    Quantum being in 4th place doesn't mean it's a weak film. It's still in the upper half of Bond films as a whole.

    Everything Craig does, he's great at.

    Okay, Spectre is bottom tier. But it's like the very best film within that tier. haha

    Royale Quantum of Falling Spectres Dying...it's really just one long film with intermissions and changing musical interludes between the acts

    After my first full viewing from start to finish of NTTD since my one time seeing it in theaters. I was fully able to forgive the ending. I guess that's why I should have seen it more than just once.

    Not sure if you found this, but for me, the brevity of the "aftermath" of the ending really helps the rewatchability of the film.

    Exactly, once the shock factor of the ending (for those who experienced it) wears off, I think the film is excellent. I've watched the ending many times through YouTube clips just to soften the blow once I was able to allocate 3 hours to watch it.

    And the scene with the sunbeam hitting the glass of scotch and the Jack London quote by M was a beautiful scene. I'd have a painting of it.

    I don't know if I already wrote a post to this thread and didn't feel like checking it all. But at present, my personal preferences are as follows:

    1) SKYFALL - for the sheer enjoyment I felt when watching it at the cinema (two of them, at that) ten years ago.

    2) CASINO ROYALE - the worthy revival of the James Bond franchise.

    3) NO TIME TO DIE - a magnificent movie without major flaws, ending the Daniel Craig tenure and timeline. The end really being needed to start the franchise anew.

    You may juggle the succession of those three, and I'm fine with the outcome, since I might as well throw a dice as well.

    4)/5) QUANTUM OF SOLACE... or SPECTRE...or both...there is so much wrong with both of them. QOS suffers mainly from its editing (I'm sure I've said THAT before!), while I still can stand that foster brother narrative at the core of SP. Either way, within this thread (Top DC movies), they are badly beaten by the other three for me.

    Well, why not go ahead and buy it if it's an online sale offer...? Not saying I would wish to do it myself.

    I have nowhere to put it. All my rooms in my house are either children's bedrooms or common areas. My next house I will have a den/mancave for my sports memorabilia and stuff like this. I have an LTK poster somewhere in a closet

    1 SF
    2 CR
    3 NTTD
    4 SP (I have warmed to this film a lot since seeing NTTD)
    5 QoS*

    * does not mean I do not like QoS. I love it. But 100 minutes is just too short. I don't mind NTTD and SP being long Bond films...If I am paying $20+ (American) for a movie ticket, I want several hours of Bond.

    Another viewpoint is that it is one, long, continuous and connected movie. Like LOTR, or a long-form TV production, such that

    1) Skyfall
    2) Casino Royale
    3) No Time To Die
    4) Quantum Of Solace
    5) Spectre

    Even after time spent with No Time To Die this is still my ranking. Quantum of Solace and Spectre are still at the bottom for me as I feel there was wasted potential with both, with No Time To Die doing the best it could with what Spectre provided for it.

    I like your points but I actually disagree that NTTD did the best it could with what SP provided. NTTD could have righted the wrongs done to Blofeld, but IMO, it blundered him even harder than SP did.

    Sure, but I feel Waltz' Blofeld was so bland and uninspired, I can't really see any avenue that would've redeemed him. The damage was done you could say.

    I've said it around here before, but for me I really wanted to see Blofeld escape and kill Safin/take over at the Garden of Death, and return as Bond's main antagonist. For me that would have redeemed him 100%.

    1. 'Casino Royale.'.
    2. 'Quantum Of Solace.'.
    3. 'Spectre.'.
    4. 'Skyfall.'.
    5. 'No Time To Die.'.

    For me 1 & 2 are basically different parts of the same film, and 'No Time To Die.' is by far the worst Daniel Craig Bond film for a whole variety of reasons. In all honesty I think it's shockingly bad.
