Okay perhaps your right. I saw Goldfinger again last night!

My new favourite Bond Film.

Shocking.....Positively Shocking!  James Bond after electrocuting a henchman! Pure Style!




stephenmccrossan -> RE: The Best Bond Film? (20/7/2006 4:47:50 PM)

Why has no one yet mentioned the absolutely wonderful Octopussy?

Exotic locations, crocodile shaped submarines, Moore in a clowns outfit at the circus...it has everything!

When Sean Connery and Roger Moore played Bond I never missed one of the films but after they hung up their Bond no one seemed to take up the mantle with the so many different faces, moods and experessions of Bond the same.  I  partiularly did not like Pierce Brosnan although my favourite Bond movie after the magnificant duo was 'Goldeneye' but I only went to see that because Sean Bean was in the film he is a good actor  and really plays the bad guy to the hilt.  In fact o much now you just know he is going to die.   But he handles this very well.




Ripper -> RE: The Best Bond Film? (28/7/2006 2:49:47 AM)

Connery multi faceted yes, but Moore? The raised eyebrow and lowered eyebrow were about all the facets of his bond. He was a mighty bond though. Why the particular disdain for Brosnan? It maybe that he is the Bond of my generation (although i was born into the Dalton era, however being only one at the time of his final outing did preclude me from experiancing them first hand somewhat), but I personally think he is the best since Connery and possibly even of them all (Dan Craig naturally is exempt for the mo). Moreover, Goldeneye aside, I thought it was his films which did him the disservice, he was a great Bond throughout.

You speak the truth Ripper[:)]  Yes, for an actor, Moore isn't up there with the greats!  However, I quite admire him because he has admitted this.  I seen him once saying: "Acting range: left eyebrow raised, right eyebrow raised", and other things such as on the AVTAK disc, the audio commentary he did, he said the film "The Man Who Haunted Himself" is the closest he has been to acting.  That, the fact that all but three of his Bond films I really enjoy and the charity work he does stops me from saying anything bad.  As you point out he was a great Bond though, despite his shortcomings in the acting department.  Though do you need to be Olivier to act in a Bond film? It's hardly Hamlet is it? [:D]  I quite agree with your comments about Pierce though, however, I never have really heard much disdain for him.  I do agree that the films, rather than himself was the reason he is maybe not regarded as highly as he should be.   Goldeneye and Tomorrow Never Dies (TND which I like more now than ever and GE too really, I knew I liked it before, but watching it this week, I really like it) are great films.  The World Is Not Enough didn't really live up to the first two, the rest of the film couldn't really match the opening sequence.  The less said about Die Another Day, well!  Again, good pre-credits sequence, but the film goes downhill from there.  Unforunately, this is Pierce's swansong too.  I must be one of the few people who likes all the actors to have played Bond, I think they all have brought something to the role. 




JACK M14 -> RE: The Best Bond Film? (28/7/2006 9:15:45 PM)

Well I do agree what you say about Connery but in the face of adversity I thought Moore was more cooly in charge of the situation  -  just an observation.  I think I saw about three films of Brosnan, before he became Bond,  which were types of action films.  The films were average as were the performances.   However, I did pop along and to see the new Bond  - Brosnan and low and behold his acting did not change he was the same as I had seen him before   -  therefore no character development.  When he discovered that the role of Bond was going up for grabs I do not think he behaved very well and that just about did it for me  - but Sean Bean was   good in Goldeneye just to labour the point  [:)][:D]

1.  Goldeneye

Superb stuff, great Bond and great villain in Sean Bean. Also features my favourite Bond girl, the stunning Famke Janssen.


'Why can't you just be a good boy and die?'

Finally, it took a page and a half for someone to bring up this:

LIVE AND LET DIE

BEST. BOND. FILM. EVER. EVER.


2.  Goldfinger

Classic Connery, THE Bond Car, Odd Job, Pussy Galore and or course.........


'Do you expect me to talk ?'
'No Mr.Bond, I expect you to die'



3.  Live and Let Die

Moore at his least camp, the lovely Jane Seymour, an agressive Yaphet Kotto and my favourite theme tune.

1. Casino Royale
2. Goldeneye
3. Goldfinger
4. Licence To Kill
5. Quantum of Solace

Never a fan of Moore. And in my opinion Daniel Craig is the best Bond. Liked Connery and Brosnan but Craig took it to a new (and better) level.

Hoping Skyfall will kick ass!

You actually have it in reverse there because the most underrated is actually the other Daltion Bond which is Living Daylights. Can't believe you think Lee is the best Villian when he is given little or anything to do. Can't look past GoldFinger for best Villian myself.

Dannybohy -> RE: The Best Bond Film? (20/2/2012 12:11:18 PM)

Living Daylights.  I realise I am in the minority but I honestly think Dalton is the best Bond so far :)

He is an awesome Bond and LD is indeed a superb Bond film.




King of Kafiristan -> RE: The Best Bond Film? (20/2/2012 3:43:00 PM)

MY TOP FIVE BOND FILMS:

1) FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE
2) CASINO ROYALE
3) QUANTUM OF SOLACE
4) GOLDFINGER
5) DR NO

The top two slots are nearly a tie, as far as I'm concerned.


BONDS, RANKED IN ORDER OF PREFERENCE:

CRAIG
CONNERY
BROSNAN
DALTON

LAZENBY
MOORE


Craig is my favorite, but he perhaps should get an asterix for not being Sean Connery, whose turn in the role was undeniably iconic. I am a big fan of Brosnan and Dalton both, with LAZENBY and MOORE being Bonds I for the most part actively dislike.

Spaldron -> RE: The Best Bond Film? (26/2/2012 4:31:26 AM)

Having just watched QoS for the first time in a while I'm finding a new appreciation for the film. Admittedly it has its problems, ironically the worst parts for me are the action scenes, particularly the boat chase and the plane dogfight, both of which I think are overdone and unnecessary. However they are overshadowed by the films strong points, the highlight being (and I've mentioned this before) the opera scene. A masterclass in composition and editing, brilliantly done and by far one of the best scenes in any Bond film. Also the scenes with Mathis are terrific and poignant, and I actually think Craig is better in this film than CR.

I'm going to have to disavow my list of favorite Bond films up there. Looking at it now it's incomprehensible to me that I'd have ordered them that way


Revised list:

1) FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE / CASINO ROYALE - Draw
2) GOLDFINGER
3) QUANTUM OF SOLACE
4) DR NO
5) GOLDENEYE


EDIT: Spaldron, glad you've come round on QOS. It is a very strong film, in my opinion. It has issues, but in the context of the series it's a great entry overall.




DazDaMan -> RE: The Best Bond Film? (26/2/2012 4:13:41 PM)

I've owned the complete box set for about 18 months, and have only just managed to get around to watching them all!

Anyway, thus far I'm up to The Spy Who Loved Me.

As far as favourites go: Casino Royale takes the top spot, followed by GoldenEye, The Spy Who Loved Me and Thunderball/Goldfinger.




chambanzi -> RE: The Best Bond Film? (27/2/2012 9:48:09 AM)

Favourite Bond (Ranked)

1. Roger Moore- Yes he's cheesy and smarmy but that is what I like about the films and Moore fully gets into the spirit of things
2. Timothy Dalton- The closest to what Bond is like in the books, Dalton was deadly, serious and lethal.
3. Sean Connery- The classic Bond
4. Pierce Brosnan- Another cheesy, smarmy Bond
5. Daniel Craig- Second closest to Bond in the books
6. George Lazenby- The worst Bond by a long shot, sure he had just one film but he outright sucked




darthbane -> RE: The Best Bond Film? (27/2/2012 10:16:16 AM)

I've recently had a change of heart as regards my favorite Bond movie. Up until now I have a great deal of love for Tomorrow Never Dies. After rewatching it last week, I think I have to reassess my position. You see when I viewed it again, it was for the first time since the Bond reboot with Casino Royale. For the first time I found the quips and one liners quite jarring. of course at that time, that was what Bond was all about, but looking on the older movies now makes me realise just how high Daniel Craig's Bond has sent the bar. I still hold a great fondness for TND but its now definitely become old school Bond.
My top 10

Casino Royale
Tomorrow Never Dies
Licence To Kikl
From Russia With Love
Quantum Of Solace
Goldeneye
Live And Let Die
Goldfinger
The Living Daylights
On Her Majesty's Secret Service
