Best James Bond Films

An over-the-top tale filled with Connery charm, epic action sequences and a unique setting: Japan.

Years ago, this probably wouldn't have made the list. But thanks to Austin Powers, You Only Live Twice has re-established itself as a cultural icon, since most of Mike Myers' spoof was inspired by this 007 film. Dr. Evil's bald head and scar are obvious homages to Donald Pleasence's Blofeld, while the "hollowed out volcano" speaks for itself. Austin Powers aside, You Only Live Twice is an over-the-top tale filled with Connery charm, epic action sequences and a setting that is almost a character itself: Japan. Special credit also goes to John Barry's excellent theme song by Nancy Sinatra.
