The Philosophy of Archer

The Philosophy of Archer

(PG-13) On the surface, the eponymous star of FXX’s Archer may seem like a hyperbolic version of James Bond. But as Wisecrack points out, much of the show’s humor actually lies on turning 007’s escapist maverick image on its head.

Bond Loves Bourne

Bond Loves Bourne

“This fall, discover Bond’s most top secret mission…” Funny or Die imagines a movie where Britain’s best spy and the United States’ amnesiac assassin fall in love. Imagine what Taken would be like if these two were the parents.

Radiohead: Spectre

Radiohead: Spectre

Before they decided to go with Sam Smith, it seems that the theme song for James Bond’s Spectre was going to be sung by Radiohead. As a holiday gift, the band released the track for free. It’s an awesome Radiohead song, but Thom Yorke is still no Adele or Shirley Bassey.

James Bond’s Gadgets

James Bond’s Gadgets

Burger Fiction combed through all the James Bond movies to note most, if not all of the oddly specific gizmos he’s used, from cars with ejection seats to cigarette guns. Roger Moore’s Bond definitely had the wackiest tools. Also Q Branch clearly employs prophets.

24 James Bond Themes in 1 Minute

Musician Chad Neidt performs a rapid-fire medley of every James Bond theme – at least for the official flicks – there’s no Never Say Never Again, and we’re okay with that. And 1967’s Casino Royale had no lyrics, though we would have liked to hear Chad hum it.

SPECTRE (Trailer 2)

SPECTRE (Trailer 2)

The final trailer for the new Bond flick shows some of the perils of being 007, but leaves us with more questions than answers: How is Bond still alive? Will he have a companion with a saucy name? Why do secret organizations have names? What is this movie about?

Daniel Craig’s James Bond

Daniel Craig’s James Bond

Here’s yet another reminder of time’s passing: Casino Royale was nine freaking years ago. YouTuber Steven Thomas put together clips from Daniel Craig’s proto-07 portrayals of James Bond into one video. Sterling Archer must be so proud.
