Released in the US as The Upper Hand and in Japan and other English speaking markets as Rififi In Paris, this great late Film Noir directed by Denys de la Patelliere stars Jean Gabin, Mireille Darc, Gert Frobe and golden age movie villain George Raft in a gangster movie where Paris is the centerpiece (Paname means Paris in French slang).

TOP 10 JAMES BOND MOVIES

image

NUMBER 1: GOLDENEYE starring PIERCE BROSNAN, ISABELLA SCORUPCO, SEAN BEAN: I adore this movie.  I love the plot, the villains are amazing en Natalya Simonova is a great bond girl. This movie is awesome! When I first watched the movie I was blown away. I really like it and it was so much fun. By the way: the movie’s henchmen is superb!

image


NUMBER 2: GOLFINGER starring SEAN CONNERY, HONOR BLACKMAN, GERT FROBE: Goldfinger is amazing. It has some of the best Bond moments and (agian) one of the best bunch of villains. It’s a good story and great cast and it works in many ways. 

image

NUMBER 3: CASINO ROYALE starring DANIEL CRAIG, EVA GREEN, MADS MIKKELSEN: When I first watched this movie I was blown away by the amazing Eva Green. She is the best bond girl and her death is amazing and tragic. Bond is really good here and it is such a cool and dark movie. It is really different and unique in a good way!

image

NUMBER 4: THE SPY WHO LOVED ME starring ROGER MOORE, BARBARA BACH, RICHARD KIEL: The amazing Spy who loved Me is a classic and I always like to watch it. Roger Moore is really good as Bond here and Barbara Bach is a good Bond Girl. The best thing are the stunts and sets. The explosions are awesome and the action scenes are thrilling!

image

NUMBER 5: ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE starring GEORGE LAZENBY, DIANA RIGG, TERRY SAVALAS: This amazing movie has the best story from all the Bonds. It is so unique. Diana is an amazing bond girl, but Lazenby is really weak as Bond. 

image

NUMBER 6: SKYFALL starring DANIEL CRAIG, JAVIER BARDEM, JUDI DENCH: the latest movie is a really good one and very unique. I like the story and the cast. It is very mysterious movie and the concept is really nice. 

image

NUMBER 7: LIVE AND LET DIE  starring ROGER MOORE, JANE SEYMORE, YPETHH KOTTO: Live and Let Die is fun, good and easy to watch. I like to see it, only because I like the story. Live and Let Die has it’s flaws: but it is really fun to see at a lazy sunday afternoon! 

image

NUMBER 8: FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE starring SEAN CONNERY, LOTTE LENYA, ROBERT SHAW: This movie explains the spy life the best. It is so dark and there is so much double-crossing. The cast is again superb and it has really cool action scenes. 

image

NUMBER 9: FOR YOUR EYES ONLY starring ROGER MOORE, CAROLE BOUQUET, JULIAN GLOVER: This movie is way better that Moonraker. For Your Eyes Only was more serieus than it predecessor. I l like the story and the only problem with this movie is the STUPID BIBI DAHL!!

image

NUMBER 10: THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH starring PIERCE BROSNAN, SOPHIE MARCEAU, DENISE RICHARDS: This movie isn’t the best for sure! But we have a female villain, M gets involved in this movie and Pierce Brosnan is amazing as James Bond. I admit this movie has it’s flaws (uhum.. Denise Richards…), but it is really fun to watch! And Robbie Coltrane is back!
