These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
The theme song is a rare one without lyrics, allowing it to take on quite a life of its own outside the film (the only other theme that's come close to this kind of success is "Live and Let Die").
The Louis Armstrong song "We Have All the Time in the World" is also great, arguably the most romantic song in the series.
Evil Is Cool: Blofeld has a resort full of beautiful women in the Swiss Alps, totally flummoxes England until Bond teams up with Draco, and is played by a young and suave Telly Savalas. What's not to love?
Love It or Hate It: This is perhaps the film that viewers liked the least in the Bond series. But of course, there are just as many people who love it...
Magnificent Bastard: This is Blofeld's finest hour. The west is ready to cave in to his demands, and only Bond going rogue and teaming up with a crime lord saves the day. Even then, he still gets his revenge.
Magnum Opus: To EON and many fans of the series, this is the best Bond film ever made.
Even Lazenby is considered to be Vindicated by History by many fans; lots of Bond and film critics now think he did great, most of the movie's bad reputation now almost solely falling on Lazenby's authentic failure of an agent.
"We Have All The Time in The World" was reportedly Satchmo's last recording. He died in 1971.
Tracy's backstory and death.
Values Dissonance: Draco slaps Tracy unconscious when she refuses to leave without Bond, and commments "Spare the rod and spoil the child, eh?"
To be fair, he was trying to save her life.
Vindicated by History: Among fans, anyway. The film was not well recieved when it was first released (for reasons regarding Lazenby), but since then many fans of the series regard it as a classic. Also, EON Studios has demonstrated their own love of the film on numerous occasions.
While the casual moviegoer or average film critic tends to think Goldfinger is the best Bond movie, hardcore Bond fans- and Bond fans who happen to be respected movie critics- have a good chance of listing this film as greatest in the series. Thats how vindicated it has become.
