I think the problem with post The Spy Who Loved Me Roger Moore films is the same thing that happened to the last two pierce Brosman movies in which they found a formula that worked but tried to make a bigger and bigger story arc that was too big even for James Bond.
Old dog..........new tricks..........
There needs to be a category for best/worst double entendre or pun...
I can count on one hand the number of Bond films I have seen from start to finish.
Architects do it with models.

Worst day ever for Bond villain
First Bond takes his car in a Texas Holdem Game......
Then he gets his old lady.......
Then he stick a knife in his gut..........bad day
Best James Bond villain: James Bond.
Seriously, go read up the history of the character (..... Galore scene in "Goldfinger" is still one of the most uncomfortable scenes ever in a movie) and you might be shocked at some the actions of this so-called "hero".
Best Bond female name: Vesper Lynd.
Worst thing about Bond movies: The villain monologuing.
Creepiest Bond: Sean Connery. (ie ..... Galore incident).
Best Bond: They haven't created him yet. If it was up to me, they would reboot the franchise (I know they just did with Craig). Reboot it completely and completely was their hands of everything that has happen in the Bonds franchise.
I am disheartened about what I have read and seen about James Bonds. This guy is not likable at all, especially the Connery version.
I'm sorry that I am THAT guy in the thread but is upsetting to find out that one of your favorite characters is a unlikable heel.

I won't claim to be a huge Bond fan so Casino Royale is the best for me. Spectre was a pretty big disappointment.
My dad showed me a lot of them as a kid and they kind of blur together - although I remember the Compression Chamber kill in License to Kill vividly from being at the theater. Moonraker and Goldfinger stand out from my childhood campy or not just because of some of the cool stuff in them. When you're like 8-10 years old a frickin space laser battle is pretty freaking cool.
