Who is your favourite James Bond? - April 17th 2011, 11:30 AM

I've been watching some of the older movies, with Sean Connery, and he is by far my favourite.
You can't get better than the original, plus he has a shhhexy accent

And Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan have that undeniable sex appeal.
I still find it weird having Daniel Craig as a Bond... a blond Bond just seems wrong to me.

So, who's your favourite?

Oh, and who would you like to be the next one?
I'd love if Ewan McGregor got the part, as I would love another Scottish Bond.

Sean Connery too. I do like Daniel Craig, though, although I haven't seen Quantum of Solace. Sean Connery was very much of his time. That kind of Bond would be completely incongruous in a modern setting. Daniel Craig is a better fit for the more Bourne-like direction they've gone in.

Also, there's obviously only one person who can play Bond in the future. Robert Pattinson. And now you're picturing it.

I haven't seen it either and I think it's the change that is making me. Bond was all about sex and the old school spy. The gadgets, sure, are awesome, but I feel like they've changed him too much.

You're kidding right?
Robert Pattisnon is not suave enough in my opinion to play bond. It's just making me feel awkward :\

Of course I'm kidding. James Bond isn't a sparkly vampire. No idea who I'd pick to play the role, though.

Yeah, the gadgets were definitely a bad move for the series. I'm glad they mostly got rid of them. Although in a sudden flash of genius I realised that they could make the Bond series better by setting it in the past instead of trying to bring it up to date. They could bring back the Cold War stories, the suave old-school spying, even the attitudes to women. It'd avoid the incongruity of the classic Bond against a modern background, and it'd be awesome.

Exactly, the movies are based on the books which were set in the past. I really don't understand why they felt the need to modernise it because they are taking away from the main character.

Sean Connery every time. I like Daniel Craig though, and I think Quantum of Solace really let him down by having a totally nonsensical plot. Plus Sean seems more true to the actual character of Bond, as Bond did originally come from Scotland.

After seeing Liam Neeson in Taken and Unkown I thought he could be a decent bond, but I'm not sure he could pull off a different accent very well.

I really like Daniel Craig. As much as I didn't enjoy Quantum of Solace compared to Casion Royale (which was awesome), I still think he was undeniably cool.

Sean Connery was great as well. Goldfinger is one of my favourites. I actually enjoyed Piers too, but that's probably because Goldeneye was the first Bond movie I saw. Not to mention the Nintendo 64 game of it was so good.

As for the Bond girls...I think they surpassed themselves with Eva Green. Dear Lord *fans self*

I've not really seen many of the Bond films, just the Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan ones. Out of those two I'd pick Daniel Craig

I agree with you Lou and Ewan McGregor for the next one, I'd love to see him in a suit
