Weekly Debriefing 012

Begin Transmission.

• Sorry for the lack of posts over the last couple of weeks. I've been under the gun (a Walther PPK, of course) on several freelance assignments. I did come into possession of a few new spy-fi discs (courtesy of a fellow aficionado), and will be reviewing some of them here.

• My only spy-fi purchase this past week was the Blu-Ray special edition disc of Casino Royale (2006). I'm slowly building up my Bond Blu-Ray collection, and can't wait for them to get around to On Her Majesty's Secret Service and The Spy Who Loved Me.

• This week's Bond film was You Only Live Twice. Man, that movie makes no sense if you think too hard about it. I love the spectacle - Ken Adams' sets are amazing - and it has several extremely well-staged action sequences, but that script! It's Roald Dahl's Tales of the Inexplicable! Still, it's fun.

Look for more posts this week.

End Transmission.

Glad to see I'm not the only one that finds YOLT to be a mess. I read so much praise for the film then I go back for another viewing only to be stunned by its high level of stupidity. Great sets though and I love the theme song.
