    For Your Eyes Only

    ★★½

    The twelfth installment in my ongoing rewatch of the 007 canon.

    Roger Moore's fifth outing as James Bond was far better than the previous installment, Moonraker. That's damning with faint praise, to be sure, but For Your Eyes Only does have its charms.

    The eleventh installment in my ongoing rewatch of the 007 canon.

    The pigeon did a double take.

    James Bond (portrayed by Roger Moore again) inexplicably drove a gondola onto land in Venice, through St. Mark's Square. A pigeon saw this absurdity and did a double take.

    This film is an embarrassment and the worst film yet in the Bond canon. Everyone who worked on the movie should be ashamed.

    Simply amazing. A rare film experience. I only wish I could watch it again for the first time.
