Anne Hedley -> RE: The Best Bond Film? (13/7/2006 10:20:57 PM)
Hi Anne, more of a LOTR fan but Legolas is my favourite character, so it all works out! The first Bond movie I saw was Octopussy and then Moonraker, I remember really liking the action and the humour and how Roger Moore played a more relaxed Bond. I see you a big Sean Bean fan then, im surprised you dont have a picture of him on your profile...

Hi James well we seem to be well in tune with our Bond favourites and who is the more relaxed and best Bond. Yes I do have a great deal of time for Sean Bean and he is excellent as a baddie. He did a TV series in the UK some years ago called 'Sharpe' and it was brilliant and for Christmas I was given the DVD complete set. He is a very good actor indeed, but you have lead me into this wee story.
In 1998 I went to the theatre in London to see my favourite musical 'Oklahoma' and believe me I was in no way prepared for the young man who played Curley. Hugh Jackman played the part and he was awesome - his acting was beyond reproach, his singing was supberb and his dancing - well he did win a Fred Astaire Award for Dancing when he went to Broadway for his performance in The Boy From Oz as well as winning a Tony and Emmy award as well.
Imagine my shock when I discovered he was making his mark on the silver screen gently starting with K & L, Swordfish, and the terrific series X Men 1 , 2 and 3 The Last Stand. He has some damn good films lined up for this year and next too.
He has looks to die for, the body of a Greek God with the personality, charm and charisma to match and very popular with all his felow actors, directors and crew - those are not my word these I have seen in print more than once.
