How does Amazon's video service describe each James Bond film?

All 25 official James Bond films are currently on Amazon Prime Video. The service chooses three adjectives to describe movies on the platform, so which words did they pick for each 007 adventure? Most of them make sense, like 'Adventure,' 'Exciting,' 'Thrilling,' etc, but there are also some odd choices.

Is 'Goldfinger' frightening? How can 'You Only Live Twice' be gritty and outlandish at the same time? 'For Your Eyes Only' is harrowing, and 'A View To A Kill' is understated but strange. 'Die Another Day' is considered thoughtful and understated. 'Live And Let Die', 'Octopussy' and 'SPECTRE' are deemed to be sensual. What do you think of these classifications for Bond films?
