Good ranking, dm. Switch GF with DAF and it becomes better still.

Live and Let Die at number two...? For nostalgia perhaps?

The only things awesome about that film are Martin/McCartney, Yaphet Kotto and Madeline Smith's knockers. Everything else is pretty dire..

Benign Bizarre in spades--so to speak--TeeHee, Whisper, tremendous costumes and choreography in the voodoo scenes, cracking good humor, and I like Pepper. Not that I rate it No.2, mark you.

It's like FielsMan said, it's more out of nostalgia. It's one of the first Bond movies I saw as a child. It had all the ingredients: crazy henchman, good humor, roger moore in one of his best performances and a great theme song. And it's also the first time I saw a 'making off' of a Bond movie. As a child I was very impressed by the stunt man running over crocodiles. I still am, actually.

I love the crocodiles part and Macca's song, but the rest is just repackaged Bond tarted up in cheap sitcom humour and nasty-ass American hijinks. Goes over like a lead balloon.

Lol, no offense of course. Any man who rates OHMSS first can't be all bad.

I'm one of the few people who thinks LALD would've been dramatically better if they trimmed off about a third of the boat chase and limited J.W. Salt'n'Pepper's screentime to a sum total of, I dunno, about ten seconds.

I like the JW Pepper and Mrs. Bell scenes. That humour works for me, and I don't really find the boat chase too long.

What slows the film down for me is the first act or so. After the awesome car without a driver scene, the film grinds to a halt. From there on till Rosy dies, it's slow, cheesy and dated.

I will grant that the boat chase is a bit overlong, but it doesn't bother me as much now as it used to, for some reason.

Really? It's usually the other way around.

"But, I guess, when one's young it seems very easy to decipher boat chases directed by Marc Forster. But as one gets older it becomes more difficult. The villains and the heroes get all mixed up." - René Mathis‎.

As you get older, you prefer slower boat chases.

He meant GODENEYE. It certainly has its flaws, but it's by far and away the best of the Brosnans.

I have to admit, I copied this from another Bond website, but I think this is great.

Dr No- On Her Majesty's Secret Service Golden Age
Diamonds Are Forever- Moonraker Silver Age
For Your Eyes Only - Licence To Kill Bronze Age
Goldeneye - Die Another Day Sewage!

(Dont agree with the 2 Daltons in the Bronze section though).
