I'm a Brosnan Man. Brozza seems to be a dirty word on fan forums, but...he was the Bond I first saw in the Cinema and got me hooked, so he'll forever be 'My' Bond.

To this day, i will watch anything with him in it, purely because of that. (Including Mamma Mia haha).

My favourite of his was Tomorrow Never Dies but as I've got older, I've begun to appreciate the more 'classic' tone of The World is Not Enough. GoldenEye a solid movie and the first half of Die Another Day was promising...not sure what trip was occuring in the 2nd half and quite rightly the CGI was awful. However....it has made me a fan of the original Vanquish, which I want to own one day.

I will forever like SkyFall because it was the last Bond movie I got to see in the Cinema with Dad before he suddenly passed away. I'll forever remember him sharing a laugh with me when Bond threatened to eject M out of the DB5.

(I could however happily forget the ridiculous step brother story from Skyfall and Spectre, very weak.)

I actually like them all, they are all a product of their time and it's continually evolving.

To be forced into saying ones I dislike, On Her Majesty's Secret Service would be my least favourite of the 'official' Bond movies, I didn't like them breaking the 4th wall and Lazenby walked away from the franchise but still to this day seems to not let anybody forget about him.

I'll always believe Clive Owen was the best Bond we never got and I would have personally loved for him to have taken over from Pierce.

Your favorite and not so favorite James Bond films.

100% Bond Fan!

Live and Let Die (they did the river jump scene in one go!) Man with the Golden Gun and View to a Kill being my favourites.

Daniel Craig is a great Bond but apart from Sky Fall the writing for the films for him have been dreadful

well obviously Sean Connery was the best bond, all others are just copies....

I like the fact that Flemming actually changed Bond to suit Connery and explain his Scottish roots, so if it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me...

Diamonds are forever, or Thunderball for me...

I find the more modern ones had the 'Borne effect' with the style of fighting/shaky cam etc... too overdone for me.

The worst ones have to be Roger Moore though, they made him too fashionable with his daft clothes - the Safari jacket, the green suede one.. so because of this they haven't aged well at all...

Roger Moore my favourite. Probably as he was main one through my childhood. Live and Let Die is one I can watch over and over. I love all bond films however moonraker was a little far fetched!! Daniel Craig's done well in the role too. Look forward to the next one.

ooooh... on the subject of Moonraker.....

I always thought Jaws felling one with Dolly (the wee blonde with pig tails) because after he crashed into the building and came out dusting himself off, he smiled with his big metal mouth, and then she smiled with braces on... instant love...

but.... apparently she never had braces!!

so I've no idea why they fell in love now.... anyone?!?!?

The thing I find strange is that despite the James Bond franchise being one of the most successful film franchises, they never seem to have top actors! Connery is so so at best. He has never really topped his Bond performances and his decision to do 'Never say never again' put him way down the pecking order. George Lazenby only did one, which wasn't bad. Roger Moore was the one I grew up with and loved but his films always had a whiff of cheese about them with the possible exception of 'Live and let die' which is one of my favourites. However, there was no excuse for Octopussy! I could never get into Timothy Dalton but thought Pierce Brosnan was pretty good. Daniel Craig has been the savior and arguably the best actor to play Bond. I remember when he was first announced and there was uproar and a huge campaign against him. I had watched many of his previous films and you could see the makings of Bond in him in Layer Cake. I thought he'd be suburb. Only 'Quantum of Solace' let him down a bit with a very clumsy story and sub-par supporting actors except Mathieu Amalric. So it's Casino Royale in the top spot and Licence to kill at the bottom, closely followed by Dr No.

For me it has to be Goldeneye simply due to age and the fact I was hooked on the N64 game. In truth now i'm older, watched them all a number of times I think Skyfall has to be right up there as the best bond film.

I do really enjoy the "older" ones, think this thread has made me want to watch them all again except ...

... Die another day... *groan*

Nice thread SB!!

So for me nostagia really kicks in. I immediately think of my favourites as Diamonds are forvever and The Spy Who Loved Me. The first because as a kid I just loved the bit where JB puts the car up on 2 wheels to go down a narrow gap between 2 buildings and the second because I just adored that Lotus Esprit and the bit driving out of the sea and chucking a fish out the window while a guy has a double-take of his whisky bottle is classic!
Although in reality by far my favourite is Skyfall - also DC is my fave JB - I like he is a little cracked and broken/vulnerable.

Worst is A view to a kill - although any Bond film that comes on the TV - I don't switch it off!
