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...

Look Magazine reports from Nassau during the filming of ThunderballThunderball, 1965.

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).
