    Both of these are quite hard, but I think I will give it to NSNA (seeing Connery back a seventh and final time was more exciting than was the case with Moore) and FYEO (far better finale and Bond girl. Funny that both feature the demise of Blofeld involving a helicopter).

    NSNA. Its’ amazing how similarly both movies cast their villains: Klaus Maria Brandauer vs. Christopher Walken, Barbara Carrera vs. Grace Jones; so ultimately my vote comes down to seeing Connery portray Bond as someone closer to his real age. The Moore / Roberts pairing was....aren't there laws against that?

    FYEO. Easy decision

    That's what she said.

    :D And both give 2+ hours of satisfaction.

    Already 57!

    Interestingly, the Moore – Roberts pairing doesn’t represent the largest age difference during Roger’s tenure as Bond. That goes to FYEO’s Carole Bouquet (30yrs). However, since she had fewer “oh..James” moments, I always give her a pass.

    That's one reason I wish Carole Bouquet's Melina had played opposite Dalton's Bond instead. Moore and her seemed more like father and daughter to me making their final love scene not much less awkward than Bibi Dahl's failed seduction attempts in the same film (Lynn Holly Johnson is only a year younger than Carole Bouquet.)

    LALD over TWINE

    while i like the TWINE, i often times get annoyed by what kind of movie it wants itself to be.. i call it the bipolar Bond movie, because it rides the line of a serious drama - trying to expand Bond's character and go deeper while also trying to adhere to the traditional Bond formula - and i think in a lot of instances the film just doesn't mesh those two together well... i've gotten a fonder appreciation for it over the years, but i still prefer the audacious fun of LALD to it...

    CR over TMWTGG

    there isn't much to say here - CR runs away with it in every statistical category you can rate these films with... TMWTGG is the Bond film equivalent of a quaalude and a warm glass of milk lol.

    LALD > TWINE - "Perhaps we could try something in an even simpler vein."

    CR > TMWTGG - "Aces win."

    LALD beats TWINE with considerable ease I might add.

    CR beats TMWTGG slightly closer, though the compensations speak for themselves.
