I disagree with Sam.
I haven't even said anything yet, but I guess that means you know I was going with Casino Royale (2006).

I meant I was voting for The World is Not Enough.

Casino Royale 2006 was the only one that felt real.  The early Bonds were great, but SPECTRE was conspiracy crazy.

That's why they were great!

Since Moonraker I have seen them all at the cinema, but it is 2006's Casino Royale that wins for me.

I think it's the definitive Bond film, and still contains the greatest Bond opening. Every few years a different Bond film is designated as the worst, and currently TWINE pops up most often, so know that. I think it's the perfect Bond mix of the serious and the silly.

This is how I voted in my recent Bond Marathon. I think apart from those that I voted for plus Dr. No and Thunderball. I think I would prefer to watch the Bond movies from GoldenEye period onwards, and that includes Quantum of Solace, over any of the Moore films.
