Sean Connery passes away
« on: Today at 09:56:57 AM »
As the maniacal villains always liked to say.... Good-bye, Mr. Bond.

My first experience with Bond was Roger Moore. I had seen a couple of his films before my mom told me I needed to go back and watch the "real" James Bond. I liked them, but they seemed dated to my teenage mind. I don't know how much not seeing them in real time, or being spoiled by 80s action films, informed that opinion. Over time I grew to appreciate the Connery films, even if they are a bit silly at times. And I never thought that was Connery's best work. I always thought he got better as he aged, and preferred his later work. When I think about him, I actually think of Henry Jones, Sr. To me that is the quintessential Connery role.
