Patrick, you are disqualified from this game. May the spirit of Roald Dahl haunt your forever more. And a couple of hours longer.

Your question has been answered: we now know for a fact that you won't concur with every one of my reviews.

Can I at least go "Hai!" a few times and blame it on the third Doctor?

I don't think there's much that me and Patrick will agree on - I'm getting the impression he prefers the less silly end of the franchise, whereas that's where I think the charm lies. I think A View to a Kill is useless... we in a similar ballpark there?

Well, I love a good spy thriller, but I don't think it's the serious vs. silly stuff in the Bond franchise that bothers me. I'll go into this in greater detail when I get to my reviews of Thunderball and You Only Live Twice, but what consistently frustrates me are the plot holes in some of these storylines.

I didn't mind A View To A Kill, such as it was, but I was disappointed that so much of the big plan was full of ideas heavily borrowed from Goldfinger.

Dr. No; From Russia With Love; Goldfinger; On Her Majesty's Secret Service; Live and Let Die; The Man With the Golden Gun; The Spy Who Loved Me; The Living Daylights; Goldeneye; The World Is Not Enough; Casino Royale;

Quantum of Solace- what a letdown after casino royale. craig does a good job but the story is forgettable, -something about water?- the music, girls and villain are all pretty unmemorable.

a few decent set pieces but that's about it - i'm hoping for a lot better next time around.

Dr. No; Goldfinger; On Her Majesty's Secret Service; Live and Let Die; The Man With the Golden Gun; The Spy Who Loved Me; The Living Daylights; Goldeneye; The World Is Not Enough; Casino Royale;

From Russia With Love. At a 3/5 it's probably the weakest left.

it's probably the most stylish of them all- a couple of great villains in grant and klebb, fantastic istanbul locations....probably not at the absolute top but near enough....i'd put it above dr no personally....

I was just watching The Spy Who Loved Me last night. The audio commentary features Lewis Gilbert and Sir Ken Adam. Sir Ken is a set designing genius. Did you know that in order to properly light that set- because it was so big- Ken secretly brought Stanley Kubrick in as a consultant?

Alrighty then...

Dr. No; Goldfinger; On Her Majesty's Secret Service; Live and Let Die; The Living Daylights; Goldeneye; The World Is Not Enough; Casino Royale;

The gold has started turning green on The Man With The Golden Gun- arguably the weakest of the films remaining.

Live and Let Die. How strange that one of the weakest Moore's is the last to go.

Of the four remaining, hmm. Tough choice.

Goldfinger; On Her Majesty's Secret Service; Goldeneye

The World Is Not Enough. In a lot of ways, it's paying direct homage to OHMSS, but I had a hard time coming to accept Sophie Moreau as a villain, and an even harder time thinking Denise Richards could act.
