Are they? In most of them Bond makes out with a woman in the last scene, but there is no indication of that activity in this particular shot and beyond that I haven't noticed noteworthy similarities between the endings.
There are a few where he ends up floating in a raft/boat/whatever on the ocean somewhere with the female lead. Dr. No, Thunderball, and You Only Live Twice are all strikingly similar in that regard.


There's also a set where they are on a ship, train, etc. and are attacked by the henchman at the end. Such as Diamonds are Forever, The Man with the Golden Gun, Live and Let Die.


Then there's a set where his superiors are trying to contact him and see/hear him getting it on with the female lead: The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only.


Maybe it's not deliberate but lazy.

Here's a (way too generous) hint:
It's a point-of-view shot of a mortally wounded man.

77 is familiar to me as well. I keep thinking Brian De Palma but cannot figure it out.

I Googled a bit of info I see in one screenshot and got the answer. Do you consider that cheating or acceptable detective work?

It isn't the most honorable way of getting it but I'm overall fine with it, with the exception of when distinctive words or numbers are shown in the screenshot and googling those, it requires zero perceptive powers or creativity to do that.

:lol: Yes, well, when I said "I" I was speaking for others around here, dubious types who lack enough honor and imagination even to ask you. Now that they have their answer and remain duly chagrined, I shall tread nobly onward, looking for more self-sacrifices to make.

Orgasmically good guess.
In case you haven't noticed them already, I often give out hints for still unsolved shots in the quizzes, so I recommend looking through the threads for those.

Indeed, I have noticed the hints but in this particular SSQ the hints for the un-guessed shots aren't doing much for me I'm afraid. On to your next old quiz, I'm making up for lost time here!
