I actually may be one of the few who enjoyed the Brosnan movies.  I have to say the Moore films are my favs though. 

How about dumb Bond moments in general?  I remember in one Connery came across a killer spider and slammed his shoe on it several times.  That scene always p!ssed my dad off while watching it.

The World Is Not Enough was pretty awful.. so was View To A Kill and Moonraker (I initially loved it as a kid, but now..).
My favorites are The Spy Who Loved Me, License To Kill, Dr. No, and On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

...we don't  usually insult or otherwise rag on each other for liking/not liking any given movie...


Ah see no need to bring me into this conversation. TongueOut




Halloween 2...

Superman, yes, but that's really quite a leap.



My vote, out of the ones I've seen, is for Diamonds Are Forever. I love how a car can tilt on two wheels to evade police down an alley, and come out of the alley on the opposite set of wheels; now that's skill. The beautiful special effects used for blowing the helicopters out of the sky I believe came straight from an arcade game in the 70s called Ace of Aces; just superimpose an obviously fake fireball over the hit target. It's not a good one, or even close, but at least it moves pretty well and can be fun, but grating.


I liked Brosnan as Bond. I personally think he's right up there with Connery as the best Bond; certainly he has more charm than any other Bond. I did not care for Die Another Day though; great, if not a little fake looking at times, special effects, I'm just still waiting for them to add characters to the story.


I do enjoy Live and Let Die; I mean come on, the speed boat chase alone is worth the price of admission, not to mention the way cool theme song.


And what the hell is the comment about blaxploitation co-stars? My apologies if I'm missing some kind of reference in that.

I grew up with Roger Moore as my Bond, so I pretty much love all his movies.  Octop***y and Moonraker are two of my huge favorites (probably doesn't hurt that I was a gigantic Star Wars fan back then  TeddyR ).  The Spy Who Loved Me and For Your Eyes Only are excellent IMO as well.  Though even I have to admit that A View To A Kill was pretty weak, it was just so silly and crammed full of pop culture, from the Duran Duran theme song to Grace Jones. 

I have to admit that although I generally like the Sean Connery movies, I'm not a huge fan;  though I am a huge fan of Connery in general.  Dr. No and From Russia with love are both good, and You Only Live Twice is definitely my favorite.  Goldfinger though - other than the awesome theme song I've never enjoyed that one.  And Thunderball...just too silly for me.

Lazenby's movie is a big favorite of mine.  I loved the atmosphere, thought George made for a refreshing change, and Diana Rigg was just awesomely hot  TeddyR

Of the Dalton movies, I thought License to Kill was quite excellent, it really fit the mold of what I think a Bond film should be.  I didn't really care for The Living Daylights, I thought Maryam d'Abo was pretty terrible in the co-starring role.

I liked the first Brosnan movie, GoldenEye, it had a pretty interesting plot and overall I thought Brosnan made an okay Bond.  The next few were really ruined by Judi Dench as M;  I mean, this is James Bond, he's saved the whole world from destruction on quite a few occasions, and Dench just treats him in the most disrespectful manner imaginable.  And the action got to the point where they were more like superhero movies than semi-believable secret agent movies.

I liked all of them except one.

Quantum of Solace.

One word...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGG!!!

It was dull and uninteresting. The plot made no sense, the villains had no character, and worst of all...

James Bond was emo! That is WRONG on 1,000 levels!

I mean who turns a quirky character who spouts one-liners emo?

 

...Oh, right....

Octop**sy, Jack? Come on, we're all adults here. You won't be banned for naming a James Bond movie.

Besides, aren't most the woman named after innuendos?

THIS is my problem with the latest Bond movies.  Bond, although apparently just starting, comes off as whiny at times with hardly a bit of charm and overconfidence that makes him likeable.  Craig has the look and the build to pass as a bad@ss but the script just won't let him move on.  I hope that the next one proves to be an improvement in this dept.

  I agree with the opinion that Quantam of Solace featured an emo Bond. As far as the quality of the Bond movies go, that one was the worst, and for that reason.

  However, I have very negative feelings towards The Living Daylights. They have nothing to do with the movie, although I did think Dalton's Bond was a little too...boring? I had a rotten experience when I went to see Living Daylights. I had been in Las Vegas for a week, my first trip, and had probably gotten all of 3 hours sleep for the entire week. The day I got back I took this very cute girl that I  liked out to see The Living Daylights. I guess the week of high living, the dark, warm theater and the "stoic" acting of TImothy Dalton combined to put me to sleep. When I woke up during the movie's credits, I looked around and the girl was gone. She'd taken a cab home. And since we worked together it was some time before I heard the end of it.

Agree here... This is why I have such a mix feeling with Dalton. One movie is trash the other is top dog.

@Trekkie313... you need to watch a few movies made before Star Wars and then a few movies after... you might see the connection. The Star Wars Box Office success is a movie making influence that actually altered what we see in the movies for almost 10 years or so... Not only space films but scripting and film editing was also influenced into something that we call “Summer Movies/Films”

True, Moonraker tried to cash-in with space from Star Wars success... but James Bond movies always has a space connection...



You Only Live Twice...



Diamonds Are Forever…

And since Derek Flint went into space it was a matter of timming for James Bond to go into space.
