groppet: So I know Thunderball and Never Say Never Again have the same plot but why isnt Never Say Never on the list?
I_C_Weener: Okay, aside from Madonna and a white North Korean and a sun laser thing and an invisible car (Wonder Woman's I think) what was so bad about Die Another Day?
FeedTheCollapse: as an aside, I always hated the title "Goldeneye." It felt like a half-ass title made up because it sounded like a James Bond title; that further annoys me because it also sounds too much like Goldfinger.
Sybarite: Dalton is probably the only Bond I never have the urge to rewatch when I run across one of this films playing on TV. I find his portrayal so boring.
Jim_Callahan: DjangoStonereaver: Craig's signed for 2 more movies; so far he's 2 for 1, and that's a damn good batting average.Yeah, I'm not saying he's bad at it or anything, it just took him until the third movie to really figure out who Bond is and start actually playing the character and making it his own instead of looking slightly puzzled whenever asked to do one of the silly mannerisms.As of Skyfall, Craig's Bond is meaner than most of the others, but he's actually found the groove and I'll keep watching the movies. The bit where he shows real emotion for the first time in three movies over the car was pretty much what convinced me he finally gets it. And he can finally do the one-liners without it seeming like he's reading them off a script. Some of this is his direction, I'm sure, but it helps to have the actor on board, too.
Falco09: If I'm not mistaken, Goldeneye was the name of Fleming's Jamaican estate. It was a way for the writers to pay homage to the author after they ran out of actual Bond titles.
Mugato: edip1976: Craig certainly returned some of the humor to the roleHe did? I found the movie rather dour and humorless. Very... British. Not that that's bad, it just didn't have the levity that Bond movies usually have. Which is not a criticism, previous Bond movies could get goofy at times but I guess I just miss the fun that the Brosnan ones had.
Debeo Summa Credo: Is it necessary or advisable for me to see QoS before watching Skyfall? Or can I just skip QoS?
cgraves67: I'm going to be thoroughly drubbed for this, but I like Dalton the best followed by Craig and then Connery. Moore is too much a wiseass and Brosnan is a modern Moore. Lazenby...forgettable.
BronyMedic: Uh, okay. I'll say it.SKYFALL made me need new pants as a life-long Bond movie fan. All of the mytharc callbacks, and half-answered lore teasers (Including the hint that the "people" are truely different people, despite all being the same name and designators) were awesome.And the old Aston Marton with the ejector seat? Wonderful.

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.
