Ok, I am admittedly a huge Bond fan going back to as far as I can remember. I loved the camp of the Roger Moore years before I knew any better and then I learned to appreciate the fierce ruggedness of Connery as I grew to learn the earlier films. Hell I even appreciated Lazenby in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
I loved the back to basics Bond that Dalton created on screen, even if the stories were a tad weak given the political climate at the time. I did struggle with the Brosnan editions finding them a bit too close to Moore as I matured. Yet I was in the theater every opening weekend.
I know I made a bold, almost outrageous statement saying that Skyfall is the single best James Bond movie of all time; but it’s one I am going to stand behind for several reasons.
