    As promised I've rounded up our ratings. Currently we've done, Dr No- 78.7% and Skyfall - 75.4%. So, where does Moonraker end up?

    Answer, *drum rolls*...

    MR - 67.4%


    And to conclude our MR discussion, time for some actual discussion!


    Is it higher/lower than your own ratings?

    Lower, though I'm not surprised. MR is a, erm, divisive film...

    What is your favourite category/element/thing in the film? 

    The haunting score by the inimitable John Barry, of course

    What surprised you the most, while reading other peoples ratings?

    Talking of music, someone gave the score a measly three!

    I'll be doing the next Bond film up for our ratings at the weekend, so look out!

    10. Music - 10 (the definition of Bondian sound)
    11. Cinematography - 7
    12. Fleming - 8 (quite faithful, but does not have the callous nature to it)

    Ok, shall we get this show on the road? Yes? Splendid.

    Now then, this is our combined scores for the three films that preceded Goldfinger

    Overall Bondian Scores

    Dr No- 78.7%
    Skyfall - 75.4%
    Moonraker - 67.4%

    So, where does Goldfinger stack up in this most exalted company? Well -

    GF - 78.72%

    which makes it joint leader in our provisional rankings.



    And to conclude our Goldfinger discussion, time for some actual discussion!


    Is it higher/lower than your own ratings?

    Lower. GF always does well in these type of tests. I gave GF a 86%. And the forum gave GF a 78.72%

    What is your favourite category/element/thing in the film?

    Hmm, tricky this. The score and sets are top notch, but I have to give it to Sean Connery. Magnetism thy name is Connery.

    What surprised you the most, while reading other peoples ratings?

    I thought everyone loved Goldfinger and Pussy, but not so, it seems! :-). Again, I thought everyone loved John Barry score, but...
