The Living Daylights: Bizarro Bond in a Brave Old World

The striking departure from the traditional histrionics-laden Bond artwork prefaces the (relative) seriousness of the endeavor. Dalton’s performance delivers on that promise. His version of the character projects an approximation of humanity that hadn’t been present in the superhero antics of the aging Roger Moore. But despite what they said about Roger Moore and, in particular, his last outing in A View to a Kill, is that what audiences really wanted?

No Time To Die: The Conflict of Bond, Not Really Bond

No Time To Die: The Conflict of Bond, Not Really Bond

Too many words have been spent on articles explaining that James Bond owes his longevity to a kind of blank-slate cross-gender appeal. He isn’t a three-dimensional human so much as a conduit. Men (and women!) want to be James Bond. Others want to watch someone look...

Credits Remixed

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...

Live and Let Die Opening Remixed with The Cult

Replace Sir Paul? Why not? Sometimes even the classics need a day off. I knew immediately which song I wanted to use... thematics and all that fire jazz led me to The Cult's "Fire Woman"...

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...

Tomorrow Never Dies Opening Remixed with Saint Etienne

Saint Etienne's track was considered for Tomorrow Never Dies before Sheryl Crow. It's not a perfect vibe for a Bond song, but I dig Saint Etienne and this is a decent jam. Tomorrow Never Dies...

Tomorrow Never Dies Opening Credits Remixed with the Rolling Stones

The original title track for TOMORROW NEVER DIES shall go unmentioned. It’s just safer that way. You never know when you'll be in mixed company getting all worked up about Sheryl Crow's abomination...

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...
