    The first Bond film I ever watched, surprisingly, is the first Bond film ever: Dr. No.
    At first, I must admit that I don't feel really interesting with it. It's the second and the third time I watched it that I found out how great the film is. Sean Connery is so cool, I got goosebumps when he said the legendary line "Bond. James Bond". It has almost everything of a great Bond film: Good story, great actors, great and humorous lines, the classic feeling. Still, I think the villains is a bit bland. Joseph Wiseman as Dr. No is not so good as I expect he should be.
    In other words,it was a great start for the great Bond franchise.

    I have watched none.

    I don't like over exaggerated movies.


    The concept is good but the amount of stereotype hollywood action is just way to much to enjoy it imho.

    I can't vote simply because I do not remember exactly which one I watched first.... I think it was either Thunderball or Goldfinger either way great movies even to this day.

    Edit: The reason I can't remember, it that I am rather old and it was in the 70's.... lol

    I can't remember what one it was.

    I just remember I watched one of them with my father when I was like 6 years old and got really hooked on the rest of the movies for some reason.
    Had watched dad's collection a week later XD

    I forgot
    Dr. No. I remember there was a James Bond marathon on when I was 8 or 9 and I watched the first 3 or 4 with my dad all day. Good movies.

    I am in a similar situation to PsionicRoshambo and although I can remember most things from when I was about 4 or so I can not remember which Bond film would have been on that Christmas.... I want to say Thunderball but I am not entirely sure.

    I suppose I will throw out the second question of what Bond film do you reckon you should start or restart someone on? My first thought is probably to Goldeneye but On Her Majesty's Secret Service seems fairly high in the running not because it is a great Bond film but I reckon it works well as a first.

    I got into the 007 "saga" rather late in the series, the 1st i watched was GoldenEye. Later on, i got hooked with the rest of mr Brosnan's 007 movies.

    Goldeneye, but only because I never heard of Bond before then. When I first seen Goldeneye, I thought it was a whole new series or something, something entirely new. And when I was a kid, my parents were kind of old fashioned in which we would watch Disney movies instead of big blockbusters, family safe stuff.

    The first Bond movie I can remember watching was The World Is Not Enough. I remember thinking that the scene where the BMW is cut in half was just the coolest thing ever.


    If you haven't actually watched any of the movies, how could you know what any of them are like?

    Seen enough trailers and cutscenes to give a judgement.

    You mean a biased judgement based on very very very little information?

    The bond films aren't like Bourne movies, or other shooter films. You should give them a chance before you judge it.

    Because that's clearly enough to judge each entry in a 50 year old series. Riiiiight. (Also, exaggerated movies are too much, but heavily exaggerated tv shows and cartoons are perfectly fine? Not sure I follow the logic there.)


    I'm not 100% sure, but I think that was Die Another Die.

    Prior to the Daniel Craig Bond films the entire series was highly over exaggerated and incredibly campy. That was sort of the series' claim to fame. I'm not knocking it, in some ways I like the goofier Bond films more than the grim 'n' gritty super serious ones. At least Moore, Connery, and Brosnan looked like they were having fun.

    Tangent question: who was your favorite Bond? I like that Craig made Bond capable and actually badass instead of super lucky, but for my money Brosnan made the best Bond (despite getting more than his share of crappy movies).

    I loved Shaun Connery as bond but to me Peirce Brosnan really sounded and looked like James Bond to me more than any other. He just oozed that British Sexy Spy kind of thing, not sure why but thats my opinion. lol

    Man, agreed. He was definitely the Bond-iest Bond of them all.

    Now don't ask what Bond Girl was the best.... the only one I could say I wouldn't have a go at would be Grace Jones... lol She if that is the creatures true sex.... scares me.

    Dad took me to watch Tomorrow Never Dies. Didn't understand it one bit at the time.
