  • Cubby passed on during the following summer before Tomorrow Never Dies had even got off the ground.

    Have to say that TND did have a very good tune, said that before, and I seem to dislike the Goldeneye Turner effort more each time I hear it

    Sheryl Crowe was probably the last time there was a decent theme intro for Bond , if you take the Cornell tune out of it, at least on a 'Bond diva' level.

    didn't really go downhill as you put it since GE, I thought TWINE was a better picture, at least for Brosnan and Casino Royale was a fun ride even if I fail to recognize the next Bond entry more often than not

    Don't often talk about the Garbage effort from TWINE, If I think about it now i'm in two minds as to whether I love it or hate it, it's a vast improvement on some others around the time but I still think it's lacking something vital.

    I mentioned the sexually implicit images of OP earlier...

    But my personal favorites have to be:

    YOLT: I love the look of this with the Japanes imagery; Binder does an exceptional job-my favorite of his works

    FRWL: Colour projection and credits on belly dancer: Simple, yet effective

    Runner up: Dr. No - this looks incredible for 1962 - "groovy" indeed

    Wrong thread @JBFan626
  • Connery : Goldfinger

    Moore : Live And Let Die (THE BEST)

    Dalton : License To Kill

    Brosnan : GoldenEye ( Great intro)

    Craig : You Know My Name

    Sean Connery: Goldfinger without question, although Thunderball is good too

    Moore: Such a close call, but I'm going to give it to 'Nobody Does It Better' by a hair. 'Live and Let Die' is more in tune with the music I listen to and is also a phenomenal song, but something about 'Nobody Does It Better' gets me every time. A special mention needs to go to 'A View to a Kill' as well; Moore had the best title songs

    Dalton: Neither of them are great, but I'll give it to License to Kill

    Brosnan: Would've given it to k.d. Lang's 'Surrender', but as it is a MAIN title song thread I will give it to 'The World Is Not Enough'. Honestly, GE, TND and TWINE are just about as good as each other; DAD is the sore thumb

    Craig: 'You Know My Name' for sure, one of my favorite Bond songs

    I must have been half asleep when I made my last post (laughs). What I should have said is that the theme songs have been less superior to their predecessors since Goldeneye with the exception of The World Is Not Enough. I would say the same about the films, but since and including Goldeneye with the exception of Casino Royale which is a good film. This is just my opinion of course.

    SC - FRWL

    GL - OHMSS (i would've said this even if he'd done more films, its perfect for this film)

    RM - live and let die (not just the best bond song but one of the best songs ever)

    TD - TLD (as much as i loved licence TLD had a better theme)

    PB - TWINE (fantastic song)

    DC - you know my name (the best bond song in along time)

    Moore - Nobody Does It Better
    Connery - Goldfinger/Diamonds are Forever (I can't decide; it's a tie for me)
    Dalton - The Living Daylights
    Brosnan - The World is Not Enough
    Craig - You Know My Name

    You Only Live Twice was lovely, too.

    Really can't stand DAD and not keen on Goldeneye either

    Connery: YOLT, then Matt Monro's FRWL. Am I the first to admit I like NSNA?
    Lazenby: OHMSS, then WHATTITW
    Moore: AVTAK, then perhaps LALD (although I do enjoy Lulu's fiesty MWTGG)
    Dalton: LTK, closely followed by TLD
    Brosnan: GE, although I am quite fond of TND and Surrender
    Craig: YKMN. SF has grown on me a lot, but YKMN is more dynamic
