Alright, so many people look at Sean Connery as their favorite Bond, but I guess I just don't see why, other than the fact that he was the first Bond. But it's always kind of annoyed me when people like the original the best SIMPLY because it is the original.
I'm not saying Connery was a bad Bond at all, I liked him a good deal... but I still don't understand what would make him the best. I mean, he doesn't even have a British accent.
Uh Connery is a legend as an actor because he is a great actor and was an excellent Bond as well.I personally like Roger Moore the best because he brought an added dimension to the character with his humor and wit and also did an outstanding job portraying the character of James Bond.Moore is my favorite with Connery second.
Sean Connery was the original Bond and set the benchark for the Bond series. He had the elegance and charisma that Bond should have, but at the same time wasnt afraid to get his hand dirty when the need presented itself. I personally think that he had everything that Bond should have, perfectly suited to the role. I never get tired of his magnificent accent either.
Moore however is a very close second. His and Christopher Lee's performance in The Man With The Golden Gun was nothing short of astounding.
Why? Because simply, he is James Bond. When i think on bond, i think on connery. Not only he was and he is a amazing actor, he has the look, the charm, the charisma,etc to play bond perfectly. Only see his first scene in doctor no saying" bond, james bond". Man, that guy IS james bond. He was perfect and the best bond ever. Roger Moore did a great job too playing another style of bond, his own style , that worked very well, except in his last movies when he was too old.

Connery is overrated (as James Bond). His films simply aren't the best, although From Russia... is probably somewhere in the top 5. I still like the rest of his movies, though. There's no such thing as a non-entertaining Bond movie.
My favorite Bonds:
1: Daniel Craig
2: Pierce Brosnan
3: Roger Moore
4: Sean Connery
5: Tim dalton
6: George Lazenby
I love Roger Moore's Bond because he did away with the cold blooded hitman theme and made Bond more human and compassionate. I also loved the humour. Sure, this is not the Bond people wanted to see, but I thought it was a cool and different interpretation that still worked within the formula. With that said, I'm cool with Daniel Craig returning Bond to his old self, because he did it so incredibly well.
I just didnt think he was a good choice for Bond. I didnt feel he had the same sort of suave attitude that Bond should have. Flirting should come natural to Bond but Craig made it seemed rather forced. Also I think he took the ruthless, hitman side of Bond to far and that ruined the experience - for me anyway. I am stuck in my ways with a Brosnan looking Bond with the Connery attitude. Craig fell short on both accounts.
Havn't seen the new film yet but will probably try and view it next week or so but I agree with you saying the Brosnan look and Connery attitude. When I think of Bond I think of the look of Brosnan(or Connery, but usually Brosnan first) and Connery attitude. I think all of the actors bring something to the table as far as making a perfect all-around Bond.

I could be wrong, but isn't Bond's flirting a bit of a facade? Casino Royale showed him as he was in the beginning: an overly arrogant but not TOO competent male chauvinist pig. He was humbled when he found love, and then it spat him in the face. The result is the Bond we all know: an experienced hitman who enjoys a good shag but refuses to let anyone get close. Yet, he's still very much human. Imo, Craig did a great job of showing how Bond became that kind of person.
Connery was damn good. There's no disputing. He had it all, though some others did some things better then him, he had all of everything Bond needed to be.
I hated Moore, I'm not afraid to say it. Too cocky, but not in a good way, not believable at all for me, he was more of a court jester then James Bond IMO. Although he was in some decent movies.
Brosnan was good in the first couple Bonds he was in, the last few sucked though, but I mostly think it was the movie and not his fault. Goldeneye is my favorite Bond ever.
Dalton was just "meh" to me, not exciting, nothing special, didn't really like the movies he was in either. Although he did have his moments.
Lazenby is a joke and I try to forget he ever existed.
Craig was an awesome Bond, prolly the best overall other then Connery. He looks like he could kill you before you could blink, hes not nice, hes not pleasant, hes a cold heartless killer. He is the most believable Bond of them all, though he was missing a bit of humor.
