I haven’t been able to shift this from my noggin for a few weeks now.   

Imagine her and Mitchell watching Live and Let Die. "Well isn't it convenient how all those crocodiles are perfectly lined up?" "The socio-religious commentary in this is APPALLING."

The best Daniel Craig Bonds are the ones with Timothy Dalton.

The only Bond filmed I've watched all the way through is 'Casino Royale' on a long haul flight. I didn't think it was especially great, though it was watchable enough.What are the best Bond films to start with for someone new to the franchise? I never really see the films ever pop up on 'Greatest Movies Of All Time' lists. Is that because it's uncool to vote for them? Hard to differentiate between them due to the sheer number of films in the franchise? Or do the films just never go beyond 'fun action film' status?

Dalton is criminally underrated. License to Kill is a terrific movie. I like Roger Moore, but I think he was just too old by the time A View to a Kill came around. Him looking so accent at times if what stops View to a Kill being my favorite Bond movie. It near flawless except for Moore looking like a pensioner. If Dalton had been given the role of Bond 1 movie earlier, he would have done

Moore was far to smarmy, I just wanted to smash his fucking face in during every film for being such a smug pompous cunt.I preferred Bond's I could believe would/could kill people.

Just to throw my two cents in,even if they will warrant a bollocking.My favourite Bond films are Licence To Kill (I'm usually a right knob and call it Licence Revoked as it was the original name and sounds much better) and Live and Let Die.On Her Majesty's Secret Service is a close runner for me,I don't care what anybody says.Some terrific action scenes,Diana Rigg acting her(proverbial) bollocks off and a terrific ending that's yet to be matched.And a belting theme tune by Louis Armstrong.Almost forgot about For Your Eyes Only.After losing the plot with Moonraker,they went back to basics and a grounded,badass Bond.And again,cracking theme song.Timothy Dalton is my favourite Bond although i'm aware he's not the best.That nod goes to Moore.Granted he had a couple of duff enteries(Moonraker and Octopussy) but I reckon he did enough during his run to justify the claim.Brosnan was pretty good as Bond although he got saddled with two duff films in his run which pretty much did him in.How about best one liners:Q's call of "I think he's attempting re-entry" in Moonraker is quality,as is Brosnans "I though Christmas only comes once a year" quip in The World Is Not Enough.saucy indeed.Either those or Dalton's "Farewell to arms" pun in Licence To Kill.Britt Ekland was stunning in TMWTGG.Jane Seymour was top in LALD but again i'm throwing Diana Rigg as my number one.Best theme belongs to The Living Daylights.I'm probably wrong on all of the above but,sod it that's my take on Bond.
