The Spy Who Loved Me ★★★

This is a movie of contrast. The ski chase scene has terrible music but ends with the awesome Union Jack parachute. Other things I liked:
• Moore’s poker face when cracking a lackluster joke about delving to Egypt’s treasures
• Jaws’s inexplicable car-tear-down fit
• Lawrence of Arabia scene
• Shisha gun
• Q noticing that the typeface is Italian
• The Lotus
• Helpful bad guy tells Bond he has four minutes
• Bond reading the nuclear sub communication manual and pecking the keyboard
