I dont like Casino Royale that much.
There are bits I like. But I really feel its overrated. I also really like Spectre, which a lot of people donít, so yeah.

Let me have a think about some of my favourite scenes.

I hate people who don't paint their armies, hate them with all my guts. Beats me how they value other things over painting, like eating or brushing teeth.

Using one freight liner to knock out other freight liners.
I know Licence to kill is not everyone's favourite Bond movie; I just appreciate all the effort that went into that scene.

I love Timothy Dalton Bond. Very underrated IMO.

What is do wrong about that scene, is the scene after where he appears in her shower.

I like this video because it has an interview with Diana Rigg and she really was a sexy woman ...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrNWTwsk188

... the interview comments by Lazenby are interesting, and I can see why he didn't last past one film.

Interesting.

I never considered much about why Lazenby only did one.

The late Roger Moore in "Live and Let Die" ...
 
Solitaire (played by a very young Jane Seymour) says, "Well that wasn't very fun."

A pause as Bond walks to the train window followed by ... "Now what are you doing?"

Bond tosses the prothesis and says, "Just being disarming darling."

Here's the full scene ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUg7_BpfZ3k

I watched The Man With The Golden Gun the other day for the first time in decades. Its aged quite badly
P.S 25 years ago this film was more popular with my friends and I as we were all obsessed with the weapon in question from the old N64 game

Haven't watched that one in years.  I recall it not having been one of my preferred Bond films.

Oliver Harper recently did a retrospective review of it which is what prompted me to watch it
The girl-slapping, kitschy 70's aesthetics and unfunny humour make it hard to watch. Additionally; the films most iconic moment [the 'corkscrew' bridge jump] is ruined by a needless slide whistle.

Diamonds are forever will...forever be my least favourite Bond outing. My Dad had it on VHS, years and years ago and we both thought it was hilarious

Here's the 1971 official trailer ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yOamj4mlnE

It has Vegas after the the 1960's ... oh my gosh.

Jill St. John's character, "My name is Plenty"

Sean Connery as Bond, "Why of course you are."

And her character replies classic Bond fashion, "Plenty O'Toole."

Using one freight liner to knock out other freight liners.
I know Licence to kill is not everyone's favourite Bond movie; I just appreciate all the effort that went into that scene.

Timothy Dalton is my favorite of the Bonds. I think he portrays the Bond from the novels better than anyone.

I WANT to like Living Daylights but I find the endless betrayals very hard to follow. Not to mention the Afghan rebels are proto-terrorists
