Welcome to another edition of our recurring feature here at FilmGoblin:  NERD FIGHT!

How it works is really simple:  A movie-related central supposition or motion is proposed, and then everyone everywhere can go full geek and debate that motion.

The only rules are:

1) Stay on topic.

2) No personal attacks / don’t be a dick!

3) Have fun.


The Motion

This Nerd Fight topic is proposed by Goblin Disqus contributor follower, Matchstick. Slapstick Matchstick. Thanks to him. Got an idea for Nerd Fight? See below for how to submit.

The specific supposition is this:

James Bond is awesome.  24 movies with the 25th coming next year.  56 years spanning 6 actors and COUNTLESS generations.

But which MOVIE is the best ever?

From Dr No (1962) to spectre (2015) there have been some good, some great, some duds, but to us one stands out as extraordinary.



Casino Royale (2006)

it made bond relevant again.  Reinvented and udated him.  From the opening assasination at the embassy to mr white by the italian lake, this movie is excellent.  It is the highest point of the series.


So there it is.  This one will be tasty.  Everyone has an opinion on the best Bond actor, the best gadget, the best movie.

What’s Yours?

Get your file from M, visit Q Branch on your way out the door.  Grab your PPK and use that Licence To Kill in Disqus.  “We’ve been expecting you, Mr Bond!”
