Ever Since GoldenEye, Bond Has Sucked...

Ever since GoldenEye was released 19 years ago, Bond movies have all sucked. Nobody seems to want to admit it, but it's true. Now by that I don't mean they started sucking with GoldenEye, I mean it was the last good movie. That's six movies since that have ranged from mediocre to God-awful, going from one extreme of cartoonish nonsense to dull gruel hyped up as classy film-making.

Casino Royale (Daniel Craig version)is my all-time favorite Bond film, and Skyfall was very good also. Now Daniel Craig is of course no Sean Connery, but what actor could be? If you're looking at presentation, action, story, and intensity, it's hard to argue that Casino Royale isn't the best ever.

Speaking as someone who's favorite Bond is Goldeneye, I disagree with this sentiment. Sure, most Brosnan ones besides Tomorrow Never Dies (which hit that campy mark just right) were terrible, but Casino Royale and Skyfall are just great examples of adapting grittier film methods while maintaining the older Bond formula. Quantum was indeed mediocre though.
