Actor Honor Blackman died on April 5 at the age of 94 due to natural causes. Though she also appeared in the television series “The Avengers,” “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” and more, Blackman is best known for her role as Pussy Galore in the third James Bond film “Goldfinger” and is considered by many to be the definitive Bond girl.
Much has changed in the 007 franchise since Pussy Galore teamed up with super villain Goldfinger to break into Fort Knox. Many Bond girls have come and gone, just as numerous actors — including Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig — have portrayed the British special agent.
In honor of Blackman’s legacy, 24/7 Tempo has looked back at the series and ranked all the James Bond feature films from worst to best using online audience and critic ratings from Rotten Tomatoes and the Internet Movie Database.
Fans of the franchise recently suffered another disappointment when it was announced that the release of the 25th official Bond movie — “No Time to Die” — had been delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Originally scheduled to open on April 10 in the U.S., the film has been rescheduled for a Nov. 25 release. Here are 45 movies that have been delayed due to the novel coronavirus.
Fortunately, while enthusiasts wait patiently for the latest installment, several classic Bond flicks have been added to Amazon Prime as of April 1. These include “Goldeneye,” which is available in 4K UHD (Ultra High Definition). For those looking for something new, these are the best movies you’ve never seen.
To determine the best James Bond feature films of all time, 24/7 Tempo created an index based on each film’s Rotten Tomatoes average critic rating, Rotten Tomatoes average audience rating, and the Internet Movie Database average user rating.
We averaged the user ratings from Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb, weighted by the number of votes for each. The combined user rating was then averaged with the Rotten Tomatoes critic rating. Domestic box office data comes from IMDb and is not adjusted for inflation. Favorable reviews refers to the percentage of users who rated each film a 3.5 out of 5 or above on Rotten Tomatoes.
