Welcome everyone. This blog mainly exists as a way of tracking all the movies I've been watching and some of the initial thoughts and general feelings I've had about them.

Rating System

5/5 - Fantastic movies; movies which need to be seen and enjoyed by everyone.

4/5 - Movies which are very good but don’t have that spark which compels you to make others watch them as well.

3/5 - Average movies; watchable and enjoyable, but nothing which elevates them higher. The baseline all movies are given before watching.

2/5 - Can be watched but really bland and forgettable.

1/5 - Minimal to no reason to watch these films. It may have some redeeming factors e.g. it’s so bad it’s good or there’s one character that’s awesome enough to make it not a total waste of time.

0/5- Total waste of time. Nothing redeemable about these films.

As with every review blog/site, this is all my own personal opinion so feel free to take everything with a grain of salt.

Also I'm Scottish so all reviews will be in UK English. Get used to theatre, colour and words ending in -ised.

This would be the last time we see Blofeld or have any links to SPECTRE in a James Bond film. Blofeld isn’t named or his face shown in this film due to on going legal matters with Ian Fleming’s co-author on an original Thunderball screenplay Kevin McClory.
The problems with McClory and United Artists are almost as long as the Bond series itself and quite interesting to read about if you want some further back story. It is because of this dispute that Never Say Never Again would eventually be made in 1983 (the same year as Octopussy) and why it’s just another interpretation of Thunderball.
This scene also gave us some of the oddest lines in the series “I’ll buy you a delicatessen Mr Bond….in stainless steel”. Maybe Blofeld is the only one that knows of Bond’s long held dream of owning a restaurant.
