Bondfest 2006: Moonraker

Dan Bondfest 2006

Finally had a chance to swallow one of the worst James Bond films of all time. After Casino Royale, it was hard, but I managed to get through it.

Moonraker: Bond goes to outer space to stop a madman determined to wipe out humanity and replace them with his Aryan race of superhumans. Mmmmkay. I really don’t think I need to go into too much more detail on this one, do I? The jokes start coming fast and furious, and one could rightly argue that it was Moonraker that started to turn Bond into a self-parody, going above and beyond the absurd. Luckily the next one is a bit more grounded….
