    TB, easily.
    FYEO, it's definite, yet they are still only one space apart in my rankings.

    I think this is one of the hardest rounds I can recall for a while. Really enjoy all four entries here for different reasons. However there can only be two winners.

    TLD over TB

    While I absolutely love TB, I have to go with my favourite of the bunch, TLD.

    FYEO is good but LTK is better.

    VERY close competition here.

    TLD > TB - "Lies...spread by TB's competitors!"

    FYEO > LTK - "A Bond film, not Miami Vice, Q!"

    TB vs TLD (Pretty close one - my ranking from two weeks back has TB at 16 and TLD at 18).

    FYEO vs LTK (A bit wider, #10 vs #15. I really enjoy both, but FYEO has always been incredibly entertaining to me.)

    TB, and it's not close. A Bond film firing from all cylinders and I'm not Dalton's biggest fan anyway, although TLD is a fine film. Fiona Volpe is a top Bond girl.

    LTK, but I'm not a big fan of either. I don't get FYEO.

    TB vs TLD. Tough one. My favorite 1960s Bond film vs. my favorite post-1960s Bond film. The film with my favorite bad Bond girl(Volpe) vs. the film with my favorite good Bond girl(Kara). Ultimately I'm letting the classic original Bond era style influence my final decision here making this one of the very rare occurrences where I wouldn't vote in favor of TLD.

    My vote goes to TB


    FYEO vs LTK. Not as tough. In my dream world, a Bond film would exist with the Bond(Dalton) and villain(Sanchez) of LTK blended with the locations and leading lady(Bouquet's Melina) of FYEO. Since that film doesn't exist in reality I'm going with the film with the Bond actor who I think is better suited to the darker, more serious style of Bond films.

    My vote goes to LTK

    I'd choose TLD over Thunderball. They're both excellent films though.

    In contrast, FYEO and LTK are bottom 5 entries, possibly bottom 3, but I'll give it to FYEO because of Moore and the locations.

    Honestly, Thunderball is fairly overrated. It's pretty good, but there's no doubt in my mind TLD is better. It has a better balance of action, spectacle, intrigue and character, and it doesn't try to be so OTT that it outruns it's ambition, which is exactly what happened with Young.

    I really like FYEO, but I think Glen's more refined by LTK (to his own admission), and the story's more focused, and the action is better implemented to the story, and it also has Timothy Dalton at his best. And sorry, but Dalton is better than Moore at his best.

    TB Close as TLD just sits below TB

    LTK I have my issues with this but I've never been a massive fan of FYEO
