COMPETING FILM SHOWDOWN - Poll Round #2

Looking at film and television. Sometimes two very similar films come out close together, let's see which one is better...

Here's a list of 10 film duos I intend looking at.  I'm starting off with films released in the same year calender year, but will expand out to films in consecutive years as time goes on.  I'm also going to avoid deliberate rip-offs by companies such as Asylum who make "Mockbusters" of major films to trick audiences into see their film instead of the real thing.

COMPETING FILM SHOWDOWN - Octopussy vs Never Say Never Again

Looking at film and television. Sometimes two very similar films come out close together, let's see which one is better...
Bond films.  Rival Bond Films.
