For me would be- License To Kill, Goldfinger and Tommorow Never Dies. Honourable mentions for FYEO,OHMSS and CASINO ROYALE'06

    Would love to see those first two on the big screen with a box of popcorn.

    Having said that, I hope they all return.

    I want to see all 22 on the big screen once again, the way I first saw them, even the 2 stinkbombs from 1979 and 2002. The ones I would most relish seeing again that way would be <i> Goldfinger, Casino Royale, From Russia With Love, and both Dalton films.

    TB, YOLT and OHMSS. They're the first 3 Panavision, big budget epic Bond films and I'd love to see them on the big screen.

    I think they should re release one from each actor. Of course that would make six films. Is that okay? You asked for three so here's my three:

    I have to say:

    DN(for it being first of the films and starting it all)

    I'd have picked CR naturally but it was extremely recent compared to the other films.

    I think they should show all of them, even the more recent ones. But i think if any are reshown it'll be a famous classic like goldfinger or TSWLM, or dr no because its the first.

    Well, fortunately for me, I got to see all the Bond movies up on the big screen at the southbank a few years ago. It was an amazing experience and a costly one at that. If I had to choose 3, I'd pick:

    - Goldfinger
    - On Her Majesty's Secret Service
    - The Living Daylights

    Not my top 3, per se...but all great films nonetheless and ones I'd be very interested in seeing on the big screen!

    FRWL -Can sit through this any day.

    Exactly. I just watched the Ultimate Edition version of YOLT for the first time. I'm sure a pristine print on a theater screen would be a sight to behold. I'm very happy that Lewis Gilbert convinced Broccoli and Saltzman to hire Freddie Young("Doctor Zhivago", "Lawrence of Arabia") for YOLT.

    Dr. No (50th and all that)
    Live and Let Die
    The Living Daylights

    Yes, I picked the first films of these three Bonds. I guess if we put GoldenEye out there, too, it'd be even better.

    On Her Majesty's Secret Service
    For Your Eyes Only

    Thunderball be my last favorite Bond movie, but for a nice price i like to know how the movie wil look and heard like on the Big screen with the problems of the movie. The to long water scene's, the boring music of John Barry. The at the end bad Boat chase. The movie screentime be as Die Another Day or LTK. Wil the movie surfive better in cinema's with the DD 1.0 monotrack then at home (Stereo) on VHS, Tv or Dvd.

    On Her Majesty's Secret Service. This movie have a lot of things to be re-released. The experience of the gunbarrel scene started with a unknown men driving. The very good music. Ski-Chases, The end.

    For Your Eyes Only. This one be offcial released in Stereo i believe, but it be the look of the movie i select this one. Like OHMSS it have Ski-Chases be good reasen to see this one too.

  • The boring music of John Barry? Listen to the disco ski chase music of FYEO as punishment. If you are still not sorry enough watch Octopussy on loop. John Barry is as Important as Cubby,Harry and Sean (plus the great crews) in giveing us 007. Pure Blasphemy!!!!!!!
  • I know you meant in the context of Thunderball but C'mon! Barry is a Legend.

    Are certain films coming back to theaters in 2012, or are we just blowing smoke here?

    It's just for fun. It wouldn't shock me if one did though, Goldfinger did a few years ago for one day only, in the UK...

    OHMSS, TLD, TB. Or the three Lewis Gilbert epics.

    FRWL for instance has not a widescreen format so I prefer to watch it on a small screen.
  • FRWL - I see that it would be appropriate to re-release DN in a limited run during the 50 year anniversary but I think that FRWL is the better film and would play better to audiences today (when I've seen DN in a theatre there are groans and "Whoa!"s of disapproval at "Fetch my shoes" and female friends of mine find Honey to come off as kind of stupid).

    OHMSS - I think that mainstream audiences would be pleased to "rediscover" this film as it's one that a lot of casual Bond fans I know have not seen. Everyone I've shown it to has had a reaction that ranged from really pleasantly surprised to absolutely loving it.

    CR - naturally, showing Craig's first film in preparation for his next. I can't see showing any Brosnan films as he was the last Bond and therefore some might consider him somewhat of competition to Craig (if that makes sense), especially given how different Craig's take is from Brosnan's.
