Definitely GoldenEye. I absolutely hate Brosnan's other films (and I'd rank him at the bottom with Moore) but GoldenEye is undeniably top tier.

Agree on all counts, though TWINE works for me as decent cheese in parts. Real shame he didn't have better material to work with and I can't help but wonder how his Bond legacy would look had he gotten the part when he was first offered it back in the mid-eighties. OTOH, I actually really enjoy The Living Daylights and consider Dalton's 'serious' Bond far better than Craig's.

Goldeneye gets some rating help for me thanks to it's brilliant N64 game and the fact that it's the one I first watched while not a young child. Would still be a great Bond regardless of any help thanks to Sean Bean, Famke Janssen, Joe Don Baker, Alan Cumming and a pretty tight script. Bean's Trevelyan especially might be my favorite villain/performance in the series.

Connery remains my favorite Bond with not a single official stinker to his name. Goldfinger is arguably the strongest in the series though I personally don't enjoy it as much as Goldeneye. I've also always been perplexed they chose to film so much of it in Strip Mall Country, USA. Diamonds Are Forever is probably my favorite 'stupid' Bond thanks to Jill St. John, epic hammy gay villains and what is essentially an Austin Powers script. The lack of Moore doesn't hurt either.

Nothing wrong with Dalton, great actor, just got a bit unlucky with what he had to work with. I'd watch him over Moore or most of the Brosnan films any day.

Of those? The Spy Who Loved Me, not the best bond though, thats From Russia With Love

1. From Russia With Love
2. Spy Who Loved Me
3. Living Daylights
4. Casino Royal
5. Goldfinger

For Your Eyes only is pretty underated, as is Live and Let Die (thought it was truly awful, then re watched it)

Worst 5 have to be

1. View to a Kill
2. Quantum of Solace
3. Moonraker
4. Die Another Day
5. World is Not Enough

Diamonds is pretty shit too as is Tomorrow Never Dies, Brosnan is actually fucking crap as a Bond, only Goldeneye is watchable (dated though)

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Yes most of the Moore films have aged horribly - surprisingly only 1 Connery film has aged poorly and that's Thunderball imo (those underwater fight scenes were probably impressive at the time but are snooze inducing now).

Nice list TigerTim - all your favs would be in my top 10 for sure.

I've seen all of them and my favourite is probably Casino Royale, Eva Green's Vesper Lynd was the best Bond girl by a long shot. I liked Goldeneye and Goldfinger too, and A View To Kill (just because of Grace Jones). Only actor I don't like as Bond is Timothy Dalton, I just don't think he fits the role at all.
