Dr. No, From Russia With Love,
are considered more spy noire than the rest of the Bond flicks, as they were intended to be more straight-up adaptations of the novels. When Thunderball
came along, then Bond transformed into a cinematic action hero.
I definitely think that any Bond movie fest must
include one of these, with that knowledge. It's really a whole other style of movie.
is the first real solid combination of the action hero/spy noire genre that we see in the series. The Living Daylights
is another example of this, and while it is very true to the short story of its name, it also gives a cinematic picture of the late Cold War in the Soviet Satellite countries.
The Pierce Brosnan movies, much like all of the post Man with the Golden Gun
Moore flicks, are really big budget, implausible, cheap sci-fi-esque crap.
If I were you, I'd be showing Dr. No, On Her Majesty's Secret Serivice, Live and Let Die, The Living Daylights,
and Casino Royale.
