Yesterday, we asked you to identify your favorite James Bond movies. Unfortunately, we’d be remiss if we failed to acknowledge that the 007 franchise has had its share of duds over the years as well. For today’s poll, let’s find out which James Bond films are your least favorite.
I have no doubt that ‘Moonraker‘ will lead the voting here. I can’t argue with that too much. It’s a pretty dumb movie, and certainly one of the weakest of the series. However, if you could try to divorce it from the James Bond franchise and just look at it as a thick slice of ’70s sci-fi cheese, it’s kind of enjoyably dopey. I’ll be honest, I look forward to watching that one again more than the wretched ‘A View to a Kill’ or ‘Die Another Day‘.
Roger Moore takes a lot of heat for dumbing down the Bond series. Even the best of his movies suffer their share of goofiness that hasn’t aged well. However, not even the legendary Sean Connery was immune to this problem. Both ‘You Only Live Twice’ and ‘Diamonds Are Forever’ are pretty big stinkers, and his return to the role in the “unofficial” 1983 remake of ‘Thunderball’, jokingly called ‘Never Say Never Again‘, is just plain awful.
Vote for as many options in this poll as you’d like.
Don’t forget to get your preorder in for the ‘Bond 50’ collection. When you order from Amazon, you’ll also get an exclusive hardcover book about James Bond movie posters.
