Watch Kees van Dijkhuizen's Better Tribute to 50 Years of James Bond
Let's be honest, that James Bond tribute celebrating 50 years of Agent 007 was really lame. Aside from not having any of the actors who've played the spy over the years, the montage was pretty lame, not giving much screen time to Roger Moore or Timothy Dalton. Word on the street is everyone except for Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan wanted to take part, and the producers decided it had to be everything or nothing (just like the James Bond documentary you can watch right now). But one of our favorite editors, Kees van Dijkhuizen (who delivered his final film retrospective in 2012) has paid his respects. Watch!
Here's Kees van Dijkhuizen's Skyfall: 50 Years of Bond video, found via The Playlist:
Thankfully there's enough of the older Bonds to counter the presence of Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan, the most recent Bond actors which everybody knows. And even George Lazenby makes an appearance. It's a shame that something more flashy couldn't have been done at the Oscars for James Bond. The entire segment should have been scrapped altogether. An iconic character like James Bond, with 23 films in his history and counting, deserves a lot more respect.
