Only seen the odd random tag matches from them, might go looking for more now that you mention it.
On Bond I'll agree with Goldfinger and TRWL as 1 and 2, saw Skyfall the other week and thought it was pretty good but the member here of the same name claiming it as the greatest british movie ever made is one of the dumbest things Ive ever read here.
Sent you the link for 'em.
Yeah neither are blessed with natural agility and there's the odd move which looks flubbed but their violence, presence and ability to construct a deeply emotional and intense match more than makes up for any fluffed execution from time to time. The fact more often than not any slight mishap looks to have seriously hurt the opponent more on account of being unprotected and ungodly stiff also adds to its charm.
Hashimoto/Regal is also astoundingly great. Hashimoto/Fujiwara '94 is another match I'm really fond of but I don't know if a link even exists at this point which is a massive shame.
