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.

- Thunderball – 1965
You Only Live Twice – 1967

If you could watch a movie series from start to end, what would it be?
