Roger Moore got a rough deal with his Bond movies. I always wished that they had tightened up his films and kept them from be so ridiculously over the top. Now I have that chance.

This is a great edit. I had to go back to look up what was missing, it was that seamless. If I'm going to watch Moonraker, THIS is the version I want to watch.

Better than the original, I'll probably never watch that in its entirety again (unless I decide to edit it, feel inspired by LastSurvivor). I still nod off once on board the space station, but edit is paced well enough to hold my attention and be entertained. The Jaws and Dolly cuts were fairly amusing, and the best you can do with those scenes while preserving Jaws character turn.

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.

A really enjoyable edit of the infamous Moonraker that shows there's a fun movie in there, buried beneath the embarrassing stuff. To be honest I would have liked to see a few more extensive cuts - especially with terrible ADR'd dialogue throughout - but I appreciate that these probably weren't possible.

There's also a really cool commentary with LastSurvivor explaining his choices.

Perfect video and audio editing throughout. Highly recommended for fans of Moore-era Bond.
