    Rather obvious isn’t it? Haha! I am trying to work on fully appreciating the older Bond’s. Same with all films really as most of my favorites are post-1990.

    I suspect I’m one of the few people on this site with Die Another Day in their top 10.

    That’s hilarious =)). I had the misfortune of drinking water and looking down at my phone as I was reading it.

    I do need to give the older films a proper rewatch soon though.

    TSWLM has shot up for you too? It’s jumped over 10 spots for me in the last month and I can’t quite place my finger on why.

    @Mathis1 LTK has been in my top 5 for ages and it will always be there as it’s one of my very favourites. It has skippered between #1 and #4 the last few years, but I don’t see it dropping anywhere lower than #5. Love it and always will, so you needn’t worry ;)

    As for DAD over LALD, I realise it’s a 100% subjective choice. I don’t think either is particularly great but DAD has the nostalgia factor, first Bond in cinemas for me, as well as the Vanquish and Raoul. As for LALD, I’m afraid I don’t get much fun out of it, though I do love the M scene in that one.

    @Zarozzor I’ve come to appreciate TSWLM much more lately, elegant as well as epic, it’s a prototype of archetypical 007 outrageousness. Perhaps the best of the outlandish Bonds.

    Thanks for the feedback fellas :)

    My 4k copy hasnt arrived yet, am hoping I can place it higher after I watch it ( only 4th viewiing) , but to be honest, am not expecting it to crack my top 10!

    Right now I would have NTTD somewhere between 15 - 20 in my ranking, it will probably take between 15 - 20 views for me to give it a more fixed ranking.

    I watched it twice consecutively last night. My Dad is coming over to watch it with me tonight. I found it really hit the spot and captured my heart watching it at home.
    I do need an upgrade, though. Add some speakers and a bigger screen.

    First time I attempt to make a full ranking, but this one has been in my mind for a couple of months, so I think it's quite stable now. I also like to consider the Bond films as different types of coffee: ristretto, espresso, sweet espresso and cappuccino.

    1. CR - ristretto
    2. QoS - ristretto
    3. TB - espresso
    4. OHMSS - espresso
    5. GF - sweet espresso
    6. FRWL - ristretto
    7. DN - ristretto
    8. SF - espresso
    9. YOLT - cappuccino
    10. SP - sweet espresso = NTTD - espresso
    12. TLD - espresso = TWINE - espresso
    14. LTK - ristretto
    15. GE - sweet espresso
    16. TMWTGG - sweet espresso
    17. FYEO - sweet espresso
    18. TND - cappuccino
    19. LALD - sweet espresso
    20. OP - sweet espresso
    21. TSWLM - cappuccino
    22. MR - cappuccino
    23. DAD - cappuccino
    24. AVTAK - sweet espresso
    25. DAF - cappuccino

    Does that mean you only watch YOLT, TND, TSWLM, MR, DAD and DAF in the morning? ;)

    It means I very rarely watch them, except YOLT, because I find this one so charming (Japan, Barry, the cinematography…). I would prefer a "ristretto" or "espresso" in the morning, a cup of QoS for example would be perfect to start the day ;)
