valid point. Early/most Bond movies up till the Craig era had, lets say one liners, poking fun etc. every bond movie doesn't need to be an explosion fest.  don't get me wrong. Bond films are built on unrealistic scenes. but to me that is what makes a Bond film a bit. UNTIL....................... they go really nuts. its a fine line. keep it Bond or Become Jason Bourne or Pussy Cruise mission Impossibles

Pussy Cruise ?

I'm not into those films but the guy voluntarily strapped himself to the outside of a plane as it took off.

That's like the least "pussy" thing i've ever seen.

He also trained himself to hold his breath under water for a pretty ridiculous amount of time for another scene. He's out of his mind, but he puts in serious work for his stunts.

He had to wear contacts and have a perspex shield on him on the plane because at those speeds - if anything hits him in the face - it's bad news.

He filmed 12 takes of it.

Since I worked for a cruise line, my mind initially went in a different direction when I read "Pussy Cruise," which sounds like just about the greatest thing ever.

I don't dislike Connery's Bond, but I don't revere it either. I have always been more partial to the later Connery roles regardless. He played the elder badass better than anyone.

Moore was my first Bond, so I have a soft spot for his, for the most part.

I saw OHMSS but could barely tell you anything about it but the ending, it made such little impression on me.

Dalton's films seem like second rate 80s action films these days.

I really enjoy Brosnan's films. Cheese, plot holes, whatever, they are fun and enjoyable.

Craig's films have ranged from great to excellent. I am curious to see what his career is like post-Bond.

I don't particularly care who the next Bond is, or even if they make more with another actor.

Brosnan was a great Bond but got shafted with shit scripts. Other than Goldneye - his films were poor.

I can't decide on a ranking. Too many films and not a good enough memory of them all.

Top 2 : Goldeneye and Casino Royale ( Craig ).

I don't hate him.  He's simply my least fav simply because he's an amalgamation of the actors who took the role before him, there is very little unique either personality or trait wise that defined his Bond.
I personally think they got the actors the wrong way round in Goldeneye - Bean Bond, Brosnan Trevelyan.

If I had to rank Brosnan:

1. Goldeneye - awesome movie. And my favorite Bond film
2. Tomorrow never dies- A little wacky by highly entertaining
3. The world is not enough- overall just kind of bland imo, but not really offensive in any way
4. Die another day - makes baby jesus cry

Coincidentally, if I were to rank the Brosnan movies by theme song, it would match my ranking by movie.

If he were to do just one more, then I would be cool with that.

I'll take the video game Everything or Nothing over Die Another Day

(Actually, if that game was a movie, it would rank second or third for me  :lol)

I wish he'd finished with the last one. It was a good sendoff before the usual soft-reboot with a new Bond, and I'd rather not have someone who doesn't seem into it any more. That and the fact I still don't like him as Bond, despite enjoying all of the new films.

He said he made a mistake when he said he would never do another Bond movie.

If people recall he said it was over the top grinding.

It is cool he explained himself. He said this will be the last. I actually think it is fitting, then reboot in a few year with Idris Elba as the next BOND.

I hope he goes out on a high note.  There was so much leading up to Spectre, and it was made even more disappointing by the fact that Skyfall was so amazing, and made the whole Craig-era story arc seem like it was going somewhere even bigger and better.   And even though Waltz did such a great job for his part playing Blofeld, I think the script really undermined the character...and Waltz's performance. 

When writing Blofeld....THE Bond nemesis...you probably better go out of your way to make sure he's the best villain in the series.   Instead, he was completely outshined in every possible way by the previous villain, Silva.

That sums up my feeling of Spectre well. Great, enjoyable movie, solid Bond film, but a bit of a drop off after Skyfall.

They really dropped the ball with Spectre. If you're going to cast a great actor like Waltz to play the villain, take advantage of it. They didn't. It was all extremely forgettable.

I thought SPECTRE was awful. It just felt so straitforward and bland, and oh my god. How do you cast Waltz who is an excellent actor and then proceed to make me bored and underwhelmed by his character. It was also very visually underwhelming as well. Just very dull all around.

And I'm sorry but making them being brothers is retarded. Who the hell thought that would be a good idea? They literally did that in Austin powers 3 FFS, and it was dumb then.

Also, on a personal note, Radiohead's song SPECTRE was supposed to be the original theme song. I really love that song and was very disappointed and it was swapped for Writing on the wall.

The only part of the film I like was the cool tracking shot at the beginning during the Day of the Dead, and then it just went downhill from there.

I enjoyed Spectre. It has problems, and isn't at all as good as Skyfall or Casino Royal, but still an enjoyable movie for the most part.
