I will say something a little controversial though! I honestly think that Pierce Brosnan was the best Bond - he just happened to not get given the best Bond movies (apart from Goldeneye). Brosnan really got shorted IMO and is certainly the most underrated Bond so far.
If I remember correctly then Simon Mayo, the radio presenter whose contributor is Mark Kermode (Hello to Jason Isaacs!) agrees with you on this.

Personally I also like Connery the most. Although OHMSS has on of the best stories and The Spy Who Loved is great fun with all those gadgets. I like Thunderball a lot.

My Review:
Well, this James Bond movie is a real good movie actually. And the story was very good aswell IMO, and i kinda liked what they did with everything here. IMO this movie was ahead of its time. And with how the movie starts its kinda gets my attention on what will happend. This one is more of the "typical" James Bond movies i would say. And there are some very good scenes that i really enjoyed. F.ex the skiing scene was awesome, and the bob scene aswell. But even though the movie had it great moments, its a few things that i didnt like about it aswell. George Lanzenby as James Bond, no good IMO. I dont think he did 007 justice! Get Sean Connery back.. And they could have made the movie a bit shorter than 2hours and 20mins. And a few small other things. But other than that. A good an enjoyble 007 movie.





My Rating:
We'll Always Have Paris.

Many people agree that OHMSS is one of the best Bond movies that unfortunately has to cope with the weakest Bond.

And they did :laugh:, they did get Connery back after this one...

I like Brosnan as Bond. 

I've enjoyed all of the movies to some extent, though the Dalton movies just didn't work as well for me.  Yes I know many really like those..I just didn't like him as Bond and didn't care for his movies. 

Daniel Craig is fine as Bond..though I don't like some of the ..choices that have been made for the last 2 - possibly the new one as well.  The last 2 tried too hard to be a Bourne movie.  I didn't like the shaky camera work in the action scenes in the Bourne movies, and I didn't like it in Bond.
