    Films as such are another story, I prefer

    and
    Moonraker
    (with Moore)

    What in the hell is this a recording of?

    And btw, Moore was the kind of Bond one would watch if one can't find a better Bond film.

    That said, I like all the Bond films, even though they've been decried as objectifying women. I like watching Connery, his Bond seems more enjoyable than some, and he seems believable in the role. I liked Timothy Dalton, I wish he'd made more Bond films. Moore seems forgettable. I liked Pierce Brosnan, he looked the most like Bond as described by Fleming, even though Dalton was more like Fleming's Bond in personality; I read every Bond novel. I find Daniel Craig very compelling, I'm sad that we may have seen his last Bond film.

    I liked Dr. No (1962), The Living Daylights (1987), Goldeneye (1995) and Casino Royale (2006). I seem to have a heavy preference for first Bond films for the various actors. But I do think The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), and not Live and Let Die (1973), was Moore's best Bond film, even though the film had nothing to do with the novel, the plots were completely different.

    Daniel Craig is my '007' - human, with character, both good and bad sides.

    Best costume: Daniela Bianchi's black neckband in From Russia With Love and no it's not about how the US got its 45th president.

    Edit: That's my favorite Bond film, too.

    The best music too, many people think.

    Goldfinger.

    The Dalton installments were good solid thrillers by any standard, Bond or otherwise.
    The Moore installments became self-parodies of the Bond genre (not that that was Moore's fault).
    The Brosnan installments were factory-formula films (not that that was Brosnan's fault).

    Goldfinger had all the elements before they became formulaic: memorable song, memorable villians (Gert Froebe as Goldfinger, a well-known foreign actor in his own right), Oddjob (the man with the killer hat), the good girl who dies for the cause (the now-famous golden girl scene), the seductress-bad girl (Pussy Galore, the villian's accomplice), memorable car (debut of the now-famous Aston Martin), and an actual plot.

    The Daniel Craig installments have been good, too, though I have not yet seen Spectre.
