    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.

    Ahem...
    QOS obviously.... because it’s awesome
    ( I do love ohmss though)

    TB was my first Bond film so it will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s constantly Top 15 and a potential Top 10 contender on my list.

    An excellent one to start the series with!
  • Qos over ohmss is an outrage but anyone choosing mr over frwl might as well be choosing dad over frwl, an absolute atrocity

    Then by all means don't make those choices.

    DAD is #3 in my most recent rankings. I enjoy the ridiculous, fun ride.

    The only thing I find shocking is that with all the ranking, elimination, preference games we have on here people are still shocked themselves when someone has an opinion different than theirs.

    There will never be anything that has a full consensus, nor would we want that. Conversation would sure get stale quickly!

    I can totally understand how @BMW_with_missiles would choose DAD over FRWL. And I also completely get how the vast majority would feel the other way. But having conversations and dialogue with the other viewpoint is part of the fun.
  • I don't understand choosing an absurdity like dad over a masterpiece like frwl, and don't want to. sorry but in my mind there is a limit to legitimate opinions.

    I definitely can't understand picking DAD or MR over FRWL. I guess personal preference can be quite different sometimes. All these rounds have been pretty easy for me to pick; I hope it becomes more difficult soon.

    I'd seriously like to see your whole ranking.

    FRWL is a good movie that's slow paced. I don't generally find a slow pace entertaining.

    DAD is a deeply flawed movie that is entertaining in a fast-paced, popcorn sort of way. An absurdity can be entertaining.

    Citizen Kane is a better movie than all of the Bond films, but I have no desire to sit through it. Hell, I'd be more entertained by The Room.

    Thus ends my explanation of my apparently illegitimate opinion.

    From Russia with Love is the best Bond film and MR has probably my favourite score.

    I'd actually miss those two more than OHMSS and QOS

    Its not so absurd that he doesn’t like frwl, or even that he likes DAD, but that he likes DAD so much that it’s #3.

    But is that how your like bond films, silly, fun, and stupid?

    Again I respect your opinion, don’t get me wrong, people find it absurd that I Love QOS, but I would like to know what you like so much about DAD

    I wish I did. I really do. I envy the people who find it to be one of their favorites; the silliness just doesn't entertain me like it does others.

    Pretty much, yeah. I do cringe at many parts of DAD; Jinx, Mr Kill, the robo-suit, etc. The film could certainly be better, and is very juvenile, but I generally enjoy over-the-top Bond films more than the serious ones. What I'm looking for in Bond is that kind of unashamed, all-out fun that no other franchise can offer, so I'm disappointed when EON shies away from that to do a more serious movie. That said, CR is my #4.
  • I do not accept that I shouldn't be shocked at a member of this forum ranking mr or dad above frwl

    Anyway, FRWL and OHMSS are both top 3 for me. Obvious choices for me.

    We used to have a member that rated DAD #1. No one else on the forum agreed with him, they just accepted it.

    And where is he now? In a psychiatric ward?
  • bondjamesbondjames You were expecting someone else?

    @BMW_with_missiles , @JamesBondKenya - you both agree on TB if I'm not mistaken. One rates it below NSNA if I remember correctly and the other rates it near the bottom. Both shocks to me but c'est la vie. See, we can find common ground after all.

    In all seriousness, I can readily understand how someone can rate MR above FRWL (even though FRWL is my #1 Bond film). DAD however? It may take me some time to come to terms with that one.

    FRWL and OHMSS belong in my perhaps eternal top 3. So that is my picks.

    Let's move on to the next. Couldn't we insert an automatic end when the score is 10:0? We could also make it like a football league so that each round each film has to play against another film. Then it would only be 24 weeks :-)

    He cures people who dislike DAD

    I am sticking to the plan.
