    OHMSS > LALD (very close call here for me- LALD is a childhood favourite, OHMSS has the better story)
    TSWLM > LTK (a bit easier to judge- I wouldn't quite consider LTK to be a 'classic' like Spy, but still, it's an awesome film)

    OHMSS, only by three or four spots, but it's a solid win.
    TSWLM easily defeats LTK.

    TSWLM over LTK

    I love all 4; they’re all in my Top 12. But OHMSS and TSWLM are in my Top 5 and simply must have the victories here.

    This is a tough one, because I love them all. On a different day, depending on my mood, it could go another way. However, after careful deliberation, this is my choice:

    OHMSS vs LALD - overall the former film is the better one, although the latter is an idiosyncratic & colourful blast from start to finish.

    TSWLM vs LTK - one is a legendary classic by most accounts and a personal favourite of mine. The epitome of larger than life Bond films. The other isn't, although it has one of the better plots and personal interplays between Bond and the villain. Was it a film ahead? Certainly, based on the evidence of the past decade or so.

    OHMSS-- easily.

    LTK-- controversially.

    I understand TSWLMM hits the big plot points of fantastical Bond, and this was a film that very much brought the franchise back from near-death. And I appreciate it as such.

    However, although Rog was the Bond in the tux while I was growing up, I was fed a healthy diet of Connery-- especially his first four. My Dad made sure that these films would imprint themselves on my DNA. So I like grounded and realistic Bond best.

    LTK beats TSWLMM.

    OHMSS reigns supreme, but I'm very fond of LALD.

    TSWLM easily dispatches LTK, I'm afraid.
