Since this week the complete 22 film collection of James Bond movies got released, to mark and celebrate the 50(!) birth date of the popular film series, I decided to a top 10 list, of what I believe are to be the best Bond
movie till date! And since I have seen every single Bond movie at least 3 times, expect maybe for the newer ones, I know what I'm talking about! Or well, that's at least what I like to believe ;)

10. Casino Royale (2006)

The movie that pretty much reinvented Bond again and made the series and character 21th century proof, ready to get reintroduced to a new generation.

9. The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

It might have one of the worst Bond girls in it but the movie itself is being a pretty entertaining one, featuring a typically silly but yet enjoyable Bond plot and main villain.
It besides was the movie that introduced the Jaws character!

6. Licence to Kill (1989)

Timothy Dalton is a more emotional Bond in this also more modern Bond outting, starring Robert Davi and a young and crazy Benicio Del Toro as the main villains.
It besides features one of the more memorable and spectacular Bond finales.

4. Die Another Day (2002)

Probably the most controversial pick for the list but personally I really like the movie. It's what James Bond is supposed to be all about to me, which is silly but entertaining and with plenty of awesome gadgets and (over-the-top) action in it. The movie besides also feature some of the best Bond girls and Bond villains.

3. From Russia with Love (1963)

This is not a standard Bond movie by any means. It probably is even
being the least Bond-like movie out of the entire series but it's
simply just being a great movie on its own.
It's more plot driven, especially during its second half and it features a great and unforgettable Robert Shaw in it.

2. GoldenEye (1995)

Not just one of the best Bond movies but also one of the best action movies in general out there, with next to lots of spectacular action, also a great plot and solid performances by its cast, with Pierce Brosnan playing the Bond character for the first time.

1. Goldfinger (1964)

No surprise for the number 1 spot but it simply is just true; "Goldfinger" is still the best Bond movie out there. It's really the movie that set the tone for the rest of the series, even more so than its predecessors "Dr. No" and "From Russia with Love" did.
You could argue that this is the movie were the series truly started, with a great classic Bond story, memorable gadgets and of course equally great and memorable villains.
