    The thing about these ranking exercises is that they don't capture the closeness of certain matchups. As an example, there are many who have indicated that the FRWL/TSWLM contest is a close one for them, but ultimately they went with FRWL. I'm one of those.

    To the victor go the spoils.

    Very true, but it will be reflected when they are all counted in the end.

    Waiter, can I please get a TLD? And the lady will have a QOS, thank you.

    TSWLM vs. TLD - No contest for me. Roger's third is a class act in every way, and one of the most iconic films in the storied franchise. It did what it set out to do better than any of the other larger than life entries. Conversely, if I want a top notch dark cold war thriller in the Bond universe, I'll take FRWL thank you very much.

    LALD vs. QoS - Again, no contest for me. Rog's debut in this case is just too charismatic and memorable, with perhaps the best or second best villain roster in the entire series. Oh, and Jane Seymour too.

    A good match up this one.

    Of course my favorite (along with GF) gets the win TLD

    I got to give the win to LALD, as I find QoS a crippled film

    TSWLM over TLD. Pretty comfortable win.

    LALD over QOS, but it’s very close.

    TSWLM beats TLD solidly and decisively.
    Next up is two Top Tens, and only three spots apart, yet it is an uncontested win for LALD.

    TLD and TSWLM are both 8/10 for me, but TLD is less dated and less cheesy and has a John Barry score.

    LALD and QOS are both 7/10 for me, but LALD is far more fun and doesn't have that annoying editing and art film pretence about it. And its George Martin score is definitely the best non-Barry score of them all.

    I love all four of these films!

    TSWLM beats out TLD fairly easily, although both are top ten entries.

    QoS just edges out LALD in another battle of the top tens. Very tough decision. Quite strenuous this time.

    TSWLM and QOS are both top ten films. The others land in the next tier.

    I'm rather fond of TLD, but I adore Spy.

    QoS. Pretty easy this one.
