While HMSS perhaps might have included Christopher Walken’s “Max Zorin” from A VIEW TO A KILL and Robert Davi’s “Franz Sanchez” from LICENSE TO KILL, (or even Alan Rickman’s “Hans Gruber” from DIE HARD), this is an interesting list of ’80’s film baddies from zencollegekids.com. The list also does illustrate the relatively weak Bond villains of that time compared to the 1960’s and even the 1970’s.

“Biff Tannen”? Ha! Those wacky college kids!

There’s a nice article over at the webzine Suite101.com , praising Timothy Dalton’s all-too-brief tenure as James Bond.
Adrian Peel tees off on the near-universal praise for Daniel Craig’s grittily realistic portrayal of 007, making the case that Dalton set the table for the way we now view James Bond. Indeed, the subtitle of his article is “20 Years Ahead of His Time?”
Timothy Dalton: The Best James Bond is a quick but informative read, and shines some much-deserved light on an unfairly ignored chapter of the 007 saga.
