Live and Let Die: What You Write About When You Write About LaLD

I’m going to try to make all the controversial pieces fit together in a mosaic of images and cultural artifacts in a roundabout way that somehow ends up shedding light on the movie’s two major talking points: Roger Moore taking the Walther from Sean Connery and the problematic topic of race.

#Bond25 Update: Codenamed “Shatterhand”

We learned an interesting tidbit about the soon-to-be-in-production Bond 25 this morning. Shooting begins on April 6th at Pinewood Studios under the working title "Shatterhand." Seeing as how "Shatterhand" serves as Ernst Stavro Blofeld alias in Ian Fleming's You Only...

Die Another Day Opening Remixed w/ Talking Heads

GoldenEye Opening Remixed w/ Bobby Brown

That I hadn't thought to set Bobby Brown's "Humpin' Around" to a Bond opening sequence is inexplicable. Could there have been a more perfect title and thematic connection between song and character?...

The Man With the Golden Gun Opening Remixed with Kanye West
