"I'm a woman and can't be taken for granted. Life's a bitch, now so am I."
Robert Rodriguez made us wait an agonizingly long seven years before he felt that the script for the follow-up to Sin City was good enough to go into production, but the extra three months it took for him to choose the actress to play the femme fatale in the movie were almost unbearable. It was recently revealed that Eva Green has been selected to play Ava Lord in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, inspired casting that already has fans of the original movie and of the comic books created by Frank Miller salivating for opening day.
You can't have a great hero without a great villain. After all, it's the dastardly actions of the villains that provide the necessary obstacles for the heroes to overcome to achieve their greatness. But, just because a villain is evil to the core, that doesn't mean that she can't also be incredibly sexy. Help us choose the movies that have the hottest, the sexiest, the deadliest female villains.

"He was your friend. And now he is your enemy and you will kill him."
In 1989, Eon Productions, the company responsible for all 23 James bond movies, began a lawsuit with studio MGM over foreign broadcast rights to the Bond movies that would delay the follow up to Licence to Kill. Despite not performing to box office expectations, Timothy Dalton was still in line to play 007, but as the delays continued, he eventually stepped down from the role in 1994.
Replacing Dalton was Pierce Brosnan who was almost cast as James Bond in 1986 but couldn't accept the role due to his contractual obligations to the TV show Remington Steele. Eschewing the darker tone of Licence to Kill, GoldenEye brought Bond back to his suave, womanizing roots, prompting the new M (Judi Dench) to call Bond a "sexist, misogynist dinosaur."
GoldenEye, the first movie not based on material by Bond creator Ian Fleming, sends Bond to Russia to keep the GoldenEye satellite weapon from the Janus crime syndicate, while a former colleague (Sean Bean) plots to use the satellite to cause a global meltdown.

Ian Fleming wrote his first James Bond novel in 1952, and finished 11 novels total before his death in 1964. The legacy of Fleming's creation lives on in the movies, the 23rd of which, Skyfall, has earned over a billion dollars in worldwide box office.
Of course, with that many movies in the series, it might seem difficult to be conversant on a character like James Bond with only 8 hours to work with, but we've come up with a group of Bond movies that spans the character's 50 years of cinema and will help you talk like a Bond expert in no time. And for anybody looking to be conversant in Bond, you're in luck — all four of the Bond flicks on the list are airing this month on Reelz.celebrating 50 years of bond

There's no doubt that James Bond is one of cinema's most enduring heroes. Without him, the fictional world would have been destroyed several times over. However, it isn't often that we think about the illegality and collateral damage left in the wake of Bond's methods and "license to kill."
Though the super spy franchise has been on the silver screen for more than half a century, it's clear that James Bond is still going strong. The character's latest installment, Skyfall, has earned more than $1 billion in worldwide box office. To celebrate Bond and his 50 years in movies, Reelz is airing sixteen Bond classics throughout February. Before the 007 extravaganza begins, we thought we'd take the time to go over the list of crimes committed by Bond over the course of his long career. Sure, everything Bond does is "for Queen and country," but, apparently, that means turning a blind eye to a lot of sins. The following is an excerpt of Interpol's report on Britain's most dangerous spy.celebrating 50 years of bond

"Just a drink. A martini, shaken, not stirred."
This is a big year for James Bond. Ian Fleming's iconic British spy celebrated 50 years as a motion picture hero on Oct. 5th, the golden anniversary of the debut of Dr. No in theaters, and the 23rd James Bond movie, Skyfall, will premiere in just one week in the U.K. (we Yanks have to wait until Nov. 9th). If you're a movie buff, chances are you've seen your fair share of James Bond movies over the years and you likely have your preference of Bond actors, whether Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, or the latest, Daniel Craig. But, just as 007 is superior to the other 00s in the service of Her Majesty, not all James Bond movies are created equal. Put on your tux, down a martini and help us sort through 50 years of James Bond movies to select the best of the best.

Everything old is new again
Reboot. To many self-styled movie aficionados, the word has come to represent everything they perceive to be wrong with Hollywood. They complain that the increasing number of reboots — six already this year, with many, many more on the way — is a sign that movie studios have simply run out of ideas. But, though the word describing them may be relatively new, Hollywood has been rebooting franchises for a very long time. Sherlock Holmes, Superman, Tarzan, James Bond, Batman — the longevity of these characters as cinematic icons has depended upon periodic reinventions to keep them fresh (we're still waiting for Tarzan's). Obviously, some reboots are better than others, which is why we want you to help us rate the Top 10 Best Movie Reboots.
