Quantum Of Solace - Eye Candy For The Discerning Woman

I will not pretend in any way that Quantum of Solace, the latest movie in the 007 franchise, is a great movie or even a good movie. The entire plot could fit on the head of a pin. Who are they chasing? Not sure. How does it tie in to the last movie? Couldn't tell ya. It really doesn't matter, though, because what us hetero girls get in a James Bond movie is a fantasy wrapped up in a badass and smoothed over with a luscious coating of steamy hot. Daniel Craig brings a depth to Bond that has never been seen before and that includes the considerable efforts of my talented former husband, Sean Connery. Until Casino Royale I would have said that Dr. No was my favorite Bond movie. Sean was singularly fabulous in that light blue polo and khakis getting all snuggly with Ursula Andress, who wore the single best bikini (with fish-killer knife accessory) ever recorded on film. It's a tough call between these two, but I think I may have to go with Daniel Craig and Casino Royale. Besides being iconic as the backstory of the Bond franchise, it is actually a good movie with a plot and fleshed out (for a spy movie) characters. Jeffrey Wright as Felix Lighter is a welcome addition and continues his role, however small, in Quantum. I hope to see more of him as well as the queen of tough, smart women, Judi Dench as M, Bond's boss, mother figure, adversary and friend.

I love that we still have Bonds to enjoy. Who is your favorite? No Timothy Dalton votes are allowed. For your enjoyment we have Bonds on the Beach:

Bonds On The Town: And a little Pearce Brosnan for good measure: Happy 007 day to you all!

I've never been much of a "Bond Girl" so I haven't seen the latest Bond. But my son LOVES all things Bond, though of course we watch them at home because they take some skillful editing! He would vote for Sean Connery, hands down. But it would have nothing to do with any of the reasons you listed! lol

I love them all, but Daniel Craig just has an *edgier* look that I really like. Okay... well, I LOVE it!
They're all gorgeous, but I prefer someone a little less "pretty" you know?

Thank you for the hunk o' bonds! I received this on a day I was buried at work and couldn't respond but I delighted in the eye candy. It's so hard to decide but I am leaning toward our latest bond as well. YUM--ME!!
