007 Days of 007 ’19

In the olden days they ran the “007 Days of 007” on TV. It was fun to put on around the holidays when there was nothing else to do. Last year I tried to replicate it for the streaming era by randomly picking Bond films to watch throughout December. Here are ’19’s films:

  1. Diamonds Are Forever
  2. Live and Let Die
  3. Moonraker
  4. License to Kill
  5. Die Another Day
  6. Casino Royale
  7. Quantum of Solace

Watch them along with me over the course of the month if you’d like.

Why? Are they really all that good? Worthy enough to watch every year instead of much better movies I’ve never seen? Nope! I just like ’em.

Methodology: Using Dice by PCalc I rolled 1D6 representing each Bond actor and 1D8 for each of his films in order, discarding rolls for duplicates from previous years and for films that don’t exist (as in “4, 3,” since Dalton, the fourth actor, only made two pictures). Once I had the list I sorted it by release order. This year we get one from Connery, two from Moore, one Dalton, one Brosnan, and two Craig. There are enough movies to do it for three years without repeating any (almost four). 📽
