Skyfall and the Deconstruction of James Bond

This is the 23rd essay in a 23-part series about the James Bond cinemas. I encourage everyone to read the other essays, comment and join in on the conversation about not only the films themselves, but cinematic trends, political and other external influences on the series’ tone and direction.   Of...

#Bond25 Update: Codenamed “Shatterhand”

We learned an interesting tidbit about the soon-to-be-in-production Bond 25 this morning. Shooting begins on April 6th at Pinewood Studios under the working title "Shatterhand." Seeing as how "Shatterhand" serves as Ernst Stavro Blofeld alias in Ian Fleming's You Only...

Credits Remixed

Casino Royale Opening Remixed w/ Kenny Rogers (Live!)

I've been stubbornly (shamelessly?) trying to shoehorn this Kenny Rogers jam into the Casino Royale opening sequence for EONS. it's just never fit. Well, yesterday I gave it one more shot. I scoured...

Quantum of Solace Opening Remixed w/ Reverend Horton Heat

I didn't mind the Alicia Keys/Jack White combo on the QoS intro, but I've always wanted to use a Reverend song for a Bond intro and I think I finally found my opportunity. And by "don't mind" I mean...

The World is Not Enough Opening Remixed w/ Beyond the Wizards Sleeve

  As I corrected a few formatting issues in the #Bond_age_ jump page, I noticed that The World is Not Enough lacked an Opening Titles Remix. That had to be fixed, and it just so happened I've had a...

Goldfinger Opening Remixed w/ Bret MacKenzie

Greg McCambley suggested this pairing. Without even testing it, I knew this track from Muppets: Most Wanted would be a perfect fit for the Goldfinger opening. I'm a little jealous I didn't come up...

You Only Live Twice Opening Remixed w/ Pizzicato Five

Love erupts and cultures clash in this hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy about two boys and two girls lost in the Orient. Sean Connery is James, a dashing mild-mannered British importer/exporter...

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...

Bond Directors: Licence to List

#Bond_age_ Licence to List: James Bond Directors For this newest Licence to List, #Bond_age_ HQ has compiled and ranked a list of the best Bond directors. As always, we've used highly specific and wholly arbitrary methods for ranking. We each have our favorite films...

Pre-Title Sequences: Licence to List

We've been delinquent on our list-making. Our apologies. I blame Spectre for anything that's gone haywire at #Bond_age_. I'm sure Waltzfeld had something to do with the fact that we started making this list more than a year ago and it's just now seeing the light of...
