    The Man with the Golden Gun

    ★★★

    The previous movie had a henchman named "Tee Hee", this one has one named "Nic Nac". Please don't tell me in the next movie is a guy named "Poo Poo" or "Ding Dong"!

    Anyway, this was one of the more entertaining Bonds. It was again too long and full of scenes that have no right to be in the movie at all (although some are at least cool or weird enough to make me give them a pass), but the…

    Maybe it’s just my love for the classic slapstick subgenre in general, but this is my favourite Spielberg movie. The gags come fast, most of them are silly, but almost all of them stick one way or another. And the spectacle, that dominates the 2nd half of the movie (and there is a lot of it), is as perfectly staged as you expect it from a Spielberg movie.
