Ah, Eric – at the risk of invoking a spot of unseemly celestial favoritism – sometimes your charming completist knowledge is something of a God-send









we really couldn’t - and wouldn't wanna - do without!



So we hereby, via the Lois 007 Legacy Award,



demand you stand up and accept your Bondian BRAVO!!!!!!! big grin

Sooooooo, for Tomorrow’s starters Today, howzabout fetching Cecilie Thomsen



as Prof. Inga Bergstrom



(which led to one of our favorite impish Moneypenny quips:



"You always were a cunning linguist, James"!) wink



Can ya blame the lucky bloke???!!!! big grin

I hope Eva Green and Maryam D'abo deservedly stay off the Yum list.

Christina Cole (CASINO ROYALE) DOES deserve to be on the Yum list.

And how about Martine Beswick (FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE, THUNDERBALL) on the Yum list?

I strongly disagree. Both of those women were cute as hell... and I'd take the sultry Eva Green over Minnie "chipmunk cheeks" Driver any day of the week.

Truthfully, I wouldn't take any Bond girl post-1983 except for Izabella and Halle!

Not that we're in any way Official or anything but what we wanna know is: what YUM list are ya referrin' to?

'Cause if they're in the EON harem of hot hunnies, they're gonna be included here later if not sooner.



As for yu, HooRaq, far be it from us to ultimately Jinx things but,



boy, you're a hard man to please ... wink

When so many of my favorites are in a certain time period, I do admittedly get more discriminating when it comes to later eras. smile

Besides, at least my #1 still *makes* the general top ten lists put out today! big grin

We found Teri Hatcher



As Paris Carver





possessed of a sweet vulnerability we hadn’t anticipated.



She wasn’t shallow and



and she didn’t disappear into the scenery but held her own honestly



with a gentle yearning



yet confident exterior



that belied her inner fragility.



Mayhap not among the first tier of most memorable Bondian women,



but not one to overlook, either ...

Which brings us to the wondrous Michelle Yeoh as Wai Lin.



Not only is she one of the strongest presences to anchor and adorn Bond(wo)mania, she also had a effortless physical authority



to say nothing of a make-you-sit-up-and-notice her all-around feminine attributes



and make you believe she was more than capable of not only holding her own



but be on her own with no trouble whatsoever - no quarter given or asked.



With a most becoming confidence and subtle sexiness,



she belongs on the A-List of any self-respecting Bond admirer ... wink

TWINE I thought was a big improvement over TND (my least favorite Brosnan Bond film). The females were better too. smile

It was also somewhat bittersweet seeing TWINE theatrically just a week or so after Desmond Llewelyan's death, and knowing that this was the last time we'd ever see the last remaining on-screen vestige of the golden age of Bond films to entertain us.

Great Minds Department! wink

Absolumundo! That (unexpectedly final) farewell scene is one of the most touching sequences ever scripted; when Bond quietly (but affectionately) asks "You’re not really retiring … are you?" always elicits a lump in our throat, not least for Q’s equally unforgettable reply.







Her Majesty’s

I love Desmond but....

his last few appearances were embarassing; he obviously didn't even know his lines or couldn't memorize them.
The producers should have shown some class by not continually dragging him back>

Sometimes Looks Are Quite Enuff Department:



We’ll go on record that we don’t generally find nubiles the most visually nutritious or intoxicating as a matter of personal taste and preference, so casting Denise Richards as a scientist, for Vesuvius’ sake, didn’t just stretch our combined sense of disbelief, it damn near imploded the concept altogether.



As Christmas Jones (who got a Bond bonus for that one?!), she was no match for any of her feminine co-stars but was perfectly plausible – and not unpleasing – doing what she does best:



filling out apparel designed to parade across the screen all her most attractive assets.



Mind you, she does dew that duty well



no matter where, when or what.



Now, don’t even mention the word actress; it’s an insult. As a Looker, however,



that’s a part nature (and family genes) made sure she could play impressively ...

One aspect that hasn’t abated within this wondrous franchise is their ability to cast total unknowns in roles that benefit from their initial anonymity yet still stands out when they’re inhabited by women whose charisma (no less than beauty) makes you sit up and take tantalizing notice.

Few, we’d reckon, had been widely (um) exposed to Maria Grazia Cucinotta



before she appeared as Cigar Girl



during that thrilling boat chase down the Thames.



Her latent fire and unmistakable allure makes one wish she had more screen time, tho it’s enough of a tribute that she makes the obligatory pre-credit sequence sizzle all on her combustible own.







She may have gone out with a bang (including an equally eye-catching stint a coupla years ago on The Sopranos)



but she's left an equally explosive impression ... wink
