I don't hate Octopussy, but it's definately got a lot going against it. If Moore ended with For Your Eyes Only, his tenure wouldn't have been as dreaded. Or maybe if the best of Octopussy and Never Say Never Again were somehow combined for one superfilm under Moore. A View to a Kill would have been awesome if Dalton came on one picture sooner.
I suppose You take 4 from Connery, 2 from Moore, Dalton's 2, then 1 each of Brosnan and Craig and you've got some great stuff.
Dr. No, From Russia with Love, Goldfinger, You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me, For Your Eyes Only, The Living Daylights, License to Kill, Goldeneye, and Casino Royale.
