13. December 2013 14:52 by m | 0 Comments

With the news that James Bond is returning to ITV and the Christmas TV and Radio Times on sale, I can't help but think back to the early 1980s when I would be spending this weekend carefully plotting my holiday viewing with a highlighter pen, making those difficult choices when there was something I wanted to watch on both BBC1 and ITV, but we didn't have a VCR... 30 years ago this Christmas, I was highlighting The Spy Who Loved MeThe Spy Who Loved Me for Boxing Day...

James Bond 007 at the 1982 Academy Awards

15. November 2013 16:41 by m | 0 Comments

The 54th Academy Awards were broadcast on March 29, 1982 and hosted by Johnny Carson. Sheena Easton was among the performers, belting out "For Your Eyes OnlyFor Your Eyes Only" from the film of the same name, which was nominated for Best Original Song, in a most... unusual ... dance number which would not have looked out of place in the Star Wars Holiday Special. Bizarrely camp, with a dancing James Bond (thankfully Roger Moore did not take part), a very uncomfortable looking Richard Kiel as Jaws, and what was probably the last ever appearance of Harold Sakata as Oddjob, It really must be seen to be believed!

You Only Live Twice ABC Cut

3. October 2013 05:16 by m | 0 Comments

In 1975, the American TV network ABC confusingly and needlessly re-edited the beginning of You Only Live TwiceYou Only Live Twice. This version of the film begins, as it should, with the space capsule but just eighteen seconds into the scene it cuts to Bond already dead in his bed and then the credits begin! [More]

Siskel & Ebert Review The Living Daylights

30. August 2013 05:39 by m | 0 Comments

The Living DaylightsThe Living Daylights was one of my favorite Bond films, arriving shortly before my 13th Birthday. For me it had all the elements from the best James Bond movies: A gadget laden Aston Martin, plenty of action, a beautiful Bond Girl and a plot that was easy to follow and actually made sense (compare to The World Is Not EnoughThe World Is Not Enough).

However, Siskel & Ebert were not so easily impressed... [More]

Siskel & Ebert Review License to Kill

24. July 2013 04:59 by m | 0 Comments

Gene Siskel felt that Licence To KillLicence To Kill was very "uneven", ranging from "quite exciting to tedius", and that it has a sort of "dirty, unfinished look" that he can't quite explain. Unable to enthusiastically recommend the film, he somewhat reluctantly gives it a thumbs down, while Roger Ebert gives it thumbs up. I think this rather mixed review is spot on, and it's hard to disagree with either of them. [More]
