“Nobody Does It Better… Makes Me Feel Sad For The Rest…”

“…Nobody Does It Half As Good As You

Baby, You’re The Best…”

“…I Wasn’t Looking

But Somehow You Found Me

I Tried To Hide From Your Love-Light

But Like Heaven Above Me

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

Is Keeping All My Secrets Safe Tonight. …”

CARLY SIMON

NOBODY DOES IT BETTER (THE SPY WHO LOVED ME)”

(1977)

<<<{*}>>>

So I’ve Oddly Had This Song On The Brain Alllllll Daaaaaay Long.

It Was The First Song I Really Wanted To Hear When I Awoke…

…And I’m Listening To It As I Type This, Now.

It Is A Truly Wonderful Song, Yes, But It’s More Than That.

This Song Was Also On-Board To Usher In A Whole New Era Of JAMES BOND

…So To Speak.

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

…Was THE BOND FLICK That Firmly Cemented…

ROGER MOORE

…Into The Lead Role.

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

…Is An Exceptional Film, And One Of The All-Time Greats…

…But Would It Have Been So WITHOUT This Glorious Theme Song?!

Honestly, I’m Not So Sure.

I Love The Film.

There’s No Question Of That.

BUT…

…One Of My Favorite Parts Of The Whole Flick Is Watching The Opening-Credits.

WHY?!

Because I Love Seeing The Name…

ROGER MOORE

…Coming Along With The Tune Of…

NOBODY DOES IT BETTER

by CARLY SIMON

!!! !!! !!!

I Actually Get Schoolboy Goosebumps When It Happens!

And It Happens Each And Every Time!

I’ve Never Honestly Understood Why.

The Only Other Times This Has Ever Happened Because Of A Movie Was…

…Oh Yeah…

…OTHER BOND FLICKS!!!

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…My Fave Fave Flick Of The Whole BOND Series With A Song I Simply Love…

…Or…

A VIEW TO A KILL

…Yet Another Favorite BOND Flick With A WONDERFUL Opening Song!!!

And On And On AND ON!!!

HA!

I Wonder What It Is?!

What Is It About Seeing BOND And Hearing A Great Song That Can Make Me Just Go Gooey?!

I Dunno.

I Just Dunno.

But I Will Say This…

…It Happened Again Last Night While I Watched…

SKYFALL

…And Sang Along With…

ADELE

!!! !!! !!!

OF COURSE OF COURSE, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

I’d Appreciate YOUR THOUGHTS, My Peeps.

WHAT IS IT?!

WHAT IS IT ABOUT BOND And A GREAT OPENING THEME That Gets Us All A Goin‘!?!?!?!?!

ANY THOUGHTS, My Peeps?!

ANY THOUGHTS AT ALL?!

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

Sooo… …What To Say About The JAMES BOND Adventure “SKYFALL” (2012)???

Well

Honestly

I LOVED IT.

Period.

I Enjoyed The Ever-Living-Hell Out Of It, To Be Fo SHO.

It Was New.

It Was Fresh.

It Was Unlike Any JAMES BOND Adventure I’d Ever Had The Privilege Of Seeing Before.

I Kept Trying To Make Comparisons To Other BOND Flicks As I Watched Along…

…And I Sincerely Found That Next To Bloody Impossible.

But I Did…

…I Tried To Muster All My Powers, Madams And Misters.

And I Simply Couldn’t Do It.

That’s Just How Fresh And Engrossing This Adventure…

SKYFALL

…Actually Was.

It Had Some Elements Of…

DR. NO

…And…

FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE

…But Also Some…

LICENCE TO KILL

…And Even A Little…

GOLDENEYE

…Yet…

…In The End…

…It Was EXACTLY What I Wanted…

…It Was JAMES BOND As I’d NEVER Seen Him Before!!!

KUDOS, Movie Makers…

…KUDOS, INDEED!!!

๐Ÿ˜€

They Totally Just Went For It.

They Totally Just Went Off The Map.

They Totally Just Sold Me That JAMES BOND Does Indeed Continue To Live Onward Into The 21ST-Century…

…And He Has Plenty Of Room To Grow Grow GROW!!!

Now How The Hell Could One Ask For More Than That?!?!?

EXACTLY, My Peeps!!!

You Couldn’t.

They Gave Us What We Wanted…

…And Even A Little Bit More.

It Was Tough.

It Was Gritty.

It Was Edgy.

It Was Drama Filled AND Action Packed.

It Was Cold AND Dark…

…Yet…

…Retained Its Sense-Of-Humor.

It Was NOT…

CASINO ROYALE

…Nor…

QUANTUM OF SOLACE

…It Was Its Own.

It Was Imaginative.

It Had Its Twists And Turns.

In Short…

…It Was THE BEST BOND FLICK In The Past 30 YEARS.

PERIOD.

For ME…

SKYFALL

…Ranks Right Up There With…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

(My Fave Fave)

…And…

THUNDERBALL

(The Best BOND Adventure)

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

It Was THAT Good, My Peeps.

JAVIER BARDEM

…Was Twisted…

…Was Evil…

…Was Believable…

…Was A SPOT-ON-PERFECT BOND-BADDIE.

I Don’t Think They Could Have Cast His Part Any Better.

And I Do Believe That…

DANIEL CRAIG

…Totally Cemented Himself As OUR BOND

…As MY BOND

…As THE BEST BOND.

He Impressed The Shit Out Of Me, My Peeps.

So…

…All-In-All…

…It Was Worth It, My Peeps.

I Don’t Hit The Theater Too Often Anymore.

The Price And The Hassle Have Simply Tarnished The Experience For Me.

It’s Sad…

…But It’s True…

…And I Feel It’s The Same Way For A Lot Of Y’all.

SKYFALL

…To ME…

…Was TOTALLY WORTH ALL OF IT!

If You’re Going To Hit-Up The Big Screen For ANYTHING This Fall…

…Well Then…

SKYFALL

…Should Be That Flick.

PERIOD PERIOD.

Do I Think It’s “THE BEST BOND ADVENTURE” Of Them All?

No.

Was This “MY FAVORITE BOND ADVENTURE” Of Them All?

No.

Could Either Of Those Statements Be Easily Argued, And Potentially Overturned?!

YES YES YES, INDEED!!!

I’ll Close By Simply Saying This…

…If You LOVE LOVE LOVE JAMES BOND

…You’ll Simply LOVE LOVE LOVE…

SKYFALL

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

!!! !!! !!!

What’s On NOW!?!: “FOR YOUR EYES ONLY” (1981) Starring ROGER MOORE As JAMES BOND 007!!!

The Best Of The Best Of The Bunch.

That’s How I Categorize This Flick…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

(1981)

…Starring…

ROGER MOORE

…As…

JAMES BOND –ย  007

…In What Would Be His Fifth BOND Adventure.

They Say The Third Time’s The Charm…

…And For ROGER

…The Third Time Was More Of A Staple-Point In The World That Is JAMES BOND.

His Third Adventure…

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

(1977)

…Really Cemented ROGER As BOND.

It Was His Best To Date…

…And The Best BOND Adventure Up To That Point.

I Loved It.

And Then I Saw This One…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…And I Was Totally Sold.

It Is…

…By Far Far FAR…

…The Best BOND Of Them All.

At Least…

…In This Blogger’s Humble Opinion.

I Honestly Don’t Know What All To Say Here.

I’ve Been In A Decent Mood…

…I’ve Just Felt Like Arse.

What More Can Be Said?

I’m Just In Pure BOND Mode, Today.

I Have All Of His Adventures On The DVD…

…But Only A Few On The Blu-ray.

I Only Purchased The Ones I Love The Most…

…And That Were Available At The Time.

Mainly…

…Those Available Were…

PIERCE BROSNAN

BOND Adventures…

…Of Which Only One…

GOLDENEYE

(1995)

…Is On My Target List.

I Simply Love…

GOLDENEYE

…Though That’s The Only BROSNAN Flick I Can Honestly Say That About.

Anyway…

…I’m Going To Get Back To Watching…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…And Once It’s Over, I’m Going To Watch…

THUNDERBALL

(1965)

…Which Is My Fave Fave From…

SEAN CONNERY

!!! !!!

I Know Everyone Says…

GOLDFINGER

(1964)

…Is The Very Best, Especially Of The CONNERY Flicks.

BUT…

…I Tend To Disagree.

(Of Course)

To ME…

THUNDERBALL

…Is Another Of Those That Is By Far Far FAR The Best Of The Best Of The Bunch.

I LOVE Me Some…

SEAN CONNERY

…And…

THUNDERBALL

…Is My Utmost Favorite!!!

ANYWAY…

…’Tis Time For Me To Kick-It-Back And Enjoy My Flicks.

These Flicks Are GREAT…

…But Having Them On The Blu-ray Is EVEN BETTER!!!

So It’s Time To Enjoy, My Peeps.

Time To Enjoy, Indeed!!!

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

I Felt Like Warmed-Over-Arse…

…So I Spent The Bulk Of My Saturday In Bed.

I Simply Couldn’t Function.

Period.

I Felt Tired…

…I Felt Lethargic…

…I Felt Mopy And Draggy…

…I Simply Couldn’t Operate Up To Factory Specs.

And I Don’t Even Know What Was Wrong With Me.

It’s Very VERY Unusual For Me To Spend So Much Time Sleeping.

Some Folks Get Away With It…

…But Not I.

And Upon Awaking…

…I Found That I Had Silly Hands.

Silly Hands Means My Hands Are Twitchy.

I Can’t Get Them To Do Exactly As I’d Like…

…Or Exactly As They Would Normally Work.

I Mean, Come On Hands, Work For Me, Dammit, And Work NOW!

It’s Taken Me Forever And A Day Just To Type This Much.

It Sucks.

It Blows HARD, And Not In A Good Way.

There’s Nothing Pleasant About Having Silly Hands.

They Plague Me.

They Are The Bane Of My Existence.

They Cause So Many Issues.

As I Type Onward, They Don’t Improve.

They Only Get Worse.

You Try Typing With Silly Hands.

Or Try Pouring, AND Carrying, A Cup Of Coffee With Them.

Silly Hands Are What Have Kept Me From Doing Any Type Of Technical Work.

Hard To Work On Someone’s Computer When Your Hands Don’t Want To Operate Like They Should.

It’s Maddening.

It’s Frustrating.

It’s A Whole Bunch Of Horseshit, Is What It Is.

And There’s Nothing I Can Do About It.

I Simply Have To Let Them Pass.

Eventually, My Hands Will Go Back To Normal.

Or, As Normal As They’ll Get.

Which Ain’t So Normal.

And NOW I’m Realizing I’ve Spent This Much Time Talking About My Hands.

Sheesh.

Sorry.

Get Me On A Roll About Something, And I’ll Just Babble On And On About It.

My Bad.

What I Meant To Be Talking About Was My Health.

I Don’t Feel Right.

I Don’t Feel Well.

I Feel…

…Hmm…

…How Do I Feel?

I Feel…

…Crappy?

Does Crappy Fit Here?

Crappy SHOULD Fit Here.

I’m Just Not Me.

I Haven’t Been Me All Damned Day.

I Wasn’t Me All Of Yesterday.

Hell, I Wasn’t Even Me This Past Friday.

Just Tired.

Just Draggy.

Just Mopy.

I’d Say I Need To Get Out-N-About And Do Something.

I Would Do So.

But I Sincerely Don’t Know If I’ve Come-Down With Something.

My Temp Was Up A Touch Friday.

I Didn’t Take It Saturday, As I Knew I Didn’t Feel Good.

Perhaps I Should Take It Today?!

Perhaps, Indeed.

I’m Gonna Stop This, Now.

I’m Talking Way Too Much, And For No Good Reason.

As I Said, When I Don’t Feel Good, And I Get On A Topic, I Have The Tendency To Babble.

So I Shall Leave You Be, My Peeps.

I Promise To Work More, Today.

Working Generally Quells My Ill-Feelings.

Let’s Just Hope It Works In This Instance.

I Think I’ll Pop-On A JAMES BOND Flick On The Ole Blu-ray.

That Usually Helps Me Relax.

I’m Thinking…

…Oh…

…How About…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…The Flick That Has Become My Favorite Of The ROGER MOORE Bond Adventures.

Yeah.

That Sounds Good.

Some I’m Gonna Go For That.

Why Not, Eh?!

Why Not, Indeed.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Y’all Take Care.

Y’all Be Good.

Y’all See Me Soon.

Y’all Talk To Me Sooner.

I Foresee Another Day In Bed.

Nothing Wrong With That When You’re Sickly, Right?!

RIGHT!?!?!?!

Right.
