    I've never really gotten into the Bond films. However, GoldenEye on N64 is possibly the best video game ever.

    I like all of the old ones, just for nostalgia. I haven't seen any since Sean Connery/Roger Moore quit doing them.

    Connery - You Only Live Twice
    Moore - For Your Eyes Only
    Brosnan - GoldenEye
    Craig - Casino Royale

    I am sorry your Poll choices don't ring with me to choose. I read a lot of the JB Ian Fleming Novels in HS before the movies. Sean Connery IMHO was the consumate James Bond. Pierce Brosnan is an acceptable second.
    James Moore Brouhaha, Dalton to me lacking.

    Haha, yes! I always hated whenever anyone used Oddjob though. As far as movies go, my favorite is Thunderball. I love all the scuba stuff, and I grew up on the classic Bond films.

    I am a Sean Connery fan, but the new Daniel Craig's are great. Goldfinger and You Only Live Twice are my favorites of the old ones.

    The best Bond flick is beyond a doubt (IMHO) Goldfinger. No. 2 would be, You Only Live Twice. However, any with Sean Connery as Bond will do to entertain me. I do like Daniel Graig though and believe he makes a pretty good James Bond.

    I grew up watching James Bond. I was fifteen when Ursula Andress walked out of the water in "Dr No". Less than three years later I was in the Army because a recruiter asked, "Have you ever considered ASA?"

    "No sir. I've never heard of it. What is it?"

    "Well, I don't really know. It's all top secret stuff. Sort of like James Bond. Do you like James Bond?"

    I swear until that day I never knew that the US Army had Aston Martins.

    While Sean Connery will always hold a special place, I like the work that Daniel Craig is doing now.

    I've enjoyed the characters, myself. Interesting, strange, fairly unique. Typical bad-guys done atypically. Plus, the 50yr old "campy" look to it all is half the fun.

    Could've kept the silly underwater Lotus, though.

    My favorite? Probably the contemporary Casino Royale with Daniel Craig.

    Gotta love the look of some of the Bond girls, though: Sophie Marceau, Talisa Soto, Jane Seymour, Carey Lowell, ...

    My favorites are the oldest and newest, those with Sean Connery and Daniel Craig. Roger Moore really stunk. And yes, I own them all.

    Connery Had the Scotish grit the cold warrior with a" licence to kill". And Connerys Bond did kill, bussiness like with no remorse. Ruthless & driven. Driven because of Queen & country and his own large "you won't beat me " ego. Connerys Bond was believable the plots while over the top were not silly spoofs that the Roger Moore Bond films became.
    My 3 favorite Connery flims are the first three
    1. Dr. No
    2. From Russia with love
    3. Goldfinger
    I also loved Never Say Never Again.
    Roger Moore made alot 007 flicks and I went & saw them at the theater & went home disapointed. I just couldent take the smart alect English gentelman as a ruthless goverment killer. it was as if Moores Bond was driven only by a chance he might get to snap off lame one liners & meet
    exotic beauitful women.
    I liked one Moore 007 film A View to a Kill.
    Dalton really Sucked. Brosnans Bond was much better not Connery better but Moore better.
    George Lazenby might have one of the best Bonds. His one 007 film On Her Majesty's Secret Service was one of the best Bonds films ever.

    Then comes Danel Craig. I think he brings back the ego driven goverment killer that Connery brought to life. An adrenaline junkie a womanizer a man with an insatiable appetite for his own ego and driven to satisy what cannot be satisfied....himself.
    Craigs first 007 film changed the franchise for the better I diden't feel silly watching it.

    Forgive me Connery fans but my favorite James Bond 007 film of all time is Skyfall.

    For Your Eyes Only. Melina was beautiful and the plot was one of the more believable.
