As I noted on Threads, I’ve been rewatching the Bond films.
The stakes are higher in some than others.
The Spy Who Loved Me: Bond stops Stromberg from destroying the world
Moonraker: Bond stops Drax from destroying the world
View to a Kill: Bond stops Zorin from destroying Silicon Valley
Die Another: Bond stops Graves from starting a war in Korea
Casino Royale: Bond stops Le Chiffre winning a card game
