I would give it a 4/5. There's a lot of ridiculous points (especially Bond "transforming" into a Japanese fisherman and getting a fake wife for no reason other than have her killed) but there's tons of stuff I love, like the intro, Little Nellie, the all out battle in the volcano.

Also, rewatching it recently I realized that the plot of Tomorrow Never Dies is very similar to You Only Live Twice (a bad guy trying to get two nations into a war with each other).

His fake wife doesn't die.  She's the one that lives.  Aki dies.  I agree that the movie has a lot of great points. 

Tomorrow Never Dies has a much worse villain than YOLT though.  :p

OMG he was cheating on his fake wife!

LOL  No, he got married the day after she died.

Damn, I watched it only two weeks ago and I'm already messing up the details.

Never Say Never again

Octopussy

That is just domestic. But if that is how it went overseas as well I can see why Connery was done with Bond, and not just because he was getting old. He went head to head against Roger Moore and lost.

Did I mention I just purchased Robin and Marian on VHS with Sean Connery and......Robert Shaw!!

To be fair Ryan, NSNA wasn't an official Bond film and Octopussy was.  Connery did the best with what he had to work with which wasn't a very good movie.  He didn't return because he wouldn't have even if it made a billion dollars.  It was a one time deal and he was 53 years old at the time.

This was a bad time for Connery. Nothing was really working his way. I see why it was what it is. I will stop talking about it now though since this is about a different review. But as you can see above he really did not have too much going for him for a few years. I want to check out Sword of the Valiant! Even Highlander was just a lucky pick for him.

Edit:  Now I see it.

Leave George alone.  There's worse actors that have played Bond and this movie rocks!

The ski pursuit alone makes OHMSS worth watching.
