Its Rodge so by default good, because Rodge was a legend.

I don't thinks its trash

Diamonds are Forever is Connery's worst of the lot, the unoffical Never Say Never Again is far better.

Many trashed License to Kill but I think it's Dalton's best would have liked to see it continue or if they could do a retired Dalton coming back into service for one last mission.

OHMSS gets a bit of a drubbing but as I got older I appreciated it more but I admit its a bit to long.

Octopussy is total gash and I have trouble with The Man with the Golden Gun seemed to quick to jump into humor seeing as Live and Let Die was quite dark.

Goldeneye was good but the music is terrible, although I am biased I'd have had John Barry just writing music for bond 24/7

Brosnans started out good but from World is Not Enough it went downhill fast

I always find people tend to have a soft spot for their first bond.
The first I was ever aware of really was A View to a Kill which I went to cinema to see. As such I always really enjoy it, despite knowing it’s not really a great film. Same with Octopussy which I would likely have seen around same time on rental.

After that I know I saw Living Daylights at cinema when that came out and as such, prefer that to Licence to Kill (and for some reason always hear her sing licence to kilt, rather than kill)

I could watch them all though and plan on starting doing so from beginning when on holiday next week

Living Daylights is up there as one of the best imo.

Had some great model work

It certainly feels more like the Connery era Bond in that there is more than just a crazed bad guy with an OTT plot.

Although I grew up on the Moore era his Bond movies suffered from not having SMERSH or SPECTRE lurking in the background unlike Connery's.
