Anybody watching Goldfinger on ABC right now? You should be. Whats the best James Bond movie anyway? I like the one where Jaws goes over the waterfall after he breaks the steering wheel off the boat.

I dunno--I've seen them all, but it has been a while. I'm about to find out though!! I bought one of those 20 James Bond DVD collection from Ebay (Chinese movies). I did watch Dr. NO, and it is very good quality. I don't know my favorite movie at this point but I would definitely rank the Actors: 1. Sean Connery (by FAR the best) 2. Pierce Brosnan 3. Timothy Dalton 4. David Niven 5. George Lazenby 6. Roger Moore

"Hi! I'm Plenty." "Of course you are." Classic Bond line #74. Diamonds are Forever was a top notch film. Thunderball is high on the list too.

There is only one James Bond... Sean Connery. The rest are fakes... Ben Words to Live By: [size=4]"Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and f#%$ the prom queen." - Sean Connery, The Rock[/size=4]

1. Dr. No 2. Goldeneye Sean Connery is the best by far.
Link Posted: 6/17/2002 5:05:36 PM EDT
I like em' all. But in recent times I particularly like "Goldeneye". With two hot chicks to boot. All Bond movies are good. Even the Timothy Dalton one's were decent, IMO.

For some reason I really love "To Live & Let Die". I think Connery was the best serious Bond, but I felt Roger Moore had much more fun with the role.

Really? I liked The Living Daylights and after first seeing it I thought Dalton had a lot of potential as the next James Bond. But License To Kill was the absolute worst Bond movie [b]EVER[/b]. It totally sucked in every possible way. Not that such a horrible plot, script, and special effects were Dalton's fault, but that movie is simply painful to watch. And Wayne Newton in a Bond movie??? WTF were the producers thinking? It almost embarrasses me just to admit that I paid to see it in the theater. Myself, I think Goldeneye was the best Bond movie and Pierce Brosnan the best James Bond. Goldeneye is the one Bond movie I can watch over and over and never get tired of.

Agreed. Besides the 007 theme song, I like "From Russia with Love"; "Goldfinger"; and "You Only Live Twice". Roger Moore is Simon Templar, not James Bond... Moore is a little too slick and slimy vs. Connery's suave and dangerous demeanor.
Link Posted: 6/17/2002 7:29:08 PM EDT
My favorite was Casino Royale, even the theme song, you got to love Woody Allen as a villian As far as actors I will go against the general consensus and say i prefer Roger Moore.
Link Posted: 6/17/2002 7:47:10 PM EDT
Tough question. It's easier for me to say I don't like the Timothy Daulton movies, well the first was ok I guess. George Lazenby was a full of himself model boy who got fired because of it. His movie was ok though too.
Link Posted: 6/17/2002 8:47:47 PM EDT
The Living Daylights is my favorite. Everyone hates it, but I liked it because I thought it was the most realistic/plausible Bond movie. I hate all the new ones with Piere Brosnan. They're tired, formulaic, and they don't even take themselves seriously.
Link Posted: 6/17/2002 8:58:24 PM EDT
Goldeneye 4 me.
Link Posted: 6/17/2002 11:10:48 PM EDT
octapussy!! maybe I just like the name I think I am the only one that thinks that Roger Moore was the best bond...
Link Posted: 6/17/2002 11:19:08 PM EDT
Connery- Thunderball then Goldfinger Moore- Spy Who Loved Me, and Moonraker New ones are OK, just not the same. Too PC I think. I love in Goldfinger when Connery turns to the girl and says "Time to go, man talk." [:)]

They made up for it with two hot chicks. Talisa Soto[:P] and that short haired honey, Carey Lowell[:P]. But ya, Goldeneye is one of the best! I got's da DVD.

Am I the only one upset that the first naked breasts shown in a Bond film were Grace Jones' sorry little boy dugs? All that talent, and they choose Jones...

My choices #1 From Russia with Love! A serious movie. Lots of plot, lots of location, believable gadgetry. This was Sean's favorite movie. #2 Diamonds are forever! Gotta love Jill St. John in her panties. Lana wood was great too. A good plot, "A drugged Howard Hughes and his empire taken over for no good" (Hey could be what really happened). Loved the Red Mach 1 and the chase scene through Vegas. Loved Bambi and Thumper, two lesz who beat bond up. My 2 cents. M4-AK

in goldfinger on HD last night, i was shocked that (standards of that time) the pilot said, "My name is Pussy Galore." connery's response of something to the effect of "yes, you are." she was a hottie though.

"From Russia With Love" was my favorite Connery Bond film. The train fight was EASILY the most realistic fight scene in a Bond movie until Goldeneye. It would have been nice if someone bothered to teach Connery how to shoot so he didn't look so silly shooting from the hip at extended ranges. Roger Moore's only good bond movie was "Live and Let Die" he was new to the role, so he was playing it closer to the Connery mode than he did afterward. "On Her Majesties' Secret Service" was one of the better Bond stories. Lazenby wasn't bad, and could have grown into the role, but... Timothy Dalton made a good Bond in my opinion, but the story writing of both Living Daylights and License to Kill was substandard. The writers were writing Roger Moore stories and needed something grittier. Much of the action was fairly gritty, but Joe Don Baker's villain was pretty pathetic really. They needed someone tougher and more diabolical, not merely callous and greedy. Goldeneye was an extraordinary resurrection of the franchise. Brosnan surprised me with how good a Bond he was. The fight scenes were gritty and brutal and while the villains had dropped back to a more modest scale, they were also more believable. Robbie Coltrane's soviet mobster was a great character, I hope they "saved" him off screen in "The World is Not Enough." "Tomorrow Never Dies" was a bit weaker than "Goldeneye" though Michelle Yeoh is GREAT. "The World is Not Enough" was solid and more appealing to me than "Tomorrow..." but not up to the caliber of "Goldeneye." Too bad Brosnan is retiring from the franchise, but at least he's smart enough to get out before his age starts to show on the character..Moore was getting ridiculous at the end of his tenure. The man needed to be forced into a training program. So who should succeed Brosnan?
Link Posted: 6/18/2002 9:58:37 AM EDT
Maybe it's because it was the first Bond movie I ever saw, but "Thunderball" is the best to me, followed closely by "You Only Live Twice". I'm a fan of all the older ones.
Link Posted: 6/18/2002 10:02:32 AM EDT
I'm not sure why Timothy Dalton gets a bad rap. Other than Sean Connery (the best, of course), Dalton was the most convincing. His last Bond move, "License to Kill" was a bit long and slow, but it was the only one to show a really (long-awaited) malevolent side to 007. Violence committed for revenge is among the most fascinating plots in all literature and film. Best Bond Film: Thunderball (and I'm still pissed at Connery for remaking it with "Never Say Never Again".)

From Russia with Love. Better than everything else.

Goldeneye "She always did love a good squeeze" -bond That sucks the Brosnan is leaving the franchise. He is the second best bond after Connery.

Back when I was a teenager a friend of mine brought over a set of James Bond paperbacks. He said these are great books you should read them. It took me about four months to read all of them and about the time I finished the first JB movie came out. IMHO the best book was "In Her Majesty's Secret Service". My memory said it was head and shoulders above the other books. It made James out to be a real person. However, of all the movies it was by far the worse.

1. From Russia with Love 2. Goldfinger BTW the dialogue was: Pussy - "My name is Pussy Galore." Bond - "I must be dreaming." Absolutely love that. Almost as good as: "No Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!"

Ditto on Goldfinger. Great movie. On the modern end, Goldeneye was excellent.

I kinda liked "Never Say Never Again". But number one for me is "You only Live Twice". Bond becomes a ninja.... Scott
