Roger Moore died, age 89, on May 23. Moore was the James Bond I grew up on, thanks to ABC's regular broadcasts of Bond movies on Sunday nights when I was a kid. Seven outings as 007, from 1973 to 1985, from one of the most perfect movies (For Your Eyes Only) to one of the worst Bond films (Moonraker). He was the playboy Bond, more lighthearted than his predecessor and far more so than Timothy Dalton.

As this entry's title suggests, I'm watching Pierce Brosnan's last Bond film. Gods, I love Brosnan as Bond. He managed to combine Moore's smoothness and Dalton's and Connery's toughness. Goldeneye is one of my favorite Bond movies - really, outside of DAD, I think Brosnan's run is my favorite. I love Jonathan Pryce's Eliot Carver and Famke Janssen's Xenia Onatopp and the tank chase, just all of it.
