    - Sticks in my head more than expected


    Christopher Lee is excellent in this one, though bond probably could have realised sooner that he kept making his gun at every possibility

    Never would have thought the stereotypical Texan would get such a large role

    Theme song ranking - 8.5/10

    Hard to believe this film came out 2 years after the previous one. When I first watched it 5 years ago I didn't think much of the Dalton films but this one really does holds up to the modern Craig bonds.

    Though at the same time, I'm not sure Bond joining the pre-cursor to Al Qaeda would sit well with modern audiences too well

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Bond No.4:

    Theme song rating - 5/10
    Tom Jones sounds great but there's something about it that's instantly forgettable.

    The biggest danger was James Bond's Mink glove.
    Started off very well with even more insight into SPECTRE and its operation to steal two nuclear bombs. Cool to see all the 00 agents in one room too.
    However the operation fell apart from the 2nd half in the Caribbean as soon as the Shark started getting involved. Along with the repetitive use of the underwater motif and an extremely anticlimatic scuba diving fight I probably won't return to this film anytime soon.

    Don't worry Harry these reviews are back now

    Theme Song rating - 8/10
    Quite a bop, Nancy Sinatra smashes it. Though I do just keep thinking
    of the Regular Features jingle each time I hear it.

    Forgot about Roald Dahl writing this one which was a surprise.
    The most classic spy movie tropes in one movie.
    Maximum Blofeld
    Bond takes a girl in a bikini up a volcano and sends her back down despite having multiple sets of clothes on him

    Hoping this is the last film they turn bond Japanese...despite his first class degree in oriental languages from the University of Cambridge
