    Watched live and let die. I really enjoyed it. Thought moore was different but brought his own thing to the role. Memorable characters and a great villain. It delves into blaxploitation stuff and adds more fantastical elements than the previous installments. Also has by far the best villain death in the series. New rankings:

    8. Dr. No
    7. Thunderball
    6. Diamonds are forever
    5. Goldfinger
    4. From Russia with love
    3. Live and let die
    2. You only live twice
    1. On her majesties secret service

    Watched the man with the golden gun.

    This movie is maybe a few changes away from being one of my favorite ones. It is definitely the most bonkers and campy one so far. But I like that shit. The villain is great, scaramanga. The golden gun is pretty cool. And honestly so far even the connery ones are campy. There are hilarious scenes in it. However it feels a little all over the place, especially in the middle portion. The editing doesnt flow well. Also it seemed like they were trying to make Moore's bond more like connerys bond especially in the first half of the film. In the second half you get the live and let die style bond, which is great but it makes the character feel a little uneven. As if moore is simultaneously trying to do his own thing he did in live and let die while also trying to satisfy connery purists. The hall of mirror james bond wax figure scene in the beginning is hilarious. Hes literally trying to balance and you can see him move.

    it’s a mediocre one as far as I’m concerned, for the reasons that you indicated. Glad you enjoyed it though. At the very least it has the awesomeness of Christopher Lee being a Bond villain.

    really enjoy that opening song too. Also, Live and Let Die has to be one of the coolest Bond songs ever.

    I forgot to mention live and let die is the best song so far. Even though I've heard it a billion times.

    OHMSS is one of my favorite Bond movies. Lazenby was a good Bond. One of the best, actually. Also, Telly Savalas was great in that one as the villain. I still crack up when I watch that movie and it gets to the parts where he brainwashes that girl to "love chickens." I have always argued that OHMSS was one of the better Bond movies, but most people didn't/don't feel that way. I like Dalton also because of his darker side and more serious take. Craig was good for similar reasons. Also, I wanted to point out how hilariously bad the one is when they turn Bond into an Asian dude with plastic surgery, etc. LOL.

    Watched the spy who loved me. Definitely an improvement over golden gun. Did away with the more campy stuff and was a more streamlined and fine tuned movie. Though it's definitely not the "grittiest".

    One of the best written since on her majesties secret service. Had a little of everything. Some surprisingly good shots too. Loved jaws. This one contends. Had fun. I left wondering if this had an influence on raiders of the lost arc.
