Am I excited for Skyfall‘s big premiere on November 9th? Does The Dark Knight Risescontain plot holes? Obviously I’m tremendously excited. I’ve been jogging at night with Bond theme songs playing on my iPod, pretending imaginary assailants are chasing after me, my every step maybe my last. Unfortunately I got so wrapped up in this fantasy that I ran right into the bad part of town and actually did have people chasing after me. They didn’t have teeth made of sharp steel or deformed eyes that cry blood, but that doesn’t mean their severe beating felt any better.
Anyway, as we near the 23rd Bond movie to mark the franchise’s fiftieth anniversary, we’ve been counting down with the Best of Bond and today we feature my favorite 007 one-liners. The Daniel Craig-era of the spy has seen a push away from the cheesy innuendos and puns, but they’ll always be engrained into the series DNA. Without them, Mike Myers would never have been able to make Austin Powers. But then that would also mean he would never have made the two sequels, so it’s a tough call.
While I try to figure this one out, check out our 10 Best 007 One-Liners.
