James Bond Blogathon

Today is the first day of Lazy Eye Theatre's Licensed To Blog: The James Blog-A-Thon. It officially goes through 11/14, but we plan on watching Bond films until we've had our fill of them. Since it's been years since I saw any of them besides the 1st Craig movie that may take a bit more than the 3 days included in the blogathon proper.

Films watched for the event:

Dr. No (1962, Sean Connery)
From Russia with Love (1963, Sean Connery)
Goldfinger (1964, Sean Connery)
On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969, George Lazenby)
The Man with the Golden Gun (1974, Roger Moore)
Goldeneye (1995, Pierce Brosnan)
Tomorrow Never Dies (1997, Pierce Brosnan)

exploding car total so far: 10

I've found some bizarre James Bonds out there:
Tom Hanks
Mr. Incredible

Our Man Flint is a James Bond parody.

There is a video documentary with composers John Barry and David Arnold here.

This video has all those gun barrel film openings (and the one opening that's different) through 2006:

Here are all the posters:
