The James Bond franchise

The Good: The James Bond franchise is a special case -- it really fluctuates depending on the era and the current Bond. Sean Connery and Roger Moore are fairly universally liked, as well as current Bond, Daniel Craig."On Her Majesty's Secret Service" is also one of those sneaky Bond films that people forget about, but is considered by fans to be one of the best.The Bad: The Timothy Dalton years are pretty bad and we aren't in love with many of the Pierce Brosnan ones either.The Ugly: The absolute low point in the series was Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist named Christmas Jones.United Artists
