"I have to concur. For years I was not fond of Timothy Dalton's Bond at all. I must admit, however, that I believe his movies age wonderfully. Moreover, to your point, I went back and reviewed his two films and it seems to me that he was doing…"

"I had a Isla del Sol (by Drew Estate) the other day that I bought from a Cigar/Coffee shop.  It is a mild, sugar-tipped and infused with coffee, which made for a very interesting flavor.  At about 3/4 through, it tasted more like a regular…"

"I know Dalton is not Popular, but as someone who has scene all incarnations of bond, including one where he was american, and has read and re-read all of the books.  I really think that Dalton's Bond was the closest to what Ian Fleming…"

"I'll throw in my latest sticks: Undercrown, Romeo by Romeo Y Julieta, and a Tatuaje Miami  Great smokes all around. I can't afford to partake in the better stuff so I need to find the cheap gems"

"Moonraker is the best Bond film I have seen. I still need to see The Living Daylights and Quantum of Solace."

Dann Anthony replied to Cole Jacobs's discussion Best bond movie in the group James Bond Appreciation Club
"I appreciated how closely Goldfinger stuck to the book. Then again, Maybe the producers just used up the better books early and had to rework the other titles. "The Spy Who Loved Me" took place entirely in some roadside motel, if I recall…"

"That is a fine film. Especially so consideriding the complications that went with its production and the problems that Connery was having with the producers."

"I'm trying to decide on my favorite Fleming inspired film, and think I have to choose You Only Live Twice. As well as the obligatory mention of Goldfinger."

"She was special, by damn. I give Roger Moore props; according to the commentary on the FYEO DVD, he said something like "Please don't make me seduce that child onscreen," concerning the skier Bibi who threw herself at Bond. Moore…"

"Surprised not a lot of fans for You Only Live Twice, probably my second favorite of the Connery movies"

"Well come on, For Your Eyes Only had one of the hottest Bond girls of all time(well, in my opinion that brunette is unreal hot) paired with the really awkward 2CV car chase."

Dann Anthony replied to Cole Jacobs's discussion Best bond movie in the group James Bond Appreciation Club
"Yeah - an invisible car? Changing the villain's race from Korean to Anglo with a lengthy and agonizing DNA "transplant"? A great Bond that never was is Clive Owen. He's more in line with Fleming's conception than is Craig,…"

Neil H replied to Cole Jacobs's discussion Best bond movie in the group James Bond Appreciation Club
"As Brosnan was my first Bond, I hold a certain place for him. But I have to agree about Die Another Day. I think Brosnan did fine as playing the role, but the writing and directing ruined the film. I think they went down the wrong path when they…"

Michael Malloy replied to Cole Jacobs's discussion Best bond movie in the group James Bond Appreciation Club
"Die Another Day indeed bordered on being an exploitation film with a 1950s comicbook plot, and Halle Berry stole the show with her girl-power kungfu moves and cheesy one liners that should have remained in the Moore era! Nice set of legs, mind..…"

Dann Anthony replied to Cole Jacobs's discussion Best bond movie in the group James Bond Appreciation Club
"I'm with you there - thought Dalton was absolutely the right guy for the role, even if the flicks took a wrong turn. There was a canine quality to him that made Bond a kind of juggernaut, the way Connery was. And Dalton was a fine actor,…"

Michael Malloy replied to Cole Jacobs's discussion Best bond movie in the group James Bond Appreciation Club
"I wouldn't call them the best in terms of plot, direction, effects and general artistic merit.. but the two Dalton films (The Living Daylights and License To Kill) strike me as amazing films. It showed the jaded, vengeful and renegade aspect of…"
