Bond is back, and Pierce Brosnan is at the top of his game—or perhaps just past it. This is not one of my favorites, but I find that on revisiting it my opinion changes in what I think is a very interesting way. Listen to find out at whose feet I lay the blame.
Our villain is kind of mushy. Our Bond girls lovely if a little hard to believe. I don’t have much trouble getting thru it even tho I find it quite flat, but you may find that I repeat myself too much and talk too much about the guns and whether or not Bond is sexist, misogynistic, or just a sex addict.
I’m watching the region 1 DVD. Start the commentary after the MGM lion and United Artists logo with the gun-barrel sequence, on the countdown.
