    No idea which is the first James Bond film I saw, while Goldeneye was the first James Bond film I saw in the cinema by that time I had already seen all the James Bond films.
    I disagree, the pre-credit sequence of Moonraker is pretty darn good and probably the only impressive part of the film.

    I'm not sure which Bond film I saw first, but GoldenEye the game was my first major exposure to the franchise. First seen in a theater was definitely Casino Royale.

    Saw Skyfall last night. I really liked it. All the elements came together really well, and it seemed like a great culmination of the last 50 years of Bond films, as well as a great culmination for the Craig films alone.

    First one I saw was Moonraker. I loathed it and it put me off the films for years. Literally, years. Then i caught Goldeneye on television and I was suddenly interested in the franchise again. Never looked back. Well, looked back a few times . . . (diamonds are forever . . . arguably worse than all the Moore films except Moonraker).

    ^My family was living in Holland at the time Moonraker came out, and I was too young to see it at the cinema there - my mother took me to see it, but we were told even with adult accompaniment they wouldn't let in a child who was under 13 years of age. I was upset. Little did I realise that I had been saved from a traumatic viewing experience which could have destroyed my faith in the Bond films.

    I can't remember the first Bond-film I saw, since I had seen them all while I was still quite young. I think it could have been A View to a Kill or the non-EON Never Say Never again. I think I come to the Bond franchise from a bit of a different view since to me they have always been the films the family gathered around and that all of us enjoyed, which means that I prefer the lighter Moore films to the Connery ones.

    The first I saw in the cinema was GoldenEye. At the time you had to be 15 to see it, and I sneaked in at the age of 13. It says a lot about changing standards in films in that I saw Skyfall together with my 12 year old nephew, and he didn't have to sneak in since it's allowed from 11, or 7 together with an adult.

    The first one I remember seeing was The Living Daylights on TV. I think Kara Milovy ended up being my first crush. The first one I saw in theaters was Tomorrow Never Dies.

    It's called "Hashima" and it's actually in Japan.

    That you didn't know that means you don't read Cracked. [face_plain] I actually got a kick from seeing it in the movie.

    I don't read Cracked, and I recognised the place anyway. Not the name, but what it was.

    Lazenby's one struck me as almost realistic, in terms of trying to make himself a smaller target. But, he was ex-Army, so...

    Funny, I was going to say that Connery even wins that.

    Does Moore's gun even fire? :p

    Brosnan's is by far the worst. He just kind of stiffly spins, whips his arm up, and leans funny. He's the only one who doesn't look even remotely like he's actually attempting to fire a gun.

    Lazenby gets the shot off -- you can see a little puff of smoke right at the end. Moore's the only one who's got to get out his glasses and line up the shot first.

    But Havac, when Moore was a child, they didn't have all this fancy newfangled gun nonsense. You'd take your time and make sure your musket was nice and loaded, take a minute or two to aim, and then fire only when he was absolutely sure of a hit.
