At this point Goldeneye is the only Bond film I look at with any fondness. Everything before it is too old and silly to enjoy more than once (if that). And the subsequent Brosnan films have moments but fail to be the complete package. As for Daniel Craig's Bond... I find the initial appeal of a gritty modern Bond has worn off. The enjoyment is not repeatable. In every case a second viewing was a disappointment.

Goldeneye is special.

Casino Royale (not the funny one) is clearly the best.
The Spy Who Loved Me was my first Bond and silly but fun.
Goldfinger is where Bond really became the Bond we know.
Dr. No still stands up as a good film.
Skyfall had some great scenes, and would have been a good conclusion to the franchise.  But no.  Of course no.

Goldeneye had some amazing stunts, but I still haven't finished it.

But no.  Of course no.

Are you saying of course you cannot vote for it or of course they couldn't just leave it there?

Of course they couldn't end the franchise with Skyfall.
