13. Diamonds Are Forever
14. Quantum of Solace
15. Moonraker
16. The Man with the Golden Gun

20. Live and Let Die
21. Licence to Kill
22. A View to a Kill

As for Lazenby, he's good in the action scenes and surprisingly effective in some of the quiet tender moments with Diana Rigg, but awful with the witty banter part of the role. And anytime your lead actor has to be dubbed by someone else for a lengthy sequence it's not a good sign. The film has so many strong elements that it's a shame it didn't have Connery in the lead. It would likely be one of the top three if it had, and might have even taken the #1 spot.
