Waiting for Mr. Bond

We are all aware of the seemingly increasing gap between Bond movies, especially as we wait for the eventual release of No Time To Die. While doing some research for an article I put together this visualization to compare the historical gaps between the EON produced Bond movies.

A few things that stood out to me:

  • The release schedule of the early Connery movies wasn’t as consistent as I’d thought.
  • The shortest wait has been 7 months (Between From Russia With Love and Goldfinger), and the longest will be 5 years assuming No Time To Die is actually released in November 2020.
  • The Roger Moore era was the most consistent in terms of a release cadence.
  • What we think of as the “traditional” November release date is far from traditional with movies being released in January (2), May (3), June (4), July (3), November (7) and December (5). – The November release date “tradition” only started with Goldeneye.

Bond Music: Six of the Best listens to Never Say Never Again

This episode’s session is all about NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN. Alan has the lead on this episode and the lads will provide factoids and discussion on the main title song, 6 of their favorite tracks (hence the title of the podcast), and a bonus remix…maybe more!  The numbering scheme is always subject to chaotic change!

What will the boys make of the non-EON soundtrack? What did Bonnie Tyler think? And will the lads be able to find some gems in this not-terribly-well-thought-of score?

Bond Music: Six of the Best is For Your Eyes Only

This episode of Bond Music: 6 of the Best is all about FOR YOUR EYES ONLY. Alan has the lead on this episode and the lads will provide factoids and discussion on the main title song, 6 of their favorite tracks (hence the title of the podcast), and a bonus remix…maybe more!  The numbering scheme is always subject to chaotic change!

What will the boys make of Bill Conti’s efforts? What happened in the 007 world at the 1982 Oscar ceremony? Will your hosts be able to make it last all night? Yikes!

Bond Music: Six of the Best reviews Moonraker (with a special guest).

This time around co-hosts Alan J. Porter & Jarrod Alberich, are joined by a special co-host on loan from “The 00 Files” podcast – Don Zuiderman!

This episode’s session is all about MOONRAKER. Jarrod has the lead on this episode – but he kindly handed his picks over to Don – the lads will provide factoids and discussion on the main title song, 6 of their favorite tracks (hence the title of the podcast), and a bonus remix…maybe more! 

Have we finally found the shortest 007 soundtrack? Will we get the definition behind the meaning of “six of the best?” Maybe even the definition of what a “moonraker” is?
