I really should look these up as my memory of what happens in which film is clearly pretty faint.  I haven't seen most of these for many years.  They're still entertaining.

And, yes, Jaws stuck to magnet with his stainless steel teeth and then hooking up with nerdy girl only to find they wouldn't be allowed to mate turned them away from the dark side.

There's some stunning scenery in some of these films and exquisitely beautiful women.

one of the staples of Burn Notice was a production notice known as "bikini vision" and Bond films have it in spades.

I've been meaning to watch that.

I saw most of Barbie on the plane.  It was dreadful.  As subtle as a train wreck.  I got through about 70% of it before throwing in the towel and reading a book instead.

Just wrapped up Octopussy, and much like FYE, it is far too long a movie. Oddly enough, I was under the misconception that kitty Galore would be a returning bond girl in this one. Nope, wrong... bond girl.

Onward!

Funny you mention A View To A Kill, that's next!

I quite liked A View to a Kill.  It was campy but Grace Jones is pretty entertaining as a villain.

Grace Jones is fantastic, but honestly they wasted her on that role.

two hours and fourteen minutes and her character development is relegated to about two in the mine.

What's strange is I'm on to Dalton now, movies are the same length as the Moore bonds, but it doesn't feel it. The living daylights is a hell of a romp, and when Bond is angry, I buy it. Dalton brings a rage to bond, and it's magnificent.



I had to find ahem, another streaming service to watch License to Kill, but that opening Sequence is magic. Everything exciting about bond, and no tragedy mixed in. I was sure that was the way things were going, and it was pleasantly subverted.

LOL, I was completely wrong, the movie goes dark AF after the credits.
Also, the silhouette girls, on this one, wowzers, they pushed the envelope to full.

A documentary about how humanity around the globe coped with the COVID contagion, Amazingly it starring  Matt Damon. Kate Winslet, L.Fishburne  and many others.
Amazingly it was filmed in 2011 ??? ???.
Has someone in Hollywood a time machine tucked away in their garage ?

Are you referring to Contagion?
It's more prescient than a documentary.
Filmed in 2011, unless you are referring to something else.

How was it?  Sounds like it might be decent with that cast.

As per the covid crisis tbh A Good film.
 But the similarity of the Covid crises mirrored a lot of what happened in the film  :-[

X. It was good enough, had a certain feel for color and the time period it was set in.  I enjoyed it.
