    3. Humour - Diamonds Are Forever

    4. Suspense - From Russia With Love

    5. Plot - From Russia With Love

    6. Dialogue - Dr. No (Would’ve given this one to Goldfinger, but the Hood's Convention at Auric's Rumpus Room is just so awful. “Hey, what's that map doing up there?” I dunno, imagining Pride and Prejudice through the medium of interpretive dance, perchance... What a pillock)

    Overall
    FRWL (my 2nd favourite film of all time)

    2. Action
    CR (both chases and fights are visceral and exciting)

    3. Humour
    DAF (hilarious)

    4. Suspense
    FRWL (hasn't been beat imho)

    5. Plot
    FRWL (simple, but so effective)

    6. Dialogue
    TB (as good as it gets)

    7. Cinematography
    TSWLM (stunning in Egypt, in Suisse and in Italy. SF gets an honourable mention)

    8. Stuntwork
    TSWLM (exceptional throughout)

    9. Score
    OHMSS (the gold standard from Barry)

    10. Cast

    I DO, but it's only organically fascinating, not hilariously clever. It depends richly upon which you prefer.

    @ForYourEyesOnly, will you keep a tab on the score?

    Do you guys want me to? You guys know I don't have enough time to get on the board all the time, and I'm a rather infrequent user (and with work coming in at every angle, I doubt my situation will improve). It didn't exactly work in my tournament threads (if someone wants to take over as an admin for those they're welcome to), but threads where I didn't have to keep track of the score (like the car elimination game) are moving along fine without my presence. If someone wants to keep score here, they're more than welcome to. Otherwise, if you guys want, I'll try and keep score of this, but I can't guarantee anything.

    On a side note, I'm glad people mentioned Octopussy for stunt work. It has easily the most sustained amount of Moore's outrageous, awe-inspiring stunts that are just littered throughout the film. TSWLM and MR have some of the best stunts in history in the pretitle, but for the rest of the movie, I really don't think they can hold a candle to OP.

    Otherwise, I'm glad we're already seeing diversity in all the different posts here. That does make it very hard to keep score, but it means the thread is working, I guess.
