I saw the 24th James Bond film Spectre earlier today. Before I post my review and other ideas I have regarding the Bond franchise, I thought I’d put up a quiz showing films it has inspired within the past 25 years. Whether it seeking to emulate the action, adrenalin, style and sophistication or gently mock some of 007’s more formulaic and overblown outings, these films all owe a great deal of Bond for creating such a successful spy genre. How many of them can you get? Are you a fan of them or do you resent them? Don’t forget to check out these Bond quizzes if you haven’t done them already (1,2 and 3)
1. True Lies (1994)
2. Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997)
3. The Bourne Identity (2002)
4. Johnny English (2003)
5. Get Smart (2008)
6. Kingsman (2014)
Got’em all! 😉
Nicely done 🙂
Impressive stuff. Have you seen them all?
I have. Kingsmen is my favorite. 🙂
4/6 for me, can’t believe I didn’t recognize Get Smart (that really doesn’t look like Steve Carell there hahah). And Johnny English. What is that .. . .
Johnny English was based on a mumbling agent used in a bank advert. Is that a worse beginning than a computer game?
Reblogged this on Lost Dudeist Astrology.
I’m glad you liked this.
Four out of six.
Not too bad a score. Hope you had a fun weekend.
I got them all right, love spy movies.
Brilliant stuff dude. There were a couple of other spy films that I could have put in. More than you might think. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy, Stormbreaker, Agent Cody Banks, Salt, Spy, The Recruit…
I actually got 3 – good for me
Good for you Derrick 🙂
5/6. Never saw Johnny English so I missed that one. I assumed it was some sort of Mr. Bean movie, lol.
There was a sequel too. Don’t ask!
Got ’em all! Yay me! 🙂
You know your spy movies 🙂 I had no idea you were such a fan. Have you seen all the Bourne films?
I have! 🙂 But I’m not really a spy fan. Don’t even like the Bond films! 😉
You are a fun mass of contradictions. I wouldn’t want it any other way :).
Hahaha! Thanks! 😉
I got 5/6! Missed out on True Lies but I don’t mind that film. Hope you enjoyed Spectre, looking forward to reading your thoughts! I’m finally seeing it tomorrow!
I very much look forward to your thoughts on it.
I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts on Spectre.
Thanks dude. I’ve already started thinking about it.
That’s excellent, we can have a great discussion then once the review goes up.
Got ’em all apart from True Lies. Johnny English is guilty pleasure of mine. It’s quite silly, but man always spend so much time laughing during that film.
Is that the film that has the line: “The only thing the French are hosting is an invasion”?
Ha, yes! There’s a hilarious tunnel singing scene too. Ah, so funny.
I only got 3. Reminds me, I have to watch Kingsman ASAP.
I haven’t seen it either, but if you like the Kick Ass films there’s a good chance you’ll like it.
I already watched Kingsman and I like it! Thanks to this post.
I loved Kick Ass so I really do need to check it out.
4/6. To be fair I actually did like Kingsman and Austin Powers on this list so maybe comedy spy movies are my thing.
There’s far more than you might think. Replying to Vinnie I realised I could easily have made the quiz twice the size.
Mostly fun ones but liked The Bourne ones best, including last without Matt Damon. The Kingman was kind of disappointing. Did you like it?
I didn’t see it. I figured it was one of those films I’d catch at some point.
I got the first three! I probably would’ve done better on a bond spy movies quiz. The Borne Identity is one of my favorites, but I’m not a fan of the others.
That’s not bad 🙂 If you were up for doing a Bond quiz the link is in the main text. I’m writing up a review of Spectre. Fair to say that film has divided opinion ha.
Only 1-3 Mazeltov, me!
Yet there’s the most hilarious (albeit unintentionally, I guess) Bond wannabe in my book: “Licensed to Love and Kill” (The Man from S.E.X). A must see!! (for variety sake)
I didn’t know all of them but Danger is my middle name 🙂
I should so get you this mug ha https://www.thegiftexperience.co.uk/cms_media/images/600x1000_fitbox-danger_mug_a.jpg
AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I NEED IT!!! Then I can say it in a really smug, ridiculous Austin Powers voice 🙂
Not bad Kim 🙂
As you seem to be a spy fan, did you see my review of The Man from Uncle?
I did 🙂 It makes you wonder what other TV shows could become films.
There’s a wealth of shows it could happen too, I’m just not so sure some would work out.
I still haven’t seen Get Smart or The Kingsmen yet. I loved all the other ones – even Undercover Mr. Bean, I mean Johnny English
That’s not a bad description haha.
