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.
