OK I like every actor who has played James Bond (Brosnan being my best) and just felt very happy that the James Bond series is taking it self seriously. This must be after them dumb JB films from the Moore era. Don't get me wrong, Roger Moore was great as Bond, but you have to admit Moonraker was bad.

So I was wondering which is your worst Bond movie (I know its hard, but the one you dislike most). Mine is MOONRAKER :P

Thank You Fellow Bond Fans (I love you all)

yerssot
wow, that's quite a task and I think it changes due to the mood I'm in but I think TMWTGG is one of the movies on the list

Clovie

yerssot
an alcoholic beverage that has mint in it

Doc Ock
Worst Bond movie for me??

Easy.On her majesty's secret service.

Bond is played by Lazenby,he wears a kilt,he gets married,he cries.

Yuck yuck yuck!!!!!

Moonraker was pretty bad too.

The man with the golden gun would be on there too but Christopher Lee was too damn good for me to dislike that movie.

yerssot
the crying made the movie do-able imo messed

I shouldn't have to post something on topic.This thread should be consistently on topic.

You should have the common sense to take this silly banter to the PM's or some instant messanger service.

Keep it OUT of forum threads.

that's quite contradictional blink

Doc Ock
You know what I meant.

I shouldn't have to come in here and deliberately make an on topic post just to stop you and your friend spamming the thread with stupid banter.

yerssot
so, what's your worst bond film?

Doc Ock
On her majesty's secret service.

The only good thing about it was the scene where Moneypenny saves Bond from quitting.

One of Moneypenny's best scenes in the entire series.

yerssot
I thought the only good thing about it was his wife dying

Doc Ock
What when Bond cries???

No thanks.He ain't the crying type IMO wink

yerssot
Indeed, cause he's icecold... we'll see that in CR big grin

but him showing emotions was the only thing that saved the movie for me smile

Doc Ock
Who is the villain in Casino Royale???

yerssot
unfortunatly it hasn't been deceided yet... story is still in the works

Bouboumaster
On her majesty's secret service, hands down.

Follewed by Die another day

Jovan
good choice big grin

Ahnold
I'd go for "Die Another Day" as well. Even the less than stellar Roger Moore Bond films (like "AVTOK"wink have their cheesy, OTT charm, so I can still happily enjoy them on that level. "DAD", though, was just bad, and frankly I don't think I'll ever warm to it. Thank God "Casino Royale" put things back on track smile .

BUSTER1
On Her Majesty's Secret Service, without a doubt-it just didn't feel like a proper Bond movie. To me Lazenby as Bond was the same as watching David Shwimmer as Indiana Jones

darthmaul1
The worst bond movie has to be, Quantum of Solace, Licence to kill, and the world is not enough.

Darth Martin
DAD for me. AVTAK was pretty bad as well.

darthmaul1
???? DAD and AVTAK??? are you serious? DAD was one of pierces best next to tomorrow never dies, Rogers, worst one would have to be octopussy,
The bond movies need things in it to make them great, a big base to be stormed an blown up, humor, and the classic opening
also a world domination scheme, or something to threaten the world or country

Darth Martin
You and I clearly have a different view of Bond.

Kazenji
Yea Die another Day was one of Pierce's best.......WTF ?!?

I'm with Darth Martin on this, It is good watching it if you just want a bond movie but when you stack it up against the other ones that Pierce Brosnan has done its noting special.

Ahnold

Jovan
yeah, how about naming Moonraker as one of the worst movies??

Ahnold
At least you can watch films like "Moonraker" and "AVTOK" and laugh at the entertaining silliness of it all. "DAD" is just plain, well, bad ...

Nactous
Die another Day hands down. But I loved For Her Majesty's Secret Service

BAILY
Moonraker and Die Another Day ... even though many others are 'bad'... these two take the cake for sheer cheesiness that made me ashamed to be a Bond fan upon viewing

Kazenji
I like the book version of Moonraker more then the movie.

NonSensi-Klown
Casino Royale.

enlighten me... what's fun about moonraker?

Ahnold
Well ... just because a film isn't very good doesn't mean that it can't be fun. I'd much rather watch "Moonraker", with its enjoyably ridiculous space lasers, gondola hovercrafts, and double-take pigeons, than "DAD", with its hammy acting and dodgy CGI. And, in any case, there are some genuinely entertaining moments in "Moonraker" that people often forget about, like the boat chase, and Bond getting pushed out of a plane without a parachute ...

But, different strokes for different folks I guess ...

MerMorgan02
Hmmm... I cried when I saw Quantum of Solace. It wasn't that it was bad per se, it was just... choppy. And disconnected. Quoting a friend of mine, any Bond movies after the Bourne movies have just been, um, well, Bourne movies. ^__^;;;

Keehar
On her Majesty's secret service
Die Another Day
Moonraker

Allankles
The reason Bond is dated is because of movies like Quantum of Solace, DAD, Casino Royale basically too much of the same.

Her majesty's secret service by Lazenby was one of the best Bond films. It was truer to Flemming's image of Bond than the Moore and even the Connery Movies.

But meh! For some reason CR was hailed as a good Bond film what I saw was more of the same minus the gadgets and a less humane portrayal. CR and QS have a Bond without the heart of a Lazenby; cool charm of Connery and the quirky entertainment of Moore.

Worst: all the Bond movies post World is Not Enough. Moore at least was fun to watch.

I agree with your points about MoonRaker.I dont think its near as horrible as some people are making it out to be.Those moments you mentioned I thought made it very interesting.Plus how can anyone not love that boat chase scene.If you pay close attention,you'll notice that they brought back the classic Bond music from Thunderball during that boat chase scene.

Sure it was corny at times but I would say A View To A Kill was 10 times worse than MoonRaker.The thought of Bond bedding that disgusting looking thing Grace Jones just makes me barth.Then theres the horrible acting of Tonya Roberts as the bond girl.bleeh. At least Moonraker,the bind girl could act and was far prettier than Grace Jones.

You say "Her majesty's secret service by Lazenby was one of the best Bond films. It was truer to Flemming's image of Bond" but then your not happy with the more newer movies because of no gadgets, Have you even read the books ?

Its not all about gadgets in the books its him doing his mission that he gets assigned to do

Thats not to say i don't like the movies because they're not 100% accurete to the books they're still good and each actor that played the role all did one or two bond bad movies.

mastagambit
I love all the Connery versions,Roger Moore was ok,some of them unbelievable,but then the later versions with Brosnan was really over the top,my worst are...

I never cared about the gadgets maybe when I was about 10 years back in 96 I might have cared about gadgets. The issue is the Bond movies aren't adapting to newer forms of film making.

Even when the Bond movies were treated in a more light hearted spin in the Moore era they were at least fun. I was never the biggest fun of Moore but there was something about his irreverant nature that made at least appreciate most of his films.

The new Bond is more serious (a good thing) but his actions and the consequences of his actions need to have more of a long lasting and visible impact. The movies are still too unrestrained for the spy genre.

Oddly enough In Her Majesty's Secret Service captured both the best of the irreverant film Bond, and also the seriousness and sense of long lasting consequence of a good spy film.

darthmaul1
Quantum of Solace, The world is not enough, and Licence to kill.

starlock
Casino Royal,Quantum of Solace

RussellBrooks
At first when I saw The World is Not Enough, I didn't care for it much. But it grew on me later on. Robbie Coltrane was great, as usual.

The Power
I was never a fan of Licence to Kill.

gygan
MOONRAKER is my worst bond film.

ChocolateCake
I would have to say that Die Another Day is the worst in the franchise. For some reason it just didn't work.

Doc Blake
Die Another Day

MildPossession
And a horrible film to end on for Brosnan, shame really. Good bond but rubbish Bond scripts to work with for the most part.

You are so right. I was delighted when GoldenEye came out as I thought Brosnan was well cast but sadly they just did not give him the material he deserved.

DarkNemesis
Can't decide between Die Another Day and A View To A Kill. The World Is Not Enough gets an honourable mention too.

Mr Parker

yeah that was his worst outing as Bond.Horrible script and horrible casting.I know people dont agree with me on this but Halle Berry is an ugly looking dog.Wish they had cast HER as the villian and the white girl and Berrys role.would love to have seen Berry die. big grin

queeq
Must be a Roger Moore film... Live and Let Die certainly ranks high among the most boring ones.

darthmaul1
Why such hate for Die another day?? IMO it had everything in it a bond movie should (gadgets, Q, villians, women, chases, something at stake), and it flowed well.

Mr Parker
I cant speak for everyone else who mentioned it but this again is my reason below.I cant stand Halle Berry.I think she is so ugly,so for me,that was my worst Bond film.and I just wasnt impressed with the script.

I remember really wanting to go and see Moonraker when it came out at the cinema. Mum didn't think it appropriate and took me to see The Village People's "Can't Stop the Music" instead. I still think I got the better deal...

However... in all fairness it's not as bad as A View to a Kill. Especially after that terrible Octopussy affair, this film just came across to me as a rather lacklustre, "one last hurrah" opportunity that never quite had the strength to pull the string on the party poppers. Even Christopher Walken couldn't save this one. At the time I felt that the best thing about it was the title song (and I don't even like Duran Duran!).

Kazenji
Wonder what the Moonraker movie would've been like, if they used the actual plot from the novel instead of where it went going into outer space.

It would have been fantastic: nuking London is still a pretty frightening concept. However, it wouldn't have been a good Moore film - this is more like Dalton stuff...

Bric A Brac
Moonraker in my opinion.

Bouboumaster
I just saw them all in the last two weeks.
The worsts for me are:

1- Die another day: Two words - Invisible car. Also, lol at Brosnan doing surf on a tsunami.
2- Octopussy: Boring. And Moore in a clown disguise.
3- A view to a kill: Moore shouldn't had done this one. Not a "really bad" movie, like the two above, but he looks too old in this one. Max Zorin would have been awesome against Brosnan.

invisible car, k what about the car that can become a submarine and the flying car? those are ok to you? christ it's a bond movie! it should have that.
Octopussy, i'll agree with you there wasn't very exiciting

but by far the worst one of all is QOS.

Mr Parker
a coin flip between Die Another Day and On Her majestys secret service.

the ninjak
The World is Not Enough.

Is the worst Bond film I've ever seen. Why could'nt all the Brosnan films been like GoldenEye?

the one with that ugly looking monkey Halle Berry as a Bond girl. laughing sick sick sick

Aquitaine
'Diamonds Are Forever' followed closely by 'OHMSS'.
'Moonraker' I find quite OK, sure the lasers are looking naff now, but the shuttle effects and plot still work for me. Its not one of 007s best, but what really made me cringe was Jaws finding his little yellow skirted mate, rubbish.

Darth Martin
Die Another Day. Definitely.

I don't find her attractive. (No, I'm not a racist) lol

Sometimes when I tell people I don't find Halle Berry attractive they ask me if it is because she is black.

Wow i think thats the only thing that we have ever agreed on here at this site before. big grin I know,it seems here at killer movies anytime I ever rag on her how ugly she is I usually get called a racist and their actually SERIOUS about it,which is absurd because I have friends that are black. laughing

I actually find Janet Jackson for example,hot.I even sometime back I was asked by this one white dude friend of mine in REAL LIFE, if I was racist because unlike him,I dont like The Cosby Show.Never have,never will.I find it very stupid and not realistic at all is the ONLY reason I cant stand it.Matter of fact I like Bill Cosby.He is a really funny comedian,I just dont like that tv show of his.

Another example of how they look like idiots calling me racist is not only do I have friends that are black and I like Bill Cosby but I am also a HUGE fan of Sanford and Son.I love that show,it is one of my top 2 or three favorite comedys of all time and somehow I get called a racist here for saying Halle Berry is ugly.comedy gold isnt it? rolling on floor laughing laughing big grin

Just for the record that's the worst argument to prove you're not racist you can probably tell anyone.

your hysterical,you should start a comedy club. laughing laughing you just cant stand to hear someone putting down that dog Berry. laughing rolling on floor laughing laughing


your logic is so pathetic because when ALL my white friends hear me say that I hate the cosby show and then ask me if I am racist when they hear me reply back and say-"Actually no,I just find it to be stupid and not all funny.In fact I love Sanford and Son.Its one of my favorite comedys of all time and I have a few friends are black."

When THEY all hear me say that they all say-Oh I see.Yeah obviously your not.

You sure love getting egg on your face. laughing laughing laughing out loud

HeavySet
It would have to be a tie between Die Another Day and Quantum of Solace.

Blanket
It is between, Die Another Day, Quantum of Solace and Moonraker.

the ninjak
Die Another Day actually had me looking around at the audience to see what they where thinking.

I remember a guy with his face in his hands shaking horizontally.

Looking back it was a horrible film. A mockery.

There have been bad Bond films throughout the years but Brsonan films really went downhill after GoldenEye..(which rocked!).

I have to say though The World Is Not Enough was worse than Die Another Day. It was freakin unwatchable.

A shame, for Brosnan was born for the role and really put his heart into it but the writers didn't give two shits.

Tie between Die Another Day and Diamonds Are Forever.

SunRazer
On reconsideration, Diamonds Are Forever is the worst. DAD has a one-up on it because Brosnan's actually trying, whereas Connery's completely bored and looks terrible in DAF. Plus, it completely forsook the potential follow-up from OHMSS. Terrible, and campier than any of Moore's entries except Moonraker and possibly The Man With The Golden Gun.
