**blogger’s note: updated as of 11/05/15 with Spectre
After watching all 24 official James Bond pictures and writing blog posts on each averaging around 1,000 words, we’ve arrived at what may be my final 007 Files entry for a while.
I may find something Bond related to blog about, but the next major post will likely be when the fourth Daniel Craig film is released, probably in late 2014. There will be one likely exception. When I see the well-known “unofficial” Bond picture, 1983’s Never Say Never Again with Sean Connery, I’ll post about that. Until then, I’ve now compiled my list ranking all movies from the worst to the very best.
For those reading along, #23 may be a good number for basketball players, but it isn’t here. That number signifies my least favorite Bond film and we work up from there. You’ll forgive me if I don’t comment on the rankings (been there, done that), but I am providing a link to the original post on the films, along with the trailer.
And with that, my final rankings after a month and a half blogging Bond:
24. Die Another Day (2002)
23. Moonraker (1979)
22. Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
21. The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)
