Casino Royale isn't a bad movie.
It's a great movie.

Actually it's a pretty good spy movie. It's just not a cinematic James Bond movie.
It was the first Bond movie to follow a Fleming novel properly in decades and successfully rebuilt Bond for the big screen from the ground up, after Brosnan Bond got rapidly stale.

The less said about Quantum of Solace the better. It's easily one of the 5 worst films in the whole franchise.
More like in the top of the bottom 10 Bond movies - around the middle of the pack really. It was certainly better than the last couple of Brosnan movies.

And it does it while not being very Bond-esque either.
You think the exotic locations, chase scenes, and a Bond girl killed in a bizarre way was un-Bondian?

Skyfall is the first DC Bond I'll be proud to own and watch over and over.
I gave it a B, it's very watchable and solid, but felt like back to square one after Judi Dench got replaced.
