James Bond has long been one of my favorite film heroes. Growing up I would watch and rewatch my favorite Bond films (mostly taped on VHS from TBS “15 Days of 007” marathons) and although the franchise’s quality is pretty hit-or-miss, I’ll always have a particular fondness for the suave secret agent.
The latest Bond film Skyfall opens today, and I’ve been anticipating it way more than usual due to the amazing cast (Javier Bardem is an inspired villain choice) and director Sam Mendes (of American Beauty / Road to Perdition fame). In honor of the new film, I’ve made the Kiss! Kiss! Bang! Bang! mix (which is what international folk call James Bond movies, as well as an awesome Robert Downey Jr film).
