edited October 2015 in The James Bond Films
If there's one legacy I'll leave to the James Bond fanbase, it's a series of enjoyable, and at times funny, discussions from my loving friends at AJB007. We talk about the faults of the movies, but more importantly, we talk about the many strengths of the films, which have made each of them a part of the world's biggest film series. And, here's the master list.

    Much as I've tended to nitpick on details, I want to say that this has been an enjoyable series and I salute AC for his efforts and would like to say "Thank You" {[]

    And if it's worth anything.... there IS no "best film in the series" as far as I'm concerned. :D

    Higgins must have forgot.

    Compendium (50 years of James Bond 007) is probably the best movie from the entire series :D

    Not sure, I thought that the best movie from the entire series would probably be "Pros and Cons"

    John Barry wins and it's not a fair fight. Lol.

    I added SPECTRE to the compendium.

    the above SPECTRE link is incorrect.
    Should be: https://www.ajb007.co.uk/topic/49175/pros-and-cons-spectre/

    could this thread maybe stickied? Its buried deeper than most of the threads it's linking to.

    a couple of new ones to be added to the list:


    There is a Pros n Cons thread for the new movie that we all feared we might never get to see, created by @John from Cork :

    Pros and Cons: No Time To Die


    I myself created Pros and Cons: Casino Royale (1967) (the "funny" version)

    I also Pros-n-Cons-ified the Climax Mystery Theatre version, but didn't think it warranted its own thread, so its buried in a general Climax Mystery Theatre thread

    we still need Pros-n-Cons threads for Never Say Never Again, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang


    @Shady Tree created a Pros n Cons thread for Call me Bwana, which is an EON production and therefor relevant. I think Shady is the only one to have ever actually seen this movie, but we've all seen the advertisement for the Istanbul showing.
