    Hey, everybody. Just a big fan of Bond who has seen the movies over and over and has read some of Fleming's books (Casino Royale, Live and Let Die, From Russia With Love, On Her Majesty's Secret Service and You Only Live Twice). I've seen threads here for a while so I decided to join. Hopefully it'll be fun. lol

    P.S. Stoked for SPECTRE, looking like one of the classic Bonds already.

    Hello :)
    Felt like finally signing up and create an account.
    My English should be good enough I hope :)
    You'll never guess who my favourite Bond actor is :))
    There is a strong hint in my profile ;)

    I'm male, first language French.
    Never been on a Bond forum actively but read through it quite a lot.
    Now with Spectre arriving I like joining the threads.
    Very excited for the film!

    I guess that's it for the moment, ask me if you want to know anything :)

    Welcome " We've been expecting You !" ;)
  • G'day guys. Glad to be onboard. Been a casual connoisseur of Bond films for a while, recently decided to go back and watch them all in order. Give them the attention they deserve.

    Welcome @LazinBee! Make yourself at home on our community! :)

    It's funny but I'm writing something about James Bond and bees/beekeeping at the moment for my blog that might be of interest to you! :D

    Having lurked for a long time, and being most appreciative of the site and wealth of information it contains, I felt it appropriate to finally "Report for duty" as I wait to leave for the first IMAX showing of Spectre this afternoon.
    Long time Bond fan, having started with Fleming's novels before Dr. No was released in 1962, so Sean Connery was "my" Bond for many years, but greatly appreciate how well Daniel Craig fits the literary "blunt instrument" that Fleming created in his take on the role. Anxiously awaiting Spectre, as I will certainly fit in the age group that gets and appreciates the nods to years gone by. I remember cheering during Skyfall when Craig rolled back the garage door to reveal the DB5, and feeling as angry as he looked when Silva's chopper destroyed it during the climax.
    Thanks to all for sharing so much information and insight here!

    As another (classic member, let's say). Not older.
    With the Books and films behind you.
    You review will be most interesting. ;)

    Oh, older is fine...when I began reading my father's Fleming paperbacks, the cover price was 50 cents, and as an avid reader, was able to convince him to bring me along to see Dr. No when it was released in '62, so older is indeed accurate :)
    I will gladly compose a review from my own perspective, and unlike a certain ludicrous critic, won't mistakenly put a critique about the scenes in New York into my review (I had to laugh when I read that - do these critics even bother to see the film they're paid to critique anymore?).

    :)) Yes, it pays not to have a few drinks and fall asleep during the screening.

    Welcome, everyone! For those who have yet to see SP, I most certainly hope you love it, and for those who have, I look forward to discussing the movie with you!
  • Hello, big 007 follower since my first cinema viewing at 7 yrs old of TSWLM - it was the idea of that gun in a long tube under the dinner table that grabbed my imagination. Enjoyed reading all the posts especially for SP so hoping to add something extra to the debate when I see it for the 2nd time on Tuesday, over here in France. Thanks to those for running this great site.

    You were 7 when you recorded NDIB? Impressive. Welcome, Carly.

    Welcome @Carlysimon
  • Hello everyone! I had an account on the old forum a long time ago. I was active around 2002 and again around 2005. Haven't been visiting much since and I've just found out that the old board was brought down in 2011. Sad about all the old posts missing.

    Welcome back, Robert. Or is that Richard? I am a little bit confused.
  • New member, 43 years old, Been a Bond film since being a kid, was introduced by my parents to Live And Let Die on an early tv screening, and was immediately hooked. I remember seeing the boat chase, and being captivated. As well as loving the Bond films, I am also a keen horror movie fan. Great website, love the way it always gives us the news but is spoiler savvy.
