From Russia With Love
The Cold War in Istanbul will not remain cold very much longer
When Soviet Agent Tatiana Romanova informs MI6 she has access to a Lektor Decoding machine but is only willing to hand it over to James Bond, M suspects a trap but sends 007 anyway due to its importance, the full extent of the trap is soon revealed as head of SPECTRE, Ernst Stavro Blofeld has been acquiring specially trained agents to kill James
Released in 1963, the second Bond film is in my opinion, the greatest entry of the series, apart from featuring Connery's best performance, it is the most realistic featuring technically no gadgetry at all, Boothroyd/Q does appear - played for the first time by Desmond Llewellyn, who would go on to play the character for the next 36 years & opposite 5 different Bonds - but the briefcase he delivers is completely believable, allowing 007 to carry out his assignment using just his wits.
This film also succeeds because of its casting, whether a minor role such as Morzeny or Bonds main adversary, the intelligent & resourceful Donald "Red" Grant (played to perfection by Robert Shaw) who is seen tailing 007 through Istanbul before crossing paths aboard a train & resulting in one of the greatest fight scenes ever put to film.
Here’s another challenge nobody has picked up on, come on all you petrol heads (boys and girls) I’m pretty sure you won’t be able to resist this challenge.
So I will kick it off with the Aston Martin DB5 and it’s destruction in Skyfall, turns out it was a miniature, who knew, Daniel Craig looks genuinely pist-off when it’s destroyed.
I put Connery at the end with his Aston.
So anything from film and TV. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
1974.EL HOMBRE DE LA PISTOLA DE ORO
Sin duda alguna, lo mejor de esta aventura es el hombre de la pistola de oro, es decir, Scaramanga. La cinta peca de ciertos excesos al intentar explotar al máximo los símbolos de la franquicia olvidándose a trozos de la historia y del guión. No obstante, estamos ante una aventura trepidante, exótica y ante un malo que es imposible que no te caiga bien.
Scaramanga, el más temido asesino a sueldo del mundo intenta dar caza a la pieza más codiciada: el agente 007🎯. Por el camino, intentará hacerse rico gracias a la incipiente energía solar. Sí, despiadado pero ecológico... #007#JamesBond#GoldenGun
I (as James bond) was sitting at a bar when a pretty babe sat next to me. I looked at my watch, looked back at the girl and then looked back at my watch.
The girl said "what's wrong, is your date late?" I said "No, I've just got a new watch which tells me about the girl sitting next to me"
Girl: So what does it tell you about me? ☺️ Me: It says your not wearing any panties 😏
Girl: Well I am 😋
Me: oh snap, this thing must be an hour fast 😯😏 😏 😏 .
