I mean Roger Moore was witty, and Daniel Craig is bad ass, and Pierce Brosnan is just Pierce, but Connery is where the inspiration to find the next good bond comes from!!

but that's just because he was the first, so he is always the best bond...

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.


couldn't have said it better myself

Err no Moore was farrrrrrrrrr better.if Moore had been the first Bond to have played the role,he would NEVER have had people criticise him like they did after he took over.He only gets it because people hated to see Connery go and they wanted Moore to be just like him which is impossible,which Moore knew so he brought his own unique and cool style to the table.also Moore and conney are the two best Bonds to have ever played the role.any true james Bond fan knows that if you go to any james bond forum that it always comes down between moore and connery as to who was the best bond with connery usually always winning.

Connery is the Bond by which all others are judged by and always will be..I liked Craig, I think he id a good job at portraying Bond in the beginning..A cold,overconfident bastard...

yes he did and no that was Brosnan that made it rediculous. roll eyes (sarcastic) Like that other guy said so well,Brosnan was just being Brosnan,Moore at least portrayed Bond.you know that you just dont like Moore cause he replaced the legendary Connery you did not want to see go.you can deny it all you want,but your just fooling yourself.we both know that if Moore was the first,you wouldnt have nothing bad to say about him as Bond.If Moore had been the first Bond,HE would be the one that every Bond fan "including yourself" would be judging as the standard for Bond to live up to his greatness and not Connerys.

Personally, I'm not a fan of Moore. He wasn't terrible, but to me he was never that memorable either. I'd put him in the bottom three if I were to make a list. Dalton and Lazenby at the bottom, then Moore probably.

im alone in this, and im fine with it..but as much as i like the charisma Connery has, and let show in his Bond..
Dalton is my favourite - he had the hard job of following Moore - the very hard job, but his Bond to me was bloody awsome.
First half of Living Daylights ws the start of one of the best spy movies ever btw, only midway through the 2nd act did it go all..Bond.

Dalton
Moore
Craig

-others

Okay that's fair.that's reasonable.that's being much more reasonable than Tovan has been.To say he was terrible is just being idiotic,ludicrous and ignorant.But to say he wasn't memorable,then yeah,that's fair and I got no problem with that,its just when people go and say ludicrous things like he was horrible and ridiculous is when I have a problem with their posts cause as i said before,they carefully screened him and several actors as well before making the good decision to replace Connery with Moore before making the selection of Moore.They took a look at all the other work Moore did as an actor first which he did a lot of film work before Bond before making their decision.

They wanted to make sure they had a very good actor to carry it on before they resumed the Bond films.I recently re-watched all the connery/moore bond movies,some of them I hadn't seen in at least 10 years,others as long as 20 so I didn't remember some of them very well.Now after recently re-watching them all again,I noticed that of all the connery/moore bond films,octopussy with moore is the ONLY Bond movie where Bond gets angry over what a villain is about to do when he says-I am more concerned with that missile going off at an American air force base.I suppose that this little accident you have planned,that it doesnt even matter to you that thousands of innocent people will be killed? and then later when he is trying to stop the bomb from going off,he says-Damnit let me go,there's a bomb in there.I got goosebumps over the way he delivered his lines.

He showed he can do drama very well.Cause I have seen films before where an actor has said similiar lines to that effect cause the situation was similiar and they were very unconvincing to me in the way they delivered their lines during those tense moments,failing to give me goosebumps during that time like Moore did. smile

by Tovan I take you mean Jovan (me) smile

Well, the reason I don't like Moore at all is because (perhaps he couldn't help about it though) the movies he made were rediculous. Connery played it serious with a humorous tone here and there... with Moore it's humor with here and there a fragment of storyline. To me Bond is a spy, dark and gritty and compensates sometimes with a humorous line here and there. Moore (or at least the scripts he got) took it WAY too far.
The reason people don't like Dalton is because he brought it back to being serious...
Than you have Brosnan continuing that line but returning to silly with Die Another Day and than you Craig doing serious again and people love it (again).
Funny to see the trend here in my opinion big grin

Here's the secret to these kinds of debates:

Most of the time, when people say they pref x actor in x role is because it was the one they saw first.

It's the same thing for any long running movie or TV series.

For example, with Star Trek those who like Picard started with Picard as their first captain. So on and so forth.

It's the same thing with James Bond.

I like Moore and Brosnan best. They seem more grittier than a lot of Connerys.
