    DAF and OP are definitely here; not sure what the third would be at this moment.
    Tempting to put DAD, but honestly I think there is enough in there I like to keep it off the bottom 3.

    Skyfall

    If the non-EONS count, CR67 would take SF's place.

    NTTD is #5, but counted from the top.

    Lol, wow, a break from seeing DAF or DAD (I actually enjoy the space-laser duology).

    Yes, I am well aware of them, you Brosnan-hater, you. Admit it, you never saw him as anything more than Remington Steele in a tux... :))

    I remember watching that on streaming for the first time and thinking how GLAD I was that he didn’t simply play his Remington Steele persona!

    If I was a Bond fan in 1985 and heard about Brosnan being a favorite based on his TV show I would be utterly PERPLEXED. But then again, Roger Moore had the role for over a decade at that point, so I guess people saw Brosnan fitting that mold.

    Thankfully, it seemed he always intended to break that mold. THE FOURTH PROTOCOL and TAFFIN feel like Brosnan trying to break away from that RS perception audiences has of him. I’m not sure he would have persuaded EON to go darker as Dalton did in ‘86, but we’ll never know.

    For what it’s worth, I think he’s actually brilliant in DAD. So much so, I wish he was like that in his previous films.

    Are you trying to get a virtual fist-bump or hug out of me? Because you're close.

    I don't do many lists or rankings. The tops and bottoms are pretty clear, it's the middle that is so fluid for me.

    Bottom (counting NSNA)

    NSNA

    AVTAK




    TWINE (still dead last)
    If only counting Eon films, it would take some pondering.

    Brosnan as Bond nominations started practically from the time RS hit the air in '82. US Magazine did a poll in fall of '83 when NSNA came out and Moore was rumored to retire and he overwhelmingly won it. I do think the Moore influence was what made him such a strong candidate.

    I also like his DAD performance. It gets lost in all the other madness of that film. Then again, anything would've looked better than how he came out in TWINE
  • These haven't changed for me in a very long time::

    NSNA is not considered in the 25 to date, but is still trash.

    None is truly terrible though.

    If we include non-Eon then that’s easy, because we just add them right at the bottom

    26. NSNA
    27. CR 67

    This is actually incredibly easy for me, I don't think there's much of a gap at all between these three films - they're all turds - and there's even a significant step up from these three and my #22 entry.
