Bond is back, and Pierce Brosnan takes his final bow. Faldor and I take it to pieces. We examine the unusualness of the opening prison sequence, parallels between Madonna and Margaret Thatcher, and if Bjork would have been better than either of them, the concept of a steroid overdose, and the complexity of the villain’s plan. We lament the awful CGI, double agents within MI6, Michael Madsen, and the lack of penguins in the Arctic. We speculate about Bond’s car being a hybrid so it can sneak up on people when invisible. And I do some near-perfect impressions of famous people.
I’m watching the region Blu-ray. Start the commentary after the MGM lion logo with the gun barrel sequence, on the countdown.
