Welcome to the First Scene with James Bond elimination game.
I decided to make it the whole scene when James Bond, the character appears for the first time in a film. As a rule I tried to limit the scene to 3 to 4 minutes. In some instances that wasn't possible. OHMSS, LALD, AVTAK and SF are between 5 and 6 minutes.
As James Bond often appears in the PTS, there are a few instances where his first scene is in fact the whole PTS. That couldn't be helped I'm afraid, that would be AVTAK, CR and QOS and almost all of OHMSS' PTS.
I believe I came up with a reasonable solution, I have given this much thought. Hope you enjoy the game.
