It's been so long since I watched my copy of Moonraker that I couldn't remember what caused me such full-body cringes the last time I watched it, aside from "Bond falls in a circus tent" and "incredulous pigeon." To all of our benefit, LS has excised these and any other dopey elements to leave us a pure gift from the film gods: 007 on a spaceship. (Let those words wash over you, fellow jaded cinephile.)

As if that weren't enough, we get more Jaws and one of the best Bond girls in Holly Goodhead, not to mention one of the all-time great so-bad-it's-poetry double entendres from M in the final scene. The villain is a warmed-over Blofeld rehash, but whatever, that's beside the point, when you have Jaws, you really don't need much else in the way of antagonists.

In short, it's Bond in Space, now without the wincing. Thanks, LS, you are doing the Lord's work.
