Conversely upward trajectory is possible. QOS to SF and TND to TWINE ?

Biggest fall: DAF, which is brilliant, to NSNA.   ajb007/biggrin

Biggest rise: NSNA to AVTAK, which is brilliant.   ajb007/smile

Or, more accurately, NSNA to AVTAK is a huge drop, for me. The former is a glorious send-off for the best Bond ever, and the latter is a swan song in a polluted lake.

For rise, could MR to FYEO count?

Take your pick:

At first from You Only Live Twice to On Her Majesty's Secret Service. At first I couldn't even watch On Her Majesty's Secret Service because of that "this never happened to the other fella" line. But I've grown to love the movie even though it was jarring at first without Connery.

But then On Her Majesty's Secret Service to Diamonds Are Forever. Connery just isn't the same Bond as in You Only Live Twice. It's good that he was back but still you can tell the different tone in Connery movies when you compare the first five to Diamonds Are Forever.

The World is not Enough to Die Another Day. Probably the worst Bond movie and it's an anniversary movie too.

Casino Royale to Quantum of Solace. After the really good origin movie Quantum of Solace was a movie I was looking forward to. But after the awesome car chase the movie got worse at almost every scene.

Quantum of Solace to Skyfall. Another anniversary movie that is even worse than Quantum of Solace. I put a review here that pretty much put Die Another Day and Skyfall in the same category. The only difference is one is silly and the other is serious. But they are both bad Bond movies.
