    He wasn't a spy. He was, however, the funniest thing to ever come out of France.

    I know, I know. Peter Sellars was British. Still....

        Nope! Maybe its a generational thing. I would be a looser amongst my people if I had never seen Star Wars.

          Guns Of Navarone is in the lead.

          Doesn't surprise me though. I thought this was the weakest of the 4 groups. Didn't even vote for the full 8.

            Now that I've done some further research I see that Boys From Brazil would not be classified as a spy movie. It's more a thriller type movie. My mistake.

              I'm happy to see that The Guns Of Navarone is in the lead. What a great movie and cast. Even the music was terrific. Anyone still remember the music? When we saw it as youngsters way back when it was in the theaters, we came away with the music in our heads and thoughts of heroism for ourselves. That's what a movie was supposed to make you feel like.
              I also voted for Burn After Reading just because it was so hilarious.

                Best 007 plot

                While the Bond films are probably considered more eye candy than spy films, "The Spy Who Loved Me" satisfies both criteria, because it has the best Bond plot (I didn't say it was the best Bond film, jus the best plot). The plot of a woman who intends to exact revenge with all her heart, only to have her heart changed. Definitely the coolest Bond plot.

                    Clear and Present Danger - Very good movie. Harrison Ford was great in it.

                            Clear and Present Danger will beat out The Guns of Navarone in the finals. Both are very good movies but Harrison Ford gets the edge.

                                I don't think so.
