What the Oscars’ Bond Montage Should Have Been

Despite Shirley Bassey’s stunning performance of “Goldfinger,” the Oscars’ tribute to 50 years of James Bond was disappointing at best—too loaded with weird visual effects to capture the thrill of the films’ action, and missing the quippy dialogue that makes the character so beloved.

Happily, over the weekend, Kees van Dijkhuizen Jr. uploaded his own montage that does justice to the iconic spy’s real charms. Enjoy.
