Best Bond

I watched Spectre a few weeks ago and while it looked amazing and clearly had a load of money thrown at it the story was half baked, the action scenes felt incomplete and the script was poop. So an average Bond film then.

It got me thinking as to which Bond films I liked the most. What was my favourite Bond film? Who was my favourite Bond? There’s 24 films to choose from so I grouped the films by actor and ranked them accordingly. That generated the following:

Sean Connery
From Russia With Love
You Only Live Twice
Dr No
Diamonds Are Forever

George Lazenby
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

Roger Moore
Live and Let Die
The Spy Who Loved Me
The Man with the Golden Gun
For Your Eyes Only
A View to A Kill

Timothy Dalton
Licence to Kill
The Living Daylights

Pierce Brosnan
The World is Not Enough
Tomorrow Never Dies
Die Another Day

Daniel Craig
Casino Royale
Quantum of Solace

That made it a bit easier to list my favourite Bond films as follows:

Poor George – great film, shit Bond. If Daniel Craig does sign up for one more hopefully we see more of the criminally wasted Christoph Waltz who ended up being one of the weaker parts of Spectre. If you have seen Spectre, I loved this post that tries to explain it’s ending.

With only a couple of work weeks left of the year I’m looking forward to revisiting some of the old classics again over Christmas. Can’t beat some Little Nellie.



Slightly late and hopefully some of it will be an escape from the doom and gloom surrounding much of the news cycle recently.


Another timelapse, this time of the sun rising over the River Clyde.

I took this from Govan Graving Docks on a cold Saturday morning and apart from some interest in my car (nothing sinister thankfully) it was a good morning for taking pictures.

Clyde Sunset

At the end of September we had some great weather in Glasgow. I headed down to Govan docks one evening and got some good footage with the drone.

I took a bit more time to edit with this one and tried to vary the shots and match with the music. What did take an enormous amount of time was the export from Final Cut. My iMac isn’t really stressed by anything but editing and exporting video needs more oomph. It’s five years old next year so I can see an upgrade within the next 12 months…I’d better get saving.
