News:: In defense of Roger Moore

This week we heard the sad news that Roger Moore had passed away. If you're like me it hit you pretty hard, because if you're like me Roger Moore's James Bond is something you love. A lot of people are not like me. Most don't outright hate Moore's Bond, but he's often relegated to the position of hanger on when it comes to discussing Bond actors despite the fact that he was the most tenured. Almost no one ranks him as their favorite Bond, and most like to pile on his films even if they don't outright dislike them.

However, Moore's Bond isn't bad. He couldn't have been all that bad to make seven successful Bond films over the course of 12 years. But more than that he's actually a really good Bond. Maybe in this day and age of "super serious action peoples" his tongue-in-cheek turn seems disrespectful, but in fact Moore's Bond was anything but. Roger Moore was a great Bond, and it's pretty easy to see why.
