30, 2009
Of all Bond photos one has to look at Lazenby's? Dalton can't act? I take it you hail Lazenby's acting chops or OHMSS wouldn't be your fav.
Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by moonraker(m): 8:05am On Sep 01, 2009
my best James bonds ever

Roger Moore

Sean Connery

Pierce Brosnan

Timoty Dalton

Daniel Craig

Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by adaku123(f): 2:59pm On Sep 01, 2009

Daniel craig=== sexy & rugged---has weaknesses(very human) ---Just perfect for the role
Pierce Brosnan=== sexy
Sean connery==rugged

Lazenby is after Connery not before.

I love Daniel Craig and his new type of agbero Bond,you can see he is not polished but will gradually get more like Sean Connery.
I don't really hate any Bond just have preferences, I even thought Dalton tried.
Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by EasyG(m): 7:36am On Jun 24, 2012
What I really love about the old bond movies is the dialogue and humor. The Daniel Craig bond movies lack that. He doesn't have the wit and charm that for me is the prerequisite quality of a good bond. Yes the producers want to make the character more believable and all but heck it's a movie, a form of escapism from real life. I am not happy they don't stick to the old bond tradition anymore. But that's just my opinion, apparently Craig is a hit with audiences. Guess am too old fashioned.
Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by vescucci(m): 9:22am On Jun 24, 2012
I warmed up to Daniel Craig with a lotta resistance. Now he's my favourite. No yeye gadgets. More realistic. And by far the deepest Bond. The rest seem like they are always up for a quick shag even if there's a ticking nuclear bomb in the background.
Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by khattab008: 5:34pm On Jun 25, 2012

Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by yejing88: 3:32pm On Nov 12, 2012
Daniel Craig is dog ugly. Period. Look at him. He's not even handsome. If the producer is aiming for an ugly, sales man look alike bond, he got it.
You'll find a better looking guy walking on the street.
A different style of bond is fine. But does it have to be as ugly as Daniel Craig? Everytime I see his face, I want to puke. And there're much less female roles in the new Bond film. I guess the producer is turning gay?
I refuse to see any bond move with this ugly face in it. It's a total insult. Maybe the production company is trying to save budget.
Being musculine is all fine, but a man can be masculine and handsome at the same time. Masculine is not in conflict with being good looking.
Sad.
No more bond legend.

Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by Nobody: 6:06pm On Nov 12, 2012
I just love Timolthy Dalton. His potrayals of Bond, I loved. "No nonsense" kind of bond. I kinda see some traits in Craig. His stories were also realistic. My best bond film used to be The Living Daylights right before perhaps Casino Royale.
Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by Brisingr(m): 5:51pm On Nov 13, 2012
Daniel craig potrayal of james bond represents the very first bond
in casino royale we were shown his first and second kill as a 00 agent and the lady who made him incapable of love
for craig's bond to leap from a tortured person to the cool,suave bond we all know won't be true to the story as craig's bond era is a reboot of the franchise.

Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by Inova(m): 6:29am On Nov 19, 2012
Too bad. The Bond franchise was all about Hi Tech gadgets, martinis and ladies. Now if you remove that what you have is a totally different film entirely. I reckon they should just change the films name to Daniel Craig 007 and let the violence continue. Gbam
Re: Daniel Craig Is An Insult To The James Bond Persona by dastudent(m): 9:57am On Nov 19, 2012
Err........From what i can see.The OP does not actually grasp the concept of the latest trilogy.Watch all three movies again and actually listen to the dialogue.
