I love the debates that take place on the internet regarding who was the best Bond and people giving their views, insights, and opinions!! Makes for great debates and discussion. I compare it to historians trying to play that old parlor game, "Worst President in American History."

There's really no answer to who indeed the best Bond was. However, i must say that i do agree that Connery may be abit overated. I'm always maintained that the Roger Moore Bond films for me are the most entertaing!! I never get tired of watching those. That doesn't mean Moore was the best, just think his films are the most entertaining.

LOVED Casino Royale!!!! Can't wait to see
Craig in his next Bond Film!!!!

I didn't like Craig as Bond. He's more of an Arni or Sly type hero. The man's got the best moves I've ever seen for the James Bond character. but to put it nicely, the man is just to rough around the edges to play James Bond. Not that i dislike him though.

Connery for me was just a natural. Of all the actors, he just looked like his charm was natural. He didn't look like he was trying too hard. Its just a shame that he got old. I would have loved to see him young, in our generation, playing a new bond flick. Imagine what they could do with the tech man.

Craig will become more suave and slick as the series progresses, adding some dark humor here and there.


Remember, he's playing Bond at the beginning of his career as a spy.

For me I preferred Sean Connery rather than Daniel Craig. I think Craig is the worst Bond ever.

i've always considered Roger Moore the greatest Bond personally, but that's not to say Connery wasnt great. He's a legend - mostly because he can get away with a Scottish accent in every film he's been in stick out tongue

I prefer Roger Moore, he's my fav for sure. I did like Casino Royale, it's probably one of my...top 5 bond films, I think Craig did a rather good job at playing Bond, he wasn't perfect but he wasn't bad either

Added dimension to the character of bond laughing laughing

more like made a complete joke of the character, The only decent ones he's ever did is live and let die, man with the golden gun and For your eyes only

also this is coming from somone who's actually been reading the novels

Sean Connary and the latest bond craig is the closest thing to the character itself imo

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.


He doesnt have a British accent? :s hes Scottish, I live in Scotland... as far as i knew it was in britain. hmmm whole life has been a lie no expression Connery was born for that role, there could be no other original bond in my eyes.

And who cares if he was'nt english its not like the first time something like that has happen probably many more situations like that has happen

Take recently with the X-men films with wolverine he's canadian but yet they got a australian actor to play him, Where they come from has nothing to do with SnakeEyes its more can they act the part

And on the topic snake eyes would you rather Moore continued to play Bond he was british.........oh he also made bond a complete joke.

only an idiot goes to a thread that has NOTHING whatsoever to do with me and says crap like-"wow a mr parker supporter." like you just recently did.you CLEARLY cant get over a discussion that took place over a year ago about a movie.now thats an idiot.

AGAIN as I just said,if that was a newbies post,you wouldnt have said that.you said that because your STILL obviously hung up over a movie debate from at LEAST a year ago which is pathetic.you proved that with that uncalled for and recent childish comment of -"wow a mr parker supporter." recently in the movie discussion section.

A thread that had absolutely NOTHING to do with me.AGAIN by not commenting on what ANYBODY else said here,and that childish comment in that movie discussion section,you obviously have an obsession with me.If this had been from someone else who doesnt thave an obsession with me,I would have bothered addressing them,but YOU clearly have an irrational obsession with me you cant get over proving it with that childish and uncalled for comment on that thread that had NOTHING to do with me in the movie discussion section.thanks for showing how the man-spider fans are idiots kid with your irrational obsession you have with me.

I saw a thread about our favourite Sam Raimi films and it would seem Kazenji, does have a little obsession with man-spider lol, I mean the "Mr Parker fan" comment was totally uncalled for and it just looks like your looking for an argument lol, I think perhaps you two should just stop talking to each other stick out tongue
