I actually enjoy SPECTRE more than Skyfall, but agree Skyfall is the better film. And Casino Royale holds such a special place for me - such a memorable time to be a Bond fan with Craig storming onto the scene.

 

I'd agree with this. I like all the Bond movies, and for me, it's just about which order they come in - something I find tricky.

I feel like Casino Royale only works if you buy into the love story. The whole third act hinges on it, what with Bond frolicking with Vesper on the beach and going shopping in Venice. Eva Green is extremely beautiful so Bond ending up with her is believable, but some of that dialogue is cringe-worthy.

 

SPECTRE managed to weave a more natural love interest into the story without making that the sole focus, and most importantly without making Bond out to be a lovesick puppy. They are simply two characters who share a similar pain and decide to go along for the ride as allies and lovers.

 

I feel like Craig's era is one of missed opportunities, but despite having some plot issues the tone of SPECTRE was pitch perfect. I wanted more of this, and less of what we actually got.

For me, it´s still this ranking:

 

1.  SKYFALL - because it offers spectacle, drama and fun, and Craig´s most assured performance.

 

2.  QUANTUM OF SOLACE - because it is a lean, unfussy film, taking lots of chances.

 

3.  CASINO ROYALE - for the novelty factor of seeing Bond rebooted by Daniel Craig.

 

4.  SPECTRE - because some sequences are brilliant, others, well, not so much.
