    I couldn't even begin to rank these, but here are things that annoy me to no end:

    *Stacey's constant yelling of "JAMES! JAMES! JAMES!"

    *Tiffany Case in anything, the stupid broad

    *Jinx in ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    *Kananga blows up

    *Lazenby's dubbing and the poor syncing with his lips

    *Bond is tortured for over a year and yet he goes back to Super-Bond the moment he is released with no damages done to his mind or body

    *Sound effects ruining moments of great drama

    Now, I do at times feel sorry for how much of an arse Bond is to Goodnight, but I agree: she is annoying as the day is long. I am supposed to believe that she is a competent and trusted agent in MI6? Hard to believe when she screws so much up and causes extra work for Bond.

    5) DBS It's a good looking car but my least favourite of the bunch.

    4) V8 VV Also a very good looking car but not quite as sexy as I like my cars.

    3) Vanquish Exceptionally good looking car to say the least. Very sexy and a beautiful model overall. But the OTT gizmo's in DAD kind of spoil the fun.

    2) DB5 A classic. Like Marilyn Monroe, a timelessly charming piece of art. Works as good today as it did in '64. 50 Years of age, yet not a day overdue. This car is legendary. Beauty on wheels.

    1) DBS 12 I'll be frank. I respect the DB5 more but I'm sold on this hot stuff. What I mean is, I worship Marilyn but I'll do anything for a one night stand with the local winner of a beauty pageant. It may not forever remain the hot diamond it is today, but for the time being, I drool upon its mere sight.

    1) Volante. Beefy, stylish and cool.

    2) DB5. Still holds up surprisingly well today.

    3) Vanquish. Slick, stylish and sexy.

    4) DBS 12. Looks good but by this point I was getting bored of the AM's, mainly because all their more recent designs look too similar for my taste.

    5) DBS. Nice car but a bit forgettable imo.

    Ooh, this one will be fun.

    1. DBS V12 - Sweet design. Front end-wise, it's like someone pulled back the skin on the DB5's face to get this sleek look.
    2. Vantage/Volante - Aston's muscle car. I really want to see a return of this- the sooner the better.
    3. DB5 - The classic. What's there to say? It's had a bit of screen time recently- let's hope it's destruction in SF is a sign that it won't return for at least a few films, making it welcome once again when it does return.
    4. Vanquish - A smoother, less detailed design than the DBS V12. Very nice... when it's visible. ;)
    5. DBS original - Last but definitely not least. Lovely looking car. It only got a bit of screen time either end of OHMSS, but was memorable nonetheless. I also welcome it's return.

    1. DBS12 - It's one of the most beautiful cars in the entire world IMO
    2. DB5 - Although it's a classic and very good looking car, it is still a bit overrated
    3. DBS - A pretty sleek car, nothing to much or nothing to little either
    4. Vanquish - This car do not have the sleek lines of the later DB9/DBS but overall it is a nice car. Except the invisible option.
    5. Volante - I've never really liked this car, it looks to bland and too much like an family car. Just like the BMW in TND.
