Girls, Bond Girls.

MSNBC.com lists its 5 Top Bond Girls and EW,com counts down its ten worst, but I don't care what they say:

Four Worst

4. Stacey Sutton (Tanya Roberts, A View to a Kill). All steam, no substance.

3. Paris Carver (Teri Hatcher, Tomorrow Never Dies). Secondary good girl to Chinese operative Wai Lin (Michelle Yeoh), she met a quick end.

2. Jinx (Halle Berry, Die Another Day). New Oscar winner Berry takes a paid break from acting.

1. Dr. Christmas Jones (Denise Richards, The World is Not Enough).


Four Best

4. Xenia Onatopp (Famke Janssen, GoldenEye). A vintage, quirky killer vixen.

3. Pam Bouvier (Carey Lowell, Licence to Kill). An American intelligence operative and former Army pilot. Feisty, independent. Pretty good with a shotgun, too.

2. Tracy Di Vicenzo (Diana Rigg, On Her Majesty's Secret Service). Bond married her. 'Nuff said.

1. Fiona Volpe (Luciana Paluzzi, Thunderball). The inspiration for Austin Powers' Alotta Fagina.



BOND
Wild. You should be locked up in a cage.

FIONA VOLPE
This bed feels like a cage. All these bars. Do you think I'll be...safe?

My favorite was Pussy Galore, played by Honor Blackmon. Yeah, the name was a joke, but she was a terrific foil in the best Bond film.

And playing a nuclear physicist, Denise Richards just oozed authenticity, didn't she?
