Bond Week: What Are YOUR Favorite Bond Movies?

Earlier this week we asked Quantum of Solace director Marc Forster what his favorite Bond movies were, so now it's time to ask all of you. Besides the upcoming Quantum of Solace, there are 21 other Bond movies in the franchise's 46 year history to choose from. Out of all the films, 7 of them star Roger Moore, 6 of them star Sean Connery, 4 of them star Pierce Brosnan, 2 of them star Timothy Dalton, 1 of them stars George Lazenby, and 2 of them (so far) stars Daniel Craig. There's a very diverse and exciting selection of films to choose from, so it may be a bit tough to narrow them down, but now is the time to reveal all. It's time to man up and admit which you prefer the most. So what are your favorite Bond movies?
To kick this off, I'll officially reveal my own favorites. My absolute favorite Bond movie is On Her Majesty's Secret Service, closely followed by Man With the Golden Gun. Additionally, I really love Moonraker, You Only Live Twice, GoldenEye, and a new addition, Quantum of Solace. Remarkably I'm not the biggest Sean Connery fan (that is a discussion for another day), so none of my favorites are really from his era. The reason why I prefer the ones I mentioned above mostly stems from my experiences watching them when I was younger. For example, On Her Majesty's Secret Service has a lot of skiing scenes and I still love seeing all of those even to this day. These definitely aren't the typical choices, but that's what I love about this franchise - everyone can have their own unique favorites.
