For some damn reason there is a James Bond movie on Skiffy. I want to see science fiction goddammit, not a fucking spy movie!

Well...some of the older ones were a bit out there in sci-fi land.

Well, if it was You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker or Die Another Day, they probably could be classed as sci-fi.

James' gadgets were routinely fantastic enough that the Bond films could be counted as scifi on that alone. Sure, it'd be a 'five minutes into the future' kind of scifi, but still.

I was thinking more in terms of sci-fi-heavy plots. Even films like On Her Majesty's Secret Service have a dash of technology to them (Safecracker/photostat machine, Omega virus, compact receiver and atomizer dispersal device in women's christmas gifts), but is by and large a very straight up action adventure with no real sci-fi tropes. Films like For Your Eyes Only and Casino Royale were completely free of all sci-fi signatures including gadgets. So there's a scale for these things.

I merely suggest that, while the late Cubby Broccoli would have argued vociferously against it, there are a few Bond films that actually were pretty damned close to sci-fi, though not really the entire series.
