My wife and I are both big James Bond fans. If there's a Bond marathon on TV, we watch every movie. I grew up in the 70's and early 80's, when the previews of hits like "Moonraker," "For Your Eyes Only " and "The Spy Who Loved Me" were all over TV. For that reason, as a kid, I came to recognize that Roger Moore WAS James Bond. As I got older, I learned to appreciate the older flicks with Sean Connery (who eventually became my favorite), as well as the newer ones with Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig. Every actor brought his own unique take, so it's very hard to choose the "best" Bond.
Here are some great moments from Connery and Moore. Rest in Peace Sir Roger. (video courtesy of YouTube)
