Would you say it needs to be shaken, but not stirred?
Should have seen that one coming. ¬_¬


I think all the Craig ones have been incredibly boring. I also agree with Gibby that ending the whole thing would be good. At least for another decade.

Of the four Bonds since the reboot, I've really enjoyed two (Casino and Skyfall), liked one (Spectre) and been completely unaffected by the other. I still can't remember the plot of Quantum despite having seen it at least twice. I can remember most of the lyrics to the Something of Boris song, but I don't think that was very faithful to the film.

I don't think it needs another reboot, but I do think Spectre pointed the franchise more toward obscurity.

I think Casino Royale is possibly the best Bond film. Up there with The Living Daylights for me (Fuck you if you don't think Timothy Dalton was a good Bond).

Royale was a great movie indeed. It went a bit too cool for itself after that.

How dare they put The Living Daylights at number 24. :x :x :x

I'm not even being ironic when I say that I think it's one of the best ones. What were they thinking? They've ranked it below some of the ridiculous Roger Moore ones...

But that's why I posted it! :o

I think Bradshaw did a similar thing a while back with Star Wars films, and that was pretty debatable as well.

Yep, here 'tis:

Okay, I'll just mention License to Kill from that list. I love it. It's the only Bond film where you genuinely feel he's going off the rails and he's mixed in with some proper ruthless, vicious people that could just snap and murder him at any moment - plus Dalton is totally believable - it's completely different to any other Bond flick.

Questionable Bond list with Goldeneye that far down, and below Tomorrow Never Dies too!

Moore was the perfect Bond in my eyes, but he did have a few rather dodgy movies. And Casino Royale remains one of my favourites simply for its new take on things following the franchise losing its way after Die Another Day. It helps that I'm rather infatuated by Eva Green and she is just perfect in that movie.

Yeah, that's obscene; Rogue 1 shouldn't be that high. It certainly shouldn't be above Battle for Endor.

That anything separates the original trilogy in positions 1, 2 and 3 is fucking heresy.

So I'm alone then in thinking Rouge One was possibly the best SW film so far then?

I rate it up there with the original 3 but I don't think it's consistently good enough throughout the whole movie for it to be considered the best.
