Ranking the Official James Bond Films

james_bondGrowing up, I was fascinated with James Bond. The same uncle who made me obsessed with Godzilla and Star Trek, also gave me my Bond obsession. Luckily for me, they still make Bond films and the current crop are pretty high quality. Here, I rank all the James Bond films… at least the official ones, anyway.

5. Skyfall (2012 – Daniel Craig)
6. Live and Let Die (1973 – Roger Moore)
7. The Spy Who Loved Me (1977 – Roger Moore)
8. Goldeneye (1995 – Pierce Brosnan)
9. Thunderball (1965 – Sean Connery)

  1. Always a bold move to rank films and one that invites plenty of intrigue and perhaps controversy. Isn’t it so ironic that the Lazenby flick comes in at number one when generally he’s regarded as the throwaway Bond. I’m a fan of the Dalton films and would rank them highly. Surprised you don’t have Solace near the bottom next to the rightful holder Die Another Day. For fun, where would you slide in Never Say Never Again?

    • Never Say Never Again would probably be somewhere around the lower-middle. I really need to watch again, though. It’s been a really long time.
