SKYFALL – First Teaser Trailer

In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

After so many delays and the bankruptcy of MGM, Skyfall is here at last, the release date set for November 9th. I can’t wait for this Bond film, I can’t wait for any Bond movie, and the ones with Daniel Craig just keep surprising me. This the first trailer for the movie, I don’t even know whats the story going to be but it looks like its going to be good.

Bond 50 – The Ultimate Collection

MGM & FOX have done it, I want this, I am a huge fan of James Bond and this is something that I really that they have put together. I know that I have some of these movies on DVD, and a lot of them downloaded I still want them all. The box for Bond 50, the upcoming release of the Golden Anniversary Blu-ray edition of all 22 James Bond films on Blu-ray for the first time as one complete offering. Put simply, it’s beautiful. They even delivered a trailer, which I’ve included after the jump.

James Bond Vehicle History Infographic

JamesBondCars01

If you are even a remote fan of James Bond you will love this infographic about the vehicles that he has driven over the decades. There isn’t a man out there that doesn’t want to be James Bond, life on the edge, the women, the mission, the gadgets & weapons, and especially the cars. This infographic is fantastic but surprisingly its missing two important cars, one is the introduction of the hugely controversial and successful BMW Z3, it was the first Bond movie without an Aston Martin and at the time the vehicle was not released, I remember thinking it was so cool in Golden Eye. And the other vehicle is the BMW E38 750iL, which was so tricked out that can’t take out anyone and anything, I remember it was one of the first movies for a real car to be controlled by remote control and Pierce Brosnan was controlling from his phone, I just loved that and the car could take anything. For cars that had such an impact I’m surprised they are not on the list but the infographic is fantastic.

My Favorite Bond Cars:

  • Aston Marting V8 Vantage Volante
  • Aston Martin DB5 (All Of Them)
  • BMW Z8 (Still One Of My Favorite Beemers)
  • Lotus Espirit Turbo

New Bond Girls

FreidaPinto

They always pick interesting women for the Bond movies, each one fits their role, previously they were leaning a little bit more to eye candy but since the 90s they played more pivotal roles. Now the new Bond Girls have been chosen for the new Daniel Craig movie and they look good, I’m not sure what the story is going to be this time but I do love those Bond Movies

Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto has apparently signed on to the the film to play Bond’s new love interest, and Tron Legacy’s Oliva Wilde has been approached to play a double-crossing UN worker in the film, which will be based in Afghanistan.

Golden Eye – Game & Movie

GoldenEye

When this movie came out I was dying to go see it in the theater, I remember being so impressed with Pierce Brosnan he automatically became the number 1 Bond for me. Sean Connery is the original and can’t be replaced, but Brosnan was the modernization of Bond with the end of the Soviet Era and Cold War. There were a lot of firsts in this movie, it didn’t follow any of Ian Flemings books, M was female for the first time, and the introduction of the BMW as Bonds car as a replacement for the for the Aston Martin, I remember BMW having those BMW Films which were meant to coincide with the release of a few of the Bond movies. It wasn’t the movie that was great, the video game was something else as well, the movie introduced Brosnan as the new slick Bond who can handle any situation or woman.

The video game was something else, it was unexpected, I for one remember it as one of the games that really introduced me to the First Person Shooter. I remember begging my mother for Nintendo N64, and she brought it with this game as I asked, I spent hours upon hours playing this game, we all took turns with the lowest scorer switching out with the other person. I didn’t step out much since I always had high scores, I fell in love with the first person shooter and we played that game for a long time, even played it during college which was a little old by then but still the perfect game. The AI was predictable but it made you feel that you were that much better, but you had to act fast. Lots of people still agree that it is still one of the best First Person Shooters of all time, Golden Eye was for the N64 what Halo is for XBox. Found memories of this game and movie, I always love Bond movies.

Review: Quantum of Solace


We just saw a pre-screening of the new James Bond movie, I thought it might be uncut in Kuwait for this pre-screening but I was wrong. Starts off with a nice car chase getting you into the gritty action right away.

Daniel Craig is the toughest James Bond yet, this movie is filled with rough fight scenes and he is getting beat up at every turn. This movie is very raw with a sense of relentless revenge that Bond is seeking.

I had high expectancy for this movie after Casino Royale’s big band and twisty plot. But in this one Bond is a man on a mission and no one can stop him. Its so hectic that you keep trying to piece things together, and at the end of it you keep thinking that there should be more. I am dissapointed that the story didn’t satisfy me completely, yes, but is it worth watching hell yes.

See it for Craig’s fully-formed Bond: angry, icily unsentimental, and fleetingly borderline psychotic at the close.
