    FRWL vs TLD - I like FRWL, i'm not just saying that, I do, but at the end of the day TLD is #1.

    TWINE vs SF - TWINE might have its problems, but it still feels like a Bond film.

    FRWL - I like TLD quite a bit, but FRWL is in another league.

    SF - A clear winner.

    My heart sinks at having to make this choice. My two sentimental favourites - FRWL and TLD. My two most rewatched Bond films. And probably my two favourite Bond performances...but FRWL is my number one and while TLD is my first Bond in the cinema and my number four (and maybe climbing even further in rankings after last viewing!) I'm going for FRWL

    oh...and SF - easily.

    Two of the best films and two of the worst...

    FRWL wins the battle of the best

    TWINE wins the battle of the worst

    There are some obvious similarities in both matches this round, for me they are both easy picks: FRWL and SF.

    Hmm, my favorite (TLD) vs one of the very best (FRWL)...

    It has to be TLD, in the end the one I enjoy the most in a re-watch type of manner should win I reckon.

    SF is the better film

    FRWL. A tougher call than I thought, but Connery’s second outing is a classic for a reason.

    SF. Again, a tougher call than I thought since (minus Richard’s Christmas Jones), TWINE is actually a very watchable entry.

    TLD > DAD - "Game's up, mate. You're dead."

    LALD > SP - "Whose uh, funeral is it?"

    TLD, because that's the only choice that makes sense.

    SP, because I will continue to fight this ridiculous anti-SP bias.

    TLD - DAD is an enjoyable popcorn flick, but TLD is an elegant classic!
    SP - As much as I love Moore and his performance in LALD, the blaxploitation stuff in Bond isn't something I look forward to see. SP is by far a more Bondian film.

    Close round in both cases for me, though i'll go with:
    TLD
    SP

    TLD over DAD and LALD over SP.

    About the previous duel... very surprised to see FRWL crush TLD so easily. Would have thought it'd be near even.

    But by that margin? I must like it far too much I guess.

    Has DAD even won a duel yet?
