    I'm sure this one has been done before, but I just recently rewatched "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace" so i thought I'd try something a bit lighter.

    1. Best Bond actor?
    2. Best Bond movie?
    3. Worst Bond movie?
    4. Best Bond girl?
    5. Best Bond gadget?
    6. Best Bond car?
    7. Best Bond action sequence?
    8. Best Bond villian?
    9. Best Bond theme song?
    10. Best Bond dialog?

    Ok, here's my answers....
    1. Sean Connery. With Daniel Craig and Timothy Dalton tied for second, Pierce Bronson is third.
    2. "Goldfinger" with "The World Is Not Enough", "The Living Daylights", "License To Kill", and "A View To A Kill" being close.
    3. "Tomorrow Never Dies" and "Die Another Day" tie for this one.
    4. Michelle Yoh from "Tomorrow Never Dies" (WORST Bond movie has the BEST Bond girl, go figure). Denise Richards ("The World Is Not Enough"), Jane Seymore ("Live And Let Die"), Maryam d'Abo ("The Living Daylights"), and Olga Kurylenko ("Quantum of Solace") are all close.
    5. I have to go with the simple answer and say either the Walther PPK or the Walther P99.
    6. The 1964 Austin Martin DB5 from "Goldfinger". I also liked the Austin Martin from "The Living Daylights"
    7. Probably the missile silo scene from "The World Is Not Enough". The car chase from the beginning of "Quantum of Solace" was good too.
    8. Zorin (Christopher Walken) from "Live And Let Die." He was GREAT in that movie. Alec Trevalian from "Goldeneye" was pretty good too.
    9. "The Living Daylights" by A-Ha, "The World Is Not Enough" by Garbage, or "You Know My Name" by Chris Cornell (from "Casino Royale")
    10. "Do you expect me to talk" "No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die." Hands down. another good one was "My knee aches every single day. Twice as bad when it is cold. Do you have any idea how long the winter lasts in this country?" from "Goldeneye"

    1. Best Bond actor? George Lasenby

    2. Best Bond movie? Casino Royale (the second one not the stupid one with stupid Woody "youth in Asia" Allen)

    3. Worst Bond movie? The first Casino Royale

    4. Best Bond girl? Lynn-Holly Johnson

    5. Best Bond gadget? Micro SCUBA gizzmo that looked like two CO2 bottles.

    6. Best Bond car? SAAB 900 Turbo (From the John Gardner novels. Dubbed the "Silver Beast")

    7. Best Bond action sequence? Opening Scene of Octipussy where the 00 agent, in clown makeup, runs for his life to deliver the egg.

    8. Best Bond villian? Goldfinger

    9. Best Bond theme song? Nobody Does It Better -Simon from Spy Who Loved Me

    10. Best Bond dialog? I agree with "do you expect me to talk...".

    But will offer this one too:

    "It's all right...
    It's quite all right, really...
    She's having a rest...
    We'll be going on soon...
    There´s no hurry, you see?
    We have all the time in the world."

    Sorry but I would have to correct this. Max Zorin was the villian in "A view to a Kill". In "Live and Let Die" the bad guy was Mr. Big aka Kananga.

    Best Bond girl for me was the former Mrs. Peel from the Avengers (Dianna Riggs in Her Majesties Secret Service)
