My dad took me to see "Thunderball" in the theater when it first came out.

After that, the two of us going to see a new James Bond was "our thing." Well, he'd also get me into "R" rated movies that were violent if it was a GOOD movie.

He would have liked the Daniel Craig Bond. Closer to the Bond of the books, IMHO.

And YEAH, we shared those, too. And Matt Helm and Doc Savage books.

I really liked the original JB books and enjoyedthe first films - Dr No and From Russia with Love - but then they had to drag in all the silly gadgets and went OTT with special effects. Each film was progressively sillier than the last. Even the first Daniel Craig - started out good but, when I saw him take a defibrillator from the glove compartment of his car and self administer, I dissolved into fits of laughter and had to leave the cinema. Have not dared go to see his other one or Skyfall.

I have applied to be a book giver on World Book Night next year and have asked to give away Casino Royal as the last two books would have been better for girls.
