Re: Who was James Bond when you were born?

Rog was Bond when I was born. The first film I was taken to was The Living Daylights (still prob my most watched film) when I was eight. Thank god they scrapped the magic carpet scene!

Re: Who was James Bond when you were born?

I was born in 1997, the year Tomorrow never dies came out. Maybe a reason why i love this film so much. So Brosnan, Pierce Brosnan. ajb007/bond

1977, the year of The Spy Who Loved Me.  Roger Moore.

Re: Who was James Bond when you were born?

1971, the year of Diamonds Are Forever, sadly my least favorite of the Connery (EoN) films.

I look for a reason to like them all, that being said- my current favorites by actor
Connery- FRWL                                  Dalton- TLD
Lazenby - I'll go with OHMSS               Brosnan- GE
Moore- FYEO                                      Craig- CR

Born in Brosnan’s debut year of 1995—a great year for me with a great Bond film in Goldeneye.

331

Re: Who was James Bond when you were born?

Roger was Bond when I was born. And the first film I saw was FYEO - the most recent Bond film before my birth in 1982.

Always have an escape plan. Mine is watching James Bond films.

Re: Who was James Bond when you were born?

Sean Connery has passed away at age 90 and some of you were born when he was Bond.

Anyone here born in the Connery era?

333

Re: Who was James Bond when you were born?

I was born in 1957 and my first Bond film in a theater was Goldfinger in '64. I then played catch-up with a re-release double feature of DN and FRWL then on to TB and every single subsequent Bond thereafter.
The news of Sean Connery passing was quite jarring as he will always be my Bond. Connery brought an unmatched charisma and screen presence to Bond. The impression that Connery's Bond made on me as a youngster was indelible and lifelong as my passion for the Bond films has stayed with me through my whole life. IMO, the greatest Bond, who's talent and charisma continued well beyond the Bond films. No matter what role, what film, when Connery appeared on screen, everyone else appeared to shrink. We are blessed that he will live on forever as Bond and in all the other films he did. Rest in peace my 007.

Re: Who was James Bond when you were born?

I was born between Bonds in 1969, so I get the best of both Sean Connery - who had featured in YOLT - and George Lazenby - who was still filming OHMSS.
It's like having a favourite uncle and a step dad.

Sean! And TB was in theaters.

Re: Who was James Bond when you were born?

The Brosnan era, in between TWINE and DAD.

Re: Who was James Bond when you were born?

Born in between FRWL and GF. Weird to think that the eroticism codified by the first Bond films was part of an increasingly swinging pop culture in which my parents were young people at the time I was conceived!

DAF was my first Bond film in the cinema, soon followed by a series of Connery-Bond double bills. For me, news of Sir Sean's sad passing means the loss of my childhood matinee idol.

Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 49 years.

Re: Who was James Bond when you were born?

I was born in the year of DAF.

Re: Who was James Bond when you were born?

I was born in '64, the year of Goldfinger, and watching DAF in the cinema - my first brush with. 007 - was the seminal moment in my life, sparking a lifelong love for Bond. I nagged my sister to take me to see all the double-bills of the Connery Bonds which were subsequently re-released in the early '70s.

Those who were born in 1983, the year Connery made a comeback in NSNA, does not count!

I was born on the day when Mei Hama and Sean Connery filmed their scenes on the top of a real volcano in Kyushu, Japan.
