The Man with the Golden Gun is crap. It's so boring! Not even Christopher Lee can save this one.

Moonraker isn't great but it's not the worst film in the series. I'd gladly take it over You Only Live Twice, The Man with the Golden Gun, License to Kill, or Quantum of Solace.

The Living Daylights is probably my all-time favorite Bond picture. Everything works here, from the tone to Timothy Dalton's performance to Maryam d'Abo as the Bond girl to Joe Don Baker as the bad guy.

"The World Is Not Enough."
"Foolish sentiment."
"Family motto."
This is one of my all-time favorites and probably the most underrated of all the films. On an action/plot level, I'd put it about on par with Tomorrow Never Dies. What puts this one over the top for me is Sophe Marceau, the sexiest Bond girl ever! Not even Denise Richards non-acting can ruin this one.
It's nice to see another Bond fan almost agree with me. The Living Daylights is my most favorite Bond movie too and The World is Not Enough is the best of the Brosnan films. And while I love The Spy Who Loved Me, My personal favorite of the Roger Moore films is Moonraker. But, how can you NOT like The Man With the Golden Gun? Okay, it's hardly a classic, but it was an enjoyable movie, and it successfully washed away the bad taste that Live and Let Die left in my mouth. That's what I liked about the Roger Moore movies, He got the utter crap out of the way first, then, made five excellent movies, then his last, which was merely good.

And I also agree that Quantum of Solace was garbage. I haven't really warmed up to Daniel Craig, even though I did like Casino Royale. I hope that if they start up the series again, they recast Bond.
