If I had to choose best 007 movies in terms of fun and entertainment I will not go with other than “Live and Let Die” 8th James Bond movie in which star Roger Moore was introduced for the first time for performing the secret agent role and he did with brilliance. He gave a new direction to Bond series he was calm when it comes to entertaining you he was best in the business, but don’t go wrong with him he had light weight attitude but bold too.
