I remember seeing Dr. No as a kid and being hooked. I'd have to say that I agree with most that Connery is the best Bond, with Brosnan a close second (if only the offer for the Bond role had come before Remington Steele--ah, what could have been). As for the film, I don't know to be honest. I have favorite moments throughout the films, but I don't think I could chose one over the others (though Goldfinger is up there).

Roger Moore is my favorite Bond and the man with the Golden gun ios my favorite Bond movie. Saw them way back with my grandfather and just really get nostalgic when watching them.

Brosnan?

I haven't and cannot watch any film with that moron in it. He has absolutely no screen presence, the guy is devoid of charisma. He's boring.

Roger Moore was the best Bond followed by Daniel Craig.

Timothy Dalton, easily the most believable Bond (only rivalled by Daniel Craig.. and he isn't suave enough to make a good Bond).

Favourite film is probably Goldeneye, although License to Kill is a pretty close second. Both are pretty immense.

EDIT- I wonder if you could age people based ony their responses. I doubt many who grew up before the 'new' bonds (pre-craig) would really think of Daniel Craig as a Bond, and those who have grown up with Craig but have possibly then watched the older films would vote for anyone else... the films just seem so utterly different.
Personally i like the old films for being story/character driven (which the new ones certainly aren't) and the new ones for being exciting (ala Bourne), but they are of radically different styles.

Man, I can't remember the last time someone said Moore was the best Bond. How can you get over the fact his films are pure cheese? I think he's really bland and doesn't seem like he could hurt a fly.

As for Craig, I actually think HE did pretty well, but I thought both the stories he was in were a little weak and nonsensical, I mean, what was that whole chase through the construction yard about?.

But, Sam Mendes is a great director, so hopefully he'll get a good story, and we'll see how he does. Oh, and the next Moneypenny is going to be black for some reason. So that'll be interesting, to see if she's good or its just a PC move.
