Skyfall, but I could have voted for Spectre as well.

Casino Royale, because..... Eva Green




But I don't think any of Craig's Bond movies are as good as the Pierce Brosnan ones.

Same here.

Quantum of Solace was terrible. Skyfall and Spectre were OK, but they seemed pretty forgettable. I can't really remember all that much from them. I have only seen the last 3 once though, so I might be being a bit harsh.

Interesting. I don't think most of Brosnan's have held up well in my opinion. I have always loved GoldenEye but the others haven't done much more me. Craig is my favorite Bond to date, though, so that doesn't help. I even like Quantum of Solace to some degree.

Skyfall was my choice. I loved having more backstory on Bond as a character while still having the usual Bond beats. It was just an interesting story in my opinion and I loved Javier Bardem's performance, too.

Casino Royale.  The gambling scenes are so intense.

I love Skyfall, but grow tired of Javier Bardem.  It felt like he was just doing his No Country for Old Men villian again.

Not much I can add to this for myself. I would rank it Skyfall >> Spectre >>>>>>>>>>> Casino Royale [way to many >s to type] Quantum (with the caveat I saw Quantum in the theater during a very stressful period in which I didn't get much solid sleep for days - long story - and I was thus very tired and might have dozed at some point).

I don't think most of Brosnan's have held up well in my opinion. I have always loved GoldenEye but the others haven't done much more me.

I think the first three Brosnan films are fun and re-watchable. I am quite fond of Goldeneye because 1) I think it is a solid movie, 2) I soured on Bond at the end of Moore's tenure and never bought in to Dalton's films and this film was a great way to bring Bond in to the post-Cold War era, and 3) my huge man-crush on Sean Bean.

Casino Royale.  The gambling scenes are so intense.

The problem with those scenes though, is that for every single hand, every single person played their hand exactly as they should have.

Skyfall is my choice!

I love Javier Bardem as the villain, one of the greatest bond-villains of all time. Similarly Adele performed a top 5 bond theme, really starts the movie with a bang. Casino Royale is great as well. Spectre was good, but it feels too long. They could have trimmed the story a little bit, to make it feel less plodding.


I seriously struggle to get through Quantum. I like the title song. But the action scenes give me a physical headache! There is one action scene every 10 minutes, and all of them use nauseating amount of shaky cam and quick jump cuts. Next time any of you are watching Quantum, pay attention to the action scenes. Every shot last no more than 3 seconds, and then they jump cut to different angle. Add in the shaky cam, and this movie makes me want to puke!

Not my genre of music at all but I love Spectre's theme, Writing's on the Wall.

How do I live? how do I breathe? when you're not here I'm suffocating...

But come on, for us rock / prog / metal lovers we have to cheer for Chris Cornell getting a rock song into a Bond movie  :metal

Fun fact: Alice Cooper is a big fan of Bond movies, and back in the day the title card at the end of a movie would annunce the next one, such as "James Bond will return in The Man with the Golden Gun". He wrote a song with that specific title thinking they'd be basically forced to use it, but they were still passed over.
