    Both of those are good. I will go with Quantum of Solace. Bond walking away after the shot is a nice touch.

    Die Another Day: it's in the bloody start for starters, the music is better and the design is better as is bond's walk/pose.

    I'm of the school of thought who doesn't mind the bullet... I honestly don't understand why they keep complaining about it, specially after QOS and SF, which were just disgusting.

    I couldn't agree more. Please note I've already voted.

    I will give it to OHMSS, as I love the nod to Dr No with the producer credits.

    Well, I find Lazenby's performance better, but I actually think I like the score for the DAF gunbarrel better, and OHMSS's gunbarrel is chock-full of editing issues. I'm not a fan of Bond getting erased by the descending blood, or the gunbarrel vanishing before the blood fully trickles down. And LOL @ the treadmill. The producer credits are a nice element, but the OHMSS gunbarrel loses those points immediately for the overwhelming length of the entire sequence. It works for Dr No, but the OHMSS one just feels off (to no fault of Lazenby's, of course). There's something else, which is a lot more minor. However, I like the way the luminescence of the gunbarrel in DAF is erased as the blood comes down. In OHMSS, Bond is erased but not the luminescence, so we get a laughably poor result.

    So honestly, I might have to go give this one to Diamonds Are Forever.

    Noooo two of my all time favourites. I'll have to say DAF though a lovely undertone of menace to the instrumentation.
