Lists, Lists, Lists

I know I make a lot of lists in these things but I like it…
Anyway, here's my top 5 favorite James Bond films. In honor of the annual James Bond marathon on TV during Thanksgiving.
5) Goldeneye- The best of the Pierce Brosnan ones. Famke Jansen as a batshit crazy villain and Sean Bean as a rogue double O. Awesome flick.
4) Goldfinger- Would be rated higher except that Bond progresses through this adventure by continually screwing up. Still, it makes the list for such iconic characters as Goldfinger, Oddjob and Pussy Galore.
3) On Her Majesty's Secret Service- Yeah, I know. George Lazenby sucks as Bond. But the combination of Telly Savalas as Blofeld and the marriage and subsequent widowing of Bond rates this one high on my list.
2) Casino Royale- Daniel Craig's debut as Bond and in my opinion the most like the Bond of the books. Great film.
1) From Russia With Love- I like Sean Connery best and this is his best outing. Bond vs. Commies, a gorgeous Soviet defectee and a fistfight in a tiny train cabin, it doesn't get much better than that.
