This one may get adjusted on second viewing.  But for now, I’m putting Daniel Craig’s third Bond film at #3.  Rebounding from the so-so Quantum of Solace, Skyfall breaks the Bond formula to the point where it barely feels like a Bond film.  Javier Bardem’s Silva is one of Bond’s creepiest and most memorable villains.  And Judy Dench’s M gets to take a central role.  Despite all the changes, Skyfall has just enough nods to Bond tradition to feel like 007 and not just an imitator.
