Live and Let Die

Live and let die - James bond movie List

For me, this is the best Moore movie of the James Bond franchise. The critics rate this movie not so high. But not me, I absolutely love this movie. Yeah, it was stupid and not classic Bond we all know.

As someone who mainly prefers the more serious/grounded Bond films Live and Let Die is the one exception where I love it despite its absolute stupidity.

I don’t know what I liked about Live and Let Die, but it was an absolute ride. It’s not like it’s completely dumb. It has amazing chase scenes, the music was phenomenal and I really like the villains of this one.

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

On Her Majesty's Secret Service - James Bond

This film often doesn’t get a lot of love. George Lasenby wasn’t an actor, and it shows at times in the film, but the overall movie itself, was way ahead of its time and holds up much better now than it did at its release.

When I watched it for the first time, I didn’t like it very much. But after rewatching it, it is one of my favorite Bond movies ever. The music and cinematography are top-notch.

Blofield might actually be the greatest Bond villain ever in my opinion. I have the urge to watch On Her Majesty’s Secret Service while writing this.

Goldeneye

Goldeneye - James Bond

Personally, my favorite Brosnan movie. I liked Pierce Brosnan as James Bond, but his movie never clicked with me. But, Goldeneye was an exception.

I can put this movie just for the tank scene because it was that amazing. You can say that James Bond regained his form with Goldeneye. I still think that Alec Trevelyan is the most credible Bond villain ever.

He was equal to Bond in every aspect, which made this movie so much better than it actually was.

Goldfinger

Goldfinger - 007 Movies List

It is a solid movie except for that one infamous scene. Bond being out of his depth and essentially incapacitated for half the movie is interesting and different, the evil plot is great and revealed deliciously late into the film.

And of course, the gadgets, women, stunts, and photography are all revolutionary in their own way. The golden paint scene is fantastic. I know that that one scene is so tasteless and the movie could have been 100 times better if that scene wasn’t in the movie.

From Russia With Love

From Russia with Love

I said that Alec Trevelyan was the most credible Bond villain ever. And From Russia With love might be the most credible Bond movie ever. It was completely believable from the start to the end.

The movie looks beautiful from a direction point of view. The shots of Istanbul are absolutely beautiful. The cinematography goes from dark, murky, and grimy to bright at the drop of a hat.

And I think the best thing might be that even the movie is intense from the get-go, it gives the audience a proper chance to breathe and take it all in. Undoubtedly, the best Bond movie before the Craige era.

Casino Royale

Casino Royale - James Bond

Finally, we are into the serious business territory. If you only want to see one Bond film, this is the one. A soft reboot, this movie is as close to perfect as you can get.

We see Bond obtain his 00 licenses, and through the events in the movie, we see why Bond becomes the cold-hearted bastard we know and love. It is such a deliberate movie.

The details and plot of the movie are impeccable. It deals with the psychological aspects that we don’t usually see in Bond movies. You can say that it is the best Bond movie ever, and I won’t argue.

Skyfall

Skyfall - James 007

Personally, my favorite Bond movie ever. I still have a hard time deciding between Casino Royale and Skyfall. Skyfall was a return to form after Quantum of Solace’s failure.

Skyfall, even though it continues the whole “Bond goes rogue” thing we’ve seen played out over and over, really helps cement Craig as one of the best actors to ever play 007.

So, these were our picks for the 7 best James Bond movies ever. What is your favorite James Bond movie? Let us know down below and for more lists like these keep following Webseriesreview.
