My Favorite #Bond_age_: Eric Jones on Dr. No

Being the first big screen version of Ian Fleming’s literary spy, no one knew if this enterprise would be a success or a failure. It certainly has elements of the movies that would follow, the theme, the gun barrel, his briefing with M, flirting with Moneypenny, exotic locations, beautiful women, megalomaniacal villain. But it wasn’t yet meshed together as the formula had yet to be written. For the most part, the movie feels like a two-part episode of Hawaii Five-O set in Jamaica. It sounds as if I am nitpicking, but these are exactly the things that make this movie my personal favorite.

Bond 25 Updates and Careless Whispers

I want Bond to be a cocky bastard and stop with the tired middie-aged introspection that started in Skyfall (because if Bond can’t survive his midlife crisis what hope is there for the rest of us?!?) and go on an actual goddamn MI6 mission handed to him by an M who sits at his desk and makes snide remarks about Bond’s carelessness.

Credits Remixed

Octopussy Opening Remixed with The Muppets

The Octopussy title track from Rita Coolidge is a certifiable classic. A certifiable slow jam with an awkward pace that causes a tragic difficulty in matching a song with the image. I was...

Goldfinger Opening Remixed w/ No Doubt

I know this song from No Doubt may not have been a totally obvious choice... but follow me down the rabbit hole. If you pay close attention to the visual cues and how they play along with the lyrics...

SPECTRE Opening Titles Remixed with Portishead

I hadn't heard this song in a long time. "Sour Times" hails from album Dummy, released in 1994. I was obsessed with this record. That might be putting it mildly, however. I kept this album in my car...

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...

The Spy Who Loved Me Opening Remixed w/ The Last Shadow Puppets

I've had this song from the Last Shadow Puppets on the Opening-Remix back burner for years. I never quite found the right fit. Seeing as how this week marked the 40th Anniversary of The Spy Who Love...

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...

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...

James Bond in Bob’s Burgers

Pop Bond: James Bond in Bob's Burgers I started watching Bob's Burgers last week and even selected it as The Best Thing I Watched - Bob's Burgers on my other bl-g. In the sixth episode of the 1st season, a delicious James Bond / Live and Let Die reference pops up on...
