James Bond : Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

I don't care for Sean Connery's arrogant attitude where he acts like his shit doesn't stink.
Instead I prefer the casualness and calm and collected demeanor that Moore brought to the role.
Anyone else agree?

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

Yes, I agree. Many people say it's the other way around, just because Connery had the role first.
That may be, but for many of us, Moore is the first Bond we saw, and seems a perfect fit. Having said that, the classic "Thunderball" is my favorite Bond film. Don't get me started with that Domino! πŸ’¦πŸ‘πŸ’¦

Good call, Jamall.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

I cant disagree but to me I dont think it's because he is the first. He clearly zeals bond like no one before. He was born Bond and the rest are just cheap imitators.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

Connery.

I read some of the books and Bond is not supposed to be nice or even very handsome. He's supposed to be a brutal guy.

Connery has the "I'll shoot you in the face" and make a joke then go have lunch quality. Moore has a smart and intelligent gentleman quality, in the more serious movies.

So, Connery is closer to the character.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

Yeah, wasn't he supposed to look like Hoagy Carmichael?

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

I recall that as you say it.

The Maltese Falcon is a favorite film of mine. There were a couple versions of the film with Bogart being the most famous. I read the book and the main character is supposed to be built like a bear.

I think Bond is supposed to be like that. The idea is that a bear does not care who is in his way.

The witty Bond is a creation of Connery I believe.

So, he's the most Bondlike of all the Bonds on film since he reshaped the character into what we expect.

I think Craig looks alcoholic and retarded Barney Rubble but he is closer to the "brute" character in the books.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

It was Ian Fleming who saw his creation, James Bond, as looking rather like Hoagy Carmichael, as taken from 2 of his novels:

In Casino Royale, it is Vesper Lynd who first makes this connection:

"He is very good-looking. He reminds me rather of Hoagy Carmichael, but there is something cold and ruthless…"

In Moonraker, Gala Brand also makes the connection:

"Rather like Hoagy Carmichael in a way. That black hair falling down over the right eyebrow. Much the same bones. But there was something a bit cruel in the mouth, and the eyes were cold."

These are the only mentions of Carmichael, but the description of Bond stays pretty consistent throughout the series.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

I read Casino so that's where I remember it from.

I'm a fan of classic movies and stuff and have heard of Hoagy but have no real knowledge of him so it's like a random name. I have to look him up on youtube.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

Connery is much more handsome.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

I read all the Bond books, and you are correct, sir! Connery is Bond. Moore is a poof.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

I read Casino and liked it.

How were the others?

The 70s sucked for action films because of the hippie/jewish thing that all heroes are fascist. So, they would turn everything into a comedy.

James Bond is not supposed to be funny. So, Roger Moore was in more like satire films than real action movies. He was good in other things, however, he's more of a gentleman adventurer type than a cold assassin.

I watched some of The Saint TV show he was in and that part makes more sense for him.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

I like Val.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

They were all good imho. And yes, Bond is not supposed to be funny. Moore's films were indeed satire, and poor satire at that.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

I generally love the movies and can find something good about all of them.

I would like a dead serious Bond, with science fiction themes and gear though.

I also think if they want to add women and minorities, they should start a 00 series with other numbers. 005 and so forth can have their own adventures.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

You are right.
That scum sucking turd is closer to the character.

β€œI don’t think there is anything particularly wrong in hitting a woman, though I don’t recommend you do it the same way that you hit a man,” Connery said in a 1965 interview with Playboy magazine. β€œAn open-handed slap is justified, if all other alternatives fail and there has been plenty of warning. If a woman is a bitch, or hysterical, or bloody-minded continually, then I’d do it.”

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

Many actors are drug addicts, homosexuals, and more, and I don't really care as long as they do a good job at work.

Plus, I have known a LOT of women and I am sure Connery attracted a huge number of sociopathic golddiggers. Can you imagine being someone like that where BILLIONS of women think you're handsome and know you're rich?

Connery and people like him aren't meeting nice little school teachers or nurses, they're meeting women who worked their way up HIGH in society, not based on their genius, but due to looks and craftiness.

So, I get that he may have met some women who were really rotten people.

Do you remember Robert Blake?

He met a woman whose goal it was, along with her friends, to meet rich celebs, get pregnant, and use the celebs via the baby. So, that's who Connery attracted only worse because he was way more famous than Blake.

Blake's fake wife ended up shot in the head likely to save her kid from her.

So, Connery was cool with slapping some women while other women need to be killed in order for the their kids to be saved.

Wake up to the world around you.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

There is no defense for that pile of dog shit for being a wife beater.

And you are going to lump in homosexuality as being bad as a drug addict?
WTF?
I am not gay but I recognize that being gay is as natural and normal to them as it is for being straight to me.

Just because a woman may be a gold digger does not mean that she deserves any kind of beating at all.

You have some issues son that you need to seek help for.

I am done with you.
A homophobic, misogynist woman beater.

Re: Does anyone else prefer Moore over Connery?

I don't believe Connery said anything about being a "wife beater" for one thing.

Connery probably could never get a "wife" if you know what I mean. A wife is supposed to be your friend and a man like that is not going to attract friends very often. Women are unlikely to be a friend to a man like that.

In addition, I never said fitting anyone is okay or desirable. I said that male celebs are going to attract a lot of sociopathic manipulators. So, these aren't "women" they are criminal robot type people. So, they will push a man to the edge, especially if they are good at it and make the man like them.

These are vampire type women.

The Robert Blake story is true. Imagine some woman seduces you, creates a baby as part of a criminal plot, and wants to steal your money that way. I mean you aren't going to have nice thoughts about such a person.

Keep it real.

Also, I'm not giving my opinion, I'm stating facts and making logical arguments. So, also, learn how to think clearly and less emotionally.

No. Sean Connery is James Bond. Moore and the others are just lame actors trying to play Bond. Anyone who prefers Moore has no cinematic taste.

No.

Dont think I couldnt agree more. Probably couldnt have said it better than me.

Bond should be retired and shouldve died when Sean retired. Nobody comes close, not even the book. He is bond in every possible way and Im sick of people trying to catch upto him. It's ridiculously STUPID!!!!

No doubt that you will just love it that SC beat his woman in real life.

No.

I'm talking about a character Connery played in movies, not his real life. What part of that do you not understand, dumb ass??



😺 Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't. 😠 Let's go, Brandon! 😎 Slava Ukraini! πŸ˜‹ Member of PETA: People Eating Tasty Animals

No.

I actually do.

Though this was unpc it was probably the most Dominant thing that a male Masculine Celebrity ever said and he didnt really back tracked or what he said was actually wrong. If you read the full script and have dealt with enough women you'd know his saying the truth though it is very personal and from a celebrity never happens. So instead of applauding him for it he is shamed. Which is really ridiculously stupid.

"Anyone who prefers Moore has no cinematic taste."

Man, you have one weird hobby.
Going around and licking cinemas to see how they taste.

No.

LOL! Is that the best you got? Seriously?? Did you fire your writer, or is he just out of town? And it takes a sick mind to think like that, dumb ass.



😺 Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't. 😠 Let's go, Brandon! 😎 Slava Ukraini! πŸ˜‹ Member of PETA: People Eating Tasty Animals

No.

Better than lame and the same old insults that all you come up with.

No.

In addition to being unfunny, you're also delusional, cunt.



😺 Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't. 😠 Let's go, Brandon! 😎 Slava Ukraini! πŸ˜‹ Member of PETA: People Eating Tasty Animals

No.

Of course you find my wit unfunny because we are on opposite sides.
If I was a Trumptard like you I would not see one word of any objection from you and perhaps you would be coming to my defense if there were any Lefties on the attack.

Cunt?

You must be gay, virgin or both because only a straight man who has experienced sex would know how wonderful a cunt is and would not use that awesome part of a woman as an attempt at an insult.

I would retort by calling you a "cocksucker" but why bother since you do that and that would be just pointing out the obvious.

No.

No, I find it unfunny because it is, Leftard. As to "cunt" you're obviously too stoopid to realize that's an extreme insult to any straight man. But since you take it up the ass and suck cock, I guess that's not an insult to you.



😺 Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't. 😠 Let's go, Brandon! 😎 Slava Ukraini! πŸ˜‹ Member of PETA: People Eating Tasty Animals

No.

Just as I thought.
You are a virgin.
Figures since no woman, or man ever wants to touch you or to have you touch him.

If you are straight you are so desperate that you would not say no to sex with a tranny!
And I bet you have a Fleshlight and a sex doll that you use frequently.

Too bad your sister turned you down when you wanted to do it with her.

No.

Nope, not a virgin, dumb ass, though I suspect that you are. In fact, I just fucked your sister last night, and she's a really bad lay, but not as bad as your mother. Though your mother did say she enjoyed taking it up her ass from you!



😺 Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't. 😠 Let's go, Brandon! 😎 Slava Ukraini! πŸ˜‹ Member of PETA: People Eating Tasty Animals

No.

Whatever.
You are boring.
Goodbye until next time.

You can go back to your sex doll now, virgin boy.

No.

So you're finally admitting that I've kicked your ass, and you're quitting, eh pussy? So now you can go back to your boyfriend and get it up your ass, and then suck his cock!



😺 Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't. 😠 Let's go, Brandon! 😎 Slava Ukraini! πŸ˜‹ Member of PETA: People Eating Tasty Animals

No.

Naw.
I just got better things to do than to do waste my time with a troll any longer.

No.

Oh, so you're a LIAR as well as a cocksucker and a butt fucker?? I thought you were done with me, pussy?



😺 Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't. 😠 Let's go, Brandon! 😎 Slava Ukraini! πŸ˜‹ Member of PETA: People Eating Tasty Animals

No.

Face it.
We are in loooovvvve with each other because one just cannot quit the other!

No.

We're obviously in love with fighting with each other!
