What's Your Flavor Friday … Bond, James Bond
As often happens when I’m chatting with my friend, Tiff, we get off on some random rabbit trail. A couple of weeks ago while discussing Chasing Fireflies at the Online Book Club, she brought up one of those great tangents. Which, of course got my mind a-buzzing, and now I want to know: Who, in your expert opinion, is the best Bond?
For those of you who need a little James Bond refresher course, from left to right:
1. Sean Connery (6 movies)
2. George Lazenby (1 movie. Didn’t even remember this guy at all … sorry George)
3. Roger Moore (7 movies)
4. Timothy Dalton (2 movies)
5. Pierce Brosnan (4 movies)
6. Daniel Craig (2 ultra-fabulous movies)
I always liked Pierce Brosnan. The movies got a bit ridiculous toward the end. The invisible car was the icing on the ridiculous cake. Too unbelievable. Then he flushed all of my respect down the toilet with the also ridiculous “Mamma Mia.” That was some terrible singing y’all. But I digress.
My Bond favorite, by a mile, is Daniel Craig. Woo-baby. He is super intense. Those eyes are piercing. The movies are super exciting and much more realistic. And he is all beat up by the end of the movie … yet still fabulous.
So, who’s your favorite and why? And if you don’t know, I think it might be time to catch the Bond marathon that seems to be constant on one of those man channels. And if you don’t watch Bond movies, you must enlighten me why you don’t love 007!
