Thunderball is better than all of those except Goldfinger.

Not greatest bond film but greatest Brosnan film yes.

I like Brosnan and most his movies but disliked the hell out of his bond reign besides Goldeneye.

The N64 Game just is an added bonus, for nostalgia purposes.

What I’m about to say may be unpopular, but it’s true: Mission Impossible has now exceeded Bond overall in quality.


Part of the reason is that they are truly a series, as opposed to the standalone formulaic rehash of Bond.

Sure there is SOME continuity in the Craig Bonds, but not massively so narratively. And half of what is there seems shoehorned in as opposed to being organic to the story.

re: Goldeneye: Greatest or Most Nostalgic Bond?
It's my favorite Bond movie - I also love From Russia With Love, and On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

All of my praise would simply be repetition, it's what everyone else has said, but god, the casting.

Those are definitely my 1A and 1B of the best Bond films. Goldeneye is definitely one of the better ones, but I wouldn't put it in the top tier that's reserved for FRWL and OHMSS and a few others. I'd place it alongside For Your Eyes Only, License to Kill, maybe even the Spy who Loved Me. I think people are actually underrating it now, probably because the rest of the Brosnan era holds up so poorly

Early 90's the game came out almost two years after the movie. In 1997.

Kinda both. It’s just an extremely well-executed film that strides the line perfectly between serious and campy. Brosnan is in top form, the plot twist was a legit surprise, and the villains and henchmen were all excellent. If it’s not the best overall Bond film, it’s right up there.

Plus, it has the evergreen nostalgia factor thanks to the N64 game.

Goldeneye is very solid. Famke Janssen is a fox

I think it’s Brosnan’s best Bond film by far. It’s the only one that didn’t seem caricature of a Bond movie. Definitely a top 5 Bond movie


This. It’s really good. Brosnan was just handed crap scripts after this one. Unpopular opinion but he’s my favorite Bond.

Hammist and most petty Bond villain ever, and that’s saying something.

re: Goldeneye: Greatest or Most Nostalgic Bond?
The Craig movies don’t hold up well.

As others have written, they try to be Bourne movies, instead of Bond movies.

If I want to watch Jason Bourne, I’ll watch the originals. Not a poor knock off.

But it goes back to another issue that’s mentioned above. Goldeneye is great because they were still able to draw on that Soviet Cold War setting.

How do you make a Bond movie outside of the Cold War? No one has come up with a good solution.

It’s a good Bond flick. May be my favorite. Too bad the rest of the Brosnan Bond movies were forgettable or downright awful (Die Another Day).

Best Bronsnon

Moore's best was "For Your Eyes Only"

Connery's is "From Russia with Love" and Goldfinger"

Rarely will watch the others . . .

re: Goldeneye: Greatest or Most Nostalgic Bond?
One thing that strikes me about the Craig movies.

In Goldeneye, the casino in the opening is a glamorous setting.

In Casino Royale, the casino isn't the least bit glamorous.

I prefer the glamor.

Def not better then skyfall to me

I'm not well versed in the 70s 80s and earlier ones but Daniel Craig ones have been way more entertaining jmo

Also Adele skyfall what a great intro song maybe the best ever
