    I'm not sure I passed my final judgment on SP yet. I thought it was about 8/10 initially, but I haven't really felt like rewatching it so far except once. In other words, it's rather definitely the only Bond movie I've only seen twice, and will probably downgrade it in my ranking.

    Since I've grown much fonder of MR over time, I choose MR in this case.

    But AVTAK is the worst Roger Moore film for me...with OP challenging that rank increasingly...I choose SP in the second comparison.

    SP, on both counts. Despite my love for the Barry scores, naturally.

    I have had an uneasy feeling lately that I have run the same matches more than once due to mistakes in my notes. So I decided to painstakingly go through the entire thread to check for this or any other mistakes.

    Sure enough, two matches have been done twice: YOLT vs TSWLM and YOLT vs GE. I apologize, but I am glad to report that those are the only ones, and the results were the same both times, so all it means is that we are now on round 123, not 124. The end result takes another week to get to. Scores have been corrected for those films and everything is now in order.

    As for me this round: SPx2.

    I don't really like either that much, although they do both have a great scores and one as a solid gold classic of a theme. The technical merit of MR needs to be celebrated as well.

    Unfortunately my feelings on SPECTRE are well documented and it sits at the bottom of my rankings for what I believe are more than justified reasons.

    Not even Craig being involved is enough for me to make my peace with this film, I don intend to watch it in 4K before I see NTTD though.

    If NTTD can make me feel that SP has more validation that will be a feat in itself.

    MR. I never thought I would vote for this one!
    AVTAK. And me voting for Moore’s final entry here is also a surprise. While its’ possible that I will grow to think more fondly of SP in time – especially if NTTD delivers the goods - for now it leaves me cold.

    I have a feeling that a strong NTTD may push SP even further back into the shadows for me.

    AVTAK vs DAD
    GE vs SF

    GE and SF are my 1 and 2 respectively. I'll go with a double dose of the Brozzod here.

    As for the current round:
    a double dose of SP
