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)

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.

Default Re: What's your favourite James Bond film?

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.

probably Dr. No just because Sean Connery started the film franchise off with such a bang, he is the perfect 007

for entertainment and popcorn eating it might be 007 Goldeneye though; that movie had so many different things going on and it felt very sleek and there were no boring parts

On Her Majesty's Secret Service was a good Bond flick despite Lazenby. Living Daylights is one of favorites. Dalton is 3rd on my bond list, behind Connery and Craig. Dalton had the nice mix of seriousness and comedic timing.

Skyfall is among my top 5, but since this list was made in 2008 clearly it's not there.

Underwater scenes are pretty much always death in both action movies and videogames. I've actually never made it through Thunderball because of those scenes even if it might have the highest production values of the entire series.

I just got around to watching all of Moore's outings recently. I still think he's an awful actor and his 'romantic' scenes make me very uncomfortable. I really have no idea why any woman would willingly sleep with his Bond and that ends up making all of his flirting seem vaguely predatory. But while I have a lot of problems with his Bond, I actually do enjoy his campier films. Man With the Golden Gun, Moonraker and View to a Kill are all highly entertaining cheese though Golden Gun does drag at times (the locations, production values and Christopher Lee's iconic villain save it). I don't think Moore works in a more serious Bond film like FYEO though and Octopussy is probably the most forgettable in the series to that point.

Seeing them all right before Dalton's also made me see the problems in those films more clearly. They seemed much cheaper than Moore's, especially License to Kill, and both suffered from Dalon's lack of Moore's humor thanks to the scripts not being good enough to make a serious Bond compelling. License to Kill is an especially dire film; it feels more like a mediocre eighties exploitation action film than a proper Bond film.

Finally, I'd highly recommend watching the Lowry HD restorations if you haven't already. Moore's seventies films especially look stunning after being cleaned up.

Man With the Golden Gun and View to Kill are saved by a common denominator...the villain. Christopher Lee and Christopher Walken were both great Bond villains.
