SkyFall and Final Part of 007 James Bond Retrospective

Upod’s final fling with Bond culminates in an extravaganza of mind blowing proportions. This time we give you not one, not two, but four Bonds for your money and take a detailed look at Skyfall for good measure.

We start by training our sights on the Down Under Bond, Australia’s George Lazenby. One of the very first actor-slash-models, the guy arguably had the toughest job in all of Bond-dom, having to take the baton from Sean Connery. It wasn’t his fault he couldn’t match the hype and to be fair, On her majesty’s secret service is one of my favourites and gives us the first glimpse of a skiing James Bond.

Timothy Dalton gets the treatment next before we talk about perhaps the most important Bond, mr Pierce Brosnan.  If he failed in his mission, it was effectively the end of Bond as we know it: no reboots, no psychotic Sophie Marceau and in the end, no Daniel Craig, Quantum of Solace or of course Skyfall.  OK, we might all have been better off without Quantum, but hell, we’ve been spoiled with Casino Royale and of course most recently with one of the most mature films of the 50 year series; Sam Mendes’ forward looking Skyfall.

This week we are joined by first time guest and proper award winning film director Paul McGhie.
