There's certainly an argument to be made for more classic Sean Connery movies in the top 5. But we don't disagree with "Skyfall" as the most worthy James Bond film. This 2012 film was the first Bond film to be directed by "1917" director Sam Mendes. It was also our introduction to one of the most interesting Bond villains of all time, Raoul Silva (played by Javier Bardem). Bardem brought an unforgettable performance to the table. His twisted take on this villain earned him a Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actor. But we think he should have at least gotten a Golden Globe nomination.

The film also won two Academy Awards for Best Original Song and Best Sound Editing. "Casino Royale" was the film where Craig proved he had what it takes to be Bond. But "Skyfall" is where he showed audiences that he might be the best Bond since the early days of Connery. Kudos to Craig and his movie for taking the win! And we can't wait to see his final mission this weekend in "No Time to Die."

For those that might not agree with the pick, or maybe you just want to have a voice in our next decision, go to Motion Picks and vote for your favorites (and play lots of trivia) by downloading our Noovie Trivia App.
