    Hello All. My first post so I may as well kick the door in.

    Skyfall was, as they say in China, Clap. The worst Bond movie to date, overhyped, oversold & over here. The only decent film DC has featured in thus far is Casino Royale.

    I'll write on the report card 2/10 must do better.

    What? How dare you?

    QOS was a solid little film, and in some small ways even better than CR!
    Agree with you to a degree on SF though.

    Welcome! {[]
    Dalton & Connery rule. Brozz was cool. Craig is too.

    The great thing about the Bond series is, That there are so many great films
    So if one doesn't rock your boat, there'll be another one along in a minute. :))
    Also as you get older or gain different experiences, the ratings of the films on
    Your list can change ;) .
    I know mine have over the years, so now I just assume there are no bad Bond
    Films, only Bond films I haven't come to appreciate yet ! :))

    True, so very true. However even if I were to learn the secret of eternal youth I don't think I'd ever learn to love any film starring Pierce 'trout pout' Brosnan.

    :)) We all have our Favourites. ;) Although Do you watch them at all or
    have you given up, and just avoid them ?

    Dalton - the weak and weepy Bond!

    I saw the first Brosnan outing but was bitterly disappointed by his portrayal & have not watched any of his others. Bond is a killer, a man used to & comfortable around violence & usually men such as that have a certain indefinable 'don't mess with me' quality about them, subtle enough not to shout 'thug' but able to be picked up by others. To me Brosnan just doesn't have that spark nor is he able to represent it on screen. That said I have recently bought one of his films (I forget the title but the one with Halle Berry) I shall at some stage sit down & watch it & hope I prove myself wrong.

    No problem Stagg, I was just wondering. As some here dislike Roger Moore for instance but they'd still
    watch his films. So I was wondering how "Deep" your dislike of Brozza went. :D Nothing wrong with
    that, some people just don't "Do it" for us. :)

    And for the Record TLD and LTK are fantastic Bonds, Higgins. :p

    Agreed about TLD & LTK. Though IMO the first one suffered as a result of a poor script, I thought LTK was a great film with TD doing a good job as Bond. He was the last of the 'real' ones anyhow before the 'whatever you do don't mess my hair up' brigade took over. That's harsh on Craig though as, despite QoS & SF, he makes quite a good Bond. Not for me but nonetheless good.

    I thoroughly enjoyed both of these films and believe that DC makes for an excellent Bond. Each to their own with opinions of course!

    Just make sure you swallow it quickly, or you'll have a stiff neck all night ! :))
