Roger Moore has always been my James Bond. Sure you grow older and find all the Connery ones where he is ice cool and you remember the two classic Dalton ones and seeing Craig and Mikkelsen together is always a good one, but still, give me Live And Let Die, A View To A Kill, The Man With The Golden Gun.
Moore knew the ridiculousness of the character. What you had was a guy traveling round the world, sleeping with super hot ladies and some how avoiding getting killed by all the most evil people on the planet. A simple plot, used again and again. So many times when the enemy had Bond beaten and could have just put a bullet in his head, but then we would not have anymore car chases, classic theme songs, or decadent visits to the casino for a tasty drink, shaken not stirred.
So long James Bond.
