Same for me. Old man and Goldfinger. It's iconic.I'm pretty certain the answer to this question will very much depend on your age. I'm an old man and I say: Goldfinger. It set the template for Bond movies, and every one since has either copied it or consciously set out to subvert it.
In a move that may raise eyebrows in Whitehall circles, the actor Daniel Craig receives the Order of Saint Michael and Saint George (CMG) for outstanding contribution to film. It is the same award given to the fictional character he is best-known for playing, and one normally reserved for professional diplomats and intelligence officers.

See Licence To Kill was on ITV today so watched, been a good few years since I seen it.
See, the thing with Dalton, he isnt my favourite, I find him a bit awkward to watch at times, but that movie is a just a good movie overall. Been a good many years since I seen The Living Daylights but I have it in my head it was a pretty good one also. I must give that one a go soon.
My favourite was Roger Moore but, a couple of his movies, View To a Kill in particular, but Octopussy and Man With a Golden Gun also were weak.
I liked Connery, but being the generation I am, some of the earlier ones just look a litte dated to me, and the general style, that being said You Only Live Twice and Thunderball were really good, and to be fair, the earlier ones were not bad either, better than those above mentioned Roger Moore ones.
The Daniel Craig films are just so dark, not light-hearted like the earlier films. I miss the "spy" aspect: Bond sneaking around doing spy things with quiet spy music in the background. Now it's all jerky-camera action and chase scenes and more chase scenes and the occasional round of torture.
Go back to Pierce Brosnan who would chuckle at his own cleverness, or Sean Connery smacking a woman's bum as she was walking by. Roger Moore was wonderful as the everlasting playboy. The movies were just fun back then.
Caught Goldeneye on ITV4 the other day and they had cut that sauna scene. Disappointed is an understatement.
