    SF. Not exactly enthused about this one, but View isn't a gem for me either.

  • FRWL - better story, locations, pacing, and leading lady
    Skyfall - everything is better than AVTAK other than the score and song

    OHMSS (didn't even have to think about that one, chalk and cheese)

    TB (again top 10 favourite against a flawed and jarring film not really to much to think about there)

    Round 130:

    OHMSS vs MR

    and

    TB vs LTK

    Personally I think From Russia With Love will always outrank Goldfinger as the latter was the film that introduced gimmicks to the franchise. While it definitely began the archetypal formula for the Bond franchise, it also introduced elements that would later be taken to the extreme, IMO. That's my two cents at least. However, I do love Goldfinger and it's iconography is undeniable.

    On Her Majesty's Secret Service over Moonraker because it's my favourite film with my favourite Bond. MR was formerly my favourite film of the Moore era and remains his best performance in the role, IMO.

    Thunderball over Licence To Kill because it's my second favourite film with Connery's definitive performance in the role. He exudes animal magnetism and is cool as all hell in his fourth film. The relationship between Bond and Largo. Domino. Fiona. Palmyra. Terence Young. Tom Jones. John Barry. It all comes together here in a far more satisfying package then what preceded. Licence To Kill is an upper echelon film for me. I've always loved it, but unfortunately it can't compete with Thunderball's excellence.

    There’s always one (and in this case I suspect I’m going to be very lonely) so for me it’s MR

    And whilst it’s not one I choose to watch often, I’ll go for TB

    For the second one I want to go for a draw, but in the end I've got to go for TB.

    @Max_The_Parrot is not the only one to stand out amongst the pack and choose MR! It finished 2019 at the top of my rankings for the three of the last four years.

    LTK and TB have traded spots over the years, but LTK has been surging up my rankings in the past two years.
