  • Looking for some 007 love to tide you over while you wait for "No Time to Die"?

  • Well, you're in luck.

  • There are a whopping two-dozen Bond films to choose from.

  • Is that a little too many?

  • Well, no need to get shaken or stirred because we've got you covered with a list of Bond films for whatever mood you're in.

  • If you're in the mood for something fun, try 1977's "The Spy Who Loved Me".

  • But, James, I need you.

  • So does England.

  • It's Roger Moore's third entry as the only guy who gets away with wearing a tuxedo outside of a wedding.

  • And it has some of the most over-the-top moments in Bond history, including a car that turns into a submarine and a ski chase with a perfectly-timed British flag parachute escape.

  • All those feathers, and he still can't fly.

  • Amidst all the charming cheese is Richard Kiel's Jaws, one of the best henchmen ever, and Agent Triple X played by Barbara Bach, who gives Bond a run for his money.

  • With considerable ease, I might add.

  • Now, if you're in the mood to go with the flow and watch a fan favorite, then it's got to be Casino Royale.

  • We pitted all 24 Bond films against one another in a Twitter bracket showdown, and after some very close calls,

  • including "Golden Eye"'s razor-thin victory over "Goldfinger" in the semifinals,

  • IMDb fans chose Daniel Craig's debut as a sleek modern 007 in the 2006 adaptation of Ian Fleming's first Bond novel.

  • Vodka martini.

  • Shaken or stirred?

  • Do I look like I give a damn?

  • The thrills are non-stop, from the parkour chase sequence through a construction site to Mads Mikkelsen's terrifying torture tactics to another all-in push at the river.

  • Yes, there is a lot of poker in this movie, but director Martin Campbell keeps it high-stakes the whole way.

  • That last hand... nearly killed me.

  • In the mood for an overlooked gem?

  • Go with "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", the one and only showing for George Lazenby's 007.

  • Why are they looking for you?

  • 'Suspect they're trying to kill me.

  • Lazenby nabbed the role over the likes of Michael Caine and Dick Van Dyke, true story.

  • And the result is some top-notch fight scenes, a face-off with a great nemesis in Telly Savalas' Blofeld, and an excellent pairing with Diana Rigg as Tracy.

  • People who want to stay alive play if safe.

  • Please stay alive... at least for tonight.

  • Don't let the one and doneness of Lazenby's performance throw you off.

  • He could rock a tan suit with an orange turtleneck and roll with the morbid puns just as smoothly as any other Bond.

  • He had lots of "guts".

  • If you want the comfort of a gold standard Bond, look no further than "Goldfinger".

  • What did you think we were gonna say?

  • Now, hear this, Goldfinger, your luck has just changed.

  • The third film in the franchise gives us Sean Connery as the James Bond who sets the bar for Bonds.

  • He drives an Aston Martin with all the gadgets.

  • He fights a henchman with an unusual power.

  • Hats off to you, Odd Job.

  • And he delivers a kiss that can change everything.

  • I must have appealed to her maternal instincts.

  • From Shirley Bassey's iconic theme song to a Bond girl named Pussy Galore...

  • It was a different time...

  • This is the film that kicked off secret agent mania and proved that a real man always wears a dinner jacket under his wetsuit.

  • I have some unfinished business to attend to.

  • On behalf of the entire MI6 team, we hope this helped you picked the perfect Bond movie, even though we left out a young Benicio Del Toro.

  • Where's my wife?

  • Don't worry.

  • We gave her a nice honeymoon.
