Timothy Dalton sucked horribly (great actor, just not right as Bond). George Lazenby's single turn as 007 was very memorable. And Pierce Brosnan is my second favorite after Connery. I always thought he should have been the next Bond since I first saw him on Remmington Steele. And I have yet to see a Daniel Craig Bond film, so I'll reserve judgement for later.
Totally agree. One of the best Bond movies IMO is From Russia With Love. Great spy flick and really set the formula for most Bond movies afterwards, even more so than Dr. No. Another great, much later Bond movie was Goldeneye. Always liked that one. A great way to reboot the franchise after Dalton and Brosnan was a great Bond, still had a few movies left in him I think. Only problem is after Goldeneye the Brosnan movies became more a more cheesy.
I like Craig, thought Casino was another great way to reboot the franchise but what followed just didn't do it for me. Wasn't too big a fan of Quantum, hoping the next will be better.
