Amidst our superhero-obsessed world, October’s release of No Time to Die might have you remembering a certain someone who was running around and saving lives far before you fell asleep midway through the Snyder Cut: James Bond. Say what you want about Hollywood’s various portrayals of 007 over the past 70 (!) years, but nothing quite beats watching a good-lookin’ dude put on a tux, pull out a fancy gadget, and save the day.
That said, to get you properly hyped for Daniel Craig’s goodbye to the role, we’ve put together a guide to help you watch all of the Bond flicks out there. Of course, we’re not recommending that you tear through decades of 007’s evolution all at once—unless, hey, you really want to—but it couldn’t hurt to pregame No Time to Die with a martini and a rewatch of Dr. No. That’s all we’re saying. So pour one out for Mr. Craig, and enjoy.
*Note: We’ve thrown in some untraditional picks like the 1954 live television episode Casino Royale, but if you’re a purist (or a straight-shooter on a mission), feel free to skip titles with an asterisk.
