    Same here. The first match is close, the second a slaughter.

    Both neck and neck, the closest double round for me yet.
    GE (by a hair; whichever one I decided on made me feel anxious about the decision. SF is a measurably better film for about three quarters then it tanks, GE is a decent to great film throughout)

    The last one is easy for me, despite both films being really strong entries in the series. Why GE wins? It has a much stronger finale IMO, two iconic Bond girls and stuff just makes more sense. SF has the better Bond and theme song, though, but only slightly. Still, overall, GE wins.

    A double dose of Brosnan Bond in this round for me:

    View has a great villain, but a lot of mediocre segments, especially the San Francisco bits.

    DAD really goes downhill when they go back to North Korea, but on balance it's more even than View.

    The second group is easier.

    Very close with AVTAK and DAD, I really like both films - I like View is a solid swan song for Moore and one which embraces his ageing Bond well, and I like Die for sheer fun factor. I thought I would be the only one to go for DAD but looks like I won’t be alone after all.

    Always enjoy Brossa and whilst Skyfall is my favourite Craig movie by a long way it has to GE for me.

    DAD and GE
    I love SF but GE is my all time favorite so it wins by default.

    DAD is dumb, but I'd rather watch it than an episode of Murder She Wrote starring 007.

    AVTAK. While both films near the bottom of my personal Bond list, I’ll give Moore’s last movie my vote here due to my love of John Barry’s score.

    GE. The opposite of above as both SF and GE are in my top ten. I could flip a coin between the two and be happy with either outcome. The presence of Izabella Scorupco as the “Bond Girl” pushes GE out in front today.
  • AVTAK- neither are particular favourites, but the last half of DAD is the worst hour of Bond ever. And at least AVTAK has Christopher Walken and Grace Jones.
    My gosh! My 3rd favourite vs. my 4th. They flip flop a lot depending on which one I watched last. By a hair I'll have to give it to SF but on another day it could be GE. Really hard one this week!

    Anything this side of Plan 9 from Outer Space beats DAD, so in this case, AVTAK.

    Nothing except FRWL beats SF in my book, and in comparison. GE is getting more mediocre all the time.

    AVTAK, by a landslide
    GE, by the skin of it's teeth.

    AVTAK beats DAD 20-6

    GE beats SF 16-10

    Round 124:

    MR vs SP


    AVTAK vs SP

    Although both are in the lower ranks, SP over MR every time.
    Similarly AVTAK is in the lower rankings for me, but more closely aligned with SP... This one is close, but right now I’d watch AVTAK over SP (it’s Zorin and Mayday that make it the victor today; tomorrow I could very well have a complete switch).
