Best Bond

And the 007's Were:

Sean Connery in From Russia With Love

George Lazenby in On Her Majesty's Secret Service

Roger Moore in Live and Let Die

Timothy Dalton in The Living Daylights

Pierce Brosnan in GoldenEye

Daniel Craig in Casino Royale

Well I thought I would have some fun and review all the actors who have played James Bond in a serious film. Also I thought I might as well do it since it will open spots up for other actors in 63, and 2006 at least. For these six the prediction contest is still in place.

Great idea! I'll predict:

1. Sean Connery
2. Daniel Craig
3. Pierce Brosnan
4. Timothy Dalton
5. George Lazenby
6. Roger Moore

I'm pretty much positive the top 2 are set, though the order could be flipped in the end. I'll be immensely surprised if Roger Moore isn't last. I haven't seen Dalton or Brosnan in a long time, so they could be flipped as well. Dalton was hurt in both of his films by the inconsistent tone set during both of them. Lazenby's film was quite good, but I was totally caught off guard by the style Lazenby chose, so I didn't really like him.

Roger Moore is like a waiter in a suit rather than an agent in a suit, I think Lazenby is terrible except his final scene which I liked, Brosman is actually decent I thought, Dalton is good despite his shit films.

Wow, this is cool. Does that mean Sean Connery is not elgible for Alternate 1963 Lead Actor?

1. Connery
2. Craig
3. Dalton
4. Brosnan
5. Moore
6. Lazenby

Well he won't be reviewed twice for the same performance, but he will be able to win that year overall still. I will factor all the performances into their respective years.

My guess:

1. Craig
2. Connery
3. Dalton
4. Lazenby
5. Moore
6. Brosnan

This is tough for me, because Connery's performances in his first three films are great, but his last three display a decided downward trend. That's what jeopardizes his #1 slot, as far as I'm concerned. So I'm going to go out on a tiny limb here:

1. Craig
2. Connery
3. Dalton
4. Brosnan
5. Moore
6. Lazenby
