Skimpy or Naked Girls Notwithstanding…

I’m always amazed how many things echo or directly borrow from James Bond films.  We’ve been working way through, and have now watched 10 of the 22 movies.  They vary widely in quality and watchability, (I’m looking at you, Diamonds Are Forever & Live and Let Die) but even the bad ones seem to have seeped into popular culture.

We’ve recognized lighthearted references like The Incredibles borrowing the island base from Man With the Golden Gun and a truly ridiculous percentage of The Venture Brothers.  Even the really bad movies are important to the modern visual language in movies and television, although with perhaps less emphasis on naked silhouetted women.
