OUCH. This is like a fork in the eye but I'll go with Dr. No and DAD...

Future casting this or that:

Russell Brand as a wisecracking, poorly dressed, vaguely bi-sexual James Bond

or

Lady Gaga as a transgender but religious M who likes to bake 007 cookies, and often joins him for field exploits where she tends to nag

Stromberg, you're mad! How dare you have me choose one....but...anything better than Brand as Bond so Lady Gaga as a transgender but religious M who likes to bake 007 cookies, and often joins him for field exploits where she tends to nag!!

or

Bond, Goodnight and Scaramanga on Scaramanga's island in The Man with the Golden Gun?

Most Useless Bond Ally:


HMS Ranger crewman; takes control of the situation away from Bond and leads an attack on Stromberg's control room after Captain Talbot is killed with 4 picked volunteers, only to lead himself and them to a quick machine gun death.

OR

Carter; who kept touching his ear, fell into a pit and mis-fired his pistol, scaring away a known bomb-maker and half the crowd, leading to mass destruction and death in the following pursuit.

good one, casino! Tough choice but I'll go with Carter. He really is an idiot and a skid mark on the reputation of MI6. Infuriates me every time I see that scene!

Easy one for me. I don't like TLD...so faithful YOLT with Daniel Craig would be awesome.

A forced cameo in a future Bond movie is inevitable so:

Justin Timberlake

Bloodstone

Bloodstone - some great action and chase sequences in that game, and obviously keeping more in-trend for Craig's current run. Plus I'd love to see that huge dump truck chase on film!


Most Usless Bad Guy:

General Orlov's soldier in 'Octopussy' who comes to check on the train carriage and gets a bullet in the brain from Bond with comedic facial expression to accompany.

OR

Stromberg's goon who is in with the pursuit of Bond and Anya, but being brave he opens and leans out the car with his pistol to take aim, only for Jaws swiflty to pinch his gun, letting him just swing back into the car quietly.

I wasn't aware Elvis was particularly highly rated so I'll say Emile Locque in For Your Eyes Only

Alternate contender for lead Bond actor role casting:

Adam West(TV's "Batman") as James Bond in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

or

Burt Reynolds as James Bond in Diamonds Are Forever?

Reynolds, because they were sort of aiming for an Americanized Bond with DAF...


Most wasted potential for an interesting henchman:

Chang, from Moonraker

or

Dr. Kaufmann, from Tomorrow Never Dies

Dr. Kaufmann - he could have been very interesting in the right hands and better situation.


Most Usless Bad Guy #2:

Mr.Solo in 'Goldfinger'; All talk, but just one big let down and 'crushing' finale with no real point!

OR

Truman Lodge in 'Licence To Kill'; Talks the talk and always looks frustrated with Sanchez, but can't cut the mustard with his big mouth that earns him a few bullets in chest.

Connery, but only if it were a few years prior to '69 when he did it.

Better For Your Eyes Only scene:

or

The epilogue where Max the Parrot tells the PM to give him a kiss?

I like savage political satire as much as the next girl, but I have to go for the pre-title scene, with all that hot helicopter action.
