I've just launched my 007-part passion project: Battle of the Bonds

Happy Global James Bond Day, fellow Bond fans!

I've just kicked off a passion project that will dive deep into each Bond actor, their films, and their legacies as the world's favorite super spy. By the end of this celebratory series, you’ll know who my favorite Bond is, who I believe the best Bond to be, and, more importantly, why each Bond has played a critical role in ensuring our beloved franchise is here to stay. I hope you'll join me for the ride. Cheers!

    I have bookmarked it, but let us know when Lazenby is ready just the same.

    That was a cool introduction and looking forward to it. So, beer drinker, check. Kobe fan, check. Bond fan, double 0 check. Wait, you are a cat person?

    George Lazenby gets a bad rap, but I don't associate with the Lazenby hater hive. In fact, I believe George Lazenby was the perfect choice of actor to succeed Sean Connery.

    Why? Because he had no idea what he was getting himself into.

    Battle of the Bonds // Part 002 // George Lazenby. Out now.

    Battle of the Bonds // Part 003 // Roger Moore

    “Posh, debonair, and more than a little campy, Roger Moore’s James Bond is a fascinating litmus test for your appreciation of the sillier side of this franchise, perhaps even life itself.
    🍸
    An entire generation hates him, but I just love him…Roger Moore is my favorite Bond.”
    🍸
    Battle of the Bonds is back and bigger than ever! Thanks for reading. 🥰

    Another nice read.As was the last one, even if I didn t comment on that thread. Maybe you don t need a separate thread for each new entry?

    Thanks for your continued support, Thunderfinger. We can definitely keep things to one thread if that's preferred.

    Thanks again for all the support, I can't wait to share further installments with you all.

    For those interested, I've been posting film review excerpts and ten of my favorite shots from every film in each respective actor's run over on my Instagram page. I'm a sucker for great cinematography and this little exercise has been a great way to celebrate some of my favorite shots in each film.

    Battle of the Bonds // Part 004 // Timothy Dalton

    “The world wasn’t ready for Timothy Dalton’s Bond.
    🍸
    Real ones, however, know that Dalton was the closest thing we ever got to the 007 found within Ian Fleming’s original texts.”
    🍸
    It’s time we all put some respect on Timmy D’s name. Help me do so in the latest Battle of the Bonds!
