    Who is your favourite Bond?

    In terms of acting, look, on-screen charisma etc.

    Just picked up the box set and started off with Dr. No today. Really can't wait to trawl my way through them all, but it got me wondering about who is the favourite around here.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Connery, obvz. Struck the right balance between suavity and bristling masculinity. Looked good in a tux and looked like he could seriously **** you over if the occasion demanded it.

    I like Craig & he's probably the most impressive physical specimen since Connery to play the role but, without wishing to go too metro on your arses, he isn't classically handsome enough for Bond. Women and yer homosexualists dig him, but in a "sexy bit of rough" way; Bond is supposed to be an old Etonian.

    Pierce Brosnan for mine. The first couple of Bond movies I saw were Brosnan ones so he instantly became my favourite.

    Goldeneye was an awesome movie, but it was the Goldeneye N64 game that I spent countless hours playing:





    So epic.

    I like Craig, but yeah. Connery. Best actor, best films. Though I seem to have watched Moore's films the most.

    Brosnan because of his slightly parodic approach to the role.

    Like Craig a lot too. He is the real tough guy and Casino Royale was crucial to revitalizing the series.
