    what's your favourite 007 title theme?

    the main james bond theme isn't included in this poll (everyone knows that's the best!), so you need to vote for the main theme from one of the 20 films.

    my personal fave is 'live and let die' (paul & linda mcCartney). i love the way that the slow melody/vocals lead up to that big 'chung-chung' power-chord and then the increase in pace as those memorable rapid guitar riffs kick-in!

    "oh james... happy 40th anniversary!"

    I am shocked about such an amount of juvenile ignorance. All old Connery Bonds were just cult, not a single bad one among them. Good old days when villains were still villains and Bond wore hats ...

    My favourite Bond villain: Goldfinger, IMO the most villaineous Bond villain ever (of course, played by a german)

    And besides, yes, live and let die is a pretty cool song ...

    [​IMG] Connery is definitely the best Bond!!! Hands down! With Pierce a close second. Roger Moore is third...He's a little too foofie for me. Followed by Gearge Lazenby, then Timothy Dalton.

    I think my favorite Bond film, is either, Goldfinger or Live and Let Die. But Live and Let Die is by far the best theme song...Other than the beginning Bond theme...

    [​IMG] Goldeneye is definitely the best film, and Pierce is definitely giving Connery a run for his money. Sadly, I only notice the opening theme songs when they are crap. (such as Dr. No)

    I liked The World is not Enough, personally. I haven't seen it in a while, but I seem to remember an exploding singer, which means either the designers were on something, or I was.

    I also seem to notice that somehow the Russians are involved in every Bond plot, whether they are the bad guys or merely being used by the bad guys.

    Say, isn't Octo***** one word? Why is it blocked out? Personally, I'd think if it was part of a proper name, it wouldn't need to be blocked.

    Oh me oh my. I Got edited too.

    I think it has something to do with the first bond you see. I like Roger moore (my first experience best) and second Brosnan. The Connery films are just to old for my tastes (perhaps somewhere in the future ;) )

    Connery's title i think is now lost.
    Brosnan is the best by far.
    Roger moore third, Dalton fourth and Lazenby bringing up the rear.

    Oh and i voted for Tomoorow never dies. Not because it is the bets but because it is the only one i can actually remember.

    my vote went to tina turner's goldeneye.
    sheena easton's for your eyes only came in second.

    as for which is the best bond film... it's simply a hard decision.

    Brosnan and Connery are first place

    Dalton and moore and lazenby are second

    I thought all bond actors were great with two standing out.

    Best bond theme, goldfinger and Die another Day

    Best bond movies:

    Brosnan: Goldeneye
    Dalton: Licence to kill (loved this one)
    Connery: Goldfinger
    Moore: Diamonds are forever (probably cause i'm dutch)

    There isn't a best bond movie but you can divide them by actor I think.

    I can't believe anyone can prefer Roger Moore to Sean Connery! In fact I can't how anyone can actually prefer Anyone to Sean Connery is beyond me. He is great.

    Best theme? Well, some I can't remember, but the ones that have stuck are in no particular order:

    Goldfinger, A view to a kill, Live and let die, Living daylights, For your eyes only. My vote went to one of them.
