This is a fantastic distillation and re-imagining of the original trilogy films. The story is mostly the same, with some well considered alterations that work really well. I didn't really...

I continue to enjoy Kerr's reworking of these movies. There's a lot of cutting and restructuring here, and for the most part it works very well. ...

I'll admit, I've always been to two minds with this movie. The overall plot, locations, and action sequences have always been classic Bond for me. But Lazenby as a one-off...

Thunderball has always been among my favorites of the franchise. But some sequences have always kind of dragged. This edit addresses almost all of that. ...
