No, older Bond fans don’t like the new movies. Not sure I agree with the ‘middling’ comment. Die Another Day was quite the opposite of Dr No. It’s a matter of opinion guys, get over it. Think a car turning into a submarine and then flying off would’ve helped? | 169,837 Critics Consensus: Absurd even by Bond standards, A View … And such a waste of Monica Bellucci’s time and acting-talents. I think with Craig’s characterisation the idea is what training and background, personality, provides this character with a license to kill and ability to do it. A fake Fabergé egg, and a fellow Agent's death, lead James Bond to uncover an international jewel-smuggling operation, headed by the mysterious Octopussy, being used to disguise a nuclear attack on N.A.T.O. He didn’t look so interested. James Bond sets out to stop a media mogul's plan to induce war between China and the UK in order to obtain exclusive global media coverage. Agent Emilio Largo in an international extortion scheme. And I’ve begun to sympathize with the film, and I am now convinced that there is an intelligent film behind it. | Respectfully disagree on all accounts. | Of course everything is subjective and what I believe might be the antithesis of another opinion. 4. $125.33M, PG-13 How did they feel about Broke Back Mountain? Action, Adventure, Thriller. FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE- Epic entry, the higher budget shows. Pierce is a damned fine actor, but…a bit ‘over-exposed’, in a way I cannot quite put into words. Director: Director: How can you say something like Dalton is a more serious grittier Bond but the movies lack in humor, as a downside; but put casino royale at the top of the list? Oh they left a trail only a hacker could follow so Bond goes by himself to his childhood home? Topol, Daniela Bianchi, Votes: Stars: In my opinion, Daniel Craig’s Casino Royale was the superior film. Still a Top 5 contender though. John Glen | So effortless is… 145,471 Just watched all eon movies besides spectre since Christmas from Dr. No through to skyfall having never watched a full Bond movie all the way through in my life. Action, Adventure, Thriller. QOS is actually not that bad, and is still better than Spectre and Skyfall. James Bond is assigned to find a missing British vessel, equipped with a weapons encryption device and prevent it from falling into enemy hands. That’s what I’m talking about. I think deep down Ang might’ve truly wanted to be a ‘teacher’ but his life took him elsewhere, so now he uses the directors chair to get his point across to a wider audience. Connery and Q had marvelous chemistry, whereas the new Q is a “team player”. What do they imagine it was like in the days of “Unforgiven”? | I dare say it ‘feels’ better thanSpectre to me, on a darker, grittier level. You KNOW he still has feelings for Vesper, both good and bad. Judi Dench, Votes: I don’t know how you can all the Fleming novels excellent and say you detest the brutal, brooding Bond. The action is vastly outdated compared to modern works as well. From Russia With Love 4. Also keep in mind ‘Skyfall’ (rather than being ‘all about’ Bond) was ENTIRELY built around the core-premise of Judy Dench’s character facing her (inevitable) ‘cum-uppance’ from previous dealings in the intelligence-community. And yes give Die Another Day another try. It was boring and incoherent. One of my favorites. The thing that killed the ending for me is when M and Finney’s character use a flashlight to attempt to escape the assault on the house – like they wouldn’t know it would be seen. I agree… with the list. Daniel Craig is the worst Bond yet, by far. Seems like the story, such as it was, was peripheral, a prop to present two dudes indulging themselves. Goldfinger. Casino Royale- Craig was extremely serious as Bond. 7. Daniel Craig himself ended up writing parts of that movie. Say that all you want, they’re still going to call you one. | Gross: Some of the Sean Connery stuff used to be my favorites, but they are truly showing their age at this point. What a retarded list. Skyfall was middling. Louis Jourdan, 115 min | Also how the fuck did Batman get pass his physical and psych evaluation without falling into a pit. | Gross: 103,880 | Lois Chiles, Carey Elwess would’ve made a great double-o in the early yrs; very ‘physical’…but he didn’t develop his ‘dangerous/fully-matured’ on-screen persona’ until ‘Twister’ and ‘Saw’. There is certainly signs of director’s intent (i.e 4 action sequences based on the 4 classic elements: wind, air, fire, water, which ties in with the villain’s motives) and had everything gone as initially intended, I have a feeling it might have been the most intelligent of all Bond films. subject among the ranchers/ranch-hands/cowboys I associate with in my profession. Daniela Bianchi, Votes: | Action, Adventure, Thriller. PG-13 | 143 min | Action, Adventure, Thriller | Sure, there were holes like the flashlight escape scene but all in all dark and atmospheric like the moors. As for me (a movie fan) I am still disgusted with Ang Lee’s short-sighted/tiny-minded SELFISH decision to lift his EXTREMELY well-orchestrated depiction of ‘forbidden love’ directly out of ‘Crouching-Tiger’, and CARELESSLY inserting it into Annie Proulyx’s (unsettling) story of two young day-working sheepherders in the early 60’s Wyoming (actually Canadian) setting, to the thunderous-applause of the Hollywood ‘elite’. Not only the best James Bond film but one of the greatest action films of all time. All rights reserved. Skyfall starts super serious then attempts to give us a throwback Thursday jaunt thru nostalgiaville but it quickly abandons the feeling of terror that Silva instills in all sex slaves. Man with the Golden Gun in the bottom 5? GoldenEye was intoxicating Certified Fresh fun, while the three that followed are all Rotten. Timothy Dalton, I really never understood all the love for Skyfall, I thought that movie Well, anyway – opinions, which makes the whole thing fun; better than discussing politics. Moore’s Spy Who Loved Me is my second favorite Bond film next to Thunderball. While investigating a gold magnate's smuggling, James Bond uncovers a plot to contaminate the Fort Knox gold reserve. Especially the train scene. Charles Gray, Not light or humorous like previous entries, but fast moving and enjoyable. Moore’s films drifted into parody over time. he was suave as well. Charles Gray, I don’t want him tied down to the franchise for a decade to come. Roger Moore, | Gross: Skyfall was the continuation & culmination of Craig’s Bond origin story, before launching into fully established 007 Bond mode in Spectre. It features a villain with plausible motives instead of some nefarious Dr. Lazerby by himself puts his flic in the 25th position; I can feel your pain, but LaZENby was’nt by himself; he had Diana Riggs, Telly Savalas and (arguably) the 2nd most dangerous and irritating old ‘crone’ (femme-fatale) to share the screen with; and quite frankly, most of the other girls were quite beautiful even by today’s standards. As for the ‘character-study’…I see your point, but only from the perspective of the relationship between ‘M’ and Bond. Here’s my TOP 26: Top quality films!!! Die Another Day is famously bad, but is ridiculously enjoyable and really only falls apart in the third act. Director: Quantum of Solace (2008) Film critic Roger Ebert said all that really needs to be said about Quantum of Solace in the first line of his 2008 ... 23. Spectre (2015) 21. A notch or two below Moonraker. As for Roger Moore films being the worst, I respectfully disagree. James Bond is targeted by the world's most expensive assassin, while he attempts to recover sensitive solar cell technology that is being sold to the highest bidder. Stars: $22.80M, PG-13 Who WAS Alec Treveleyan ? Akiko Wakabayashi, Why don’t you all fuck off outside and do something? | | | Gross: | Gross: | After capturing a drug lord, Felix Leiter is left for dead and his wife is murdered. Copyright © 2018 Fandango. This lists are always designed to make people go out and watch the new movie or buy the new album. Roger Moore, Quantum Solace, Skyfall and Casino Royal either steal ideas from Bourne movies or they just use that stupid shakey cam bullshit which makes every action scene look ridiculous. Lazenby was a temporary convenience needed to keep the franchise moving along; and sadly, he DID allow his newfound stardom ‘go to his head’. | Ralph Fiennes, Votes: Okay, then I won’t tell you you’re wrong. Action, Adventure, Thriller. Judi Dench, Votes: Thoroughly agree – FRWL will always be #1 for me. The costumes, script, black gangsters, Baron Samedi, and sheriff J.W. DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER (might be my least favorite) I would replace Die Another Day and Dr. No in the most liked section for Live and Let Die and Tomorrow Never Dies. “Can’t miss him. And my very worst was Connery’s Diamonds Are Forever. Director: TOMORROW NEVER DIES- (A bit dull , but enjoyable nonetheless) It wasn’t the worst James Bond film but it DEFINITELY wasn’t the best. Someone who would manipulate world events to increase his media empire’s ratings and profits was fun. $35.38M. Interesting and surprising.
