I still think Connery is the best Bond, but Daniel Craig for me is a mighty close second, and I think "Casino Royale" is the Bond film that comes closer than any of the others to the original Bond novels as Ian Fleming wrote them. It's also the one where the Bond character is closest to Fleming's original vision, so for those reasons I'd vote for that one.
Are you referring to the recent "Casino Royale" or the tele-movie made in the 1950s or the off the wall comedy also titled "Casino Royale" in which you had more James Bonds running around than you could shake a stick at? Not keen on the latest bloke to play Bond. He is just a cold blooded killer and that's it.
I can't knock Diamonds are Forever. Back then the Brits had to stop the Russians and the Yanks from going to war. It was as if "mother" Britain had to play peacemaker between the two naughty boy nations and, at the same time, send her favorite son to find out who was really causing the trouble. It was all cold war fun. Nowadays Bond isn't out to save the world. He just seems to kill people and that is about it.
ever since my stay in a mental institution i've hated those movies. a really big monster of a guy kept the remote and kept it on those movies. if i wasn't crazy before i went in i was sure crazy coming out.lol
For me it has to be Tina Turner's Golden Eye.. best ballad ever..Although I do Like Gladys Night's Licence to Kill and Madonna's Die another Day..The worst has to be Casino Royale.. I don't even know who sang the damn...
