Eh, I've never connected with the Bond movies at all. And by this point, the imagery of the older movies is so dated that of course it looks silly. Besides the surface glamour, what is there to connect with?
If young people can't connect with the emotional content of, say, Casablanca
or It's a Wonderful Life
or Rebel Without a Cause
, then we have more cause for concern, because those types of movies are the timeless ones that transcend the particulars of their era. They're stories about real people with authentic emotions and problems, not glitzy escapist fantasies.
