I 'guess' Dalton too; although until recent years I've never been able to follow most of the Bond films I watch. The information (people's names, geographic locations, political affiliations, or even visuals cues such as "now the key is in his pocket") just flows WAY too f-ing fast for me.

I enjoyed both Casino Royal and Quantum of Solace. And of course Goldfinger is a longtime classic.

This year I've finally begun Netflixing all the movies, and I've just finished You Only Live Twice a couple nights ago. On Her Majesty's Secret Service is next.

But when I watch, I turn the subtitles ON. And keep the << button on my remote ALWAYS handy. It's the only way I ever get through these things.

I have never seen a Pierce Brosnan 007. I'll probably see Skyfall next week sometime.

If you do see a James Bond film starring Pierce Brosnan, GoldenEye is a must. The director of Casino Royale also directed it. Ironically, those are both the debut Bond films for each actor.

Would you say Goldeneye is worth a blind buy?

I'm assuming most of them are not, and I generally don't believe in the concept. However the BluRay is one of those 'exclusives'... I think either Target or Walmart has it. And who knows whether the exclusives will still be available by the time I've Netflixed all 22.

I just got Goldfinger and You Only Live Twice from BestBuy. Just now. Made sure the former was a 'newer' copy with artwork consistent with the latter. I don't like the generic artwork on those older Blus. Oh, and they came with ticket coupons, so it looks like I'm definitely dragging my Dad to Skyfall here in the near future...

If I may chip in, 'Goldeneye' is probably 50/50 on a blind buy.

It's one of the better of the Brosnan films (actually possibly the best though I do kind of like 'The World is Not Enough' plotwise) but visually it has dated quite a bit from 1995 thanks to the modelwork now showing itself up in places as terribly obvious. That's the only slight thing that pulls me out of it a little.

Though I recently read a rumour for the first time that 'Goldeneye' was originally written for Dalton to play before the legal issues caused the gap from '89 to '95. Which might explain some aspects of it over Brosnan's other outings.

If Dalton were to be in GoldenEye the film was to be called The Property of a Lady. Sadly he stepped down from the role due to the long wait and constant deadline changes in production. It would have been cool seeing Dalton as Bond for a third time. But in the end, it was ultimately his choice to step down from the part.
