I think the writers are ruining the Bond franchise. I don't understand how you follow up Casino Royale with the crapfest that is Quantum of Solace.

I liked Dalton. I liked the edge he brought to Bond after Roger Moore's more laid back Bond was a refreshing change. I consider License to Kill to be one of the better Bond movies, probably in the top 1/4 of them. The Living Daylights wasn't anything great but it was brainless fun and there have been many worse Bond films. I think Dalton was the closest to what we're seeing from Daniel Craig's Bond right now.

I also have to say that Roger Moore was hampered by some horrendous script writing. The Man with the Golden Gun and A View to a Kill are the worst Bond films for me, without any second thought.

No way. Dalton was my favorite Bond by far.

I thought the whole Scaramanga character was silly. And of course he had to have a midget sidekick.

Add Moonraker to the crap list too. Way to shatter the awesome image of villain Jaws. Poor Roger Moore. At least he had The Spy Who Loved Me which was absolutely fantastic and still probably my all-time fave Bond film.

I like Daniel Craig as Bond. But it's a different look for Bond. He's a much tougher, grittier Bond. I can see why people don't care for him as Bond, because he's not your traditional Bond, but I like the new direction. And I liked Pierce Brosnan, too.

Also don't think it's fair to blame a movie sucking on an actor. Not to say that an actor can't blow it, but there are many other things beside the actor that can ruin a movie.
