James Bond

Ever since I was a kid, I’d always enjoyed watching James Bond movies.  My cousin and I often watched them whenever I stayed over at his house.  When they were on TV, I made sure I watched them.  At that time, Roger Moore was the current 007, so he was the Bond in my young mind.

I enjoyed Moore’s portrayal of James Bond quite a bit.  He was the humourous Bond, though his movies were a bit corny.  I also enjoyed Sean Connery, of course.  He defined the role.  Timothy Dalton and George Lazenby never left an impression on me, because I can’t even remember their movies, though I have seen them.  When the movies restarted in the 1990s, Pierce Brosnan was the new Bond, and he seemed to be the suave, smooth James Bond.  Daniel Craig is the complete opposite, gritty and darker.  Of all the movies, I haven’t seen the last one, Skyfall. However, for some of the movies, I barely remember them as I haven’t seen them since I was a kid.

As for the novels, I have never read one.  I would like to, though.  I’m surprised they’re so short.  They’d be easy to finish reading, I think.

So, I have two questions for you.

1. Who is your favourite James Bond actor?

2. What is your favourite James Bond novel?
