We made it to the middle of the year! I can’t believe it’s June already, and I’m wondering where all the time went. Seems like this year has gone by faster than most, even though I seem to say that at the beginning of every month. We woke up to some very upsetting and disturbing […]
“Who’s funeral is it?” … “Yours.” My partner/fiance Adam (aka Mr Film Grimoire) is currently finishing up a whirlwind boys’ trip with his friends in the U.S. of A – they’ve been roadtripping across the majestic land of America from Los Angeles to New Orleans and having (from what I’ve heard) a lot of fun.

Lately I’ve been collecting lists of my favourite mini-moments in film. I would define the term ‘mini-moment’ as a tiny part of a film that may seem inconsequential in the grand scheme of the whole film, but strikes an impression on its own as completely memorable, sometimes moreso than the rest of the film.

My strange obsession with this highly special and arguably terrible Bond film continues! Here’s the second review I’ve written for MovieRob‘s fantastic 007 December Blogathon. If you want to know more about my admittedly poor taste in Bond films, read on! ***** Moonraker (1979, dir. Lewis Gilbert) is also known as “Bond in Space”, because […]
It was only the other day that I suddenly remembered one of my favourite Bond films is partially set in New York City. That stellar film is Live and Let Die (1973), starring Roger Moore as famous secret agent James Bond; his first time playing the role. Lots of people dislike Live and Let Die […]
Officially my fifth favourite Bond film, Moonraker (1979) is the fourth film that stars Roger Moore as the famous British secret agent. It’s often known by the colloquial title of “Bond In Space”, but there’s a bit more subtext and nuance in the film than simply being a typical space drama.
