What We Love About James Bond: The Vice, The Swagger, The Patriotism, And More [CB]

CB: This week the United States finally gets to see Skyfall, the new James Bond film that's been universally praised for what feels like months, and which many are calling the best Bond movie ever (most of us around here agree). The movie has inspired all kind of conversations among movie-lovers about Bond, from listing the characters best films and gadgets and babes to simply wondering how a character so clearly born from the Cold War has managed to stay relevant so long.

We don't really have answers to any of those questions (though if you're curious about all that ranking, click here). We just want to celebrate a character who's captured all of our imaginations over the year, a guy we've all grown up with and who never really forced us to think about just why we found him so appealing… until now, that is. (Cinema, James Bond)
