    1. CASINO ROYALE / GOLDENEYE
    3. SKYFALL
    4. TOMORROW NEVER DIES
    5. SPECTRE / DIE ANOTHER DAY
    7. QUANTUM OF SOLACE / THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH


    4, 5, and 6 are pretty even, and occasionally could shift around. The top 3 and bottom 2 are pretty inflexible at this point.

  • This forum really does value QoS quite highly. These "mini rankings" make that more visible as opposed to digging through lists of all 24.

    Interesting how things move in waves (for example, I'm a member on a nother forum in which Qos is universally derided).

    1. CR (by a distance)
    2. SF (a classy entry)
    3. GE (best Brozza film although strangely his worst performance)
    4. SP (despite everything it's still a very slick package)
    5. QOS (by a whisker from SP. Certainly getting better with age)
    6. TND (last 20 minutes of mindless shooting aside its tremendous fun)
    7. TWINE (rather ponderous and melodramatic)
    8. DAD (there's nothing that can be said here really is there)

    Despite having a lot of (justified) criticisms of the Babs and MGW era when you compare their output to Cubby's 7 lone films for me only OP (for sheer entertainment) and TLD would break into the top 5 above.

    They have made mistakes for sure but also done well to keep the franchise in pretty good health - all the more so given the dearth of Fleming material available to them and their deranged insistence on refusing to bin P&W.

    1. CR (definitive)
    2. SF (different and yet a very memorable and interesting film. Admirable effort)
    3. GE (great fun. It's dated aesthetically for me, but the performances are so much fun)
    4. QoS (editing kills it. I wish it were longer. When it's good, it's really good)
    5. TND (very slick - if it had more glamour /romance and less action I'd rank it higher)
    6. SP (only because the ending is truly awful - I can live with brother)
    7. DAD (much more fun to watch than it is to critique. Turn your brain off)
    8. TWINE (I have nothing positive to say here really. At all).

    1. CR – by a distance
    2. TWINE - @TheWiz was right when he described the film as rather ponderous and melodramatic. Yet I can't help but love it.
    3/4. SP/SF – honestly I can't separate them.
    5. QoS
    6. TND
    7. GE
    8. DAD

    CR is a solid top ten entry. SF flirts around my top ten. TND and GE are middle of the pack entries. SP-DAD are amongst my least favourite entries. Overall, I much prefer classic Bond.
