I thought this thread was on his best Bond film , then if not add Mrs.Doubtfire to the list. Plus some of his other direct to video flicks. Any one seen Mister Johnson ? Evelyn was really very moving. another one of his Bond like peformances in a non-Bond film.

Sorry, Xen. I have to agree with kevrichardson on this one (may I never say that in a Benson thread :)). I only included Thomas Crown because, in a way, his performance is very Bond-like and for some it delivers more Bondian style and wit than any of his actual Bond films.

You should start a poll on PB's best non-Bond film (just make sure you include The Lawnmower Man). :)

Evelyn is a good film ,i thought that this thread was for Brosnan Bond films. If you are adding non-Bond then try "Mrs.Doubtfire. Or some of his direct to video films like "GreyOwl".

Jim you are by far the most creative poster I have ever met on any forum. If only you liked Brosnan....

I will be sure to PM you a copy of our manifesto when finshed :)

Die Another Day is a hybrid Bond film. It makes it Brosnan's best because he himself is a hybrid Bond. The right mix of all the past elements, in one film, and one Bond, what could be better?

It doesnt get any better than that James. Die Another Day is the ultimate Bond film, (IMO).

This what we all hope for in Bond 21. In so far as Brosnan as the "Hybrid Bond" well that 's correct. He clearly has studied all the films of the men who played Bond . He is also the last Bond chosen by Albert R.Broccoli. so he might have had some direction as to which way the role need to go . Remember then only Broccoli and Connery were the last living links to Fleming . and how the role should be approached.

I am so impressed with the performance of both DAD and TWINE in this poll. It appears that the silent majority has once again prevailed.

And sadly, Xen. Evleyn has yet to appear at my local theaters, which I openly, yet tactfully complained to them about. But I am getting on the first waiting list I can find to buy it.

Off Topic (apologies)
Zencat - I'd like to start a poll, but I can't seem to do it. I've followed the instuctions on the Help Desk page, but the option to start a poll doesn't appear anywhere on the New Thread page. Any ideas, or do you need to be a Staff Member?

On Topic
I voted for Tomorrow Never Dies. With the exception of the last half hour or so I think the mix of action, character and dialogue is spot on ... even the last half hour isn't as bad as some people make out.

There is no need for a poll . I enjoyed TND , Brosnan second effort was good entertainment.

That's understandable. Thanks anyway, Zencat.

It was going to be an opposite to your polls (Worst Bond Films), if you want to use the idea yourself. :)

I'm not really a fan of determining the "worst" of something, especially when it comes to Bond. Too negative. And I think MI6 has this exact poll running over on their forums. For me, there

Just for the record...my confusion about what this thread was going to discuss comes from the fact this is called "Brosnan's Best Film." I gotta learn to read the fine print. :)

"The Tailor of Panama". No, it's not a Bond film. But Brosnan was closest to Bond in it.

That what many people have said about his performance in not only that film. But the "The Thomas Crown affair" also. It leads one to think that the problem is related to script and directors. agree ?

Of the Brosnan Bond films "TWINE" is jusrt underrated , god only know why people favor "GoldenEye" over the others . Yes it revived the franchise , modernized Bond . Still "TWINE" his more character depth for Bond. "TND" is a Bond film that ask the question "what if John Woo was too diect a Bond " and we get the answer. Great entertainment. DAD was also good fun.

Actually, Kev, funny you should mention TWINE being underrated because the perfect example is another thread on the PB forums called UNDERRATED AND UNDERAPPRECIATED started by SIR JAMES. Holy ****! Reading the thread you wonder how TWINE can be neck and neck with DAD in this poll if it's so "awful." I think poor SIR JAMES's starting post and responses are, like, the only ones that are positive in it. So I posted my own to support him. To me TWINE was great. I think the numbers on these polls speak for themselves.

Read the thread if you haven't. You'll also see certain posters change their opinion on TWINE (from good in the past to bad in the present) just because a certain someone doesn't care for it. Of course, that's just my theory, but I've already observed that certain posters seem to have a cult-like hold over others around here.

Or maybe I was just born a crack baby:p

GoldenEye all the way. I am a fan of Tomorrow Never Dies, but its not my favourite, TWINE was probably Pierce's best acting performance, and I don't even see how DAD can be called ''good'', so its GE for me:)

Its amazing how two films which have been so bashed can be neck and neck with eachother for first. Like Sir James said, the silent majority has prevailed! Long live Brosnan!

"TWINE" is a classic Bond film. I feel that it was the "perfect" Bond film to take 007 into the 21st century. I loved DAD , it was Brosnan's "Moonraker" and "TSWLM" combined . Just like TND was "YOLT" and "OHMSS" . If Bond 21 is not something special . "TWINE" may will be Brosnan's "FRWL" .
