THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH Bond: Pierce Brosnan - 2 tusks For the most part, I have no major problems with Pierce Brosnan. He really does a good job taking the style of Roger Moore and infusing action into the role. There are glimpses of ruthlessness in this movie that I think do harken back [...]

TOMORROW NEVER DIES Bond: Pierce Brosnan - 2 tusks I will admit it. I was wrong in my previous review. Brosnan turns in a stronger performance in this one than I had previously remembered. In fact, I liked him better in this one than in GoldenEye. As a character, I wasn't a big fan of [...]

GOLDENEYE Bond: Pierce Brosnan - 2 tusks Brosnan slips comfortably into the role, a role he almost filled two movies previously. I've heard a lot of people say that Brosnan is the best Bond since Connery. Personally, I think he sets the stage here for being more of a follow up to Moore. I think [...]

LICENSE TO KILLBond: Timothy Dalton - 2 tusksMaybe he wasn't perfect in Living Daylights, but he's perfect now. The infallible nature of Bond is stripped away. Controlled and channeled emotion is infused into the character. He's ruthless. He's a one-man army. Simply awesome.Girl: Carey Lowell as Pam Bouvier - 2 tusksI didn't really buy into [...]

THE LIVING DAYLIGHTSBond: Timothy Dalton - 2 tusksWhile not a perfect Bond, Dalton manages to rid the character of all the stiffness infused into the role by Roger Moore. He comes closer to Connery's Bond in tone, although he infuses more humanity into the character than either Connery or Moore ever did. This was a [...]

NEVER SAY NEVER AGAINBond: Sean Connery - 1 tuskAfter 12 years off, Connery turns in a performance that is a site for sore eyes. Perhaps it's one that really hadn't been seen since Thunderball. Of course, he's older now, but that's accounted for in the script. And he's still two years younger than Roger Moore [...]

OCTOPUSSYBond: Roger Moore - 0 tusksWhile I think that Moore should have bowed out with the last one, a new Bond, particularly what I saw of James Brolin in the bonus features, could not have gone up against Sean Connery in the then-upcoming Never Say Never Again. That said, a Tarzan yell and an awful [...]

FOR YOUR EYES ONLYBond: Roger Moore - 1 tuskWhile he's found his groove by this point, Moore has reached the point of being too old to play Bond. His scenes with Bibi creep me out and his scenes with Melina kind of do, too.Girl: Carole Bouquet as Melina Havelock - 1 tuskI'm kind of torn [...]

Over the halfway point for both Bond movies and the Roger Moore era. Hard to believe this is part of the same series that began with Dr. No.MOONRAKERBond: Roger Moore - 2 tusksAgainst the backdrop of this movie, my problems with Roger Moore pale in comparison. Actually, given the material he had to work with, [...]
