Neums: Silva actually referred to M as "Mommy" though.
Gyrfalcon: docmattic: Tthe Bond actor who you grew up with becomes, de facto, your definitive Bond.Discuss.I would have said that, till I saw Craig. I have to say he's closer to the books than Connery ever was.I think my panties are still wet after seeing "Skyfall."
chewielouie: Dalton's best performance was in The Rocketeer.
Bobby_and_The_Gorilla: Barbara Bach (Agent XXX) was the best Bond girl ever. Nope sorry, not debatable, no discussion, she was the best, LALALALALALALALALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU!
sephjnr: One minor thing about Brosnan though: Bond's supposed to be fluent in most common languages yet he doesn't bother / can't do accents
Falco09: It made absolutely zero sense for this car to be in the movie. There's only one James Bond; Sean Connery's Bond doesn't exist in the Daniel Craig Bond universe.
Mugato: sephjnr: One minor thing about Brosnan though: Bond's supposed to be fluent in most common languages yet he doesn't bother / can't do accentsHe did Russian.
BronyMedic: Falco09: It made absolutely zero sense for this car to be in the movie. There's only one James Bond; Sean Connery's Bond doesn't exist in the Daniel Craig Bond universe.Think long and hard about it. Notice how at the end of the movie, someone is called M despite another M dying.Fridge Logic.
DjangoStonereaver: yves0010: DjangoStonereaver: BillCo: Sean Connery is the best bond ever. This is not arguable.You've obviously not seen any of the Craig movies, or read any of the books.Im in agreement with BillCo on this one and I am an obsessed Bond Fan. I think the list is:1) Connery2) Craig3) Moore4) Brosnan (Lost a lot of points for Die Another Day)5) Lazenby6) DaltonMy list is something like this:1> Craig*1.1> Connery*2> Brosnan3> Moore**4> Dalton***5> David Niven6> Peter Sellars****7> Lazenby****** I rate Craig higher than Connery, but only by a hair; it is really not a fair comparisonsince they approached the part from very different places, and with very different guiding principles.** Mostly on the strength of his performance in FOR YOUR EYES ONLY, which redeemedmuch in my eyes, for all his silliness.*** I'd rate him higher if he'd had one more movie, or if either of his 2 movies were betterscripted; his performance itself was damn good, but you can only seperate the performance from thescript so much.****I am of the heretical opinion that, had he been given the chance, Sellars would havemade an excellent James Bond.***** Lazenby is a favourite of many so-called 'Bond Purists', but for every flash ofbrilliance (brutal fight scenes, his emotion at Tracy's killing), he undercuts it by being very flippant,to the point that I strongly feel that his take on the character strongly pre-figures Moore's over-the-topsilliness to a very great degree.
under a mountain: Get ready to stone me, but I'm a Dalton fan.
scottydoesntknow: Goldeneye was badass, because it was still about Bond. He fought, he got his ass kicked, and he still succeeded. Every one after that (in the Brosnan era) was more about the technology that Bond and the bad guys carried (invisible car...WTF?!)Casino Royale was amazing. It brought Bond back to the real world. It showed him getting tortured (the rope scene made me cringe), and still coming out of it looking badass.QoS was Bond in name only. It was a revenge flick, not a spy flick and had a terrible plot/bad guy motivation to boot.
FriarReb98: I don't like trying to order *all* of the movies, mostly because the actors all differently. The only things I will say are:1. Connery, being the originator, ALWAYS gets a pass.2. Lazenby has some issues, but he wasn't as bad as people make it out to be. (Example: the non-reaction to getting found out by Blofeld just seems like something he wouldn't normally do.)3. Moore, for all intents and purposes, had some really good and really horrid parts to most of his movies. The space scene of Moonraker trumps all for stupidity and pandering to what's popular at the time, though, and the AFB circus scene where James Bond dresses up as a clown will always be the absolute nadir. The flip side to that is that he went up against Lee and Walken, two of the greatest Bond villains ever, and his movies are still mostly based off of original Fleming material.4. Dalton... again with the bipolar. The Living Daylights wasn't bad until he (a) joins the Mujahideen, and (b) kills Joe Don Baker in his war room. And License to Kill was too much of a James Bond does Miami Vice movie (plus, FFS, Wayne Newton?!).5. Brosnan was good, probably my second favorite, but on most days I'll say that his movies went downhill until the crash landing into complete implausibility that was Die Another Day. (The "most days" part is that I go back & forth between the two middle movies, mostly dependent on how much I can stomach Paris Carver at any given time.)6. Craig was incredible in Casino Royale, but as stated a million places in a million ways, Quantum sucked extreme donkey balls. I've yet to see Skyfall so I can't comment on that, but if it's as good as advertised, then he's into a tie with Pierce for my favorite Bond not named Sean Connery.That's where I stand on all of that.
scottydoesntknow: Lego_Addict: Goldeneye will always be my #1 because of the N64 game. Nick Nack and Proximity Mines FTW!No Oddjob!!!!
Shakin_Haitian: scottydoesntknow: Lego_Addict: Goldeneye will always be my #1 because of the N64 game. Nick Nack and Proximity Mines FTW!No Oddjob!!!!We actively encouraged people to play Oddjob because his head was pretty much at the default level for the crosshairs. Pretty much a constant headshot.Jaws, on the other hand, was a farking cheat character. He headshot everyone else and you had to aim skyhigh to hit him in the head.

He was the one we all banned from play.
Fano: expobill: Roger Moore's James Bond was what the 70's and 80's demanded in action films, and were the very popular then. Bond movies are made from their era.Roger Moore = Bill Shatner.Is this what people expected in the 70s?A perfect, awesome stunt ruined by a SLIDE WHISTLE. And why the fat southern sheriff hanging out with Bond? Screw that guy.I think Austin Powers pretty much was making fun of the Moore era.
