You Only Live Twenty-Thrice: “The Spy Who Loved Me”

In Roger Moore's best Bond outing, 007 shows he still has the ol' razzle-dazzle thanks to jaw-dropping stunts & his most formidable foe, and love interest, yet.

You Only Live Twenty-Thrice: “The Man with the Golden Gun”

Save sexual impulses, Roger Moore never showed 007's human side. But he comes closest in what's otherwise a mediocre romp with a wonderfully malevolent villain.

You Only Live Twenty-Thrice: “Live and Let Die”

Roger Moore would have higher highs and lower lows. Still, "Live and Let Die" is a fine introduction to a 007 more prone to crack wise than crack heads.

You Only Live Twenty-Thrice: “Diamonds Are Forever”

"Diamonds" is less about Sean Connery's grand finale and more about James Bond's birth into the free-spirited 1970s. Fitfully amusing, but still small-time.

You Only Live Twenty-Thrice: “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”

Neither unsung masterpiece nor unmitigated disaster, George Lazenby's lone Bond outing is half terrible, half tremendous and awkward all the way to the end.

You Only Live Twenty-Thrice: “You Only Live Twice”

After the turgid "Thunderball," this stunner rights Bond's ship with imaginative action, impeccable design and flourishes that bury the needle on coolness.

You Only Live Twenty-Thrice: “Goldfinger”

"Goldfinger" kills off some parts of 007 we've come to know so that others could live for most of the next 40 years ... just the way America likes it.

You Only Live Twenty-Thrice: “From Russia with Love”

Mostly bereft of action for 90 minutes and with a smaller-scale villainous plot, "Russia" is far from the biggest Bond. But it is atop the list of the best.
