I'd probably say Casino Royale or GoldenEye is the best Bond movie for me, but Spectre is looking awesome. If Christoph Waltz is as good of a Bond villain that we hope he is, it will be amazing.

Would anyone not choose Goldeneye for Brosnan?

For me the hardest era was Roger Moore because his movies was those I watched the most as a kid, I guess I liked the humor Moore brought in. I'm not saying he was the best Bond, he just had something I liked.

The Roger Moore era was also the toughest for me to choose from. The rest were instantly obvious choices for me, but Moore didn't have one clear standout over all the rest (take that as good or bad). I think all of his earlier movies were pretty good.

I watched all of the Bond films around the same time when I got into it, but I ended up watching the Moore ones the most too. Maybe it was also because of the fun and humour, which is something I enjoy. Not that I don't enjoy the more serious ones.

Connery: From Russia With Love (awesome)
Lazenby: On Her Majesty's Secret Service (lol)
Moore: For Your Eyes Only (underrated, never really see this mentioned when talking Moore's Bond)
Dalton: The Living Daylights (fuck yeah)
Brosnan: Goldeneye (still overrated though)
Craig: Skyfall (awesome; Casino Royale is amazing too though)

Connery: Goldfinger  - my first Connery bond. FRWL a close second.
Moore: Tough. Like BVD said, the variance in Moore's films is low. They seem more formulaic than they did for the other actors. I think they had a more consistent team working on them(?).
Dalton: Push.
Brosnan: Goldeneye. A top 5 Bond film for me. Very rewatchable. I rank TWINE higher that others seem to. Robbie Coltrain was so good in this and Goldeneye (along with Joe Don Baker).
Craig: Skyfall. Didn't care much for the others, through no fault of Craig's performance.

Moore: The Spy Who Loved Me

Dalton: The Living Daylights

Brosnan: GoldenEye (Although The World Is Not Enough holds a special place for me)

Craig: Casino Royale/Skyfall (Tied)

To move away from rankings slightly, who do you guys think was the best Bond villain, and why?

Hmm... I think I'll give my vote to Red Grant. There's a few other great Bond villains that come to mind like 006, Le Chiffre or Silva, but Grant was the first truly great Bond villain. Beyond that, he also has the unique task of having to keep Bond alive all through out the film until the right opportunity arrives for him to personally assassinate Bond.

Besides, Grant had that incredible fight with Bond on the train and I think that's arguably Connery's finest moment as Bond. :tup

I loved Trevelyn, because, first, super man-crush on Sean Bean, and second, I loved the idea of him trying to get retribution for a perceived(?) wrong done to him and his family by England. When it comes to villains, I am all about their motivation. I am oversimplifying, but I like there to be something more to them than TAKE OVER THE WORLD. Of course even the simplest Bond villains aren't that simple, but you get the point.

I'll do the Bond themes, since I still haven't seen all the Bond films

1. Goldeneye
2. Skyfall
3. For Your Eyes Only
4. Nobody Does It Better
5. Live and Let Die
Hon. Mentions: You Know My Name and View To A Kill

The problem with License To Kill is that it's too long for a Bond theme, and I can't help but laugh at the background vocals (to KILL)

James Bond Distribution Rights Coming Up For Grabs

Would a different studio landing the rights automatically result in the casting of a new Bond?

The best Bond movies are For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, The Spy Who Loved Me, Live and Let Die and Goldfinger.

All of them belong to the best action movies made at the time. Most of the action movies from the era lasted apr. 90 minutes but are without any doubt more boring and past prime today.

For Your Eyes Only in particular is still fun to watch.

You lost me at Live and Let Die. That movie is more comedy than action. It was the Bond series only venture into blaxploitation.   That being said, it's good for a laugh, and at least it's better than Moonraker.  :lol

Difficult to say. Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson said that they'll have Craig on as long as he wants, but idk if the studio has the power to overthrow that.

If they do ditch Craig and his story arc is resolved in the next movie - that would be stupid.

I think given the huge success of Skyfall (and assuming Spectre will also do similarly great), I can't imagine a studio wanting to boot Craig out if he still wants to play the part. It would be a better PR move to not rock the boat.

only venture into blaxploitation!?    :lol

Neither the only or the first,  Diamonds are forever a year before was a lot  worse and turned out to be funny in a bad way. Live and Let Die is entertaining in a good way.

Looking forward to Spectre.

If they recast Bond...  What choices are out there that could equal Craig?  I can't think of anyone except maybe Tom Hardy and Clive Owen.  I think they would make good Bonds.  Maybe Christian Bale too.

I have loved the idea of Elba as Bond ever since I first heard it. It'd be really cool if whoever takes the series on next listens to the fans and actually casts the guy.

He is an excellent actor, and I'm sure that he would do a great job, but I don't get why should be the dream choice.

It's as good as any dream choice. If I hear someone I would like better, I'll switch. But at the moment, Elba gets my vote.

I think Fassbender could be good. Christian Bale isn't suave enough. Tom Hardy would be amazing I think.

Tom Hardy is pretty *in* right now. He seems the obvious choice. Just as long as they don't make Bond a female to please the feminazis it's all good.
