    For your Eyes Only

    So I was jawing with my buddy about Bond-a-thons and how awesome they are and we were talking about the best and worst of 007... Just curious to some other responses out there to you James Bond fans...

    here are my responses, try and stick to a similar template

    Best Movie: Goldfinger
    Worst Movie: Die Another Day
    Most Underrated Movie: Goldeneye

    Best Bond: Sean Connery
    Worst Bond: Timothy Dalton

    Best Villain: Max Zorin (View to a Kill)
    Worst Villain: Elliot Carver (Tomorrow Never Dies)

    Favorite Bond Girl: Agent XXX (Spy who Loved Me)

    Favorite Bond Moment: 007 letting 006 fall on the satellite dish "For England James? No, For Me"
    WORST BOND MOMENT: Roger Moore on the Back of the Fire Truck in View to a Kill

    Additional Comments: Man with the Golden Gun isn't as terrible as everyone says it is... Scaramanga is sweet

    Re: For your Eyes Only

    I just wanted to say that I think Daniel Craig was a good choice for the latest Bond dude. He adds a little more believability to the physical aspects of what Bond has to do.

    Die another day wasn't that bad I think. MWTGG is definitely underrated. Solid movie, and Tattoo to boot.

    Octopussy is a really, really bad movie. Has to be the worst one.

    I've heard a lot of people say bad things about 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service.' Never seen it completely through, but what little I have seen of it, it didn't look all that bad. Certainly, there were worse movies. (See above)

    An underrated movie is the unofficial 'Never Say Never Again'. Funny as heck, too. Takes itself more lightly than most Bond movies.

    Octopussy wasn't that hot but Maud Adams was quite the package.

    Not as scary as the scene where a 57 year old Roger Moore seduces her.

    Re: For your Eyes Only

    Nobody disses the T-Dalt. He was awesome in The Living Daylights- If I was Pierce, I would be ashamed of the Dial-It-In mentality of everything after Goldeneye (possibly best shooter video game of all time as well...)

    Bonds:

    Sean
    Daniel
    Tim
    Roger
    Pierce
    George

    I also liked Never Say Never Again- dont let other people tell you it isnt a bond film.

    Did you hear about this?

    I'm pretty jacked... hope it doesn't suck, but the allure of the online multi player will probably drive me to buy it

    Additional Comments: Man with the Golden Gun isn't as terrible as everyone says it is... Scaramanga is sweet
    Since I'm the guy with Bond avatar, my answers are the correct ones.

    In any case, let me start off by saying that I will completely agree with your assessment about MWTGG. Everyone seems to hate it. Actually, Scaramanga is my favorite villain.

    Best Movie: Casino Royale (This brought the Bond franchise back and Daniel Craig portrays the original Bond as found in the novels.)
    Worst Movie: Die Another Day
    Most Underrated Movie: Man with the Golden Gun

    Best Bond: Sean Connery (But only for sentimental reasons, both Roger Moore and Daniel Craig are breathing down his back.)
    Worst Bond: Timothy Dalton

    Best Villain: Scaramanga (Man with the Golden Gun)
    Worst Villain: Elliot Carver (Tomorrow Never Dies) -- Can't agree more.

    Favorite Bond Girl: Solitaire (Live and Let Die)

    Favorite Bond Moment: 007 pheasant hunting with Hugo Drax in Moonraker.

    Drax: "You missed, Mr. Bond."
    Bond: [As Drax's sniper falls out of tree]: "Did I? All in good sport."

    WORST BOND MOMENT: Halle Berry

    Re: For your Eyes Only

    Best opening has to be Moonraker. 007 getting pushed out of the plane without a pack. Pretty sweet how they shot that one.

    Best Connery Movie: Goldfinger
    Best Moore Movie: Live and Let Die
    Best Dalton Movie: Licensed to Kill
    Best Brosnan Movie: Golden Eye
    Best Craig Movie: Casino Royale

    Under-rated Bond Films: Live and Let Die, Thunderball, A View to a Kill, Man with the Golden Gun, From Russia with Love

    Best Bond-Girl name: ****-y Galore


    Best Bond: Connery



    Thunderball has the best lines: here's a couple:

    Pat Fearing: Funny-looking bruise. A fall?
    James Bond: A poker, in the hands of a widow.
    Pat Fearing: Really? Id have thought you were just the type for a widow.
    James Bond: Not this one. He didnt care for me at all.

    [Bond shows M a picture of Dominique Derval, the Vulcan pilots
    sister]
    M: Do we know where she is now?
    James Bond: Nassau.
    M: Do you think shes worth going after?
    James Bond: Well, I wouldnt put it quite like that, sir...

    James Bond: [After placing Fiona's body in a chair after she is shot] Do you mind if my friend sits this one out? She's just dead.

    Fiona: Some men just don't like to be driven.
    Bond: No, some men don't like to be taken for a ride.

    Re: For your Eyes Only

    With the exception of Live and Let Die, within my recollection I've only seen the Bond movies since Goldeneye.

    Best Movie: Casino Royale (Although Live and Let Die and Goldeneye are sentimental favorites of mine)
    Worst Movie: Die Another Day
    Most Underrated Movie: Goldeneye

    Best Bond: Sean Connery (Even I'm smart enough to know this is the correct answer, even though I haven't seen his movies)
    Worst Bond: Timothy Dalton (ditto)
    Underrated Bond: Pierce Brosnan (I always thought he did a decent job, it's just every single one of his $cripts sucked following Goldeneye.)

    Best Villain: Kananga (Live and Let Die)
    Worst Villain: Gustav Graves/Col Moon (Die Another Day) - I thought the duo was even worse than Elliot Carver.

    Favorite Bond Girl: Tie between Natalya Simonova (Goldeneye) and Camille (Quantum of Solace)

    Worst Bond Girl
    : Dr. Christmas Jones (The World Is Not Enough) - the final straw for the proof that Denise Richards is incapable of acting

    Favorite Bond Moment
    : I have a few of them - when Bond finds out what "M" stands for and teases M about it, the pen bomb demonstration in Goldeneye ("The writing's on the wall?"), and Q's goodbye.

    WORST BOND MOMENT: The waste of 2.5 hours that were Die Another Day that I'll never get back. Horrible way for Brosnan to go out and I about swore off the Bond series after that movie.

    Favorite Bond Theme: The World Is Not Enough (I'm a Garbage junkie)


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
