    Afghanistan, beautiful cinematography, adventure, romance, heroism,
    Incredibly epic sequence, the bridge explosion.
    Exciting, suspenseful, gripping.
    And Barry providing the best score in the series to it.

    GOLDENEYE is never as great as in the PTS and the Title Sequence. I went into the theater with zero expectations. I felt that the series had basically died, I didn't care for the idea of Brosnan as Bond (I was one of the few people that were relieved when Dalton got the role) and, despite the presence of Desmond Llewelyn and the Gun Barrel, I didn't feel that this was the same character or universe.

    I was immediately was sucked in by those two excellent sequences, and by Pierce's take on the role. Unfortunately we switch to one of the weakest and most grating scene sin the film immediately following, and it never reaches those heights again...though there are still many more wonderful bits and performances. It pops in and out of my Top Ten.

    Bond and the psychiatrist in the car: the horrible, grating score, the sophomoric puns and innuendo that would permeate and in some ways define the Brosnan Era, the bicycle gag, that whole mess. If it was given a proper soundtrack and edited to down to just the interplay between Bond and Xenia (no Caroline), without the gags, it would be alright. The M scenes are strong, most of the scenes with any of three major villains are very good. I do not like the tank chase, I don't understand why it is so beloved.

    General Gogol getting his last scene and waved goodbye so to speak.

    I love that moment!

    End credits, best ever secondary Bond themes, If There Was A Man and Where Has Everybody Gone.

    Missiles coming in...ejecting out of the graveyard.
    ....Tbh @birdleson its a very re-watchable film...i have watched 3 Bonds today (first time in years) TB,AVTAK and am in mid GE...GE has re-watchability out of the three,i can see that first hand....and ,although it doesnt apply to me,a lot of members grew up with Brosnan ,he is their Bond,and this is his beginning..

    Yes, I often say that GE is that generation's GF. There are many parallels both in and around the films. Great double-feature.

    I watched DN two times last week :D

    Probably the same will happen to me with FRWL, it features my absolute favourite ally Ali Kerim Bey, oh and how I love his girl yearning for him...

    up to "oh spare me this sentimental rubbish" in LTK.

    DALTON RULEZ™ completely

    Seeing him act makes me realise once more how truly average Craig is in the acting department.
    One can only hope EON will hire another actor of the calibre of Dalton for Bond 25 or Bond 26.

    The PTS is great. The score, which I don't like too much overall, also works brilliantly in the PTS.
    The personal angle with Felix and his wife, the marriage and the cruel fate is getting to me every time. I can feel Bond's anger and grief. Dalton sees to it.

    The film is beautifully shot, similar like TB, it feels like a holiday movie for a good part.

    Dalton looks great in this first 35 minutes and he is doing all the stunts himself like he did in TLD. If that only could be said of the current films.

    Even if Dalton only had two films, it was enough to turn me into a passionate life long Bond fan.
    The emotional roller-coaster-ride LTK put me through back in 1989 was quite unpleasant. I was only 15 and the violence was a bit much. Later I learned to love LTK, almost as much as I love TLD.

    Sadly as it is now 01:15 I must sleep, I will continue watching LTK tomorrow before I will watch FRWL.

    You should NEVER pause a Bond film overnight....it loses at least 25% ...so LTK has now lost to that other film

    If you cut out the goofy scenes (bar fight, the silliness with Q, about half of Pam Bouvier) and shorten the truck chase at the end it would be perfect. And it needs a much better Title Song and much much better Title Sequence.
