    TSWLM by a few slots.

    The next pair are just about dead even and the choice could change day to day (I’m not even sure which I’ll choose as I’m typing this). Right now I’ll go with YOLT.

    YOLT has a lot going for it that makes it enjoyable (one of Barry's very best scores, Ken Adam's most spectacular set) ...but also a few deficits (not least that idiotic becoming-a-Japanese business). Still, my long-standing assessment has been that I rate it 7/10 (that's solid mid-field), while both TSWLM and GE are in my 8/10 category. I leave it at that, but I wonder how I would decide if I had to actually discard the loser(s) from the series. I might keep YOLT after all.

    TSWLM over YOLT
    GE over YOLT

    Both pretty easily. I enjoy YOLT, but it’s not top tier for me while both TSWLM and GE have been in my Top 10 forever.

    YOLT is my favourite Connery film, but I still prefer TSWLM and GE in both cases.

    Both are classic and iconic adventures, but TSWLM perfected the YOLT template.

    Over time, I've come to reappreciate the magnificent mess that is YOLT, whilst GE is rather... naff.

    Close matches, but YOLT takes two losses. I have to go with TSWLM & GE

    TSWLM and GE.

    But the contests are both close. I really enjoy YOLT, it's climbed a lot in my rankings recently.

    TSWLM (Spy was going to win as it is the first ever Bond film I saw and on the big screen, my personal favourite Rog film and in my top 5)

    YOLT (I like GE and although YOLT isn't a huge favourite, the technical merits, the main title theme and of course Barry's 2nd best score of the series aces it for me)

    TSWLM- watched it the other day and fell in love with it again. Such a fun, exciting film with one of my favourite Bond-Bond girl pairings in the series
    GE- I actually don't love YOLT that much. GE I believe has the best set of characters in the whole series, and the locations are really interesting. YOLT I find isn't really that interesting until the volcano.

    A tough pair of choices.

    YOLT. John Barry's score lifts it.
    GE.

    YOLT & YOLT

    Funnily, those three pictures stand #12, #13 and #14 in my latest poll.

    A tough one for me, given that YOLT is my favorite Bond film, but I don't consider it the best Bond film.

    YOLT

    @MooreFun , I believe that we are voting for favorites, so you may want to change your vote.
  • Posts: 357
    I still voted for my favorites, no worry. I prefer MR to Spy anyway.

    GF over almost everything (minus FRWL, SF and maybe CR).

    And now this is a new development: While I've had GE in my 8/10 category and OP at 6/10 originally, I think MR has grown on me so much and GE has sort of worn off for me, I herewith vote for MR.
