And might I suggest that instead of songs you go with the novels. Just the Flemings probably, but you could include the Gardners and Bensons as well if you wanted.

Re: The James Bond Films Hurt/Heal Game

^I'm not even sure I'd be qualified to vote, it's been so long since I read some of those. I'm game if there's enough interest, but for now I think I'll do the songs. (And I decided to just do one main song from each movie. I started to compile a broader list, and quickly discovered that there were just too many source songs in the films, variations of the title song in the closing credits, etc., to bother with.)

Anyroad, as a formality, here are the final results for this one...

Gold: From Russia With Love
Silver: Goldfinger (Now that just doesn't seem right, does it? )
Bronze: On Her Majesty's Secret Service

4th: Casino Royale (2006)
5th: The Living Daylights
6th: GoldenEye
007th: Dr. No
8th: You Only Live Twice
9th: The Spy Who Loved Me
10th: Tomorrow Never Dies
11th: Licence to Kill
12th: Thunderball
13th: For Your Eyes Only
14th: Live and Let Die
15th: The Man With the Golden Gun
16th: The World is Not Enough
17th: Octopussy
18th: Die Another Day
19th: Diamonds Are Forever
20th: A View to a Kill
21st: Moonraker

So...a pretty fun and interesting contest overall, with some surprising results. I think Moore got beat up a little too harshly, but every Bond actor got a film in the top 10, so that's cool.

Thanks for playing, everyone! I'll be posting the next game shortly.

Awesome! I thought for sure Goldfinger was going to run away with the top spot.

Yeah, it was ahead by so much. But I'm very happy with how this list turned out for the most part. I love how Dr. No is ranked 007th

Indeed, I'd like to see the 007th tradition continued in the new thread (whatever ends up there).

Re: The James Bond Films Hurt/Heal Game

Not so bad. The last two standing were my two favorites, although I rate Goldfinger higher than From Russia. Casino Royale went a little earlier for my taste, but stood with the last batch, so fair play there.

Interesting game.

Ditto. I appreciate you all keeping it going. I did it just as a joke, but it was cool to see it turn into something more.

And while I didn't enjoy eliminating it, there's something rather appropriate about the first Bond film being ranked 007th.
