The FMR Ranking of Bond Films. All 23 From Worst to First.

Ok, Bond fans. This is it, the last Bond related post for the foreseeable future. :( Non Bond fans, bear with me one last time, with the exception of Wednesday’s (title pending), we’re going to move on back to our regularly scheduled movie talk starting tomorrow. I promise. :D

But there’s one more ranking that needs to be done, and it’s a big one. The films themselves. The Bond series has had numerous ups and downs over the five decades that its been around, giving us some great movies, and some awful ones. And this weekend brought us one that wants to shoulder its way to the top, people are already talking about it being the “Best Bond Ever”.

Click through to read my ranking of all 23!

_________________________________________________________________

23) “Diamonds are Forever”

Connery returned after a one movie retirement in order to give us the worst movie in his “official” Bond filmography. Blofeld is back, except he’s not the Blofeld of either of the past two films, this time he breaks out the drag! Jill St John prances around half-dressed! The villains are odd, and play off of homophobia. Bond even drives a moon buggy… I’m not kidding. A poor plot, sad action scenes and silly characters make “Diamonds Are Forever” a regrettable Bond outing.

_________________________________________________________________

22) “A View to a Kill”

Moore plays Bond at almost 60, he needed stunt doubles to run up stairs and throw a punch. No joke. With him is Tanya Roberts, the biggest airhead in Bond Girl history. “JAMES!” Thankfully they have Christopher Walken, who seems to recognize this movie is a comedy, and plays the movie with a wink the entire time. The ridiculous plot is broken up by the weakest action scenes in franchise history. Very little to recommend aside from the theme song. Unless of course, you like your movies a bit cheesy!
_________________________________________________________________

21) “Die Another Day”

Brosnan’s last for a reason. Abandoning all basis in reality, “Die Another Day” is one of the most cartoonish Bond films of all time. Any complaints about the dark realism of Craig’s Bond can be directed here, with its gene replacement therapies, sleep masks, solar rays, and power suits. Halle Berry shows up to deliver lines with a mortar trowel, and we’re forced to endure far more Madonna than the Geneva convention allows! It’s the most maligned Bond of the modern era, and deservedly so.

_________________________________________________________________

20) “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”

George Lazenby, the poor man’s Connery, takes his one and only turn as Bond here. Lacking the charisma of his predecessor, Lazenby is also shackled with a Bond script that’s one quarter romance. Bond gets married, cause that’s what Bond fans wanna see, right? Featuring some seriously dull stretches where Bond goes undercover as a college professor, “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” is one of the most boring Bonds there is. A couple of interesting action scenes set it above the ones it outranks.
_________________________________________________________________

19) “The Man with the Golden Gun”

Moore faces off against Christopher Lee, who turns in an interesting villain, in spite of being given a creepy third nipple that gets talked about far too often. The plot is a bit of a mess, with Scaramanga - a world-class assassin - somehow involved in solar energy, and the Bond girl is one of the series weakest. They also feature the return of the outright racist Sheriff JW Pepper! Still, this movie has that Bond feel, with a cool henchman in Nick Nack, a villain with an exotic island lair and some undercover work by Bond.

_________________________________________________________________

18) “For Your Eyes Only”

This movie commits the cardinal sin for Bond films. It’s boring. Created as a follow-up intended to “ground” Bond again after Moonraker, “For Your Eyes Only” is slow, with Bond having a car chase in a Citroën 2CV (think VW bug) and a rock climbing grand finale. The two Bond girls are disappointing in different ways, and the plot – with Bond trying to retrieve a device key to Britain’s submarine fleet – is as unspectacular as it comes. I acknowledge I’m harsher on it than pop culture is, but this film is one of my least favorite Bonds.

_________________________________________________________________

17) “The World is Not Enough”

Denise Richards turns this movie into the brunt of jokes for many, but Sophie Marceau is one of the series’ best Bond Girls. It has plenty of issues, including multiple villains, the kidnapping of M, and a confusing finale in a submarine reactor, but the combination of Brosnan as Bond and a couple of standout action sequences make “The World is Not Enough” a watchable Bond offering. It also features a sweet farewell from series stalwart Desmond Llewelyn. Though it wasn’t planned, his final appearance was a perfect way to say goodbye.

_________________________________________________________________

16) “Moonraker”

A laughable film in many ways, except you half get the feeling that they weren’t taking things seriously here. How else to explain Roger Moore wrestling a rubber snake, or the Bond-ola (a tricked out Venice gondola)? A low point in the series for some, but certainly one of the best of the “campy” Bonds. The ultra droll villain (Hugo Drax) has an orbiting space lair, a french palace AND an underground jungle lair. Plus it features the return of Jaws, even if they do, regrettably, turn him good. Approached in the right way, “Moonraker” is a lot of fun.

_________________________________________________________________

15) “Tomorrow Never Dies”

If this chapter in the Bond saga had the benefit of a stronger villain, it would have been much better. Though played with sufficient scenery chewing glee by Jonathan Pryce, there’s no getting around the fact that Elliott Carver is trying to… obtain broadcast rights in China. By starting a war. With fake headlines. *sigh* Still, Michelle Yeoh ups the action quotient with her kung fu prowess, there’s the fun scene with the remote-controlled BMW, and Brosnan, Dench and Llewlyn representing MI6.

_________________________________________________________________

14) “Live and Let Die”

Roger Moore enters the series, to rock and roll fanfare provided by Paul McCartney. Aside from one of the series’ greatest theme songs, “Live and Let Die” features multiple henchmen, voodoo, and the lovely Solitaire, played by Jane Seymour. Bond hops over crocodiles and races speedboats in locales ranging from New Orleans to New York City. Kananga may have been a glorified drug kingpin, but at least he had the Bond Villain good sense to have a lair with a shark tank! Now if we could just go back and digitally erase Sheriff Pepper…

_________________________________________________________________

13) “Quantum of Solace”

Disappointing as a follow-up to the magnificent “Casino Royale”, “Quantum of Solace” still features the most ass-kicking Bond in an action loaded spectacular. Angry and out for revenge after the death of the woman he loves, Bond embarks on a mission of vengeance. As such, he’s much more cold-hearted than we’ve ever seen before. Though it takes an enormous amount of criticism for featuring the same style of action the “Bourne” series is known for, “Quantum of Solace” remains a solid, modern Bond offering.

_________________________________________________________________

12) “Octopussy”

One of Moore’s last, and subject to many of the same criticisms about him being too old, there being too much campy humor, etc… except somehow the recipe works here. Moore and Maude Adams (Octopussy) play off of each other well, and Louis Jourdan offers us a fun villain in the form of Kamal Khan. The plot, which mixes Faberge Eggs, a circus and Nuclear Weapons, certainly needs to be forgiven, but the movie is heavily influenced by Raiders of the Lost Ark, and has a load of fun, “non-stop” action sequences.

_________________________________________________________________

11) “The Living Daylights”

Timothy Dalton’s first turn as 007 is one of those movies in the series where they once again attempt to make things more realistic (this movie was a rebound from “A View to a Kill”). As such, we get a grounded, darker Bond on a mission against a crooked Generals and an arms dealer, with a little drug smuggling thrown in to boot. Dalton’s Bond was refreshing, coming off of the Moore era, and there are some high quality chases and stunts along the way. For the first time in many years, Bond felt modern, serious, and credible as an espionage agent.

_________________________________________________________________

10) “You Only Live Twice”

Are there regrettable elements to “You Only Live Twice”? Sure. Sean Connery is the world’s least believable Japanese man, why not just write that out of the script? LOL. But this movie also has TONS of the “Bond Formula” magic, including the first (and best) appearance of Blofeld, and an enormous action finale where a squadron of “ninjas” assaults his volcanic lair by rappelling in with machine guns blazing. That’s pure Bond gold right there.

_________________________________________________________________

9) “From Russia with Love”

Undeniably a classic Bond film, but a little light on the “Colorful” elements, and more than a little slow at times. Still, this is Connery in his Bond prime, on what is arguably his most realistic spy mission of all his movies. Robert Shaw adds his talent to the Bond franchise with Red Grant, an assassin who poses as a British agent in an attempt to kill Bond. Add in the bitter SPECTRE villain Rosa Klebb and you have Bond at his Cold War best!

_________________________________________________________________

8) “Licence to Kill”

Dalton’s second outing is his best, with Bond on a mission to avenge the murder of Leiter’s wife, and the near fatal attack on Leiter himself. To do so, he’ll have to infiltrate the operation of drug lord Franz Sanchez (Robert Davi) and the entire country that Sanchez has under his thumb. Two great Bond girls, Q in the field, and Dalton’s dark take on Bond make this one a special entry into the franchise. But it also features the most explosive action sequence in series history. Literally!

_________________________________________________________________

7) “The Spy Who Loved Me”

The high point of the Roger Moore era, all of the elements really came together well in this one. It has Carly Simon capping a phenomenal opening sequence, the infamous underwater Lotus, Barbara Bach as Bond’s opposite number, and of course, the first appearance of everyone’s favorite metal mouthed assassin, Jaws. Bond skis, submerges, fights an unstoppable henchman, and leads an armored assault. When you’re talking about the films of the Roger Moore era, Nobody Does it Better.

_________________________________________________________________

6) “Thunderball”

Classic, Connery, Cold War Bond meets the colorful, outlandish future of the series. His eye patch wearing villain sports an eye patch and a owns a yacht that has a detachable speed boat. Fifty or so frogmen parachute into the ocean to have a speargun fight with bad guys in possession of stolen nuclear warheads. This is Bond at his best. Real enough not to cause head shaking, but still with enough flair to bust out the jetpack, baby. You’ve gotta love Thunderball!

_________________________________________________________________

5) “Goldeneye”

Brosnan’s first, and undeniably his best. The world had been clamoring for him as Bond, and they were finally given what they wanted. Opening with a dramatic bungee jump, showcasing one of the series best femme fatales (Famke Janssen), and offering a great villain in Sean Bean’s 006, “Goldeneye” kicked Brosnan’s Bond era off with a bang. It also introduced us to Judi Dench’s powerhouse take on the character of M. It was all down hill from here with the Brosnan era, but this is a fantastic Bond film.

_________________________________________________________________

4) “Dr. No”

The film that started it all. Everything about it screams “Classic”, every moment is a Bond series “First”. It features a couple of Bond moments that have become iconic (The first “Bond, James Bond”, Ursula Andress emerging from the ocean) and several more that are worthy, such as Bond waking up to battle a tarantula! Dr. No sets the tone for all Bond villains to follow, between his droll delivery, mechanical hands and villain lair. It also gave us the unforgettable Bond Theme that has become world renown!

_________________________________________________________________

3) “Skyfall”

With the benefit of modern movie making, Skyfall is the series’ best action film. Yet it also features some of the best character development, themes, and cinematography. It’s that rare breed of action film that can make you think while it keeps you on the edge of your seat. Javier Bardem’s Raoul Silva rockets to the top of the Greatest Bond Villains list, and several classic characters are reintroduced to the series. It’s a movie that demands to be reckoned with, and precious few in the series outrank it.

_________________________________________________________________

2) “Goldfinger”

THE ultimate “Classic” Bond film, it’s become synonymous with James Bond, and nearly every other five minutes, you get something iconic. From the first appearance of the Aston Martin DB5, to the golden girl on the bed, to the infamous laser beam, “Goldfinger” sports an abundance of riches in terms of classic movie moments, scenes and characters. Pussy Galore. Odd Job. Goldfinger himself. This is the movie that catapulted Bond into the upper stratosphere of popularity, and remains one of the very best to this day.

_________________________________________________________________

1) “Casino Royale”

The best Bond. Modern film making meets classic sensibilities. Craig’s least “dark” turn as Bond. The best Bond girl ever in Eva Green. A fantastic villain, with Mads Mikklesen’s Le Chiffre, and Judi Dench asserting her authority with a new Bond. It’s a spectacular action film, and a great “Bond Movie”. Bond wins, gets tortured, gets the girl and loses the girl, all in the same film. Daniel Craig’s interpretation of the character took movie audiences by storm, and has reset the world’s vision of Bond from here on out.

_________________________________________________________________

Well, there you have it folks. My ranking of the Bond films from worst to best. All 23. 50 years worth.

Do you disagree with any? With 23 of them, I’m sure we’ll have plenty of room for discussion and debate about the two highs and too lows! Let me hear it it!

A big thank you to everyone for indulging me as I’ve turned this Blog into Bond central this month. The 50th anniversary is only going to come along once, and from here on out I have all of the rankings on the record, along with a couple of the must see movies in the franchise inducted into my “Movies That Everyone Should See” series. I appreciate everyone’s patience, and thank to everyone who’s joined in the fun with your comments and “likes”. We’ll get right back to the rest of the world of film, starting tomorrow!

      • It’s not a easy thing to do. I know, for me, certain films have moved up (OHMSS, The Living Daylights, Licence to Kill) and down (Die Another Day, TMWTGG), with stuff always floating in-between. Well done, Dan.

  1. I Still Say “Goldfinger” Is The Most Overrated Bond Of Them All, And That “Licence To Kill” Is The Most Underrated. You Make Some Good Arguments. It’s Got Me To Pop On Ye Ole Thinking-Cap, Fo SHO.
    I May Have To Comment Again In The Near’ish Future ;) hehehe
    -B.

    • It’s a lot of “work”! I mean, it’s a huge franchise Adrian! Seriously, not an easy task to plow through all of these.

      What I always lover hearing though is how well Craig is connecting with new audiences. Its great. I love seeing him grow the brand. :D

  2. Fogs has never ever ever been this excited about a film before. Period.

    Thus, I am also excited, though slightly less. Being a woman gets in the way, but your consistent and magnificent coverage of Skyfall and all things Bond begins to thaw out my feminist heart.

    What the heck was that? I went all formal on you, sorry! lol :D

    • Heh. No sorries. Its going to be interesting to hear your take on Skyfall. I hope it doesnt disappoint. Definitely a dark movie, definitely action packed, totally gives long time fans a lot of treats.

      When you finally DO get to see it, I’m looking forward to hearing your feminist perspective (although, of course, being Bond, I’m not counting on him to fare all that well in that regard :D )

  3. I haven’t seen Skyfall yet, but I’m guessing I’ll agree with your placement. I don’t know what I’d put as my number 1, though. The Living Daylights and License to Kill are two of my favorites, but I also love Dr. No and Goldeneye. I’ve always wondered how Goldeneye would have been if Dalton had been Bond. Probably a lot different. Great list!

    • Agreed Austin, that IS a great what if. But here’s another one for you, Brosnan was actually very close to being Bond for the Dalton films! So… sometimes I also wonder what the Dalton movies would have been like with Brosnan!

      You’ll love Skyfall. I’ve been hitting a ton of other reviews, and I’ve yet to find anything that calls it – at worst – really good. LOL

      • Yeah, if it wasn’t for Remington Steele, there would never have been a Dalton Bond film. If Brosnan had done those films, his track record would be a whole lot better. Goldeneye might be one of my favorites, but his other ones were pretty terrible.

        I don’t think I’ve seen anyone give it lower than an 8 out of 10, which is surprising.

      • Its true. A little sad, but true. I love Brosnan AS Bond, but Brosnan’s Bonds didn’t turn out all that well, as evidenced by the fact that Goldeneye is the only movie of his I rank in the top half of the rankings :(

  4. Fogs, with the exception of your strange placement for OHMSS, I can’t argue too much with your list. I love that you correctly identify the worst Bond movie of all time in Diamonds are Forever and don’t give Die Another Day a pass like some writers. It’s just awful and the worst Brosnan film. It’s also nice that you don’t completely dismiss Quantum of Solace. I don’t think it’s great, but it suffers mostly because its predecessor is Casino Royale. I’m seeing Skyfall tonight, so I’ll see if it matches your high ranking for me. Nice work.

    • I’m putting my money SOLIDLY on the “Dan’s gonna love it” square. Let the wheel spin!

      OHMSS is “beloved” solely within Bond fan circles, if then. Pop Culture is in the right on this one. It has deemed the movie a joke, and I concur, sir!

      Meanwhile, on Die Another Day, I couldnt dream of giving it a pass. That flick is ridiculous. LOL Painfull to watch!

  5. Great post, Fogs. I may not have the film viewing to fully understand all the rankings, but I enjoyed reading your reasons nevertheless. I’ll try and remedy my “ignorance” next year… I’m thinking of trying to do a chronological viewing of the whole series, including the non-canon ones, and including re-watching what little James Bond I’ve seen so as to get it in the “historical context”, as it were.

    • You know? I think this series is tailor made for you. a) I know you appreciate classic films b) I know you appreciate cheese. Boom. You’re able to overcome the two major obstacles to the Bond catalogue for the modern viewer. You’ll love the “Classic” feel of the early Connerys, and You’ll be able to laugh along with the Moores.

      I look forward to reading along as you go, you know I’ll be down to read and talk about Bond, for sure! :D

      • Plus, I know that these are mostly good action films, which is also something I appreciate. I think it’ll work out fine. Might be interesting trying to track down them all in order, mind you. But we’ll see how that goes.

  6. I gave Casino Royale 35 minutes and could not get into it. In fact, I downright hated it.

    I’ve seen lists of Bond movies that list On her Majesty’s Secret service as number one and articles stating that George Lazenby was advised to ask for more money so they dumped him, or he might have been considered the greatest Bond of all. I just do NOT see it.

    I think Judy Dench may be the greatest M of all time. But I can see why she might not want to do it anymore. M that is, she said she doesn’t plan to retire despite her eyes. She has said that her eyesight started going out on her a while back and she has friends read her the script and she memorizes it that way. So I’m not sure how much sight she has left. She is an amazing actress and one can’t tell she is having trouble seeing at all.

    I also suspect Fiennes is going to be a very good M as well.

    While I was not fond of Craig as Bond, I just saw Skyfall the other day. I was very pleased with it. There were subtle and not so subtle tributes to many of the past movies. There was something slightly corny about the villain in the way that some of the 1970′s villains were a bit corny. Maybe it was the funny stiff upper lip and the oh so fake looking hair.

    I think it may be my favorite Bond film.

    While I like Goldfinger, I may have to agree with the person that said it is a bit over rated and that Live and Let Die is a bit under rated.

    Moonraker is not the best, but it is a fun one to watch. I still find it very funny that children connected so much to Jaws and that was why he was turned into a good guy at the end. I also don’t understand why children related so well to the Dalek’s during the 60′s. I find children connecting to the villains a bit odd. It’s like someone telling me they loved the flying monkeys in the wizard of oz. Most people I know were terrified of them.

    • LOL @ the Lazenby stuff. People saying he might have been the best Bond must have been drinking. Maybe if he had five years of acting lessons along the way, and a couple of boxing lessons. :D

      Dench absolutely has been the best M, (all due respect to Bernard Lee) and Fiennes will make a great contribution to the series as well, I’m sure.

      I like how you put that there were subtle and some not so subtle tributes to the prior movies in Skyfall. LOL. Very much so! A couple of them hit you over the head, didnt they? :D Still fun though. I’m not going to call Skyfall my best personally… (I cant understand not liking Casino Royale, that movie is incredible) but I’m not going to put up an argument with people who want to crown it number one. Its a valid choice. Its that good.

      Meanwhile, though, calling Goldfinger “overrated” here is sacrilege. In fairness, you are now a blasphemous heathen as well. :D

  7. Just wanted to say that Bond is what brought me to this site. (I was searching for “James Bond” posts on WordPress, and I came across one of your earlier pieces.) So the whole month of Bond has been a blast.

    Ranking the Bond movies is absolutely daunting, since my own favorite always seems to shift back and forth depending on my mood. I’ve probably seen “The Spy Who Loved Me” the most, though. It’s got a little bit of everything: Cold War intrigue, a colorful henchman, larger-than-life stakes, solid action sequences, a lovely and capable Bond girl, and Bond getting into both the tux and the naval outfit.

    On the other end of the scale: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is still the only (official) Bond movie I’ve never had the patience to sit all the way through. I mean, when I want to watch a Bond movie, I want to watch a Bond movie. And it’s so … un-Bondlike.

    • San-TOH. Reassuring me about the Bond. I gotta tell you buddy, seriously, I wouldnt have blamed anyone if this was one post too many. LOL.

      Thank you AGAIN for the OHMSS support. That is EXACTLY what I’m saying. Good grief! The Bond is lame, it’s half a romance movie, and even when they get to the Bond being Bond stuff, he’s posing undercover talking about family crests and stuff. Gawd.

      This list ISNT strictly personal favorites… I try to be a little objective, and strict favorites might b different to a degree. One of the ways would be that that one plunges straight to the bottom! LOL

      Thanks again man!!

  8. Even as a non Bond fan, I have to agree with your list here Fogs. I’d keep #1 and #2 exactly as they are but I’d swap round #3 and #4. Other than that, it’s a fine list sir and must have been a bit of a nightmare to assemble…

  9. I never understand the fuss about Thunderballs, I find it really dull. The whole underwater battle, while impressively filmed, is a big stodgy mess and the film drags as if you’re swimming in syrup! I also can’t believe that you’ve rated OHMSS so low, and Octopussy so high! I do agree about Casino Royale though; superb film.

    I’ve just finished Blogalongabond: 22 months of Bondish blogging; and apart from the few I’ve mentioned, my rating is broadly similar to yours.

    http://filmsrruss.blogspot.co.uk/p/blogalongabond.html

    • OHMSS is a mess. Speaking of boring!

      Octopussy is one I have to waive the white flag on. I guess, empirically, if you’re judging films, that one’s still a mess. But its a fun mess. Somehow, it amuses me. The “Moore recipe” works there. Its campy fun, for me. Moonraker, too, but that ones harder to forgive – you know, the whole Bond in Space thing LOL.

      Even though I love it, I couldnt argue that the underwater fight in Thunderball DOESNT go on too long. It definitely does, especially for the modern viewer. I’m sure in the early sixties when that was state of the art filming and SCUBA probably felt exciting and new to people, that that scene played differently and felt cutting edge. Today though, it hasnt aged well. It does slow the film down considerably…

      Thunderball is still freaking awesome though, cmon!

      I’ll try to stop by when I get a chance Russ, I wish I had known, I could have linked those up for the Bond Blog-a-thon I just had here!! :D

  10. Can’t fault your list Fogs, Casino Royale is a worthy number one. I’d probably have Goldeneye in my personal top three but I’m glad to see top tens for Thunderball and You Only Live Twice. I’m not sure Dr No stands up all too well anymore but it’s pretty iconic so can see why it is where it is.

    • Obviously Dr No IS Iconic still, yeah, but I’m personally of the mindset that it holds up really well, although I’ve had to defned it against said charge pretty often this last month, so perhaps youre the one who’s right on that one Chris :(

  11. Skyfall at number 3? Christ, Fogs, knee-jerk reaction much?

    Yeah, it was good, definitely a solid outing, but there’s no way it’s better than FRWL, TSWLM, DN, or Goldeneye. Ugh.

    I really did enjoy this movie, but I think with time it will creep down peoples’ lists. Although, the best thing about being a Bond fan is that no two lists are ever alike!!!

    • I’m certainly not the only one calling it one of the best ever. Plenty of people are.

      Annnnnnd… I think it is better than those movies, although it pains me to have to weigh things like modern action sequences against classic cool and/or iconic scenes, like with Doctor No.

      But this movie buries Goldneye and then some. The other two as well…. It’s not even that close, man. This movie was that good.

  12. Glad to see License To Kill makes your top 10 man, though on my list certainly TLD would’ve make my top 10 as well :) I do agree that Casino Royale remains my favorite though, Skyfall is VERY good indeed but CR is darn near perfect in my book and it’s got my fave Bond girl of all time.

    • Yup yup and yup!

      The Living Daylights WAS top ten for me! Until this weekend… LOL :D Thunderball lost its spot as “Top Five”, too. :(

      Its a good thing though. Glad to see the best Bonds are happening right now. This is a great time to be a Bond fan. A very very good time. :D

  13. Agree with your rankings. Goldfinger’s my favorite, followed by From Russia With Love, Thunderball, Skyfall, Dr. No, and Casino Royale (I do love Connery as Bond). I would say A View To Kill is probably the worst. The only good thing about it was Christopher Walken.

    • Yeah, I think May Day could have been different if they had used her differently. Jones was unique looking and had an intensity about her, but she (and most things) were wasted within that crappy flick. LOL

      Classic Connerys sprinkled with the good Craigs. Gotcha. Cant go wrong, CK. LOL :D

  14. Man. Just when I think the Bond is over, here’s more. It’s totally awesome though. It only pains me because due to circumstances I will not be able to see Skyfall until Thanksgiving, which is just a crazy long time to wait. Salt in the open wound…. So I had to skip the Skyfall stuff, but pumped because it’s ranked so high.
    I actually have a question that I probably should have asked earlier, but which Bond film has the spaceship that’s eating the smaller spaceship? I was trying to describe it to a friend and I couldn’t remember which film it was from…. I”m pretty sure it is a Bond film and one of the earlier ones. The movies usually get mixed up in my mind because most of them I’ve only seen partially on cable whenever they come on.
    But yeah, the list looks solid to me! Definitely agree with your number one! I can’t even really go much farther because it’s been so long since I’ve seen most of them…. but I’d probably put Goldeneye as number two because of Sean Bean and his evil Britishness. My goal was to have them all watched by Bond 23, but now it’s to have them all watched by Bond 24 (guilty face), whenever that may be.

    • Answer: You Only Live Twice. Blofeld captures the capsules up in space, trying to trick the US and Russia into war :D

      Clever, wasn’t he? I could never figure out… if you’ve got all that money to begin with, why bother? You’ve gotta be eeeeeevil I guess.

      It does suck that you have to see Skyfall :( Its SO good! :D You’ll love it though.

      Meanwhile, yes. This is the last Bond for awhile. I swear. Back to the rest of the film universe, starting tomorrow!

      • Yeah! It’s like what is he going to gain by having the US and Russia destroy the entire world with nuclear weapons? How will that benefit him? Probably just one of those evil plans that are just there to be really evil so the hero can look good when he foils it. But a spaceship eating another spaceship…. I just can’t get over it.
        Very pumped for Skyfall. I will see it, I got the day picked out and everything!! It’s frustrating though because I was planning on a early showing on Thursday but then a variety of things happened that made it impossible.
        Also pumped for the rest of the film universe though! Always exciting!
