There are a few films in the series that I think are very often under-rated. Here's my list;
My personal favorite Bond movie. I think it's an interesting twist on the classic "Bond-villain tries to start WW3" story. The misinformation Carver spreads via his media empire is an interesting addition to this classic scenario that, with today's media being what it is, gives it a bite of realism and political drama. And the pre-title sequence? Nothing short of fantastic! Sadly this film is often ragged on, if not ignored.
Not necessarily hated by many, this film still seems rather under-appreciated. A few even outright blasting it as terrible. Although it's not one of my personal favorites, if nothing else about this movie was enjoyable, the final scene is pure art. It makes the whole film worthwhile on it's own.
Yes. I'm defending Die Another Day. Yes, Lee Tamahori sucks. Yes, many parts are cringe worthy. Yes, that freaking Robo-Cop looking suit Graves wears is laughable. But even with all this said, I still find it to be an enjoyable, silly, Bond adventure. It's just a matter of expecting the corny-ness, accepting it, and embracing it. :D I like to think of it as a 70's Bond movie that just happened to be made in 2002. It deserves to be made fun of, I make fun of it myself, but I love it at the same time.
