Forgot to mention the most important thing about Connery is how often he is at a massive disadvantage that he has to overcome. That’s why he’s great. He gets beat up a lot.
CORRECTION: I, a fool, did this whole series of posts from memory and accidentally selected From Russia With Love for Moore, a film he is not in. The correct Best Moore is The Spy Who Loved Me. I’m sure you can see how one could make that mistake.
@Thomas now your just trolling...
@Thomas im not claiming its not great! i guess it depends on what your definition of "fight" is, if you dont have time for camp then i am a staunch defender of many of craigs scenes. and i dont think theres any question casino royales madagascar chase is the best bond action scene
@garfiald all the modern ones spoil you for good acting and set pieces
@Thomas I always idealized Lazenby in my head as a romantic outsider Bond—until I actually watched OHMSS in full and was thoroughly disappointed. Part of the internal conflict was Lazenby wanting his Bond to be more of a loose unshaven hippy for the 60s and 70s: a big Bond no-no. I like to think if he'd accepted a 6-film run he might have been able to grow comfortably into the role.
@Thomas …as a hippy
Opening the movie with Lazenby breaking the fourth wall and announcing that he's not Sean Connery was probably a mistake. It was meant to be a sly joke, but felt desperate - "I know i'm not the guy you want, but i'm trying my best, please be nice!"
That instantly dug a hole the guy had to climb out of for the rest of the film.
@Thomas For a while I honestly couldn't tell him and Roger Moore apart
@brownpau Roger Moore is the distractingly old one, lol
From Russia With Love isn't Moore though.
@Banquo ah shit I was thinking of The Spy Who Loved Me
It's a lot of movies that tend to blend together at some point.
@Banquo yeah, but that’s one of the good ones! The name was just kind of close
From Russia with Love was Connery, not Moore
@larrydavis a correction was issued.
@larrydavis It was meant to be Spy Who Loved Me.
@larrydavis nope, but that's pretty great. "Something's come up" "He means his cock!"
thanks to this every time i see one of those old bond intros i think "oop, bit of bush!"
@Thomas strong disagree! but some great picks otherwise
@garfiald what’s your ranking?
@Thomas posted it many moons ago...
1. Daniel Craig
2. Roger Moore
3. Sean Connery
4. Timothy Dalton
5. Pierce Brosnan
6. George Lazenby
@garfiald I hated Roger Moore. He just felt too wimpy I think. Anyway, swapping Brosnan and Moore we’re on the same page otherwise
imo, splitting Brosnan between Goldeneye and The Rest is cheating. take the good with the bad, you fucker
@larrydavis I'd still keep him above Craig on the strength of Goldeneye alone, but there's enough good in the other ones to find value
@JohnBrownJr @larrydavis I think it's The World Is Not Enough that starts with him getting captured and tortured by North Koreans and that was so tonally off key. That's why it's the worst Brosnan. But not all of them are like that! Goldeneye being the obvious example, but I think Die Another day is a little more balanced and has some good action sequences
@Thomas most rapey bond?
@victor Lazenby/Connery. In Diamonds are Forever Connery makes a lot of “assumptions”
@Thomas thank you for capturing the stark ‘live and let die’ theme-song-to-movie-quality contrast
@mood It’s unbelievable. I made it *minutes* in before saying “oh no” out loud
@Thomas javier bardem is the best villain sorry
@JohnBrownJr I set my limit to 3 and I went heavy classics. Bardem is *incredible* though, agree. Like half the villains are better than all the Bonds
