  • It is indeed a very though choice and it's very hard to decide. I would go with 6. Not the most iconic, but it's definitively a great composition.

    #11. More Jamaica and less lair time would've been favourable.

    5 looks great (especially for such an odd moment)
    #34 and #35 are totally awesome but I also go with #11: we need more exotic locations with natural bright sunshine and less of the "darker" scenes. Even in Jamaica, a big bunch of the moments were shot at night. I love the movie, but please, we need more sunshine, fun and holiday vibes in the next one.

    I will go with 11, because that is how I would have wanted Bond to ultimately end his time as a spy, not as in 9.

    And the winner of the No Time To Die round is.....

    11. Retirement

    Thanks to everyone who submitted shots and voted!

    That's the end of the individual films, but I have one whopper round coming up to really give us a big finale.

    I'm a little disappointed my pick for NTTD lost on the tiebreak.

    But for the best of the best I'll throw my hat in for Casino Royale. A brilliant composed shot, rewrote the rulebook and nearly 20 years later what it represents has never been bettered.

    We could make this longer, by elimination rounds, then the one who will be left will win.

    Just a suggestion of course, but it's interesting for it to have a Battle of the fittest, because there's too many shots to choose from, so we need to make it through each of them, breaking it down.

    So, we can have this by decade, which one is the best shot of the 60's.

    Then 70's, then 80's, then 90's, then 2000s, and 2010s.

    Now, those 6 shots that will win in each decade will go on for a head to head battle to see which decade and Bond film had the best shot overall.

    Do you agree with that? @CraigMooreOHMSS ?

    In 60's:
    Dr. No
    FRWL
    GF
    TB
    YOLT
    OHMSS

    In 70's:
    DAF
    LALD
    TMWTGG
    TSWLM
    MR

    In 80's
    FYEO
    OP
    AVTAK
    TLD
    LTK

    In 90's:
    GE
    TND
    TWINE

    In 2000s:
    DAD
    CR
    QOS

    In 2010s:
    SF
    SP
    NTTD

    If you want to go that route, @SIS_HQ, then I'm absolutely fine with that. It was your thread originally after all! :)

    If you're watching Miss Universe, then the terms of elimination would be similar to this game.....

    From 25, only 6 shots will left from each decade and will fight for the finals, to know what is the best shot of them all.

    We're going to break down these beautiful shots by decade.....

    We're starting with, the 60's!

    Vote for your favorite shot that you think is the best and most defining shot of the 60's decade:

    Dr. No (1962)
    Professor Dent's entrance

    From Russia With Love (1963)
    Grant Stalking Bond

    Goldfinger (1964)
    Stalking Goldfinger
    Goldfinger-315.jpg

    Thunderball (1965)
    He got the point

    You Only Live Twice (1967)
    First sight of the lair

    On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)
    Mercy Flight

    Wow, the 60’s really looked great.

    It seems the image for FRWL doesn’t load though, at least not on my phone.

    Excuse my asking, @SIS_HQ, but how can this be if the 60s are the only decade where we even have six shots, while there are only five each for the 70s and 80s and three for the remaining decades (even if you count NTTD as still from the 2010s)?

    As for the 60s, I'm with @zebrafish and vote Goldfinger.

    One shot will win for each decade, as long as the shot in a decade is not one, it could still compete with the other shots from that decade.

    We're going to pick one shot for each decade, and from 25, it'll be down to six shots (those were the shots won from each decade), and those six shots will compete against each other again, for finals.

    It's like picking a representative from each decade then those Representatives will have a head to head battle again for the finals.
