<i>The Living Daylights</I> (1987) | Villains
Ever since Red Grant in From Russia with Love , the Bond series has loved to give us big, blonde henchmen. There's actually not that many of them, but there's still enough repetition that I usually groan and shrug when I see one. Necros is a step above the ...

<i>The Living Daylights</i> (1987) | Bond
Actors and Allies Before Daniel Craig, Timothy Dalton was my favorite Bond. Until recently, I would have told you that it was Connery, but too many rewatches of You Only Live Twice and Diamonds Are Forever have changed that. It's not that those are bad movi...

The Double-O Movie Universe

Atlas' Barbarians of Vengeance [Guest Post]

<i>A View to a Kill</i> (1985) | Villains
I know this is the point, but May Day is so weird. Grace Jones, man. I never know what she's doing, but I always end up sort of liking it. You always know exactly how she's feeling, whether she's glowering or laughing maniacally for no reason. And those emo...

I'm kind of surprised that Kimberly Jones even gets a name. All she does is pilot the iceberg boat and "keep Bond company" on the way out of Siberia, but I like her. She seems to enjoy her job and why wouldn't she? She gets to drive that cool, swanky ride a...
