I'm not listing No Time to Die. Fuck that movie and the people who made it. It killed the Bond franchise. People can say what they want about how well-made it is objectively speaking, with the acting, action scenes, whatever else. But it did things that shouldn't be done in the 007 franchise. And considering … Continue reading James Bond films ranked worst to best
