In my opinion, Goldfinger is the best Bond movie. It’s a damn good movie on its own merits, even. I put Goldfinger up there with Raiders of the Lost Ark when it comes to fun and cool action/adventure movies. Stop reading this and go out and watch this movie right now, actually.
James Bond has to stop a madman named Auric Goldfinger, who has some massively evil scheme that, of course, involves gold somehow. Bond gets captured by Goldfinger and his mute henchman Oddjob and has to get aid from Goldfinger’s personal pilot, Pussy Galore. Ian Fleming sure knew how to name a character, you gotta give him that.
There are a lot of classic Bond elements in this film (LIKE GOLD! AHHHHH HAHAHAHA), lasers, Oddjob throwing his hat, that fight at Fort Knox, the dead naked chick covered in gold paint… Damn, this movie is so good. I don’t want to say anything else about Goldfinger before I start looking like a complete fool.
