The newest James Bond 007 movie opens this week, and though we already had a James Bond episode this year, there’s no lack of things to talk about when it comes to Britain’s top super spy!
This week, our panel of James Bond experts, hipsters, and musically uninclined people are here to rank all 24 James Bond theme songs from top to bottom.
Listen as one panelist attempts to sabotage the list by subtly sneaking not-really a James Bond song “Kingston Calypso” too high, another panelist summarizes academic research about what Madonna’s “Die Another Day” lyrics really mean, and another panelist imagines a world where the “Quantum of Solace” was sung by Jack Black instead of Jack White.
We continue looking at weird James Bond 007 videogames by looking at 2004’s JAMES BOND 007: EVERYTHING OR NOTHING for the Gamecube, Playstation 2, and original Xbox. EVERYTHING OR NOTHING marks Pierce Brosnan’s last turn as the British superspy.
It’s also incredibly strange because publisher Electronic Arts pulled out all the stops to make this as close as possible to “The next James Bond movie, but in game form!” To do this, they hired Bruce Feirstein, writer of Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, and The World is Not Enough, to pen the game script. And they filled the game with a star-studded cast of motion-captured automatons, played by Pierce Brosnan, Willem Dafoe, Heidi Klum, John Cleese, and Dame Judi Dench.
