James Bond woos a mob boss's daughter and goes undercover to uncover the true reason for Blofeld's allergy research in the Swiss Alps that involves beautiful women from around the world. (142 mins.)
Director: Peter Hunt
“ The best Bond of all time, emotionally engaging, realistic action sequences, and the first time we can ever believe in Bond as a real character. Lazenby is amazing, an outstanding theme tune, great locations, Diana Rigg...never gets old, this film. And the ending still gets me every time... ” - Clockwork-Avacado
From Russia with Love (1963)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
James Bond willingly falls into an assassination ploy involving a naive Russian beauty in order to retrieve a Soviet encryption device that was stolen by SPECTRE. (115 mins.)
Director: Terence Young
“ Close between this and goldfinger, but Red Grant is still the ultimate Bond villain. It never gets closer to Fleming than this. ” - Clockwork-Avacado
Goldfinger (1964)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
Investigating a gold magnate's smuggling, James Bond uncovers a plot to contaminate the Fort Knox gold reserve. (110 mins.)
Director: Guy Hamilton
“ Amazing. The absolute height of Bondmania, and the film which was responsible for the series taking off. Oddjob, Pussy Galore...what more could you want? ” - Clockwork-Avacado
GoldenEye (1995)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
James Bond teams up with the lone survivor of a destroyed Russian research center to stop the hijacking of a nuclear space weapon by a fellow agent formerly believed to be dead. (130 mins.)
Director: Martin Campbell
“ Somehow, Brosnan 's first is one of the best ever Bonds, and yet none of his others even came vaguely close. This has scope, a personal confrontation for Bond with an evil version of himself, the ultimate conflict (so what if the end borrows from Empire Strikes Back?) This was Bond back in action like we wanted him, plus the best villainess ever in the series. ” - Clockwork-Avacado
For Your Eyes Only (1981)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Agent 007 is assigned to hunt for a lost British encryption device and prevent it from falling into enemy hands. (127 mins.)
Director: John Glen
“ Not generally held in high regard, but for me, this is John Glen's best movie by far, with some epic snow stunts form WB again. Believable, and only occasionally lapsing into stupidity, this is Roger Moore at his most competent, and the ending is still incredible to watch. Topol is a little weak though... ” - Clockwork-Avacado
You Only Live Twice (1967)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
Agent 007 and the Japanese secret service ninja force must find and stop the true culprit of a series of spacejackings before nuclear war is provoked. (117 mins.)
Director: Lewis Gilbert
“ A little patchy, but with the best Bond song of all. A lot of good stuff in thisalthough sadly, Connery is going a bit by this point. But still, a strong movie. ” - Clockwork-Avacado
Quantum of Solace (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
James Bond descends into mystery as he tries to stop a mysterious organization from eliminating a country's most valuable resource. All the while, he still tries to seek revenge over the death of his love. (106 mins.)
Director: Marc Forster
“ I may be the only person in the world who thinks this is much better than Casino Royale, but for me, this was a good all round action film, although Craig still disappoints me; a fine actor, but really not Bond. But the pre-credits sequence is great, as is the chase after the creds. ” - Clockwork-Avacado
A View to a Kill (1985)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
An investigation of a horse-racing scam leads 007 to a mad industrialist who plans to create a worldwide microchip monopoly by destroying California's Silicon Valley. (131 mins.)
Director: John Glen
“ Almost universally disliked, I personally think this is a great movie, with arguably Roger Moore at his least comedic. Some great threat scenes, especially the fire in the lift, and the pre credits sequence is awesome. Forget the California Girls. Grace Jones, as well. Even SS isn't that bad. Sometimes... ” - Clockwork-Avacado
The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
James Bond investigates the hijacking of British and Russian submarines carrying nuclear warheads with the help of a KGB agent whose lover he killed. (125 mins.)
Director: Lewis Gilbert
“ The best Pre credits sequence of all time. BB is a good Bond girl also. And we can even take Jaws seriously, on occasion. Caroline Munro. A cool remix of the Bond theme. Stylish, but a little flat in places. ” - Clockwork-Avacado
The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
James Bond is led to believe that he is targeted by the world's most expensive assassin while he attempts to recover sensitive solar cell technology that is being sold to the highest bidder. (125 mins.)
Director: Guy Hamilton
“ Christopher Lee. Some great one liners. Britt Ekland. A lot of good things about this, generally regarded as one of the poorest (In terms of grosses), but it's one of the last times Bond would face a single great adversary, which lends a personal dimension to this movie which the Ken Adams blowing stuff up movies lack. Awful song, though... ” - Clockwork-Avacado
The Living Daylights (1987)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
James Bond is living on the edge to stop an evil arms dealer from starting another world war. Bond crosses all seven continents in order to stop the evil Whitaker and General Koskov. (130 mins.)
Director: John Glen
“ Not a massive Dalton fan, but I love the Rock of Gibraltar stuff at the start; epic song as well, one of the best. But every time, the Cello case scene annoys me. Plus, the villains are very poor. But not too bad. It has its' moments. But that "horse's arse" line isn't one of them... ” - Clockwork-Avacado
Dr. No (1962)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
A resourceful British government agent seeks answers in a case involving the disappearance of a colleague and the disruption of the American space program. (110 mins.)

“ The original. Still disappointing,although it arguably makes the best use of the Bond theme out of all the movies. Nothing special, but not as bad as... ” - Clockwork-Avacado
Live and Let Die (1973)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
007 is sent to stop a diabolically brilliant heroin magnate armed with a complex organization and a reliable psychic tarot card reader. (121 mins.)
Director: Guy Hamilton
“ Massively surprised that this got voted best Bond movie of all time this year by Starburst. Overlong chase sequences, awful theme song, and an uninspiring heroine/villainess in Solitaire. Some great one liners though, and Mr Big is one of Moore's best villains. An unforgiveably average film... ” - Clockwork-Avacado
Casino Royale (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
Armed with a licence to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007 and must defeat a weapons dealer in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, but things are not what they seem. (144 mins.)
Director: Martin Campbell
“ Daniel Craig is probably the poorest Bond of all, and this goes to prove it. Feels nothing like a Bond, pointlessly grim, but with no emotional core. Good action sequences, but overlong, and with a disposable storyline, and no memorable incidental characters. But, it's the only good theme song of this century of Bonds... ” - Clockwork-Avacado
Moonraker (1979)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
James Bond investigates the mid-air theft of a space shuttle and discovers a plot to commit global genocide. (126 mins.)
Director: Lewis Gilbert
“ Not as bad as most people make out, but as a Bond fan, this rankles. Some good stunts, but we can never really get involved with this jokey film, never exemplified more than in the pre creds; great stunt, terrible comedy punchline. And Holly... ” - Clockwork-Avacado
Octopussy (1983)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X

Director: John Glen
“ Maud Adams is back, a handful of nice stunts, but this is a very lifeless film, filled with half hearted humour from John Glen, a forgettable song, no great characters and a samey series of threats. For me, this feels like an eighties TV movie, not a Bond film. And that's bad... ” - Clockwork-Avacado
Licence to Kill (1989)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X

Director: John Glen
“ Dalton at his worst. A crime thriller in the Die HArd style. Anyone who thinks of this as a Bond film must be insane. Pathetic, pointlessly gory, tedious, terrible song...and tacky as anything. After the credits, nothing worth watching. ” - Clockwork-Avacado
The World Is Not Enough (1999)

Director: Michael Apted
“ Another terrible Brosnan film, with mindless stunts, poor acting, no storyline, a terrible song. Best enjoyed in the same way you enjoy a voluntary lobotomy. Don't think about it, and it'll soon be over. But, better than some, and it does have one or two good sequences. ” - Clockwork-Avacado
