It’s been a long time… and finally, here we are.
Just as a quick review, where this has gone so far…
Out in Round 1 - in which A View to a Kill and Dr No gathered not one vote between them…
You Only Live Twice
Live and Let Die
The Man with the Golden Gun
A View to a Kill
The World is not Enough
Die Another Day
For the first shall be last and the most recent shall… also be last.
Out so far - 33% of Connery; 42.8% of Moore; 50% of Brosnan; 25% of Craig.
Not scientific, but of momentary passing interest perhaps.
Out in Round 2
Diamonds are Forever
For Your Eyes Only
The Living Daylights
Licence to Kill
Tomorrow Never Dies
Quantum of Solace
The remaining 1960s films sail through Round 2. By Round 2, everything from the 1980s has gone, likewise everything from the 1990s.
Out so far - 50% of Connery, 71.4% of Moore, 100% of Dalton, 100% of Brosnan, 50% of Craig
Out in Round 3 - the Semi-Finals
From Russia with Love
The Spy who Loved Me
Some big beasts falling, there.
Interesting Final - a mix of the (relatively) dutiful to Fleming (and risky) debuts on the one hand, and on the other a brace of outlandish and confident not-that-cursed-after-all fourth films.
What a mixed-up kid the series is. All tastes may be accounted for here - but which will ultimately taste victory?
