I've watched From Russia with Love... I take it it's not too early to start talking about it?
The last time I did a Bondathon, this come top of my rankings, so it'll be interesting to see if it differs this time around. This is a big step up from Dr. No, and is an enthralling watch. Right from that first scene (and what an incredible scene that is), you just know it's going to be something special. Unsure whether to score this as a 9 or a 10. In the Bond canon, it's probably a 10, whereas in the context of all films it's a 9... what say you @Veknoid_Outcast? Some other thoughts:
- Some nice scenery and location shots - the interiors for the chess and the mosque scene in particular.
From Russia With Love has been my favorite for a while so I will surely award it a high score :)
As for the methodology, I leave it up to all of you. I will judge Bond movies against all other films. So while I would probably give a 10 to something like From Russia With Love in the context of only Bond flicks, I will probably grant it a 8 or 9 in the context of all movies.
As long as everyone uses the 1-10 scale, I am fine with you inventing your own methodology.
