This tournament is organized to come up with an unofficial James Bond movie ranking based on the individual Top 10’s of various forum members.

Rules:
- Please post your personal Top 10
- We’ll assign points to each rank using the ‘eurovision songcontest’ approach with a point structure whereby 12 points is given to the first place, 10 points for second and 8 to 1 points for respectively third place up to the 10th. 
- Forum members have until Thursday January 15th midnight GMT time to post their personal Top 10.
- Only real official ‘James Bond’ movies are counted, so no spoofs or re-makes. (Never Say never is a remake right?, so better not to count that one)

Let’s hope this will be a fun thread, so let’s keep it polite and respect eachothers preferences, no matter what they are.

The contest starts now!

I don’t remember them all well enough to do a good ranking, so I’m just going to go with my favorites:

12 - Goldfinger
10 - From Russia With Love

Just checking, but is it possible not to supply the full points list in this type of tournament? I’d assume so, unless this leads to an unfair advantage to the two films listed compared to the others….

Do you mean that, if you only vote for two films, that they should get 2 and 1 points instead of 12 and 10?
Maybe that’s fairer, otherwise those two films get a huge boost.

Not that it’ll matter much, as Goldfinger and From Russia With Love are likely to end up as numbers one and two anyway. Cool

Technically I think you have to provide the full 10 movie list, at least that is how the eurovision songcontest work. But… Meh!

Yeah, the top picks look pretty good, they’re not only the ‘Connery classics’  and is what I expected somehow.

I do think that it should be either the full 10 movies, or we assign only the lower level points if fewer movies are provided.

So Detective Mosley, do you think you can add 8 more movies? It would be fair for the other movies to get their chance to 8-1 points aswel in order to keep up.

That is exactly also how people would think during the eurovision song contest, if your country didn’t get 12 or 10 points, you’d at least still hope for the 8 or 7 points in order to keep up. Again, for the final winner it won’t matter probably (or it could, if Skyfall ends up on top) but it will make the difference at the very least for the other placements.
