What I want from everyone is that they vote for the film the like best out of the groups I made (randomly). I don´t know if this has been done here before, but if it has I hope you don´t mind.

First round all 22 EON Bonds are gonna become 11.

These are the groups:

AVTAK-GE

FRWL-LALD

DN-GF

OHMSS - TWINE

TMWTGG-CR

DAF-LTK

YOLT-OP

TSWLM-TLD

TND-DAD

MR-FYEO

TB- QOS

If you can´t choose between two movies, you don´t have to vote in that particular group.

My votes:

AVTAK-GE

FRWL-LALD

DN-GF

OHMSS-TWINE

TMWTGG-CR

DAF-LTK

YOLT-OP

TSWLM-TLD

TND-DAD

MR-FYEO

TB- QOS

If you can´t choose which movie you prefer in a group , you don´t have to vote in that particular group. Just leave it blank.

My votes (prefered movies are written with thick letters):

AVTAK-GE

FRWL-LALD

DN-GF

OHMSS-TWINE

TMWTGG-CR

DAF-LTK

YOLT-OP

TSWLM-TLD

TND-DAD

MR-FYEO

TB- QOS

Sorry for the double post.

You have two days to answer.

Oh, goody, a ranking! And with the added pressure of having only two days to answer. But I do find your choice of groups weird. I´d prefer to have everybody join in with their favorite Bond film and then having a representative choice.

But I´m bored right now and waiting for a call. So, let me join in:

AVTAK-GE (because despite GE´s strengths, Sir Roger´s movie has been severely underrated)

FRWL-LALD (because FRWL is just more iconic)

DN-GF (because GF is just more... um, iconic, again. And bit more fun to me. Although... I should watch DN again...)

OHMSS - TWINE (oh, boy, this will get lots of people to hate me, but still, I´m an unashamed (fairly unashamed) TWINE luvie)

TMWTGG-CR (although I have re-discovered TMWTGG as a neglected gem, the first Craig Bond is just too good)

DAF-LTK (I do love LTK after all, but DAF is more fun to me - and I feel more like watching it now, so...)

YOLT-OP (OP is great but YOLT is such a weird, spaced-out, fever dream of a Bond movie - and it´s got the wonderful aerial shot of Bond fighting on the Kobe docks)

TSWLM-TLD (TLD is always in my top 5, but TSWLM was my first Bond and will always have a special place in my heart)

TND-DAD (not too fond of both but since I´m more in the mood to re-watch DAD right now...)

MR-FYEO (again, I love MR - but I´m currently re-reading the short stories and find it astonishing how much of FYEO and RISICO was actually used in the film - so I want to watch FYEO again)

TB- QOS (yeah, yeah, I always but TB down on my regular list and adore QOS - but TB has more iconic value... oh, again this dreaded word. Let´s say, it´s more epic. And it does have gorgeous photography)

After this there will be 11 movies left. One of these has to go, so you will vote for that one later.
Then there will be another 5 vs groups out of the 10 remaining film. After that there will be 5 movies left, and one of those has to go.
Then we come to the semi finals. 2 vs groups will eliminate another 2 movies, leaving the two remaining battling eath other for no.1.
Let the best movie win!

Yeah favorite is right, I just wanted to say "let the best film win "instead of "let the best man win".
CR, for instance, is a better movie than MR, but I would have voted for MR.

AVTAK-GE (both mediocre, middle-of-the-road films, but I'll take AVTAK)

FRWL-LALD (both are great Bond films, but FRWL is a bit better)

DN-GF (not even a contest)

OHMSS - TWINE (as mediocre as OHMSS can be at times, I just can't vote for TWINE over it)

TMWTGG- CR (not even a contest; one of the best in CR versus the film that rivals DAD for worst)

DAF-LTK (not a contest; LTK is the best of the films, DAF is a near disaster of a film)

YOLT-OP (not a contest; YOLT is one of the worst whereas OP is in my top 10)

TSWLM- TLD (TLD is a classic Bond film whereas TSWLM is slightly overrated)

TND-DAD (two decidedly subpar films; TND wins because DAD is the worst in the series)

MR- FYEO (FYEO is a classic Bond film, MR is one of my least-viewed films)

TB- QOS (TB is good, but not nearly as good as QOS)

Can't beat a good vote thread!!


AVTAK-GE (Christopher Walken, every time.)


FRWL-LALD (Close, but this is the stand-out Connery Bond.)


DN-GF (The original and best agains the over-rated 'GF'.)


OHMSS - TWINE (Probably get shot for this, but just not a fan of 'OHMSS'.)


TMWTGG-CR (Do I need a reason for this?)


DAF-LTK (As with 'AVTAK', an under-rated Bond if ever there was one.)


YOLT-OP (Great fun, great action and a great Roger Moore romp.)


TSWLM-TLD (Tough one, but I feel 'TSWLM' over shadows other equally good films with the iconic imagery rather than the Bond traits)


TND-DAD (My favourite Brosnan film, anything could beat 'DAD' in my opinon.)


MR-FYEO (Another example of when Bond wasn't taken too seriously!)


TB- QOS (Under-rated next to the giant of 'CR', but love the action and soundtrack, and find it more exciting than 'TB')

AVTAK-GE (I'd choose anything over AVTAK)

FRWL-LALD (fun always wins over quality with me)

DN-GF (tough one, but I'll go with sincere first effort over spectacle this time)

OHMSS - TWINE (unfair match - OHMSS kills without even trying)

TMWTGG-CR (no fair - a personal favorite (GG) vs one of the best!)

DAF-LTK (again, fun vs quality - plus DAF was my first)

YOLT-OP (tough one - I almost had to flip a coin)

TSWLM-TLD (fun>quality, and spectacle>sincere first effort this time)

TND-DAD (love 'em both, but DAD has the edge with me)

MR-FYEO (a case of too much vs too little)

TB- QOS (fun & spectacle)

Not fair to pair some of those up (DN-GF; YOLT-OP; TSWLM-TLD) but I did my best.

I'd like to know what the criteria was for the matchings: opposite styles? Humour and spectacle vs down-to Earth grittiness? (Of course, if I were to pair them up myself, it would be to deliberately eliminate half of them, so that would be biased.)

The thread starter is no longer with us, and it's probably true that the original pairings were too unusual (and the number of votes cast was too small) for this to be a valid sample. Still, some of us did weigh in, and I don't see any harm in carrying this on. You don't have to have voted in round one to vote this time. Because the MR - FYEO pairing produced a tie, they're getting a rematch. In my own defense, let me say that I'd have picked different starting pairings had the original poll been mine, but for what it's worth, here's round two.

AVTAK - FRWL

GF - OHMSS

CR - LTK

OP - TLD

TND - TB

MR - FYEO

AVTAK - FRWL (an unfair matchup if ever there was one)

GF - OHMSS (not an easy choice for some, but this is mine)

CR - LTK (no contest for me)

OP - TLD (don't make me choose - don't make me!)

TND - TB (classic wins over spectacle)

MR - FYEO (still can't decide)

AVTAK - FRWL (no contest, although I do quite enjoy AVTAK)

GF - OHMSS (OHMSS is a middle-of-the-road Bond film, but this is no contest)

CR - LTK (this one is very difficult, but LTK comes out slightly ahead)

OP - TLD (I like OP quite a bit, but TLD is a classic)

TND - TB (no contest whatsoever)

MR - FYEO (like the last one, this one's no contest at all)

Sorry for being abscent, but I was suspended since my twin brother has the same IP-adress as I have.
You asked about the choice of groups, well they were randomly selected. I took 22 small pieces of paper, wrote a film name on it and then, without looking, took 2 of the pieces. They later matched up.

My votes:

AVTAK - FRWL

GF - OHMSS

CR - LTK

OP - TLD

TND - TB

MR - FYEO

No problem, you can do this if you want to. I can take it back of you would rather want that. If I am going to do that I need to know that happened to the other 10 movies. I haven´t been following this thread so I have no idea.
