Let's Talk Bond 007 Movies & Music by Grace Jones 🎤

in CineTV5 months ago

For my Hive Blog Today let's discuss an old Movie about BOND ~ I mean "James Bond" with the exclusive "License To Entertain" 007 millions of viewers. I remember this particular Movie as one of my favourite Bond films of the eighties (1985 if I remember correctly). I'm not good at exact release dates without looking it up, just me being lazy 🤣

"A View To A Kill" was one of the few Bond films that I never actually saw at the Cinema. One of our children was born around that time, so not much opportunity or the energy to go out very often. Too busy feeding the Baby and changing nappies if I remember.

Instead we would hire films from our local BlockBuster's Rental shop on a "One Night" rental. VHS and BetaMax Format began before the birth of DVD players. At the time I could only afford to buy the cheaper BetaMax machine. The problem being that there was less choice of films to rent on the shelves.

So one evening, when everyone was in bed asleep I finally got to watch "A View To A Kill" on my TV in peace and quiet for a change. "Roger Moore" plays Bond 007 in his usual way, with lots of cool gadgets and all those many "One-Liner" jokes. A usual "car chase" of course had to be included, obviously intended to get your blood pumping!

However, they was something very different about this Movie, a new refreshing change of the normal way that the women acted in a Bond Movie. Enter "Grace Jones" with dramatic effect! At the time I only knew Grace Jones as a Music Artist, a black soul singer to be precise.

I loved her songs (I will try to find one) but was really surprised to see her acting in a Movie. She played "May Day" the Baddies little helper, who you really would not want to annoy. Her acting performance was brilliant as the tall, feisty, & strong willed "Black Woman" who slowly changes sides from "bad" to "good". Actually protecting Roger Moore instead of being the normal useless Bond female who can't do anything except utter the words: Ohhh! James (I think you know what I mean).

Finally I have found one of "Grace Jones" best songs on YouTube ~ Here you go.... Have a listen 😎

I'm pretty sure I saw this film as a kid. You know people hardly mention Roger Moore, but he was quite a charming bond.

I think most people have seen this one at some time, quite old Movie now I guess.

Personally, I think Roger Moore was a great Bond ~ Very English (amusing) and I loved all the high tech gadgets, which we don't seen to have so much of in the more recent Bond Movies.

I would really love to see "Jason Statham" play the Bond role, he would be awesome I think! Maybe one day, before he's too old LOL

Statham is cool and does decent jobs in Guy Ritchie films. Not sure whether I'd like him as bond but it would be interesting nonetheless.
He already has acted in some action films that would fit nicely beside any bond film (except the recent one).

I really like Daniel Craig and what they've done with the bond franchise by the way. It's mature and serious now.

I am most definitely a fan of Daniel Craig, I also liked Brosnan ~ My worry is that they are both older now. Maybe it's the right time for someone younger.

Just my thoughts... 🤔 !PIZZA
