I watched every BOND film multiple times, expect SPECTRE.Even the very worst Bond films were highly watchable and mostly enjoyable, not in any particular order:DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER (might be my least favorite)LIVE AND LET DIE (felt low budget, but I enjoyed the silliness)NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN ( a poor remake of my favorite THUNDERBALL)OCTOPUSSY-(Silly but kind of fun)VIEW TO A KILL-( kind of slow and boring but some good stunts and Roger Moore was impressive considering his age here)FOR YOUR EYES ONLY (Serious to the max, ski sequences, reminiscent of the superior ON HER MAJESTIE S SECRET SERVICE)MOON RAKER- (silly fun, and enjoyable, but considered one of the worst)LIVING DAY LIGHTS (Dalton was a very serious BOND, especially after MOORE, a bit slow, but still liked it)LICENSED TO KILL ( Very tough Dalton, fast moving, but felt like a really good cop show on TV not a Bond movie)TOMORROW NEVER DIES- (A bit dull , but enjoyable nonetheless)WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH- ( Over the top , but again quite likeable)QUANTUM OF SOLACE- (Some boring stretches, but again watchable)My favorites again not in any particular order:DR NO Very satisfying debut , even without the high budget and gadgets. Featuring my favorite Bond girl Ursula Andress. Connery looked quite young, but looked experienced already.FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE- Epic entry, the higher budget shows. Considered by some as the most original BOND film ever. Well it was only the second film so it should be original. GOLDFINGER- Most overrated Bond film. I enjoyed it to a point, but the hype for it let me down. Too slow and dull. I liked the action much more in every other 60 s Bond Film. But this is considered the best by many. Connery looked very handsome here and the female villains were extremely sexy.THUNDERBALL- My personal favorite, exactly for the reason some found it slow. The underwater action was stunning. And the action on land was fantastic. Connery never looked more handsome and he was simply the perfect BOND here. The girls were gorgeous too. Scenery of the Bahamas was magnificent.YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE- My least favorite of the good Connery Bond films, but still fun. Connery did not look handsome here, strange because its only 2 years after his peak THUNDERBALL.He didn t look so interested. I guess that s why he wanted to end it here.ON HER MAJESTIE S SECRET SERVICE- Lazenby was solid as Bond and the film was well made, but had ta bit too many slow spots. But the action sequences were best yet and more than compensated for the few slow spots. . Loved it all in all. Very underrated.MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN- A bit slow, but enjoyable.SPY WHO LOVED ME-Fastest and most impressive Bond film starring Moore. I would say my second favorite Bond film after THUNDERBALL Fun Fun Fun, every minute.GOLDEN EYE- Fantastic action, great debut for Brosnan.DIE ANOTHER DAY-My favorite starring Brosnan, and better than any of Bond 90 s movies Lots of fun and felt like the most expensive budget for a Bond film to this point. Great way to start the new century. CASINO ROYALE- Tough Craig was impressive. Not light or humorous like previous entries, but fast moving and enjoyable. SKY FALL-Epic in the way DIE ANOTHER DAY was. One of my all-time favorite Bond films.
