I had a list like this elsewhere. But mine lacked cool screenshots and stuff.

I was disappointed to see how low You Only Live Twice is on the list. That's one of my favorite Bond films. It's wacky in all the best ways, and has the best score of any.

My least favorite is easily Diamonds are Forever. What an ugly, awful film. It made me nauseous, but I remember very little from Die Another Die in its entirety, so that can change.

I also have a weird affection for Octopussy. There's just something about that incoherent mess that I love.

My list for what it's worth:

24. Diamonds are Forever
23. Die Another Day
22. Tomorrow Never Dies
*21. Never Say Never Again
20. A View to A Kill
19. The Man with The Golden Gun
18. The World is Not Enough
17. Quantum of Solace
16. License to Kill
15. Moonraker
14. Dr. No
13. Octopussy
12. The Spy Who Loved Me
11. Goldeneye
10. On Her Majesty's Secret Service
9. The Living Daylights
8. Goldfinger
7. Thunderball
6. Live and Let Die
5. You Only Live Twice
4. Casino Royale
3. Skyfall
2. From Russia with Love
1. For Your Eyes Only

Can't have the same opinions as everyone.

I thought about another Bondathon this year - it could be a pretty motivating project. Unsure on what topics I'd be covering now, but worth a mention.

Yeah, can't believe I missed this back in the day either. It's honestly one of my absolute favorite film franchises, but I still haven't seen them all, which I need to remedy stat.

Casino Royale is my favorite, but I have to be honest, growing up as a kid I really enjoyed the Roger Moore ones, especially Live and Let Die. I doubt they've really aged that well, but I'm definitely planning on starting from the beginning and watching them all the way through soon. I can't believe I still haven't seen On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

And yeah, you should totally rank the theme songs. Number 1 is undeniable…

On a completely random note, last night I saw this 16mm print of Puppet on a Chain, which has a boat chase sequence that was apparently the influence for the one in Live and Let Die.
All I ever wanted was a cool '78 'vette and a house in the country.

Recently Seen: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice , Zootopia , 10 Cloverfield Lane

I forgot how incoherent Quantum of Solace was.

I liked Spectre.
