I don't think that the idea of Bond going into space is not thaT BAD really but how they did it in MoonRaker was terrible. But I,m looking forward to this podcast

I definately don't feel that Moonraker is the worst Bond film. It was not a good one, but it had its good parts. I feel kind of so-so on the whole in space thing. I think I'm most disappointed just because they completely caved the the whole Star Wars space-mania thing, and I feel that Bond should be somewhat above that sort of thing. Although he didn't really know how to do much with the space ship because the Bond girl (or women) did it all for him.

Somebody's going to destroy me for this, but....


For my money, Die Another Day is my least favorite Bond movie. I won't say its the worst, because on this message board that could get me some serious hate. :)

Now, Astronaut training: Awesome idea! This is the 21 century, after all...

Actually, I'm with you on that one. Die Another Day was the 20th Bond film, celebrating 40 years of Bond but it was so badly made.

Selecting Lee Tamahori as the director was a crucial mistake. There were so much in this film, that just didn't feel right. It just didn't feel like Bond. For example... THE SLOW MOTION!

Wow, was that a major cash in on The Matrix' bullet time or what? Another obvious mistake with this film was the whole parasurfing a 50 foot tsunami. Come on...

Sure, the references to other Bond movies in this film were fun, but the rest of the movie was a shamble.

And yet it started out so promising...

I'm with you on that. When I saw it in the theater I was actually embarrassed for it. The film exposed itself in the gun barrel ... with the bullet flying at you. Come on!

I think my least favorite shot is that FAKE, CGI'd ... (Worse than the para sailing) Jinx "jumping" (Falling as animated on computer) from the sea wall and making a miraculous 500ft. swan dive into shallow rocky waters. She looks like a computer character in that.

And the way they fudged the lighting and softened it and "enhanced" the colors with the use of digital grading ....

And the polt didnt make ANY sense! Colonel Moon becomes Graves? Where did Graves come from? Did he kill a real guy and take his identity? And DNA therapy? and the psychedelic mirrored hallway ... maybe a tribute to the CIRCUS in Octopussy?? Or not .... and the "Psychedelic Light Mask" ...

Oh God ... NOW Im on it ...

"YO MAMA!" .... "Read this, bitch" ... ETC.

Other than the CGI Jinx ... the other one that pisses me off is (a) the laser fight scence .... the shot of Pierce raising his fists in the manner of a 1930's caricature of the Irish drunk with lightsaber-like beams flying about .... and (b) Shes laying on a bed of diamonds??? The sharpest, hardest substance in nature .... is she bleeding to death??? Maybe another Octopussy nod to the bed of nails?

ugh. I need to watch the stairwell fight in CR now to cleanse my soul.

Lazenby :D haha!

Funny stuff and so true...

Die Another Day is the worst Bond movie of all time. I mean c'mon, it parodies itself sometimes.

"I'm Mr. Kill"
"Now there's a name to die for"

WORST BOND LINE EVER :!:

The invisable Aston Martin :roll:

The stupid robot suit that Graves wears that was apparently made in about 5 minutes on the plane after he tells the guy to make it more 'ergonomic'.

But most of all because it of the absolutely dreadfully appallingly terrible abismally laughable CGI. It was everywhere. :shock:

For a franchise that always says it likes doing stuff 'for real' with stuntwork and visual effects they really let themselves go.

I walked out of the cinema saying "was that a Bond film?" at the end of it.

Bin it, burn it, just don't watch it. In fact, build a small case for it with a little hammer and a pane of glass which reads "only for use in extreme circumstances"...

Excellent rant Lazenby. I also have a disliking for Die another Day, but i don't think I could ever have formulated a more cunning critique of the film that yours. I swear, I was still laughing the third time I read it.

that part about Brosnan immitating an Irish drunk really got to me.

great stuff.
