As I'm sure most of you are aware, we recently finished "Spectre vs. the field," where the most recent Bond was matched up against the previous 23, category by category. It encountered mixed results, but a good time was had by all (except perhaps for a few slapfights in the Moore years). Someone, I'm not sure who, suggested that we turn things around and match Dr. No up against the field. It seemed as good an idea as any, so we shall begin with Dr. No against the second Bond ever, From Russia With Love.
The PTS category has been removed from this game, on account of Dr. No not having a pre-title sequence.
Title Track: DN (I always thought of "Three Blind Mice" as theme song, but in deference to the consensus I'll use the Bond theme)
Title Credits: FRWL
Main Villain: DN (assuming it's Rosa Klebb)
Main Bond Girl: DN
Henchman: FRWL (assuming it's Red Grant)
Overall Plot: FRWL (DN's will pick up many wins, but FRWL might have the strongest of them all)
Dialogue: DN (mostly for the first ever "Bond...James Bond."
Benign Bizarre: DN (for Dr. No's lair, but it's close)
Suspense: FRWL (the train scene!)
Minor Characters: FRWL
Bond Performance: FRWL
12-5 to FRWL! That's a very big gap for the two movies at #2 and #7 in my Bond rankings, but FRWL picked up a bunch of categories very narrowly, so I suppose it makes sense. Shall we see your scores?
