    I missed the last round for being away on holidays with a somewhat less than satisfying internet connection. Just for the record, I would have voted TND over the dismal OP, and in the absence of a possibility for a tie would have tipped the scale on behalf of GF, although I still find SF the best of the modern Bond movies.

    For the present round, FRWL beats everything in the entire series, and thus also FYEO. While the quality of the Brosnan movies has decreased step by step, from decent (GE) to disastrous (DAD), and thus GE must be the choice over the mess that is TWINE.

    It is possible to state your preference in just one of the two matches. Why wouldn t it ?

    FRWL. A true-blue classic. FYEO has grown on me over the years, however, and there are days where I think its Moore’s best outing.

    GE. The best of the Brosnan era and there is good chemistry between him and Izabella Scorupco.

    FRWL. The Connery-era original classic with the John Barry score easily beats the Moore-era's attempted recycling of it.

    and

    GE. I'll take spy movie Bond over soap opera Bond any day.

    That was so very easy...
  • FRWL (although FYEO is high up there)
    GE (TWINE IS the dullest movie in the franchise)

    GF vs. TND
    Feel a bit weird about this one. Never cared much for GF but TND was such a let down on my last watch saddly.There are a lot of things missing for me in TND which GF has in spades.

    FYEO vs. TWINE
    Not perfect but it ticks off most of the boxes i look for in a Bond film. Not a big FYEO fan.

    Excellent, iconic & classical vs. pretty good: GF
    Very decent (in spite of having lost the last round unanimously) vs. basically a boring POS: FYEO

    GF over TND soundly, even though TND has grown on me a lot.

    FYEO over TWINE easily.

    GF over TND. A Bondian classic that beats a fun entry in Brosnan's second outing.
    FYEO over TWINE. A film that has really grown on me over the years, easily beats my bottom ranked Bond film.
