Bond Fifty: Views & Kills


A one shot! Now I feel like I shortchanged the last eight movies.


A View to a Kill

(Isn’t that teaser poster great? I like it a lot more than the official one, with Bond and Stacey on the bridge. Features artwork by Dan Goozee.)

Oh, look, another ski chase. I mean, another one-legged ski chase. I mean, another snowmobile chase. Ah, snowboard! We haven’t done that, right?

I find it hard to believe the British government would fund the development of a luxury sex submarine shaped like a giant grey dildo. But okay, I’ll let this one slide.

And then we DAAAANCE INTO THE FIIIIIIRE!!! Omg, this song is still great. I feel like I’m in grade school again.

EVERYBODY IS SO OLD. I get it now. They’re trying to make Roger Moore look youthful by surrounding him with OLDER PEOPLE.

This is the least subtle hit job I’ve ever seen. She might as well just have walked up to him and shot him.

I kind of want to be dressed like everybody at this chateau.

I’m still kind of pissed at them for what they did to poor Patrick McNee’s character in this film.

It’s comforting to know that dicey hot tub places look super-tacky even in James Bond movies.

“Stock. James Stock.” I… see what you did there.

Whiskas product placement? Really? And does the cat’s bowl say PUSSY on it??

This romance seems more believable when you consider that Stacey does seem to think about her granddad a lot.

Oh, look, an Apple //c. Don’t trust her, James, she said she didn’t have any money!


Now they’re in the egg chamber from Alien only all the eggs are dynamite.

And that is how you make a proper “Fuck you, motherfucker” face. Thank you, Grace Jones.

Sneaking up on someone with a blimp: the preferred abduction method for psychopaths.

Say whatever else you will about the movie, but fistfight on the suspension cables of the Golden Gate Bridge is a set piece worthy of Hitchcock.

Oh! It does say PUSSY! And Q is kind of a dirty old pervert, isn’t he?

    I have fond memories of this one from long ago. I really like it when I was a kid. Sort of torn about rewatching it again.

  • "Omg, this song is still great."

    As is everything else Duran Duran did riiiiiiiight up until that point.
