    You can just not vote for them. Why don't you submit some of your own suggestions?

    Apologies to you if you feel I'm mischaracterizing you here, but it seems like you come into these game threads (cinematography elimination also comes to mind) and complain about the offerings / how the game is going without really contributing to them in any other way?

    ToTheRight clearly likes the shots he's suggested, and I for one really like the second one in Afghanistan. Anything where Bond is embedding himself in another culture is a win for me.

    Yes! The one of Kara and Bond on the horse, I feel is an iconic moment in the film. Kara is cute as ever and Dalton just looks bad ass and cool there. I can't see that image and not hear Barry's amazing score. It's great.

    I actually chose the one of Felix because I had a hunch no one else would. Definitely a time capsule that screams 1987: his hair, clothes and overall look. Also, I rarely see John Terry get any appreciation.

    Also technology of the time (real or not) serves as an effective timestamp.

    It will be interesting to see the number of entries rising even more dramatically once we get into the Craig era. From the top of my head I can nominate at least 10 scenes in Casino Royale alone.

    A great response to a question that didn't really deserve an answer.

    Fantastic introduction to Dalton.

    #6 - not because it's a great moment, but because of the colour palette and symmetry of the ceiling/wall.

    #8 isn't a screenshot, you don't see that frame in the film.

    I'm going for number 6, that just is James Bond

    This would be easier to pick the ones I don't like, there are so many iconic frames here

    #4 was my desktop wallpaper for a very long time so I feel compelled to vote for it, but....

    #5 is such a clever shot in terms of its riffing on the gunbarrel that I have to give my vote to that.

    My personal favorite shot is 14, but the best shot in my opinion is 5. So will lock in 5 as my vote.

    Agreed. And I think it's the first one (unless we count FYEO).

    I vote for #5.

    No love for the shot of the jeep crashing over the edge of the cliff in the PTS? It's a pretty spectacular stunt with the way it obliterates that wall on the way through.

    This is the first film up to now were there's no bad choice. The Living Daylights is a beautiful looking film
