    For Your Eyes Only is my favorite Roger Moore Bond movie. Live And Let Die and Octopussy also stand on correct place with 3th and 4th. 2th: AVTAK. 5th: TMWTGG. 6th: TSWLM. 7th: Moonraker.

    I’m totally satisfied with that result. Just switch the place of FYEO and TSWLM and it would be my personal ranking of the Moore films.

    I've a new found love for FYEO. It used to be my least favourite Moore entry, now it's my favourite. So I'm very happy with this result.

    My second favourite, OP, I would have hoped to end up higher though.

    On the other hand I'm glad not to see TMWTGG in last place, considering its popularity I suppose that's as much as you can hope for.

    I've always thought Roger gives his best performance as Bond in FYEO, and the
    films in the Bottom part of the list have ( just my opinion ) two of the Best villains
    of the Moore tenure. ( TMWTGG & AVTAK )

    Congratulates to FYEO!

    While I’m not shocked that it came down to TSWLM and FYEO, I am a little surprised that FYEO took home the prize so convincingly – especially since TSWLM tends to be considered Moore’s best film. Also, given that FRWL won in the Connery elimination round, it is interesting that the film sometime called “Roger Moore’s FRWL” emerged victorious here. A trend?

    In any case, one actress is unhappy….

    I'm not surprised FYEO beat TSWLM - the latter has dropped a bit in people's lists recently. But 19 points is a stretch.

    Quite surprised by the extent of that victory. Personally I always found it to be the most unmemorable film in the series, even if it does have a more serious tone (for the Moore era at least).

    @George_Kaplan I think it's because in its time(1981) it was the first Bond film since OHMSS that tried to be faithful to its Fleming literary source material. I think if EON had made 5 faithful to Fleming film adaptations in the 1970s I don't think FYEO would rank as highly as it does.

    With its absence of a John Barry score, a basically platonic relationship between its hero and leading lady, an underwhelming climax and its more ordinary criminal villain(as opposed to the usual megalomaniac mastermind that they kill of in the pre-title sequence) FYEO plays more for me like the best episode of The Saint rather than one of the best Bond films. Those elements got restored in OP which I find it a lot more fun.

    My challenge with ranking the Moore films is the acceptance that all are flawed, and our personal tolerances to those flaws guide our ranking. Most rank TSWLM or FYEO as his best, however one can convincingly make the case that they both have dated, non-Barry scores. In addition, perhaps the villains are a bit weak. LALD and TMWTGG are sadly products of the early 70s with borderline poor handling of the blaxploitation and Kung fu influences. Moonraker perhaps went too far for most, and Octopussy’s dialogue is perhaps too silly for most.

    That being said, I strongly contend that if FYEO had a Barry score it would be unquestionably the best. Further, I do believe that Octopussy had the most potential to be the best.... (you could literally trim/edit your way to a top tier Bond film).

    Regardless I had a great time in this elimination game!

    Personal scoreboard:
    1. TSWLM
    2. FYEO
    3. OP
    4. MR
    5. LALD
    6. TMWTGG
    7. AVTAK
