Hi there Bob
Matthews. Theme song. Fucking delightful and magical indeed.
Glad to see you guys are back. I know this is free content, but I’m saddened every Thursday I don’t see a new James Bonding.
#Pigeondoubletake Everything about Moonraker is the most terrible. The dog with the shifty eyes right after the pigeon is also really terrible. In fact, that whole sequence might be the worst minute of any bond film. To be fair, I haven’t seen Die Another Day since it was in theaters so I am probably forgetting something.
Man with the Golden Pun?
Matt G’s ‘guy in an elevator with Eva Green’ character. DYING.
Whats the time stamp for that?
59 minutes just about exactly.
Agreed. I listen to all the Bondings multiple time (except for the one I couldn’t listen to once) but this was the first one I listened to twice in the same night.
This just in…http://metro.co.uk/2014/06/27/bond-24-filming-delayed-until-december-so-former-007-writers-can-pep-up-the-script-4778040/http://metro.co.uk/2014/06/27/bond-24-filming-delayed-until-december-so-former-007-writers-can-pep-up-the-script-4778040/
I picture the end of a Bond Battle Royale as, yes, Craig vs Connery. A “They Live” fight where Connery is trying to get Craig to put on the powder blue day suit.
Well, it’s a good theme song, but it’s no: https://soundcloud.com/wildride-robert-roy/james-bonding-being-mean-to
For Tracy Bond, either Kaya Scodelario or Michelle Keegan.
Oh, and the pigeon double take is clearly worse because it’s exactly what they intended. They still make movies where people blow up or insta-freeze when exposed to vacuum, so I can excuse them thinking, back in the 70s, that the guy might blow up like that.

Great episode! But…How do you square Charles Dance playing Blowfeld when he’s already been in a different Bond Movie? He played Claus the Henchman in For Your Eyes Only. I guess the franchise set the precedent with Charles Gray already?
I’ve been rewatching the old Roger Moore flicks in preparation of what’s to come. If you were so hard on Brosnan for his “hurt acting”, you’ve got to comment on Moore’s “thinking acting”–the shifty eyes and raised eyebrow. We get it! You’re thinking!
I was just re-listening to the first episode of the podcast and when Matt & Matt are counting the movies to figure out where they’ll end they end up on For Your Eyes Only but in later episodes they have said they’ll also do Never Say Never Again and so I think the real last movie they will end up doing is Octopussy?
I personally enjoyed the part in Thunderball when he shoots the clay pigeon without looking.
