Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem. How to choose?
We here at NextMovie were scratching our heads on this one, so we figured we'd bring the conversation to you. Welcome to "Eff, Marry, Kill: 'Skyfall' Edition."
This game goes exactly how you think it does — we want you to determine which actor you'd like to spend the rest of your days with, whose days you'd like to end for good and which one you'd enjoy (or suffer through, as the case may be) spending one single night with.
Because such decisions are so difficult, we've asked a few of our buds to weigh in. Hit the poll below and hear thoughts from our experts underneath. And don't forget to give us your thoughts in the comments!

This is a little difficult for me, I must confess. The idea of getting it on with Voldemort kind of excites me, but, given the field here, I think I'm going to have kill Ralph Fiennes. Daniel Craig is really sexy, but who is he really? I think we're going to have just one evening together. I'm certain it'll be unforgettably magical. That means I'm marrying Javier Bardem. I'm looking forward to that. He may play some seriously creepy villains — "Skyfall" being no exception — but the man always looks like he smells so good. Plus, photos of him, Penelope Cruz and their baby always show them all looking so happy. I do, Javier. Yes, I do.

To start, please let the record reflect my unbridled outrage over the snubbing of Ben Whishaw (otherwise known as gadget guru Q). Oh, what wedded bliss we'd share! What well-coiffed children we'd have! Sigh. Moving on… I have a hard time imagining any red-blooded woman assigning Daniel Craig to a role other than horizontal tango partner. Do you remember those blue booty shorts? Of course you do! I'd lie back and think of England with him any time. And though Javier Bardem is an equally gifted actor, he does nothing for my heart or my loins. Nothing. Sorry, Javier, it looks like I'm going to have to do away with you. Which leaves Ralph Fiennes as my default husband — something I could be okay with. I've only seen one of the "Harry Potter" films (I know! I know!), but that means he holds no villainous preoccupations in my mind. Also, one could do much worse than a proper English gentlemen who'll brew you unlimited pots of Earl Grey and always remember to TiVo "Downton Abbey."

Is it weird how easy I find this? First off, with no hesitation whatsoever, we’ll kill Ralph Fiennes. I’m sorry. I’m sure he’s the absolute nicest man. But he murdered Harry Potter’s mother – and Severus Snape, for God’s sake. I don’t really see a way past that. Daniel Craig is a very attractive man, but frankly, he looks like the kind of guy who will tell me that yes, my ass does look big in these jeans. The qualities that make a great Bond don’t make a great husband, unless you like fast cars and martinis more than you like a man who’ll help in the kitchen and take out the damn trash without being asked. But Javier Bardem and I have many years of happiness ahead of us. That smile! That accent! That willingness to take out the trash (I assume)!
