Here it is (FINALLY), Part VI of my 12-part review of the James Bond 50th Anniversary blu-ray box set. I apologize for the extreme lateness for this entry. I actually watched these movies a while ago and just now got around to writing them up. I just got busy with other things. I’ll do better in the future.
With this entry in the series, I have officially reached the halfway point of my journey through the James Bond franchise. As you’ll see below, this pairing of Moonraker and For Your Eyes Only carried with it both good and bad things. Yet I still enjoyed myself and I hope you enjoy reading my thoughts on them.
Of course, you can read my past Bond 50 posts here. And follow me around the internet with the links below.

This summer the two studios which own rights to Marvel characters and aren’t named Marvel will duke it out at the box office. Sony will release the hotly anticipated (and lately scrutinized) Amazing Spider-Man 2. Without a major Marvel studios release, the only competition for Amazing 2 will be Bryan Singer’s return to the helm of the X-Men franchise in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Early excitement would indicate DoFP is the more likely to win the superhero box office battle this summer.
Note: Come back Thursday for a special Thursday edition of Trailer Tuesday for the release of the Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer. Continue reading
