    So... I am a self proclaimed Bond nut. Who else loves this franchise as much as me? :D

    Couple of questions... What/Who is your favourite;

    1. actor who played Bond?
    2. Bond film?
    3. Bond Villain?
    4. Car?
    5. Era?

    My favourites are:
    Pierce Brosnan is my favourite bond, but connery is the best bond.
    Bond film is 'Goldeneye'
    Villain is Dr No
    Car is the DB5 (durr) or the z3 in goldeneye.
    Brosnan era. I grew up on those 4 films.

    Contrary to my user name, I don't care for the films much. Although I do appreciate goldeneye for Nintendo 64

    007 is referring to my tuxedo strat :p just to clear things up

    I gave a eulogy at my stepfathers funeral a few days ago.

    After I thanked everyone for coming, my opening line was that my stepfather always reminded me of James Bond, the Roger Moore version.

    PB, you're real close to my preference but ...

    actor who played Bond? :Daniel Craig.
    Bond film? Goldeneye
    Bond Villain? Ernst Stavro Blofeldt, played by Donald Pleasance in 'You Only Live Twice'. He redefined the word 'sinister'.
    Car? Why the aston martin of course
    Era? The Connery era, those were all great films.

    You forgot to mention the best Bond babe, my nomination is Corinne Cléry who played Corinne Dufour in 'Moonraker'. Absolutely the hottest Bond babe ever, and that's saying something.

    Live and let die best Bond song ..

    Roger Moore was my hero when I was a kid, but Sean Connery is the true Bond.

    Skyfall is a fantastic film - but they're all good ...

    Agree about Skyfall, it's in the top three. As to bond song though, gotta go with Goldeneye. Tina Turner absolutely killed it. Thunderball is a close second.

    I was only interested in the Bond films when I was a kid.

    The only actor I can really accept as the Bond character is Connery.

    The Aston Martin is my favorite of the cars.

    I can't say that I have a favorite film.

    I can say that a year or two ago, one of the old boys on the racing forum sent me an email of the next or current or last Bond girl. It was a whole series of photos and WHUDDA HUBBA WHUDDA!!!!! Mostly on the beach. I don't remember if he even told me her name. So, she's my favorite Bond girl, whoever she is.

    I wait for most stuff to hit cable. No. I wait for everything to hit cable.:D
