    I've seen all the Bond movies since Dalton, and none of the ones before that. I think the two Dalton ones are the best of what I have seen, and Quantum of Solace/Skyfall are third/fourth.

    It's a franchise I watch, but have no great affection for.

    I adore the two Dalton entries. Only one above it is Goldeneye for me.

    I know it's weird and illogical, but I dont register the Craig entries with the other Bonds. They're in a different zip code imo. I'm sure people older than me feel the same way about previous incarnations.

    I'd argue Octopussy and You Only Live Twice have very few redeeming qualities, but I'm also a fan of the character in general since childhood.
    Octopussy is probably one of my least favorite Bonds, together with a View to a Kill. Die Another Day is the worst. So there it's not quite so easy to find redeeming qualities

    That said, I'm probably one of the few here who really digs You Only Live Twice. What I enjoy every time again, not necessarily in order: The title song, the Japanese location, Little Nellie, the volcano set (things got really outlandish here for the first time, but boy that Ken Adam can design a set), the pre-credit sequence in space set to what is possibly John Barry finest hour as Bond composer.

    Kinda funny that director Lewis Gilbert has directed 3 Bonds now with essentially the same recycled storyline.

    The Dalton Bonds contain the best music in Bond film history.

    Aha’s “The Living Daylights” and Gladys Knight’s “Licence to Kill” are two of the best themes in the series. Then The Pretenders’ “If There Was a Man” and Patti Labelle’s “If You Asked Me To” make appearances during the end credits of the films.

    Love me some 80s.

    Sounds like the title of a spoof, or bad fanfic.

    What do you mean "no time to die"? Are you in a hurry?

    Every time I read the title I have a mental image of Daniel Craig interrupting Rutger Hauer in his monologue.
