    I'm 27 been a fan since the age of 5 in 1990. My first Bond movie experience was seeing Roger Moore with Soliatire tied up above a shark-infested pool.

    Anyway, my top 5

    FRWL
    TB
    OHMSS
    SF
    CR

    Not in my top ten, currently barely in top twenty. This may change on further viewings.

    I wouldn't bet on it. If you have SF so far down on your rankings, I'm guessing DAD is No.1 on your favourite list?

    Not quite, DAD and SF are pretty much the same kind of movie in my opinion. FRWL, OHMSS, TB Are my favourite bond films.

    Been thinking about SF and come to the conclusion i can only accept it if i dismiss every film that predated CR. I love CR though with that movie they are pretty much starting from the beginning and reimagining bonds cinema history, much in the same way Star trek has.

    There is not much difference between Matt smiths doctor who referencing something from what is considered the old who, and a reference in SF Referencing 'old' bond.

    so my list would be as follows...

    top three old bond in no particular order.

    TB, FRWL, OHMSS

    top three new bond, post reimagining.

    QoS, CR, SF

    oh good lord.... i get that people have different tastes and what not - but what is the redeeming value of that pile of crap that a couple people would rate it as their favorite, and in their opinion the best Bond movie ever.. what are they watching / seeing that thousands (if not millions) of others haven't? lol

    He never said DAD was his favourite, the other guy just stupidly assumed he did because he didn't like SF.
    It was actually a joke, and I would rather you refer to me in name than `the other guy.'

    And less of the stupid too, while we are at it.

    in the sense they both reference the hell out of the series and are tribute films.

    Other than the occassional nod to the franchise, they are light years apart.
  • My current top 10 are;

    1. Skyfall
    2. Casino Royale
    3. Quantum of Solace
    4. The Living Daylights
    5. From Russia With Love
    6. On Her Majesty's Secret Service
    7. License To Kill

    10-15'ish on my list.
  • Top 10

    Always fun to do these lists, since there are always minor changes. From Russia With Love changes places with Dr.No. Found From Russia quite slow and boring (until the train sequences) last time I watched it and Dr.No a lot of fun, really like that script.

    Skyfall on #7. All the really good reviews got my overhyped, Enjoyed it but was a bit dissapointed overal. Especially the Scotland part which fell totally out of place. Also wasn't impressed with the bond girls. Intro, London, Shanghai, Macau, Craig, Jardem, Fienes are the good things.

    1.Thunderball
    2.Goldeneye
    3.Casino Royale
    4.Dr.No
    5.You Only Live Twice
    6.Goldfinger
    7.Skyfall
    8.From Russia With Love
    9.The Spy Who Loved Me
    10. On Her Majesty's Secret Service
  • After seeing SF three times so far, my current ranking is as follows (top 10 only):

    1. On Her Majesty's Secret Service
    2. From Russia With Love
    3. Casino Royale
    4. SkyFall
    5. Licence To Kill
    6. The Spy Who Loved Me
    7. Goldfinger
    8. Thunderball
    9. For Your Eyes Only
    10. The Living Daylights
  • Bond movie ranking updated for Skyfall


    1. You Only Live Twice
    2. From Russia With Love
    3. Casino Royale
    4. Skyfall
    5. Goldfinger
    6. Thunderball
    7. The Spy Who Loved Me
    8. The Living Daylights
    9. For Your Eyes Only
    10. Goldeneye
    11. The Man With The Golden Gun
    12. Dr. No
    13. Quantum Of Solace
    14. Octopussy
    15. Live and Let Die
    16. On Her Majesty's Secret Service
    17. A View To a Kill
    18. The World Is Not Enough
    19. License To Kill
    20. Tomorrow Never Dies
    21. Moonraker
    22. Diamonds Are Forever
    23. Die Another Day

    I guess some of these are ties or could be shuffled around a bit. Yes License To Kill is ranked low. I think TD is a great Bond but the production suffers from a lack of exoticism and England. It seems like Miami Vice. Benecio DelToro is great of course. I love Renard and Garbage in TWINE but the snow sequence and Denise Richards offer nothing to get excited about. That and Brosnan never quite had the gravitas to me. He seems like he's plaing Bond rather than being Bond. The Brosnan era offered too few surprises and were overly formulaic and enamored with techno nonsense and product placement. GE ranks high because of the PTS and good overall storytelling. And Zenia Onatop of course.

    Its number 1 on my list with Casinor royale number 2. Craig's Bond really has given the Bond Franchise a royal good kicking in the backside. I've seen Skyfall 6 times and it gets better and better.
  • I'm 18 years old, seen all the films, read all the IF books. Here's my top ten:
    1. Goldfinger
    2. From Russia With Love
    3. The Living Daylights
    4. Licence to Kill
    5. Casino Royale/Skyfall (tie; I can't decide which is better)
    6. The Spy Who Loved Me
    7. Live and Let Die
    8. GoldenEye
    9. Tomorrow Never Dies
    10. On Her Majesty's Secret Service

    SF would sit somewhere around mid table, maybe 13th, 14th.

    That's not a bad top 5 sir. I would swap LTK and TLD around but not bad at all. Shame like many you have to rate TB so high but no ones perfect.

    I'm right there with you with regard to Thunderball. I don't hold it in the same high regard as a lot of other people seem to.
