    The Spy Who Loved Me is my all time favourite. Incidentally, its also Sir Roger Moore's. For me, its perfect - the money spent on it, the locations, the set design by Ken Adam that led to the massive 007 Stage at Pinewood having to be built simultaneously around the Stronberg Tanker Submarine Dock and Control Centre base was superb. The theme song's very good too and its one of Roger's best performances. True, its a bit of a retread of previous Bond stories but its just brilliant. The original plot was going to be a young cabal of Terrorists overthrowing the SPECTRE Leadership and threatening nuclear armageddon but this was deemed too political for the times (Baader - Meinhoff etc) so was scrapped in favour of Stromberg etc. I love JAWS in it - he's coldly evil in this one more so than in its follow up MOONRAKER, which has a similar story but I love it also for the sameish reasons - I love the injection of humour in that one though. My parents liked the sight gags a lot. I also like FOR YOUR EYES ONLY - originally billed as the next film after SPY...but due to the Star Wars craze they opted to spend $30 MILLION to make it, making MOONRAKER the most expensive BOND to date, all the other films could have been made collectively with the budget alone! FOR YOUR EYES ONLY proved Roger could do serious, no gadgetry / lean / streamlined BOND and its just as brilliant...to tell the truth, I grew up more with Roger Moore's Bond and love his stuff in that era.

    On Her Majesty's Secret Service - 2 reasons:

    1. The theme tune is John Barry's best
    2. Diana Rigg (sigh....)

    Has anyone read the novels? - I'm working my way through the audiobooks on the way to work. Just finished Thunderball.

    Interesting that some of the films followed the plots closely, others not so much.

    I've never ever seen any of the classic Bond movies, despite the fact that ITV and its other channels seemed to screen them all the time. Saying that, I only saw Goldeneye and Die Another Day recently when I picked them up on the cheap. Really enjoyed Goldeneye and Love the final set piece, in truth I Intended to watch this due to the fact I was a big fan of the N64 Goldeneye game which stayed faithful to the film in almost every way. Die Another Day looks to be universally hated by the Bond community, this was Brosnan's last Bond and you can really tell as he's kinda just having a laugh. Despite that though, I love Die Another Day, yeah it gets incredibly stupid and some of the effects and acting are laughable but I had a hell of a fun time watching it and at the end of the day, isn't that what it's all about?

    I'll have to try and find The World is Not Enough sometime, remember going to see that for a mate's birthday back then. Remember all the hype when it was revealed the millennium dome would be making an appearance in the opening sequence? Wow, how time flies.
