We use words like "honor," "code," "loyalty." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line.

I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand the post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think you're entitled to!
I read all the books, in order. Craig comes closest to the actual emotional, addicted, and violent mess that James Bond really is in the books. He was not a "good guy" and not "cheeky" like Moore played him.I think Bond is the perfect foil for the notion of "(a role that) can't ever be played by anyone else.
Connery, Moore, Brosnan, Craig, even Dalton and Lasbury - all brought different takes to the same role. We each individually prefer or like one over another but that doesn't change the fact that they all worked... and actually pretty well.
For me, to say there can only be (or ever could've been) one Bond, one Captain Kirk, one Han Solo, one Godfather like saying there can only be one Hamlet, one Macbeth.... it kind of dismisses the whole premise of acting.
Saying that I'm intending to belittle the importance of great casting (pairing an actor to a role) can have on making a great movie. I'm just in the camp that believes that just as any great play can support many different productions.... so great script is likely able to be made into more than one great movies... each spawned from the same source material, but ultimately quite different in their execution.
That was the exact line I was going to quote!!! hahaha. So funny."Hello? Debbie? Yeah, Debbie's here, who's this? Well, Ralph, uh, Debbie can't talk right now, my d*^k's in her mouth. How about if I have her call you back later when I'm done? "
"I love wrong numbers"
I never laughed so hard.
Bond , with his preferences for fast women , fine cocktails and fancy cars would have been considered as the perfect candidate for turning by the opposition .I read all the books, in order. Craig comes closest to the actual emotional, addicted, and violent mess that James Bond really is in the books. He was not a "good guy" and not "cheeky" like Moore played him.
Roger Moore was older than Sean Connery.Don't mean to start a Bond war, but...as much as I like Sean Connery... Bond is Moore. (Or Dalton - I thought they should cast him in that role when he was still Remington Steele. But I've actually never seen him as Bond.) Connery was too old for Bond - especially in the later ones.
Don't disagree with that assessment at all. And though I much prefer Craig over Moore, I'm just more in the camp that doesn't put much stake in things like... the movie is best if it follows book. Coming more from the movie is it's best when it just really good. Much like a cover song.I read all the books, in order. Craig comes closest to the actual emotional, addicted, and violent mess that James Bond really is in the books. He was not a "good guy" and not "cheeky" like Moore played him.
