You Only Live Twice - Bond 50 Box Set Blu-ray Review

Bond and on and on and on …

But this time … He’s turning Japanese, I think He’s turning Japanese, I really think so!

And which outrageous entry are we taking a look at today, then?

Well … it’s got a massive villain stronghold inside a volcano! It’s got Blofeld stoking his pussy whilst feeding his piranhas – or is it the other way around? It’s got Bond moonlighting as a ninja! It’s got Little Nellie!

Which means that it’s just got to be … You Only Live Twice!!!

By now, Sean Connery’s feet were itchier than his trigger finger. The fun and frivolity of his third glorious and golden-coated outing as 007 had gone on to become excessive overkill with Thunderball, in which everything had threatened to spiral out of control. The endless production schedules and the infuriating press junket...

Thanks for the review, lots of good info.

Completely disagree with the summary on the film itself though... this for me is the ultimate Bond film. It's got the best of everything; space rockets that eat other space rockets, NINJAS!, hot Japanese girls, Sean Connery, Pleasance as Blofeld, Little Nelly!, one of the greatest Bond themes of all time, amazing style, a huge underground super base that gets attacked in a massive ninja fueled siege, a very hot villainess, brilliant action scenes and stunts, a great screenplay from Roald Dahl... the list goes on and on.

The definitive and best Bond ever for me.

Aye ... it's got all those elements but, as I said, it's still the film that I can't help but pick fault with. Against my instincts and my sheer love of the movie, these little niggles just seem to jump out at me every time I sit down to watch it.

But, hey, I still love it to bits ... coz it's Bond. :smashin:

Cheers dude,

Chris McEneany :devil:

You're right though about Japan-ising of Bond though. Completely unnecessary but I can't but help love that part of the film.
