I have a soft spot for the Timothy Dalton movies. I thought they were better written and I think Dalton gets a bad rap as the weakest Bond. I prefer License to Kill with Taliso Soto and Carey Lowell. First time I ever saw Benicio Del Toro in anything.
I really like Daniel Craig though.
For the longest time my favorite was Live and Let Die, mainly because of the boat chase scene and a young Jane Seymour. "My cousin Billy Bob has the fastest boat on the river!"
I was not a fan of Brosnan. Although I really liked "The World is Not Enough". I had a thing for Sophie Marceau in that one.
I too loved the chase scene in Casino Royale and the Eva Greene character is one my favorite "Bond girls"-I especially liked the quiet scene where Bond comforts Vesper in the shower after the fight to the death in the stairway.
I agree-Dalton got a bad rap. My listing of my favorite Bond movies had both of Dalton's films in the top 8. Other than Craig Dalton was perhaps the most believable in action scenes and a good actor.
I like Craig and all three of his films were good, but I have Skyfall outside the top 5 rather than right near the top.
I love Jane Seymour and I used to rank Live And Let Die higher than I do now.
I have a weakness for Goldeneye, which I find very watchable, but it is the only Brosnan Bond I really care for.
I move my rankings of Bond films around, but the top five or six are always somewhere near the top, and the bottom of the order always has The Man With The Golden Gun, Die Another Day and Diamonds Are Forever, with the latter always at the very bottom.
