James Bond Soundtracks

By the way, I know it's slightly off topic, but if you love the Bond movie music, I highly recommend this Soundtrack. This is the link to the Amazon site: [link]of+james+bond+50+years

As a vinyl collector though, I've personally made an effort to try and find every Bond soundtrack on the medium (very difficult actually).

As an alternative to the above mentioned soundtrack, or the vinyl solution, I also recommend Shirley Bassey's 'Remix Album', which has several of Bond's classic tracks.

From Russia With Love
For Your Eyes Only
On Her Majesty's Secret Service (best soundtrack too)
The Living Daylights
Casino Royale
Goldeneye

(while hugely entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable, SkyFall, imo, is not as good as Casino Royale)

This...this is the list. These movies don't go too over the top, Bond is at his best in each of them, and they have great music and characters. 100% agree with this list.

On Her Majesty's Secret Service

George Lazenby should have been given a better chance. If anyone has ever read the novels, they would understand that Lazenby, truly, is Ian Fleming's, James Bond. Bond wasn't always suave & sexy in his work, and sometimes had to question himself. With that said, here are my favorite Bond flicks, according to the actor portrayal.

Sean Connery - Goldfinger
George Lazenby - On Her Majesty's Secret Service
Peter Sellers - Casino Royale
Roger Moore - Moonraker
Timothy Dalton - The Living

Timothy Dalton - The Living Daylights
Pierce Brosnan - Goldeneye
Daniel Craig - Casino Royale (have yet to see Skyfall, so who knows..)

Also, you listed, Never Say Never Again (of course unofficial), but you failed to list Woody Allen's Casino Royale, with Peter Sellers as Sir James Bond (also, unofficial).

Aside from what I have stated, Daniel Craig, is hands down, the best Bond ever.

not gonna vote gonna wait for Skyfall though for the last 6 years it's been Casino Royale and not because it was the newest one but i thought it was a damn great film it's one of the few Bond films where i don't have to rewatch the series to watch this one and Goldeneye is a very close second

Yeah I'm getting a little tired of the "Connery was best" just because he was first. I love Sean Connery, especially as Indiana Jones' father, but I never accepted his voice, eyebrows, or face for this role...no offense. Dalton and Craig are the two most like Fleming's Bond and they get my vote. Brosnan was good, but his voice was always a little...high.

Wow, that banner art of all the Bonds (and bonus Bond girls and villains) is spectacular!

Gotta agree with the masses: Casino Royale and GoldenEye. Both were excellent reinventions of the character after reasonably long absences, and were genuinely exciting, involving films that really got the blood pumping. Casino Royale is better than GoldenEye for me, but GoldenEye has what I think is one of the best Bond villains ever in the form of Sean Bean's Alec Trevelyan. The idea of a villain

The idea of a villain who's cut from the same cloth of Bond and who shares personal history with him has a lot of potential (and Alan Cumming yelling how invincible he is). Casino Royale had the huge, huge burden of selling a skeptical public on Daniel Craig's version of Bond - and that it accomplished, big-time. Skyfall is the best Bond film if you're a Bond devotee - it deconstructs and reconstructs the Bond formula and is an excellent story in and of itself.

Split between From Russia With Love & On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Both transcend the franchise and are amongst the best Cold War spy thrillers ever made. Each sports stunning cinematography, memorable action set pieces, and that distinct 60s style that defines the franchise.

OHMSS got a bad wrap early on because it was trendy to crap on George Lazenby. Well he had impossible shoes to fill and the Bond being portrayed in that film is much more human, grounded, and conflicted. Almost

Well he had impossible shoes to fill and the Bond being portrayed in that film is much more human, grounded, and conflicted. Almost the first attempt at a movie like Casino Royale. And Lazenby IMO absolutely delivers that...I absolutely find myself fearing and feeling for him by the time the third act rolls around.

Well said. Lazenby should have carried the franchise forward in my opinion.

I have to admit for the longest time I was not a fan of the Bond series. I've always been one to like my heroes to be a little more vulnerable yet persistent and that has never really been the Bond way. I've always preferred the John McClanes to the Bonds but that all changed with Casino Royale. They finally took Bond from being the cookie-cutter, badass spy with no weaknesses to a relatable character I can root for. I now that not all guys appreciate a more vulnerable Bond but after all these

Now bring on Skyfall!

Skyfall

i'll admit that i have not seen every james bond film. I've only seen about 6-7 select ones. But i can honestly say that Skyfall is my favorite. I dont think its the perfect depiction of a James Bond movie, but as a movie among other movies, it is the best.

For Your Eyes Only

I know, I know- but I could write an essay on why, I'll just say it was the first one I saw, and it has everything a great James Bond movie needs, as well as a couple of very interesting omissions (no M, forgettable villain) and still it succeeds.
When Bond cold-bloodedly kicks the henchman's car off the edge of the cliff-
Best kill ever.

Ohhhh man, that was the worse Bond movie of all. Absolutely bland from beginning to end. The tie-in to OHMSS is pathetic....plus the Bond babe was NOT beautiful, just done up early '80's style (which was trash IMO).

I have to admit, I didn't get into the Bond series until 1997, when Tomorrow Never Dies came out. That said, my personal fave would have to be "Casino Royale". Everything about it was master-class: the acting, action, plot, dialogue, etc. And I know people bitch about Daniel Craig as being too dour and humor-less. I saw it again last night, and there's plenty of humor to be had. Craig just goes about in a dry and subtle, biting kind of way. Craig is just an all-around excellent bond, the

Living Daylights. Best of John Barry's Scores. Most Ian Flemingish Bond in Timothy Dalton. The henchman is the most badass since Red Grant. That airplane fight pretty much inspired the main action piece of the game Uncharted 3. Favorite scene where Bond is about to execute John Rhys Davis' in the hotel room while the Living Daylights theme plays. Speaking of Red Grant...From Russia With Love is my number 2 because it's very close to the book and again...Red Grant! Then Casino Royale. Goldeneye,

From Russia with Love

Really, my answer will depend based on what Bond/era I'm in the mood for. My top 4 are: From Russia with Love, The Spy who Loved Me, Goldeneye, and Casino Royale. I'm keeping my 5th pick open until I see Skyfall next weekend.
