    I apologize if this has already been done. If so, feel free to close it.

    With the release of Spectre, I'm curious about everyone's favourites?

    Mine are:

    Casino Royale
    Live And Let Die
    The Living Daylights
    For Your Eyes Only

    Goldfinger and The Spy Who Loved Me are on my "watch list."

    Moonraker. I'm not a Bond fan. But I like it because it has to do with space travel. :)

    And Michael Lonsdale is a great villain.

    The scenes with Jaws are memorable.

    I'm not interested in movies with Daniel Craig as Bond, though.

    "Dr. No" and "From Russia With Love" for sure. And occasionally "Goldfinger."

    The franchise turned into a joke after that.

    Casino Royale was really good. I also enjoy Goldfinger a lot.

    For spy thrills and good fun I like Casino Royale best, and Dr No after that. I also enjoy The Living Daylights, for it's harder edged Bond.

    Goldeneye was pretty decent, but gets a special place in the history of the franchise for inspiring one of the greatest video games of all time. Boy did the Brosnan movies get stupid fast after that though.

    I liked Pierce Brosnan as Bond, I just didn't like his movies. Well except for The World Is Not Enough but I think it's because that was my first Bond movie. Die Another Day was terrible!

    Definitely agree with top 4 :techman:. Love Thunderball (though don't think aged as well as FRWL) and think Licence To Kill very underrated. Also have a soft spot for cheesier ones like Spy Who Loved Me and Live & Let Die.

    1. You Only Live Twice
    2. Thunderball
    3. From Russia With Love
    4. Licence To Kill
    5. Casino Royale
    6. Spy Who Loved Me
    7. Live & Let Die
    8. Dr No
    9. Goldfinger
    10. The Living Daylights

    Brosnan is fun but can't say any are faves (prefer his Thomas Crown remake tbh).

    And the recent Everything Wrong With Quantum of Solace just reminded me what a cack-handed mess that was :lol:

    I would definitely place this #1 among Bond theme songs at the least. There's a good reason it's been recorded by everybody and their dog. :techman:

    :p

    No, but seriously... I've seen all the Brosnan and Craig's pre-SPECTRE ones, and I'm not sure I can say I really like any of them. Casino Royale is no doubt the best of that lot, but the second half isn't as strong as the first. (There's just no good reason not to arrest and interrogate Le Chiffre as soon as they meet up with him.) I saw Goldfinger once, but much too long ago to properly remember it. Watched Dr. No a few years back, and was mostly bored. Watched most of The Living Daylights around the same time and really enjoyed what I saw, but was interrupted and didn't get around to finishing it. As for Skyfall... the less said the better, IMO. At least Quantum of Solace had the decency to take itself out back and shoot itself before the two-hour mark. It says something when I find the first Austin Powers more emotionally involving than most actual Bond flicks.

    There was a time, back in middle school, when I thought Tomorrow Never Dies was just the coolest and most badass movie around. Naturally, I don't think that anymore... but it does have a pretty great opening sequence, right? As does GoldenEye and Casino Royale. Can I just cite those three opening sequences as my favorite short films featuring some bloke named James Bond?
