    I had to watch Octopussy about 100 times because my older brother liked it. I watched many James Bond movies as a child/young teen because of my brother, most likely all of them. I went back to watch every James Bond movie in order and my husband and I kept falling asleep. We finally decided we just couldn't take it anymore.

    I never watched pierce, I just couldn't see him as Bond. I did watch the Craig movies and I enjoyed them until the keira knightley lip thing started bothering me. Neither of them should ever hold their mouths in that weird fake pouty look. Ever again.



    I guess they've both had their lips done. Apparently I don't like the "fake lip" look.

    Incidentally I could never tell the difference between any of the bond guys as a kid. I thought they were all the same person.

    I voted for Sean. It was his sexiness...it got to me.

    I believe Daniel Craig nailed the character in Skyfall. He was extremely comfortable in it and I cannot imagine any other Bond actor (other than maybe Timothy Dalton) playing Bond the way Craig did in it which suited the character and the movie so well.

    In order of best to worst:
    1. Roger Moore
    2. Pierce Brosnan
    3. Daniel Craig
    4. Sean Connery
    5. Timothy Dalton
    6. George Lazenby


    Why is the original Bond ranked so low? It's not because Connery was a bad Bond, it's because so many of his movies were unappealing, although he also did some of the best Bond movies, such as Goldfinger, You Only Live Twice, and Diamonds are Forever.

    My first exposure to Bond was Roger Moore and I grew up in the Brosnan generation, so that might have something to do with it.

    Daniel Craig would rank higher if only he got the opportunity to star in a campy Bond movie rather than a serious and "realistic" one.

    Roger Moore on top? Please!

    He made James Bond look like the English/MI6's version of Jacques Clouseau.

    And he also happened to have the funnest movies, like The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker. In fact, the only demerit I can place on TSWLM was the godawful disco music score. But the villain in TSWLM had a fucking underwater city! Who wouldn't love to be him?!?

    Moore and Brosnan are also tied for having the coolest cars (the Lotus Esprit in TSWLM and the BMW in Tomorrow Never Dies (although I guess you can argue that it's awfully like the Aston Martin in The Living Daylights, but TND was a funner movie overall)...and the Aston Martin in Die Another Day would've been cooler if they had a more imaginative chase scene; it seemed like wasted potential to have an invisible car doing such limited spy work).

    I do feel bad for Brosnan in the voting.
    He didn't win any first-placers.

    He wasn't a bad Bond.
    He just really wasn't what one would imagine as Bond.

    Even more surprising is that George Lazenby did get a first place.

    I wonder if that was just because of the movie he was associated with.

    I wonder if it's just because that person is a snob and just likes to choose the unpopular option just because. And OHMSS was not that good, although it had a classic Bond pun: "He had a lot of guts!" Bond says after a henchman skis into a snowblower.
