    Keep in mind that I rank the films in order of enjoyment rather than trying to be objective (otherwise I guess FRWL or CR or something would probably be top). Anyway, best

    Dr No
    From Russia With Love
    On Her Majesty's Secret Service
    The Spy Who Loved Me
    The Living Daylights
    Licence To Kill

    And worst

    Dr No
    Diamonds Are Forever
    The Man With The Golden Gun
    Die Another Day
    Quantum Of Solace

    Yeah I've never been as big a fan of DN as a lot of fans. It's not a bad film by any means, I just don't get the same level of enjoyment from watching it that I do the other Connery films (bar DAF).

    Well the worst list is considerably more interesting to do than the rather predictable best one!

    Best

    DN
    FRWL
    OHMSS

    Worst

    DN
    GF
    TB
    DAF
    TMWTGG
    DAD

    Have to say I'm worried some people dont understand the rules as there are numerous posts that dont have DAD last on the worst list.

    Nothing can compare to FRWL's awesomeness. Nothing is worse, IMO, than GG.

    I think DAF would eclipse even MWTGG as the worst and definitely shade the overbashed MR and even though I'm ambivalent toward OP and AVTAK and TND and TWINE nothing trumps my dislike of DAF until DAD. I'm almost happy to have DAD exist so that I can pinpoint a nadir of the Bond franchise. I remember the arguments before DAD - but it's definitely the most uniformally rallied behind as the bottom of the barrel.

    @Walecs and @OHMSS69 , I think you miss the idea behind this exercise. I suggest going back to the original post. It's a chronological jump, with your worst and best being replaced as we go forward in time. Therefore both lists begin with DN by necessity.

    @DarthDimi you don't like AVTAK? I never would have guessed. ;)

    I know, I amaze even myself, @DaltonCraig007. Must be the steroids. Or the microchips. Or my shares. Or the KGB. Or flooding Sillicon Valley. I'm confused.

  • Some people aren't playing it correctly. Dr. No has to be in both lists (which every does correctly), but then FRWL has to show up in either the best or worst list, as it becomes the default alternative option.

    DN>FRWL then:
    Best: DN, ...
    Worst: DN, FRWL, ;;;

    DN<FRWL, then:
    Best: DN, FRWL, ...
    Worst: DN, ...

    For me,
    Best: DN, FRWL, GF, OHMSS, CR
    Worst: DN, YOLT, DAD (Sorry YOLT is just a bore for me)
