    This film is by far not perfect, in fact no Roger Moore or Bond film for that matter, is perfect. But each film is to their own and has interesting and equally negative elements within.

    I feel the best way to begin is with the base line narrative. The narrative revolves around a Russian General's plan of stealing a rare Fabergé egg, within this there is murder, deceit and Nuclear devastating threat. As a story it holds up fairly well…

    I guess it had been awhile since I had seen this one. Lots of childhood memories came flooding back as it went on. Even with its title, this is one of the more kid-friendly outings, so it's no wonder it left an impression. There's a fake horse, fake gator (that I remember being waaaay cooler), circus performers, and elephants. Of course there's also headshots, stabbings, and sex, so it's not a kids movie. 

    It doesn't hold up quite as much…

    Unofficial Bond Score Card

    Pre-title sequence: 4.5/5. I hate fake horse trailer. But the action is top-notch.
    Song/score: 3/5. Not a fan of the theme, but the romantic score does match the film well.
    Bond Girl: 3/5. Maude Adams does a good job in a strange role. It is nice to see an older Bond paired up with a woman near his age for once.
    Gadgets: 1.5/5. Not great, and often stupid.
    Set Pieces: 3/5. Some nice ideas, but they…

    Roger Moore essays the role of Ian Fleming's secret agent 007 for the sexth, that is sixth time, pardon the pun. James Bond's newest cinematic mission, other than surviving some serious competition from the likes of Return of the Jedi and Superman III, finds the veteran spy taking on an exiled Afghan, a subversive Soviet soldier, and Octopussy.
    John Glen, director of Moore's last assignment, For Your Eyes Only (1981) returns. The twelfth installment of the series shows no signs…

    Wow, this was way better than I expected it to be. Sure there are a few silly moments, typical of the Roger Moore Bond films, but I really enjoy it. There's some great acting, a brilliant John Barry score and a seriously overlooked theme song. Oh, and I prefer it to Goldfinger, yes you read that right, only slightly...

    It’s silly but it’s familiar.

    I usually can’t decide whether I like this more than Diamonds Are Forever. These two are easily my least favorites in the series and the only ones I really dislike. It’s not really that bad and there are some moments I enjoy, but overall it’s just so boring. It’s mostly a collection of random nonsense and without interesting characters or a decent storyline. Some of the few redeeming qualities are the production design and locations. Octopussy is one of the most forgettable leading Bond Girl in the series and Moore is basically Grandpa Bond at this point.

    Moore had intended to step down after "For Your Eyes Only", but when Sean Connery agreed to return as Bond in a competitors' remake of "Thunderball", the producers felt that an experienced Bond had to return to compete.

    Unfortunately the film is rather dull and forgettable (I barely remembered any of it and had to watch it a second time to remember it had something to do with those Fabrege Eggs), and of the two competing Bond films released in…

    Two fun things I noticed:

    1. I would not have been surprised if someone told me the twins were both played by Gary Oldman.

    2. Why was there a huge painting of Billy Bob Thornton, with a mustache and beard, in that meeting room in Moscow at the beginning of the movie?

    ... Faberge eggs.

    This is slowly becoming my preferred Roger Moore movie. It's maybe the perfect distillation of who Moore was as a Bond, which is a clown with a dad bod. And there's a reason I prefer him to Sean Connery; he's actually in on the joke. I really don't want to be too harsh on Connery but he comes across these days as an overconfident, under-intelligent alpha bro. While, with Moore, there's a humble self-awareness that has helped his films age much better.

    The 80s were a weird time when you could get away with calling a mainstream movie Octopussy. It's like already its own porn parody title. Hmm, I wonder what that would actually be. Oh wait, obviously This Ain't Octopussy XXX, sadly.
