I didn't say I liked it.

I liked it well enough, but that's because I was about 11 when I saw it and was quite impressionable - "oooh, space, battles, Space Shuttles, awesome!!!!"  ;D

I can't remember who the Bond Girl was in that film.

Lois Chiles as "Dr. Holly Goodhead"

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

Yeah, I just googled it - can't say as I really remembered her in the way that I did with other more, erm, outstanding Bond Girls. ::)

Subtlety was not a strength of the earlier Bonds.

I actually knew the family. The men in it weren't overly fond of the name either.   ::)

Yeah, that's pretty much the same reason(s) I enjoyed Moonraker as well.  Plus, didn't Jaws have a Face Heel Turn and meet a girl in that one?

You mean a Heel–Face Turn, but yeah, he hooks up with a girl in pig-tails.

And Moore played the whole movie with a straight face. Now that's some acting.  :go-on:

Do you recall his earlier TV series, the Saint?  In that he was sort of a Robin Hood character, working to catch nasty crooks and save the life savings of little old ladies.
It always seemed that he just played Bond as an older, world-wearier Saint.  Things were desperate, but never really serious.
If he told a villainess that he would beat her up,. It was just an empty threat.  He'd never do something so...so cadish.
Whereas if Sean Connery told a woman of evil that he would hurt her, you knew it would happen.
Watch the opening of Diamonds Are Forever.  He wants revengehe for Tracy s death

"We've got the torpedo damage temporarily shored up, the fires out and soon will have the ship back on an even keel. But I would suggest, sir, that if you have to take any more torpedoes, you take 'em on the starboard side."   Pops Healy, DCA USS Lexington.
