    a favorite Bond film for me. Roger Moore is the real deal and Maud Adams is very nice.....do not have the film.....

    The one I remember the least about...even 5 minutes after watching it.

    The Cold Open: A hilariously bad mustache sits upon an old and leathery man. It then flies an adorably tiny plane and blows things up.

    The Titles and Song: Binder went to a Pink Floyd show and discovered lasers. This rather meh choice clashes badly with Rita Coolidge's sleepy, low energy, adult contemporary theme.

    The Bond: Moore truly lives up to his status as the 'Clown Bond' in…

    Octopussy is the one with the Faberge eggs. Also, the one with that title. Also, the first complete Bond I ever saw. To me, it's a crystallization of the Roger Moore Bond formula, with a return to jokeyness and an approach that values set pieces over actual plot. There's a pretty aimless hour in the center of the film where Bond goes to India to meet his leading lady, who doesn't really get to do much except try to out-Galore…

    This film is set in Udaipur, and as part of the preparation for places that we are hoping to go in December, this was our first stop in films. Odd, you might think, but we have watched a lot of James Bond together over the decades, and it was a light place to start. Rather than watching something with crushing poverty, or revisiting the terrifying moments in Lion, which we did in February.

    I missed that it was filmed in…

    Coming out the same year as the non-Eon produced Never Say Never Again, this sixth entry to star the always reliably entertaining Roger Moore is a movie I can’t help but enjoy. It is a prime example of the silly action-comedy tone that dominated most of Moore’s tenure as 007.

    There tends to be two camps when it comes to the James Bond fandom, those who prefer their Bond to be serious and down-to-earth like the Daniel Craig entries or…

    I have seen Octopussy so many times I cannot review it even remotely sensibly, I spent a good portion of my childhood watching and rewatching this film. So here are some random observations that occurred to me on this viewing.

    - The plot is incomprehensible. Faberge Eggs and Steven Berkoff a understandable plot do not make.
    - The clown bursting through the glass doors in the opening is hilarious to me. Just imagine being that woman.
    - Bond's crocodile disguise…

    I feel like I should have liked this more, but I’m kind burned out on Bond, so I probably will continue my little marathon later in 2018. This was fine but on a Bond break

    Bond dressed as a Clown? Roger Moore looking like James Bonds Father.

    I would have loved to see this version with James Brolin as James Bond.

    The indian sets are lavish, beautiful and out of this world.
    Ken Adams is one of the best production designers ever.

    It’s nice to see that, after working for The Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2 brought their family in and found work as Octopussy’s henchwomen.

    Nach For Your Eyes Only war Octopussy aus diversen Gründen wieder ein Rückschritt für das 007-Franchise. Dabei macht der Film im Kern nicht viel falsch, dafür aber im Detail.

    Aber zunächst die positiven Dinge, die bereits in der Opening Sequenz auffallen. Da wären zum einen die immer besser werdenden Spezialeffekte, der bessere Umgang mit Green Screen, die großartige Stuntwork und die Ausstattung im Allgemeinen. Es folgt der Bondsong, wie schon der Vorgänger For Your Eyes Only ist auch All Time…
