Growing up, the time that I spending bonding (no pun intended) with my dad was watching James Bond movies and sports.
This is obviously not a blog about sports.
There’s been many that’s played James Bond but let’s be honest, not everyone can pull off the essence of James Bond like Sean Connery. He’s the perfect mix of manly, rough around the edges with a hint of smooth and embodied the character and the ethos of James Bond. I’m not sure everyone agrees with me but Sean Connery was the James Bond I grew up watching.
This weekend was a sad one for true James Bond fans. I woke up on Saturday morning to the news that Sean Connery had passed. Of course, I had to call my dad and we discussed it. I realized that it wasn’t just the movies, it brought back nostalgia. No matter which James Bond you grew up with, there’s just something to James Bond that is timeless and can define an era.
In honor of Sean Connery, here’s a list of James Bond Movies that Sean Connery was in. If you feel like taking a walk down memory lane with me…
- Dr. No (1962)
- From Russia with Love (1963)
- Goldfinger (1964)
- Thunderball (1965)
- You Only Live Twice (1967)
Rest in Peace Sir Thomas Sean Connery. You will be remembered for much more than being James Bond. Thank you for gracing us with your talent.
