Bond Movies: Which Are You Buying? - Page 2

post #31 of 236
I ordered the six pack from Amazon for $112. This will be my first time revisiting DAD since the first time in theaters--I wish they would have given us ANY other one instead in the first wave.

I dont think im that eager to upgrade.....the DVD sets are really fantastic but Its more about the cost issue than anything for me. I cant afford to upgrade now. But I would love the connery ones.

Lazenby was a great Bond, way better than Moore or Dalton. Too bad he only made one.

I have the Bond collector's set on DVD (got the gold box deal for $96), so I intend to rent a couple, probably Die Another Day and Thunderball so I can compare. If the difference is amazing then I'll probably end up buying the Blu's and finding a home for my old Bond DVDs. We'll see.

I have all of them pre-ordered!

Why is it so hard to come up with a good Bond theme song. They used to be quite good. (For Your Eyes Only, for example). ANY artist would jump at the opportunity to spring-board a song. They can choose just about anyone. I just find it odd that they can't find a good song.

What is the point of not releasing the movies in order?

The best one is still Carly Simon's "Nobody Does It Better." That's followed by Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die" and Shirley Bassey's "Goldfinger."

Yes, I thought Lazenby was a great Bond.

I really liked the last one. One of my favorites from the series.

Nobody Does it Better and For Your Eyes Only are the two most memorable Bond theme songs that come to mind.

So the theme from Goldfinger doesn't ?

I'm in for all the Bonds (yes, even DAD) and my vote for best theme song is Tom Jones' "Thunderball". I used to own the Thunderball soundtrack LP in the day and the cover art was very cool...
post #47 of 236
Live and Let Die is the one I rememeber most. Although I do have them all, well at least the older ones(and the Madonna one) on my Zune player.
post #48 of 236
Holy crap, not at all what I expected. I was expecting an overwhelming weight for Die Another Day but I was dead wrong, lol. I just bought the 4 volumes of DVD's so I don't see myself rebuying the old ones on BD, just Die Another Day.

Goldfinger.
He's the man, the man with the midas touch.

Yeah, classic. But I like Nobody Does it Better and For Your Eyes Only better. Live and Let Die is also memorable, but, again, not as likable to me. In fact, I'd probably put in third place All Time High by Rita Coolidge (Octopussy). By the way, Another Way to Die sung by Alicia Keyes (I think) for the new Bond movie sounds pretty bad, IMO. Maybe not quite on Madonna level, but not far away. Just youtubed it and didn't like it at all.

I will start with the Connery titles. Will probably end up with them all, eventually.

Well, man, if you're going to start reciting lyrics...

"When you were young and your heart was an open book,
You used to say 'Live and let live,'
(You know you did you know you did you know you did)..."

Heh.

Anyway, my vote for #1 is still "Nobody Does It Better." It not only works great as a Bond Theme, but it's a great song on its own merits and is timeless. As Thom Yorke of Radiohead puts it in the intro to their cover of it, "This is the sexiest song ever written." Yeah, when Carly sings it I would have to say it is one of the sexiest songs ever sung too.

For me the best Bond theme is For Your Eyes Only.....Moves me a lot that theme.

Can't wait till they announce On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Goldfinger and You Only Live Twice.

From this list i would buy From Russia With Love, Dr No and For Your Eyes Only although i might be tempted to give Die Another Day another spin as i thought Halle Berry was good in it even if the second half of the film was slightly corny ( First half i really enjoyed )

I still say "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" is one of the best Bond Themes.

I agree...That was a completely musical score and a great one at that....Although What a wonderful world featured within the actual movie and was a great song too.

It was actually "We Have All the Time in the World" - but it was also Louis Armstrong.

Parts of Die Another Day are definitely cringe worthy (anything wih Halle Berry, and the Madonna part, especially), I do enjoy other parts (mostly the intro).

Eventually I'll probably get all but will probably be waiting for a BOGO or B2/3rd free or something like that.
post #58 of 236
3 best themes in order are

Live and let die
Nobody does it better
For your eyes only

I plan to get every Bond film on Blu Ray since its my all time favorite series of films. However I will wait until they are all available first and maybe a little longer and that way I can get them at a discount hopefully. Over Memorial Day weekend I picked up the remastered DVD versions for $25 a set at a local B&M store. I did not really need them since I have the previous box sets as well but for $25 I said what the heck. The transfers are pretty sharp!!

My all time favorite Bond film has to be For Your Eyes Only followed closely by The Spy Who Loved Me. Because of my age I tend to prefer Roger Moore as Bond since I grew up watching him be Bond. It all slight though since I enjoy all the Bond films.

In fact my wife is a big Bond fan as well and I proposed to her when watching The Spy Who Loved Me.
