Favourite Brosnan Bond by performance by Pierce Brosnan

Sorry, you can’t choose The Thomas Crown Affair. Tough. It has to be one of the below. I know that’s harsh. Cope.

Seems I like GoldenEye better than I thought.

I found that too. David Arnold works and TND pre-titles were the only outliers!

I’m surprised how often I voted for THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH.

I may get shot…but TND has the worst title theme in the Brosnan run by far! Made worse by Surrender being so much better.

Summary

I should say I’m not even approving Die Another Day, just I really don’t like Sheryl Crow’s effort.

By a country mile, TWINE has the best, I think it’s being reflected in the voting too

@Jim thanks for this perfect distraction!

If I’m honest I can’t even remember what the villain sceme’s were from TWINE and DAD.

A lot of Goldeneye votes from me. More than I expected if I’m honest.

My choices were:

Favorite villain: Alec Trevelyan (GoldenEye)
Favorite leading lady: Natalya Simonova (GoldenEye)
Favorite villain’s scheme: Tomorrow Never Dies
Favorite henchperson: Xenia Onatopp (GoldenEye)
Favorite Bond performance: Tomorrow Never Dies
Favorite title song: GoldenEye
Favorite score: Tomorrow Never Dies
Favorite pre-titles sequence: Tomorrow Never Dies
Favorite title sequence: GoldenEye

TOTALLY across the board.

Great minds think alike.

Favorite villain: Alec Trevelyan
Favorite leading lady: Wai Lin
Favorite villain’s scheme: Tomorrow Never Dies
Favorite henchperson: Xenia Onatopp
Favorite Bond performance: Die Another Day
Favorite title song: The World Is Not Enough
Favorite score: Tomorrow Never Dies
Favorite pre-title sequence: Tomorrow Never Dies
Favorite title sequence: Goldeneye

Tomorrow Never Dies edging Goldeneye out 4-3, and some of those calls could go either way, such as the soundtracks and villain schemes which I like equally and for different reasons. They’re his best two films, and very good Bond movies in their own right.

Wai Lin was a kickass ‘Bond equal’ done right. Xenia is an instant classic. The Garbage song has a melancholia that appeals to me, and given the family motto, it feels like an appropriate anthem for Brosnan’s Bond in the way Nobody Does It Better is for Moore.

I think Brosnan’s best Bond performance is from Die Another Day. Some of my favourite Brosnan moments come from that film - entering the Hong Kong casino soaking wet, knocking out the man for the wheelchair, and the sword fight. I think he felt the most comfortable here.

I’m shocked I actually voted for Die Another Day for something. Also, I’m sad I couldn’t choose Dante’s Peak or Mamma Mia for best Brosnan performance.

What category?

Best title sequence.

Good choice.

I like the Garbage song, but the title sequence itself didn’t excite me like Brosnan’s other three.

I really like how it incorporates Bond’s torture and actually makes some of the sequence part of the actual story. It’s kind of the same reason that I love Skyfall’s PTS so much. That one really seems like Bond’s fever dream.

I ranked Garbage’s song the best of Brosnan’s.

Same.

As for my favourite Brosnan vehicle, I choose the BMW 750iL.

I like the Vanquish, but BMW is so exclusively Brosnan era (like how Moore drove a Lotus) that it feels appropriate going with it. The car park sequence in question is also really good.
