AVTAK           Tibbett and St. John Smythe, hilarious! I also love the settings.

FYEO             Still has best ski chase, maybe of all time

MR                 Love the ski dive sequence

TMWTGG       I little more interesting then TSWLM IMO

TSWLM          It was sweet seeing Bond in uniform

LALD             Most hilarious villein death of all time?

OP                 To much clowning around, great PTS and stunt work

It's only recently than Moonraker has been given some love by the fans. And it's about time!

 

So many things to love about Moonraker.

 

Very underrated.

For many years my answer has been FYEO, Moore's toughest, most thriller-like entry. Looking back at it now, I have to admit my reasons for this choice have more to do with circumstances outside the film than with the film itself.

I still enjoy FYEO to this day. But for sheer fun, for spectacle and also for thrills MOONRAKER has now overtaken its successor for me. It has the better villain, the better fight with the henchman, bizarre moments and horror elements. Granted, not all of it is top-notch. But the mix is solid and well-crafted. The silly elements for me don't get in the way of the whole thing, they are taken in stride with the confidence of a circus act.

It could very easily be my favourite film in the franchise. That's how much I like it.

Since THE SPY WHO LOVED ME was my introduction to the Bond universe nothing really can surpass that experience.

 

But MOONRAKER was the next one I saw in theatres.  Three times.  Which was a big deal at that time.  To this day, I love the film despite all its flaws, and it is definitely one of the most fun Bond films in the whole series.  And the score is maybe the best Barry score ever.

 

Oh, if a future Bond film could only conjure that much adventure...

Here's my revised list...

#1 - TSWLM

#2 - MR

#3 - TMWGG

#4 - FYEO

#5 - OP

#6 - AVTAK

#7 - LALD

I would really like to see another Bond movie in the lines of The Spy Who Loved Me.  Yes, I know parts are over the top, but I'd like to see a Craig Bond with brighter colors, great set pieces, car gadgets...more in lines of TSWLM.


By the way, I agree with several recent posts above.  Although TSWLM remains my favorite, MR is my solid #2 - Roger Moore film.

John Barry. Ken Adam. Shirley Bassey. All the big guns are in Moonraker. It follows the basic template of The Spy Who Loved Me, but I think the set pieces are better. It's a film with humour, no doubt, but it offers a whole lot more too. Particularly horror and suspense - the centrifuge is one of the best death traps in the franchise.

Horror and suspense indeed.

Corinne getting ripped apart by dogs and the scientists getting gassed are also worthy of mention. Bond's struggle with the python is also rather dramatic, and of course the Nazi master race scheme by Drax. Who is absolutely one of the best villains in the franchise, bar none. His dialogue is razor sharp.

Oh, absolutely!  And that all those moments are paired with silliness and yet it all works splendidly - that is a directorial quality I have not seen again in the following Bond films.

Yeah. I like the Craig films, but a movie like Moonraker is such a breath of fresh air these days. No personal vendettas or anything too serious. Just a big budget extravaganza with all the money on the screen. We're probably never going to see the likes of Moonraker again, which makes it seem all the more like a special sanctuary of sorts. I've been watching the 66 Batman TV series lately, and that same nostalgic warmth is present, particularly in Moonraker. It's a fun world where you forget your problems, and your imagination carries you away.

Exactly, and that kind of escapism would not only be embraced today, IMO, but also be needed to sustain the series for years to come.

 

I also like the Craig era - but I think it´s high time that the Bond films encourage pure adventure again.

I second all of these. Love to see love for the underrated MR. The first one I saw in the theater as a child. It's just pure, unpretentious escapist fun that never pretends to be anything more than that. My favorite Moore Bond film.

I rewatched MOONRAKER only the other day, smashing good fun.

One thing I noticed: Moore's suits are quite roomy, it looks as if you could tailor a full Craig suit just from one of his jackets.

I love how self-aware/matter of fact the film is to its own brand of high adventure. Case in point these exchanges between Bond and Moneypenny:

 

“Why are you so late?”

“I fell out of an aeroplane without a parachute…you don’t believe me do you?”

and

“James, you look as though you’ve just fallen off a mountain”.

“Well it’s funny you should say that Moneyenny, as a matter of fact I was in a cable car, and…never mind”.

 

Plus, even if some fans aren’t exactly thrilled about the space scenes and the laser guns, it’s hard to deny the last few moments of the film. “I think he’s attempting re-entry” is perhaps the ultimate Moore era pun. And when the disco version of Bassey’s song starts, it’s feel good to the point of being bittersweet. I think that’s Moonraker right there. Ethereal but full of fun.

I think the disco version of MR's theme is the best possible ending not only to the film but also to the whole wild and wacky decade of 1970s Bond films of DAF through MR.

Definitely. I don't hate FYEO, but I do view it as a misstep of sorts. I'm glad they went back to that lavish adventure template with Octopussy. And also A View to a Kill, which is severely underrated.
