- A series of cold war movies: (The Living Daylights, 2010: The Year We Make Contact, and Spies Like Us)
- Good-guy turned bad guy Jeroen Krabbé playing a Soviet double agent (Living Daylights) and a murderous doctor (The Fugitive)
- Four James Bonds (Connery, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan).
- Lots of amazing and expensive stunts, with planes, trains, cars, trucks, and boats
- Oscar winner Helen Mirren and her impeccable Russian accent (2010)
- Alan Cumming as an adorable computer "hacker" and his adequate Russian accent (Goldeneye)
- Sean Bean with a very believable scar (Goldeneye)
- Brent Spiner with a very unbelievable android skull (Star Trek: First Contact)
- Joe Don Baker playing a CIA operative who is NOT Felix Leiter (Goldeneye) and a insane weapons tycoon (Living Daylights)
- In Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), Q lists the features of Bond's new BMW 7-series "Machine guns, rockets...and a GPS tracking system." But does it have Bluetooth? Backup camera?
It must have been a nice change of pace, especially for Helen Mirren, to make a movie like 2010, where she wore the same loose-fitting jumpsuit every single day of the production. She's the captain of the spaceship and she never even puts a space suit on!
- A completely useless Bond Girl (Maryam d'Abo, Living Daylights)
- A useful and competent Bond Girl (Izabella Scorupco, Goldeneye)
- A Bond Girl more useful than Bond himself (Michelle Yeoh, Tomorrow Never Dies)
- In The Living Daylights, Bond uses the Afghans to overrun a Soviet airbase
- In Spies Like Us, Chase and Aykroyd try to fool some CIA spies posing as UN doctors in an Afghan encampment...I think they became the Taliban?
