I'm torn. Connery is the original, and the '60s films are excellent. But Casino Royale has to be fairly close to top of the list for anybody who's read Fleming's books.

I like Goldeneye from the Pierce Bronsan period (something different). The bungee jump is the beginning is amazing and you get Sean Bean as 006.

As a kid I read almost all of Flemings Bond books and the only person I pictured when reading was Sean Connery.

Connery is the original Bond, everyone else are just a posers.

While I grew up in the Connery period (and I like to guy), I have to shay I prefer Broshnan and Moore ash Bond.

Don't have a "favorite" film per shay, sheveral Bond films are equally good ash far ash I'm concerned.

Yup. Brosnan in Goldeneye. His era films got progressively worse, and by the last one he looked too bloated to even fit in the signature tux.

Daniel Craig was better than I expected, but he's in third on my list. We'll see what the Quantum of Solace brings...

I like Daniel Craig as 007. My idea of what a super-spy should be.

Connery and Craig are my favorites. I loved Casino Royale too...alot darker than the typical Bond movie.

Well, I like Mr. Brosnan in Goldeneye, some of the Roger Moore movies, like Live and let Die, and Daniel Craig was also very good as 007, but I'm a closet fan of a forgotten Bond, Mr. Timothy Dalton, in The Living Daylights. Ya know, Pierce Brosnan was actually supposed to be in TLD, but he wanted to continue with his TV show that was on at the time, Remington Steele.

Nobody's mentioned George Lazenby yet....

Under-rated, imho.

Brosnan ... by a mile.
That said, my favourite film is The Man With the Golden Gun ... very hammy Britt Ekland and Christopher Lee ... oh, yeah!

Nick Nack! Tabasco!

george lazenby!

j/k i like roger moore. i think sean connery is the antithesis of sexy. #2 is pierce brosnan. i once ran into timothy dalton at an electronics store. that was my bond moment.

best bond flick? hmm...
no order: octopussy, the spy who loved me, and parts of view to a kill (awesome duran duran intro, grace jones, christopher walken, great locales, but the bond girl sucked and roger moore was too old for this), man with the golden gun, goldeneye, for your eyes only, and i guess you could count never say never again (

my favorite bond girls are #1 famke janssen (xenia onatopp ), #2 grace jones (mayday), #3 maude adams (octopussy and she was also in man with a golden gun), #4 carole bouquet (melina), #5 barbara carrera (fatima blush).

Brosnan first and Connery second. I don't really have a favorite movie but I really like the ice hotel and car chase scene on ice in Die Another Day.
