    This is interesting, because Connery is my favorite Bond. He is a weapon. The Bond of Dr. No, From Russia with Love, and Diamonds are Forever is Lemarchand's box.

    Maybe I need to revisit it then. But part of that is my genderal preference for newer movies.

    Brosnan is Roger Moore with better action scenes.
    I think you should read what I said about Brosnan a little closer

    This was true of Dalton too, with the added problem that Dalton was miscast. It would be like Pee Wee Herman as Bond: he's great at what he does, but god it's not that.

    Rex Harrison was considered for Bond. That has to be the worst idea I have ever heard, and that includes Ronald Reagan as Rick.

    The last 2.3 Bonds have been inane. The "Bond in Love" act at the end of Casino is the worst protracted period of Bond ever, particularly jarring since the first two-thirds was the best Bond since Connery's first run. Quantum was garden variety bad Bond, in the style of, say, Moonraker. And then Skyfall was a heaping pile of sentimental excrement from end to end in a way that no other Bond movie has ever been (Never Say Never Again is the only one that was close).

    Craig is so compromised now by terrible character development decisions that he might flub even with the best script possible. His fourth will just be a placeholder to the next Bond, and they better have somebody spectacular to rescue the franchise from turning into British Mission Impossible. I'm rooting for Idris Elba just to watch knuck heads asplode. Even better would be Penélope Cruz bedding Russian agents two at a time like cocktail waitresses. Not just a Latina and not just a 45-year old Latina but a 45-year old Latina strumpet. Put her in a BLM shirt and unleash her on the Dumpies.

    I dont mind Craig...but Brosnan was awful. It was a decade too late. Hell he looked like it physically hurt him to kiss a girl half the time.

    "You counted the days." "I made the numbers up." Every scene she's in is amazing. And I don't even like her.

    dx, I know you hate old movies but please give that one a try. It's in my top 10.

    First off, Craig has had his fourth already with Spectre.

    Skyfall was great. Casino Royale was also great, but would've been better had it ended with him turning in his resignation and saving the Venice scene for the precredits intro to Quantum.

    Quantum sucked because it was a Bourne movie with Bond's name slapped on it.

    Also as I've said before, Brosnan was a great Bond stuck with bad scripts outside of GoldenEye. Tomorrow Never Dies has aged better than almost any other Bond movie, however.
