NEVER SAY PODCAST AGAIN
Guns, Girls and Colonialism: that’s right, it’s a James Bond podcast! Jackson and Dia are going on a journey week by week through the movies of the UK’s most famous secret agent, starting with Dr. No and taking us all the way up through the release of Bond 25.
We hope you can join us as we relive and reconsider the memories of our favourite imperial assassin across over a half-century of movies.
CW: Frank discusson of a very blatant rape scene. It’s unavoidable when talking about this movie, and it sucks a lot, so just be warned going in.
Dia and Jackson return after two mostly great times with Connery’s turn as the world’s greatest colonialism cop, to watch Goldfinger, the most successful Bond movie of its day, a worldwide phenomenon and template for the rest of the series.
There’s just one small problem: it’s a fucking terrible movie.
This week, Dia and Jackson are watching From Russia With Love, an absolutely fantastic movie that everyone and their dog has been stealing from for the last fifty years. We talk about Bond’s complete and total lack of masculine appeal, a ridiculous catfight, and the man, the myth, the motherfucking legend: Ali Kerim Bay
It’s a new podcast!!! Hello!! Jackson Tyler (@headfallsoff) and Dia Lacina (@dialacina) are here to watch every James Bond movie from Dr. No to Whatever The Hell They Call The One Coming Out Next Year, and to podcast about it as they go. I am very, very excited for this podcast and I hope you can all go on this journey with us.
This week, we’re watching Dr. No, the very first James Bond movie, released in 1962 and directed by Terrence Young. We talk about the sexual politics of Bond’s Gun, the weird racial power rankings put forth by the movie and the chillest supervillain base of all time.
