    GE is my number 4, but FRWL is my number 3.

    FRWL destroys QOS with ease though.

    I did not intend to criticize you... I was just curious why it FRWL was chosen a few times in a row...

    FRWL is GF's closest rival for my number 1 spot, GE is a solid Bond film:

    FRWL

    The second one is a tad closer, as QOS is a couple of spots above GE in my rankings, but:

    FRWL

    GE over FRWL for me personally. GE is a longtime personal favorite of mine, while FRWL is still awesome but not quite Top 5 on my list. FRWL beats QOS though.
  • From Russia With Love wins both for me.

    GE is very good, and I have it in my top 5. However, FRWL is just too good.

    QoS doesn't compare.

    FRWL wins both.

    FRWL defeats them both, but I really enjoy the heck out of QoS and GE.

    GE over FRWL by a mile.

    FRWL over QOS; an actual spy thriller over a pretentious film that just wants to be one.

    GE is my number one with FRWL nowhere near.
    FRWL is ahead of QoS though.

    Definitely FRWL in both cases. It's not even close(especially in the 2nd one).

    Whilst GE has risen in my ranking in recent years, it still can't compare to the overall appeal that FRWL has.
    QOS is just a Bond film that I find hard to enjoy. Craig is fine, and for the most part the performances are fine. But the film as a whole does nothing for me. A big step back after the wonderful CR.
    Therefore
    FRWL beats GE
    FRWL easily beats QOS

    FRWL wins both. It's my favourite Bond film.

    Even though GE is my favourite Brosnan film and I really enjoy QoS - especially after re-viewing it a week ago.

    FRWL beats GE slightly. This would have been the reverse for me from age 9 through HS, but in college is when FRWL took over and has sat there since. FRWL currently at the 5 spot and GE towards the back of the top 10

    FRWL beats QoS with ease. QoS is rising in my estimation, but still in the late teens to early 20s

    TSWLM vs FYEO: FYEO
    Spy is a great fantasy action Bond film but FYEO brings more of the Fleming seasoning.

    and

    FYEO vs AVTAK: FYEO
    Except in terms of music and pure sexual attraction by the female lead, FYEO outdoes AVTAK in every possible category.

    Easy.

    TSWLM, a perenial Top Six vs. a mid-teen entry.

    FYEO, a mid-teen entry (which still falls under the Very Good category) vs. a high-teen/low-20s.

    And I'm with him.

    TSWLM over FYEO: Moore's best Bond films along with LALD IMO. TSWLM is his #1 though, for simply having everything and more.

    FYEO over AVTAK: AVTAK has grown on me over time, but it's still one of Moore's weaker entries. FYEO, one of his best, takes it easily.

    TSWLM and AVTAK

    FYEO is my least favorite Bond film so the others take it by default.

    FYEO is my least favorite Bond film...

    You've probably explained why and I just don't remember, but that seems an odd choice for the bottom spot. Regardless of the fact that I like it pretty well, it does have a few major problems, but it seems that any issue that FYEO does have is worse elsewhere.

    Roger? He does a great job in this one.
    Story? There is a lot of great Fleming in this one. And a Tracey call back!

    There is some silliness (parrot, hockey, Thatcher), but that definitely gets trumped in MR and OP.

    Weak chemistry between Bond and the Bond Girl? There's enough of those to go around. The action is pretty strong. Weak villain? Yes. Weak score, but there are worse.

    I can see it not being a Top 20, but I'm surprised that anyone would put it rock bottom. Is it just a general boredom? That's why my number 24 is at the bottom.
