    And Martine Beswick.

    My wife isn't going to be pleased but I'm thinking I'll re-watch the whole series. That James Bond mood grabs me every few years.

    Would there be any interest in a Bond film-by-film thread?

    OHMSS is a really unorthodox movie, most of it taking place in that space chalet. Really out of character for this franchise, though I enjoyed it.

    Have you seen the Bond documentary - Everything or Nothing?

    Pretty eye opening - esp for OHMSS and how George Lazenby pulled off getting the role.

    And why he lost the role.

    Very very close for me between Casino Royale and Goldfinger, I think those 2 are ahead of the chasing pack.

    At the moment I would have to go with Casino Royale, a stunning debut for Mr Craig.

    Moonraker is so amazing - extremely underrated!

    It's a tough question, but it's between Goldfinger, From Russia With Love, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, The Spy Who Loved Me, Casino Royal and Spectre. I ended up choosing The Spy Who Loved me, but tomorrow it could be any one of the other 5.

    Moonraker! My mother took me to see that, we were poor and seldom did that stuff ( my siblings took me), haven’t seen mom since I was twelve but that’s not the reason, the reason was I was blown away by the epic nature of the movie in my young eyes and the badassness of bond. jaws! Forget about it I was hooked. Moore was my bond as a child

    DC:CR out of the equation.
    Happily accept 1960s/70s James Bond films as preference.
    3 Sean : Bond's
    1 Roger
    1 George

    The only one I ever liked was License To Kill. Timothy Dalton was the only James Bond I ever liked. Then again I don't consider myself a big fan. My parents loved them so I ended up seeing most of them at one time or another.

    The first Bond film I ever saw (in fact the first film I ever saw at a cinema) was Live And Let Die in 1973. So, Roger Moore was the first 'Bond' I ever saw. However, the best Bond for me is Connery and those early films up until Diamonds Are Forever (including the Lazenby On Her Majesty's......) are the high watermark of the Bond cannon. I think my favourite has to be From Russia With Love, it's quite Hitchcockian and seems slightly removed and darker than the rest in the series. And the fight on the train with Robert Shaw is classic Bond.

    Hard to pick between Dr. No and Goldfinger for me. I think Goldfinger is a better movie and probably the best of the Sean Connery series, but Dr. No is just so much fun to watch and of course there's Ursula. Those early movies captured Bond's ruthlessness and complex misogyny that were very much a part of his character in the books. I think Daniel Craig is the first Bond since to tap into that darker aspect of the character.

    Gotta go with Goldfinger. The franchise wasn’t exhausted yet and it has all the elements of a real Bond movie.

    Plus Sean Connery was in it, the real Bond to those of us who can remember when the original films were first released.

    None of them....

    But that's only because I've never seen any James Bond movies before. :shrug:
