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.
Dia and Jackson are back again with their podcast about the 1967 parody film: Casino Royale. The movie might have 5 directors and be an utter mess but Orson Welles does a magic trick just for us and Woody Allen goes to hell for being a creep weirdo so it’s actually better than reality. Who can say what is good and bad. We can, on our podcast.
After taking turns each having to push the recording back a week, Dia and Jackson are here to cover the 1965 James Bond movie: Thunderball.
It goes on forever, half of it takes place underwater with everyone in scubing gear, but Terrence Young is back and thank god because he can actually frame a shot.
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
