Casino Royale (2006)
Arguably the best Bond film to date. A stunningly brilliant reinvention of a franchise that started to get a little bit silly. It's darker and grittier, but it's also a lot more real and emotional. Daniel Craig's Bond feel like a proper human being, and behind all of the cool charm that makes Bond the slick character he is, Craig brings some vulnerability to him that has been sorely lacking in previous films. Casino Royale gives us the most relateable Bond we've ever had.

It's also exceptionally thrilling and intense. The action is flawlessly executed, and the rest of the cast is great. Eva Green is a Goddess among men, and Mads Mikkelsen is wonderful. It's also refreshing to see that the film is full of twists and turns, and that it manages to avoid a simple "catch the bad guy" formula. And a film with this much tense poker playing will always get an extra point from me.

Skyfall (2012)
After going to some dark places with Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, Skyfall do feel like it's trying to go a little bit more back to its own roots. The traditional Bond formula that we've come to love, but while keeping in touch with the more personal and emotional from Casino Royale. It's essentially a mixture of both worlds, and it makes Skyfall one of the best Bond films to date.

Goldfinger (1964)
My dear girl, there are some things that just aren't done, such as drinking Dom Perignon '53 above the temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit. That's just as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs!

Spectre (2015)
Spectre is most definitely the most "traditional" Bond film out of Daniel Craig's entries. Everything in it is very familiar, and in that sense, it doesn't necessarily stand out as much as Casino Royale and Skyfall. It is still very competent work though, and there are several moments that are downright awesome to look at. There's particularly a fight scene on a train that I thought was extremely exhilarating.

Craig is just as great as ever. He's really owning the role so much that it's starting to get difficult to imagine anyone else taking over. Léa Seydoux is drop-dead gorgeous, and I immensely enjoyed her as a Bond girl. The rest of the cast is all good, even if I think that Christoph Waltz as the villain was slight under utilized. He's great whenever he's used, but sadly not enough.

First things first, Gemma Arterton is hot. Is she useless in this film? Absolutely, but for a straight male (or gay female) she's some well-needed eye candy in a film that really dropped in quality. While Casino Royale worked as an excellent new rendition of James Bond, Quantum of Solace, while picking up immediately after its predecessor, doesn't feel like a Bond film. It's just average action film. Which is disappointing.

The action is, at times, well put together, but too often it ended up being too shaky. The plot doesn't make any sense, and despite having seen this film three times now, I still don't understand what the whole thing is about. The villain is completely forgettable and Olga Kurylenko is annoying. She's also a bad actress.

Skyfall is my favourite, and I think that The living Daylights is the worst.
