    TB. Really close. In many respects TLD is a better movie (and I actually rank it higher), but TB iconic status gets my vote (sorry Ms. d’Ado – I still love you!).

    FYEO. Not as close. I’ve grown to like LTK more over the years, but FYEO is closer to “classic” Bond.

    Same. TB is actually on my top 3.

    TLD over TB

    FYEO over LTK just barely.

    This week is actually really close

    I might have to give it slightly to TLD and the Eyes but if you asked me a different week my answer might change.

    GF, which is among my top four, all rated 9/10
    LALD, a secret unreasonable obsession of mine, whereas OP is in my bottom five and destined to stay there

    GF over DN (Both good, but GF is just one of the very best)

    OP over LALD (I do not like either, but as bad as OP is, it is not as dull as LALD)

    GF, although it's close.

    and

    LALD - even closer. An extremely difficult choice .

    I wanted to go GF. But after last week's viewing of DN, it made me realize how much I enjoy DN more.

    Having watched both of them quite recently, I must admit I enjoyed DN a lot more too. There is something about DN’s atmosphere and low-keyism (if that’s a word) that I really like.

    LALD and OP have very distinctive appeals which I both like, but Cold War and East Germany feel much more Bondian than voodoo and supernatural even though I can appreciate that kind of thing as well.
