Don't know if I'd say overrated but I prefer the Naked Gun films. Leslie Nielsen at his very best!

I don't think it's overrated. Yes some of the Naked gun movies are better, but it has some great lines and bits in it.

The original Jaws (1975), looks stunning in 4k such a brilliant soundtrack acting and direction from Spielberg, the trio of Scheider, Shaw and Dreyfuss superb.

Jaws 3 and 4 should be burnt and never shown again.

I’ve been watching a few Sean Connery James Bond films. I’ve seen all but Never Say Never and I own the majority of his films. I don’t have Never Say Never and Diamonds Are Forever.
I haven’t watched them in years and honestly forgot that I had a few.
I have a bunch of DVDs just in boxes so I really should start watching them as I have the time to do so.

I've always been a big fan of Sean Connery's Bond films. The best ones, imo.
I'd say Diamonds Are Forever is his least good, tho (his comeback), and as for Never Say Never Again, if you haven't seen it, it's a remake of Thunderball (it is an "unofficial" James Bond film).
Unfortunately, the Bond production has fought hard ever since the sixties to make the films more and more realistic, which is a shame. The whole charm of Connery's first films is totally lost.

You call the Pierce Brosnan films realistic?

I will admit, I have not seen any of the old Bond movies. But regardless of how good and charming some might be, no Bond movie will ever top Craig's Casino Royale. That film is an undisputed masterpiece.

Not a bad one, but imo, Craig's best is definitely Skyfall, which ranks easily amonst the top-5 of all Bond films.
Craig has also committed Quantum Of Solace, easily the worst of all Bond films.

:lol: Not really. But nothing can top the naivety of You Only Live Twice for example, when Houston get on their screens views of spaceship from outside, and with changing angles... :D I luuuuuuuuv that.

I’ve actually have never seen any of the Daniel Craig films and I don’t know why. I saw the last two Pierce Brosnan films and I was turned off by them.
Diamonds are Forever is my least favorite Sean Connery Bond film (again I’ve never seen Never Say Never). It’s the only official one of his that I don’t own on vhs/dvd/blu-ray. And honestly I don’t remember much of it so that says something.
The Roger Moore films did loose the Bond charm. They’re not all bad though. I remember liking The Spy Who Loved me. I used to have it on vhs. I’m, but Moonraker...yeah I’m not going there. 😁
