Moore could make the worst and most bastardized of the lines illuminatingly amusing. Normally, some of his lines, when uttered by someone else would've made one come off as a sleazy prick, but Moore makes it funny which makes him comically likable in return. It's all about having the natural quality, and Moore is the king of the charming lead template.

Favorite Bond Movie: Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, The Living Daylights, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies.
Favorite Movies: There are many to tell, but I prefer something that has a great storyline with loads of escapism and fantastic performance with over-the-top elements which would be pleasing. Action is the main genre I follow, and the spy genre would second that.

Well said, J.P.!

I'm trying to picture Moore in some of the other GoldenEye dialog. I wonder if Dench called his Bond a "sexist, misogynist dinosaur. A relic of the Cold War..." if he might've ad libbed some witty comeback.

I think he'd have given one of his trademark raised eyebrows.

I dread to think what Connery's Bond would have done!
Bring back Bond!
