Goldfinger ★★★★

“No Mr. Bond I expect you to die.”

And with that line, Goldfinger became the ultimate Bond antagonist. Blofeld might be the most well known Connery antagonist, but Goldfinger feels the most threatening. The first Q lab scene, the first cold open with Bond, Bond using his real name with villains. The movie has it all. Is it the best Bond? No. But it sure is fun. The whole Pussy Galore aspect of the plot is so icky and gross that it just removes a whole point from this movie. 

Up next: the first Craig.
