Top 10 SCENES in Bond movies

edited September 2014 in Bond Movies Posts: 1
Everyone always discusses what their favorite Bond movies are, I want to know what people's favorite scenes are. Great moments exist in all the films, so without prejudice against the dumb moments which might ruin some of the movies as a whole, what do folks feel are the 10 best scenes throughout all the Bond films?

    I can't really put these in an actual order 1-10, but these would be my ten favorite scenes from the Bond films:

    -Pushkin's interrogation in The Living Daylights
    -"Watch the birdy you..." from Licence to Kill
    -Tosca from Quantum of Solace
    -The quarry scene from Quantum of Solace
    -The final scene of Licence to Kill (and yes, I realize I'm the only one that likes it)
    -Casino Royale's PTS
    -Bond leaves Greene to die in the desert in Quantum of Solace
    -Bond kicks Locque off the cliff in For Your Eyes Only
    -Bond confronts Yusef in Quantum of Solace
    -Bond vs. Grant in From Russia With Love

    No particular order here, but... By the way, a lot of these are listed as quotes, they represent the entire scene.

    1) CR PTS
    2) CR M's apartment scene
    3) "It's time to get out."
    4) "No more foreplay."
    5) "I'm looking for a submarine. It's big and black, and the driver is a very good friend of mine."
    6) Q's lab, GF
    7) Carver's introduction, TND
    8) "I think you people need a new place to meet."
    9) "His name's Jaws, he kills people!"
    10) "Bond, James Bond", any film

    1- Bond, James Bond (Dr No)
    2- Killing the professor (Dr No)
    3- The visit and fight at the gypsy camp (FRWL)
    4- PTS of Goldfinger, how shocking (GF)
    5- Could you pass me some clothing (TB)
    6- Bond on the run during the carnival (TB)
    7- The fight on the Piz Gloria (OHMSS)
    8- The escape on ski (OHMSS)
    9- the boat chase (LALD)
    10- The parachute jump (TSWLM)

    that is me only halfway. but nr. one is a major point in cinema history, and has never been bettered by any Bond actor.

    Are you seriously saying that 4 out of 10 of the best scenes in the entire canon come from QOS? And one of the others features the winking fish?

    Really?

    I'm not a total QOS hater old son but really - 40% of the best of a 23 film series is to be found in 100 minutes of an appallingly edited film with a half written script?

    I can't really put these in an actual order 1-10, but these would be my ten favorite scenes from the Bond films:

    -Pushkin's interrogation in The Living Daylights
    -"Watch the birdy you..." from Licence to Kill
    -Tosca from Quantum of Solace
    -The quarry scene from Quantum of Solace
    -The final scene of Licence to Kill (and yes, I realize I'm the only one that likes it)
    -Casino Royale's PTS
    -Bond leaves Greene to die in the desert in Quantum of Solace
    -Bond kicks Locque off the cliff in For Your Eyes Only
    -Bond confronts Yusef in Quantum of Solace
    -Bond vs. Grant in From Russia With Love

    Are you seriously saying that 4 out of 10 of the best scenes in the entire canon come from QOS? And one of the others features the winking fish?

    Really?

    I'm all for the QoS love, Wiz luv. ;)

    I'm not a total QOS hater old son but really - 40% of the best of a 23 film series is to be found in 100 minutes of an appallingly edited film with a half written script?

    Oh yes, I see your point of course that the QoS love here was more than a tad excessive. I've not gone totally off my rocker, except for the NSF stuff of course!

    None for Connery? What the hell, his tenure was full of grand moments!

    Maybe he's playing like I did- citing almost exclusively his favourite actor scenes...
  • Posts: 11,084
    @Agent007391 True that. Even though it's my third favorite of his movies, the train fight in FRWL is probably my second favorite moment AFTER his DN introduction. That scene always comes to mind when I think of the series' best fights.

    If I had to rank only ten, Connery probably wouldn't cut the list for me either. There are too many excellent scenes in the Moore and Dalton films and OHMSS.

    I must say picking only 10 does make it rather difficult. Out of 23 films, and hundreds of scenes naming only 10 is a stretch. However the ten I have picked are a selection of those that I feel worthy of a mention. In no particular order...

    10. The backgammon game in OP - It's Bond getting right in the face of the villain. Letting the villain know that he is on his case, and then using the villains cheat against him. Double sixes. Fancy that.

    9. The keel hauling scene in FYEO - Taken straight from Fleming's LALD novel. Thrilling, dangerous and beautifully shot. I love the shot of the sharks tail as Bond and Melina narrowly miss it. Also having Bond to think fast without the use of a gadget earns this a place on my ten.

    8. Bond finds Felix after he disagreed with something that ate him in LTK - Another instance of the film makers going back to Fleming. Timothy Daltons acting here is fantastic. A full range of emotions in a near silent scene. Rage and helplessness as he finds his friend horribly maimed. Not a good news for the people responsible.
    7. Bond interrogates Pushkin TLD- It's another piece of fine acting from Dalton and also John Rhys Davies. Bond thinks Koskov is up to no good. But as long as Pushkin is alive, they wont know his scheme. The line "If I trusted Koskov, we wouldn't be talking", and the way in which he makes Pushkin get on his knees, with his hands behind his back gives an insight into Bonds role as a paid assassin.

    6. Bond finds Vesper in the shower CR - It's an eye-opener for Bond as he finds a traumatised, fully clothed Vesper in the shower. The realisation that he's brought someone into his world as an assassin and the way he comforts her, with a fine score from David Arnold make this a powerful scene imo.

    5. Bond visits Q branch and gets a DB5 GF - It might seem like a strange scene to include, but I love this scene. An un-interested Bond is given his first supercar of the series in the form of an Aston Martin DB5...with modifications. Connery and Desmond Llewellyn are wonderful in this scene. The infamous line regarding the ejector seat and not joking about his work would remain a beloved character trait between the two characters for decades to follow.

    4. Bond ski's off the edge TSWLM - It might not be my favourite stunt, although it's right up there. But the PTS of Spy and in particular the moment Bond who is being chased by KGB hitmen, ski's off the edge of the mountain is breathtaking. The audience doesn't know he's wearing a parachute. The music builds, the camera angle perfectly display the scale of the scene, and then the parachute opens, complete with not only the Bond theme, but a Union Jack chute. Nobody does it better. No really.
    3. Bond and Tracy's marriage is cut short OHMSS - Somehow we should know that Bond cannot stay a married man for long. On the first viewing this scene takes you by surprise, and if you're like me, you got caught up in the full emotion of the scene. For anyone who says George Lazenby can't act. Take another look at this scene.
    2. Bond kills Professor Dent DN - It's ruthless. It's murder and it's brutal. But Bond is a spy with a licence to kill. He's a government assassin. Kill or be killed. In this case, Dent's attempt failed and it cost him.
    1. Bond, James Bond in DN - It might seem an obvious choice, but the introduction of our favourite Spy is nothing short of brilliant. The casino environment, the high stakes game of chemin de fer, the subtle shots of Bond whilst not revealing his face. And then he lights a cigarette and utters for the first time the immortal line. Connery's face in full screen. Prefection.

    There are plenty I could include, but as I said, these a few that spring to mind.

    Can't believe nobody has mentioned the scene in which they put Fort Knox asleep in GF yet.

    The issue for me is like, it's not even that my top ten are all from specific actors, they're from specific films! The Living Daylights has four, Casino Royale has three, OHMSS has one and LTK and TSWLM each have one.

    Positively shocking - the ninja fight from LTK better than Bond v Grant? Dear oh dear. =))
