Watch From Russia With Love, Moonraker, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Octopussy, Licence to Kill, A View to a Kill and Casino Royale in that order... it should make a little bit of sense.

None of the actors could do "Bond, James Bond" as well as Sean Connery

I'm not saying he was shit, I mean I enjoyed most of the Roger Moore movies but let's be honest he was just one big fuckin' eyebrow in a dinner jacket weren't he?

Not to mention the fact he was never convincing when holding a gun.

Really? The reason I like Sean Connery so much is cause the movies he's in are A+ . What I like about Roger moore is that I can see him as a ladies man. Sean Connery is ugly haha

I also liked the fact that it was casual, like he was genuinely introducing himself. The reason why I didn't like it is the way he said it. It sounds just like Le Chiffre, if for some reason he would say that. Again, this is only a (very) small gripe.

I see what you mean. It does sound a bit like Le Chiffre. :lol:

I suppose we'll see how it works in the film. It doesn't help in the trailer that they slipped a shot in between the line. Maybe there's some context for his delivery of it, like he's worn out or something.

Why does everyone not like Rodger Moore so much :confused:

Nothing wrong with Sir Roger. He was the gentleman Bond and nobody could deliver a quip like him. He also gets bonus points for staying so connected to the franchise (hosting specials, granting interviews, and so on). He's got a great sense of humor in real life and one of the first things he mentions in his book when he gets to Bond is that when he took the role in Live and Let Die, his son actually asked if if he'd be as tough as the real James Bond - Sean Connery.

I'd say Octopussy and The Spy Who Loved Me are my favorites of his.

The Spy Who Loved Me, Licensed To Kill, Cassino Royale and From Russia With Love are mt favorites. Also a big fan of Diamonds Are Forever, despite what people say about it.

Diamonds Are Forever is underrated. It couldn't be taken seriously but it was full of great moments. The first homosexual henchmen, epic Vegas car chase and Jill St. John, one of the hottest Bond girls ever and she ended up screwing Henry Kissinger.

Diamonds is fairly enjoyable, though its my least favorite Connery film. The pre-title sequence is horrible though. Awful editing. Good title song though and the rest of the film is fun.

The song was great though.

What did everyone think of Never Say Never Again? I preferred Thunderball myself.

I'd only seen the teaser before poking my head into this thread. The theatrical trailer got me so much more excited for this one; the whole premise of 007 being "dead" was kinda wild, never saw that coming (And wish it hadn't been spoiled in the trailer).

Since everyone discussing them, here are my rankings of the Bonds, best to worst:

1. Daniel Craig

2. Sean Connery

3. Roger Moore

4. Timothy Dalton

5. George Lazenby

6. Pierce Brosnan

And my top 5 movies:

1. Casino Royale

2. From Russia With Love

3. Goldfinger

4. License To Kill

5. Quantum Of Solace

On a sidenote - when I went to youtube to watch the trailer in HD, one of the recommendations on the side was the trailer for Taken 2 - I had no clue it was ready to come out yet! :lol:

:popcorn:

Judging by the trailer, they actually take Lenore this time. Basically, sounds like the Albanian mafia want revenge so they kidnap her when they're on a vacation in Istanbul.

In order to prevent Taken 2 to be the same movie as the first they have to kill the mother or daughter.
