Roger Moore, Octopussy is an excellent one.

On another note, Timothy Dalton was the worst one.

George Lazenby - On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Lazenby was the most Flemingesque Bond.

But can George say “Pushhy Galore” with conviction like Sean?

Sean Connery (the rest are pale imitations) and “Dr. No” tho “Goldfinger” was close.

Not to take anything away from Oddjob, but any flick featuring the name Pussy Galore as a main character has to be a hands down winner.

No. But he married Diana Rigg in that flick. She was one of my favorites until she got old and beat looking.

Sean Connery is James Bond. “From Russia with Love” is the best film. Although I would have preferred that the screenplay writer had stayed with the Soviets versus MI-6 theme of the novel, Ian Fleming obviously approved of the changes. The first five minutes of the film are about as suspenseful as anything I’ve ever seen.

The first one ever I saw was Goldfinger. After that I saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love and was disappointed. Never watched any more. I’d rather watch the Three Stooges. But not if they were episodes with Joe in them.

Agree.....but I’m partial to “Dr. No”..just for the one scene of Ursula Andress walking out of the ocean in the white bikini...IMHO the greatest example ever that less nudity..the illusion..is far more sexy

Sean Connery was the Best Bond and the Best Bond Movie was you only live twice followed close behind by Thunderball.

Of Coarse that's only My opinion.

I know I'm in the minority on this, but Pierce Brosnan was my favorite Bond...had the class, the humor, the "Brit grit". I love the four movies he did, especially GoldenEye. Never get tired of 'em.

From best to worst:
  1. Sean Connery
  2. Daniel Craig
  3. Pierce Brosnan
  4. Timothy Dalton
  5. George Lazenby
  6. Roger Moore
The best Bond movies are GoldFinger and Thunderball. Roger Moore gets a special thumbs down for playing the role "campy." It's disrespectful to the fans. Play the role straight or get out.

Now for the real controversy. The best Bond Girl:

  1. Jill St. John
  2. Honor Blackman
  3. Brit Ekland

Sean Connery in Goldfinger. Oddjob was definitely a top villain. Although, I did like the one where the villain was capturing the space capsules. Wasn’t there a guy on a spacewalk when he was cut off, or was that just 2001?

Both my son and I are in agreement with you. You Only Live Twice.

Besides it has the very best title song, except perhaps from From Russia with Love. Love those REAL songs.

Ursula Andress was the hottest, followed by Ringo’s wife Barbara Bach- then Jill St. John

While Sean Connery defined the movie persona of Bond, my favorite of all is Daniel Craig. He seems to personify the anti-establishment aspect of 007 and brings a raw passion to the role that I like better than the urbane sophistication of all of the other Bond actors. Best movie, Daniel Craig in Casino Royale.

There is no question that (the original) Sean Connery was the best “007” and the best movie was “Goldfinger.”

“Die Another Day”

Love those REAL songs.

3rd question: Best Bond Theme.

As you stated From Russia With Love is a real song. But a strong contender is The Spy Who Loved Me (frequently incorrectly titled "Baby, You're the Best").

Shirley Bassey singing “Goldfinger” was my favorite theme song by far.

Are you high? Roger Moore dead last? He should be at least #3. Daulton, Remington Steele and Lazenby were terrible. Daulton should be last.

Certainly the very best of the Moore movies.

I would rank the actors in this order:

1. Connery

2. Craig

3. Lazenby

4. Moore

5. Dalton

6. Brosnan

Two or three movies from now, Connery and Craig may well change places.

Sean Connery and Roger Morre were the top two
- Pierce Brosnan was no bad at all in the last one he made.

I dont like the new guy - not Bond-like at all
