    It's a surreal experience to enter the Roger Moore era of the James Bond franchise and then have Roger Moore die. The timing is rather bizarre, and perhaps it was meant to be. We'll miss you, old chap!

    The Man with the Golden Gun is Francisco Scaramanga (Christopher Lee), and he's got his million-dollar sights on James Bond (Roger…

    James Bond (Sean Connery) is back, baby, and he's bigger, faster and stronger. He has to be because SPECTRE is super-pissed at him for killing their operative Dr. No. In fact, they're so pissed, that they have specifically trained a blond super-killing machine, Donald "Red" Grant (Robert Shaw), to rid the world of him... but first they will use…
