    The James Bond Rewatch

    in Movies Discussion 4 days ago

    On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is always the Bond film I’m most protective of. It was a favorite of mine growing up and I would get defensive when people would attack it, especially for superficial reasons. “Lazenby only did one” or “It’s long”, etc. Watching it again, it reminds me of how enjoyable it is especially coming after the lackluster You Only Live Twice. Lazenby clearly wasn’t an...

    “Welcome. Welcome to Japan, Mr. Bond.”You Only Live Twice is a hard film to pin down. On the one hand, it takes the Bond formula that has slowly been developing over the first batch of films and pushes it further and on the other it also seems to get high on its own supply and want to coast on the fumes of the good faith the series has developed thus far. It’s hard to weigh...

    The James Bond Rewatch

    We’re only covering the official EON James Bond’s films in this rewatch however if someone were so inclined the unofficial parody film Casino Royale (1967) was released between Thunderball and You Only Live Twice. Suffice it to say: it’s a hot mess. The film suffered multiple directors, Peter Sellers leaving the film before he was finished filming his scenes and a script with...

    Thunderball was one of my favorites growing up. I don’t know if it was the setting in Nassau or the big underwater battle but it was one I always looked forward to seeing. Rewatching it now you can see some of the cracks that started to become apparent in the style over substance philosophy that began in Goldfinger. Terence Young makes a welcome return after handing off the reins to Guy Hamilton...

    The James Bond Rewatch

    “Ah! Welcome to Auric Stud, Mr. Bond.” Goldfinger is not the best Bond film but it’s arguably the quintessential Bond film. If you were only going to recommend one film from this franchise, this would be it. What we now know as the “Bond formula” is finalized here. Guy Hamilton takes over direction from Terence Young and firmly plants his tongue in cheek. Bond is not as serious and Connery’s...

    “My friend, if you really want my advice, you should spend a few pleasant days with us here in Istanbul, and then, then go home.”From Russia with Love is one of those rare sequels that doesn’t just match or succeed over its predecessor, it absolutely knocks it out of the park. Steeped in spy-craft and Cold War machinations, this film moves along at a steady clip as James Bond is...

    “Welcome to Jamaica, Mr. Bond.” Dr. No could have been a disaster. Look no further than the first adaptation of a Fleming Bond novel, Casino Royale, a 1954 episode of Climax! which introduced audiences to Jimmy Bond, an American secret agent known for his card skills. But in the hands of producers, Albert Broccoli and Harry Saltzman, and director Terence Young, Dr. No becomes a solid start to...

    PSA: Since my own DVD crapped out halfway through the film (why buy anything?!!), Dr. No is available for free on PlutoTV, a free streaming service. PlutoTV has the film on demand unedited however there may be some commercial breaks spliced in. I only got one and it was while I was fast forwarding to where I left off. ...

    Welcome to the Bond Rewatch, everyone! I look forward to going through the Bond canon and getting to discuss and rate the films here with as many people as possible. The Marvel Rewatch that Veknoid and I hosted last year was pretty enjoyable. It’s always nice to get a group discussion going. I look forward to getting to discuss Bond with those who take the time to join us. It’s a marathon so stay...

    Seeing Captain Marvel in about an hour. Nice to see people back and jumping into the fray. I actually scheduled a mini-rewatch for myself leading into Endgame. Just the films that weren’t in this one as a “rewatch”: Black Panther, Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp. Helps that all 3 are on Netflix. Hope everyone is doing well! And yes, Bond rewatch coming up sometime later this year!...

And it was fun so thanks everyone! Yes, but objectivity is subjective as well. Of course, I'm much more of a subjective person than objective, but I could make a lot of arguments for all the...

On a more unrelated note, and I'm sure this has been pointed out earlier in the thread already, but isn't it weird how low our hosts Vek and Doc have rated the movies? There's only one 9 and four 8's after 38 ratings!...

    Iron ManOne of my two picks for best line in the MCU - I am Iron Man. This was such a high note to end the film on and showed us that the MCU was not going to go the standard route regarding secret identities for its superheroes.
