    With a Thanksgiving Bondathon on Spike, and with the James Bond forums being closed, I feel that (like the Star Wars thread) the Bond franchise can get it's own mega thread. With that said, this is a thread to discuss Bond-related films, past and present, except Bond 22, because that has and should have it's own thread.

    Discuss!

    Timothy Dalton was my favorite bond, making my favorite Bond film with Living Daylights! It's interesting my British friend I made here agrees with me but everyone in America I know hates Dalton...

    I liked Dalton. It's just that in my hierarchy of Bonds, he isn't so high. I thought The Living Daylights was a solid film (especially after A View to a Kill, which was only good because it has my favorite title song, and Walken is in it). Licence to Kill is such a guilty pleasure for me. It's one of my favorite Bond films.

    Favorite Bonds:

    1. Pierce Brosnan
    2. Sean Connery
    3. Daniel Craig
    4. Timothy Dalton
    5. Roger Moore
    6. George Lazenby

    It got closed down.
    It's something you're going to have to ask Mirko and EXCELSIOR about.

    I won't be watching them on TV cuz of the commercial breaks. For me the Bond of film is such a far cry from the Bond of literature that sometimes I don't wanna watch the movies. As for closest to the books, it's gotta be Dalton. If Craig's hair was black he would be perfect.

    ...I'm sorry? This is the Bond thread for previous Bond films.

    Casino Royale and On Her Majesty's Secret Service are both Bond films from the past.

    You know, I'm not much into the Bond lore, but just recently I checked a few threads on this site as well as a couple of websites on the recommendation of which I bought Goldfinger and Living Daylights. And surprisingly, after watching both films I liked Living Daylights better especially after hearing consistent praises about Goldfinger being the best Bond film to date.

    Hate to say it but Brosnan is probably my least favourite Bond ...

    I don't think its his fault and I really like Goldeneye but the three movies that followed were all over the place. Die Another Day was a shambles.

    I grew up with Moore as Bond so he will always be a favouite but like others I think Dalton really nailed the role.

    Connery will always be the main man but time has not been kind on his movies and I now find I just tend to laugh my way through most of them.

    They're more or less the same.

    Goldfinger is my favorite, followed by Goldeneye and Octopussy.

    bond rules and all, but the inconsistency kills the series. that being said i love from russia with love and goldfinger, with the obvious choice of connery as the best bond.

    however i might be crazy and the only one, but i liked the pseudo parody films In Like Flint and Our Man Flint a bit better.
