The Guess the Criteria Game

I had the idea for a new gane. I don't know if everyone is interested in this but I just thought it could be funny. It works like this:
Someone - the winner of the last game - presents a ranking of all Bond films (or a selection of Bond films) which is made according to an objective criteria, e.g. the length of the film.

The other participants may then guess the criteria by which the films are ranked. I don't know if this has been done before.

Here is a first list of the Bond films. May anyone guess the criteria by which the films are ranked?


01. Diamonds are Forever
02. Thunderball
03. Casino Royale
04. The World is not Enough
05. Skyfall
06. For Your Eyes Only
07. License to Kill
08. Octopussy
09. Moonraker
10. Goldeneye
11. Spectre
12. Goldfinger
13. Quantum of Solace
14. On Her Majesty's Secret Service
15. Tomorrow Never Dies
16. The Spy Who Loved Me
17. Die Another Day
18. You Only Live Twice
19. A View to a Kill
20. The Living Daylights
21. Live and Let Die
22. Dr. No
23. The Man With the Golden Gun
24. From Russia With Love

    Interesting game. Im stumped. I'm assuming these are objective, measurable criteria

    Number of deaths?

    Percentage of screentime given to Bond?
  • Budget adjusted for inflation?
  • Is the criteria objective or subjective?
  • OP says it's objective. If it were subjective, that could very easily be somebody's personal ranking of all the films given how wildly tastes vary on here. ;)

    it is objective. Unfortunately no one has guessed it yet.

    I may give you a hint: FRWL is very far behind all the rest.

    A good idea but that would take way to much time for me to measure it.

    Then LTK would certainly be at the bottom...
  • A couple of these don't seem to fit, but I'll guess: amount of time from the beginning of the film until we clearly see Bond's face, in ascending order?

    It is not correct but you are on the right track.
  • Amount of time until Bond speaks?

    Amount of time until Bond speaks?

    That is it. Congratulation! The time until Bond speaks starting from the beginning of the gun barrel which does not exist in the first three Craig films why these are probably a little bit higher on the list. The last four films do not have Bond speak before the title sequence. In FRWL it takes more than 17 minutes before Bond speaks the first time whereas it only takes 32 seconds in DAF. I can give you the precise numbers in the evening...

    So @Some_Kind_Of_Hero
    if you want you may give us a new objective ranking.

    Wow, awesome! Okay, give me a day or two to think something up. If anyone has something ready to go, you have my blessing to jump on in.

    Why don't I toss in a simple one to keep things going while SKoH thinks his up? The next round will still be his regardless of who gets this one. Based on the info I have I can only go up to QoS, but this would be applicable to SF and SP as well, I just don't have the stats. Ranked in ascending order.

    22: The Man with the Golden Gun
    21: Dr. No
    19: On Her Majesty's Secret Service (TIE)
    19: A View to a Kill (TIE)
    18: Diamonds Are Forever
    17: Live and Let Die
    16: Goldfinger
    15: Licence to Kill
    13: From Russia With Love (TIE)
    13: Casino Royale (TIE)
    12: Moonraker
    11: The Living Daylights
    10: Octopussy
    9: Quantum of Solace
    8: For Your Eyes Only
    7: Thunderball
    6: You Only Live Twice
    5: The World is Not Enough
    4: Tomorrow Never Dies
    2: The Spy Who Loved Me (TIE)
    2: Die Another Day (TIE)
    1: GoldenEye

    Number of kills by Bond.


    My thinking too. A big hint is how Brosnan is classed as the most lethal Bond, statistically, hence his films being high rankers on the list.

    Yeah, that was it. Simple, like I said.

    I would think Bond blowing up all of those guys in the OP PTS, or the two nuclear subs in TSWLM would top the list.

    Well, the film is tied for second, after all.

    I'm tempted to say budget but that's not it...
  • GBFGBF

    I guess it has something to do with the budget. Maybe the money they paid to the main villain?
  • I certainly don't mind.

    Time spent with Mi6 crew?
  • Nope, not anything to do with budget or time spent with Mi6 crew.
