The Tragedy of The World Is Not Enough: Shakespeare and a Sewer of Misogyny

In the Bond oeuvre it must first be understood that women are often pawns in the larger formula and the narrative, disposable cogs in the machine, and therefore the Bond films automatically open themselves up to a certain amount of general criticism. A 2008 BBC News article questioned “Is James Bond loathsome?” In this article, the author, Finlo Rohrer, cites novelist/journalist Bidisha who says, “The Bond films are generally sexist. I don’t like anything that descends from a sewer of misogyny.” Rohrer then goes on to question if James Bond were truly hostile toward women how does one explain the cross-gender appeal?

James Bond Movie Rankings: Licence to List

I've always resisted widely publicizing my full James Bond Movie Rankings. I've resisted because a simple ranking system of all 24 films seemed to undermine the spirit of James Bond enjoyment. Fans of 007 find entertainment in even the diciest Bonds. Maybe I've had a...
