Recently caught "The World Is Not Enough" on Showtime.. I remember when I was younger at a Bond movie, my friend's mom would cover our eyes during the **** scenes (lol)..

Anyway, which is your favorite movie, or Bond? I'll have to buy the rest of Brosnan's and Craig's when I have the money.. Thinking about the series makes me miss GoldenEye for the N64, too ;;

Although Sean Connery is the only Bond and the rest are poor imitators, A View To A Kill was great, mainly because Christopher Walken is a freaking awesome villain.

Timothy Dalton certainly isn't my favorite Bond, but I really liked License to Kill. Bond going rouge & killing all the bad guys is good times.

As silly as it was, Goldfinger. I also rather enjoyed Moonraker, Diamonds are Forever, Octopussy, The World is Not Enough, Die Another Day, and Casino Royal. I also liked one of the Timothy Dalton ones, but I can't remember which of the two it was. I've never seen all of the one he got married in, I just caught the end which kind of ruined it for me, but I'd like to watch it eventually.

He used makeup to kill the bad guys?

It's the newest craze. Why just recently Bethesda Softworks hopped on the bandwagon and released Rouge Warrior.

My favorite was Diamonds are Forever, and my second favorite was Live and Let Die.

I really do like most of them but to me it's a toss up between Sean Connery and Roger Moore as my favorite Bond. My favorite old age movie is a split between Moonraker for Roger Moore and Goldfinger for Sean Connery.

I did enjoy Pierce Brosman as Bond but liked Daniel Craig's depiction of him as the rough around the edges, younger James Bond before he became a suave, chauvinistic womanizer better.

Man with a Golden Gun. Was my first Bond movie I think. And Sean Connery is the only James Bond. However Zorin is the best villain.

Casino Royale was nice, but mostly for Eva Green.

The original Casino Royale!

I can't believe more than one person in the world liked Moonraker, aka "Star Wars made a lot of money lets put Bond in space!"

Heh, I wonder how many folks even know that it exists >.<

I still come back to "You Only Live Twice" whenever I look back on Bond films. It had everything: volcano lair, man eating fish trap, ninjas, Little Nelly, and an amazing Barry soundtrack with Nancy Sinatra. It was also ridiculous in its conceit that Bond would be able to a) pass as Japanese and b) become a ninja after a few hours training.

Total popcorn flick.

The Craig Bonds are great (particularly the first one) and are picking up what Dalton tried (and failed) to do with the series. That isn't to place any marks against Dalton, but rather the producers for not going with his serious take and running with it. I do wish his (Craig's) Aston would survive longer than sixty seconds per film, though. Love, love, love those cars.

"On Her Majesty's Secret Service" deserves honorable mention, Lazenby aside...
