Top 5 favorite Bond moments:
I'm an ordinary Finnish boy...Well...Almost ordinary. I seem to be having an enormous obsession on James Bond (if you compare to my friends) so you may predict how liberating it is to find likes of me!
But I have to warn you guys...I absolutely hate the two newest Bond-films, so those Craig-fans who are waiting for beautiful words about him from me, can forget about it
I just love to rank and rate things. Especially if those things are connected with James Bond. I've seen the votes of this website and decided to reveal my own lists. I'll be rating Bond villains, Bond girls, Bond henchmen, Bond's helpers etc.
My Top 10 lists may be weird so feel free to ask me "Why that? That guy/girl/gadget is so lame/ugly/unimaginative!"
Top 10 Bond villains
Notice! This list contains only the main villains. Top henchmen will be revealed in their own list.
I just had to begin with this one. "Villains make the Bond movies." I have said many times. The arguments of rank were how imaginative the villain is, how unique he or she is and how much trouble he or she has caused to Bond.
10. Auric Goldfinger
+Memorable, good plan
-Made many mistakes
9. Emilio Largo
+Scary, the eyepatch
8. Rosa Klebb
+ First woman as a Bond-villain, memorable spike shoes
-Wasn't independent on her actions
+Unique, could win Bond in a fist fight, nearly succeed in his plan, gets the girl
-Lacks the elegance
6. Franz Sanchez
+Rises violence to new spheres, stylish kills
-Trusts no one, keeps an iguana on his shoulder(?)
5. Dr. Kananga/Mr. Big
+Unique double person, was hard to catch for Bond
-Not so memorable plan...
4. Dr. Julius No
+Elegant, hard to catch for Bond, metal hands
-Is shown way too little time in Dr. No
3. Max Zorin
+Elegant but yet deadly, stealthy actions, good story
2. Francisco Scaramanga
+Deadly with style, the golden gun and three nipples, equal with Bond
1. Ernst Stavro Blofeld (played by Donald Pleasence)
I have to apologize from those who were waiting another one but there's nothing you can do to deny this guy's sovereignty.
Blofeld would be sovereign as a single character so I decided to make my decision harder and I chose also the best Blofeld and that was Donald Pleasences interpretation from You Only Live Twice. Once more the question: Why him? Well, if you've happened to hear about one insignificant Dr. Evil you may understand the value of Donald Pleasence giving his face to this character who became a legend even before his face was revealed! In Pleasences Blofeld the whole essence of Bond-villain turns out. He has style, he has plans, he has everything to execute them and he has an army of killers to be sent after Bond! And still he tries to kill 007 by himself also. He's ruthless, he gives no mercy (poor Helga Brandt!) and he doesn't even get killed in the movie! Those are only a few good things in Blofeld of YOLT just to mention. The list would be endless.
And when I close my eyes, I see him as the one and only "cat petting man".
That's why Donald Pleasences Blofeld is on my opinion the greatest of them all.
Top 10 henchmen
This list might be very interesting. It put me think and the results might be very (and this time I mean it) interesting.
10. Professor R.J Dent
+ Loyal for his boss
- Quite invisible
9. Dr. Kaufman
+ Cool confident appearance...
-...which was unfortunately short
8. Mischka and Grischka
+ Cool style of killing
- Got killed too easily
+ Caused Bond quite a trouble, memorable with his hat
- Could have killed more people
6. Tee Hee Johnson
+Unique, good name
- Could have been in the fight against Kananga
+ An evil mastermind which is unusual for a henchman, intelligent
- Doesn't take part to the action
+ Memorable, invincible, strong and tough
- Destroyed by the scriptwriters of Moonraker
+ Exploding milk bottles are cool, saves the whole movie which he appears in
- Not-so-unique look
2. Nick Nack
+ Funny, adds the most fun to The Man with The Golden Gun
- Not so henchman after all
1. Baron Samedi
I didn't even think anyone else to the 1st place: Baron Samedi, the man who cannot die...He's not even the "main henchman" in Live And Let Die so why him?
It's thanks to his mysticality. Baron Samedi looks like a human but after all we don't get to know is he really a human or a voodoo-god. He leaves a big question mark over the movie and forces the viewers to watch it again. And all this because he simply was sitting on a train and laughing. And that laugh! It's creepy and probably one of the most memorable in the history of movies. With those facts I can almost forgive his defeat against Bond (especially because he didn't even die!). Also Baron Samedi is probably the only villain who has appeared as the title of the movie says: Baron Samedi certainly lived and let die!
Red Grant: Probably the most cold-blooded enemy of Bond
Mr. Kidd & Mr. Wint: Bond-films will never meet this kind of enemies again!
Gobinda: Turban headed badass who impressed me.
Stamper: Good old blonde assassin-look brought successfully to the 90s
Top 10 Bond's assistants
To be more accurate, this list contains characters which aren't villains, henchmen or Bond-girls. The list was surprisingly easy to gather compared to two earlier ones. Enjoy.
10. Miss Moneypenny
+ Has been in every single Bond-film except the last two
- Goes never to the field and only drools after Bond.
9. Milos Columbo
+ The only supporting cast member who has killed the main villain
- The attack into Kristatos' hideout organized by him, was pretty much the same as the attack into Piz Gloria in OHMSS
(sorry, no picture..yet)
+ Real badass, good friend to Bond, historical character
- Does almost nothing for Bond
7. Marc Ange Draco
+ Bonds best and only father-in-law, shares the same arch enemy as Bond
- After the attack to Piz Gloria he does nearly nothing
+ Big part of the franchises essence
- Never goes to the field
5. Ali Kerim Bey
+ Helps Bond quite a lot
- Doesn't go Rambo, his past isn't revealed enough much
4. Felix Leiter
+ Most played james Bond-character, Bond's best friend
- Doesn't go Rambo
3. Valentin Zukovsky
+ A good Russian mafioso-like a guy who helps Bond much
- His past stays out of the spotlight
+ Originally played by the most shown actor of the franchise: Desmond Llewellyn, Bond respects Q a lot.
- Don't know...
1. Sheriff J.W. Pepper
The number one supporting cast member from the James Bond-movies is this much talking basic American police.
Sheriff Pepper is the most humorous character in the franchise. Unfortunately he appeared in LALD and TMWTGG with another master of humor, Roger Moore that is.
Pepper isn't much of help for Bond. In fact, all he basically does in both movies he was seen, is scream orders with his American accent. But he's a bit underestimated. See, tough he appeared with Roger Moores hilarious interpretation of James Bond, he invisibly keeps the humor in the events. For example, remember what happened in TMWTGG. Scaramanga just had kidnapped Mary Goodnight and was escaping. Bond had to take the nearest possible car. From the moment he saw Pepper sitting in the car ("Oh NO!") I knew Pepper is the best supporting cast member.
And I sure kept my words. Here you can see this cop (whose wifes cousin Billy-Boy has the fastest boat of the river) being the number one.
Thanks for the humorous moments Clifton James!
Top 10 Bond-girls
This may be the most waited list for those who've been watching my rankings. And finally it's here! The main arguments are the appearance reasons because I searched for the most gorgeous girl. Gentlemen (and possible ladies), the top 10 Bond-girls according to me!
10. Jill Masterson
Phew! It was hard work to find a picture that is suitable for this website and this was the best.
Jill Masterson...The secretary of Auric Goldfinger. This blonde wasn't in my original list but luckily I saw Goldfinger on TV and Shirley Eaton definitely used her another chance right!
Jills gets the points from being seen lesser dressed. Her appearance in her black bikini would pay attention on the beaches even today! After all it's no wonder Goldfinger wants himself to be seen with Jill. At least she beats her sister in looks though she isn't rated so high.
9. Honey Ryder
Just look at her and understand her beauty!
When it comes to Bond-girls Honey Ryder has the biggest value for the 007-franchise. Every single Bond-film director has tried to reach the same effect when showing a Bond-girl in bikini...in vain. The moment this bombshell rose from the water, all the male Bond-fans thanked the God for being a man. The only bad thing comes from her voice which unfortunately wasn't her own.
8. Corinne Dufour
Corinne Dufour ended up on the list in the same way as Jill Masterson. I happened to see Moonraker on TV and MAN she looked gorgeous!
When I first thought about my list, Corinne wasn't in it. I guess it was because the lack of her bosom. But after seeing Moonraker I realized that when it comes to beauty, it's the face that matters. Nothing else. So Corinnes very innocent appearance and cute voice bounced her on the list, even ahead of Honey Ryder!
And I have to admit that Hugo Drax became one of my top 10 worst villains when he sent his dogs to kill this poor little lady.
7. Anya Amasova
This KGB-operative would make a great example of a Russian woman if she was real! Not only she has good looks but she also is as good secret agent as 007. No wonder Karl Stromberg wanted her to become the mother of his underwater people. And GOD Amasova looked sinful in that red suit she was forced to wear in Atlantis!
Just wonder if it was just her skills which she has become the best agent of KGB with...
Halle Berry is always worth of noticing when it comes to the good looks.
Though Jinx' introduction was pretty much rip-off'd from Honey Ryders introduction, she still takes the points from the looks. I mean, good GAWD take a look at the picture above! "Such lovely lines.", that's what sir Roger would note it.
But as said before, the main thing isn't in the strategic places. But I have to give credit to Jinx for both face and curves! When Brosnan was having some fun with her in the bed you may guess how jealous I was...
5. Fiona Volpe
This gorgeous red-haired femma fatale surely deserves her place on this list!
Fiona Volpe was in an important role in Thunderball. She turned the heads of both Bond and Francois Derval. And she proved that her company isn't healthy...
Volpe is amazingly confident character for the entire time she's been showed in Thunderball. And for a good reason...Her devilish smile whispers about her lethality and her hair...My God it looks gorgeous! It pays attention and forces you to keep an eye on its magnificent owner. Volpe also has that something below the head. Though she isn't seen in bikini during the movie, she still gives eye candy in open dresses like the one in the picture.
4. Christmas Jones
Some people say that in The World Is Not Enough Denise Richards was lost in the wrong movie. I'm not trying to prove them wrong but I guess there isn't much people who can deny that Richards sure has the good looks.
The combination of this young woman and nuclear pysicist sounds ridicolous but it sure is interesting. I mean, I had no idea what was going to hatch from that radiation suit. I bet my eyes went at least three times larger when I saw Dr. Jones for the first time. Christmas Jones was at her best in the suit in the picture since we didin't get to see her in bikini. But even that suit was enough to show some flesh of this horny doctor.
