And, as I said before, here's the real low point IMO, Die Another Day...

Another Way to Die was okay, but got a bit messy as it went along, and was too long for me.

Die Another Die on the other hand was total pants, and surely has to be the worse Bond theme ever, we agree on that one[:D]




aidricalchemy -> RE: The Best Bond Film? (26/5/2014 4:52:53 PM)

I think Tomorrow Never Dies is the best film

The themes both fail because of the same problem - they didn't write them alongside the composer for the rest of the score. Pop star egos versus people that know what they are doing (David Arnold).

Never thought of that, and you may have a point. In the Madonna case it might be than she was the right singer in the wrong decade. If she had done one in the 80's she would have been perfect. With the White/keys duet I just feel than trying to mess their two styles never really worked, and so you ended up with an awkward hybrid.

My favorite Bond film has to be 'The Spy Who Loved Me' (1977) followed closely by 'Goldfinger' (1964).
Somehow the older Bond films (like the ones mentioned above) had much more substance (my personal opinion) than the ones of today.
'The Spy Who Loved Me' was the tenth film in the James bond series, and the best by far screening Roger Moore as the fictional secret agent. The underwater scenes which were actually filmed on location at the Bahamas were a treat for the eyes, along with the massive sets which depicted the interior of a supertanker.
'Goldfinger' (the third film in the series) featured Sean Connery in the main role. The highlight of this movie was the action sequence in the end, where the airplane is out of control and our superhero rescues Galore, with them parachuting safely from the aircraft before it crashes into the ocean.. it was just wow!

Young would be my pick. He was just right for the era he was directing in also, because he knew how to pace a thriller, and give something like Bond a little more depth.

Campbell did Goldeneye and Casino Royale right?

John Glen is an interesting case, he did direct some of the better Bond films IMO, but not seen as one of the better directors.




rich -> RE: The Best Bond Film? (1/6/2014 1:18:17 PM)

I think we talked about this before but the directors chosen rarely leave their personal stamp on the movies they did, particularly the older ones that came back more than once. John Glen for example did a few but what makes them stand out as his besides the weird obsession with small animals jumping out unexpectedly..? The writers and the second unit generally bring the series the parts people remember, and the producers always had more say in the direction things went in terms of style or tone.

Some of you may like to register with these guys (Absolutely James Bond):

They discuss all sorts of topics relating to Bond, and I think you'll find their conversations refreshing.

I'd say give it a whirl.

Best. Introduction. Ever.

Best Bond movie is Casino Royale (2006) and the worst is Dr. No. Although, the two best things it are Sean Connery and Eunice "Sylvia Trench" Gayson.

Not in a million years. In fact it is one of the best, despite its low budget production values. Simplicity is key here.

The worst is Die Another Day, a travesty not only to the Bond franchise but film making in general. A CGI ejaculation gone wrong, zer0 substance and some of the worst casting in any Bond film. That is before you get to the script, horrific. I actually felt sorry for Brosnan some of the shit he had to contend with in his Bond years.
