52 in 52: Watch all of the James Bond movies

“52 in 52″ is a list of things that I would like to complete throughout 2014. Click here to the whole list.

 

I’m a huge fan of action movies, and anything that involves espionage and spying. Needless to say James Bond was right up my alley, and I’ve loved watching them since I was a kid (although I had some hatred for Pierce Brosnan that I can’t explain).

Finally this year, I thought it would be fun to watch all of them in the space of a year. Side note – I had planned on watching them in the correct order, but being on a plane and not remembering the order meant that I accidentally watched a couple of them in the wrong order.

As I have been watching them, it’s quite fun to read up on IMDB about the movies and find out some trivia. For example, Live and Let Die has love scenes with a black woman, which were stripped in South Africa due to the government at the time. Reading trivia on movies is a love of mine, although I’m sure it gets annoying for the people around me when I interrupt the movie with a “did you know…”.

Below is a running list of all the movies, and my status on where I’m up to (in the format of Title – Year). Some I have seen before (basically all of them from 1995 onwards) some I will have never seen before. Either way, I can’t wait to see all of them during 2014.

 

  • Dr. No – 1962
  • From Russia with Love – 1963

  1. Since, I try to write a review on each film I watch, I can’t do projects as ambitious as every Bond film because it’d take forever. So I go for smaller scope.

    This year I’ve done 4 Marilyn Munroe films, 5 Billy Wilder films and I’m about to start working my way through some John Wayne films.

    The two big filmographies I’d like to do eventually is review every major Hitchcock film (about 40) and every Coen Brothers film (about 20).

Let me know your thoughts!
