Tossin’ It Out There: What are YOUR favorite Bond Moments?

Over the course of 22 films, the Bond franchise has given us innumerable memorable moments. 007 has skied off of cliffs, been shoved from a plane without a parachute, defused bombs. He’s driven a mini-copter, a tank, speedboats, and the coolest cars in the world.

He’s saved the world countless times.

Along the way, he’s left us with some of the most iconic scenes and moments in movie history. From his initial introduction scene to Honey Rider emerging from the ocean in Dr. No. The Union Jack parachute unfurling as his theme song kicks in, followed by “Nobody Does it Better” in The Spy Who Loved Me. The parkour sequence in Casino Royale. The laser beam in Goldfinger.

Bond has more than his share of fantastic moments, it’s an abundance of riches. He’s got the gadgets, and gets the girls. The villains stand no chance.

What’s YOUR favorite moment? Is there some scene from the franchise that stands out for you, particularly? A chase scene maybe, or a confrontation with a henchman? Maybe one of his encounters with the numerous femme fatales in his life? There’s so many to choose from!

Pierce Brosnan expressed willingness to return as Bond, but his four picture deal had been satisfied. EON Productions was also considering recasting the role with a younger actor (Brosnan was about to turn 50). After a period of deliberation, when an agreement on a one picture deal could not be reached, Brosnan announced he was retiring from the role, and EON announced they were giving the Bond franchise a “reboot”.

The new Bond? Daniel Craig.
