I've found that I like the Bond movies that don't have a "Bond saves the world" plot.

Movies like "From Russian With Love", "The Living Daylights" and "For Your Eyes Only", where no one is trying to destroy the world. Instead, the plot is a bit more "realistic": try to get your hands on the Lektor, stop a scheming Russian general who has gone rogue; recover the ATAC before the Soviets get it...

The Timothy Dalton 007 movies were good as was Brosnan's Goldeneye but a lot of those 007 movies are ridiculous.

Skyfall

A good movie, but I am scratching my head as to why it is being called one of the best Bond movies of all time.

Skyfall

Very good. But not quite as good as I expected given all the hype.

Two that I never saw Red Face

A Thin Red Line - Very good.

This is Spinal Tap - Despite the fact this was HIGHLY recommended by friends whose taste I usually align with, I couldn't get through this one. Perhaps it was my state of mind.
