Octopussy

Corrected entry: Near the start where Bond is trying to evade the missile in his mini jet plane, the sound becomes the distinctive discordant scream of a diving propeller driven plane (think World War II dive bomber), rather than the whistle of a jet engine it should have.

Correction: The "distinctive discordant scream" is the airflow over the wings, not the sound of the engine. Some low-speed jets make this sound, and the Arco Starjet Bond is flying is one of them.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, Bond chases Kahn following the battle at Octopussy's mansion. In the short time it takes to run to a nearby plane, it turns from pitch darkness to bright sunshine.

Trivia: The American Air Base in Germany where Bond disables the atomic bomb was actually an American base in England. Look closely and you'll see the painted stop signals on the left side of the road in some scenes.

Chosen answer: The satisfaction of knowing he'll win, the thrill of pulling one over on someone; maybe like Goldfinger, he just doesn't like to lose under any circumstances.
