I don't agree. Goldfinger is considered the best if not one of the very best Bond films--the same goes with Kahn. Why tinker with the best? I think it's a perfect example. So there . . . .

I'm talking about the films, not the novels. However, you are correct--the novels were much different.

Sorry. Connery is always better than Moore--read page 50 of the "Man Book."

I think Moore was his best in his first 3 outings as Bond. By the time of Cotopussy he was tired, and it shows, for me.

For Goldfinger is #2, Dr. No is #1 in my book. I also tend to look at From Russia With Love and Goldfinger as 1 continuiung story.

Goldfinger's considered the best in a hip, spectacular, culturally defining ultimate 'Bond Movie' way but From Russia with Love is regarded by many as the best Bond movie.

Totally agree with you both about Connery/Moore but I'm talking about the quality of the overall movie. Moore's first 2 films were embarrassing. Octopussy is by far one of the better Moore films; spectacular cinematography; classy location work; exiting, tightly composed, topical plot. Apart from the cheesy one-liners every 10 seconds and grandpa Moore it was pure class.
Sorry- I love Bond!

Now Live And Let Die hasn't aged well, but it was hip and cool in it's time. But Morre's acting was great.
Man With The Golden Gun to me is very underrated, it has it's goofy moments, but all Bond films do.
He hit his stride well in The Spy Who Loved Me, but a poor script really held him back in Moonraker.
I'm on the fence about For Your Eyes Only...
But by Octopussy, his heart just wasn't in it anymore, in my opinion.
A View To A Kill, Walken totally ran away with that film. Moore could have called in his part.
