    But as with Craig films they're very close.

    I like LTK but that scene where the female companion gets to kick all the arse, while "chauffeur" Bond gets the boat ready, always sticks in my craw...

    Plus they underuse henchman Benicio Del Toro and the destruction of the very interesting looking villains lair seems rushed

    Del Toro is one I would love to see return to the series in a larger role. He could play the main villain even sometime in the next Bond’s run. He certainly fits the bill for Oscar winner!

    He's got enough mileage on him now to graduate from henchman to main villain, these days he would have been in the Robert Davi role in LTK

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

    Having watched NTTD for a fourth time I am ready to oficially rank it ahead of Skyfall. That in itself is quite significant and unexpected!

    I can see you are a man of exquisite taste.

    QOS and SF are a bit of a coin toss for me; I think SF is certainly a better made film, but I find it a touch boring. QOS, for it's flaws, is exciting I think, has brilliant action sequences, and is franchise-best for Bond casual-wear fashion. Love them both.

    NTTD and Skyfall are a tossup for me.

    Would like to see a page asking to rank all 25 - seems like that would generate some conversation and god knows we've got time before another movie comes along.

    Good point, @NickTwentyTwo. I'd even go so far as to say that Craig is best dressed in QOS. And yes, the film suffers from a troubled production history but did the best it could. It's an imperfect but incredibly enjoyable film.

    I agree that LTK's villain's lair is very interesting; some more action there would have been nice.

    New ranking based on seeing NTTD 3 times

    1. CR - I can’t see any bond film ever topping this. It has class style and chemistry between the leads to die for. Best scene - the train or the shower.

    2. Skyfall - classic scene after classic scene that makes the film greater than the sun of its parts. Best scene - severine in the casino or introduction of silva

    3. NTTD - deeply flawed ending but two and a half hours of classic bond. Best scene - matera.

    4. Spectre - class first hour with a messy boring final act. Best scene - mr white.

    5. Qos. - visually and narratively incoherent action stuffed mess. Completely lacking in charisma. Best scene - Tosca

    Those two are hard to beat, but I would add the denouement at MI6 to mine (how did we go from there to where we are in two films!?!).

    Oh absolutely! I ask that question often.

    And yes, the casino scene in SF (shaving scene included) may be my favourite scene of all the brilliant DC tenure.

    Hey guys long time not being here meanwhile bond was on hold I got hooked into the MCU and tv series House MD.
    Those were my obsessions while Bond was kind of on hold. But now that The original 6 Avengers are out and watched No time to die. My bond love came back.

    Anyway here my ranking of the Daniel Craig films

    1 Casino Royale
    2 Skyfall
    3 Spectre
    4 Quantum of Solace
    5 No time to die.

    5. Spectre

    I really wonder how I’ll feel about the Sam Mendes duology as time goes on. Despite being a direct sequel to Spectre and being so heavily intertwined with it, NTTD really felt like a more of continuation of Craig’s Bond portrayal in CR and QoS rather than the his more stoic take in SF and SP.

    Lol, sorry, but I just watched LTK again the other night and I'm going to flip flop back the other way and vote LTK ahead of TLD now

    Somehow the things I criticised it for before didn't seem so bad this time around, and now my only real dislike is the truck wheelie though the fire near the end (IMO a very Rog moment)

    Also Cary Suzuki should have been used more, but sadly that's the story of his whole career...

    1. CR - intense, atmospheric & best writing since 60's. Bond & Vesper hands down best chemistry of the series
    2. QoS - other than being short on dialogue and buildup it's highly underrated
    3. NTTD - with a little less melodrama could have been 1st
    4. SP - UTTERLY DAFT in most respects. But still had fun watching it.
    5. SF - too solemn, too self serious, too overhyped. Still decent though.

    Love this ranking. Skyfall is like the Mona Lisa; you know it’s well made and art or whatever, but once you’ve seen it you’ve seen it. ;)

    Having watched NTTD twice now:

    1. Casino Royale
    2. Skyfall
    3. No Time to Die
    4. Quantum of Solace
    5. Spectre


    I'm very confident about #1, #2, and #5 staying as they are. Even though they are drastically different and have different strengths/weaknesses, I find NTTD and QOS extremely close in quality, and they do have the potential to switch at any time, but for now I'm giving the edge to the new one.
