    FRWL and OHMSS are in my eternal top three so they win.

    Another easy round. Definitely FRWL and OHMSS for me.

    Why are we making these so easy?

    FRWL vs MR - while Moore's fourth outing will always have a special place in my heart for the sheer audacity of the undertaking (it's still visually an epic feast that has yet to be bettered to this day imho), FRWL is my firm #1 film. So no contest. It's perfection to me. A relatively unique 'realistic' tight suspense thriller that predates the now somewhat stale formula.

    OHMSS vs QoS - OHMSS by far. It's a film that improves with every viewing for me and one that continues to increase in my rankings. It really is classic Bond at its finest. A real achievement which in some ways has an old school Hollywood vibe to it while still being distinctly British. QoS has its moments and there is a lot to like (Kurylenko, Arterton and Almaric as well as a killer performance from Craig), but I can never rank it too high because it comes across as being a bit too influenced by contemporary action fare to me. A bit too busy.

    MR over FRWL

    OHMSS over QOS

    Another easy choice.

    Wow so easy.

    FRWL over MR - Pretty sure I prefer everything about Connery’s second to Moore’s fourth. A Top 10 Bond film vs. a bottom 3 one for my list.

    OHMSS over QOS - QOS is a middling Bond in my book, which means it’s decent but still not nearly as good as OHMSS, which is my second favorite Bond film. Again, pretty much everything about OHMSS is preferred for me over QOS.

    FRWL vs MR: FRWL

    Despite my love for MR, I concede that FRWL is one of the very best (Bond) films ever made.

    OHMSS vs QOS: OHMSS

    QOS is a decent film but OHMSS is superb.

    FRWL; was this one even worth it?

    OHMSS; two of my Top Ten, but Lazenby's single turn is in that upper echelon of Bond films, with only three (maybe four) peers in the franchise.
  • Alright guys I know a lot of you actually really like QoS for some reason but if just one of you picks it over OHMSS then you'll kill my faith in humanity completely and it might even drive me to suicide. My life is in your hands.

    But yeah, OHMSS and FRWL, no contest.

    I love MR, but FRWL is a plain better film and a plain better Bond film. Prime Connery.

    And I'm probably less sympathetic to OHMSS than most here but it utterly crushes QoS. Some good ol' 60's magic stomps all over shitty editing and a writer's strike. In retrospect, QoS didn't do too badly with what it had, but "not too badly" doesn't compare to one of the series' finest.

    Round 4:

    FRWL VS MR. Since this is going to be a massacre I'll cast a sympathy vote for the first Bond film I ever saw in the cinema as a child.

    and

    OHMSS VS QOS. Not even close.

    FRWL is my favourite Bond film of all time and OHMSS is my third favourite of all time. So easy wins for them.

    MR and FRWL both in my top 5, but MR is still my overall top.

    OHMSS easily over QoS. Enjoying QoS more these days, but OHMSS is still a solid 10-15 ranks ahead.

    FRWL and OHMSS win this round, but I do enjoy the other two. They just happened to go up against two juggernauts.

    Not even worth bothering with this one.

    Given I haven't been sectioned recently you can work out for yourselves which way I'm voting.

    My picks:

    OHMSS and FRWL

    Moonraker is a great movie and hard to compare to FRWL.
    QoS...well...let's leave it at that.
