What is the best James Bond movie? For me, it's "Licence to Kill", mainly because of the story, actors, action and setting. I don't really like the James Bond movies with Sean Connery, never appealed to me, or Daniel Craig's, except for Skyfall, which was good.

It was always the Roger Moore films that I was brought up watching. I think The Man with the Golden Gun is probably my favourite. The idea of a golden gun fascinated me when I was younger and on top of that I always enjoyed the scene in Scaramanga's fun house. Christopher Lee is pretty cool too.

The original, 'Casino Royale' starring David Niven. It's not an official James Bond movie, more of a spoof James Bond movie but it's still the best of the lot.
When it comes to James Bond, I don't think I have watched enough of his movies to really make a case for which one I like most. I mean, I think Goldfinger is probably the best one, so that goes to show how many I have seen. I still don't know how that bodyguard guy was so terrified of that hat though. You would think that he would have trained himself to catch it or something.
The Bird of Hermes is my name, eating my wings to make me tame.
I've heard a theory that every actor does one too many. For the bond I grew up with, Pierce Brosnon, that's pretty true. Goldeneye was great, tommorow never dies and the world is not enough were watchable, die another day was trash.
So for personal prefrence I'd say Goldeneye. I like never say never again while I was growing up but it hasn't aged well. Still I maintain that Sean Connery holds the right to play an aging version of Bond.
It's hard to pick just one, but I also think License to Kill is of the greats.
I've started reading the novels recently. I'm nearly finished with the second book, Live and Let Die. It's much more serious and realistic in tone than the movie.
For me, it might be Moonraker, but that's because I love Roger Moore as James Bond, I love Jaws as a villain, and I love the idea of going up into space. The zero-gravity effects were actually pretty good.
The correct title would be "Your favorite James Bond movie?" since "best" is often debatable. My five favorites in no order would be this:
From Russia With Love
From Her Majesty's Secret Service
Spy Who Loved Me
Licence to Kill
Goldfinger (gotta love mostly naked golden girl)
Finished Live and Let Die. Awesome book.
Funny thing. In the book, Felix Leiter is captured and villains have a shark maul him. They leave a note on him that says "He disagreed with something that ate him."
This event would later be used in the Licence to Kill movie.
Sean Connery and Timothy Dalton are my favorite ones. Daniel Craig is an okay for me, but Skyfall might change that.

I've not watched a single one of them in my life for I have no reason to.

I've always been a fan of the Bond films, which doesn't mean I like all of them (some are truly awful, especially in the later part of the Roger Moore era), but I certainly enjoy quite a few. I have favourites for each Bond, and I struggle to compare them as they are all so different.
Favourite Connery- You Only Live Twice.
I love the far East setting, and it has not only the most iconic villain in Blofeld, but also the volcano lair. One of the classics (though only narrowly beating out Goldfinger)
(I should add that On Her Majesty's Secret Service is also a great Bond film)
Favourite Moore- Spy Who Loved Me
Roger Moore is very hit and miss for me. I didn't take to his brand of corny comedy and silly villains, and some of his movies are amongst the worst in Bond history. This one is probably the most similar to the other Bond films (Jaws aside, and this is a much more menacing Jaws than in Moonraker), and has a decent balance of action and plot.
Favourite Dalton- License to Kill
I love both of these movies, but I always preferred this one. A total reinvention of Bond, and a much needed reboot of the series.
Favourite Brosnan- Goldeneye.
Anyone born in the mid to late 80s is bound to have this near the top- I lived on Goldeneye 64 for many years, and this film will always be amongst my favourites because of that. Tomorrow Never Dies is great for the first three quarters and then ends poorly, with a pathetic villain, while The World is Not Enough is also a great Bond film. Die Another Day is probably the worst Bond film ever made.
Favourite Craig- Casino Royale
This invented the new Bond brand, and so far this is a brand that I have really enjoyed. It has brought a reality and grittyness back to the role that was present in the books, but rarely in the films. Skyfall was also a brilliant film, but Casino Royale, despite weaker perfomances, has more balance as a story.

I haven't watched a James Bond movie in awhile.
But I particularly liked Dr. No, Diamonds Are Forever, and The Spy Who Loved Me.
I'm a big fan of all the Brosnan James Bond films, except Die Another Day (which is fucking awful). The trilogy of '90s Bond films is amazing, though. It's a tough call between Goldeneye and The World Is Not Enough. Goldeneye is slightly better, I think. Sean Bean's amazing role gives it a slight edge over The World Is Not Enough.
I haven't seen Skyfall yet, but I hated Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.
The only James Bond movies I saw were all the recent ones with Pierce Brosnan or Daniel Craig. Of those, I think I'd think I'd have to say my favorite is the 2006 version of "Casino Royale", which most people seem to regard as their favorite recent JB movie as well.

Casino Royale, I even watched them all practically back to back and Casino Royale was still the best. Dr No is a close contender though.
