Music: Top 5 James Bond Intros

Standard

Each track is very much of its era, as the films are, which is something I love about James Bond: each Bond era represents its own time from when it was made.

#1 – On her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969) by the John Barry Orchestra

Although the track is only instrumental, there’s just something about it that I enjoy so much. I think it just embodies the character of the film and since On her Majesty’s Secret Service is in my Top 5 Bond films so far, you can tell why I like the track too.

#2 –  The Man With the Golden Gun (1974) by Lulu

I think the lyrics of this song were so cleverly done as they basically give you a summary of the film you’re about to watch, of course, I didn’t know that until after I had watched the film and listened to the track a second time.

#3 – The Living Daylights (1987) by a-ha

I really enjoy a-ha’s music anyway, but I really enjoyed this song, and as explained above, it is very much of its era as are the next two songs.

#4 – Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) by Sheryl Crow

#5 – Die Another Day (2002) by Madonna

When I first listened to this song, I wasn’t much of a fan as it was very different to any other Bond soundtrack before it (and after it) and it was very ‘noughties’. However, the more I have listened to it since then, the more I’ve fallen in love with it.

FILM: Top 5 007 Films

Standard

On_Her_Majesty_s_Secret_Service_main-reviewWith the new James Bond film, Spectre, on its way, I wanted to recommend my TOP 5 007 films so far…

#1 – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

I think it’s a shame that George Lazenby never got a chance to play James Bond further since I really enjoyed his version of the character. This film is a really classy stand-alone film with the well-known villain Blofeld opposite our hero Bond.

#2 – The Living Daylights

The first of Dalton’s two film stint as Bond was a great introduction to his version of the character. In this film Bond works to prevent ‘an evil arms dealer from starting another world war’. We also see a charming and romantic relationship form between Bond and supposed Bond Girl Kara Milovy.

(License to Kill, Dalton’s second bond film, was close to making my top 5 since it had a fantastic story showing Bond try to avenge the injuries his friend, Felix Leiter, received from Sanchez, the villain, and the death of Felix’s new wife.)

It’s also a shame, like Lazenby, that Dalton didn’t have much more time as Bond as I really enjoyed his angsty and emotional Bond.

casino_royale_poster_by_comandercool22-d6aichh#3 – Die Another Day

Genuinely loved the concept of this film, one which I can’t really speak about without ruining part of the plot, but it really is good.

‘James Bond is sent to investigate the connection between a North Korean terrorist and a diamond mogul who is funding the development of an international space weapon’. 

#4 – Casino Royale

Marking the beginning of a new era of James Bond, a new reimagining of the series and a new Bond (Daniel Craig), Casino Royale is swarve, classy and full of surprises.

#5 – Skyfall

Action packed and thrilling, Skyfall kept me on the edge of my seat by making me worry about what was going to come next. I really enjoyed the film and its attempt to delve into the pasts of Bond and M. The villain, Silva, was creepy and fun to watch while also being terrifying. I also enjoyed seeing Bond’s vulnerability – something that hasn’t been featured too much before which makes the character seem more human.

So there we are, my top 5, however, being a massive fan of James Bond, of course I do love all the other films too and would truly recommend a good marathon before Spectre comes out on the 26th of October.

Tech: Top 5 Apps

Standard

Most people have smartphones and tablets now-a-days, so it’s only right to recommend some apps every now and then. These apps I all have on my iPod Touch and are available from the iTunes app store but they should all be available on android app stores too, such as Google Play.

#1 Social Media – Instagramapps

I love Instagram, it’s an easy and fun way to keep up with the lives of your favourite people and celebrities. Instagram allows people to post images and captions instead of text posts such as statuses and tweets as seen on Facebook and Twitter.

#2 Story-based Games – Runway Life

I’ve recently been playing this game and been loving it too much. In the game, you have started your own fashion company and are required to hire models, buy clothes, and design your studio to make a successful company of your own.

#3 Wellbeing – Calm

This app allows you to meditate by listening to a calming soundtrack and looking at a calming image either with or without instruction. I find this very useful just before I go to sleep to clear my mind and I think you’ll find it equally helpful, if you also have a mind that never shuts up.

#4 Community Social Media – Strawburry17

I love this app for it brings the Strawburry17 fandom together and allows the Strawburry17 audience to interact with all the SB17 team in one place.

Strawburry17 is a YouTube channel set up and run by Meghan Camarena, who works with a whole team of brilliant people to provide interesting and unique content. See her channel here.

#5 Time Wasting Games – White Tiles, 1010! And Magic Touch

Okay, I couldn’t pick between three games but hey, three for the price of one! White Tiles is a fast paced game based on tapping a black tiled moving screen. 1010! is a tactical game using ideas based on Tetris by clearing lines in a cube by placing different shaped tiles strategically. Magic Touch is a Nitrome game which involves tracing the lines or images seen in bubbles to pop said bubbles before they reach the bottom of the screen. All three are addicting and will make you and your friends fight for the best score.
