    I tried it once. Didn't have too much effect on my love life, but it did prevent me from accidentally rolling out of bed. :))

    :)) Only testing how Deep Stagg's dislike of Brosnan went. ;)
    and it runs, pretty deep !
    He dislikes Brosnan more than I dislike Moonraker! :o

    Believe it or not, it sounds like it's possible he dislikes Brosnan even more than I dislike Moore!!!! :o :o :o

    How deep is the Mariana Trench? Well try diving down to it's lowest point & you'll get an idea the depth of my dislike for Mr 'because I'm worth it' Brosnan. The man is an out & out poseur who is about as credible in the role as my great aunt Ada. Roger Moore had his eyebrow, Brosnan expanded the range of facial expressions to include clenched jaw & a pout the like of which isn't usually seen outside the Milan fashion show.

    You like Dalton, so I'll let that slide. ;) :))
    Dalton & Connery rule. Brozz was cool. Craig is too.

    Wow, you put into words what I couldn't express myself. I tried, but couldn't articulate it as good as you. Thanks!

    I couldn't agree more with stag's view of Brosnan. His tenure nearly put me off altogether.

    I'm surprised there's so much negative attitude towards Brosnan, who revived the series from its box-office low point and brought coolness back to the role...

    IMO it'll settle down with time, like the current love for Craig.

    Well, I thought he made a fine Bond -{ only let down by some
    Poor scripts and some really silly gadgets. :# Which after all
    The actor has no control over.

    I'm surprised at the depth of the negativity, although it doesn't appear to be very widespread. Brosnan isn't the best Bond, but I certainly don't see him as the worst either.

    Brosnan was cool, says so in a tag line.

    Brozza wasn't that bad. It was a shame that his tenure ended with DAD - but it is still watchable (but infuriating at times with the invisible car, John Cleese, Madonna's cameo, etc). Perhaps the only criticism was that he tried to be Moore (geddit?!) like Sir Rog than put himself in the role.
    In terms of Skyfall, I have a revisionist view on it. I was excited after I left the cinema watching it because it wasn't QoS (but actually after watching QoS several times, I quite enjoy it now). however, watching Skyfall again, I think that it is overrated. Bardem was not as good as he thought he was, DC still needs to decide whether he is going to go the full way with the wise-cracking, girl-loving Bond we want or not (because the 'halfway -house' version isn't working.) The ending was poor (killing Silva with a stab wound to the back was as big an anti-climax as you could get (and I do accept that the final act was a great touch, but for a baddie to be beaten that easily was not on).
    Mendes did an ok job (but again not as good as he thought). I think the next film needs a lot more work (call in Martin Campbell for advice will you Sam). Casino Royale has been DCs (and the Bond franchise's) high point so far. SF is ok, but not a sgood as it could have been.

    You mirror some of my own feelings. -{ I too think CR is the
    High point so far, and I've gong from hating QOS to quite liking it. :))
    I regard SF as a second reboot or tweaking of the formula, adding a
    Little more humour but not at the expense of story. So who knows with
    Bond24, there might be yet another tweak ? :))

    A valid opinion. I like TMWTGG a great deal. To each his or her own.

    Yes... as long as we all understand that Tim's two are not only the best Bond films ever, but two of the best movies in the history of mankind.

    TLD was so refreshing after Old Roger, and LTK was Fleming's Bond on Screen {[] :D

    I'm so relieved! For a moment I thought you had "gone 'round the bend" - like our unfortunate friend who claims YOLT puts him to sleep! :))

    For the record, there are four Bond movies that I prostrate myself before, DN, FRWL, TLD & LTK. My favourites are below. ;)
