Hello and welcome to this week's edition of Movie Clip Wednesday. The wonderful Boxer has continued to let me host and this week's theme is "best opening scene". While there are many, I had to narrow it down to all the James Bond movies. I have the Scene It edition of Bond and am undeafeted while playing. Although there are many I narrowed it down to two. The first is my all time favorite Bond beginning. It's the first time since the death of his wife in On Her Majesty's Secret Service that we are reminded that Bond was married. It's also the last time that Ernst Stavro Blofeld who was my favorite bad guy makes an appearance. One of the reasons I like Roger Moore so much as Bond is because he was always so cool under pressure and this scene is the best example of that. Enjoy and thanks for participating. Next week's theme is "movie that when I see it while channel surfing I stop and watch no matter what part of the movie is showing".
The second is from Dr. No. The best theme song EVER. I just love it when the music starts playing and Bond pulls something out of his ass. Totally awesome. I can still remember the first time I saw the movie and thought Bond was the coolest guy who ever lived. Enjoy. I couldn't find a clip where he says for the first time "Bond. James Bond". So disappointed.
