Couldn't have said it better, except swap Dalton with Brosnan.I hate the Craig is falling behind Brosnan but I had to vote for Connery. He is the only choice. From there Craig hands down.
I'll just make a list:
4. Moore (Just because I grew up with him as Bond)
Spot on about Dalton.I think Dalton's Bond has gotten better with age. His violent portrayal was ahead of it's time. To me Brosnan's Bond was too much of a cartoon character.
Yea Brosnan gets dinged often as his non Goldeneye features are terrible.A lot of that had to do with the stories he was placed in. Those were all very "silly" to an extent.
Goldeneye is still fantastic tho.
