Seeing as I've been on a bit of a TOP GEAR kick lately, I thought this might be in order here:

Rumors are flying that Christopher Nolan may handle the next Bond film. I'd be very happy to see that happen. I'm sure we'll know before the end of they year.

And I sincerely hope it doesn't happen. But we've had that discussion before.

I finally watched Skyfall a couple of weeks ago, and I absolutely loved it. In fact, I can honestly say that it's the first Bond film I've ever loved on a first viewing. I've just never gotten Bond, though a rewatch of the Connery Bond films a couple of years ago had me liking them a lot---the first times I tried to watch them, I was either too young or too distracted to get them.

The dispute over the rights to THUNDERBALL is what killed Ian Fleming. It's all set out in the main biographies.

I vividly recall arriving for work as a copy boy at The Vancouver Sun at six o'clock in the morning and seeing the report of Fleming's death on the overnight wire service.

What a shock! He was in his mid-fifties and the Bond movies had just taken off.

Last week, I finished reading SOLO, the new Bond novel. It's set in Africa when Bond turns 45, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Now I'm back to finishing my re-read of all the Fleming novels in order. I'm at THUNDERBALL. The big question will be: Is ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE a better novel than FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE, and therefore the best Bond novel of all?

We'll see.

It's too bad he died before he could see just where Bond would go over the years.

I suppose that has happened to many authors over the years, though.

Lovecraft is a good example. And Jane Austen a huge one.

Let's keep the Slade fires burning much longer. Or at least until a few more novels get written please?

But certainly I wonder what Fleming would think of the direction his stories took and the various portrayals of his iconic character. Who would he think represents the perfect bond?

Daniel Craig is my fav. Grew up on Roger Moore cause I dug his gadgets. Pierce did a marvelous role. Those are my top 3 picks for the character.

For me, the two best films until Craig came along were Connery in DR. NO and FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE.

In my reading of all the Fleming novels in order, tonight I start ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE, which fits with snow and winter. Will it beat FROM RUSSIA as the best of the Bond novels? We'll see.
