Moonraker is probably the best James Bond book, but the best James Bond movie is Goldeneye, followed by You Only Live Twice, which is the worst James Bond book.
Absolutely on Goldeneye!
Although it's balanced out by the other Bronson films being the worst.
Strongly dislike the Daniel Craig ones. They're all caught in this awkward middle trying to ape The Bourne Udentity whilestill having a foot in the older Bond style. Stop trying ti make Bond into a pathos!
Best Bond movie is Goldfinger. Best theme song, best henchman.
Best Theme Song: You Only Live Twice, Nancy Sinatra has the voice of an angel. Shirley Bassey sounds like a two-pack-a-day girl.
Best Henchman: Famke Janssen as Xenia Onnatop. She is Famke Janssen. She kills you with her legs. It's great.
Best Villain: Blofeld, tthe You Only Live Twice version. If we're talking the about the books, Hugo Drax.
Best Bond: Timothy Dalton, accepting that he never really got a truly kickass movie.
Most Under-Rated Bond Movie: Quantum of Solace. Why all the hate for this one? It had tight pacing, a great sidekick lady, another great sidekick lady and unlike the last two, the plot wasn't a nonsensical garbage heap! The last two weren't Live and Let Die bad, or View to a Kill bad, but they were bad.
Worst Bond Movie: View to a Kill. Also least-fuckable Moneypenny by a mile.
Live and Let Die is the best theme.
Goldeneye is a dreadful movie. Any of the Connery films were much better.
Connery Bond movies were more Club Med ads than spy flicks.
Nothing beats the tank chase in Goldeneye. I honestly cant recall a single action scene from the Connery ones. The ultimately pointless car chase from Goldfinger?
Best Connery Action Scene: The ninja invasion of the volcano base from You Only Live Twice.
Best Connery Fight Scene: Judo fight on the Orient Express in From Russia With Love
Or the really boring and drawn out end duel in Man With the Golden Gun.
A View To a Kill is amazing, you lunatic!
This is undeniable:
Live and Let Die is pretty amazing, too.
But I like my camp earnest, not self-deprecating.
Octopussy is king of the trash bonds. All this and Joe Don Baker!
Wasnt Joe don Baker the villian in The Living Daylights?
And then he went on to play Felix in Goldeneye?
Over the past few years I've come to the conclusion that the Roger Moore bond films are actually my favorite ones.
I did too but it took me some time to accept it.
I think people are too hard on this movie.
Who says this is worse than OHMSS?
Me. I like George Lazenby. Probably my second favorite Bond.
I personally hold that Diamonds Are Forever is the best Bond movie, but I see the appeal of Moonraker. Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd bridge the gap, though.

The art of film-making may have regressed in the past few decades but based on this I'd hazard that the art of trailer-making has advanced significantly.
*Unhesitatingly jumps off of cliff, camera follows*
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
Yeah BWOOORN, but it is effective, for a big dumb blockbuster its totally appropriate. But also decent films have good trailers, just randomly, say birdman and whiplash
Whatever you think of the movie, the score by John Barry is one of his best Bond film scores and probably one of his best film scores period.
