In celebration of 007 turning 50, we decided it was time to tackle James Bond in this latest episode of the Film Junk Premium Podcast. With 23 films to choose from it was a tough task narrowing things down to a manageable number of movies. In the end, it was decided we should cover at least one film from each version of Bond and attempt to provide a look at the very best and the very worst of the series. With that in mind, we finally decided on: Goldfinger, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Live and Let Die, Moonraker, The Living Daylights, GoldenEye, and Casino Royale. We tackle some of the tougher questions including an in-depth discussion on the practicality of Baron Samedi’s flute radio, the origin of Jaws’ metal crotch, the impenetrable Fort Knox as a metaphor for Pussy Galore (but what does the radiated gold represent??), and the world’s most amazing Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant. So join us as we attempt to make sense of one of the longest running — and ultimately inconsistent — franchises of all time. From all of us here at Film Junk…happy 50th Jerzy Bondov!!
