First things first yes I am fairly certain that's a real photograph of Joel Edgerton with his bandaged fist stuffed down his boxer shorts -- it fits in with the other shots taken for Tim Palen's book of photographs taken for the movie Warrior anyway. (Check out these other shots of him and Tom Hardy and swoon.) And with that greeting, a happy birthday to Joel today! In his honor, a beard-off! .
(This is also a fine way to forget his hairless turn as Ramses in the godawful Exodus: Gods and Kings -- best forgotten for all of us.) .
"First watch Moonraker, because it's Jaws in love and it's also really sexy. Then watch Octopussy because Louis Jourdan is the villain and it's also really sexy. RIP, Sir Roger Moore."
"Live and Let Die is amazing. It's the blaxploitation Bond! It has Jane Seymour as a virginal tarot card reader! It has voodoo! It has Yaphet Kotto! "
""Golden Gun" has one of the alltime best villains. Christopher Lee manages to be genuinely funny and genuinely frightening at the same time. Him just putting the gun together is a lesson in how to underplay a scene but still be the one everyone's watching."
"A View to a Kill is only worth watching for Grace Jones and the sheer terror Roger Moore is barely concealing during their love scene together. RIP my favourite Bond."
--- With the passing of Roger Moore I asked y'all to offer up one of his Bond flicks to watch - I've never seen a one! - and I got many fine suggestions. Which would you pick?
