Btw Living, it's Matador. lol, but anyways, i'll watch that film very soon.
Brosnan's best, with no doubt, was Goldeneye. The Best Bond film, with the Best Bond actor. The film is quite memorable, the action is great, it IS the Bond action. As i always thought and always will, HE IS the real James Bond. I hope it is just not me who thinks that.
I don't know so much about his personal life, but i know he is one of the greatest actors i've ever seen.
I like GE, it is a dark thriller but at the same time OTT. Brosnan's performance is allright, but he became much better later.
TND is a very good movie and feels more Bondian to me than GE. Brosnan givesavery good performance.
TWINE is IMO very uneven, but the lighter, more TND-styled scenes fit Brosnan perfectly. I dislike the drama and wish all of it was scrapped. Pierce is ok in the drama scenes and very good in some others.
DAD is also a very good movie and has a great OTT tone to it. Brosnan gives a really great performance.
I'll end this post by saying how incredibly disappointed I am that he was fired before it was time for him to leave. He had several more movies in him.
GoldenEye is one of my favourite Bond films, Tomorrow Never Dies is just outside my top 10, and TWINE is my 8 or 9th favourite depending on what day of the week it is, and Die Another Day, as weak as it was, still had a good central performance from Brosnan, even if he was slightly overshadowed by painfully bad SFX.
My second favourite Bond behind Connery, with Dalton/Craig just behind him again.
Outside of Bond, he's been getting better with age. Forget his earlier B-movies, watch the guy in The Matador, The Tailor of Panama, Seraphim Falls and The Ghost Writer. He's exceptional, especially in the first three.
BUT the man got me into Bond and for he will always be a bit of a hero to me (regardless of what he said after "leaving" Bond). If I met him I would go weak at the knees - more so than if I saw the old grumps Sean and Dan (ok perhaps not Sean) ;)
Here's to the Broz: :D
Funnily enough I found out just the other day a bloke I work with once chatted to him when he was out with his kid at some local sporting event. This was while he was Bond. Said he was a nice bloke. I went all crazy and was like "OMG tell me more" :p
outside of Bond, films that I liked him in have been, in no particular order...
The Thomas Crown Affair
The Tailor Of Panama
After The Sunset
Thanks, I'll change that now :)
Anyway, Brosnan for me is the 2nd best Bond. Right behind Dalton and on par with Connery. I think his best film was GE, but I thought TWINE was great and TND was good too. I like alot of DAD but I don't like how much CGI they started using towards the end, and some of the dialouge. The thing I liked about him was that he always seemed so cool on screen. My favourite film of his outside of Bond is either The Matador or Taylor Of Panama. He's a great actor.
actually, on IMDB and the film's movie poster - it's listed as 'The Matador'.... so you were right the first time.
I really need to catch up with more of Brosnan's films. I am lagging. And I do usually enjoy him even if the movie overall isn't too great.
It was some kind of drama, basically his son dies and then his sons girlfriend shows up who was in the same car crash and she's pregnant and they have to take her in. Not my kind of film but my girlfriend cried, and Brosnan was a good actor in it.
Hear, hear! The best may be Connery, the most faithful to Fleming may be Dalton, but my favourite shall be Pierce. He had the style, sophistication, charm and he could handle himself. Moreover, he was our generation's Bond; whenever I hear James Bond, he the first image that pops up in me mind.
I liked that so much that I went out and bought the book and read it. I thought Brosnan did a great job as Dunross. When i read the book I pictured him.
that aired on the telly here a few months ago.... I caught a few bit here and there, but I thought Brosnan was quite good !
I am ashamed to say I have never watched an entire 'Remington Steele' episode in my life !!
Watch the first episode of Season 2, it has the opening notes of the James Bond theme somewhere. :D It's also 2 hours long I believe.
thanks for the tip !! will try and find it somewhere.....
Love his smile though :D
Better than Lazenby, although George didn't really get a chance to show his potential, better than Moore for the sum total, slightly ahead of Craig as of now, but nowhere near the level of Connery or Dalton, he seemed a bit slimy at times actually
Brosnan has done some good work outside of Bond in other releases, but as the Fleming character, it doesn't always work for me. I wish I could speak more highly of the man as he's a well established and recognized actor, but as this is primarily about Bond, I focus on that, and Brosnan just doesn't reach the heights in that
