Casino Royale was on the very rare films in the series that managed to balance the action, the humour, the drama and the Fleming source material while also appealing to the audience, would I have preferred From Russia With Love or Goldfinger to be the top? Of course! Does that mean I am disappointed that Casino Royale won? Not at all, as you will probably find most Bond fans young and old will rank it as among the best in the series even if they would not consider it to be their favourite
I never expect to see anything of Moore or Dalton as high as 3rd place, although it would be nice to see. At least TSWLM and TLD managed to rank fairly well. Refreshing to see DAD out of last place, however I wouldn't have let it go to MR which I believe belongs higher up on the list. Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
I disagree, my grandfather has loved Bond since the 50s and he thinks CR is one of the best films and Craig one of the best Bonds. My grandmother loves Craig as well and she used to watch Connery's films religiously when they were released.
Nice to see Dalton making the top 10.
If "new generation" has everything to do with the result then we should have seen more Brosnan's movies, it's not the case so...
So how do you explain the low ranking of QOS? If film quality isn't the 'thing' and Daniel is, then surely QOS would come in at No 2?
I'm surprised by the low ranking of OP, otherwise nothing too outrageous.
I agree with what @maxcraig says; if "new fans" skewed the results then Brosnan's films should have rounded out the top 5 after CR. Nice to see GE up there, it's a big fave of mine as well.
It says 'people who had the film in their top 5'. Does this mean positioning within that top 5 is irrelevant?
Therefore you could have 10 Sean fans voting FRWL first, 10 Rog fans voting TSWLM first, 10 Brozza fans voting GE first but because 5 out of each group have CR scrape in at number 5 that equates to 15 appearances for CR but only 10 for the rest?
I'm not devastated that CR is number one as I would certainly have it top 3 but a clear 20% over FRWL and 30% over OHMSS - youre having a laugh.
And GF 2nd? This is supposed to be a fans survey not one of those bullshit polls in the Radio Times. I dont know anyone on these forums who rates GF particularly highly at all. I think most respect it for its iconic elements and what it did to cement Bondmania but the amount of times I hear people complaining its dull and Bond spends half the film sitting around captured.
A top 3 of FRWL, OHMSS and CR in any order and I dont think there could be many arguments but GF is way too high.
Great work to MI6 for compiling this list as you did.
Yes, number one is very strange indeed though alas that's life.
Moore seems to have taken a bit of a hit. Poor old MR! Although Spy and FYEO (another surprise) are at the upper end...
Look at Living Daylights!
GE seems a little high for me although, despite the silly skydive into the plane at the beginning, it is a good movie and is ageing really well.
Still, 15000 votes? Seems a healthy top 5 all said and done
I agree. TSWLM is a much better film than GE. I need to organise my list of best Bond films...
