With the films thread finished, let s do a quick epilogue with the actors. It isn t that long since we had an elimination game, but this is a slightly different concept, and less prone to be decided by chance.

With a total of fifteen matches, I am thinking three matches per round. That way it will be over in a month if I change every six days. Just state your preferred Bond for each of the three match-ups, and I will tally up the results next month same as in the other thread.

    First two are easy!
    1.Connery
    2. Dalton


    3. Its toss of a coin,I will go Craig, though Moore should be celebrated.
    Great to have a new game, Thunderfinger!

    By the way, if there are matches where you are undecided, it is fine to vote on just two, or even just one.

    This will be over so quick, but we can always do another one after NTTD comes out. To see if there is some reassessment of Craig one way or the other.

    As much as I like the idea, I struggle to decide who is better. I like them all. Every actor had its qualities. I'm looking forward to find out who will win more rounds: Moore or Craig.

    This is very odd. Craig is stomping all over Roger so far, but I believe Roger far out preformed Craig in our last two elimination games.

    We have only just begun, but this is a different concept and maybe the nostalgia after Moore s death is starting to wear off. NTTD s trailer could also play into it. I don t know.

    It will be exciting to see just how this plays out.

    @Birdleson

    I went back and checked. Last year, Craig came in fourth and Moore second, but in 2016 Craig came second and Moore third.

    I adore Sean but I'm going to go for the controversial pick: Pierce!

    Timmy for the second match-up!

    Rog for the third!

    Brosnan (there’s always two!), Dalton and MOORE .... that’s MOORE .... you’ve definitely counted my vote for MOORE right? ☺️

    Brosnan over Connery by a hair's breadth.

    Dalton over Lazenby, even if I really like the latter.

    Craig over Moore.

    Connery over Brosnan by a country mile. Not even close!

    Lazenby over Dalton. While I am a huge Daltonite and he was until only recently my second favourite Bond behind Lazenby, I can't put him against my favourite Bond of all, George. Both men portrayed the most Flemingesque Bond's in their respective films, bringing a genuinely relatable, human side to the character, present in the pages of Fleming.

    Moore over Craig. Moore is the reason I'm a Bond fan today and while his portrayal is almost the polar opposite of what I like in my Bond, I find his performance more watchable then Craig. The moments in which Moore played it straight have provided some of the best in the series. That being said Craig's performance in Casino Royale is top shelf material and remains his best Bond to date, IMO.

    I think I'm the only one who prefers Lazenby and Craig...
    Except @THunderfinger, if that was you voting up above?

    Yes. You and me. No others with that combination of preference yet.
