James Bond 007 Marathon, #22 Quantum of Solace and Recap

Tonight we watched #22, “Quantum of Solace” (2008). The female lead was incredible, the plot was top notch especially the continuity with the previous film and there wasn’t a gadget to be seen. Not one. The theme song was something to be desired. Even so, this might be our favourite movie of the bunch. In order to erase the uncertainty, we will be watching “License to Kill” tomorrow night just to make sure.

Ed gave it a “9” rating and I gave it a “10”.

To sum up our Marathon, Ed and I both voted Pierce Brosnan our favourite Bond. I mean, he IS Bond and everyone else is just trying to emulate him. Our favourite theme songs were those where the song matched the movie; For Your Eyes Only by Sheena Easton, A View to a Kill by Duran Duran, License to Kill by Gladys Knight, Live and Let Die by P. and L. McCartney and GoldenEye by Tina Turner.

In summary, below is the movie and what Ed and I (in that order) have rated it.
1. Dr. No, 6, 6
2. From Russia with Love, 5, 8
3. Goldfinger, 7, 7
4. Thunderball, 8, 9, (7.5 for Poppa)
5. You Only Live Twice, 7, 7
6. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, 6, 5
7. Diamonds Are Forever, 7, 8
8. Live and Let Die, 6, 7, (7 for Poppa)
9. The Man with the Golden Gun, 7, 9
10. The Spy Who Loved Me, 7, 7
11. Moonraker, 6, 7
12. For Your Eyes Only, 8, 9
13. Octopussy, 8, ???
14. A View to a Kill, 8, 8
15. The Living Daylights, 6, 8
16. License to Kill, 9, 10
17. GoldenEye, 7, 8
18. Tomorrow Never Dies, 8, 9
19. The World is Not Enough, 8, 8
20. Die Another Day, 7, 7
21. Casino Royale, 7, 8
22. Quantum of Solace, 9, 10
