Topic: My very best scenes from all the Bond Films... in no particular order

- Dr No : "That's a Smith and Wesson, and you've had your six.''... stays cool as he counted the shots
- Octopussy: The full backgammon scene ... doesn't look at the double six !
- Spy : Mojaba Club Scene ... classy, nice music and dialogue...Bond uneasy to speak about Tracy
- Spy : Lotus coming out of the water on the beach... classic
- Moonraker parachute pre-credit scene... awesome
- Spy : Pre-credit ski jump... iconic
- Octopussy : Fabergé eggs auction scene... smooth
- FYEO : Motorcycle/Ski chase... well executed
- Spy : The lighter scene ''when this mission is over I will kill you''... Roger can act seriously
- OHMSS : Tracy's death... good acting job ! Lazenby could have a been a great one
- Octopussy : Pre-credit when the jet comes out of the hanger.
- Daylights : Pre-credit, Tim on top of the burning Jeep... exciting
- Spy : Train cabin fight with Jaws ... well orchestrated

Thoughts ?

A few of my choices:

FRWL - Dinner on the Orient Express followed by the no holds barred fight to the death in the train compartment.
TLD - Koskov's defection, and smuggling him out of Czechoslovakia.
CR - The Madagascar chase. Such extraordinary stuntwork, and an action scene that speaks volumes about Bond's character vs that of the villainous character.

Goldeneye tank chase.
TWINE- I never miss, followed by him jumping off the tower towards the submarine.
OHMSS- the proposal scene. Everything from their acting, to the setting and Barry's beautiful score.
FYEO-  on the sleigh taxi with melina, with the beautiful scenery
LTK- more like a problem eliminator, and when he water skis!
Mr-When Bond walks towards the pyramids in Brazil and all the woman start appearing!  ajb007/lol
FRWL- first encounters Tanya in his hotel room.
SP-Struts across the rooftop in the pre titles like the absolute business.

The look on Roger's face as all the girls appear and smile at him always cracks me up.

I always considered it Roger's equivalent of "I must be dreaming" from Goldfinger.

The Living Daylights: Bond Confronts Pushkin. "You are professional, you do not kill without reason!" And the way Bond says, "If I trusted Koskov we wouldn't be talking."

From Russia With Love: The reverse-reverse psychology of the confrontation with Grant on the train, the way Bond has to act like he's giving up his psychological leverage/advantage in "giving away" his tell in thinking of the gold sovereigns in the other case, implying in truth that there is a weapon in the case that he can reach, using Grant's well-earned paranoia against him. One of the most brilliant little details of one of the best Bond films.

Goldeneye: "Oh, please, James, put it away." One of Brosnan's stronger moments as Bond, revealing a kind of pitiful sense of hurt at the betrayal which has allowed him to feel guilt for something that not only did not happen but gave his true enemy ideal camouflage

Thunderball: Bond tells Domino that her brother has been murdered. Rest in Peace, Claudine Auger, who was exquisite in this all-important scene, the film's emotional centerpiece. Bond is righteously ruthless about deploying her to his own ends.

For Your Eyes Only: Bond kills Locque. Roger Moore despised this scene but the anger he felt over it seems to have admirably bled into his Bond's fury toward Locque, with him gritting his teeth through saying some disdainful last words for Locque's consumption.

License to Kill: Bond wonders aloud how anyone could go after the mighty drug lord Sanchez on their own, surely no one could be that crazy, this following the brutal sequence in which Sanchez kills Krest, who Bond has set up to take the fall for the acquisition of a great deal of Sanchez's ill-gotten money. Dalton and Robert Davi enjoyed splendid chemistry, and the film's mimicking of the novel The Man With the Golden Gun's dynamic between Bond and Francisco Scaramanga is rather successful for that chemistry. 

Casino Royale: Bond consoles Vesper in the shower. One of the most romantic moments in all of the Bond pictures, given that darkness and sadness required to make it sing.

The Man With the Golden Gun: Christopher Lee takes the monologue concerning his Scaramanga and teh character's backstory and gives it plenty of life as Bond discovers that the assassin has killed Andrea Anders.

Goldfinger: The whole game of golf.

Octopussy: Bond's short-lived but nevertheless poignant sense of grief for Vijay. Probably on this list because it struck as being so sad when I first saw this as a small child.
