    Very silly but what sets! What models and miniatures. Highly entertaining.
  15. 15.

    Christopher Lee with two nipples! Great island locations. Britt Ekland in a bikini!
  17. 17.

    Stripped down Bond. Dalton is tough. Good stunt work.
  18. 18.
    Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)
    Second best Pierce. Great car park action. Memorable weird Vincent Schiavelli hit man.
  19. 19.
    Octopussy (1983)
    So silly. But worth it for the Gorilla looking at watch gag.
  20. 20.
    Quantum Of Solace (2008)
    A bit arty and incoherent but some great action and Gemma Arteton is good.
  21. 21.
    The World Is Not Enough (1999)
    Some good stuff. Good jump out of a window stunt. Sophie Marceau is cool.
  22. 22.
    Die Another Day (2002)
    Good opening in North Korean prison. Then gets a bit silly.
  23. 23.
    Never Say Never Again (1983)
    Nice to see Connery back. Some good zingers but feels weird without the John Barry score.
  24. 24.
    Casino Royale (1967)
    Amazing amazing soundtrack. Woody Allen is cool. Otherwise a bit of a mess.
  25. 25.
    A View To A Kill (1985)
    Love that Duran Duran song. Fiona Fullerton is hot as hell. Walken is having a ball. That's it.
