a stupid change to the system. GO BACK TO THE OLD AND TRIED ONE

Fifth film, and the solid start to the "how impossibly un-realistic can we make the whole thing and yet still sell tickets?" format. The pre-tile sequence actually has to do with the plot-line, so keep that in mind and try not to lose your sense of balance while watching. The space theft of nations' equipment goes on to be re-used in several more Bond films because, obviously, it's really *cool*! After all, there's no one out there in orbit pulling you over and questioning you about 'can you prove you own this here spaceship, Sir?' Blofeld is finally revealed to be... Donald Pleasance with a scar appliance around his right eye socket, as though a monocle was burned into the surface (which is odd, given we've never seen him anywhere near any action before this, so where did he receive the wound). Watch carefully during the attack on the Control Room and you'll see his white cat go totally berserk and leap to safety after a loud noise. There are at least three plot holes that I noticed in this story, so this also marks the start of Bond Films being best enjoyed by turning off the analytic part of one's brain. For one thing, this might be the first time we've seen an insane number of people arrive to help save Bond, armed to the teeth, and have covered a marathon distance in no time at all. Crowd scenes with guns and explosions will be popular from here on. Two wonderful lines stick out: 1) "Excellent choice, Bond-san, she is most sexiful!" and the near-shriek of Blofeld's "Kill Bond! Now!" There more in the novel that I would have liked to have seen, but it would have been at the expense of some of the more visual sections, which are key to a feature film. Evocative and fun, just not too "thinky".

Not the best of the early Bond films; it is especially painful to watch six foot two hairy chested Connery trying to pass himself off as a Japanese fisherman. Do like the theme music sung by Nancy Sinatra. Would perfer to hear a different singer perform it though.
