So...which is the best if "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" isn't?

I'm going with Casino Royale because of the parkour scene, namely the part where the runner does some jump through a tiny hole...and Bond runs THROUGH a piece of drywall. Older Bonds had some weird gadget to cut a person shaped hole in the wall or they'd attempt a similar jump, and...impossibly, succeed.

Of course, the parkour scene was just awesome period.

The Best Bond Film has to be The first one. Dr. No because James Bond is a baccarat player not a poker player. In the novel Casino Royale it is baccarat Bond is playing not Poker. They just turned the game into poker because of the Poker craze. I got to think that The Spy Who Loved Me is up there as well.

You're both wrong! (how do you like that for conversation starters ;) )

My personal favorite Bond movie is From Russia With Love for the following reasons:

1) Awesome fight scene between Connery's Bond and Shaw's Grant - on the Orient Express no less. Doesn't get more classic than that!

2) Minimal gadgetry - if you could even call his briefcase a "gadget". Because of this, Bond is forced to do some actual spy work. The scene's in Istanbul are key.

3) Feral Gypsie women fighting for the rights to the man they love! Awesome.

4) I also like how the context of the spy game is all very cordial (at least until SPECTRE gets involved). We follow them, they follow us - it's expected.

5) I had a huge crush on Daniela Bianchi's portrayal of Tatiana Romanova. That choker...mmmmm.
