I would have "Goldfinger" a little closer to the top, as well as "Man With The Golden Gun" (no, it is not a gold thing - I just love these two). The rest I would keep relatively the same.
The only one I am tossed about is your selection of "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" at # 2. Although I like the film, I think you could have had it as a stand-alone rather than a Bond movie. Nothing against George Lavenby, but it did not have the same fun / highly fictional feel that most Bond movies had.
As an extra point, who here has played Bond-Sculls? For those that do not know what it is, all you need is a few friends - all equipped with a shot-glass; bottle of their favourite spirit; T.V.; video player; couple of Bond movies. Every time the name "Bond" is spoken, it is bottoms-up. Gets interesting when you get the usual scene of:
James Bond: "The name is Bond (scull), James Bond (scull)"
Evil Babe: "I have been expecting you Mr. Bond (scull)".
Evil Dude: "Mr Bond (scull), fancy seeing you here".
