From a comment Boris made:

Who is the best Bond?

I'm going to say



Flame on - I would have said Connery but IMO Craig was better. More badass.

I am a big fan of the way the franchise has gone with Daniel Craig as 007.

It isn't a parody, it isn't a gadget movie, it isn't soft core porn with implausible plot lines, it is a good spy thriller.

Pierce Bronsan in "Golden Eye" was really good...i have fond memories of the girls Roger Moore played with...but Craig plays it far more tougher. i vote for Bronsan.

Goldeneye was one of the best games to come out for Nintendo 64 too...FWIW.

I'm 100% with you on that. Connery was best before Craig, more modern, more badass and that torture scene when his balls get kicked, that was just painful.

Chicks tend to gravitate to Brosnan for some reason, but he just lacks raw power and manliness, and I wander if he even play on our team, gnome saying?

Yes, but this is how the original books were intended to be.

And oh, I like sean connery.

The last two didn't feel like Bond movies to me, they seemed like they could be any spy action flick. Almost like I was watching Jason Bourne or Taken.

There is only one James Bond. Brosnan doesn't even count. Craig - they had to use someone and Connery is 126 years old. But Connery is the one James Bond

I really liked the last two movies. However, I think Connery was the best Bond.




Looks like someone's gonna need to start a BEST BOND GIRL thread now...lol. [wink]
My pick would be Xenia Onatopp from Goldeneye played by Famke Janssen.

You can't really beat Connery. He defined Bond- there's a reason he had the longest run. DAF is pretty much living proof of this.

Yeah. Daniel Craig is as close as anyone has gotten to being worthy of the name, but Connery is still the one true Bond. The Daniel Craig movies were trying too hard, Bond should always have that self-aware sense of humor.

Timothy Dalton.

No, but seriously, most are good. No love for Roger Moore? I liked him for his wit and down to earth humor. I also like how most actual Brits think he was the worst Bond because he was too "Americanized." [smile]

Here we go:

Ok fine, I don't think Pierce Brosnan was a good Bond, I just like him because he has a... certain look to him *swoon* ;)

All that aside, I like Daniel Craig. He's a total badass!

I think Timothy Dalton sucks more than Moore. Dalton tried to make Bond all P.C
I don't really blame Dalton for how those films turned out. I think there was a deliberate attempt by the creators to make Bond more serious, and Dalton ended up "eating" the consequences of that in the long term.

The Living Daylights wasn't too bad.... but License To Kill was pretty terrible, from the plot all the way down.
