    NSNA over TB Easy.

    CR over LALD Even easier.

    TB > NSNA

    NSNA is great Sunday night viewing, but TB is an adventure I would love to experience in person (except for getting shot in the foot)

    CR > LALD

    LALD: Great debut for Rog'. A Bond film with voodoo, an amazing score and memorable characters.
    CR: A modern classic, a new Bond golden age. That is, a golden age that lasts for one film.

    TB with ease. NSNA has grown on me some, but still is nowhere near TB status, which remains in my Top 10. NSNA would still be 25 out of 25 if added to the Eon 24.

    LALD over CR by the very slimmest of margins. This is making me want to do a re-ranking before the year is out.

    TB and CR, nothing to do about that I’m afraid.

    TB and CR

    Even though I love LALD, CR is one of my favourite films. I have a soft spot for NSNA but it can't compete with TB.

    TB and CR would make a great double feature.

    These are still easy picks.

    TB crushes NSNA. Far better in every aspect.

    CR wallops LALD. Apart from the eccentricity factor and theme song, LALD is outmatched (and in many areas outclassed) in everything. Fairly mediocre entry can't stand a chance against the series' finest showing.

    Another non event. I presume at some point we are going to get some heavyweight ties like FRWL v OHMSS but at the moment this game is just delivering routine thrashings.

    TB v NSNA = TB: Why go for the cheap Chinese imitation over the real thing? Not a big fan of TB at all but it trumps NSNA in every dept apart from Largo who is terribly underwhelming in the original but manically unhinged in a fabulous performance by Klaus Maria Brandauer. One of the most underrated villains and possibly a top half ranking if up against all the EON villains.

    LALD v CR= CR. Close to perfection v a slice of camp from early 70s 'we're running out of ideas here' Hamilton trilogy.

    A no brainer :

    TB & CR.

    Both favourites of mine.
    CR is currently #1 in my rankings.
    TB is currently #5 in my rankings.

    LALD is at #14 (recently moved up 3 places so is moving in the right direction.)

    my picks:
    TB
    CR


    TB is Connery and the 60s.
    CR doesn't have Connery but otherwise it's flawless and imagining Sean playing the part, it would even come closer to OHMSS which is my favorite Bond film.

    Thunderball over NSNA. A classic Bondian, if not bloated, epic, vs a hate filled excuse of a film. After all that hard work acquiring the screen rights, NSNA doesn't even follow the novel that closely. McClory really busted a gut trying to get the rights to Thunderball. A greatest hits collection, if I've ever saw one. Each scenario in TB, the novel, has been done better in the preceding Fleming tales.

    Casino Royale over Live and Let Die.

    Thunderball, obviously.
    Casino Royale: quintessential Bond.

    NSNA - There are many things that I appreciate about TB, just as I do with all of the original 60's films. However, I just have a lot more fun with NSNA. It's not half as bad as some make it out to be and even betters the original in some areas.

    CR - I really enjoy the heck out of LALD, but CR is on another level.

    Bond in the Bahamas double bill

    I figure the Bahamas section in CR was meant to be a tribute to TB(the location, Bond beating the villain at the gaming tables and winning his woman).

    TB was my first Bond film so it will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s constantly Top 15 and a potential Top 10 contender on my list.
